A Capricorn-Aquarius cusp is born with a unique melange of traits that are distinctive of any other cusp combination. This sea goat-cum-water bearer can exhibit opposite natures and combine two opposites into one powerful and beneficial personality trait.
The Cusp of Mystery & Imagination, Indeed!
We mix two ingredients to get the flavors of both, or, so that the sweetness of one can counteract the sharpness of another. But, what if you get an unknown result by mixing two known elements? Yes, a Capricorn-Aquarius cusp takes the traits of both Capricorn and Aquarius, adds a touch of its own mystery and imagination, and emerges as an unusual personality with a unique flavor of its own.
Many times, the melange of two separate zodiac signs brings about a set of both positives and negatives from both the worlds. But the case of a Capricorn-Aquarius cusp is a unique one. The fusion of the strengths and weaknesses of both the signs makes this individual stronger, rather than holding him/her back or puddled in life. If you are born on, or in between the dates of January 19 to 23, you have a more developed personality type than an individual Capricorn or an Aquarius, or both combined.
Capricorn and Aquarius are the 10th and 11th signs of the zodiac chart. While the former is ruled by the planet Saturn and has cardinal qualities, the latter is ruled by both Saturn and Uranus and contains fixed qualities. Capricorn is an earth sign, while Aquarius is an air sign. As these signs appear at the later stage of the zodiac, in human life, they resemble approximately 70 years of existence. This is the time when a person acquires an insight of what matters and what doesn’t matter in life. He or she focuses on productive and spiritually comforting activities rather than wasting the remaining time in gallivanting.
Traits of a Person Born on the Capricorn-Aquarius Cusp
A Capricorn-Aquarius cusp, irrespective of being a man or a woman, is someone who is born with all that is required to reform the world, to alter what exists in the right manner, as it should have ideally been. The vividity of this combo, when combined with the urge to uphold tradition and customs that he or she has been brought up in, is what paves the way for transformation around. Yes, this water-bearing sea goat can be quite unpredictable because of the genius―that may cause borderline insanity―in this individual. But, rest assured, the ability of this sign to infuse its cons with the pros, and make them the ‘super-power pros’ is remarkable indeed! Let us go through the positive and negative traits of this ‘airth’ (air and earth) sign.
The Positive Traits
✓ Vivid Dreamer
This cusp is a reformist, visionary, humanitarian, and a born philanthropist! He (or she) values his freedom and is ever willing to help others achieve the same. This sign is born to make a difference in the world, and it has all the qualities that it needs to do so.
This person can be highly expressive and talkative, or can be quite shy and reserved. But within, he or she will have a private world filled with excitement, fantasy, vividity, and eccentricity. Being highly visual in nature, this person always tends to carry his or her own quota of excitement with him or her. This is why this cusp is also a great entertainer!
A Capricorn-Aquarius derives all the inspiration he or she needs from both, the vivid dreams and the living reality. This fuels the creative instinct of this individual, which, in turn, becomes a medium for him or her to communicate or link their dreams with reality.
While someone else from the zodiac chart would get tired of a project and probably let go, this cusp would never do that! This is because this person has a double supply of motivation and drive to keep going till the task undertaken is accomplished.
The cardinal trait of Capricorn will motivate this cusp to persevere, to gain authority and power. However, the fixed trait of Aquarius will still keep this cusp on the path to achieve his or her goal even if it gains no profit. While the Capricorn side of this person would leave the project in this case, the Aquarius side will persevere to complete it for the sake of the vision and imagination associated with it.
Another trait, which is no less than a blessing, is that this person is born with his or her ability to transform dreams into reality. This cusp is both realistic and a dreamer, practical and experimental. The plus point is that instead of following a set path, this cusp isn’t afraid to discover paths of its own. Being the bearer of a curious mind, the ideas and experiments that come from this cusp-bearer, are truly brilliant in the true sense of the word.
A Capricorn-Aquarius is also multitalented. He or she can be a great artist and/or a revolutionary scientist! No wonder this sign is often called the genius of cusps! The creativity, open-mindedness, and radical viewpoint makes this cusp-born quite successful in his or her career.
The presence of the planet Saturn makes ‘discipline’ an important aspect in the life of this water-bearing sea goat. Saturn rules both Capricorn and Aquarius, and is also associated with hard work, which is why this individual is loaded with progressive traits.
This cusp has the right amount of confidence, which is backed by the right amount of caution and practicality. Yes, this cusp wishes to paint the world with his or her creativity and fantasy, but does so with a realistic and balanced approach.
A Capricorn-Aquarius is a great friend who will never let those in his or her company have a dull moment. Didn’t we say, this cusp carries his/her own quota of entertainment all the time? He or she brings about a sense of freshness and newness in the way the world sees things
The Negative Traits
Being so disciplined and determined, this individual may become quite critical and bossy towards those who lack these very traits. This overcriticism and demanding attitude may make things difficult for this sign, who very well knows how crucial it is to remain in the good books of one and all.
Somewhere down the line, a Capricorn-Aquarius lacks the ability to let go when he or she becomes the recipient of criticism! Also, it becomes difficult for him or her to understand why others cannot perceive his or her point of view or vision in the same way as intended.
Yes, this cusp can be quite open-minded and eccentric at times, but when it comes to his or her personal beliefs and ideologies, narrow-mindedness is what comes across.
What governs the heart and mind of this person all life is the need to maintain and high standards. Due to this, he or she can be judgmental towards others, who fail to match the standards expected by this cusp.
When it comes to forming personal relationships, the overcritical nature and standards that this sign exhibits, makes it difficult for him or her to be in a satisfying relationship. In fact, on the flip side, this cusp can also become overly emotional in a romantic relationship!
While sailing on the course of making dreams turn to reality, this cusp can take the direction of rebellion too. The offbeat viewpoint and approach may face opposition of many; however, this stubborn creature doesn’t know how to give up and will leave no stone unturned, even if they are engraved with the word ‘rebel’.
In the absence of loved ones not being able to understand the needs of this zodiac-born, or when the fantasy and excitement seems to diminish in reality, this person may tend to wander off to the inner dream world of his (or her) own. This may exhibit a sense of coldness, harshness, aloofness, and secretiveness in his or her demeanor.
To be determined without any reason is what is called stubbornness! And this is not always good.
This cusp enjoys social interactions and is quite the life of any party. However, he or she can truly gel with only those who share the same intellectual quotient. This is another contributing factor as to why this individual finds it difficult to maintain personal relationships.
At some point of time, a Capricorn-Aquarius cusp needs to find a point of balance between the world of vivid dreams and reality. The lack of this balance can cause depression and detachment from others. Although a little challenging, it is very much achievable.
The presence of a Capricorn-Aquarius in your life can never let you have a dull moment. This sign brings forth a much-needed sense of refreshment in the mechanical and monotonous world where we live. Irrespective of how friendly or entertaining this person may be, there will always be a sense of secret or mystery in him or her, due to this high inclination towards fantasy and vividity. No wonder this cusp combo has been given the title of being the ‘Cusp of Mystery and Imagination‘! After all, what is mystery if it’s not unpredictable, and what is imagination, if it is not as vivid as the individual belonging to a Capricorn-Aquarius cusp?
