CAPRICORN/AQUARIUS-Cusp JAN 14 to JAN 24
Those who draw their first breath when one sign is giving place to another are said to belong on the Cusp, and so partake of the characteristics of both signs. This may be an advantage or a disadvantage, according to the harmony or in harmony of the signs. Six days in a sign is said to constitute a residence, but anything less than this time endows one with some of the qualities of the preceding sign.
The ancients gave the cusp children liberty to select their own colors and jewels from the two signs, and considered them related to the planets of both. Any other cusp information can easily be gleaned by the study of the two signs.
Capricorn/Aquarius Cusp - Jan. 14 to Jan. 24
Here is a union of two negative signs, the last sign of Earth and the last sign of Air. These elements are friendly to each other, but not as responsive as Earth and Fire. This is said to be the chief business point of all the cusps, especially as regards men and women. The latter can speculate, build houses, keep boarders—in fact, run any kind of an establishment with ease and success. Men at this point are most exact, methodical, ingenious, and cool in all their calculations and performances.
The volatility of Aquarius is beautifully counteracted by the steadiness and accuracy of Capricorn. Social engagements may be deplored, but they are usually kept even at what may seem a great inconvenience. Philanthropic work is much sought after by these people, but they are apt to tire of it quickly, especially when it causes them to neglect their own private interests. There is considerable selfishness at this point, and great pride in social and intellectual triumphs.
The business ability of these natives and their very marked ideas concerning economy insure them plenty of money. They are spasmodically generous, giving where other people do not bestow, and withholding where others give. They are original in all their ways, decided and sometimes exceedingly obstinate.
They are great talkers, and love to entertain. These natives are often very unfortunate in love and marriage.
