We all know our sun signs and how they influence us but if you were born on a cusp or close to the beginning dates of sign change, you may find heavy influence from that other sign as well. While you may technically be one sign, you don’t quite fit into that one as well as you think you should and there’s nothing wrong with that.

If you feel like your horoscope is always wrong or as if nothing ever sounds as it should for you in the astrological world, it could have to do with your cusp and the influence you’re facing. No, you don’t have two signs but you could have some influences coming forth from one sign that you were not expecting which is throwing things off. The more aware you are of this the more you can work to figure out where your influences are coming from and how to read yourself more properly.

The cusp dates are as follows according to



PISCES-ARIES CUSP: 3/17 – 3/23

ARIES-TAURUS CUSP: 4/16 – 4/22



CANCER-LEO CUSP: 7/19 – 7/25

LEO-VIRGO CUSP: 8/19 – 8/25

VIRGO-LIBRA CUSP: 9/19 – 9/25

LIBRA-SCORPIO CUSP: 10/19 – 10/25

You may end up learning a lot more about yourself than you initially expect.

If you’re born on the cusp, you might find that you possess personality traits from your neighboring sign. For instance, people born under Aries, but on the Aries-Taurus cusp, often make great leaders. Normally, Aries impatient habits could have you making quick decisions and reacting too fast, but if you’re an Aries born on the cusp of Taurus, these traits might be softened with a more grounded, sensible Taurean energy. But this doesn’t mean that being a cusper is always sunshine and rainbows; the energies of your two signs may clash!

Either way, being born on the cusp can give you a variety of qualities that can blend and shine in different ways. Learning about both the blessings and the curses of your cusp helps you embrace your interesting — and sometimes complicated — self!
