The traditionalist and the progressive
Ok, let's be honest here. The Aquarius-from-Capricorn character may be less interesting (less colorful, less entertaining) than his star-siblings born later in the sign, but at least with a history of some common sense and a strong toehold still on Capricorn's sterling virtues of caution, self-discipline, organization, and method ... he's a lot easier to understand, a lot easier to get along with, a lot less likely to have strangers staring at the two of you when you're out together in public.
He still understands the value of "worldly trappings" ... like prestige, professional success, solid achievement, and a reliable reputation. He still has a nodding acquaintance with the kind of ambition society respects ... but he will have some very progressive ends toward which he is pointing his efforts, some undeniably high ideals about the kind of world he wants to help build for the future.

Born with the Sun in ...
* Born with the Sun in Capricorn -- The Capricorn Character ---> Reputation is everything! ---> If there's a party animal anywhere in your character, it comes from somewhere other than your Capricorn energy. The Capricorn part of you was born sober, and grown up, and knowing how to behave. That Capricorn part of you wouldn't tie one on or wear a silly paper hat at gunpoint. There's bound to be a camera somewhere in the room ... or a lurking reporter. Or the local gossip.
* Born with the Sun in Aquarius -- The Aquarius Character ---> The symbol of Aquarius is the water-carrier. ---> With a little help from your friends ---> Friends play a very special part in the life of an Aquarius. In fact, for you, they make life worth living -- because they help make your contributions to the rest of the world possible. A cluster of dependable friends are indispensable to the aims of Aquarius.
* Born with the Sun in ... Index -- The Sun Through All the Zodiac Signs ---> Born with the Sun in Aries ---> Aries is the Spring Fire Sign ---> Direct and to the point ---> Passion is never a problem for Aries. Nor is self-assertion. Nor is being downright pushy and tromping on toes if that gets a job done. Aries is long on initiative and ambition, notoriously short on tact -- and few will apologize for that.
Born on the Cusp
What does this mean?
* Born on the Cusp in Astrology -- The Technical Explanation ---> A cusp is an edge ---> A cusp, in architecture, physiology, dentistry ... and astrology, is a point where two things touch, intersect, or fit together -- one against the other. In astrology the point of the "cusp" is more abstract ... referring to the place in the continuum of the Zodiac or in a paper chart where a change occurs between one sign and the next or one house and the next.
* Were You Born on the Cusp? -- Examples all around the Zodiac ---> Pisces / Aries / Taurus ---> The self-sacrificing, mystical, artistic, and usually peace-loving Pisces-to-Aries person will sometimes be surprisingly temperamental, impatient, aggressive, and daring, with an unmistakable warrior energy camouflaged, as a rule, by the normally passive, spiritual qualities of her Pisces sign. The dynamic, forceful, audacious, candid, and often confrontational Aries-from-Pisces person ....
* What Does It Mean to be 'Born on the Cusp?' -- Bridging from one sign to the next ---> Don't get technical on me, ok? ---> Being "born on the cusp" to most people means a birthday (usually their own) falls on or about the 21st of the month. This is approximately the day the Sun changes from one sign to another in the Zodiac, although calendars and other human structures being what they are, even that causes confusion. Sometimes the date is the 19th; sometimes the 23rd.
