As a Capricorn born on December 23rd, your patience and determination define your personality. Although you may become frustrated with the absent-minded dreamers, you usually handle all social interactions with understanding and a mild temper. Your friends and family always marvel at your ability to keep a cool head, but they may be most impressed with your determination. Whenever you are met with a challenge you feel is worth while, there is no obstacle that keep you from conquering it.

Earth

Earth is the elemental pair of the Capricorn and of all 12 zodiac signs, you are the only one to have a fundamental connection to the element. Your unique connection with Earth makes you active and practical in your pursuits. It is the influence of Earth that keeps you grounded and focused on the here and now. If you continue to embrace the positive influences of Earth, your prudence will become a great asset. Be careful to avoid crossing the thin line between prudence and over-cautiousness, as this may lead to you missing valuable experiences.

Saturn is the planetary ruler of your sign and as you were born in the first Decan, or part, of the sign, Saturn gives you a double helping of its planetary influence. Being the planet of control, Saturn contributes to your discipline, order and patience. Your unique planetary influences makes you far more perseverant than the other Capricorn Decans. In love and friendships, your planetary influences causes you to value loyalty and devotion over all else. You take the same hardworking and determined attitude into your relationships, as it seems you would do anything to help the security of your loved ones. Take time to cultivate your intimate relationships, as you may tend to put your material pursuits ahead of affection.

Your discipline and orderly personality will afford you a variety of career options to choose from, although this may be easier said than done. Your determination and hardworking nature would be very useful in the world of business, especially in executive and management position. Likewise, your patience and organizational skills would be well-suited for education or teaching. Your drive for success may take you down the entrepreneurial route, much like Madame C.J. Walker, who was also born on December 23rd. If your creative pursuits define your passion, you may do well in music or entertainment, which was the case for Holly Madison, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is three stained-glass windows in a gothic church, one damages by war. This symbol stresses the preservation of beauty, even in the face of violence or brute force. If things seem particularly bleak, take time to acknowledge the beauty that still surrounds you.
