February 18 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Dynamic, persuasive, and a strong individualist, you are an interesting mixture of material drive and humanitarian ideals. Sociable and charming, yet reserved, you enjoy power and initiating new projects. One of your main challenges may be to keep a balance between your work and your intimate relationships.
With the added influence of your Sun in the Libra decanate, you have a feel for beauty and the arts and an appreciation of aesthetics. Being naturally dramatic, you have unique ideas that may find expression through music, writing, or drama. Although independent, you place a high worth on your relationships, and you recognize the advantages of working in partnerships or in a team. Interested in people, you like to take a leading role but may have to avoid being too critical or controlling.
You can be vulnerable yet tough, and others may find your blend of love and discipline hard to understand. Financial matters are likely to occupy much of your attention, but with your shrewd business sense and determination, you have the potential to market your talents. Resolute and dedicated when you have a goal, you like to create something original. When you have faith, you usually find that everything just flows spontaneously into place. When you doubt, however, you may hold on to the past and lose your sense of timing. You often have the fortunate ability to see self-discipline as a positive investment rather than as a denial.
Up to the age of thirty-one, when your progressed Sun moves through Pisces, you develop a stronger sense of vision and your emotional sensitivity becomes emphasized. This may encourage you to seek idealistic, artistic, or spiritual goals. After the age of thirty-two, when your progressed Sun moves into Aries, you have a need to be more assertive, active, and directive in your daily affairs, possibly pioneering new ventures. At the age of sixty-two there is another turning point as your progressed Sun enters Taurus, accenting a need for more practical stability and security.

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
On an inner level, you are extremely sensitive, especially to the expression of love and feelings. You may have encountered difficulties growing up concerning the display of emotion. At times this may have caused you to become skeptical or withdrawn. When you trust others enough to open your heart wide, you can be extremely generous and compassionate. This universal feeling may even stimulate an interest in mystical or spiritual experience. By learning to let go and take life as it comes, you become more detached, seeing life with the aid of a dry sense of humor.
As you have deep feelings and a humanitarian spirit, this may encourage you to fight strongly for an ideal or a cause. Highly intuitive, you often work best when you trust your own instincts and go by first impressions.
Work & Vocation
Hardworking and dutiful, you are willing to make sacrifices, but you need to keep a healthy balance between duty and time for relaxation and recreational pursuits. Being independent, you want to have enough freedom to express your original thoughts. You blossom with encouragement and positive feedback from those you work with. Usually idealistic and charming, you enjoy working with the public and are highly supportive of social reforms. Intuitive and intelligent, with a talent for business, you are also suited for a career in administration, where you can use your critical and analytical skills to advise others. Friendly and diplomatic, you have a flair for combining business and pleasure. You may need to make sure, however, that you do not take others too seriously by taking offense.
Famous people who share your birthday include artist Yoko Ono, actors John Travolta and Matt Dillon, actress Cybill Shepherd, violinist Niccoló Paganini, guitarist Andres Segovia, mystic Ramakrishna, magazine publisher Helen Gurley Brown, and writer Toni Morrison.
