Do you ever feel like your star sign is not true to your nature, and your horoscope is never particularly accurate? You may have been born “on the cusp”!
Being born on the cusp means that your time of birth was at a point where the Sun changes from one zodiac sign to another, and this can mean that your personality is made up from a combination of qualities of the two signs you were born between.
People born on the cusp are usually born on or around the 21st of the month, as this is roughly the day that the Sun transitions from one star sign to another. However, the cusp can be anywhere between the last 5 days of one star sign, and the first 5 days of another. The only way to know for certain is to have an astrologer look into your date, time and location of birth.
