Born on the Cancer-Leo Cusp

Swinging along with the Cusp of Oscillation

Are you up for a special challenge? Good! Because when sensitive Cancer energy hooks up with dramatic Leo in your birth chart, the result is a wildly swinging pendulum of extreme ups and extreme downs.

This doesn't have to be a bad thing, of course, but if you were born between about July 19 to July 25, you were born on the Cancer-Leo Cusp -- and you have some contrary elements in your birth chart that may take some extra discipline to overcome.

Born of a conflicting mix of water and fire, Cancer-Leo cuspers can be shy and sensitive one moment and gregarious drama queens the next. The danger here is that you might be either so sensitive or so insensitive that you'll come across as self-absorbed either way.

Life's greatest challenge for those born on the Cancer-Leo Cusp, then, is to find a comfortable middle ground between these extremes. To do so will take hard work and self-discipline, but it's doable with meditative activities like yoga or volunteering to help others so you don't become too focused on yourself.

The brighter side of this cosmic combination is that both Cancer and Leo are deeply loving and devoted horoscope signs, so Cancer-Leo cuspers will often form lasting relationships and have great big loving family lives.

my wife is a cancer leo cusper, me i'm fully cancerian - she is my rock - dam woman is a saint - i go off with the moon and end up being the high maintenance husband...but good old good old just keeps on keeping on....if that is what one gets when one crosses a cancerian with a leo - then i'm totally for that mix.

I was also born on July 24th. There is a bit of difference in your Horroscope and your personology. I learned I can be shy one minute, and then very dramatic the next. This is your personality. What may happen today or tomorrow, doesn't have much dwelling on your personality. The year you were born in concerns the Chinese Zodiac. This is the true you. I found out that True Love and jealousy can bring out the shyness and drama. Never felt the extreems, until I felt true Love.

Love it or hate it, it's almost time to head back to school -- and some horoscope signs definitely love it or hate it more than others.
