As the cardinal air sign and the seventh sign of the zodiac, Libra is symbolized by scales. These scales have a lot to do with the Libra personality, primarily the importance of fairness and justice in the average Libra's life. Ruled by Venus, Libra is also associated with grace, glamour, beauty, and romance.

Even though fairness and justice rule much of their lives, a Libra Sun is an interesting case of conflicted behavior. This is because the Sun is in its setting or descending state when it transits Libra considering the time of year when Libra was born. The days are getting shorter and the sun is not so strong, which often makes Libras feel that they are out of place.

This is a difficult concept to grasp, and further reading about the sun's rise, set and setting may be of interest to you! For the sake of this article, just know that the Sun is not at its strongest when it is in Libra. Those born between September 23rd and October 22nd may find that your sense of self drifts or is highly influenced by the people in your life rather than your own inner voice.


There is another important factor to consider when analyzing October 1 zodiac signs. 30 degrees of the astrology chart for each sign. These 30 degrees are further subdivided into 10 degree increments, some of which are ruled by signs of the same element as you. These 10 degrees are known as decadals and can give you a deeper understanding of your personality.

So, for example, Libra's decans look like this:

  • Libra decan , from September 23rd to approximately October 2nd. Ruled by Venus and the most active Libra personality.
  • Aquarius decan , from October 2 to about October 12. Ruled by Uranus and Saturn.
  • Gemini decan , from October 13 to about October 22. Ruled by Mercury.

This means that those born on October 1 have all their planetary influence in Venus, the planet that rules Libra. No other air sign or planet affects them in a secondary nature, which makes their Libra personality shine even more! But how exactly does Venus affect Libra?

However, it is important to discuss Libra further and the fact that finding the Sun in this sign is technically in Descendant. This "fall" means that many Librans lose their sense of self, not least because they are always trying to stay calm. Given Libra's desire to please everyone all the time, it can be difficult for them to express themselves. This is especially true for Libras born on October 1—you're the most Libra of all Libras, after all!

There is some good news when it comes to your sense of self as an October 1 Libra. Although the Sun is in Libra, the October 1 zodiac has deep roots in numerology, especially the number one. This is obviously a strong number as it is the beginning of our number alphabet and October is the 10th month of the year, another 1!

A person rooted in the number 1 is someone who is very independent, dependable and able to achieve great things on their own. This may help counteract Libra's natural desire to please others at the expense of their own comfort or desires. In a way, the number 1 encourages you to seek out the first!

However, selfishness is also strongly associated with the number 1, which can make life difficult for many others born on the 1st of the month. Thankfully, selfishness is rarely an issue for Libras. This is a sign that values fairness above all else, especially if that fairness also appeals to their strong aesthetic and sense of justice.

Having a birthday on October 1 can mean that you are a Libra, able to express your strong opinions without fear of repercussions, which paralyzes many Libras. Despite the ingrainedness of the number 1, your sense of harmony remains, making you the perfect representation of the Libras they love so much!

Libras are known for their sense of harmonious beauty and fairness, especially those born in the Libra decan. As a cardinal air sign, Libra is amazing at generating ideas, especially ideas of wisdom or beauty. However, following through is where most Libras struggle. Their flighty nature and desire to keep all things fair often lead them to move on to the next assignment or opportunity with little warning.

Keeping the peace is the most important thing to a Libra. This is another way a Libra can disenfranchise themselves without realizing it. Making sure everyone is happy often means Libras end up compromising more than they should. Thankfully, Libras born on October 1 may not have this problem like the average Libra, as they have the ability to stay true to number one!

That's not to say there are no consequences for trying to keep the peace. Many Librans can feel powerless with decision-making, as it can be difficult to find a compromise that works for all parties. Without fairness and compromise, Libras can feel like going with the flow, especially when it comes to the relationships that mean the most to them.

There's nothing wrong with taking the time to weigh the pros and cons, and Libras will do so in every decision they make. However, the process can become arduous and lengthy, leaving Libra exhausted. This is especially true considering the fact that Libras want to make the best decision, not simply any decision. Libras born on October 1 usually have high expectations.

October 1 Zodiac Relationships

October 1 zodiac signs will notice everything about their partner, because this will be the best way for them to keep the peace as the relationship develops.


Libras take love and a relationship very seriously, given their ruler Venus. This is especially true for those born on October 1, since your minor ruler is also Venus. A Libra in love is a beautiful thing because they are committed to maintaining an open and harmonious relationship. Fairness is everything to Libra, although Libra's initiative on October 1 might make you question their expectations.

October 1 zodiac signs will notice everything about their partner, because this will be the best way for them to keep the peace as the relationship develops. Being able to anticipate any potential unease in a relationship is key to a Libra feeling in control in a relationship.

However, we all know how unpredictable and out of control love can be at times, which is why Libras like to keep their options open. That's not to say they're noncommittal or frivolous in order to stir up drama (although it's often that way!). Libras want to be friends with everyone, which often makes their partners uneasy.

Conflict and Libra go hand in hand, especially in relationships. Libras tend to have unspoken high expectations because of their natural desire to keep the peace. However, in the right relationship, the October 1st zodiac sign will support you, providing you with plenty of encouraging words and sensual activity.

If you reciprocate their love equally, and make sure not to take advantage of the tender soul that the average Libra has to offer, then you are a life partner who believes in the strength of a united front. However, it's also important to understand that Libras like to be many things to many people; they don't want to be limited in any way, but they don't want to mess things up either.

That's why it's important to give Libras their freedom and trust them to be fair to you. Because they will; Libras born on October 1 will have an excellent sense of self and their needs, while also being able to recognize yours. Libras have a lot of self-imposed rules and boundaries to keep the peace, which is why they may not have the space to accept the rules and boundaries set by their partner!

October 1st Zodiac Matches

To be a good partner for a Libra requires balance. Harmony and peace are both things Libras value, but many Libras will sacrifice their own needs in exchange for a happy relationship. That's why being an independent partner who helps a Libra shine is often best for an October 1 zodiac sign. Here are some good matchups for Libras born on October 1:

  • Aries . As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries brings to life a zest and energy that any Libra will appreciate. While this fire may eventually burn Libra, Aries also has a keen sense of justice and is always willing to fight for what is right. They will empower Libras in many ways, but a Libra born on October 1 may find the average Aries childish and fickle rather than enthusiastic.
  • Sagittarius . Another fire sign like Aries, Sagittarius is mutable and constantly changing. Their life experiences and passions will appeal to the average Libra, especially if the two are an aesthetic match. While commitment isn't necessarily a Sagittarius' strong suit, Libras will appreciate their flexibility and ambition. However, for many Libras who want to anticipate their partner's every need, they may end up being too unpredictable.
  • Gemini . As changeable as Sagittarius, Gemini and Libra get along very well because of their shared air element. Equally sociable, a Gemini-Libra partnership will be rooted in outside friendships and passions. This will keep the two busy and content in many other areas outside of the relationship, which may help Libra feel more content. Plus, Gemini is very good at going with the flow and pulling Libra out of their own heads.
  • Virgo . Another mutable sign, Virgo and Libra lie next to each other in the horoscope. While the relationship may be rocky at first, the Virgo-Libra pairing combines intelligence, high expectations, and flexibility in a way that many other Libra pairings don't. However, many Virgos need clear and realistic boundaries to feel safe in a relationship, so Libras need to respect those boundaries early on.
