On the Cusp

Capricorn - Aquarius Cusp: 1/16 - 1/22

  • Imagination /
  • Contradiction /
  • Mystery

NO MATTER WHAT personality traits those born on the Capricorn-Aquarius cusp show to the public, their private life is the one that matters most. Inner fantasies, waking dreams - these are the realms that excite these creative souls.

At times, because their interior lives are so rich, Capricorn-Aquarians might feel somewhat disappointed with "real" life. The dreariness of our shared reality can feel constricted and dull, causing this beleaguered cusp to feel that life is somehow lacking. This vague sense of ennui might affect their personal relationships in a negative way - after all, it's not easy being with someone who feels that the life they're living doesn't live up to the fantasy they've created in their minds.

Of course, the upside to this abundant and satisfying imaginative life is the creativity that flows from within.

Thankfully, Capricorn-Aquarians are great communicators. Their most satisfying relationships draw on lively, intellectual discussions. Yes, they're emotional and creative, but they also crave context and admire logic and reasoning. They are driven, and can be competitive. This, combined with their creativity makes room for success in work ... if the Capricorn-Aquarius can commit to working for success in this waking realm.

As is true for most of us, the Capricorn-Aquarius holds many contradictions within them. Though they feel a strong need for security, they also long for freedom. They love learning, but also can be easily overwhelmed by life's challenges. While they feel disillusioned by reality, they also feel driven to change the world for the better.

If you are a Capricorn-Aquarian, listen up. You can be kind of critical, and that can be hard for people to take. Feel free to consider softening the way you deliver your (admittedly, ultimately beneficial) critiques.

If you know a Capricorn-Aquarian, just know that it's not you; it's them. Relish their spark, when it's there.
