Most people understand that you belong to a zodiac sign based on the date that you were born. But what if you were born right on the cusp between two signs? For instance, you are an Aries if you were born between March 21st and April 19th. You would be a Taurus if you were born between April 20th and May 20th. So, what happens if you were born in the middle of the night on April 20th?
The Zodiac Cusp
If you were born directly between two zodiac signs, then people refer to this as the “zodiac cusp.” Sometimes you’ll have someone whose personality does not seem to match up with their sign. They were likely born directly during this kind of in-between space. A reliable description of what this person will be like is difficult. You could technically be born an Aquarius yet still carry significant Pisces personality traits.
Is It Good to Be Born On the Cusp?
Different individuals feel differently about what it means to be born on the cusp between two signs. It is much like when you’re born with a caul over your face. Some cultures say that it’s lucky. Others have strong negative superstitions having to do with it.
If you were born right between two signs, then you don’t need to feel cursed. You should not think of yourself as being particularly blessed, either. Thinking in either of these ways can lead you to feel like you’re not in control of your actions or what happens to you. It’s best to think of being born on the cusp as an interesting anomaly. It is not one that dictates everything about you, though.
You Are a Hybrid of Signs
What’s undeniable about being born between two signs is that you will be a hybrid of the two. You might embody some distinct characteristics of both Virgo and Libra, for instance. It could be Scorpio and Sagittarius, or something else.
An individual with blended personality traits can be a walking contradiction. You’re going to be a person who is complex beyond what is considered normal. That does not have to be a negative thing by any means, though. Your unpredictability will likely make you a favorite of those who gravitate toward the unusual. You’re like a unicorn: a rare and wonderful creature who certain individuals will always want to be around.
Are There Any Drawbacks to this Condition?
The only potential problem with being born on the cusp is that sometimes you will feel pulled in two different directions. What’s nice about being born smack-dab in the middle of an astrological sign is that you generally know yourself very well. You know what you want to do in most situations, once you’re old enough to have some life experience under your belt, anyway.
Say you were born between two signs. It might happen to be two signs that approach dilemmas or challenges in distinctly different ways. Are you in a quandary regarding how to react to a situation? Your birth date might be what is causing it.
If this is a situation that confronts you, then it may take some time until you can grasp the best way to react to things. You are likely to have the strengths of two signs, and also their weaknesses. Eventually, you will learn which of the signs is dominant. Throughout your life, though, you will probably have days where you feel like one sign is in control. At times, the other sign that’s part of your personality will come to the forefront.
You Will Always Keep People Guessing
In your relationships with those around you, you will always be a bit of an enigma. That will be true for family members, lovers, friends, and coworkers. You will be unpredictable. Your personality will be hard to pin down.
You could argue that’s not a bad thing, though. Consistency has its place. Still, those born on the cusp have an inherent ability to think outside the box. You will likely be unusually creative. You may be able to look at problems from multiple viewpoints. You will be invaluable in your chosen profession. You’ll be an asset and the proverbial diamond in the rough.
