Born on the Gemini-Cancer Cusp

Shazam! Were you born on the Cusp of Magic?

When flirty Gemini energy meets sensitive Cancer in your birth chart, it inspires pure magic! If your birthday is between about June 17 and June 23, you were born on the magical Gemini-Cancer cusp and your life will be an inspiration to others.

Caring and devoted, those born on the Gemini-Cancer cusp infuse the world around them with lighthearted kindness, and are able to find inspiration in the ordinary -- then share what they’ve learned with others.The effect can be truly inspiring.

Emotions can run high for these individuals, so it’s very important to their happiness that they are able to share their lives with close family, friends and lovers.

Gemini-Cancer cuspers are typically quite affectionate and sensitive, and the one downside to this is if they have no one to devote themselves to. This could lead to depression and self-destructive behavior. But fortunately these cuspers have such magnetic personalities it's unlikely they'd find themselves alone for too long.

What's most magical about these individuals is their natural blend of speedy, ethereal Gemini energy and slower, caring Cancer, so you get a being who's at once light and bright, but also capable of deeper attachments. Moodiness can result at times, but for the most part it's a balance that doesn't just work -- it works magically!

I was born June 22nd and I'm one degree in Cancer, which is still influenced by the cusp of Gemini/Cancer. What is also a coincedence is that, at the time of my birth, mercury, venus and mars were all currently in Gemini. So i guess not only was i born in between a cusp, but I also have a double influence of Gemini in my chart.

Hello, Rising Phoenix!
I, too, am a Gemini-Cancer cusper and my Sun is at 29 degrees of Gemini, a tough placement. I love your Leo energy and what you have done with living with two sun signs, although I cannot tell if you have a Gemini/Cancer cusp, but guessing so, besides the ASC at 29 degrees. I would love to correspond with you and others with like astro snapshot. I am in Portland, OR and I would give Jeff the OK to give you my email address, if you are interested. I would love to see your art as well. Hoping to hear back from you.

Well jeff as usual you've hit it spot on with this description! This is the BEST Gem-Cancer cusp description I've seen. I'm an artist (many media & trained from early childhood) & all of my life my goal & desire has been to INSPIRE. I always thought my end-all & be-all would be to inspire others with my work... yet as life goes--& this is where you are absolutely spot on!--it appears that it is my LIFE, the things that have happened to me & the way I've creatively dealt with them & now share what I've learned that is the big inspiration!

Makes me wonder about "other" cusps-- do you (or does anyone here) have a call what being at 29 degrees of a sign at your ascendent is? Is that also a cusp-y energy?

My ascendent is 29 degrees-point-something Leo--with 2 of the big planets in Leo sitting right on top of it. & my 1st house also holds my Virgo Moon--as a Cancer--that makes me double (or more) Moon-ruled huh?
