According to Celtic folklore, if your birthday falls between 30th September and 27th October you will be under the energy of the ivy.
Ivy is a survivor, hardy enough to cope with conditions that would overwhelm less well-adapted species. Anyone born under the ivy's influence is blessed with a strength of character and flexibility of mind that helps them survive when things get tough.
This isn't because you're aggressive or selfish in pursuing your needs, it's more to do with you making decisions under pressure that help you overcome problems.
You have the intelligence to see that bad times come to an end. Wise and strong, you inspire everyone round you.
