March 18th Zodiac
Date: March 18th
Color: Tyrian Purple
In One Word: Powerful
Weakness: Loss of Focus
Most Compatabile With: Capricorn
March 18th is one of those dates that don't pose for the end or the beginning, standing close enough to the middle only to prove a point. There is a strange power to it though, for it puts all masculine entities to focus while the Sun is still in a feminine sign of Pisces. This test of balance is meant to teach and give meaning to everything in lives of those born on this date, if they only stop to listen to their emotions instead of rushing into new adventures day after day.
Such powerful deities in only one planetary row speak of imminent success in lives of those born on March 18th, as soon as they evolve enough to create solid relationships along the way. They need their social circle to rely on, and to realize that they cannot, and shouldn't, do everything alone. Although they have the energy to start something new and incredible, it is imperative that they act in sync with their hearts and their emotional core, or they won't feel satisfied no matter the success they achieve.
As we start calculating, we come to find that the story behind the forceful energies in this primal planetary row is the story of parental roles and images they obtained in early childhood. It is not only the light within they need to find, but they also need to learn how to spread it on their surroundings and notice their own reactivity that comes as a consequence of their obvious activities.

The interesting thing about these two Sabian symbols is that they are both speaking of strong feminine energies, in connection to the Moon and Venus combined. Since the planetary row of March 18th is so specifically masculine, these symbols speak of an obvious tendency to balance those entities with their counterparts that are equally strong. Although we can't see it from the start, this date is all about balance, especially since it brings the Sun on the degree of Venus' exaltation.
The purpose in lives of people who are born on March 18th seems to be hidden behind their battle of opposing sides. In general, it is their imperative to see the bigger picture and find meaning in things that surround them, learning how to shift their perspective and create enough distance to see everything in this world as beautiful and useful. They might spend the bigger part of their lives in delusion and being dishonest with themselves, only because of beliefs that are incorporated deep in their subconscious world by patters they witnessed as children.
Love and Emotions
Emotions obviously play a very big part in the world of all Pisces, but those born on the 18th of March tend to hold on to them as if they were their breath of air to live on. They are in search for love and easily become its preachers and missionaries, taking things in their own hands and showing affection without shame or holding back. They are the conquerors among Pisces and people who know what they want and what they need to do to get it.
Still, their heart remains their mystery and they rarely fully understand its ways. Although they embrace their emotions as this distant point they need to grasp and reach, they aren't aware of them at all times and will often try to do something quicker and more reckless than they would if they were in sync with their heart. Their love life has to be filled with excitement and sexuality plays an important role in any bond they form. However, the only thing of true value to any relationship they form is in the sense of purpose it carries along.
What They Excel In
A person born on March 18th excels in all sorts of sports and martial arts if they find this to be their love story in this lifetime. They will show initiative and qualities of a leader, pushing forwards only to break new records and boundaries. This makes them excel in all activities that need extra energy, physical or mental. In time, they learn enough to become teachers with a cause and missionaries that are to incorporate their life's philosophy into lives of those around them.
