BORN OCTOBER 6TH? YOUR SIGN IS LIBRA by Lucas Vanderlinden

Were you born on October 6th? If so, then according to Western astrology, your zodiac sign is Libra, the sign of the Scales. This means that when you were born, the Sun was in the stars that make up the constellation known as Libra. Let's delve into the basics of your horoscope and explore what it means to be a Libra.

Libra Overview

Libra, known as "measuring scale" in Sanskrit, is characterized by certain traits that define its essence. Here's a breakdown of the general makeup of the Libra sign:

  • Sign of the Scales: Libra natives possess a balanced and judicious nature, although they can sometimes be a bit selfish.
  • Ruled by Venus: Venus, the planet of sensuality, fine food, the arts, and affairs of the home, governs Libra. Individuals influenced by Venus are fond of luxury and living the good life.
  • An air sign: Those with a Libra moon are imaginative, logical, and curious.
  • A movable sign: Those born under the Libra sign are fluid, spontaneous, and open to change.
  • A masculine sign: This gives Libras an aggressive, bold, and thick-skinned demeanor.
  • Preferred gemstone: Libra's preferred gemstone is the diamond, but they can also benefit from white sapphire and white topaz.

Traits of the Sun in Libra

In Western astrology, a person's zodiac sign is determined by the position of the Sun. If you were born on October 6th, you're considered a Libra according to most people in the Western world. While the influence of the Sun in a birth chart varies based on factors like its house placement and relationships with other planets, here are some general traits commonly found in someone with the Sun in Libra:

  • Restlessness: As the Sun is weakest in Libra, you may feel uncomfortable in social settings and find yourself torn between multiple paths in life.
  • Frequent travel: On the bright side, this planetary placement offers you the opportunity for frequent travel, which you tend to enjoy. Settling in your place of birth may not be likely as you grow older.
  • Frustrations in life: The native born with the Sun in Libra often faces struggles in areas such as self-confidence, vigor, and enthusiasm. These obstacles can lead to detachment and spiritual exploration.
  • Excessive desire for sex: Be mindful not to overindulge in romantic pursuits. Short-term pleasures cannot compensate for inner feelings of deficiency. By practicing yoga and meditation, especially bhakti-yoga, you can master your mind and senses and attain enlightenment in this lifetime.
  • Social adaptability: You possess a flexible personality type and know how to get along with people. Your ability to adapt to any situation and fit in with diverse circles is commendable.

Libra Careers

Librans thrive in professions that allow for a certain degree of independence. When working for themselves, they display a great deal of enterprising spirit. The following careers are recommended for Libra natives:

  • Lawyers
  • Judges
  • Doctors
  • Academics
  • Artists
  • Poets
  • Sculptors
  • Designers
  • Architects

On the other hand, Librans may struggle in careers that require selfless service or offer little recognition. Thus, it's advisable to avoid professions that do not align with your refined nature, such as secretaries, janitors, plumbers, or mechanics.

Libra Mantras

Mantras are short phrases that uplift and cleanse our mind, heart, and consciousness. By practicing mantra meditation, we can experience total relief from suffering and negativity. Librans can benefit from meditating with specific mantras.

One such mantra for Libras is:
ॐ परषुरामाय नमः (Om parashuramaya namaha)

The Vedas contain many mantras effective for individuals based on their unique circumstances. However, some mantras are universal. The following maha-mantra, or "super mantra," is beneficial for people born in any zodiac sign:
हरे कृष्ण हरे कृष्ण कृष्ण कृष्ण हरे हरे हरे राम हरे राम राम राम हरे हरे (Hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare Hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare)
