As a Capricorn born on January 8th, you are well known for your social, charming and hardworking personality. While there are many people that prefer solitude, you are most energized by social settings, where you can display your charm, warmth and whit. While you may not realize it, people are naturally drawn to your personality and actively seek your company. While your social nature has earned you many friends, your hardworking nature has gained you an equal amount of admiration. You display great determination and will always do whatever is necessary to get the job done.

Earth

Earth is your sign's paired element and in fact, of all 12 zodiac signs, you have the only cardinal relationship to the element. Your fundamental connection with Earth makes you more active in your pursuits than other Earth zodiac signs, but you are just as practical and realistic. Instead of keeping your head in the clouds, you are grounded and cautious in your goals. Embracing these prudent earthly qualities will contribute to your future successes. However, be aware that too much conservatism can cause you to miss out on valuable experiences.

Saturn is the ruling planet of the Capricorn, but as you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you receive a generous helping of Venus's planetary power as well. While Saturn's influence be credited with your discipline and organization, the power of Venus is linked to your appreciation of beauty and harmony. More so than the other Capricorn Decans, your unique combination of planetary influence makes you creative and social. These qualities allow you to solve nearly any problem, especially one that you feel is worth solving. You display the same determination in love, as you will give loyalty, attention and affection to your partner. Your planetary influences may have the negative effect of making you pessimistic at times. Use your friends and family to help counter negative moods and increase your positivity.

Creative and sociable, your natural abilities will give you a chance for success at any career path you choose to explore. When paired with your fortitude, your vision may lead you to a career in business, research, writing or science, which was the path of Stephen Hawking, who was also born on January 8th. Similarly, your social competency may lead you to explore a career in psychology, counseling or politics. If you have musical ability, your creativity would be well-served as a lyricist or musician, much like Elvis Presley, another of your celebrity birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a five year old child carrying a bag filled with groceries. You may be approaching a point in your life, where accelerated growth is necessary. Remember that you have the ability to assume social responsibilities, even if it may be above your own development.
