Although my Sun Sign is definitely Gemini, I also have some Taurus traits. For example Geminis are not the most maternal of Star Signs, however I have strong maternal instincts because of the Taurus influence.
This means that a straight-forward Zodiac Compatibility Chart does not work for me.
If it was not for the fact that I have been very happily married to a Sagittarius since 1996, then with what I now know about Astrology and relationships, I would have no hesitation in getting my Personal Horoscope Reading done.
Do you know the Secret to a Man’s Heart?
It’s speaking the same language!
What is the #1 reason why a man pulls away?
He feels misunderstood!
The key to any man’s heart is that you make him feel that you understand him.
However, if you, or your Man, were Born on the Cusp, it makes it even more difficult to work out how your/his mind works. This means that the only way you can properly discover exactly how you and he can work together is to get a Personal Horoscope Reading.
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.
Gemini Cancer Cusp Dates
June 16 to June 23
Those born between June 16 and 19, will find the influence of Gemini strong, with some Cancerian traits thrown in.
True Gemini-Cancer Cuspers have birthdays on June 20 and 21.
Those born on June 22 or 23 will be Cancer with a bit of Gemini added to the mix.
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.
“Astrology on the Cusp: Birthdays on the Edge” is installed on my Kindle and is the best book I have found about “Cuspers”
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.
The ruling planet of Leo is the Sun and the ruling planet of Virgo is Mercury. This means that the Leo Virgo Cusp Sign is open, logical, has overwhelming power but is prone to change their minds.
The Zodiac Sign of Leo The Lion is one of those larger than life characters. This means that there can be inner turmoil when you consider how reservedVirgo can be.
However, the influence of Virgo means that Leo Virgo Cusp Signs will need more space and time to do their own thing than Leo would normally want.
Leo Virgo Cusp Dates
August 18 to August 27
Those born between August 18 and August 22 are more of a Leo, with a bit of Virgo thrown in.
True Leo-Virgo Cuspers have birthdays on August 23 or 24.
However, those born between August 25 and 27, will be Virgo with Leo influence.
The Element of Virgo is Earth and Leo is Fire
Will earth smother the fire or will the fire continue to burn despite it?
The result is that sometimes the Leo/Virgo will be full of beans. However, the next minute they will have reverted to not wanting to see anyone, while they do their own thing.
“Astrology on the Cusp: Birthdays on the Edge” sits on my Kindle and is full of helpful information about “Cuspers”, who can be very complex creatures at the best of times!
The Leo Virgo Personality
Leo has a huge need to create. Virgos combine their skills and talents together for the good of others.
This means that the result is a combination that has huge energy and ambition. This leads to success in whatever they choose to become involved.
Leo Virgo has great business acumen. They have meticulous attention to detail. This is combined with their ability to stick to a well thought out organised routine.
Leo-Virgos tend to be popular and even inspiring to others.
However, although the Virgo side of their nature can make them want to keep their own company at times, Leo and Virgo cusps are friendly and sociable. This means that they love to have fun and live life with enthusiasm, throwing themselves into whatever they choose to do.
Those born on the Cusp of Leo Virgo are natural leaders. Their administrative prowess helps ensure that their projects are successful.
Virgo Leo Cuspers are real “givers”. This means that they are one of the most caring Zodiac sign combinations.
Leo Virgo Love Compatibility
In the Leo Virgo Cusp Sign the roar of Leo runs the risk of being silenced by nit-picky, perniticky Virgo. This means that they could find themselves more “single” than they would like.
However, the influence of Virgo, will make the Leo side of this combo more curious about others, including those from other cultures or countries.

Cusp Signs Compatibility
One of the problems with trying to determine the Compatibility of anyone Born on the Cusp, is that although the Sun can only be in one Zodiac Sign at the time of birth, the influence of the other sign can provide quite a mix!
“Cuspers” really need to look at their detailed birth chart. This will give a clearer picture about their personality traits and with whom they may be ideally compatible.
However, I have discovered a unique book that goes into amazing detail about Cusp Signs and Cusp Sign Compatibility.

Problems will arise if Scorpio-Sagittarius ends up with someone who is nit-picky and finds fault in the most trivial of things. In this case they should think twice about the relationship!
Sagittarius-Capricorn with Taurus; Virgo with Sagittarius-Capricorn; Sagittarius-Capricorn with Capricorn

Yes, Sagittarius-Capricorn will have fun with Air Signs. However, just as they feel that they are beginning to understand them, Gemini, Libra or Aquarius may just disappear….
Sagittarius-Capricorn with Cancer; Scorpio with Sagittarius-Capricorn; Sagittarius-Capricorn with Pisces
Sagittarius-Capricorn can be materialistic – they just love the latest electronic gadgets. The Water Signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces will find this fascinating.

