The Cusp of Sagittarius and Capricorn: An Overview
Before we get into specifics about the cusp of Sagittarius and Capricorn it is important to learn what is a cusp in the first place. A cusp in astrology refers to the imaginary line separating each zodiac constellation from the other. So who are cusp zodiacs? These are the signs who were born during the time when the sun was transitioning from one sign to another or crossing this so-called ‘imaginary line’.
For instance, you were born on the 19th of February, so this is considered to be the first day of the Pisces season. However, the sun may not have entered Pisces until 8 o’clock that evening. Thus, if someone is born on this day before 8 pm then they will be considered to be on the Aquarius Pisces cusp.
Those who were born between two signs are believed to carry the traits of both zodiacs. Some astrologers believe that your sun sign is definite regardless of how close the cusp you were born in. There are others however who truly believe in the existence of cusps. So traits of both sides and the cusps they were born on should be taken into consideration.
The Sagittarius Capricorn Cusp
People born between December 18th-24th comprise the Sagittarius-Capricorn cusp. Their rulers are Jupiter for Sagittarius, and Saturn for Capricorn. Jupiter is the planet of expansion and magnification, while Saturn is all about lessons and contraction, thus it is quite an interesting mix of themes.
Those born on this cusp are known to have very cheerful and fun-loving qualities, but at the same time can also be serious and realistic, depending on the day. It depends if they are closer to the end of the Sag season or closer to the beginning of the Capricorn season.
For instance, if it’s just the beginning of winter solstice, an early Saturn-ruled Capricorn would have occasional bouts of being bright and bubbly. But those born on December 19th, those who are at the very end of Sag and at the very beginning of the cusp, yes, you could also be jovial but will have a few bouts of seriousness, even depression.
Why the SagiCorn is Called the Cusp of Prophecy
The key words to remember about this cusp are see and use. “I use” for the Capricorn, and “I see” for the Sagittarius. These people have a lot of prophetic abilities because of this combination. They also have concrete, realistic, and grounded qualities. This placement has amazing modes of intuition for the fire element and sensation for the earth element. The fire and earth combination is what gives these individuals a very stately and imposing presence.
Because of Jupiter and Saturn, their strengths are intensified, with sheer zeal, grit, and determination in life. They can also be capable of being enigmatic and devoid of emotion, depending on the situation. So it’s up to you if you will look at it from a positive or negative point of view. These people have a serious outlook on life, but it doesn’t mean that they are not optimistic at all. They’re good at keeping silent but their actions speak volumes.
When the Sagittarius Capricorn Cusp Misfires
What happens when the negative aspects of the SagiCorn misfire? They can be so unfriendly or anti-social because of their push-and-pull tendencies. Those with a stellium in Sagittarius or Jupiter in strong angles are more likely to experience this. People who have a stellium will feel these energies more deeply throughout their lives.
Jupiter always magnifies and expands which is not always good for Saturn, because it wants to constrict and contract. Saturn is more concerned about preserving its resources, being prudent about its energies, and not squandering them without reason. And it is Jupiter and Saturn’s being so diametrically opposed that is causing this strong push and pull.
Mitigating the Push and Pull Situation
The key, therefore, is learning to balance this push and pull so that there isn’t too much fun, nor too much seriousness in the lives of people born at this time. Those who are born around or on the Winter Solstice are people who may have psychic or psychic-like capabilities, regardless of whether you believe it or not. They have a knack for seeing super vivid visions and have no trouble recalling them.
The Sagittarius Capricorn Cusp On Relationships
This goes for all of the SagiCorns relationships, be it with family, friends, lovers, co-workers, or even their pets. Being a Capricorn makes them super loyal and caring. They love to help others and people tend to gravitate towards them because they know they can look and listen without prejudice and will help them find a practical solution to their problems. With the Saturn energy, they give out amazing and sound advice.
