Happy birthday, Capricorns! As one of the strongest and most determined signs in the zodiac, there is quite literally nothing you can’t do. People can count on you to be a loyal and stable presence in their lives, but don’t take that to mean you’re boring–in fact, your clever solutions and resourcefulness are nothing short of astounding. No matter the complexity of a situation, a Capricorn can always, to borrow a phrase from Tim Gunn, “make it work.” Here are 10 ways the rest of us can take a cue from the Capricorn lifestyle…
1. Give every project your all, and don’t quit until you’ve accomplished exactly what you set out to do.
2. Create a beautiful and welcoming home where you can bring people together.
3. Be the ultimate multi-tasker–don’t underestimate your ability to juggle many different projects.
4. Utilize all of the resources at your disposal with tact and ingenuity.
5. Don’t be afraid to be alone.
6. Be prepared for anything life throws at you by analyzing and thinking through all possible outcomes.
7. Put your mind, heart, and soul into your work.
8. Shower your loved ones with thoughtful cards and gifts.
9. Always be willing to help people see practical solutions to life’s complexities.
10. Know that you have a deep well of inner strength and draw on it in times of need.
