Taurus Gemini Cusp Signs

Characteristics of those born on the
Cusp of Taurus and Gemini

Cusp dates: May 19 to May 23
known as: The Cusp of Energy

The combination of Taurus and Gemini results in a youthful go-getter, who is physically strong, clever and communicative. They have tremendous imagination and are very expressive.

This makes them very adaptable, with an ability to get along with others from all walks of life and in many different situations. However, they can run out of steam. They want to be able to “do it all” and this can lead to fatigue because they don’t want to miss out on all the fun and sometimes they just don’t know when to stop.

Taurus and Gemini are both such pleasure-loving signs, that they need to be careful of not overdoing food and drink. They also need to try to be more sensitive to the feelings of others and if they would just learn to stop, take a step back and listen from time to time they would have the potential to be successful.

The negative qualities of each star sign are successfully balanced out by the positive qualities of the other. Taurus is literally bull-headed at times and this is tempered by Gemini’s ability to reason with people. Likewise, the flighty nature of Gemini is balanced out by Taurus’ ability to be persistent and dependable.

On the negative side, Taurus/Gemini can be too materialistic as they look for constant stimulation.

The combination of Taurus and Gemini results in individuals who remain youthful and lighthearted throughout their lives. They are charming and friendly and make natural leaders. They usually have many friends and contacts in all walks of life. They tend to be very successful in what they choose to do.

Please note the “Cusp Dates” given above are general and may vary from this occasionally.

Aries Taurus Cusp Signs

The Characteristics of those born on
the Cusp of Aries and Taurus

Cusp dates: April 15 to April 24
Known as: The Cusp of Power

If you were born between April 15 and April 18, you are more of an Aries, with a bit of Taurus thrown in. True Aries-Taurus Cuspers will have birthdays on April 19 or 20. Those born between April 21 and 24, will be Taurus with Aries influence.

The Element of Aries is Fire and Taurus is Earth.  Will Taurus douse the Flames of Aries?

Those born on the Cusp of Aries and Taurus are certainly a force to be reckoned with. They are natural leaders, taking charge in the home and at work due to the successful combination of energy from both signs. Aries is compulsive and has an energy, which drives them forward, but they can become bored with a project before it is finished.

This is tempered by the more practical side of Taurus, who will take care of the fine details and is more likely to see the project through. When it comes to achieving their goals, this is one of the strongest combinations of starsigns because they can be so darn persistent.

But this energy can come with negative consequences. Aries and Taurus combined can be forceful and this can result in them being too driven and opinionated. OK, so they probably know they are right, but the Aries-Taurus can be very blunt and they need to make allowances for others’ views and feelings.

Pisces Aries Cusp Signs

The Characteristics of those born on the
Cusp of Pisces and Aries

Cusp dates: March 19 to March 23
Known as: The Cusp of Rebirth

At first glance, you would be excused for wondering how the combination of Pisces and Aries Sun signs could possibly work, without causing massive internal conflict, but somehow it does. Combine the dreamy mindset of Pisces, who is strongly intuitive, with the get up and go of Aries and you have someone who knows what they want and how to get it – now!

This Zodiac combination is dedicated, assertive and likes to get things going. As a result they are strong leaders. This is helped by the fact that they know how to push limits and take others along with them.

But they have to be careful they don’t rub people up the wrong way, with their impatience, directness and total conviction that they are always right. They need to work on their social skills, particularly developing more patience with others and not expecting everyone to keep up with their pace. They also need to keep their ego in check and understand that life is not just about what they want or think is right.

If a project takes time to complete there’s a danger that Pisces/Aries will become bored and lose interest before the project is completed. However, despite their natural impatience, they can be compassionate, sensitive and sympathetic to others and imaginative. They love new projects and their enthusiasm and the need for challenge will cause them to jump in immediately, looking to see if they can push beyond normal limitations.

Pisces/Aries are sometimes enigmatic, hiding their real selves. They are thoughtful and some are blessed with exceptional musical talent. In their leisure time, this Cusp sign will play as hard (and competitively) as they work at the office.

They enjoy venting their natural aggression and emotional stress in sports, both individual and team.

The greatest strength of the Pisces and Aries Zodiac Combination is in their compassion, energy, initiative and courage. Although they can be ego-centric, their natural sensitivity makes them one of the most understanding of the Cusp Signs.

Please note: The Cusp Dates given above are just a general range and may vary depending upon the year of birth.

Aquarius Pisces Cusp Signs

The Characteristics of those born on the
Cusp of Aquarius and Pisces

Cusp dates: February 15 to February 24
Known as: The Cusp of Sensitivity

Spritual, compassionate, imaginitive, peace-loving, artistic and very friendly, this Cusp sign combines the quirky enery of the air sign Aquarius, with the dreamy Pisces to produce individuals who are very intuitive and receptive to the needs of others.

