As a Capricorn born on January 12th, your quick mind, discipline and loyalty are amongst your most defining qualities. You have a very active mind, which you have used to become an effective communicator. You take to tasks with determination, focus and an attention to detail. While your friends and family admire these qualities, it is their loyalty that they appreciate the most. Once you have opened yourself to another person, you display loyalty and commitment.

Earth

Earth is your sign's paired element and of all the zodiac signs, you have the only cardinal relationship with the element. Your fundamental connection with Earth makes you a self-starter and active in your efforts. Like all Earth zodiac signs, you are grounded and realistic in your goals. You do not waste any time on interests that do not have a practical application. These positive earthly qualities are amongst your greatest strengths. Take care to avoid Earth's negative influences, which include an overly conservative and cautious demeanor.

The Capricorn is under the planetary rule of Saturn, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also subject to the mysterious planetary influence of Mercury. Being the planet of control, Saturn is responsible for your discipline, determination and organizational skills. In the same light, it is Mercury that is responsible for your mental agility and gifts for communication. Your unique combination of planetary influence makes you more intellectual than other Capricorn Decans. These qualities, when paired with your shrewdness, will greatly assist your future successes. In love, your determination is witnessed as extreme loyalty and faithfulness. Amongst your most profound weaknesses may be a difficulty to let go of the pass. Although it may be tempting, avoid holding grudges, as this has a tremendously negative effect on your mood.

Your natural discipline and social abilities will translate well into a variety of careers, although narrowing your interests may be difficult. You may find success in careers that demand an attention to detail, such as law, research, law enforcement, finance, public relations or advertising. Your gifts for communication may translate well into a career in writing, much like Jack London, who was also born on January 12th. Similarly, you may be a perfect fit for radio or media, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a soldier receiving two awards for bravery in combat. Although responsibility comes with many challenges, it also comes with its fair share of rewards. Embrace your responsibilities and accept society's compensation.
