January 18th Horoscope

SUN – MARS – (Pluto) – SUN

Such a strong masculine force of Sun and Mars combined only to create the Sun in the end, speak of strong ego issues that must be metabolized. Personality is in a way broken and needs to change, growing through strong and empowering boundaries to the outer world. These individuals must show initiative and strength, and they will often see life as unjust and uncaring, and this world being a rough place in which they were brought to fight for their rights every day. This can create quite a difficult personality that isn’t easy to be with, live with, or work with if the Sun and this person's relationship with their father isn’t healthy.

The second level of numeral analysis will reveal that January 18th shows an absolute lack of flexibility when matters of the Sun are involved. They will have to evolve and transform or all circumstances will stand against them and lead them to dangerous and dismissive situations that could seem like torture. To heal and feel good, one has to be ready to jump in deep and dig up the reasons for insecurities they carry within, and shed their skin as many times as necessary to realize what they were made to do.

Love and Emotions

It is obvious that this date is all about the Self and very little about other people, except when conflict and personal boundaries are involved. Emotional interactions will come naturally, but might break just as easily, for this isn’t someone who instantly understands everyone's point of view or the respect they receive or give in a relationship. If they start imposing their will and putting their choices above choices of others, those born on January 18th might be a bit too tough to stay around for long.

To find love and let go to its magic, individuals born on this date must adapt to the idea of anger and embrace all the buildup negative energy from their family line. Their initiative and realism depend on it, as well as all matters of the heart that need to be guided by bravery. They need something to fight for and someone to protect, and sometimes choose partners with serious problems just to be the hero throughout the relationship. There is a lot of fire and warmth they carry within, and in such a cold sign they are difficult to express. Made to give and share their light, they will do so selflessly when emotions take over.

Only when they are free to express themselves and truly shine with their righteous, powerful personality, will they be able to share anything with the rest of the world and become influential and important as they were made to be.

What They Excel In

They excel in leadership, management, and all leading positions that imply organization and a stable character.

They need a lot of rest to be in their best energetic state, that will help them find respect for everyone around them no matter their productivity or weaknesses.
