As a Capricorn born on December 31st, your personality is defined by its hardworking, charming and creative qualities. Like all Capricorns, you show great determination in efforts that you feel to be worthwhile. This quality is paired well with the creativity and enthusiasm that you display in all aspects of your life. You are quite social and others value your witty and warm personality. Throughout your life you have noticed that people actively seek out your company. You would be surprised to know how many of your friends genuinely appreciate your loyalty and attention.

Earth

Earth is your sign's paired element and of all the zodiac signs, you have the only fundamental connection to the element. Your relationship with Earth makes you a self-starter and active in your pursuits, but more so, it insures a grounded and practical demeanor. While others keep their heads in the clouds, yours are firmly rooted in the realistic. As long as you embrace your prudent earthly qualities, you will be headed towards success. However, you may miss exciting and worthwhile experiences if you adopt an overly cautious attitude.

Saturn is the planetary ruler of your sign, but as you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you are subject to the planetary influence of Venus as well. While Saturn is the planet of control, discipline and determination, it is Venus that links to your more harmonizing and social qualities. More so than any of the other Capricorn Decans, you are social, adaptable and creative. When paired with your ambition, your creativity will take you far in life, as you have the determination and mind power to solve any problem. Your determination is just as strong in your friendships and loving relationships. You put in the time and effort to maintain affection relationships, but may find trouble keeping a positive outlook. Stay firm in the pursuit of your goals to avoid your pessimistic tendencies.

Creative and hardworking, your natural abilities can translate into success in a variety of career paths. Your social skills and creativity may do well in demanding fields, such as writing, advertising and public relations. Similarly, you may find that your pragmatic and compassionate personality may do well in the political arena. The creative world of entertainment or music may be too appealing to ignore, such was the path of Donna Summer, who was also born on December 31st. In whichever career path you choose, look to the success and longevity of Anthony Hopkins another of your celebrity birthday twins, for motivation.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is an albatross feeding from the hand of a sailor. This symbol mainly relates to the importance of trust. Although there may be challenges in opening up to another, there are many rewards that can come from overcoming your fears.
