SCORPIO/SAGITTARIUS-Cusp Nov. 17 to Nov. 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.

The love of approbation is very strong with these people, and the failure to receive what is considered their due of praise and consideration has a marked effect upon their happiness. They are natural reservoirs of strength. If this were not the case, it would be impossible to endure the strain which they voluntarily put upon themselves. Patience and passivity are the hardest lessons for these brilliant and capable people to learn, and notwithstanding their grand natural equipment they often work and fret themselves into the grave. This peculiar blending of water and fire sometimes produces a conflict of forces which ultimate in the most disagreeable pessimism.
They are apt to be very agreeable or exceedingly disagreeable.
