Horoscopes are a celestial map representing the arrangement of the planets. The Sun and Moon, the planets, and other heavenly bodies gather at the moment of your birth to paint a landscape as unique as your personality.
When we discuss Zodiac signs, we're usually talking about Sun signs. While the Horoscope points to your Sun sign in a specific date range, the Sun's exact hour of entry into each Zodiac sign varies from year to year. The Cusp refers to those periods leading up to and immediately following that moment in time.
If you find yourself born close to the transition date between two Zodiac signs, you are considered to be “on the cusp” and are prone to share traits from both signs, despite identifying as just one. Each cusp period has unique characteristics, so let's begin our journey with the first cusp to occur in a calendar year, Capricorn and Aquarius.
The Cusp of Mystery and Imagination: Capricorn – Aquarius (Born January 16 – 23)
Saturn and Uranus govern the mid-winter Cusp of Capricorn and Aquarius. A bold mixture informed by Cardinal Earth and Fixed Air, actively shaping one's attitudes and positions regarding public standing, career, as well as groups, and friendships.
The Cardinal Earth element, Capricorn, promotes upward mobility while the Fixed Air element, Aquarius, introduces discovery and independence. Born on this Cusp, you possess a lively imagination, and you appreciate social harmony and unconventional ideas. However, you may choose to keep your best ideas low-key until the time is right.
Although you may face challenges determining a path in life, there is no stopping you when they find your purpose and cross that bridge. The route to success is steady and satisfying. A diverse group of friends and interests energizes your spirit, and you work exceptionally well in partnership with others who embrace innovation and seek to empower growth in the collective.
An intriguing atmosphere of excitement and youthfulness surrounds you, and no matter your chronological age, your energy shines bright and clear. Your radiance is dazzling!
