What It Means If Your Date Of Birth Falls On A 'Cusp' Between Zodiac Signs, According To Astrology
Zodiac, Self

In astrology, some zodiac signs are born on a cusp and just like a Gemini, you can have two individual zodiac sign traits within your single horoscope personality.

This is one of the reasons why a person may feel like the hard descriptions of their particular zodiac sign doesn't really describe them. This is called a zodiac cusp.

What is a zodiac cusp, you ask?

It's when a person is born on the cusp of two signs. For example, you can be born an Aquarius and yet carry significant Capricorn personality traits.

Zodiac cusp signs are unique individuals whose date of birth bring two distinct horoscopes together and create a new horoscope personality with blended astrology traits.

There can only be a cusp if both signs overlap during the day that they were born. For example, if a Sun is moving out of the zodiac sign Aquarius and into the 12th House where Pisces is located that person is 'born on a cusp' — the Aquarius/Pisces cusp.

For example, the zodiac signs Aquarius (January 20 - February 18) and Pisces (February 19 - March 20) overlap from February 15 through the 21st, causing a cusp.

This can be confusing, but it's not a bad thing. Possessing the strengths and weakness of two signs can be a blessing and a burden. You not only inherit the positives but the negatives too.

This opens a world of possibilities. Are you one of the select few who is in the group of zodiac signs born on the cusp?

If you were born between any of the following zodiac sign dates, then yes, you were born on a cusp, and here's what that means for your personality traits and horoscopes, according to astrology.

Capricorn Aquarius Cusp (January 16 - January 22)

If you were born between January 16 and January 22 then you are a Capricorn/Aquarius cusp.
