Characteristics of those born on
the Cusp of Gemini and Cancer
Known as: The Cusp of Magic
Gemini Cancer Cusp Signs can be sensitive individuals. However, when adventurous, flirty, social butterfly Gemini combines with caring, sensitive, comfort-loving and traditional Cancer it results in something special. This, in turn, will inspire other people.
The ruling planet of Gemini is Mercury, which gives The Twins a curious and quirky take on the world.
Cancer is ruled by The Moon and its moods. However, the influence of Gemini in this Cusp Combination will do a lot to lighten their mood.

The Element of Gemini is Air and Cancer is Water
What happens when Water is combined with Air?
When the Elements of Air and Water mix, it makes for bubbles and fizz!
However, this combination of Elements produces an individual who will need their own space sometimes. While at the same time they benefit from the connection with others.
As with any Cusp Sign, there will be inner conflicts. For example, the Gemini part of this combo will bring out the chatterbox. However, there will also be times when the Moon’s moody influence on Cancer will ensure that silence and moods come to the fore.

The Gemini Cancer Personality
Caring and devoted, those born on the Gemini-Cancer cusp bring to their world a lighthearted kindness.
Gemini’s care-free spirit lightens up the intensity of Cancer. However, these Cuspers can be equally impulsive and grounded at the same time!
They are also very expressive and have great imagination. They love to learn and will also generously share what they’ve learned with others.
Often super-emotional, Gemini Cancer prefer to live their lives surrounded by family and friends. This means that if they have no-one to devote themselves to, it can lead to depression and self-destructive behaviour.
But because they are so friendly and gregarious it is rare to find a Gemini/Cancer alone for long.
The energy of Gemini may seem at odds with slower Cancer, but it actually results in someone who, while moody at times, is generally bright and airy.
They are also capable of deep emotional attachments.
Protective of those they love, Gemini/Cancers won’t stand by when they are threatened. They often have many friends and acquaintances .
What you see is what you get – their emotional honesty is among the strongest in the Zodiac.
This starsign combination results in individuals who have close family ties with their siblings. They are lovers of people and their varied interests and pursuits make them interesting to talk to.
Gemini Cancer Cusp Signs have a strong interest in food and their willingness to always try something new makes them excellent cooks.
One of their strongest attributes is their ability to understand the difficulties of others and what they need to do to work through it.
Totally affectionate, the Gemini/Cancer combination makes them among the most caring characters of the Zodiac.
Gemini Cancer Love Compatibility
Those born on the Gemini Cancer Cusp will probably be looking for love with individuals who are loyal, intelligent, independent and sensitive.
They prefer people who are consistent and pay attention to detail.
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.
Cancer is ruled by the moon, which is the ruler of the emotions and the soul.

Cancer is a Water Sign
The Aristolean Elements The Zodiac is divided into four Elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. These represent the four basic modes of being.
Signs that share an Element are generally regarded to be harmonious with each other.
The Element of Cancer is “Water”, which it shares, and is compatible with, Scorpio and Pisces.
The Element of Water symbolizes flowing, intense emotions. Actions and decisions are based on feelings rather than facts.
Water represents intuition, sensitivity, compassion, nurture and deep emotions.

The Qualities of Cancer
The signs of the Zodiac are also divided into Qualities: Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable and signs that share a Quality are generally regarded to be hostile to each other.
The Quality determines the basis for an individual’s temperament. Those with a certain Quality will tend to have dominating characteristics that are deeply ingrained and unchanged throughout their life.
Each Quality views the world in a different way and reacts to stimuli differently so that their reasoning and actions may be contradictory to the other Qualities.
The Quality of Cancer is “Cardinal”
The Cardinal, or moveable, Quality is known to be a dynamic force. The original Latin word “cardinal” translates to “hinge”.
It is used to describe the Quality of each of the starsigns that mark the transition into a new temperate season. Therefore, these signs are known for initiating action and providing strong leadership.
On the flip side, Cardinal signs can be thought of as stubborn and demanding. They are sure that their way is the one and only way.
Aries, Libra and Capricorn are also Cardinal signs and are therefore less likely to be compatible with Cancer.
Are you compatible with your partner? Will your relationship last?
Cancerians are very sensitive souls, who need a lot of understanding. However, in return, once you have earned their love, they will put you before everything else and they will expect this in return.
For some partners this will be above and beyond their capabilities and they will find their Cancerian partners too demanding and possessive.
So which star signs are the most compatible for Cancerians?
Who makes the best partners for these deep feeling individuals?
Soft and cuddly
Like their female counterparts, the Cancerian man, is soft and cuddly underneath their hard shell exterior. Very domesticated, Cancerian men are very much at home cooking in the kitchen.
Because the moon rules Cancer, the men born under this Zodiac sign are very sentimental and emotional and suffer the same extremes of emotion as the female members of this star sign. They find it easier to express their emotions than men born under any other star sign.
Cancerian men have very strong emotional ties to their mothers and they either love them or hate them. This of course could cause problems for any other women in their lives. Too strong a bond with their mother can sometimes make their partner feel pushed out and if the Cancerian man’s relationship with his mother is negative then this could affect his view of all women.
All Cancerians make doting parents and the men are just as maternal as the women. Any woman trying to woo a Cancerian male will find that the way to his heart is definitely through his stomach!

How to woo a Cancerian
Cancerians love culture, so a trip to the theatre or an Art Gallery will probably go down very well. But because of their home loving nature renting a video and getting a takeout will also be acceptible. But they won’t turn down a romantic candle-lit dinner either.
