January-born people are believed to be vibrant and zestful, possessing a blazing fire within them. Associating with this passion, deep red is regarded a lucky color for Capricorns. Red is the color of extremes, which symbolizes passion, love, power and religion. Along with lucky color and lucky number, there are birthstones linked with each month of the year.

By and large, the blush of garnets engenders peace, courage, and optimism.
