Trust yourself

The next time you make a decision, analyze your feelings and intuition before you proceed. Ask yourself how you feel about something or someone, and why. Trust that you will find the right answer, and you will.

People born on December 18 are blessed with a soaring imagination and a sense of possibility that those who are less imaginative would dismiss or even ridicule. Their determination to translate their dreams into reality is, however, so powerful that they can withstand almost any criticism.

From an early age people born on this day are likely to have been quick learners, soaking up information and mastering skills long before others; when all this knowledge is added to their incredible creativity, anything is quite literally possible. They may develop a game plan for life in their teens or twenties that includes far-reaching plans and then, as the years pass, they will devote themselves fully to achieving their goals and realizing their dreams. These people think in the long term and not in the short term, and although progress may appear slow to others, they are slowly, carefully and steadily climbing their way to the very top.

Until the age of thirty-three they may find that life offers them opportunities to develop a more practical and realistic approach to achieving their goals. They should take advantage of these opportunities by accepting assistance when it is offered, involving others in their plans, and simplifying their workload and their long-term goals. They run a real danger otherwise of becoming exhausted, disappointed and alienated. After the age of thirty-four there is a turning point when they may wish to become more independent and to express their individuality.

These years are filled with potential for people born on this day, but whatever age they are the key to their success is their ability to set themselves realistic goals and their willingness to slow down the pace of their lives so they can get in touch with their intuition or the silence within. Connecting with their feelings will help them see that the sense of wonder, discovery and possibility they long to—and are destined to—create in the world around them already exists within them; all they need to do is find it.

On the dark side

Unrealistic, preoccupied, unfocused

At your best

Imaginative, energetic, determined

Love No time for us

The sense of possibility possessed by people born on December 18 inspires respect and admiration in others but it can also cause feelings of frustration because they can appear to be taking on too much. Although they are sensual, charismatic and like to take the lead in relationships, they will often bury themselves in work, only emerging when they want support or attention. Others may wish that they could simplify their lives so that they have more time not just for friends and loved ones, but for themselves.

Health Learn to pace yourself

People born on this day tend to fill their lives with constant activity. Although this means they are extremely productive, it can also mean that they rarely take time out to relax. It is therefore important for them to know what their limits are and not to bite off more than they can chew because otherwise they are prone to stress and even burnout. As far as diet is concerned, they also need to slow down and should resist the tendency to eat food as quickly as possible. They should also cut down on sugar, caffeine and other stimulants used to keep their energy levels high, and replace these with fruit, nuts and seeds. Mild exercise is highly recommended, as are meditation and breathing activities to help them find the space and stillness within. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color green will encourage natural healing and balance.

Career Born directors

People born on this day will thrive in careers that allow them to think and act independently in the pursuit of their visions; they may therefore be drawn to science, technology, art, or sport. Other possible work options include business, writing, sales, publishing, teaching, charity work, fundraising, politics, social reform, and the worlds of film-making, entertainment and the media.

Destiny To inspire others to follow their dreams

The life path of people born on this day is to get in touch with their own feelings and those of others. Once they have made contact with the power of their intuition and set themselves attainable goals, their destiny is, by example, to inspire others to follow their dreams.
