You are loyal to your friends and colleagues and eager to take certain people with you on your way to the top. Born on this cusp, your intuitive knowledge is joined by an impulsive -- sometimes immature -- need to act. Sometimes you will luck and find success this way, but others may not be comfortable going along on your ride. Because you were born on the Cusp of Rebirth, you have a passionate imagination that allows you to craft new and different opinions, theories, and stories.
You are an innovative pioneer who can easily understand the needs of others and take the best course of action. Your ability to churn out ideas, solutions, and plans makes you an exceptional leader. You know how to solve problems creatively and have the energy to act and make concrete decisions. Your different way of looking at the world and willingness to share with others can sometimes be off-putting in social settings. You love to dive into deep subjects quickly with anyone who is willing to listen, and while this can make fast friends for those willing to engage, it can also make other people quite uncomfortable.
You tend to latch on to your beliefs and can be very stubborn when someone challenges you. Enjoy the debate! Try to relax and have a fun, diverse conversation with those who disagree with you. Air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius will love staying up all night talking together and sharing unique ideas and dreams.
Earth signs, however, are the yin to your yang.
So does that have a similar effect on the houses as on signs? But of course, there are always 12 house cusps. I hope that helps! Thinking more on this. Theoretically, I consider your example Venus, at the doorway between two rooms i. Maria — Heh. I have my Jupiter intercepted in my 12th. What house system do you prefer?
Excellent explanation April. I use equal houses because of the issues with other house systems so I never use intercepted signs. Similarly with planets that sit at the very edge of a house, I only interpret them for the house they are actually in however close to the cusp of the next house they are. Thanks, Leah — I can definitely see the beauty of equal houses! It drives me mad! Hi, i enjoy reading, thanx for posting. But also must say that i am born on cusp and i am so special : Ya, and my venus is also in TWO houses- i told u: sooooo special :.
I have cap rising with intercepted aquarius. This explanation of behind the scenes with the actual cusp sign as PR makes more sense. Technically she is a Scorpio, though a couple of hour later and she would be a Saggitarius! Some feel that planets in intercepted signs may suffer from the same disadvantage. Zane Stein, on the other hand, has written that planets in intercepted signs are actually more powerful but that we might be less consciously aware of how to use them.
Thank you! I apologize, i had forgotten i had posed my question on your site. I returned to the book and reread with more attention and focus on simply receiving her wisdom-not looking for my answer. On a side note, thank you for the article on being a stranger in your own home. My skin is not my own, as frank Herbert also assured me. Again, thank you, thank you for your attention. I think it probably means that people initially experience you as a Taurus, but very quickly encounter Gemini and probably get a little confused. Hey…Something has been bugging me.
So on my 6th house I have Sagittarius 1. Always felt I wanted to tell my Sagittarius friends what to do than to bond with them. Or a work related thing. But I was wondering if it does have an effect on our relationship that makes it seem like work rather than a relationship. I hope that helps….
Sorry if i had the wording kinda weird, i just learned about this. My birth chart has one signs skipped and others repeated.
That would most likely put scorpio out of my houses. I am still confused how one can deny energy influences being born on a cusp between Sun Signs, except cusp of houses…… I believe that the energy influences on a cusp makes sense. For example I am on the cusp of Sagittarius and Capricorn.
Although my sun sign is Capricorn I definitely resemble and relate to Sagittarius more so than Capricorn. I have other friends that are Taurus. My Aries Taurus cusp friend is very much both Aries and Taurus. Also, the ruling planet of the sign adjoining your Sun might be prominently placed in the chart, or that sign might be rising or on another angle of your chart.
I had a full chart reading done and I came away a little confused.
I have sun in the 12th house in cancer with leo rising. The astrologer said I had an intercepted chart? Did she mean my sun was intercepted? I think i need a new reading to better understand these placements. Hi Jen.
I suppose those interpretations of the Sun intercepted could apply to some people, though many other factors in the birth chart could negate them. I have my Uranus in the 1st house and I think its in the 28 degree…which would put it really close to my second house……. When a planet is in one house but within a few degrees of another, many astrologers interpret it as being in the next house. I'm your host, astrologer and author April Elliott Kent. I write books and essays, teach astrology, and talk to people about their lives. Donations gratefully accepted.
Cusps and Signs Part of the problem is the term cusp. Signs, degrees, and house cusps Think of the chart wheel as a big ribbon with all degrees of the zodiac lining the inside like dots on wallpaper.
Using house cusps Some astrologers feel that when a planet falls within a certain number of degrees of a house cusp, it makes its presence felt in both the houses that flank that cusp. The rest of the house cusps are a convenient fiction that give astrologers something to fight about over drinks.
They express themselves in a more indirect and subtle way, using the sign on the cusp as a PR agent. Planets close to a house cusp may be interpreted as being in either or both houses.
