Born on the Horoscope Cusp

Which horoscope sign is the real you?

The zodiac is neatly divided into 12 equal horoscope signs, each with its clearly defined characteristics. But meanings can get messy near the borders that separate the signs. These are known as cusps, those transition zones where a planet is moving from one horoscope sign to the next.

If, for example, you were born on March 18, the Sun was in Pisces, giving you the sensitive qualities of this Water sign. But with independent Aries just days away, that Piscean sweetness may be colored with some of the assertiveness of the following sign. You're definitely a Pisces. The boundaries are clearly defined, so you don't get two astrological passports, one for each sign. But like someone living near the border of another country, it's likely that you'll have familiarity with both languages and cultures.

The two-sign influence of a cusp is stronger when a planet is at the end of a sign than at the beginning. If you have Mars, the action planet, in the last degree of solid and steady Taurus, you'll probably feel the itchy feet of Gemini coming your way. But once Mars enters the sign of the Twins (or any other sign, for that matter) the past can be quickly forgotten. So even though a planet is technically on the cusp in the last three or first three degrees of a sign, the feeling of it having a double identity is much greater finishing one sign than starting another.

The importance of having any planet on the cusp of a sign also depends on the rest of your chart. If you're a 29-degree Cancer Sun and have two planets in Leo, the next sign, the proud Lion will roar more loudly in your life. Even if you don't have anything else in Leo, planets in other Fire signs (Leo's cousins Aries and Sagittarius) or a Fire sign Ascendant, you'll be more outgoing than the average Crab.

I was born july 24th at 12:31 am,,, i have been a dead on Leo almost everyweek but everyonce in a while i have a lot more in common with Cancer.. If im on the cusp does it affect my daily horoscope at all???
Cusp or no cusp doesn't effect your horoscope. When your born it effects your personology, and the type person you are. I was born on July 24th at 4:30 am. I am a Leo with influences of water and fire. This deals with mood sways. Happy and up beat one moment, and slightly depressed in the evening, maybe when this are not quite not our way, or attention isn't on us, because we like to be center stage.

Long distance relationships can be love's worst enemy. Yet in today's economy, long-distance love is more common than ever. Couples may be forced apart by job opportunities in separate cities, family obligations or unforseen circumstances that make temporary separations a necessary evil.  But they don't necessarily have to be evil. With enough trust, communication and hard work, couples can learn to make their romance thrive in spite of the miles between them. ... continued »
