Smartness and productivity are among the several traits of people born in the month of January. They are also very ambitious and diligent, the characteristics which make them highly productive at work. Although, generally serious, they can also be humorous at times. But, they are mostly reserved and do not talk much, unless they are required to. The month of January is ruled by the sun sign, Capricorn, and the karmic planet of Saturn. Together, they render the qualities of patience, perseverance and self-motivation to the individuals born under their governance. They are strong, hardworking and very tolerant individuals. Success to these people does not come overnight. They have to struggle hard to achieve their goals. Focus and determination, the basic requisites for anyone to succeed in life, are innate to them. They are highly observant and are extremely careful about the decisions they make. They know how to make someone happy, but are too reticent when it comes to expressing their love. Their reserved demeanor makes it difficult for them to open up to others and makes them uncomfortable in presence of new people. Basically, they need to improve their social capabilities.

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.
