The basic outline of the characteristic features of individuals born on October 17 is dependent on the two celestial bodies, Venus and Saturn. The dominance of Venus over the zodiacal group of Libra and Saturn over the actual date together determine the individuality of those with this birthday. Talking about the positive attributes of October 17 individuals, these people are highly responsible and determined with a self-confident, resilient and daring temperament. They are admired and well-respected by all. However, what goes against the favor of those born on October seventeenth is their free-spirited and inflexible nature. Ordinarily fairly quiet, these people have a slight streak of rebellious attitude which makes them a tad impulsive as well.
