October 4th Zodiac

In One Word: Structural

Most Compatabile With: Aquarius
A date such as October 4th carries a sense of nostalgy and a shade to it that pushes us down, so we can swim out better and stronger than we were before. Those born on this date feel it to be their obligation to reach the depths of any issue before coming to surface, and this could make them tired or frustrated if they aren’t simultaneously taking care of their daily needs, keeping them met and surrounding themselves with joyful and light energies and people.
Limited by issues their ancestors left to their inheritance, people born on the 4th of October will easily blend in, but won’t easily step out when they need to. This could keep them tied to systems that don’t function well enough, where they focus on fixing them instead of getting out and creating a new system to belong to. However difficult their lives might get, they understand that everything can be healed and don’t believe in partial and temporary solutions to any problem at hand. This is their great strength but also something that keeps them in constant loops of dissatisfaction if they don’t vent and create their own inner support to come out of issues that are too dark or simply obsolete for their future development.
The Sabian symbol for Libra representatives born on October 4th:
A bit strict in its imagery, this symbol has a critical note to it, showing how little one might see to hold on to opinions and relationships that don’t have enough room to grow. The important thing here is to remain at peace with the idea of sharing knowledge, without ego jumping out of its healthy track. People born on this date are to see everyone else as equal, no matter their position, ranking, or their role in the social circle they belong to. Although this comes naturally to their heart, they could overthink things and have trouble setting clear personal boundaries without disrespecting those who also have a wound of their own to carry in this lifetime.
It is the goal in lives of Libras born on October 4th to find the right way to express their inner truth and share just the right amount of information with others, at the right time. The challenge of communication could be vast, as they tend to explore their options in ways that damage their self-esteem until they build fences and defense mechanisms to serve as a foundation for learning and growth. They have so much to share and shouldn’t be restricted by social norms and opinions of other people, but they are also to listen carefully for the intense feedback they are given and learn from it.
Love and Emotions
Emotional life of those born on October 4th doesn’t seem to be their primal concern, but every Sun in Libra gravitates towards relating and the situation won’t be different here either. However, their relationships and romances seem to serve a special purpose, helping them find their true position and hold on to their personal boundaries while someone touches their Soul. They won’t be interested in easy contacts and short-term affairs, and even if they end up in such choices, they won’t last very long for their true nature carries a strong desire for feelings in their life to last.
They need someone to rely on and someone they can trust. With a strong foundation they won’t have trouble giving in to structures of marriage and deep commitment, for as long as they feel valued and respected for their share of involvement in any part of their shared lives. However, what they need most of all in an intimate contact with another person, is freedom of expression and to speak their mind with ease. This heals them for the outer world as well and brings them closer to their true mission in life.
What They Excel In

They understand that things in life can be fixed, and this is one of their greatest qualities, making them fixers and healers of all sorts. For as long as they have a goal to strive for and enough initiative to move in a direction that fulfills their need, they will be builders and those who stay in place in the time of crisis.
