HOROSCOPE

Being a Capricorn born on January 15th, your gifts of intelligence and discipline are complemented by tremendous loyalty. You are a natural problem solver, in part thanks to your strong, quick mind, but also because of your notable discipline. While others may fail to reach their goals, you have the fortitude to conquer any challenge you feel is worthwhile. Although your family and friends admire these qualities, they truly appreciate your loyalty. Your loved ones would probably fail to recall a time when you were not looking out for their best interest.
