Have you ever had that strange, like inner conflict feeling, when you know you are someone, but sometimes feel like a totally different person? This is more likely to be happening for you if you are born on a cusp – a transition of one week before Sun leaves one zodiac sign and enters another.
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.
There is a certain number of astrologers who carry a belief that cusps personalities are more likely to be given to those who started something super important in their past life, related to the current life, and haven’t got a chance to finish it properly. In order to complete your past life karma and to be able to start your journey of self-discovering in present time, cusps need to get in touch with all parts of one identity and start slight transitioning to other one right after that.
The other part of the Astrology community believes that cusps personalities are given to those who need to learn how to balance their energy. Cusp personality is like a scale of mood swings, and you need to experience each trait and identity part of both signs in order to discover the actual truth about yourself. They believe that it’s important to stop that inner conflict between two energies and to embrace the specific identity that you’ve been awarded.
