Most of us know our astrological sign. After all, we can only have one Sun sign.
However, if you were born a few days from the sun’s movement from one astrological sign to the next, you are considered to be ‘on the cusp,’ and this has special meaning for you from an astrological perspective.
Capricorn-Aquarius (between 1/16-1/22) – The Cusp of Mystery & Imagination
What happens when you combine the energies of capable Capricorn and quirky Aquarius? You get highly unique individuals, that’s what. If you were born between about January 16 and January 23, you were born on The Cusp of Mystery and Imagination, and there’s never a dull moment.
Whether outwardly flamboyant or shy and quiet, Capricorn-Aquarius cuspers always have much excitement going on internally. They have vivid dreams and rich fantasies that need to be expressed creatively if they’re to be happy.
Prone to leading unusual lives, “Capriquarians” often struggle to balance the two very different sides of their personalities — they are reserved yet social, security-craving but independent, and traditional yet offbeat.
Capricorn-Aquarius cuspers love to talk and entertain, and they especially enjoy intellectually stimulating conversations about any manner of strange topics. This is why no matter how hard they work or how dedicated they are to achieving their goals, things are never dull.
While hard-work and high standards bring these cuspers much success in most career endeavors, they can have more difficulty maintaining personal relationships. This is perhaps due to a need for independence, and a tendency to seem aloof and critical — sometimes even selfish. However, if they can put forth the loyal, funny and friendly sides of themselves they’ll make fast friends.
Aquarius-Pisces (2/15-2/21) – The Cusp of Sensitivity
Wondering what happens when your birth chart combines the energy of quirky Aquarius with dreamy Pisces? If you were born on the cusp of these two horoscopes signs, between about February 15-21, you were born on The Cusp of Sensitivity — a compassionate and imaginative place.
Spiritual, artistic, peace-loving and friendly, Aquarius-Pisces cuspers are highly original people. This is the cusp most likely to be labeled “offbeat” or “eccentric,” and its citizens are stimulated by visionary ideas and new experiences. They are highly intellectual, however not so good with practical details and follow-through.
These cuspers may be social or shy, or they may be a peculiar mix of both. This is because pending time with others is a great stress relief, but at the same time they are so sensitive they often choose to hide out alone and escape into their imaginations instead.
Aquarius-Pisces is also arguably the most intuitive cusp placement, lending a naturally psychic and compassionate view of the world. Delving into spiritual matters and philosophical ideals is much more important to these folks than simply managing the details of day-to-day life.
For this reason they may lose things, forget appointments, show up late or stand you up. But don’t be mad — it’s only because they were too preoccupied thinking about how make the world a better place on a much deeper level
Pisces-Aries (3/17-3/23) – The Cusp of Rebirth
If your birth chart combines energies from the dreamy, imaginative sign of Pisces and go-getter Aries, chances are you know what you want — and you want it now.
Those born on the Pisces-Aries cusp, which falls between about March 17 to March 23, are an intriguing mix of fiery impulsiveness and imaginative daydreaming, which is actually pretty excellent because it means they’re both dreamers AND doers.
A bit impatient and very direct, “Pisaries” peeps can sometimes rub others the wrong way by refusing to compromise. Why compromise when you are always right, they wonder? But at the same time this does make them great leaders.
Because they combine a certain fearlessness with compassion for others, these cuspers have a natural ability to push limits and bring others along with them toward success. It’s all about generating new ideas, working hard to put them in effect and then playing hard to reduce the stress.
If those born on this cusp can just work a little harder on their social skills and try to cultivate patience, their lives will be much easier. In fact, when they can balance the two sides of their personalities they work well together — Pisces can temper Aries hasty moves, while Aries can make Pisces’ dreams a reality.
Aries-Taurus (4/16-4/22) – The Cusp of Power
Watch out world, here comes the almighty Aries-Taurus cusper! If you were born on the cusp between Aries and Taurus, between about April 17 to April 22, you were born on The Cusp of Power and you are indeed a force to be reckoned with.
Authoritative and bold, people born on the Aries-Taurus cusp are natural born leaders. They’ll take charge at work or at home, and the two signs’ energies mix well for success — impulsive Aries lends energy and pushes forward toward goals, while practical Taurus takes care of all the details.
One area to watch is that of being too forceful, and barreling right over the opinions and desires of others. Those born on the Aries-Taurus cusp can’t stand to watch others do things the know darn right they could do better themselves.
How do they know that? Because they’re quite opinionated! This isn’t always a bad thing, it’s just important to find balance, tone down all those aggressive winning instincts and learn to better respect the feelings of others.
Then the funny, helpful, strong and dependable side to the Aries-Taurus cusp will shine in its own powerful light.
