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 Aries-Taurus cusp, or the Cusp of Power, will be between 26 degrees of Aries and 3 degrees of Taurus. Aries season starts around March 21st and lasts through April 19th, which is when Taurus season begins.

If your birthday falls under this cusp, you are a pioneer, courageous, romantic, generous, and unique. There is an immense power between the signs of Aries and Taurus. Anyone born under this cusp will be known for their need to persevere.

While they have many positive traits, they could also be possessive, hold grudges, and be fixed in their ways. They do not hold back, are not afraid of challenges, and are prepared to take control when necessary.

The native born under this cusp should learn to take pride in their talents early on so they can flourish and develop more self-love as they get older.

Aries-Taurus cusp traits

1. Pioneering

It is not a secret that Aries and Taurus are both pioneering and industrious signs. Being born under this cusp shows someone that is the first at creating or initiating. Their ideas are vibrant and unique.

Understanding how to become more confident in their abilities and taking the initiative to show others may be a challenge early on, but can help them become more self-assured as they age. Once they appreciate their talent, they can become groundbreaking leaders in any industry they work in.

2. Courageous

Mars-ruled Aries is fearless. Those born under this cusp display the same intensity associated with both signs. They do not back down and will always fight for their dreams.

While Aries might want to rush to get things done, Taurus knows that slow and steady wins the race. Those born under this cusp are patient, and detail-oriented, and will not be as impulsive. Because they know their limits, they will rather play it safe and wait.

Nevertheless, their courageous side is ignited when they need to protect the ones they love. If they also need to show others in school or work that they are indeed the ones for the job, the native will prove they are strong enough to weather any challenge.
