If Today is Your Birthday: October 23

Personality Profile for People Born on October 23

The following descriptions reveal some of the characteristics of people who share a birthday—those who are born on October 23rd of any year—based on various methods used in Astrology and Numerology. Both Astrology and Numerology reveal much more depth when a birth year, and in the case of the former, a birth time and place are included.

The Astrology & Numerology of your Birthday

Your Sun is in Scorpio in the Scorpio decanate and the Scorpio quadrant.

The rulers of your Sun in Scorpio are Pluto and Mars.

NOTE: You were born on the cusp of the signs Libra and Scorpio. You may be a Libra, and only your time and place of birth can determine this.

You are a persuasive, interesting, and clever person. There is a mischievous playfulness about you, and you like to poke fun at more serious or pompous individuals. You have much magnetic appeal, with both sexes. You are one of the most observant people around, and your understanding of human nature belies your years in age. Your wit is sharp, yet you are sensitive to the feelings of people you hold dear.

Johnny Carson, born October 23, 1925 Entertainer. Host of The Tonight Show for 30 years.

Bob Montana, born October 23, 1920 Cartoonist. Author of the Archie comic strip.

Dwight Yoakam, born October 23, 1956 Country singer.

Progressed Sun: Turning Points in the Life

We carry our Sun sign with us throughout our entire lives. If I'm a Libra, I'll always be a Libra. However, in secondary progressions, the Sun "progresses" in a symbolic sense through our natal Sun sign, and then beyond it to subsequent signs. Secondary progressions are "a day for a year", and because the Sun moves just under one degree per day, our Sun symbolically progresses just short of one degree every year of our lives. Because there are 30 degrees for every sign, if I was born in the latter days of a Scorpio Sun, my Sun would progress to the sign of Sagittarius in my early childhood, and to the sign of Capricorn in my early to mid-30's. If I was born near the beginning of a Scorpio Sun, however, my progressed Sun would enter Sagittarius close to my 30th birthday, and to Capricorn in my late 50's. The changeover of signs marks a critical turning point in a person's life. At the very end of a sign (just before changing signs), individuals may make life-changing, impulsive decisions.

Your progressed Sun enters Sagittarius at age 30. The ages of 29 to 31 mark a critical turning point in the development of your personality. After some sort of crisis of consciousness, and perhaps elimination of circumstances that have been limiting your growth, you begin to feel lighter, more free, and decidedly more outgoing. Your desire to learn increases, and your sense of humor is enriched. You are more flexible during this period as well.

Your progressed Sun enters Capricorn at age 59. The ages of 58 to 60 mark a critical turning point in the development of your personality. You become more practical, mindful, and concerned about your personal security. You are a self-starter, and you become more shrewd and focused on your goals.

Degree Meanings of your Sun:

Sabian Symbol:

If Sun is 0-1 degrees Scorpio:

"A Crowded Sightseeing Bus On A City Street"

Harmonic Degree Meaning:

rights for all people. Capable of great self-control when the cause is worthwhile."

Numerology of October 23

You were born on the 23rd day, which reduces to a 5. You are expressive and quick-witted. You don't want to--and probably don't--miss anything. Factoring in the 10th month of October, you are a number 6. You possess extraordinary charm and you are fiercely protective of those you hold dear. Factoring in your birth year gives you your Birth Path Number—a highly personal number for you. Find out how to determine this number here.

Most Favorable Days of the Month are 5, 14, 23, especially when these days (of any month) fall on Wednesday or Friday; and/or when the Sun is in Gemini or Virgo. The best colors for you are light grey, silver, white, and anything that glistens or shimmers. Avoid dark colors. You might want to wear diamonds or any shiny jewels/stones next to your skin.

Birthday Forecast for You

2005 is, and has been, a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It's "nose to the grindstone" time. It's a time to deal with practical matters, and it's not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely.  Positive relationships are not always formed in a Four personal year. Advice - get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

2006 is a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It's a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It's a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed, or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice - explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.

You Are Drawn to People Born on...

Easy, subtle attraction and harmony: You don't feel an irresistible pull towards each other, but over time, appreciate the peace you have between you. These people are good for you, although they might not challenge you to grow.

February 14-24, June 16-26, August 19-26, December 19-26

On-again, off-again attraction. This is a complex connection, and you make an odd yet interested couple.

March 19-23, May 19-23, September 21-25, November 21-25

A mysterious attraction that can be very romantic...or completely platonic! This is a spiritual connection that has a magical quality to it.

February 1-5, July 6-10, August 29-September 2, December 11-15

Opposites attract. Push me, pull me. You could complement each other well if you allow yourselves to learn from each other, or you could actively war against each other.

April 15-25

Attraction of the soul; challenging, intense, rich, and binding.

September 10-14, December 1-5

Powerful, tumultuous attraction--you are aware of the distinct differences between you, but may be drawn to each other because of the simultaneous awareness of a need and a lack. Either the relationship is ongoing and obviously tumultuous and of a "love-hate" nature, or it flows well until it breaks unexpectedly.

January 16-26, March 4-8, June 4-8, July 17-27, September 5-9, October 18-28, December 6-10

Creative, communicative, inspiring, and spiritually rewarding connections.
