January 8 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Your Capricorn birthday points to a personality that is strong, dedicated, and ambitious, yet subtle, unassuming, and refined. Although determined, competitive, and hardworking, you also possess imagination, sensitivity, and charismatic charm. With all your practicality and worldly sense, it is important that you not lose sight of the intuitive insight or sense of vision implied by your birthday.
With the subinfluence of your decanate ruler, Taurus, your flair for music, the arts, and dealing with money can often bring you success and fulfillment. When interacting with others, you profit from your excellent people skills and talents. With an appreciation of beauty, glamour, and the good life, you prefer to be in harmonious or even luxurious environments. Although you possess the ability to enchant others, they may not see that behind your bold facade you may occasionally suffer from inner confusion or doubt.
While you suffer from a touch of inertia as far as your grand dreams and ideals are concerned, the thought of material success usually moves you into action. Strong-willed and bright, you have the ability to assimilate knowledge quickly if you are interested. Your enthusiasm for projects you love can be most impressive. This can help you overcome a sensitive nervousness or discontent that could attract you to destructive pastimes such as drugs or drink. However, your strong sense of style, coupled with a flair for the dramatic, ensures that you can stand out in a crowd.
In your youth a powerful woman may make an impact on you. From the age of thirteen to forty-two, when your progressed Sun moves through Aquarius, you tend to be less traditional or cautious, more freedom-loving, and group-oriented. You may develop unconventional interests or have a strong desire to express your individuality. After the age of forty-three, when your progressed Sun moves into Pisces, your emotional sensitivity and intuition increase. You may place more importance on your dreams, ideals, or spiritual or psychic awareness. At the age of seventy-three, there is another turning point as your progressed Sun enters Aries. This accents a need to take direct action on issues that affect you, rather than being too passive.
