January 18 Horoscope

As a Capricorn born on January 18th, your personality is defined by your loyalty, intelligence and discipline. Your friends and family would be the first to praise your loyal nature, as you always seem to have their best interest at heart. While your loved ones appreciate your devotion to their needs, they may admire your personal discipline and intelligence the most. You have a quick mind and an attention to detail that is difficult to match. These abilities allow you to solve any problem that comes your way!

Your sign's paired element is Earth and of all the zodiac signs, you have the only cardinal connection with Earth. All Earth zodiac signs share a sense of practicality and prudence. Instead of having your head in the clouds, your interests are grounded in what is real and pragmatic. Unlike other Earth signs, your fundamental connection with Earth makes you highly active and an initiator. Embracing Earth's positive qualities will become one of your greatest assets, but be careful to avoid Earth's negative qualities, which include becoming overly conservative.

The Capricorn is under the planetary rule of Saturn, but as you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, Mercury lends you a helping of its special planetary power as well. Being the planet of control, Saturn is connected to your strong discipline and responsibility. In the same light, it is Mercury, the planet of communication, that connects to your mental agility. Your unique combination of planetary influences makes you more intellectually driven and more of a natural communicator than the other Capricorn Decans. You can always create structure and order, even in the most hectic situations. In love, you display the same devotion and dedication that characterizes all aspects of your life. Find a partner that shares in your need for faithfulness and dedication, as this will bring you the greatest sense of satisfaction.

Selecting a career may be a daunting challenge, but take comfort in knowing that your natural abilities are well-suited for numerous careers. Your gifts for communication and fortitude may be well-suited for demanding careers such as business, advertising or media. At the same time, your intellectual pursuits may take you down the path of science, research or medicine, much like Dr. Daniel Hale Williams, who was also born on January 18th. The world of entertainment may prove too alluring to ignore. If this is the case, look to the varied and successful career of Kevin Costner, another of your celebrity birthday twins, for motivation.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a woman reading tea leaves. This symbol relates to clairvoyance, but more so, it connects to your ability to see the hidden meaning in situations. Take time to embrace your intuition and gain true understanding.
