The following is an except from my latest book Numerology of Astrology: Degrees of the Sun. With some exceptions those born on the first of October have the sun 8 degrees in Libra. These descriptions are written for old souls who have been on the planet many times and are nearing the time to face their dark side, integrate Self, complete the karmic cycle and evolve further into a new dimension.
The verbatim description is not going to exactly fit every single person with this degree. It is important to look at the archetypal meaning and adjust to the circumstance of the person’s life. Probably the name from this group that most people recognize is Jimmy Carter.
8th Degree of Libra
If this is your sun sign you might have been the first one who said, “Speak softly and carry a big stick”. The mild mannered Libra personality can distract from your immense capacity to confront and deliberate the complex web of power and authority. Whether in your home, office or in front of millions you wield power and delicately maneuver amid the world of self interests, political skullduggery and the confused collective consciousness of the public. You are in most cases perceived favorably by the society around you and this adds to your capacity to persuade and direct.
There is a karmic hint of having misused power in earlier evolutions of your soul journey upon this planet. Perhaps you destroyed much and hurt many. Or possibly many suffered because of your edicts and dictums. Your desire is for mankind to live in peace and get along with each other without the violence and destruction that has been part of the earth history since earliest times. The irony is that sometimes you get others angry and violent in response to your peacefulness. You weave your way through a delicate plot of political intrigue and power plays. Those who know you may well remember you for your constant negotiating and mediating among those who held disharmony toward each other.
There is an intellectual and artistic side of you that delves into the finer aspirations of humanity and encourages self expression and celebration of life. You may study religion or philosophy of society and sociology. You are curious about how people get along and would like to see them do it in win win strategies rather than mean spirited competition, For the most part your disposition is cordial and caring and you have alight hearted sense of humor that easily discharges tension and potential aggressiveness.
