As a Capricorn born on January 16th, you are perhaps most well know for your discipline, loyalty and intelligence. You possess a notable attention to detail, which is complemented by an appreciation for order and structure. When paired with your strong mind, this ability allows you to overcome any problem that you may be confronted with. Your friends and family admire your discipline and problem solving abilities, but they may love you most for your loyalty. You dedicate yourself fully to those you care about and are always looking out for their best interests.

Earth

Earth is your sign's elemental pair and of all the zodiac signs, you have the only fundamental connection with the element. Earth's special influence makes you active in your pursuits, but it also causes you to share in the pragmatism of all Earth zodiac signs. While others have their heads in the clouds, focusing on fantasy, you are grounded and realistic in your goals. Your earthly prudence will play a key role in future successes, as long as you are careful to avoid the temptation of becoming overly cautious and conservative.

Saturn is the planetary ruler of the Capricorn, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you are subject to a generous helping of Mercury's planetary influence as well. Being the planet of control, Saturn's influence links to your discipline, authority and responsibility. Similarly, it is Mercury's influence that is reflected in your mental agility and gifts for communication. Your unique planetary influences make you more intellectually driven and more of a natural communicator than the other Capricorn Decans. In love, your commitment and faithfulness knows no bounds. If there was one flaw of your planetary power, it may be the inability to let go of the past. Avoid holding grudges, as this only decreases your overall happiness.

While choosing a career is never easy, your natural abilities will create several career opportunities for you to explore. Your gifts for communication may be well-suited as a writer, journalist or teacher. Similarly, your intellectual pursuits may take you towards higher learning, science or research. You may feel that you are destined to take the entrepreneurial route, which was the case for Andrew Michelin, who was also born on January 16th. In whichever career you choose, adopt the passion and dedication of late R&B singer Aaliyah, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is pilgrims climbing the steep steps leading to a mountain shrine. You may be approaching a new level of of consciousness. As you reach the height of understanding, acknowledge the link between your subjective and objective point of views.