Capricorn-Sagittarius should be sure to appreciate all this. Even if Water Signs make them feel like a kid sometimes!
Capricorn-Aquarius with Aries; Leo with Capricorn-Aquarius; Capricorn-Aquarius with Sagittarius
This mix of Earth and Air will experience fun relationships with the Fire Signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.This means that building a life together is definitely on the cards!

Capricorn-Aquarius with Gemini; Libra with Capricorn-Aquarius; Capricorn-Aquarius with Aquarius
Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, the Air Signs, will help bring out the more fun side of the personality of those born on the Cusp of Mystery and Imagination. Also, Air Signs will help stop them being too brooding.
Air Signs are known as fun signs and they will suit the combination of Capricorn-Aquarius. However, only as long as they are willing to take on the role of decision maker.
TheCapricornin this Cusp Signs craves consistency, which is totally at odds with the Air Signs. This can cause issues.
Capricorn-Aquarius with Taurus; Virgo with Capricorn-Aquarius; Capricorn-Aquarius with Capricorn
The influence of Capricorn gives this Cusp Combination a practical nature. This will appeal to their fellow Earth signs of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
Earth Signs will also appreciate these Cuspers’ love of the comforts in life. Also they share the same work ethic.
Capricorn-Aquarius with Cancer; Scorpio with Capricorn-Aquarius; Capricorn-Aquarius with Pisces
Reassuring and loving Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) will remind Capricorn-Aquarius that it is crucial to be aware of their feelings. Also they will share their enjoyment of all different kinds of entertainment, food and traveling.
Finally, sensitive Water Signs will understand and respect when Aquarius-Capricorn needs to be left alone to enjoy their own space.
However, this could end up making Aquarius-Pisces feel constantly rushed. This is particularly the case if their intended partner is an Aries or a Leo.
Just when these Cuspers try to take a well-earned break from all this intensity, the Fire Sign will insist that they “have to” get on with something. As a result this could drive them nuts!
However, at the same time Fire Signs are a lot of fun and will help Pisces-Aries to be less insular.
Aquarius-Pisces with Taurus; Virgo with Aquarius-Pisces; Aquarius-Pisces with Capricorn
The steady Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) will appreciate the depth of thought and feelings of Aquarius-Pisces. Even though they do not feel the same way.
However, the problem will be that the Earth Signs have a deep-seated need for security. In the longer term this may rankle with the unique, revolutionary spirit of this Cusp combination.
Likewise Virgo in particular will fully test the theory that opposites attract!
Aquarius-Pisces with Gemini; Libra with Aquarius-Pisces; Aquarius-Pisces with Aquarius
The lighthearted, and sometime fickle Air Signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) will make good friends to those born on the Cusp of Sensitivity.
However, In a love match they may not be able to give the depth craved by Aquarius-Pisces.
Always quick to react, Air Signs may not always appreciate the need for these Cuspers to let off steam about something. Gemini, Libra and Aquarius will not understand that, while wanting to complain, this Sun Sign combination may not really want to do anything about it.
Geminis, in particular, may misunderstand this. This means that they could end up irritating the heck out of Pisces-Aquarius!
Aquarius-Pisces with Cancer; Scorpio with Aquarius-Pisces; Aquarius-Pisces with Pisces
The Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) will definitely “get” Pisces-Aries. They will understand this Cuspers’ independence and quirky characteristics.
Also, Water Signs are renowned for their moodiness. Although, they will be happy sharing a domestic situation with Aquarius-Pisces.
However, Pisces-Aquarius need be careful of Scorpios! Those born in October will probably be better suited to them, rather than those born in November.
But they need to watch out for the famous sting in the tail!
Pisces-Aries with Aries; Leo with Pisces-Aries; Pisces-Aries with Sagittarius
For those born on the Cusp of Pisces-Aries, relationships with the Fire Signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittariuswill feel right. In particular, an Aries partner will have a lot in common with them as far as their temperament is concerned.
However, Pisces-Aries should also watch for the impulsiveness of Aries. These Cuspers may end up yelling “Slow down!” to an Aries. This, while they lag behind trying to keep up!
Leo may not be as compatible as the other two Fire Signs with Pisces-Aries. This is because of their secretive nature and the need to be one-to-one for much of the time.
Sagittarius will be happy to be with Pisces-Aries. This is because the Archer is comfortable when they need to be apart.
Furthermore, Sagittarius will still need some reassurance from Aries-Pisces that all is well as they plan their next adventure.
Pisces-Aries with Taurus; Virgo with Pisces-Aries; Pisces-Aries with Capricorn
Pisces-Aries is a ray of sunshine to the Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn). They will appreciate how these Cuspers see the world. They also appreciate their inner depths and their artistic nature.
However, be aware that those born on the Cusp of Rebirth do not always appreciate the values of dependability shared by the Earth Signs!
Pisces-Aries with Gemini; Libra with Pisces-Aries; Pisces-Aries with Aquarius
Air Signs may find it difficult to be truly compatible with Pisces-Aries. Therefore, it may be better to focus on friendship.
