October 8ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ, 26rd


Persons born on October 8ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ, 26rd.

Number 8 people in this month.

If you were born on any of the above dates in October, following the rules of Zodiacal Astrology and my system based on Chaldean Numerology, you come under the vibrations of Saturn and Venus in the Zodiacal Sign of Libra, Second House of the Triplicity of Air. But if born on October 26ᵗʰ, you will be so far advanced in the “cusp” of Scorpio, the incoming Sign, that conditions will bemire fortunate for you than if born on the 8ᵗʰ or 17ᵗʰ.


The basic foundation of your character and disposition is described in preceding pages for persons born in this month.


Persons born on these dates will not, as a rule, have an easy time unless they have inherited money and have not to work hard to make their way.


They will mentally be highly intellectual, more inclined to devote themselves to some serious study than coming out into social life. Men born on these dates in October make excellent doctors, scientists and lawyers. The women are deep readers, often writers on social reforms, become interested in far-reaching political questions that effect the masses, or they may throw themselves heart and soul into some cause which they believe is for the good of humanity at large.


In all cases both men and women, as a rule, choose some difficult career in which they encounter great opposition to their views.


From a worldly point of view they often become wealthy; if they do, they will employ their riches in some unusual way, such as founding institutions and hospitals for the furtherance of scientific research or in some cause of political reform.                                                                                                                   

Persons born on these dates in October usually pass through great sorrows or afflictions. The loss of some loved one, the illness and death of a parent or close relative or an estrangement in family circles.           

Saturn is so powerful in this part of the year that persons born on the 8ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ or 26ᵗʰ of October are often raised into high positions—to see in their advanced years everything swept from them and their name attacked by calumny and scandal.


If persons born on the above dates have to work as employees, they seldom get into positions that are congenial and so, as a rule, have very unhappy lives.                                              

They are much misunderstood by others and being of a reserved, quiet disposition they are not good at defending themselves. As employees they often experience broken contracts and harsh treatment from superiors.




In financial matters they are not as a rule lucky; unless they inherit property, if they do make money they have so many demands on it that it goes as fast as it is made. They are usually over-anxious about their future, if alone in life they are disposed to hoard up money in peculiar places and often have it lost or robbed.


They should avoid all forms of speculation or gambles of every kind. Even in the higher types, such as scientists, doctors or lawyers, they find great difficulty in getting paid for the work they do.  



Persons born on the 8ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ or 26ᵗʰ of October, bring on many illnesses by mental despondency and turning over and over in their minds some injustice they have passed through. In many cases they foster the idea that they are martyrs and brood over their wrongs—real or very often imaginary. Their greatest danger is that they give way to melancholia which only makes matters worse for them, both physically and mentally.


Their health, as a rule, is always peculiar; they do not easily assimilate their food, have slow digestion, constipation, sluggish liver and severe headaches.                                                           

If possible they should live an outdoor life, get plenty of exercise, live on a simple diet and eat as much fruit and vegetables as possible.


If you were born on any of the dates I have mentioned, you will find the numbers of “fours” and “eights” coming into your affairs in the most unexpected ways. You will sooner or later notice how dates that produce these numbers are full of importance both in your career and in your private life. You will find how, without any planning on your part, you will even be attracted to houses whose numbers add up to the final digit of 4 or 8, to days of the month that produce these numbers, such as the 4ᵗʰ, 8ᵗʰ, 13ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ, 22ⁿᵈ, 26ᵗʰ or 31ˢᵗ, and to persons whose birthdays fall on these numbers. I have explained this subject in great detail in my recently published “Book of Numbers,”+ and regret I have not space at my disposal to give more particulars here.                                      

In your case, if born on the 8ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ or 26ᵗʰ of October, I can only advise you to be prepared for important matters and events that will take place on these dates. The jewels that appear more suitable for persons born on these dates are, black pearls, black diamonds and all dark stones.                             

For your climacteric years you must look out for the following ages of your life: the 8ᵗʰ, 17ᵗʰ, 26ᵗʰ, 35ᵗʰ, 44ᵗʰ, 53ʳᵈ, 62ⁿᵈ, 71ˢᵗ and 80ᵗʰ.
