Come to December 23rd and we find ourselves talking about a stubborn Goat. You have a highly refined sense of responsibility, especially toward your job, and are probably working on your birthday unless your boss bans you from the office. There's a fine mind here, very academically honed but rather serious. You love other smart people, but have very little time to enjoy them, so typically you curl up with a good book instead.
At home, you'll find this Capricorn surrounded by tomes and educational tapes. You'll also likely find a private office of some sort where work comes home to roost. Having a birth number of 8 doesn't help ameliorate this focus in the least — it's quite content to put forward the effort necessary for long-term security (even when it appears that security has already been achieved). Needless to say, you need to give more time to play and being wistful, but don't really know how. You find sincere comfort in the routine and ordinary, and may even get frightened off by overly adventurous sorts.
In the relationship arena you aren't terribly aggressive. The busy nature of your professional life combines with shyness to make those opportunities for intimacy few and far between. The best partner for you is someone who can release your inner child, and who also has a well-defined personal life outside the relationship (for those long nights when the Capricorn's at work).
