Since the conventional zodiac signs hog all the limelight, very little is said about cusp signs. Not only are people on the cusp ignored, they are made to feel utterly inconsequential when it comes to matters of the stars.
If you too feel like you belong to some other zodiac sign, chances are that you are born on the cusp. Since we're not one to ignore the minority, namely, the cuspers, here's what your cusp sign is called and all its major characteristics:
1. Aries-Taurus Cusp Of Power (April 19 - April 20)
People born on this cusp have the best of both worlds. With leadership qualities of the Aries and the strong-headedness of the bull, these folks are born leaders. They're not the sayers, but the doers. If they have a plan, they'll execute it in the best possible way. A little stubborn, they have a tendency to get a riled up if things don't go their way.
2. Taurus-Gemini Cusp Of Energy (May 17 - May 23)
They are the epitome of liveliness. People born on this cusp have an infectious energy, but they also have a practical side. They love to talk and they fit in perfectly to new situations and with new people. However, their chattiness can be misconstrued as rudeness.
3. Gemini-Cancer Cusp Of Magic (June 19 - June 23)
Magical is usually the word used to describe the individuals who're born on this cusp sign. They are the best in almost everything. They are the life of a party, and they're also the ones who'll clean up the mess afterwards. They're loving, caring and extremely devoted. However, when they don't have that special someone in their life, they can get overwhelmingly upset.
4. Cancer-Leo Cusp Of Oscillation (July 19 - July 24)
Rightly named, people born on this cusp have a hard time deciding what to feel. Because unfortunately, they feel every emotion in the most intense way. If one minute they're ecstatic, the next minute they'll be flustered about something. For them, keeping their mood in check is a herculean task. But everything said and done, the oscillators are loving and caring people.
5. Leo-Virgo Cusp Of Exposure (August 19 - August 25)
With Leo and Virgo being completely opposite signs - like the cusp of oscillation - they can have a hard time dealing with their emotions. But when they're passionate about something, they'll give it their all. They're industrious folks, but they do have an element of secrecy which makes other people wary of them.
6. Virgo-Libra Cusp Of Beauty (September 19 - September 25)
Everything beautiful, be it people or things, attracts them. They easily lose themselves into the appeal of a certain something that they fancy. But with Virgo's practicality, they somehow manage to keep their sanity. They're an observant lot with a charismatic personality. So if you find yourself being drawn to one, just give in.
7. Libra-Scorpio Cusp Of Drama & Criticism (October 19 - October 25)
They are sexual, intelligent and powerful. And so much that other people can find it hard to handle a cusper of this sign. They have an intense drive and can prove to be great leaders once they learn how to make peace with their flaws. The people on this cusp just need to let themselves breathe a little.
8. Scorpio-Sagittarius Cusp Of Revolution (November 19 - November 25)
Rebels at heart, they go guns blazing when things fall apart. They're unconventional, erratic, some may even say, fearless. But against popular notions, they do have an insane sense of humour. They're non-judgmental which makes them privy to many a conversation. However, they're unforgiving when it comes to other people's shortcomings and mistakes.
9. Sagittarius-Capricorn Cusp Of Prophecy (December 21 - December 23)
They're both enterprising and practical. If they set out a goal, they have a whole plan in place to achieve it. However, the patience to see things through is something they lack. And that's why sometimes their elaborate plans don't work out. With a little patience and perseverance, they can be very successful.
10. Capricorn-Aquarius Cusp Of Mystery & Imagination (January 15 - January 24)
This cusp sign struggles to retain the best from each sign. People born on this cusp are both outgoing and traditional. They are eccentric but at the same time, they want the most conventional things. They like being free and independent, but they also crave a certain amount of groundedness.
11. Aquarius-Pisces Cusp Of Sensitivity (February 18 - February 22)
They're highly intelligent beings, they're compassionate and creativity runs in their blood. But they're also very deep thinkers and sometimes they tend to get lost in their daydreams. While they dream big, they lack the nerve to see things through. Even in relationships, they might be the most romantic ones, but at the sign of danger, they will run.
12. Pisces-Aries Cusp Of Rebirth (March 19 to March 26)
They are the perfect balance between the dreamers and the go-getters. They know what they want from life and with a little bit of hard work, they know how to get it as well. But this sign has a slight tendency to believe they're always right. This quality puts some people off. But all in all, they make for great, though slightly unconventional, leaders.
So, which cusp do you belong to?
