Being born on the cusp of two signs can be confusing! It’s hard to distinguish which sign is actually yours and being born on the cusp doesn’t require you to be born on the day before or after a sign crosses over but instead the cusp lasts nearly a week on both directions. Do you want to know what to look for with your birthday on the cusp? Does a birthday on January 20th mean your zodiac sign is Capricorn or Aquarius?
The first and simplest step in answering this question is to look at when the natal sun position, or the position of the sun at the time, date and location of your birth. In fact the location of your birth is most critical as this determines what time zone you are in. At its most basic, this will determine which zodiac sign is your primary zodiac sign. If you were born while the sun was still in Capricorn then you are a Capricorn but if the sun had transitioned into Aquarius then you are an Aquarius.
January 20 – A Cusp Date
A more in-depth look at the cusp situation for a January 20 zodiac reveals it’s just not that simple, however. In leaving the influence of the Capricorn zodiac you’ll likely have fewer Capricorn traits than you will Aquarius traits. This leaves you caught between the steady, realistic and hard-working nature of the Capricorn and the more fun-loving and imaginative Aquarius which can be quite challenging but that doesn’t mean that being both Capricorn and Aquarius doesn’t have some major upsides.
The personality of those born on the Capricorn and Aquarius cusp can be one to envy. You are dreamers and doers. Once you’ve decided on a goal with your Aquarius side, the Capricorn side will get down to it and do the hard-work until you’re done and your dream is achieved. You’ve got a great pairing of idealism and practicality – the ability to make dreams reality! When you run into problems that would stymie an Aquarius, Capricorn looks at the limitations and finds ways to work with or around them in order to continue on towards success.
The biggest problem that the January 20th zodiac has with their personality is their intolerance. Both signs tend to believe they are always right and when faced with those who don’t agree they’ll simply move on and forget about them. Additionally, they don’t have a lot of patience for people who struggle with decisions and will quickly lose their tempers.
In your career you’ll likely find that though you are most definitely a hard-worker that you are constantly dreaming up new was to improve things. The system, as it is, could use improvement and you are always coming up with new ways to make it work better. If you’re looking for a career that will suit you consider one that is a combination of science and art such as engineering!
The most important thing to understand about someone born on the cusp of Aquarius and Capricorn is that you will have to have tolerance and be willing to suffer through the necessity of team-work if you want to be fulfilled and reach your greatest potential in life. Much like a knife needs a whetstone to sharpen itself against, the friction of teamwork will help sharpen and hone a January 20 zodiac into the best version of themselves.
