People born in October are either a Libra (October 1-22) or a Scorpio (October 23-31). For most of the month, the air sign Libra takes charge. The sign, as represented by the scales, is the only inanimate object of the zodiac. Perhaps because of this, Libras tend to fixate on balance and harmony. October-born Libras are social butterflies and are ruled by community-oriented Uranus. As seen with many stars on this list, this makes them passionate about social issues. Libra is also the sign of partnership, so exploring the dynamics of interpersonal relationships is an important part of life for those born under this sign. Libra is also a cardinal sign, so they are supposed to be great at launching new initiatives. Still, because they consider multiple perspectives in every pursuit, Libras often struggle with making a decision.
On October 23, Scorpio season begins. Scorpio is a water sign symbolized by the scorpion. They are one of the strongest water signs because of their passion and control. Scorpios derives their strength from the psychic, emotional realm, like fellow water signs Cancer (crab) and Pisces (fish). They never show their cards and their mysterious nature is what makes them so seductive and charming. However, Scorpios tend to guard themselves and their private lives fiercely. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet that governs both destruction and transformation. Scorpion energy is ambitious and sometimes power-hungry if they give in to their egos. Scorpios are born to rule, succeed, and excel in their pursuits. They are known to blend their work life and home life, always strategizing, learning, and networking.
