The birthday boy for October 5 is Bob Geldof.
I met Geldof when I was a kid. He was pleasant and gracious to me and my friends. It wasn’t until a few years later when I started reading stories about him being sort of a grouch to the media. I also met his fellow Libra, Sting, around the same time. Sting was a little aloof, but he put up with us because we obviously were awestruck by his presence. Like Geldof, the performer had the reputation of being kind of grouchy.
Yesterday I discovered that Thom Yorke is also a Libra and that he shares his birthday with Simon Cowell. All four of these celebrities demonstrate a common characteristic shared by the members of their sun sign: they all have the ability to remain gracious and even-tempered in the face of adversity, but they also tend to revert to passive/aggressive behavior when they’re annoyed.
Passive/aggressive behavior is a hallmark of this sign. You’re far less likely to have a Libra punch you in the face than to have one say something snotty behind your back.
