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.

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 a light hearted sense of humor that easily discharges tension and potential aggressiveness.

Notables With This Degree:

Mahatma Gandhi religious leader,social activist
Jimmy Carter American president and humanitarian
Sean O’Donnell parapsychologist and psychic
Isaac Bonewits singer, author,neopaganism and magic

Author's Bio: 

Lynn Buess MA, EdS brings a very unique perspective to astrology from his fifty plus years study and practice of numerology, healing and wellness innovator. During his earlier years he studied multiple theories of esoteric and metaphysical subjects including eastern religion and philosophies, reincarnation, astrology, and yogism to mention a few. His academic years in pursuit of three degrees in Psychology took him into humanistic psychology, transpersonal psychology and parapsychology studies as well. He is the only numerologist with two accredited post graduate degrees focused upon numerology and symbolism.
This academic experience, along with personal studies and mystical events and glimpse into cosmic consciousness, has given him an extraordinary perspective into the understanding of human psychology and experience. As a one time practicing psychotherapist and alternative wellness practitioner, he applied the art of multiple healing modalities in seeking to practice the most efficient techniques of healing and well being.
Lynn’s experience of practice in numerous nationalities adds to his scope of human nature and depth of insight into generations of family dysfunction and growth. Having come from a family of alcoholism and other toxic patterns he was eventually introduced to the issues of Adult Children of Alcoholism and the multiple dysfunctions of alcohol, drugs, sexual and codependent behavior. Much of his practice dealt with these common social behavior patterns.
Lynn served as a military intelligence special agent during his early adulthood. His experience conducting thousands of background investigations and performing the duties of security and counter espionage taught him to recognize many hidden irregularities and deceptive practices used by institutions and people in the position to misuse and abuse power. Having this professional investigative background enables him to identify issues that are frequently unrecognized or ignored by members of the general public.
This unique and varied cornucopia of internal mystical experiences and external life circumstances is reflected in the vastly expanded viewpoint he brings to the field of numerology and his wellness professionalism. Lynn is able to examine numerical cycles and deftly apply then in analyzing individual intervals of life circumstance, or national and international events taking place in the world around us.
