Born today (Jan. 18), you may well know what you want to do with your life at an early age, and though you may not see this in terms of destiny, the fact is that the stars have laid out a certain course for you that, if followed, will surely seem to most others as if you have been destined for this, that or the other. Though you may come from quite humble beginnings, you can achieve greatness and be remembered for it -- but you are never likely to lose sight of where you came from, and you will no doubt maintain a sense of humility no matter how fortunate you may be.
There may be times in which your public persona or image actually overtakes the real you and becomes far better known. On the one hand, this can be a real benefit, for you love your privacy; on the other hand, you may struggle in vain to live up to your image now and again.
Today’s Capricorn Horoscope: Your budget may not allow you to indulge as you had hoped, but you can come up with an acceptable alternative that works for everyone.
