Characteristics of People Born on Zodiac Cusps

Civilizations all over the world have been using astrology for thousands of years to predict future events and gain insight into the human condition. Zodiac signs might not be an exact science. But there must be something to them if people have been using them all this time, right?

You might know your zodiac sign and all the characteristics associated with your sign. But people’s personalities don’t always align with the stars. If you’re one of the many people whose sign doesn’t align with their personality, it could be that you were born on the cusp of two signs. We’ll discuss what that means for you in this brief article.


Libras are known for the sense of balance they bring to the table. The Libra sign is the scale, symbolizing their sense of equanimity. Scorpios are known for their sensuality and aggression among other dominant traits. Cusp individuals tend to do well in relationships because their melding of two signs makes them versatile, and this is true of those on the Libra Scorpio cusp, as well.

If you’re on the Libra side of this pairing, you might have a lot of patience like most Libras coupled with the ability to hold a grudge like a Scorpio. Being on the Scorpio side of this pairing means you’ll still have the magnetism and instincts that everyone loves about Scorpios, but you’re more likely to be more approachable than others who share your sign.

The Cancer-Leo coupling is one of the most intriguing pairings. It’s a match made for a dramatic love life. Both Cancers and Leos are ruled by powerful planets, making them both exceptionally in touch with their emotions.

The emotional resonance of the Cancer-Leo cusp can be felt from planets away. It’s appropriately called the oscillating cusp, but it’s a great soul bonding. Being on the Cancer side of this pairing lends itself to intuitiveness and dutifulness as Cancers are known to lavish their closest acquaintances with love. However, Cancers benefit from the emotional strength and stability of Leos.

Leos are lions and are known for being determined and regal. However, their proximity to the Cancer sign in this pairing makes Leos less prone to arrogance. Indeed, the sensitivity of Cancers and the domineering traits of Leos complement each other like live jazz, cocktails, and Saturday nights.


The great thing about Aquariuses is they’re natural communicators. They excel at bringing people together, and they always have a vision for the future. Being in proximity to Capricorns makes them more serious, turning them into manifestation machines. Capricorns are known for their tenacity and driven nature. Sharing a cusp with Aquarius makes them more sensitive and conscious of social issues.

Indeed, there is much insight to gain from zodiac signs. That doesn’t mean you should live your life based on your horoscope. But you can learn a lot about yourself and others by learning about the different water signs, earth signs, fire signs, and air signs of the zodiac. However, as interesting as astrology is, your personality is much more nuanced than the zodiac sign under which you were born.

If you’re on the Libra-Scorpio cusp, you have all the makings of a power broker or business mogul. You have the people skills of a Libra and the determined Scorpio energy that all other signs admire. Being on the Cancer side of the Gemini-Cancer cusp makes a person likely to be intuitive with great analytical skills. The Virgo-Libra and Capricorn-Aquarius cusps are powerful combinations as well. As you can see, being born on the verge of two zodiac signs can be advantageous.
