When we speak of October 16th, we need to keep in mind that this is a deep time of relating when nothing less than perfect will do. Each person born on this date might be a bit overburdened by emotions they feel for their partner, and their love life poses as a fine dance between their own light and shadows. They will see this if they pay close attention and work on their ability to reach for love and heartfelt communication, becoming brave enough to stay flexible and go with the flow as time goes by.

October 16th Horoscope


It is obvious that Venus has some trouble in this planetary row, for although it shines a light of love on these two suns and Pluto, it is quenched, and a bit burned by their influences. Too many people could easily penetrate the sensitive inner world of those born on the 16th of October, and they need a lot of work on their emotions, so they can build their relationships clear of influences of the past. They are just as joyful as they may be dark, and their shadows aren’t meant to overflood the energy of life they carry within. The most important thing here is to hold on to creative work, self-expression and relationships that are filled with love and support, so that inspiration remains, and one is motivated to deal with quite extreme differences in personalities of those around them.

Love and Emotions

Partnership and romance play the largest part of lives of Libras born on the 16th of October. They are to constantly be in love, so they can find the motivation for all other things in life, and even when their relationships aren’t as easygoing as they’d like them to be, they will still push them forwards in other areas of life. Creativity grows as they approach emotions, so rationalization doesn’t really do them good, for common sense isn’t necessarily linked to overthinking and they are to focus their thoughts instead of scattering them all around important emotional issues.

They need a strong partner to lead the way, nurture their loving energy, and absorb their ways and tactful approaches so they can have their real purpose. They don’t need someone who’ll constantly tell them what they must do differently, especially when relating to people on the side, but they must to leave room for constructive criticism from those whose judgment they usually trust. Excellent and kind lovers, they are to make some mature relationships filled with love and fun activities, for as long as their life force doesn’t fade due to lack of confidence or disappointments from the past.


The story of love that people born on October 16th are to share, is to find a safe-haven and materialize, showing its face in the real world and actual relationships in their life.

Their connection of mind with the body needs to be strong enough, so they can balance out their physical world with the dream world they wish to sink into. Building the strength of their physiology, exercising, walking and committing to a healthy routine, they cleanse their mind and start building constructive focus on the real world they wish to create.
