The “cusp” in astrology means being born between two pivotal points that involve two neighboring signs. While 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 Sagittarius-Capricorn cusp, called the 'Cusp of Prophecy,' will be between 26 degrees of Sagittarius and 3 degrees of Capricorn. Sagittarius season starts around November 22nd and lasts through December 21st, which is when Capricorn season begins.
