Another group of individuals born in this month are the ones born on the Capricorn/Aquarius cusp. It combines the serious and typical traits that come with being a Capricorn with the creativity and inquisitiveness that drives an Aquarius. Individuals falling in this category are extremely visual and their life revolves around artistic things. Their patience is unmatched and they are highly disciplined. They have a burning desire to know more and explore new venues. They are also meticulous about details and make sure that every aspect of a problem is covered, without fail. They are funny and attractive, but can be a little tenacious at times. They aren’t exactly imposing like the other Capricorns, but can be harshly critical, a weakness hard to overcome. However, their strong focus and determination supersedes their lacunas. As friends, they are compassionate and are not afraid of taking action (against people or an authority) if something undesirable happens.
