Cusps.

Postby megsy » Sat May 18, 2013 7:44 pm

In astrology, a cusp (from the Latin for spear or point) is the imaginary line that separates a sign in the zodiac or a house in the horoscope.

If an individual was born when the Sun was located at 29 degrees, 50 minutes Gemini, for example, then he might say that he was born on the cusp of Cancer. The reason for this is there are no lines in the sky and therefore the exact point where Gemini ends and Cancer begins can at times be a bit fuzzy. Heavenly bodies located on the cusp of a sign, therefore, are said to possess the attributes of both the sign it is leaving and the sign it is entering.

This is why sometimes you may appear as one sign in some magazines etc and sometimes a different one in others.

My birthday is the 19th February - sometimes I am Aquarius, sometimes Pisces. Although, I believe my personality is truely Aquarius most of the time, I do however show traits of Pisces.
