What Does Born on the Cusp Mean? 

Being born on the cusp is when you’re born on or near the star sign change. It’s a boundary between one zodiac sign and the next sign. Their birthday falls between the sun leaving one zodiac sign and entering another. 

One example is being born on the cusp between Pisces and Aries. While Aries can be known for starting but not finishing a task, those born on the cusp can be better about finishing something they started and have more Pisces traits. The person will have traits from both signs. 

1. Taurus-Gemini (May 20 to May 21)

When someone is born between Taurus and Gemini they will tend to be stable but with an added curiosity of intelligence. You’re more friendly with strangers as well. This person enjoys conversations with strangers more than a traditional Taurus. 

If you fall more on the Gemini side, you’re more likely to be curious about practical concerns instead of intellectual concerns. 

2. Aries-Taurus Cusp (April 19 to April 20)

Those more on the cusp toward the Aries side, are more than likely better at completing tasks than a regular ram. Those born closer to the Taurus side may seem more accident-prone and stubborn. 

3. Cancer-Leo (July 22 to July 23)

If your birthday is more on the Cancer side, you’re more outgoing and want to share your creativity with others. If it’s more on the Leo side, you’re probably more shy than other Leos and more in touch with your creative side. 

4. Gemini-Cancer (June 20 to June 21)

Those born between Gemini and Cancer tend to be caring, fun, and devoted. They’re inspiring for others and often the center of attention. They’re still romantic, private, and empathetic, which is hidden from others. They like to be surrounded by people they trust. 

5. Leo-Virgo (August 22 to August 23)

These two signs are very different, so together it’s perfectionism and passion combining. This can cause conflict for those born between these dates, such as their persuasive, activist, and conflicted traits. It’s essentially a war between extroverts and introverts. 

6. Virgo-Libra (September 22 to September 23)

This pairing causes an artistic and intelligent person. Libras tend to be all about beauty, and those who are born between Virgo and Libra are as well. They’re known as being kind, intelligent, creative, and charismatic. 

They can also be too focused on how things appear and look from the outside. They tend to be the nurturing ones, looking out for others. 

7. Libra-Scorpio (October 22 to October 23)

These two signs combined tend to be very driven, intelligent, and passionate. They always speak the truth which can be both good and bad. They can be critical but charismatic. They can be jealous in relationships but very loyal and romantic. 

8. Scorpio-Sagittarius (November 21 to November 22)

If you’re born closer to the Scorpio side, you can be more optimistic about the future. You’re known to make the best of a situation. If you’re closer to the Sagittarius side, you’re more likely to appear to have a brighter outlook on life. 

You’re more aware of what’s going on with people though and that no one is perfect. 

9. Sagittarius-Capricorn (December 21 to December 22)

Those born more toward the Sagittarius side, you enjoy but freedom but you’re more controlled by a responsible and stable life. More on the Capricorn side, you’ll look for a career that gives you a promising future and that lets you make the world better. 

This combination is more controlled by fulfillment than power. 

10. Capricorn-Aquarius (January 19 to January 20)

A Capricorn-Aquarius combination leads to a very unique person. They’re never boring since they’re vivid dreamers. Whatever they might show to the public, their private life is what matters to them most. 

They can tend to be disappointed with reality since they have such vivid dreams and fantasies. It’s hard to be with someone who dreams of something better. They are great at communicating though. They can be quite critical as well. 

11. Aquarius-Pisces (February 18 to February 19)

You’re more intuitive than the regular Aquarius. You can visualize your dreams and intuitions. You tend to be more detached than the regular Pisces. They tend to be compassionate and understanding of others. They can also be more extroverted than you’d think. 

They enjoy being around others and are goal-oriented, but are procrastinators. 

12. Pisces-Aries (March 21 to March 22)

When these 2 signs combine it forms impulsive but creative people. They can picture what they want and make it happen. They make effective leads thanks to being sensitive and empathetic. 

They’re not afraid to take action or bring others along on their adventures in life. They tend to overthink and this leads to impulsiveness. They like to push boundaries which can lead to misunderstandings and hurt feelings. 

Even if this happens though they’re great at making others feel comfortable. They’ll be extremely supportive and encourage you but their passion doesn’t always equal commitment.
