Picture, if you will, a fearless serial killer who does not harm people but destroys any and all stereotypes–a serial killer of stereotypes! If you can picture that, then you will understand the Scorpio-Sagittarius-Cuspers; Mars, Pluto, and Jupiter energy: brute force, unbridled fearlessness, and disdain for limitation. Similarly are the Baby-boomers; they thrived on rebelling against authority in their younger years, but now that they are in the autumn of their day they find that they are the ones holding the talking stick. Ironic, isn’t it? All mountains are formed and developed along a similar life-path: great upheaval and rebellion followed by generous beauty and majesty and dominion.
Don’t let the rebellion or destructive tendencies scare you. The Pluto influence is a profluence of death and regeneration, death that is the antecedent of change and growth. Consider the great Sufis and Whirling Dervishes who sought to die a thousand times a day. The fine art of burning away the falsehoods so that truth can rise like a Phoenix from the ashes. William Blake, an English Romanticist and poet, also one of my favorite Sagittarians, requested that his burial epitaph read: “Here lies a man who has died a thousand times.” I want to be like that, and I know you do too. Growth and then surrender to a newer and more evolved version of one’s self. Scorpio-Sagittarius-Cuspers are oh so good at this.
Date Range: November 19th through November 24th.
What they need: They need balance, they need a focus or a mission or it will seem as if they are running wild or are looking for a fight (e.g., Billy the Kid).
Relationships: Scorpio-Sagittarius-Cuspers make dynamic and loyal lovers, especially when they believe you love them, and they happen to have a lifestyle that is a balanced one. What will stand out is their open mind and a highly evolved sense of humor. Half-of-love does not appeal to this character–this means they are better suited for the all-or-nothing monogamous style of relationship or no relationship at all.
Strengths: Adventurous (i.e., wild), passionate, sophisticated, blunt, Generous (with a capital G), energetic, profound, self-reliant, progressive, spiritual, didactic.
Weaknesses: Selfishness, bluntness, compulsiveness. In their younger years they often appear wild (don’t worry, when they get older they will be boldly self-disciplined and fearless), bossy, self-centered, restless.
What they love: They love freedom, for themselves and others. They like seeing others expressing freedom or breaking out of being boxed in. They love to be in charge, especially if they think they are carving a new path through the jungle. They love most things that are egalitarian.
