Born on the Capricorn-Aquarius Cusp

The Cusp of Mystery and Imagination is never a dull thing

What happens when you combine the energies of capable Capricorn and quirky Aquarius? You get highly unique individuals, that’s what. If you were born between about January 17 and January 23, you were born on The Cusp of Mystery and Imagination, and there's never a dull moment. 

Whether outwardly flamboyant or shy and quiet, Capricorn-Aquarius cuspers always have much excitement going on internally. They have vivid dreams and rich fantasies that need to be expressed creatively if they’re to be happy.

Prone to leading unusual lives, “Capriquarians” often struggle to balance the two very different sides of their personalities -- they are reserved yet social, security-craving but independent, and traditional yet offbeat.

Capricorn-Aquarius cuspers love to talk and entertain, and they especially enjoy intellectually stimulating conversations about any manner of strange topics. This is why no matter how hard they work or how dedicated they are to achieving their goals, things are never dull.

While hard-work and high standards bring these cuspers much success in most career endeavors, they can have more difficulty maintaining personal relationships. This is perhaps due to a need for independence, and a tendency to seem aloof and critical -- sometimes even selfish. However, if they can put forth the loyal, funny and friendly sides of themselves they’ll make fast friends.

I was born on January 18... I was wondering if it was possible that I had aspects of the aquarius sign... because some sites say only from january 19 to 22 can.. yet, I find many aspects of the cusp to be true in my case... I think it gives me more versatility with the other signs.... can I trust this information? thanks for the attention.

Hi Kirsten! Yes, the cusp time range isn't really set in stone and you'll get a different answer from different astrologers. Purists would tell you the cusp time is really short, within a day or so of the Sun's move from one sign to another. Yet I definitely think that energy can last a few days on either side of the cusp day -- we tend to go with about three days on either side as our standard here at DH. Does that help?! :)

Karen A Kay .... OR ANYONE WITH A PROFESSIONAL KNOWLEDGE ON THIS SUBJECT: I know this page shows cusps for Capriquarian going up to Jan 22. But I've seen sites that stretched the cusp date to Jan 23-26 even. How possible is this? I did my birth chart and found that a few of my houses were heavily influenced by Capricorn. Is this possibly why I feel that the Capriquarian ways are so close to mine and not just solely Aquariaran? PLEASE SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS FOR ME.
