Capricorn-Aquarius Cusp: Dates, Traits & How to Live Being One

If you’re born between January 16 and 23, then you’re a Capricorn-Aquarius cusp!
Let’s start with the basics, shall we? For you to understand how to balance these energies, it’s important that you know what you’re dealing with in astrology.

Capricorn-Aquarius: The Cusp of Mystery and Imagination (January 16-23)

So, you’re being influenced by Saturn (Capricorn) and Uranus (Aquarius), which means you’re highly intelligent, ambitious and creative. You want to take care of your world and responsibilities in a fresh, practical way that inspires others around you to do the same. You open their minds to new perspectives and excite them with your big dreams and visions for change. Hard worker meets idealist, and that drives you forward to creative success.

As a Capricorn-Aquarius Cusp, you have the stability and determination of an Earth sign, plus the creativity and flexibility of an Air sign. Your view of the world is crystal clear, and you see its problems easily. You always try to find new ways to fix them and love discussing that with others. You can actually change the world if you’re willing to speak up and show your great communication skills. Your mind is always full of electricity, and ideas come to you naturally. Sometimes it can be tough because you crave both stability and freedom.


The name “Cusp of Imagination” is no random thing… You fantasize and dream a lot! Because of that, people can sometimes see you as detached and think that you don’t care a single bit about them. You love stimulating, interesting conversations, and if others can’t provide you with that than you most likely are not interested at all. This can be a tiny bit intimidating ’cause others will have to try and match your expectations.

You’re a great friend, who’s kind and generous, but you often actually forget to take some time to listen to them. Because you want great, intellectual conversations, when it comes to the simple “Hey, how are you?” that’s not an easy job for you. The good thing is that you have this incredible ability to put yourself in other people’s shoes. You see their world in their perspective while providing them with a completely new one.

How to survive being a Capricorn-Aquarius Cusp

Ladies and gentleman, the moment you’ve been waiting for… How the heck do you balance your energies and don’t freak out?

One of the ways is to subscribe to my Youtube channel or to get a private reading with me, and I’ll call you out when things are out of order (shameless plug that I do not regret 😂).

You can have friends come and go like crazy, and sometimes – if not most times – you don’t really know why. The truth is, while intellectual conversations can be awesome, a little emotion and catching up with friends is necessary to keep it going. If you don’t try to put in a little effort from the heart, you may not have those people around when you need some help.

Your head is all about the future and possibilities, but try to settle it down from time to time and focus on the present moment. You can, at times, miss great opportunities that you were just dreaming of the day before. Also, remember that those ideas and wishes need some work. Dreaming it doesn’t make it all, you gotta make it happen too.

Call in the neighbour

When Capricorn is being highly independent and a bit stubborn asking for help, call in Aquarius. Appreciate and connect with those around you. Sometimes it doesn’t even have to be with friends. Go on Pinterest or a Facebook group and look for inspiration and opinions from others. Let all those who love you help and inspire you. Be open to them.

Aquarius has a bunch of wisdom and insight into the world, and is constantly thinking about what’s to come. You can get pretty disappointed when all those visions and hopes don’t take place as you imagined them. Call in Capricorn and, once again, don’t forget about the present moment. Ground yourself and appreciate all this world is giving you right now. Practice gratitude in your meditation or as a little morning/night ritual with a journal.

Schedule some time each week or so to connect with friends. Go out and relax. Meditation is a bit go-to option when you want to ground yourself, and that is essential! You can do a group meditation or even a yoga class. A good option is going for some walks in the middle of nature where you breathe that fresh air. Painting can also be a safe spot for you to let some of those ideas flow from your mind and create room for more. Don’t forget that emotions are a part of being human so let them out. If you don’t feel like sharing it with the world, then grab a journal. You should know, however, that intimacy is a big key for a balanced life.
