People born on July 18 appear to have limitless energy and enthusiasm. Throwing their heart, body and soul into whatever they do, they are admired for their dedication, conviction and determination to make their voice heard. They are unlikely to follow the conventional path in their personal or professional lives, and always aim to find a better way, speaking out boldly to let others know about it.

Although they can give the appearance of being extreme, eccentric or wild, there is often a method to their madness. Independent and innovative in their thinking, they also prefer to identify themselves with a group or common cause. The reasons for this include strong feelings of empathy with others, as well as a somewhat insecure need to ground themselves in the bonds of camaraderie that come from serving a common cause and receiving recognition.

Until the age of thirty-four they will be given opportunities to develop their daring as their power, confidence and creativity increase. They will often, however, choose to invest their considerable energies, intellectual talents and emotions in shared aims; it is important during this time that they don’t allow their views or opinions to become extreme or inflexible. After the age of thirty-five they may become more discriminating, businesslike and efficient. The need to work with and serve others will be as strong as ever, but this time the emphasis will be on supplying creative and progressive solutions, making these people powerful figures in the community. Another turning point comes at the age of sixty-four when issues around beauty, harmony and emotional fulfillment are emphasized.

Although they are self-disciplined, intelligent and sociable, the true inspiration they seek will lie in the realms of emotional satisfaction. They will always be gifted problem solvers able to find a better way for others; but once they understand that the best way for themselves is the inner way and trusting their highly developed intuition, they will find that they attract countless opportunities for their own happiness and true fulfillment.

On the dark side

Insecure, extreme, wild

At your best

Bold, committed, driven

Love Make love your cause

People born on July 18 do have a tendency to identify themselves so strongly with the cause or project they are promoting that partners can feel left out or insignificant by comparison. Although they are attracted to people who will support their pursuit of truth, to keep their relationship alive they need to turn the spotlight on their partner from time to time and make them their cause.

Health Emotional confidence

People born on this day need to ensure that they find ways to express their negative emotions; repressing them will lead to unhappiness and confusion. They should understand that emotions, such as fear, anger, guilt, and sadness, should not be ignored but listened to because they have something important to say. Getting in touch with their emotions is therefore crucial, and if they can’t do this alone they may benefit from therapy or counseling. As far as diet is concerned, they should eat little and often to keep their energy levels high; the importance of moderate to mild exercise every day should not be overlooked as it will help them deal with pent-up emotions, boosting their self-esteem and body image at the same time. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color silver will encourage them to be more open and honest with themselves and others.

Career Born politicians

These people will often identify themselves with a group or cause and may therefore be attracted to careers in sports, politics, art, or religion. They may also excel in leadership positions in education, research, science, public relations, and philosophy. Whatever career they choose, they are never happy being told what to do, so it is imperative for them not to stay in a servile position for too long.

Destiny To be a just and progressive force

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to think independently and not always identify themselves with others. Once they are able to recognize the importance of individual and community needs, their destiny is to be a powerful force for justice and progress in their community and the world.
