Libra Scorpio Cusp Personality

Libra-Scorpio have larger than life, dramatic personalities. They are not afraid of voicing their opinions. This may lead to friction as they annoy the heck out of people who do not appreciate their directness.

Libra brings to the combination their great judgement. Scorpio is very precise. This means that those born during the October Cusp  have to be careful of not being seen to want everything their own way.

However, there are inner conflicts. This happens when Libra’s thought and intellect is disturbed by Scorpio’s powerful and very deep emotions. This is because Libra is ruled by the head and Scorpio is ruled by the heart.

Both Libras and Scorpios like to get to the bottom of things and discover the truth. This means that they are happy to look at things from every angle.

Watch out though because this combination can be stubborn!

Libra-Scorpios are determined to see projects through and reach their goal. This means that they will refuse to give up when others have lost interest in a project.

Virgo Libra Cusp Signs

Characteristics of those born on the
Cusp of Virgo and Libra

Cusp dates: September 18 to September 27
Known as: The Cusp of Beauty

If you were born between September 18 and September 21, you are more of a Virgo, with a bit of Libra thrown in. True Virgo-Libra Cuspers will have birthdays on September 22 or 23. Those born between September 24  and 27, will be Libra with Virgo influence.

The Element of Virgo is Earth and Libra is Air. Will Virgo stifle Libra? Or will Libra lighten Virgo?

Ruled by the planets of Mercury and Venus, Virgo and Libra make for a delightful Zodiac combination thanks to the influences of the planets representing communication and love.

Lovers of beauty in people, art and nature, this Zodiac combination does have a more serious side. They have brilliant analytical skills and have a strong work ethic, which grows even stronger with age. They have an excellent head for business because of their logical approach to problem solving, combined with their diligence and reliability.

But they have to be careful that the perfectionist nature of their Virgo side, does not take over too much and because their highly balanced nature means they can always see every side of a dilemma, it can make it difficult for them to make decisions.

When Virgoan/Librans set goals for themselves, they have a dogged determined to succeed in reaching those goals. Because they tend to want to improve the lives of others, rather than constantly looking inwardly at themselves, the Virgoan association with health will often influence this combination to seek a career in medicine.

Because of the influence of Venus, the Zodiac combination of Virgo and Libra are at their happiest when they’re in a relationship and they have a strong sense of loyalty. They rarely display anger but if their sense of fair play has been violated, they are not beyond using subtle means to get even.

Virgo/Libra has a wonderful ability to see all sides of a situation, making them one of the most just and fairest of the Zodiac combinations.

Please note the “Cusp Dates” given under the image may vary from this in some years.

Cancer Leo Cusp Signs

Characteristics of those born on the
Cusp of Cancer and Leo

Cusp dates: July 19 to July 23
Known as: The Cusp of Oscillation

If you are a Cancer and Leo, you may sometimes find it hard to live with the inner turmoil created by the conflicting characteristics of these signs. Cancer is gentle and sensitive, while Leo is one of the dramatic signs of the Zodiac. There will be a lot of ups and downs to cope with.

The opposing elements of Fire and Water can result in Cancer/Leos being shy one minute and then totally outgoing the next. This can lead to others thinking that whichever way you go, you are totally self-absorbed as you veer from ultra-sensitive to totally insensitive.

So you have a constant battle to try to level out between the two!

On the plus side, this Zodiac combination makes for very creative people with a very caring nature. Both make great parents and traditional family life is very important to them.

Both Sun Signs have a natural ability to act and their love of the spotlight means that many Cancer and Leo combinations can be found on the stage and screen.

They also have a strong ability to see projects through to the finish. Leos are natural leaders and Cancerians are natural organisers – a winning combination, particularly as both tend to be popular.

Friendly, sociable, loyal, fun-loving and romantic, they live life with enthusiasm, which makes them a lot of friends.

Please note the “Cusp Dates” given above are general and may be different in some years.