They are very intellectual at a high level, but fail miserably when it comes to practical details and following through. They can be so taken up with their thoughts and ideas that they will become forgetful, turn up late for appointments and lose things.

Although strongly spiritual, this Zodiac combination may not be religious. They are artistic and have ideals, but sometimes these are undefined and vague and not at all practical. They see reality as an intrusion, which can then make them pessimistic and lacking in mental energy, but they are willing to adapt and are broad-minded, so their ideals can change if necessary.

Aquarius and Pisces are logical and self-confident, but they can become aloof from people around them and may seem cold toward people who don’t share their attitude to life. They can also become frightened or withdrawn if their emotions are abused too many times and will hide their real selves.

Very sociable, they find that contact with others and excercise will relieve stress – team sports are best for them. In love Aquarius and Pisces can be flirty, caring and romantic.

The great strength of the Aquarius and Pisces combination is in their visionary nature and their compassion. They are adept in persuading others to see things in a new light. Their ability to work around and even break the rules to help others reach their fullest potential makes them one of the most understanding Cusp signs of the zodiac.

Please note: the Cusp dates given above are general and will at times vary depending on the year of birth.

Capricorn Aquarius Cusp Signs

The Characteristics of those born on the
Cusp of Capricorn and Aquarius

Cusp dates: January 19 to January 23
Known as: The Cusp of Mystery and Imagination

The cusp of Capricorn and Aquarius often struggles to balance the two very different charateristics of their combined star signs. They can be social, but reserved; independent while craving security; traditional, yet not traditional.

Things are never dull around Capricorn/Aquarius and they can be found leading unusual lives. They love to talk and socialise and are happy having all sorts of conversations about strange or unusual topics.

Friendship is a priority and they have many contacts, in addition to their close friends. Ambitious and disciplined, determined and dedicated to achieving their goals, they crave independence, and can sometimes seem aloof, which can lead to difficulties in close relationships. In business, they are practical, realistic and very careful not to get in over their heads.

Capricorn and Aquarius is another Zodiac combination that works extremely hard to bring their ideas to reality and will doggedly refuse to give up. And although they are peace-loving and friendly, and normally tolerant and broad-minded, they can be narrow-minded and overcritical of anyone who does not have their drive and ambition.

They are logical and self-confident, but this can also make them aloof from the people around them. This is one of the responsible and traditional Zodiac combinations and among the most innovative and hard working, their great strength is in their ability to set goals and their willingness to keep working until they achieve them because they have inexhaustible ambition and are not easily distracted from their goals.

Please note: The Cusp Dates given above can vary depending on the year of birth and are given as a general, not specific, guide.

Scorpio Sagittarius Cusp Signs

The Characteristics of those born on the
Cusp of Scorpio and Sagittarius

Cusp Dates: November 19 to November 23
Known as: The Cusp of Revolution

Full of strength and rebellious energy, the Cusp Combination of Scorpio and Sagittarius is a dynamic mix thanks to Scorpio’s boldness, aggression and intensity and the adaptability of active Sagittarius. This combines to produce a rebellious, fearless individual that could be accused of running wild.

Rebelliousness need not be a bad thing though – these people are free-thinkers and willing to speak their minds. This can lead to conflicts with authority however, so self-employment may be a good career option and if it can be something that benefits human-kind, then so much the better.

Selfishness is a trait that needs working on and Scorpio/Sagittarius need to try to be more in tune with others’ feelings and they can be impatient and pushy if something isn’t being done in the way they want. However, their natural generosity and sense of humour provides a balance to their more negative qualities.

Scorpio and Sagittarius people like to indulge in deep and focused learning. They are versatile and progressive, but at times they are unsure of their motivation. Their natural secretiveness can also hold them back.

Outgoing and friendly, the Scorpio/Sagittarius combination is deep and loyal, but can often be misunderstood, and others may see them as controlling or sarcastic. Broad-minded and enthusiastic, they sometimes need to engage their brain before they open their mouth, which can get them into trouble.

Scorpio and Sagittarians are both very mystical and scientific Star signs, giving them a special awareness of what is going on around them. They love to debate and their confidence may come across as being argumentative, while their directness can make them seem blunt – but they are just trying to get into the core of the discussion, not realising they may offend.

Natural comics, they are high-spirited and enthusiastic, often flirtatious, while being possessive in their own relationships and they tend to enjoy social life immensely. In their spare time they tend to participate in sports that will stretch their abilities.

The great strength of Scorpio/Sagittarius is how they are so determined to see things right through to the end. They will not succumb to boredom to stop them completing projects and they have total commitment in everything they do. Their great love of information and research makes them one of the most learned and knowledgeable characters of the Zodiac.
