January 18 Zodiac Birthday Signs – With your smart and shrewd approach to life and a charming personality, you have a head start over others in your ability to succeed in life. Ambitious and broad-minded, with strong leadership potential, you prefer to give the orders, but may have to resist going too far and becoming bossy. Fortunately, a humanitarian side to your personality suggests that you are a good judge of character and enjoy helping others.

With the subinfluence of your decanate ruler, Virgo, you have a keen intellect and good communication skills. Your excellent sense of structure indicates that you possess natural business sense and a willingness to work hard for success. Practical and perceptive, you can make astute observations, but you may have to avoid a tendency to be critical. Common sense and good concentration imply that you are capable of deep thought and productive results.

Sociable and friendly, when relaxed you can also display an original sense of humor or satire. A tendency to disappointment or frustration, however, may sometimes drain you of your positivity. It is important to stay detached and see the larger picture. By being broad-minded, you can afford to be generous with others and show them a side to your nature that is warm, giving, and magnanimous. Inventive and with original ideas, you have the potential to inspire others with your enthusiasm and grand plans.

While you are between the ages of three and thirty-two your progressed Sun is in Aquarius, highlighting your individuality, friendship, desire for freedom, and group awareness. At age thirty-three, as your progressed Sun moves into Pisces, there is a turning point that emphasizes the importance of your sensitivity, imagination, and need to feel more in touch with your emotions. Another change at age sixty-three, when your progressed Sun moves into Aries, accents a desire for self-assertion, more action, and new beginnings.

FIXED STARS

 

Although your Sun’s degree is not linked to a fixed star; some of your other planets’ degrees certainly will be. By having an astrological chart calculated, you can find the exact position of the planets on your date of birth. This will tell you which of the fixed stars listed in this book are relevant to you.

Your Secret Self

 

Business acumen and an instinct for money matters help you to become a good evaluator. This can extend to being a good judge of people and situations that combines well with your liberal outlook. Possessing natural authority, you may feel a responsibility to pass this knowledge on to others and can therefore be an excellent fighter for just causes or ideals. Be careful, however, that a touch of materialism does not distract you from your high aims.

Seeking adventure and change, you need variety in your life to prevent you from becoming bored. If too confined by structure or responsibilities, you may become restless and impatient. By striking a balance, you can avoid going to extremes and indulging yourself in material extravagances to make up for emotional dissatisfaction. By finding ways of expressing your dynamic sensitivity, you can use your subtle ability to enchant others. That ability, together with your fast responses enables you to keep others entertained and uplifted.

Work & Vocation

 

Capable and creative, you are often interested in combining your talents with your practical abilities. An excellent image maker, you may become involved in the world of advertising, fashion, or media. Idealistic and progressive, you may be interested in teaching, training, or charity work. If in business, intuition and a strong sixth sense may help you to succeed in the world of banking, investment, and the stock exchange. Alternatively, you can use your compassionate nature by joining the healing professions or work in science and technology as a researcher. The dramatic side of your personality may inspire you to write or join the world of film and theater as an actor, promoter, or producer.

Famous people who share your birthday include actors Kevin Costner, Cary Grant, and Danny Kaye, conservationist David Bellamy, writer A. A. Milne, and film director John Boorman.

Numerology

 

Determination, assertiveness, and ambition are some of the attributes associated with the number 18 birthday. Dynamic and active, you frequently desire power and need constant challenge. At times you may be critical or hard to please or inclined toward controversial issues. As a number 18 personality, you may use your power to help others, give sound advice, or solve other people’s problems. Alternatively, your strong business sense and organizational skills can lead you to the world of commerce. The subinfluence of the number 1 month indicates that you are original and multitalented. Imaginative and full of ideas, you need to find ways to express yourself creatively and autonomously. As a good strategist, you can turn your wonderful ideas into tangible products. The great desire to be first and innovative encourages you to make your own decisions or strike out alone. You are confident and have plenty of energy, and your charm and enthusiasm can inspire others to support your latest plans. Although lucky, you may need to learn that sometimes the world does not revolve around you.

Positive: progressive, assertive, intuitive, courageous, resolute, efficient, advisory skills

Negative: uncontrolled emotions, lazy, lack of order, selfishness, failure to complete work or projects, misunderstood

Love & Relationships

 

It is important in your relationships to keep a sense of balance. At times you may appear cool or detached and at other times you can be warm and caring. A vital part of your agenda is to have friends and partners who can keep challenging you mentally; otherwise you may become somewhat compulsive or argumentative. Working too hard and not giving your partners enough of your time can also present possible problems. It is better, therefore, to have companions who are also fairly independent in their own right. Nevertheless, you are loyal, loving, and a supportive friend and partner.
