Being an Aries born on April 18th, you can be defined by a generous and optimistic nature. There is little you would not give to a loved one in need. In fact, you display a generous and giving attitude to everyone you interact with, even complete strangers. Your kindness may be a product of the positivity that defines all aspects of your life. Whether it be a situation, person or experience, you can always find a way to see the bright side. Those closest to you would be the first to admit their appreciation for your optimism. In a cynical world, your optimism is truly refreshing.

Fire

Your sign's paired element is fire and of all 12 zodiac signs, only the Aries has a cardinal connection to fire. In many ways, your personality takes on the self-starting and initiating qualities of a spontaneous flame. Fire's influence also links to your leadership abilities, as passion and determination burn deep within your being. When you are in the face of adversity, your passion burns with intense focus until your goals are achieved. The positive qualities of fire will become one of your greatest assets, if you avoid the impulsiveness that plagues all fire signs.

The Aries is subject to the planetary rule of Mars, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive a dose of Jupiter's mysterious power. While it is the influence of Mars that can be credited with your assertive and action-oriented qualities, it is the power of Jupiter that is witnessed in your generosity, optimism and idealism. Your combination of planetary powers makes you the most knowledge-driven and adventurous of all the Aries Decans. You are always seeking truth and will be on a life long journey to obtain understanding. Your philosophical and spiritual interests give you the limitless mind of a dreamer. While this quality can be considered a great strength, it may also be a weakness if you let your optimism outweigh your realistic inclinations. Take time to consider all sides of a situation to avoid falling into undesired situations. In love, find a partner that helps you develop a more grounded attitude, as this will play a key role in your future success.

There are many challenges in finding the perfect career, but you are fortunate enough to have a well of potential careers to explore. Intellectual pursuits could lead you to the field of Law, which was the path of Clarence Darrow, who was also born on April 18th. In the same sense, as a natural leader, you could do well in business, sales, advertising or commerce. On the other hand, you may enjoy bringing your charisma to the world of media and journalism, much like Conan O'Brien, who was also born on April 18th.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a large disappointed audience. This symbol is a reminder of the importance of responsibility. You must acknowledge that it is no longer to lack preparation in life. Instead, you must acquire the maturity to be critical of your own failures and shortcomings.
