People born on October 6 live each day as if it were the last. As a result they are one of the most alive and spontaneous individuals of the year. Every day for them is an adventure and an opportunity to fall in love with anyone or anything.

Romantic adventurers at heart, these people are driven by an irresistible urge to savor as many stimulations and sensations as life has to offer. They adore novelty and will waste no time in gathering as much information as possible before moving on to the next big adventure. Although their need to be stimulated is strong, they are not selfish people because their need to identify with and help others by means of their discoveries is equally strong.

After the age of seventeen they will reach a turning point in their lives, finding a growing need for emotional intensity, personal power and transformation. During this time there will be many opportunities for them to deepen their emotional commitment to others and they need to take advantage of these. This is because although they are often highly valued by their friends as a delight to have around, others may grow tired of their endless optimism and seeming inability to take into account the darker, more complex and deeper aspects of life. It is almost as if a part of them is like the romantic star of a story, with their character lacking depth and definition. However, once they start to understand that life cannot always be sunshine and roses and that suffering—however distressing—is essential to psychological growth, their life will become infinitely more exciting and rewarding.

After the age of forty-seven people born on this day are likely to become more freedom loving and willing to take risks emotionally and professionally; there may be opportunities for them to expand their minds and lives by traveling or studying. Whatever age they are, however, their versatile, energetic and inspirational contribution to the world draws luck and success to them, exerting a magnetic attraction on those around them.

On the dark side

Unreliable, superficial, sensationalist

At your best

Adventurous, energetic, spontaneous

Love Unpredictable

People born on October 6 can be wonderfully unpredictable when it comes to friends and relationships. For example, they may not turn up when they said they would but will then show up unexpectedly, much to the delight and surprise of others. Having said that, when they are in a close relationship they can be loving and loyal partners, as long as their partner understands that nothing will be predictable in their daily routine.

Health Latent creativity

People born on this day place a high priority on having fun, and although their refreshingly upbeat approach is commendable, they need to make sure their sensation-seeking nature does not become over-indulgent. As far as diet is concerned, they are often wonderful cooks and their love of variety will ensure that they get plenty of nutrients in their diet, but they need to steer clear of heavy and exotic foods, especially those rich in saturated fat. Surprisingly, for people who are so in love with life, there is a tendency to be prone to eating disorders or body-image problems. Counseling or therapy may help them deal with this, as will writing down and interpreting their dreams. Regular moderate exercise is recommended, as are mind-body therapies such as yoga or meditation. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color violet will encourage them to explore all aspects of their latent creativity.

Career Born educators

These people have pioneering potential and may be drawn toward the engineering, building or scientific realms, but the worlds of art, fashion, beauty, catering, cooking, and design also offer them wonderful opportunities to express themselves. Other career options include theater, writing, music, dance, promotion, production, education, and politics.

Destiny To make an inspirational contribution to the world

The life path of people born on this day is to understand that suffering is essential for psychological growth. Once they have been able to acknowledge the darker side of life, their destiny is to make an inspirational contribution to the world.
