My vanity makes me want to read this stuff to see if there is any truth to it. There usually is. However, because I am born on a cusp, I do not share 100% of ALL Scorpio or Sagittarius traits. For instance, a widely known Scorpio trait is that they are not very forgiving; it takes A LOT to push me to the point where I have no desire to forgive someone. Getting people to understand that is pointless. Anyway, enjoy a slight peek into what a Scorpio/Sagittarius cusp looks like :)
And thanks Mojo!

In Depth Personality Overview
Individuals born on the cusp of Scorpio (the eighth Sign of the Zodiac) and Sagittarius (the ninth Sign of the Zodiac) are ruled by both Pluto…with a secondary influence afforded by Mars…and Jupiter. Here, the bold and aggressive traits associated with Scorpio, courtesy of Mars, blend with the active and versatile nature of Sagittarius, complete with that Sign’s highly magnetic qualities afforded by Jupiter. Thus, these cuspians can accomplish the most difficult things and meet virtually any emergency. The zeal of Sagittarius offsets any Scorpio procrastination, resulting in a far-reaching strength of purpose and accomplishment. These natives are frank and open-minded, perhaps a little too much so, but they usually manage to curb their egos to the simple point of self-satisfaction over true accomplishment. The Scorpio/Sagittarius cuspian is of the type that can succeed at whatever he or she might undertake. No obstacles seem to stop these individuals, save the overconfidence in their own ability. If they should lapse into the Scorpio tendency to delay, then they will compensate with the fervor of Sagittarius, frequently expending too much effort in their project. In essence, the fiery nature of Sagittarius can burn itself out when it has the watery Scorpio in attendance to act as a damper. Accordingly, fire and water should be properly separated in order to produce steam with steady and powerful results.
The Scorpio/Sagittarius cusp combination, also known as the Cusp of Revolution, corresponds symbolically to the period of human life at around the age of fifty-six, a time when inescapable changes must take place…retirement may be looming on the horizon, marriages and other relationships may be forsaken and physical limitations may have to be confronted. However, this cusp comes with a greater empathy for fellow human beings and an interest in international or even universal concerns. At this stage, many individuals can experience resentment and/or rebelliousness at not having done what they truly wanted to do in life. Indeed, many perceive this period as a last chance. The revolutionary nature of this cusp can underline the need for total reorganization if crucial changes have not yet been made. The revolt that engages most Scorpio/Sagittarius cuspians is often the battle against sloppiness, bad taste, ineffectiveness, stupidity and old-fashioned or outmoded attitudes. Although these natives are capable of exploding ancient myths, they are equally capable of reviving and preserving myths that they view to be useful. Thus, those governed by this cusp may, at heart, also be secret traditionalists.
Characterized by a disdain for middle-of-the-road politics and middle-class ethics, most Scorpio/Sagittarius cuspians would rather be either very rich or very poor…either an aristocrat or a working-class hero/heroine. Indeed, any one of these would be infinitely preferable to anything that might fall inbetween. This yearning for extremes leads many natives of this cusp to indulge in excesses, often in more than one area of their lives. Such individuals are usually well aware from an early age that they are different from other people. An unusual combination of opposities, those born on the Scorpio/Sagittarius cusp blend the sensitivity of Scorpio with the freedom-loving character of Sagittarius. Thus, within their own families, these subjects may occupy something of a lonely position in relation to parents or siblings. In fact, their assessment of their peculiar abilities and strong drive to succeed often dates from childhood years. Making future plans and dreaming up elegant new schemes (in addition to guiding a decent percentage of them to fruition) are all characteristic of the Scorpito/Sagittarius imagination and determination. Those ruled by this cusp are both goal-oriented and result-oriented, frequently displaying the same degree of stubborness when choosing a friend or life partner, whom they may pursue with unrelenting zeal.
The laughter of these cuspians is a direct barometer of their mental health. If there is no merriment within the first few minutes of conversation, then it can generally be assumed that something is awry. Those who fall under the jurisdiction of this cusp can use cutting sarcasm and derision, not only to make a laughingstock of their enemies, but to give even their dearest friends a good poke in the ribs every now and again. In this respect, they tend to operate with something of a double standard since they do not take kindly to being derided themselves, perceiving such teasing as an attempt to humiliate. Thus, an individual will never be given a second opportunity to be condescending to natives of this cusp. Moral questions are important to these cuspians. They strive to be honest but sometimes fail. They believe in being truthful but frequently cannot measure up to their own standards. Finding it difficult to be totally open and honest with those closest to them, Scorpio/Sagittarius individuals may tell only a part of the truth, which results in personal embarrassment and regret if they are found out later. Still, these subjects are blessed with undeniable charm and their well-meaning, faithful and loyal attitudes will usually lead those who love them to be forgiving.
Natives of this cusp tend to be concerned with the deeper and more focused aspect of learning. They are versatile and progressive, but can oftentimes be impatient and pushy…particularly if something is not getting accomplished in the manner they want. Anyone who would wish to change the mind of this cuspian will undoubtedly meet with trouble because it is never certain exactly what the motiviation might be. In short, those governed by the Scorpio/Sagittarius cusp are far too complex and usually far too secretive to be easily understood. Interested in thought and outreach, these are normally intensely powerful, good-humoured and generous souls. Prone to respond to the world courtesy of emotion and action instead of thoughtful practicality, they would rather experience life than read about it. They can appear irresponsible or tactless on occasion but are basically motivated and loyal individuals. Still, these cuspians are often misunderstood, frequently perceived as being dictatorial and/or sarcastic. Broad-minded and enthusiastic, there is a tendency here to speak before thinking. A cusp combination of great depth, its natives, many of whom are blessed with a daring an adventurous nature, enjoy travel and spiritual study. These individuals aspire to rise above the ordinary world into something quite extraordinary, but their suspicion and jealousy can serve to pull them down. Still, they do possess passion and awareness that could prove to be saving graces in that regard. With an inherent love of a good time, the Scorpio/Sagittarius subject is usually outgoing and friendly. Indeed, many are natural comedians, often exaggerating their adventures to entertain others. Here, the innate self-confidence may cause these natives to be argumentative and/or blunt, but their sole intention is always to learn and not to offend. High-spirited, enthusiastic and frequently flirtatious, Scorpio/Sagittarius cuspians tend to enjoy a social life. They are also fond of competition. Seldom satisfied with moving at half-speed or softening their abilities to allow those with lesser skills to beat them, personal challenges are always appreciated. They are apt to prefer solitary or one-on-one sports that will stretch them to the limit…skydiving or big game fishing, for example. They are also likely to be rather lucky souls and probably enjoy gambling, while the philosophical aspect of their character denotes a fondness for drama and debate.
The great strength of Scorpio/Sagittarius cuspians is to be found in their determination to see things through to the end. They refuse to allow boredom to turn them away from projects and are committed to accomplishing what they set out to do. The philosophical and exploratory nature of these natives makes it important to live life to the fullest while experiencing everything they can. Indeed, their great love of knowledge and exploration makes them one of the most learned characters of the Zodiac.
The most important lesson to be learned by Scorpio/Sagittarius natives is to be aware of the fact that their passionate nature can easily lead them into self-indulgance and/or compulsion. As with all cusp individuals, these cuspians tend to be attracted to others born on the cusp…particularly those who fall within the Pisces/Aries and Cancer/Leo combinations.
