On the Cusp

Scorpio - Sagittarius Cusp: 11/18 - 11/24

  • Rebellious /
  • Revolutionary /
  • Contrarian

What happens when that dark and intense Scorpio energy meets the bold and active Sagittarius? It's a wild combination, a rebel yell, and it's not for the faint of heart.

Ruled by Pluto, Mars, and Jupiter, those born on the Scorpio-Sagittarius cusp live to go against the grain. Tell them that it's done one way and they'll show you how it's done the other. These are self-taught experts, and they learn by doing. They are the wild child of the Zodiac - but what happens when that child grows up? When the rebel becomes the ruler?

The fearless leader, that's what. If the Scorpio-Sagittarius can apply all they've learned in their full, adventurous life, they can make wonderful authority figures. They have the potential to be truly progressive and powerful, but they need to remember to maintain objectivity and not to let their emotions get the best of them. Knee-jerk reactions can be their downfall.

For those on this cusp for whom the Scorpio energy is strong, jealousy can also be their achilles heel. They can be possessive in relationships, but they can also be kind, romantic, and loving. Their competitive nature is the true engine for their success, especially when their main competitor is themselves. That, paired with their innate ability to see things through, will get them across the finish line every time.

So, if you are a Scorpio-Sagittarius, and find yourself butting up against your bosses, seriously consider self-employment. Of course, knowing you, you probably already figured that out long ago and have built a career for yourself that forces you to answer to no one. In that case, take heed: Focus on kindness and generosity when it comes to your professional interactions.

And, if you know a Scorpio-Sagittarius, their pessimism might get you down at times. Their "been there, done that" attitude might make you feel left out. But you'd follow them to the ends of the earth, wouldn't you? Their lust for life makes it all worth it.
