From MoonGiant.com

Moon Phase for today: Jan 16, 2023

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waning Crescent phase. This phase is best viewed just before the sunrise in the western sky. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this part of the Moon cycle, the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Visit the January 2023 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

On January 18 the Moon is 25.67 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

January 18 birthday horoscope predicts that you are a conformist because you are practical, but you do have a wild side. You seem to have restless periods where it is too quiet. Some people in this world are responsible for their conflicts. Could one of them be you? You can make your life happening and interesting.

January 18th birthday personality are usually very delightful but straightforward individuals. You have the aptitude to be shady. Take a serious look inward; perhaps start a journal so you can see where you are when things go sour.

Be honest when it comes to your emotional exchange with others. You are a confident individual, and you are sharp, but you are still not perfect. Do not worry about it, no one is.

The January 18 horoscope shows that you find it enjoyable discovering new dimensions. You need stimulation and range in your life. You believe in education and the power of knowledge. You have intriguing energy that will not let you stand still.

Above that, your sixth sense kicks in to give you clues as to what direction you should be taking. Not everyone is in touch with his or her spiritual side as you are. When Capricorns put the combination together, they cannot lose.

As a Capricorn with birthday January 18, you have a sharp mind, and your attention to detail is impeccable. You can solve most any problem. Capricorns are among the most career-oriented individuals I know of. Those that are envious often speculate that you are narcissistic or more to the point, eccentric.

They say it does not get any better with the more money you make. You are not Michael Jackson, but that monkey on your back is a sign that you are a little extreme. Okay, so I am joking, but you get my drift. Your lifestyle is over-the-top and indeed, a bit different from most. The future of person who born on 18 January depends on your current lifestyle.

On the other hand, what your birthday says about you is that some Capricorns like to trim things down to the nitty-gritty. Some Capricorn sun sign people can be extremely creative when it comes to editing a previous convention or tradition to better their professional and personal state of affairs.

January born Capricorns have a way of getting rid of unnecessary layers that could slow them down. As a result of this, people can be critical of you. But, to see the forest, you may have to cut down some trees. This is the case with this Capricorn born on January 18.

Well, your friends and family have some good things to say about you. They are pleased to say that you are sophisticated, intelligent, law-abiding, and loyal. They have nothing but your best interest at heart when they say you need to stop giving the wrong people the opportunity to hurt you warn the January 18 astrology predictions.

Most of the people you choose in love are not the kind looking to settle down. While a good time is important, so is stability. Take your time with this. There is no shame in a good old fashion courtship. I know you do not like to be criticized or judged, so I am the one to tell you this because your friends cannot. Listen to your birthday love compatibility and take the right steps.

They do not want to jeopardize your friendships. Oh and one more thing, fraternizing with people in your professional circle, is a no-no. It is not good for business. Consider that next time Capricorn before making moves on the new hire.

January 18 personality plan things. Perhaps, there is a job there. Planners make a decent living. Have you ever thought of entertainment as a profession? You are funny! Capricorn, you could be anything your heart desires. It seems like you are always in the right position to catch all the latest news on who’s who and the most popular spots for connections

To sum it up Capricorn, if today is your birthday, you are suave but underneath all this coolness can be a mess. You, with your mood swings and emotional breakdowns, can be a bit disturbing depending on the position of the Moon. People born on January 18 are quite hard on themselves, and you could benefit from lowering your prudent standards, just a tab bit.

Those kids on the bus were having fun when they mooned you so relax and take it in the manner in which it was done. It was all in fun! Goats are active creatures. January 18 Capricorn birthday people have a real down to earth approach to life

You can see a brighter day when the rest of the world cannot. You have a psychic ability that most other goats do not. Your faith is stronger which in turn, makes you a stronger and more positive individual.

Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Sagittarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Parents and authority figures will be pretty intense today. Therefore, this is not the day to decide to challenge them. (Ya think?) If you do, you will encounter more than you bargained for. Step aside. “A lot of men didn’t and a lot of men died.”

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a poor day for arguments and disputes about politics, religion and racial issues; nevertheless, you will probably be drawn into them! Try to avoid this if you can because people will be intense and convinced that they’re right and that you will be better off if you agree with them. Oy!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Don’t get embroiled in discussions about shared property, inheritances or insurance disputes because you might have to contend with someone who is trying to exert unreasonable power over you. People are intense today and they want to convince others to agree with them.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Keep things light today. (If you can.) Avoid intense discussions with partners and close friends because people can be quite pushy today. In fact, avoid dangerous areas and any possibility of a criminal element. There are some “heavy” vibes out there today.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might be determined to introduce reforms and improvements to your job today. However, don’t be pushy with others. (There are none so deaf as those who are wearing headphones.) Likewise, you might be super determined to improve your health today. Lighten up a bit.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a terrible day for romantic arguments because they will get out of hand, possibly dangerously so. This is because people are intense and passionate today. They’re convinced they are right and others should agree with them. Come hell or high water!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Avoid intense family discussions and arguments today because they won’t be pretty. Someone will try to push their views on others, and they might be overwhelming and aggressive. On the upside, you personally, might see ways to make improvements at home.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Discussions with others will be intense, even overwhelming today. You might have to contend with someone who is trying to exert power over you, which will force you to defend your own right to do things the way you want to do them. Oh yes, this is a day where people can be really pushy!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Avoid disputes about money and possessions today because they could be nasty. On the other hand, you might see useful ways to use money or something you own to make improvements somewhere or to help a third party. Hopefully, you can do this.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be careful who you hang out with today. Avoid people who are aggressive, angry or potentially criminal. This is the kind of day that brings the worst out in people. In fact, everyone will be intense and a bit aggressive today so be discriminating. Be smart.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Avoid dangerous areas today or places where there are few people because this is the kind of day where the criminal element might be felt, even in a threatening way. Take the high road in every sense of the word. (Plus, the view is better.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Very likely, you will encounter a friend who seems to be coming on a bit strong today. Or perhaps, you will talk to someone in a group situation or a meeting. If so, this is a poor day to contradict or cross swords with someone because you might be surprised at their reaction. People are intense and purposeful today!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress and voice actor Jane Horrocks (1964) shares your birthday today. You have dignity in a practical, conservative way. However, in the next moment, you are wildly impulsive! You are generous, kindhearted and helpful. This year is the time for you to receive promotions, awards and acknowledgement for what you do You might assume a role of leadership.

A Thought for Today

Dear sisters, brothers, and honored guests may of the Great Mother and Father, the Lord and Lady, Goddesses and Gods, bless you and your family with all things positive!
