ARIES-TAURUS CUSP PERSONALITY TRAITS
Those born from April 16 – April 22 fall under the Aries-Taurus Cusp also known as the “Cusp of Power”. The Aries-Taurus cusp is one of the most powerful cusps because those born during this period will be endowed with qualities from both Aries and Taurus resulting in a combination of great power, determination, stability and perseverance.
People born on the Cusp of Power are extremely passionate and powerful. A commonly used example of an Aries-Taurus cusp is Adolf Hitler.

He had an understanding of structures and procedures which were used to engineer his powerful Wehrmacht. Aries-Taurus cusp people are also gifted with a persuasive temperament. Highly motivated to achieve their goals, these individuals can be intimidating and chilling once they have made up their mind and start setting their plans in motion! They will not stop when troubles arise, and they will proceed with the greatest determination you have ever witnessed, even if they fail.
These people can also make use of their strengths for good. Another example of this cusp is Queen Elizabeth the 2nd, Katherine The Great and William Shakespeare. These people have a tendency to make history!
The Aries native tends to ignore the smaller details, but the influence of Taurus allows them to think everything through slowly, and proceed with caution. This is a particularly compelling combination as they will have no fear when facing challenges and threats, and they will pour their heart and soul into whatever they have a passion for. This combination results in a healthy balance.
The influence of Taurus can bestow an ability to work well with money and investments. When these people decide they want to pursue an endeavor or investment, the Aries in them goes all out. They will devote everything they have, knowing it will lead to a fruitful outcome as the Taurus in them has assessed all the possible outcomes. These people are remarkable in a position of power, as they have an understanding of what works, and tend to make the right decisions.

They can be unaware of the underlying emotions and feelings they are experiencing as they do not allow their thoughts to go to deep into their emotions. It is not always a bad thing, as these people are usually so balanced they do not need to give much attention to their inner emotional development.
They must avoid succumbing to their Taurus tendencies of wanting to relax and be comfortable, however, the Aries influence will rarely allow them to become too complacent, and push them out their comfort zone. These people always need to be challenged, because if life is too easy they will never push themselves and uncover their inner strength and passion. Once they uncover their passion, it is like a never-ending fire that burns inside them, and this fire can light up everyone and everything around them!

ABOUT THE CUSPS
When observing a Natal chart, you will see it consists of a 360-degree circle. These 360 degrees are divided into 30-degree segments, thus making up the 12 signs of the Zodiac. A cusp is a line that separates two different Zodiac Signs. It is rare that a person is born on the exact 0 degrees of a cusp between two signs, and their Sun will usually be a few degrees in either one of the signs. For example, with the Aries/Taurus cusp, the Sun can move from Aries into Taurus on any day between April 16 to April 23 If you are born during a cusp, it is important to get an accurate Natal chart generated according to your exact birth time in order to determine whether you are a born on the exact cusp, or whether your sun is slightly more in one sign. If the degree is at 0, you will have qualities of both signs.
When interpreting the Zodiac signs, you will find that each sign is in a different life cycle, or a different age in life. Aries age is around 0-1 years, the age of a newborn baby. They have limited awareness of the environment around them and they scream and cry to get their needs met. The Taurus age is a toddler. They still have a very fresh perspective, but now they have a better understanding of life and systems and they have learned to communicate. They have also developed all of their senses, thus allowing them to absorb more information from the environment around them.
