The “cusp” in astrology means being born between two pivotal points that involve two neighboring signs. Though you can only have one Sun sign, you may find that you're more influenced by the traits of the neighboring sign than others who fall more toward the middle of each sign.

For example, someone born on the cusp of Aquarius and Pisces, or the Cusp of Sensitivity, will be between 26 degrees of Aquarius and 3 degrees of Pisces. Aquarius season starts around January 20th and lasts through February 18th, which is when Pisces season begins.

Those with birthdays falling on the cusp are born between February 14th and February 20th.

This is the cusp of artistry, love, and rebellion. Aquarius is co-ruled by Saturn and Uranus while dreamy Pisces is co-ruled by Jupiter and Neptune. The mix of planets empowers the native to be fearless with their self-expression. They are also inspired by the magic that is created through their imagination. They develop trust with their intuition, so kickstarting things for them comes easier, especially when they have a strong Mars and Saturnian influence.
