So what’s your sign?  Are you a Gemini, Pisces, Libra, or were you born on the CUSP?  

You probably know your zodiac sign— also known as your “Sun sign” because it’s the position the Sun was in at the time of your birth. When you’re looking up your horoscope, you probably know which sign you’re looking for the moment you pick up the daily paper. But this sign may not be true to your nature, and the horoscope may not be very accurate for you.

Did you know that your Sun sign may not be the only influence in your life? Some people are born very close to the time when Sun signs are about to change, and can be influenced by more than one sign.

What Is the Cusp?

The cusp is when a Sun sign is in the last 5 degrees as it exits, or the first 5 degrees as it enters. This works out to be somewhere between last 5 days of one Sun sign and the first 5 days of another Sun sign. The Sun actually straddles both signs, briefly, at one time.

How Does Being Born on the Cusp Affect My Life?

The Sun sign generally influences your basic personality; it’s your ego, the self you present to the world that most people know. Being born on the cusp of two signs means you have influence from the two different Sun signs.

How influential each sign may be depends on the actual time and place you were born. The closer you are to the moment of the transition, the more balanced the influence the two different signs will be. The further you were born from the moment of transition, the more one sign will be dominant than the other.  For instance, if you were born on March 19th or 20th, you are probably pretty balanced as a Pisces/Aries. If you were born on March 16th, you are a Pisces who will have definite Aries undercurrents. If you are born on March 26th, you’re an Aries with some Piscean traits.

If you’re born on the cusp, this is why descriptions of only one sign have probably never sounded completely accurate to you. It’s why you’ve always seemed a little different from other people who share your Sun sign. Any general horoscopes you read are always going to be slightly off. To make sense of yourself, you would have to look to both signs.

It’s always important to consult with astrologers who take the cusp into consideration in your chart. This means the chart they’re creating is specific to your time and date of birth, along with your location, and they should be able to show you the different influences of the two Sun signs under which you were born.
