What Is Considered The Cusp In Astrology? Susan Taylor Explains

Astrology is able to solve many mysteries, but it also raises many questions, like what does it mean if you were born on the cusp? In simple terms, this term refers to those of you who were born as the zodiac signs were changing, for example from Aries to Taurus. In other words, this period corresponds to the time when one sign rises and the other sets. This scenario creates makes for an interesting personality, because these natives are said to be blessed with the energies from both signs. It's fair to say that certain combinations of energy are definite recipes for whirlwinds!

What is a cusp in astrology?

The cusp is the time were the sun moves from one sign to another in a birth chart. There are millions of people in this conflictual case. Let’s take the example of people born on December 21st. The million-dollar question that arises from this particular example is; are you then a Sagittarius or Capricorn?

The changing of signs are very sensitive days when the energy rapidly passes from one sign to another. On these days the two zodiac signs transcend to reach their infinite power. If this is the case for you, then your energy is a mixture of the two influences, which could mean it's hard for you to relate to just one. So, when you read about your qualities, flaws and even compatible matches, you should always read the predictions for both signs.

Cusps

In a birth chart, the cusp corresponds to a boundary line between two signs of the zodiac.

Do cuspid individuals therefore have original personalities?

In addition to the passage from one sign to the next, the cusp marks the passage from one house to another. For astrologers, the signs are to heaven what the houses are to Earth. The process of domifying thus makes it possible to understand how a person functions, whether in relation to others, work, love... Each house has its own specificities, as shown in the sky and earth chart below.

In the same way that these folks shares the characteristics of the two signs of the zodiac that frame it, it also combines the aspects of the two adjacent houses. People born in a cusp are special for this reason. But the best way to find out which sign influences your personality is to analyze your natal chart.

Aries Taurus: Strong-willed

The energy of the fire blends with the magic of the earth and the result is a majestic volcano. Those born during these days like to control every aspect of their lives. They are very stubborn, but they are also bold and brave. Their heart is their compass, and they can become great leaders once they start listening to others.

Taurus Gemini: Smart thinkers

Taurus is one of the most rational signs and if this energy is combined with the brilliant Gemini, the results are surprising. The earthly filter of Taurus receives a boost of energy from Gemini, and their intellectual capacity makes them a force to be reckoned with.

Gemini Cancer: Powerful

If you were born during these days, you were born on the summer solstice! The powers of the solstice are so great that they can transcend the energy of the cusp even more. It is the day when the sun blends with the knowledge of Gemini and melts into the primordial waters of enlightenment, the waters of Cancer. 

Cancer Leo: Seductive

When the emotional tides of Cancer meet the radiant Leo sun, something magical happens! Those born under this influence have a unique ability to charm people. Zodiac

Leo Virgo: World changers

The brightest energy and inspiration of the Sun in Leo responds to the extreme abilities of Virgo. They also make excellent leaders because they have common sense. They just have to make sure that they try not to pass harsh judgment on others and on themselves.

Virgo Libra: Pure souls

This is no ordinary cusp; this is the time of the Autumn Equinox; the absolute equilibrium. People born under this influence are perfectionists and like to spoil themselves and their loved ones in peace and beauty. As long as these people find their emotional balance, they can attract anything they desire.

Libra Scorpio: Caring

When the natural curiosity of Libra meets the passion for truth of Scorpio, a seeker is born. They can work very hard to find out what they seek, and they always find the way to reach their goals. Their obsession can become truly creative if they find a way to balance it with love and affection.

Scorpio Sagittarius: High achievers

The passions and instincts of Scorpio meet the spiritual and playful nature of Sagittarius. Their unique powers make them capable of performing tasks that others consider impossible. Practical but emotional, they can achieve their goals as long as they keep a balance between what they want and what they really need.

Astrology chart

Sagittarius Capricorn: Big thinkers

It is the time of the winter solstice; these days are known as the Awakened Ones. The sun gives people born under this influence a unique capacity for cosmic consciousness. Practical and visionary, they can see what others cannot see, and they have the courage to follow their dreams. They never give up, no matter if they fail, they always believe in themselves.

Capricorn Aquarius: Ultimate determination

If you were born under this influence, you are able to find the solution you want, provided you have a motive. Extremely intelligent and decisive, these individuals can push all the limits to find what makes them better. For them, there is only one option, to win. They are stubborn and true to their beliefs. 

Aquarius Pisces: Creative thinkers

Aquarius is a sign imbued with wisdom, and when mixed with the empathic abilities of Pisces, it gives life to creativity. The key is to find a way to express their insecurities constructively. If they succeed, nothing can stop them.

Pisces Aries: Big dreamers

This is the cusp of the prophets. Whether they realize it or not, everything in their heads can be materialized. Not only is their intuition strong, and they can see the future, but they can also realize their dreams, or the dreams of others, as long as they keep hope.
