Strengths of a January 12 Zodiac Sign

Capricorns are sensible individuals. They are grounded in reality. Their ability to see the world for what it is can also lead them to see all the possibilities. This sign realizes that hard work can take you quite far, and they are often described as workhorses. One downfall of being as hardworking as these individuals is that they can quickly become burnt out because they hate asking for help! They would much rather do it all on their own. 

If your child is a go-getting Capricorn, pay attention to signs of burnout and teach them to take care of themselves first! 

Loyalty is another positive trait of the January 12 Zodiac sign. They love their people and show it through remaining loyal to them. With this loyalty comes the ability to see the potential that others may possess. This can be great because Capricorns will quickly become your greatest cheerleader. Yet, it can also be frustrating for a Capricorn when they realize not everyone enjoys reaching their fullest potential. 

Capricorns are sometimes considered serious individuals who do not know how to have fun. This is because they are very practical and pragmatic. While their grounded nature may hold them back and give them a disposition of shyness at first, Capricorns really are fun to be around. They can be humorous in a sarcastic way that may make you turn your head the first time you hear them. The sarcasm can be unexpected coming from such a realistic person! 

Weaknesses of a January 12 Zodiac Sign

Sometimes, Capricorns can be pessimists. Their innate nature to see the world for what it is may mean the negativity affects them to the point where they become sad and cynical. This can be combated by showing your child all the good that still exists in people and the world. 

January 12 Capricorns love to help others. They enjoy giving out advice and are friendly and direct. This can be a great attribute to have; however, being so direct may mean it is hard to keep and make friends because this Capricorn never shies away from truth-telling. 

Additionally, Capricorns are quite stubborn. They do not easily let go of their strongly held beliefs. Although, January 12th Capricorns tend to have an easier time with adaptability.

Compatibility of a January 12th Birthday

When it comes to relationships, your January 12th baby may be more compatible with certain signs than others. For starters, Capricorns tend to think with their minds over their hearts. Therefore, their practical nature makes it easier for them to relate with other earth signs. These are other Capricorns, Taurus, and Virgo. Additionally, water signs are easier for Capricorns to relate with as well. Although these water signs, Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio, tend to be more emotional than Capricorns, these signs have a better line of communication. 

Capricorns have more difficulty communicating and getting along well with air and fire signs. While Capricorns are more grounded and practical, they find it harder to relate to a fire sign, which they may view as obnoxious and rash. In addition, air signs may feel too flighty to the ever-pragmatic Capricorn. However, this doesn't mean that Capricorns can't get along well with these signs; it only takes more intentionality.

Capricorns can be quite stubborn and may have difficulty seeing another sign's point of view. However, when they take the time to do so, these relationships can become some of the deepest and most cherished relationships they have!
