Most Compatabile With: Pisces
October 28th is another turning point in Sun's transition through Scorpio, as it brings the necessity of change with urgency that cannot be ignored. People born on this date feel the need to push themselves over their sensitive emotional limits and find themselves in fragile situations that could get them hurt one too many times.
This is a row of high sensitivity and those born on October 28th have their heart to attend to, before taking any rash, instinctive moves. To avoid unnecessary pain in their life and cuts and bruises that don’t have to be obtained, they are to slow down, breathe, and learn to combine their instinct with their emotional side as tenderly as possible. They will sometimes be silent, as if they were always expecting the next move of people in their life, and sometimes aggressive in their ways, imposing emotional clarity on those who aren’t ready to break their defenses just yet.
The battle of ego and colliding loyalties is to be overcome in their life, and they are to always remember that there is a middle ground for any conflicted situation that might arise. Struggling won’t get them far and if they resist from the point of distant fences of their inner world, they won’t find the touch of souls and the point of contact for their close relationships. Their shields should be down only when they feel intimate and warm around someone, and their self-respect is to always be unquestionable.

These lines connect lives of those born on this date with faith and special repetitive choices, rituals and routines that make all the difference and bring light or strength into their world. While they may be a bit superstitious, they are able to see frail synchronicities of the outer world and if they develop their talent and read all those signs by the road, they will learn to follow the flow and embrace all storms and highs and lows of the tides.
With Moon standing as their guiding light in this lifetime, we can see that an incredible level of tenderness and acceptance of all their emotions is needed to blossom. They need support and they will find it only if they allow themselves to feel whatever they might be feeling, even if those emotions are ones of anger, hate, jealousy, powerlessness or sorrow. All emotions in their life are there to be let go of, showing the way towards new experiences they are meant to embrace.
Love and Emotions
The importance of emotional clarity in lives of those born on October 28th is vast and always presents the main issue they need to attend to. Relationships will manifest and mirror their own inner state, and all quarrels, fights and difficulties with their loved ones are meant to make them see the ease of existing they should be feeling just as they are. Too many hazy issues might happen, and they could get bruised, tossed aside by someone they love, or devalued. However, they are to learn about the importance of all those things they bring into lives of others and find the point where self-acceptance turns to healthy interactions with the outer world.
They need a sensitive partner with healthy defense mechanisms, someone who isn’t afraid to dive into the ocean of emotion, and someone to look them in the eye even when things become tough to handle. They are to bravely pursue the right instinct and feeling they wish to share and shouldn’t settle for less than what their heart truly desires out of romance.