The lessons that they have learned are then imparted to the ones who currently need their advice. They have gone through so much that they are now capable of teaching people what to do so they don’t have to go through the same troubled past. SagiCorns also serve as spectacular teachers and mentors, even without knowing it. People young and old look up to them because they sound and feel like old souls
Why SagiCorns Are Misunderstood
SagiCorns can be so engrossed in something that they sometimes appear to be out of touch. Say you’re working on this big break, an amazing project that you’re really proud and excited about. You’re at the office from dusk ’till dawn and you refuse to leave the office until you’re satisfied with the day’s work. It’s like this for months until it’s finally over, without realizing, you have taken a lot of people for granted. You were too busy to tell them what’s going on and so they’re left frustrated and confused about you.
There is nothing wrong with being super interested and passionate in your career and other endeavors, as long as you learn how to balance it with your personal relationships. People will end up wondering whether or not you still care about them if there was something they said or did that made you suddenly turn cold. It’s not right, nor is it fair. So don’t forget about the people who love you, bear in mind the importance of self-care, and learn to strike the perfect balance between the two.
Dealing With the Struggles of Being a SagiCorn
So here are some tips on how to deal with the struggles of a SagiCorn.
Create a Plan/Schedule
This is crucial because as the saying goes, if you failed to plan, then you definitely planned to fail. So make a plan, create a schedule, and a list of goals when you want them accomplished. However, don’t be too rigid with the dates, nor be too hard on yourself if they are not achieved on the dot. Just be gentle with yourself and try to create realistic goals, making sure the time between, work, play, rest, and socializing is evenly distributed.
This is not to say that you are not. There are times however when you can be so hard on other people whenever they fail to meet your expectations. You work around the clock and you don’t settle for anything less than “perfection”. And because you set up the bar too high for yourself and for others other people have a hard time reaching it.
Thus, it’s important to create some room for acceptance. Accept that not everyone thinks or acts like you, or works as hard, or as driven as you. They don’t have the same amount of focus or energy as you do. The best you can do is show some empathy and compassion. Sometimes, leading by example is not enough. Help them whenever, wherever you can. Don’t wait for them to tell you they are struggling before you step in. Be clear and straightforward with your advice.
Write Things Down
It’s difficult enough to have conflicting energies inside of you, and the random thoughts going on inside your head can be too much to bear at times. So what do you do? Write them down. Keep a journal with you. Create a space where you can just throw in a bunch of ideas that will come in handy someday. It may not make sense to anyone else, but it will certainly make sense to you.
At this time, it’s a good idea to allow your Capricorn side to handle the situation. Just make sure you don’t linger too much in one place and stay stuck in the situation. For instance, don’t be too caught up in the “planning stage”. Where you don’t want to start until you have the perfect set-up, the perfect gear, the perfect timing, the perfect budget, etc. All these plans will soon fade away and before you know it you have lost interest in them.
Fuel Your Creativity
Fueling your creativity is not an easy feat for sure. Don’t be too proud that you refuse to seek help from others. Yes, you want to be independent, and wish to be your own master. But it is important to connect with other people like you, gifted creators so you can keep your creative juices flowing. Don’t forget the power of brainstorming. Throwing out ideas back and forth will help you branch them out, develop them, and expand them into something unique and awesome.
Spend time with someone more earthy so you can ask them for advice regarding more serious or solid work. What are their struggles and how did they overcome them? If deep inside you’re a self-proclaimed know-it-all, you’ll be surprised why you haven’t thought of their ideas before.
Final Thoughts On the Sagittarius Capricorn Cusp
The overall theme of this post when it comes to explaining why you should take cusps into consideration like in SagiCorn is the fact that there are so many other aspects of the birth chart influencing the way one experiences their sun sign. There is no absolute or definite answer to anything and a lot of this depends on where your planets are positioned, what aspects are made to your sun sign, your sun’s degrees, etc.
These are some of the things other people don’t take into consideration and would rather have a superficial view of the cusp meaning and ideology. Cusps are not ridiculous or complete nonsense. However, it is understandable that it is not everyone’s cup of tea, although it will help greatly if everyone could keep an open mind about astrology.
