You probably know your astrology sign, but have you ever heard of a cusp sign? Could you possibly be one of these so called cusp signs? You are a cusp sign if you are born a couple of days from the sun’s journey from one zodiac sign to the next. Being born on these days means you are ‘on the cusp’ and share a combination of influences of two signs. Like regular zodiac signs there are twelve cusps signs as well, so chances are you might be one of these special cusp signs and not even know it!
Each cusp has an awesome name too which is based off of the dual influence from the combination of zodiac signs and it is said that each cusp embodies a special energy.
Bonus points! Comment below if you are one, and tell us if your description seems accurate. We’d love to know!
Aries - Taurus Cusp (April 17 - April 22) The Cusp of Power
This cusp has a seriously dominant personality which makes them very good leaders. This cusp is a combination for success and people born on this cusp tend to enjoy taking on many challenges. The energetic Aries pushes full throttle towards goals while the more grounded Taurus takes mention of all the important details. Quite the power duo. At times however, this sign can be a little too forceful and has the tendency to overwhelm themselves and others in the process. Use your natural born strategic skills to find a balance when it comes to achieving your goals so you can respect others in the process. You don’t have to be the leader all the time, Cusp of Power!
Taurus - Gemini Cusp (May 17 - May 23) The Cusp of Energy
This cusp is forever young at heart! People born on this cusp are go getters and are highly adaptable when it comes to new people and new places. Their natural born communication skills are definitely responsible for this. However, their love for talking and chatting doesn’t leave much room for other people to chime in. This can pose a problem for people feeling this cusp is insensitive to how they feel. The Cusp of Energy would benefit greatly if they could just sit back and listen more often to what others have to say.
Gemini - Cancer Cusp (June 19 - June 23) The Cusp of Magic
People born on this cusp are truly creative and dare I say ‘magical’ individuals. They can find the greatest inspiration for creation from the smallest of things. This cusp has a big heart and are extremely devoted and caring beings towards those they love. Empathy is this cusp’s middle name and they are very good at helping their loved ones get through difficult times. One problem with this sign’s big heart is that they tend to feel the overwhelming need to have a special someone in their life. Without someone to love, they tend to let their moodiness get the best of them and feel sad often. The Cusp of Magic should love themselves first as much as they feel the need to love others!
Cancer - Leo Cusp (July 19 - July 24 ) The Cusp of Oscillation
People born on this cusp can be a little confusing to understand. They are individuals who tend to swing from one extreme to the next, being totally shy at one moment then dying to be the center of attention the next. This is because they are a conflicting mix of water a sign and fire sign which takes a lot of work to balance. These cusps are a unique combination of spirited energy and emotional sensitivity. It is important for people born on this cusp to find a peaceful balance. The Cusp of Oscillation are devoted and loving people so they would benefit greatly and feel much happier by helping others instead of focusing on themselves constantly.
Leo - Virgo Cusp (August 19 - August 25) The Cusp of Exposure
This cusp will either be a total extrovert or a secretive introvert. There’s no telling which way this cusp will learn towards, but either way this cusp is hardworking and dedicated when they find something they are truly passionate about. Like the Cusp of Oscillation, it is important for the Cusp of Exposure to find a balance between leading a life of boldness and secrecy. This way they will learn to let people in and receive the recognition they truly desire. This cusp is prone to keeping secrets from themselves. This can be fixed if this cusp learns to share their emotions and experiences with others around them.
Virgo - Libra Cusp (September 19 - September 25) The Cusp of Beauty
People born on this cusp are attracted to all things that embody beauty, whether it be different forms of art or even other people. These individuals are very balanced by Virgo’s analytical skills and Libra’s social skills which in turn create a truly artistic and intelligent person. One problem this cusp could face is becoming too focused all things beautiful and consequently becoming too caught up with physical appearance and spending too much money on things they don’t need. This cusp would benefit greatly if they focused more on the non physical beauty of things and instead got in touch with their spiritual side.
Libra - Scorpio Cusp (October 19 - October 25) The Cusp of Drama and Criticism
This cusp has an intense personality that is almost impossible to ignore. In some cases, this cusp’s intellect, sexuality and ambition may be too much for others to handle. People born on this cusp are powerful and make great leaders. However, they can be a bit too critical and need everything to be perfect. Flaws drive them crazy and they will even find themselves embarrassed if they or something they presented is not aligned to their vision of perfection. The Cusp of Drama and Criticism needs to see the importance of letting themselves relax and put their inner critic to rest every once in awhile.
Scorpio - Sagittarius Cusp (November 19 - November 24) The Cusp Of Revolution
Rebel, rebel! People born on this cusp are fearless individuals and tend to be a little on the wild side, especially when they are at a young age. They are unafraid to charge ahead full throttle and go after what they’re passionate about which in turn can create a very successful individual. People who know these ‘cuspers’ appreciate their company due to their good humor and their tendencies to be open minded and nonjudgmental. These attributes make people born on this cusp well liked and popular. One thing this cusp could work on is taking other’s feelings into consideration more often and learning to forgive other’s mistakes when they make them.
Sagittarius - Capricorn Cusp (December 19 to December 24) The Cusp of Prophecy
People born on this cusp have the vision for seriously bright futures. They tend to know what they want early on in life and begin preparing for their futures at this time. Since preparation is key for these cuspers, it’s important for this cusp sign to learn how to balance the fast paced, desire driven side of Sagittarius and the slow and steady pace of Capricorn. However, the optimistic Sagittarius and the practical Capricorn are more often than not a recipe for success when it comes to achieving big life plans. The Cusp of Prophecy is hardworking, and they are not easily distracted from their goals. One thing this cusp sign could benefit from is not focusing entirely on the future but instead focusing more on relationships. They are so goal driven that they tend to cut people off in the process, and this cusp would be much happier with friends to share their experiences and stories with.
Capricorn - Aquarius Cusp (January 15 to January 22) The Cusp of Mystery and Imagination
There is never a dull moment with people born on this cusp. This cusp tends to get themselves in unusual situations with really no explanation as to why. Their dream world is very active and vivid and in turn serves as their inspiration they use in daily life. Due to the two very different combination of signs on their cusp, they often find themselves struggling to balance their conflicting sides. They are social but also aloof and traditional yet eccentric which makes them hard to understand. What this cusp would benefit greatly from is finding an outlet for their creativity which could help them communicate their unusual experiences with others. Finding someone who understands their unique creativity would make this cusp the happiest.
Aquarius - Pisces Cusp (February 18 to February 22) The Cusp of Sensitivity
This cusp is a very compassionate and imaginative place to be born on. People born on this cusp are highly original individuals. The Cusp of Sensitivity are very deep thinkers and tend to get lost in their own thoughts. They see the world very differently than others and are said to be natural born psychics. Despite sharing their unique differences with others, they have the tendencies to shut them away in order to not be ridiculed. These ‘cuspers’ should share their visionary ideas and unique personalities with others and not be afraid to be themselves!
Pisces - Aries Cusp (March 19 to March 26) The Cusp of Rebirth
People born on this cusp are a combination of the imaginative Pisces and the go-getter Aries. They dream big and know exactly what they want. If they balance the two sides of their personalities together, their Pisces side will balance Aries impulsiveness and their Aries side will strive to make their Pisces dream side a reality. One thing this cusp could benefit from is working better with others. This cusp has the tendency to believe they are always right, when it reality no one is which could cause issues with friendships. By working on their social skills and taking others opinions into consideration, they will lead a much happier and healthier life.
