SAGITTARIUS/CAPRICORN-Cusp DEC 17 to DEC 27
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.
Sagittarius/Capricorn Cusp - Dec. 17 to Dec. 27
These natives seem, as a rule, very much happier than those who are born in the sign Capricorn. The genial Jupiter outwits for a few days the sombre Saturn, and the warmth of Sagittarius acts like a charm upon this last Earth sign. The inordinate social and intellectual ambition of Capricorn is modified by the more ethereal and democratic attributes of its neighbor.
These cuspers are among the great thinkers and workers of the world. They are inspired teachers of the young and much fonder of children than the average Capricorn, who expects little folks to be constantly on their good behavior. This is a good point for the successful training of musical talent, as the musical atmosphere is ever present. It is made by the response of earth to fire and the companionable influence of Jupiter.
These people are great observers and fine critics, and are more just and kindly in their criticisms than the average Sagittarius or Capricorn person. They do not fall in love easily, but when they marry it is usually because of affection, and when this is the case are constant. They demand the best of everything, give of their best, and seem to attract naturally all the good things of life.
They are just, exact, methodical, and efficient in all that they undertake, whether they like the work or not. They are good dancers, good linguists, and the best of travelling companions.
