Since Saturn rules them, these individuals tend to be humorous, but a bit reserved with a practical streak. They tend to be organized and can juggle multiple tasks with ease. Capricorns will continue on with a project long after others give up. They tend to plan carefully, and as a result, achieve outstanding results with seemingly little effort. These individuals can also be pessimistic and hold grudges.

Personality Traits & Characteristics of Famous People Born on January 8th   

People born on this day have great organizational skills and a deeply ingrained work ethic. They tend to be realistic, conventional in their thinking, and they possess a respect for authority that borders on being excessive, at times. Capricorns tend to favor simple foods and time with family. They enjoy studying history, collecting antiques, and they value privacy. They intensely dislike being teased or embarrassed. These individuals can’t tolerate disorder or being pressurized. They also give and expect unconditional love from everyone in their lives. However, one should not expect these individuals to ever voluntarily accept new ideas or walk an unknown path.

Capricorns may have issues with their knees, joints, and bones, which makes these individuals vulnerable to arthritis, rheumatism, and general joint pain. They also tend to have dry, sensitive skin. Capricorns also have problems with alcoholism. They tend to worry too much and skip meals, which saps their energy. There is also a tendency to overeat after a long workday. The love of spicy food is an inherent trait in Capricorns and often leads to intestinal issues. On the plus side, Capricorns tend to live long lives since, apart from alcoholism, their health issues don’t tend to be life-shortening.

Since Capricorns tend to be dedicated workers and are practical thinkers saving money is not a problem. These hardworking individuals also tend to be self-motivated. They are on top of monthly bills and constantly tweak their household budgets. They are also always on the lookout for money-making opportunities.

Capricorns tend to do well in careers that require organization and patience. They are stable employees who make excellent accountants, financial planners and professional organizers. These individuals have an eye for detail, so they also make good computer programmers and small business owners.

Relationships, Marriage & Children
Capricorns tend to be wary of the opposite sex and take time to warm-up to the idea of a relationship. However, once they decide to marry, they are dedicated partners who due to their long-term planning ability create a stable family life. However, the individuals born on this particular day have a tendency to hold emotional situations at bay. However, since Capricorns are an earth sign, they want to improve everything about themselves and are willing to try and learn what it takes to be a truly loving spouse and parent.
