15 Apr The 12 Zodiac Cusps in Astrology
Zodiac cusps in astrology means that some sun signs were born on a border. And just like Geminis, these people tend to have two different zodiac sign traits within their single horoscope personalities.
That’s also one of the main reasons some people might feel like hard descriptions of their zodiac signs do not describe them to the fullest. With that in mind, let us skip to the main section of the post and look at what they are and how they affect us.
What are zodiac cusps in astrology?
In simple terms, it’s when someone is born on the cusp – AKA the borderline between two different sun signs. As a rule of thumb, if your birthdate falls between the 18th and 24th of any month, then you’re one of such individuals.
This is caused by fact that the Sun moves from one zodiac sign into the next during the 3rd week of each month: but the exact date and time slightly varies from one year to the next.
In addition to that, most books on astrology do not have sufficient pages to include all this information, so most of them will just list approximate times and dates. But this has its downsides, as it leads to confusion among avid followers of astrology.
For instance, a person born on 23rd of August may wonder, “should I identify as a Virgo or a Leo?” since they’ve probably seen publications listing them as both.
Worse yet, most astrologers don’t seem to come to an agreement. Some of them believe that people born during cusps are a blend of two signs, whereas others insist that you are either one or the other.
In truth, however, expert astrologers believe that each one of us has one sun sign – mainly because the sun moves into a new sign at an exact moment every month. And fortunately, we can even settle this matter if you know the exact time you were born.
If you do, then you can quickly find out your official sign by clicking on this link to a website that will allow you to run a free natal chart tailored to you.
If you’re not sure of the time you were born, then you may need to dig up a copy of your birth certificate or call your mom. And if both are not an option at the moment and you were born in the US, then you can simply contact the Division of Vital Statistics to get a copy of your birth certificate mailed to you.
