From their perfectly balanced ways to their sweet nature and laugh-a-minute sense of humour, an October baby blooms in spring and continues to blossom all year round. If you’re due to have a spring lamb this month, or already have an October babe, you’re in for a treat.
Generally happy little creatures, October-born babies love it when everything is smooth sailing – no rough seas for these lovers of harmony. They love to be loved and give love, and it’s hard not to fall head over heels for your sweet little snuggler. And given they’re rather charismatic and charming, it’s hard not to fall under their spell.
They’re also very empathetic and love to keep the peace, so you may find that they’re always trying to break up any kind of bickering.
What science says about October babies
Babies born in spring score very high on the hyperthymia scale, which is a measure of ‘general optimism’. October-born bubs tend to see everything sunny side up – that every situation can be turned into a positive.
Get ready for a strong little bub. According to one study, October-born children are stronger than those born in all other months, except September and November. And while it’s a long way off, your bub has a big chance of making it to triple digits. According to a Journal of Aging Research study there’s a link between birth month and reaching the ripe old age of 100 – and being born between September and November gives you higher odds!
But when it comes to all-important sleep, the news isn’t so grand. Studies have shown that spring babies fall asleep later than autumn and winter bubs. Must be all that spring sunshine!
What astrology says about October babies
October babes are either Libras (September 23 – October 22) or Scorpios (October 24 – November 22), both of which are cool and calm creatures, but one tends to attract conflict, while the other does everything to avoid it. Libras are lovable and fair, while Scorpios are passionate and brave – watch for that sting in the tail!
Known as peacekeepers Libras want to find harmony and balance in every situation, and this often means they are the ones resolving conflict. They love their family and friends and may be quite clingy babies and toddlers, but eventually, they will grow wings and gain independence.
Scorpios are also quite calm creatures, but they do tend to get involved in conflict rather than avoid it. They are opinionated and wear their hearts on their sleeves – and watch out for their fierce passion.
