As if life wasn’t confusing enough, imagine the life of a zodiac cusp — someone who is born three to four days before or after the signs transition. Sound confusing? Tell me about it. Being on the cusp of two zodiac signs would be classified as any of the following: Capricorn-Aquarius, Aquarius-Pisces, Pisces-Aries, Aries-Taurus, Taurus-Gemini, Gemini-Cancer, Cancer-Leo, Leo-Virgo, Virgo-Libra, Libra-Scorpio, Scorpio-Sagittarius, and Sagittarius-Capricorn. People who identify as cusp may see themselves as being unique within their sun sign.
If you’re on the cusp , or just find yourself constantly identifying with more than one sign,
keep reading for nine reasons why it isn’t always ideal (and for some ways to overcome all of that!).
1. You’re a Clueless Cusp at First
The beginning of the cusp discovery can be both exciting and confusing at the same time. You probably feel seen and understood knowing that it’s actually a thing and that you’re not alone, but you’re also probably wondering how it all works. Take your time in learning all about the traits of both of your zodiac signs, and don’t feel weird if you identify with two polar opposite traits.
2. You Have to Find Middle Ground
Being a cusp can sometimes make you feel like you’re in a dark war with yourself, especially when your two signs are vastly different. To find relief, just try focusing on the light within your astrology pair and finding that common ground between the two.
3. You Feel Like You Have Nothing to Wear
When you’re a Aries-Taurus, you may find your personal style somewhere between creative and comfortable. Each sign has their own ways of putting together some cool threads from their closet, so just experiment and find your personal style. There’s no wrong answer here, despite it sometimes feeling like there is. Do you!
4. Finding the One
Each sign has their own preferences on dating and compatibility, but what happens when your cusp signs cater to two different love languages? In this case, one person’s Taurus could be another person’s Gemini. Try not to put restrictions on your love when it comes to zodiac signs, because, as they say, you can’t help who you fall for.
5. You Might Feel Like an Imposter
After discovering that you are indeed a cusp, it may be hard deciding which sign you identify most with more, which can make you feel like you have imposter syndrome, or chronic self-doubt. It’s key to remind yourself that there’s no need to pick sides. When you stop looking at it as two separate things, you allow your signs work together in harmony.
6. You Can Find a Balance
It can be tough to find stability in you cusp signs, especially if you don’t center yourself in the middle of the two. Fortunately, you may find balance in the confusion knowing that your sun sign will always be in a category of its own.
7. You Can Find the Perfect Profession
Taking the time to get to know the two zodiac signs you’re on the cusp of could provide detailed information on your professional strengths. A Cancer-Leo cusp, for example, could find themselves both welcoming and charming in the work space.
8. You Can Make a Lot of Friends
Just like love, there’s also compatibility within our friendships based on personal horoscopes. And because you’re on the cusp, you probably relate to more people than normal. Get out there and make those friends!
9. There Are Doubtful Naysayers
Not everyone will agree with your views on being a zodiac cusp of two signs, and that’s okay! Free your mind from the clouded judgement of others and have confidence in yourself and your feelings.
