October 20 Birthday Astrology

By: Jill M. Phillips

Libras born on October 20 embody the yin-yang principle: Duality is their defining characteristic. At times, they may appear aloof. October 20 people have profound intellectual potential, yet they may lack the discipline to study any subject in depth. They extract the information they need, then move on to something else.


Friends and Lovers

October 20 men and women give a great deal of themselves to their friends and demand a lot in return. Loyalty is a premier virtue in their eyes. October 20 people are idealists in romantic love; they always expect more from love than they receive. They can be drawn into tempestuous love affairs that seem doomed to fail.

Children and Family

The past is not a place that October 20 people feel comfortable visiting. There may have been a great deal of tension and unrest in their home. It is important to get past their shame about those days. Having children can be a big step, but before they can be effective parents they need to reconcile their image of themselves.


It isn't easy for October 20 men and women to adhere to a strict health program. The key to keeping fit is to commit to an exercise program that includes power walking, aerobics, and weight-training. A mind-body discipline can be helpful in maintaining emotional and physical equilibrium.

Career and Finances

People born on this date have a hard time deciding on a career because they have many choices open to them. They enjoy being in the spotlight. They are not usually adept at handling money. Their bad habits can be changed if they put their mind to it. October 20 individuals will pay a high price for a life of luxury.


Dreams and Goals

These men and women are always striving to bring the two sides of their nature together. This may be done through their relationships, love affairs, career choices, or the way in which they present themselves. For them to understand themselves, they must accept their dark as well as their positive side.
