I've been roaming around the country lots since joining SP in 2008. I started out in PA, then moved to VA, then to FL and MA, and now to Hawaii. My husband's job keeps us moving, but I love it. Its how I grew up as a navy brat, its all I know.

Moving to HI was a stressful time - I immediately had surgery to remove my thyroid (suspected cancerous nodules but turned out benign) and my oldest started college in PA 5000 miles away from home. I continue to struggle with weight during our time here.

Last October we found out that my husband will be retiring after 20+ years in the military. We are stressing about his having to job search from our remote location in HI. Our DD has decided to graduate a year early and plans a gap year for next year. Our oldest is graduating from college next June.

Many changes on the horizon for our family but I'm going to start our new civilian life in a healthy frame of mind and body!

    Those born on the cusp of Sagittarius/Capricorn will shape the future. They have an innate talent for sensing the way things should go and bringing them to fruition. They begin preparing themselves early for what life may bring. Their motto is "Always be prepared." Not the most patient person on the block, they certainly appreciate those who agree with their plans. If they don't find the cooperation they need, they will forge on ahead on their own with no problem.

    Sagittarius-Capricorn understands the power in silence. They have the ability to utilize this to help their cause. Unless they exercise caution, they may find themselves alienating those they work or live with.
    Sagittarius-Capricorn needs to temper their intensity. This will allow them to control their moods rather than letting their moods control them. They need to focus on building and maintaining social relationships. If they are not careful, they will close themselves off.
    Sagittarius-Capricorn is practical and optimistic. They are 0utgoing, and can be very friendly. Responsible and reliable, they are good to have at your side in a pinch. They like things to work in traditional ways. They have a great sense of humor. They like one-on-one competitions. They are devoted to their partners, and great fun to be around. They like to explore new things, and want to experience as many things as they can. Hard working, they are not easily deterred from their goals.
    The Cusp of Prophecy is known to be trustworthy, self-reliant, loyal, ambitious, charming, practical, economical, shrewd, fun, responsible, warm, funny, optimistic, romantic, playful, and enthusiastic. They can also be blunt, impulsive, vain, aggressive and quick-tempered.
    Individuals born on the Sagittarius-Capricorn cusp are inspired teachers, and they are very fond of children. They make astute observations, and make excellent critics, being just and fair. While they don't fall in love easily, once they do they are faithful to the end. They give their best and expect the best in return. Methodical and efficient, they complete every task to the best of their ability. They like to travel and have an affinity to language.
    Sagittarius-Capricorn is a great thinker, and sometimes is gifted with prophecy to some degree. When these two signs work together in harmony, they have an unparalleled ability to create successful ideas and bring them to fruition. They have the determination to overcome whatever frustrations or obstacles as may arise along the way. If you really want to succeed, hitch your wagon to a Sagittarius/Capricorn Cusp to help you achieve your goal.
