The 5 Scorpio Periods: Scorpio-Sagittarius Cusp
The Scorpio-Sagittarius cusp is an overlapping and admixture of the eighth sign of the zodiac, Scorpio, and the ninth sign of the zodiac, Sagittarius. The Scorpio-Sagittarius cusp is said to represent Revolution.
In the Scorpio-Sagittarius cusp period there is greater empathy with one’s fellow human beings and with it an interest in international or even universal concerns (religion, spirituality, psychic phenomena) may manifest now. The revolutionary nature of the Scorpio-Sagittarius cusp can underline the need for total reorganization if crucial changes have not yet been made in ones life.
The days which comprise the Scorpio-Sagittarius cusp reveal the active social reorganization and attendant conflict that may emerge at this point in life. The combined energies of the emotionally deep, serious and secretive Scorpio and the intuitive, outwardly-directed, freedom-loving Sagittarius reflect the need to first understand oneself and then to act to institute changes.
The Scorpio-Sagittarius Personality
The Scorpio-Sagittarius personality is characterized by rebelliousness against authority. Strangely enough, those born on this cusp who eventually find themselves in positions of authority are often able to wield power skillfully. However, generally speaking, “Scorsagians” do best in self-employed pursuits. Even those who work in larger companies or organizations, or take part in group endeavors, function most effectively when they are allowed a high degree of autonomy.
Every cusp personality comprises conflicting elements, being influenced by two very different adjacent signs. Scorpio (water) and Sagittarius (fire) energies can clash, producing internal disturbances. Feeling-intuitive types, “Scorsagians” may lack the stability of earth and the mental orientation of air, qualities needed to keep them on an even keel.
Many born on the Scorpio-Sagittarius cusp are prone to wildness, particularly in their youth when they are perhaps painfully aware of being unlike other people. Therefore, they may not even bother to prepare themselves for a more conventional life. On the other hand, those who are forced by difficult experiences to take stock of themselves in their youth, may actually gain a rare sense of directedness and purpose.
