Because zodiac signs begin and end on a different day each year—which is only complicated by taking time zones into consideration—many people including popular astrology writers and memelords do a bit of guessing as to when signs begin. This is completely un-astrological, as the basis of astrology is tracking the movements of the planets, not guessing!
You have an entire birth chart that maps every planet and not just the sun!
Sagittarius Capricorn Cusp – Cusp of Prophecy
And—try to stick with me here, since this is complicated astrology that cannot be expressed with a meme! Astrologers use a forecasting technique called progression, where each day after your birth correlates roughly to that year of your life. For example, if there was a full moon 10 days after you were born, then when you are around 10 years old, you'll experience a major release around whatever the theme of that original full moon was. And if you were born 10 days before the sun changed signs, then by the time you are 10 years old, your progressed sun is entering the next sign.
If you were born at the tail end of a sign, like on the last day of Cancer, for example, then your sun will progress into Leo when you are about one years old, which will certainly leave an impact.
Belief or use of cusps—in the sense that being born within a few days of the changeover makes you a bit of each sign—has long been a signal to practicing astrologers that the person using the term is a total novice or phony. Absolutely no practicing astrologer that I have met or read in the last 15 years of immersing myself in the astrology community uses cusps in this way, because to do so would expose a fundamental misunderstanding of the degrees of the zodiac.
What's in the stars for you in November? If your birthday is between June 19 and June 23 , you may feel like you have the characteristics of both Gemini and Cancer.
Capricorn- Aquarius cusp babies are born between January 18 and January Just because you were born on the Aries-Pisces cusp, you cannot be both signs. Of course, getting a psychic reading will also help you further understand your identity and personality. For instance, even if you have the sun at 0 degrees of Aries, it might literally be the only planet that you have in the sign of Aries.
I have the sun at the very end of Libra. Another reason you may not identify with your sun sign—which is even more interesting!
Mercury rules how we communicate, as well as how we process information. I would add that if you were born on a cusp, this becomes less likely.
