Thanks a million to Willarayne for sending me an analysis of Jason’s personal profile based on his birthday, September 12th.  I find horoscopes fascinating and thought-provoking.  She wanted to share it with you.  This analysis comes from a book called “The Secret Language of Birthdays–Personal Profiles for Each Day of the Year”.

September Twelfth


September 12 people are concerned with the literal meaning of both the written and spoken word.  Not only are they interested in words, but also in languages and communications of various types.  It could be said that they greatly enjoy having an attentive audience.  This is not to imply that they are particularly effusive types – they understand the importance of restraint.  Indeed, most born on this day are actually quiet and private people.  Overtly active and hardworking, they prefer on occasion to let their actions speak for them instead of the words they value so highly.

Ethical issues are of great importance to September 12 people and to those who have public or administrative careers are not only capable of cleaning up the act of an organization or social group but also of managing to keep it running smooth and efficient, albeit unconventional way.  If necessary they will fearlessly face up to challenges and difficulties of all types, convinced that the truth will win out in the end.  For them truth is a god.  However, they are not in any way dreamy-eyed idealists but rather tough, critical thinkers.  It is very difficult to put something over on them. Also they are extremely honest and highly resistant to bribes and influence.  They prefer to remain objective in most disputes but when their passions are stirred, they will throw in their lot with the side they believe is just.

September 12 people are not always easy to get in touch with.  Both in the workplace and at home they tend to hide out, surrounding themselves with all sorts of defense mechanisms which make it hard to get through to them.  They may feel this is necessary, however, for they need to isolate to concentrate, and keeping their mental balance is of the utmost importance to them.  They can be prone to stress and even face breakdowns if their need for privacy is compromised.

Although expansive in their thoughts and projects, September 12 people are much too pragmatic and realistic to be blind optimists.  There is a strongly measured, even cynical, streak running through them that despises all forms of over enthusiasm, hysterical behavior and bombast.  They believe people should carry themselves naturally and simply tell it as it is.  On the other hand, those born on this day love to spice up their own language with sizeable doses of irony and dry humor.  They must be careful of making enemies of all sorts, particularly in the criminal underworld and higher political and social echelons.

The key to success for September 12 people lies in their ability to balance their mental and physical sides, harness their nervous energies, and manage to periodically withdraw from their active life for well-needed rest periods.   Structuring a meaningful private life, including close friends, family and permanent lovers, will be a difficult but challenging task for these kinetic people.  They must learn how to share meaningfully and compromise if the happiness the world offers is to be theirs.


Those born on the 12 of the month are ruled by the number 3 (2+1=3), and by the expansive planet Jupiter.  Those ruled by the number 3 frequently rise to the highest positions in their sphere.  They can also be dictatorial, and more the dominant of September 12 personalities must be aware of this.  Those ruled by the number 3 like to be independent, so September 12 people may feel the urge to relinquish positions of authority for greater freedom.  They can also grow tired of directing others.  The jupitarian nature of the number 3 lends September 12 people a higher positive, expansive and optimistic attitude in their outlooks and endeavors, and in combination with Mercury (Virgo’s ruler) grants integrity and honor.


The 12th card of the Major Arcana is The Hanged Man, who dangles by his foot in ahead down position.  Though such a position seems helpless, The Hanged Man is nevertheless spiritually powerful and deeply thoughtful. The positive attributes of this card are recognizing limitations and overcoming them, as well as simply being human; negative aspects are spiritual myopia and restrictedness.


Those born on September 12 are prone to stress-related problems with their cardiovascular system and digestive organs, thus smoking and hard drinking should be avoided or eliminated if possible. Hot and spicy food should be eaten in strict moderation, and at times a bland diet, perhaps macrobiotic or vegetarian, may be helpful.  Physical exercise is rarely a hot item for September 12 people, so daily walk s are recommended as a minimum requirement.  It must be noted that sedentary jobs can be debilitating and ultimately produce chronic physical ailments for them.  Intimacy and human warmth are vitally important in helping those born on this day relax and get the sleep they so desperately need.


Try to develop a decent personal life for yourself.  Moderate your workaholic tendencies if you want to live longer.  Don’t make promises you can’t keep or bite off more than you can chew.  Watch your health if only out of consideration to your loved ones.
