Venus and the Sun always do their fateful dance of creation and love, and bring the world of inspiration to those born on the 6th of January. Their existence will be filled with color and burning emotions, and this isn’t something a Capricorn has an easy time accepting. Venus is the hottest planet in the solar system and seems to absorb the most of the Sun's heat, and this is exactly what defines a nature of such a Capricorn, guided by strong initiative, passion, and emotion, only to feel the rush of love. These individuals will absorb the feel of the moment more than they know, and should always act upon impulse and their senses, rather than choose a rational approach.

These two symbols share the energy of youth, connecting high school creative time with that of a vulnerable child comforted with material things in the time of need. It is not an easy task to search so deep for the child within, but it is an obvious goal of those born on this date. Creativity has to come from an honest, childish point of view, barefoot and free from all defenses built while growing up.
January 6th is a day governed by much freer energies than a Capricorn normally needs to deal with. People born on this day are different from the rest of their “clan”, always standing out and in constant search for their freedom. With more responsibility comes true liberation, and they simply need to line up this fact in their life, realizing that being guided by simple passion isn’t enough if convictions aren’t set straight, a strong basis there, and karmic debts repaid. It might not be easy for them to heal the opposition they carry within, but love will follow them every day on their path.
Love and Emotions
A date such as January 6th brings promise of emotional rollercoasters that won’t be contained or controlled no matter how hard the person might try to restrict openness of heart towards others. Surprises will keep on coming, leading to many changes in the emotional world, often pushing them in and out of several marriages, or bringing on the pressure so strong that they wish to divorce their life-long partner when already in their nineties. There is no usual Capricorn security here, not unless a romance is based on honest and pure friendship first, only to become everything else later.
The ego battle in the energy of this date will lead to their inability to prioritize and set their focus on themselves and others in appropriate times. When their partner needs them, they will be preoccupied with their own chase for profession or financial security, and turn towards them when they are already gone. Still, life will give them many chances until they get their timing right, and we will see that the future always has new romantic surprises in stock for those born on this date.