Anything else could end up making them feel totally exhausted! The fun, whirling dervishes that are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius might make Pisces-Aries feel almost steady and grounded.
However, it could work, providing they have have sown their wild oats. They need to have matured and be ready for a steady relationship.
Pisces-Aries with Cancer; Scorpio with Pisces-Aries; Pisces-Aries with Pisces
The Water Signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces may make Capricorn-Aquarius feel they have a lot in common. Indeed they do!
However, these signs are probably too similar to this Cusp combo to be really interesting as partners.
Also, the broodiness and moodiness of the Water Signs will not help Pisces-Aries get out of themselves, although they will be loyal.
Cancer should make for a good match – these Cuspers and The Crab understand each other well. However, Aries-Pisces needs to be aware that they may drive their partner insane with their inconsistencies.
Finally, remember, once brought to the boil, Water Signs will continue to simmer long after everyone else has moved on from the argument!
The influence of Taurus tends to tone down the explosive nature of Aries. This means that you may find it possible to have good relationships with Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.
These are all Fire Signs. This could make for a hot combination that will keep you on your toes!
Aries-Taurus Cusp with Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn
Relationships with the Earth Signs of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn run the risk of getting into a “rut” .
However, providing you can recognise it when it happens, then there is the potential to put things right.
Aries-Taurus Cusp with Gemini, Libra and Aquarius
You may find that pairing with one of the Air Signs of Gemini, Libra or Aquarius could be extremely exciting to start with.
However, their tendency to move onto the “next shiny thing” could really irritate Aries-Taurus.
Aries-Taurus with Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces
The moody Water Signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces could turn out to be stable partners in the long run. This is providing Aries-Taurus is willing to step in and try to lighten their mood by taking these home-lovers out of the house.
Beware! You may find a relationship with Scorpio perplexing and challenging. They never fully open up and this could leave Aries-Taurus feeling excluded and left out.
Relationships with Fire Signs can be lively and as a result exhausting, so Taurus-Gemini may find themselves worn out as they try to keep up!
Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are the Fire Signs. However, Leo’s need to be the leader may end up clashing with The Cusp of Energy.
The stubborn nature of Taurus could meet the forcefulness of Leo head on!
Taurus-Gemini with Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn
Compatibility may be possible with Earth Signs Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn. This depends on whether they have enough get up and go to keep Taurus-Gemini interested.
Taurus-Gemini with Gemini, Libra and Aquarius
Gemini-Taurus will find they have a lot in common with Libra. However, in general the Air Signs, which also include Gemini and Aquarius could be too flighty.
The more down to earth nature that Taurus brings to this cusp combination may just be too much.
The mood swings of the Air Signs could also be too exhausting!
Taurus-Gemini with Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces
The Water Signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces may be a more compatible fit as they will provide a calmer influence. However, those born towards the end of Cancer, nearer Leo, will be less needy emotionally.
They are certainly more enjoyable to be with than a “full-blown” emotional Cancerian!
If Gemini-Cancer is looking for fun, then it might be found with a Fire Sign: Aries, Leo or Sagittarius. However, those born under the Cusp of Magic may find that sharing the spotlight with a Fire Sign is not easy!
Aries will understand where you are coming from. Leo will find you totally fascinating. However, while Sagittarius may stay awhile, you could find the Archer swiftly galloping off into the distance!
Gemini-Cancer with Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn
Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) may not be able to hold onto the interest of Gemini-Cancer for very long, especially if you are young.
They may become more appealing as you get older and get to the stage where you find stability a more attractive relationship ingredient.
Gemini-Cancer with Gemini, Libra and Aquarius
The inconsistency of the Air Signs of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius make them unreliable partners for a Cusp Sign that is looking for stability.
The kindness and stability desperately needed by the Cancer part of this combination is unlikely to be delivered!
The problem is that one minute an Air Sign will be all kindness and understanding. Then suddenly their switch can flick and they become exactly the opposite!
Gemini-Cancer will try to rationalise what happened. However, their partner will have moved on and forgotten all about it.
Gemini-Cancer with Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces
The tempermental compatibility of Water Signs, could be just what Cancer-Gemini needs. Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are well-known for their sensitivity and depth.

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.
Those born on the Aries and Taurus cusp have the potential for great satisfaction in life. This is thanks to the great action, that “ever on the go” Aries brings to the mix and the great will and strength of Taurus.
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.
