When asked their astrological sign, many people will tell
you that they were "born on the cusp." In terms of the stars, this means that
they were born as the sun was exiting one astrological mansion and entering
another. And here's what it means in your life:
Aries–Taurus: April 17th–April 22nd
If you were born on the Aries–Taurus cusp, you have lots of
energy to get things done. Your Aries fire has an endless drive to build
whatever you desire, while your Taurus earth has lots of desires for material
security. The sensuous Taurus feels everything
strongly, while the Aries fire generates a burning passion for food, comfort,
human connection, and pleasure. Be aware that sometimes passion can become
aggression in the bull/ram mix.
Taurus–Gemini: May 17th–May 23rd
If you were born of the Taurus–Gemini cusp, it's likely you're
the life of the party. You've got Taurus's love of food, wine, and pleasure-seeking,
combined with Gemini's desire to socialize and connect with people. Everyone
loves you and you love everyone, simply because it feels good. Addiction could
be something to watch if you land in this cusp. If you aren't mindful, you're
likely to enjoy too much of a good thing.
Gemini–Cancer: June 17th –June 23rd
Those born in the Gemini–Cancer cusp have access to great
mental power and heart power. This is where the mind and the heart live in
happy communion, making for a very magical person. You are brilliant. Your
friends love you, and your family feels nurtured and seen by you. Cancer's
heartfelt emotions and Gemini's intellect will serve to keep you at the head of
your game. Be mindful to give yourself space to decompress when needed. You
must take care of yourself first if you will be of service to others.
Cancer–Leo: July 19th–July 25th
This might prove to be a challenging cusp combination,
because Cancer and Leo are really different in most ways. Cancer is inward and
nurturing, while Leo is dramatic and seeks attention from outward influences.
Self-awareness is the gift here. Learning to nurture yourself will be the
source of your freedom. When your emotions spiral, which they will, learn to
create tools that make you feel seen and cared for.
Leo–Virgo: August 19th–August 25th
This cusp offers lots of personality choices. The Virgo
energy is reserved, structured, and contained, while Leo is dramatic and
outward focused. Virgo is earth and Leo is fire, which will consume the other.
Regardless of where you land along this spectrum, the benefit to you will be
your work ethic. Work is an undeniable joy for those born in this cusp and
success should certainly follow in any field you choose.
Virgo–Libra: September 19th–September 25th
The Virgo-Libra cusp is a beautiful mix of air and earth
that blends beauty, order, communication, and relationship. If you were born on
one of these days, you add beauty to every environment. You're very well
groomed and usually fashion forward. Your most exceptional trait is your sharp
mind—you are a deep thinker who can hold thoughtful conversations.
Libra–Scorpio: October 19th–October 25th
This is a powerful cusp that blends Venus and Pluto, melding
heart and sex. If you are a Libra–Scorpio blend, you're a force to be
reckoned with, as you can make anything happen. You are both a great leader and
a fantastic romancers.
Scorpio–Sagittarius: November 19th–November
The mix of Scorpio intensity and Sagittarian boldness can
create a very powerful individual. If you're a Scorpio–Sagittarius combination, you carry
a great deal of power, allowing you influence and success, if you can channel
it positively. Sagittarian energy reaches into the group consciousness to find
solutions while Scorpio can get things done—you're someone who can make changes
for the good.
Sagittarian–Capricorn: December 18th–December
The mix of the Sagittarian's optimism and the Capricorn's
practicality can be a tremendous balance for those born under this influence.
The former's energy believes in the goodness in all things while the latter will
work day and night to achieve desired goals. If you're born in this cusp, be
careful to find the balance between your pragmatic side and your idealistic
one. If you don't, you might find your emotions swing between very low lows and
very high highs.
Capricorn–Aquarius: January 17th–January
The grounded Capricorn mixed with the whimsical and
rebellious Aquarius could make for an eternal inner war. While Capricorn is
deeply dedicated and hard working, the Aquarian requires freedom and causes
that drive her passion. If this is where you fall on the astrological spectrum,
you're talkative, hard working, and highly entertaining.
Aquarius–Pisces: February 15th–February
Those born under this influence likely started the free
love, no-war and peace movements. Freedom mixed with dreams makes it difficult
for those born here to stay grounded. If this is the cusp under which you were
born, you simply don't dwell in concrete realities and that makes you highly
creative, spiritual, and mystical, offering an energy exuding love and peace.
Pisces–Aries: March 17th–March
The combination of dreaminess and "make it happen" energies
means you have exactly what it takes to make the world better for everyone.
Pisces' compassion and Aries' drive to get what you desire now is an
unstoppable combination and a beauty to behold. While Aries can be self-focused,
the Pisces' energy blends with all it encounters, creating a machine that
brings everyone along for the ride to success.
