The Sagittarius-Capricorn cusp is known as the "Cusp of Prophecy." This cusp is where the Sagittarius truth seeker combines with pragmatic and hardworking Capricorn.

Sagittarius-Capricorn Cusp Dates

If you were born from December 20th- 22nd, you might have been born on the Sagittarius-Capricorn cusp. However, each year the Sun changes signs on a slightly different date and time, which means you'll need a timed calculated birth chart to know for sure. If your Sun is on the last three degrees of Sagittarius (27th, 28th, or 29th degree), you were born on the Sagittarius-Capricorn cusp. However, cusp dates vary from source to source. Some even say if you were born in the days following the Sun's entrance into Capricorn, you were born on the cusp. However, the first three degrees of Capricorn are very different from the last three degrees on Sagittarius due to the astrological Decans.

Sagittarius and Capricorn

Sagittarius is the Mutable Fire sign of the zodiac, ruled by Jupiter. Capricorn is the Cardinal Earth sign ruled by Saturn, is somber, serious, responsible, and hardworking.

Mutable Fire and Cardinal Earth

The energy of Sagittarius' Mutable Fire driven forward by Capricorn's ambitious Cardinal Earth creates a cheerful, adaptable individual who emanates warmth and light, but is also stable, practical, good in a crisis, and can do anything they set their minds to. This combo creates a Sagittarian that is adaptable, quick learning, and eager. This is a Sagittarian who can set the earth on fire.

Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, is the great benefic and joyful do-gooder. Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, is somber, serious, responsible, and hardworking.

Sagittarius-Capricorn Compatibility

Romantically, Sagittarius-Capricorns are devoted and loyal to their partners, and their joy and enthusiasm for life are highly infectious. The best astrological match for these free-spirited, social, and ambitious individuals is probably a Libra. Libra is an intelligent and sociable individual who can match a Sagittarian-Capricorn's adventurous, ambitious nature. Due to Capricorn's influence, Sagittarians born on the cusp, like Libra, are marriage-minded and will work hard to overcome any difficulties in a relationship and make it the best and most beautiful it can be.

The Budding Sagittarius-Capricorn Personality

It's said by social psychologists that important personality traits develop by age six. The progressed Sun, which represents your ever growing and evolving personality, moves one degree forward in your birth chart each year. This is the logic behind the cusps. If your Sun is on the last three degrees of Sagittarius, between ages 0-3 your budding Sagittarian personality began integrating some of Capricorn's characteristics. Sagittarian traits will always lead the way, but by the time you entered school you had become a bit of a blend of Sagittarius and Capricorn.
