Were You Born "On the Cusp?"
Ever had a friend born on the cusp? It means their birthday falls close to when the Sun was departing one sign and giving place to another sign while still carrying energy leftover from the sign they're leaving. Folks born on the cusp sometimes feel like their Sun sign doesn’t really fit and for some people, that sounds kind of odd and it just doesn’t make a lot of sense!
The 12 zodiac signs were named after constellations of fixed stars and are divided into 30 degrees each. The complete zodiac creates a full circle of 360°. Let’s say you were born within five-to-six days of when the Sun was moving from one sign to another. In Astrology, that means you were born “on the cusp.” As a result, you may experience the influence of both signs in your personality.
This dual influence could be positive or not so much so, depending on the harmonious and inharmonious qualities of both signs. In Astrology, it is said that when the Sun is transitioning from one sign to another, it takes five-to-six days to establish full residence and gain all the characteristics of that particular Sun sign.
Remember that your Sun sign is determined by the exact location of the Sun in the 360° zodiac at the moment of your birth. Your Sun sign determines your personality and inner makeup. We all have only one Sun sign; a Scorpio is always a Scorpio. But what does it mean when a Scorpio is born on the Scorpio-Libra cusp? It means that the intuitive, intense, Scorpio will gain some of the amazing sensual energy from Libra and open their hearts to help find their better half.
The best way to know which one is your "true" Sun sign is having an astrological birth chart done with your exact date, time, and place of your birth. Anyone born on the cusp will have a little influence of both signs; but most of the makeup will be from their true Sun sign.
