Have you, at times, felt that you are the combination of traits from two distinct Zodiac signs? Like you may be a Scorpio, but the personality traits of some other zodiac define you? Similarly, some zodiac signs are born on a cusp and have two individual zodiac sign traits. It is possible that you are born as a Sagittarius but can also relate to a Scorpio?s characteristics. A number of people are born at the very start or the end of a zodiac sign and we know it can be tricky when people are curious to know their sign.
(It?s confusing and we get you!)
When one is born within a few days of the Sun?s move from one zodiac sign to the adjacent one means the individual is born on the cusp. And thus, one?s traits can be influenced by two different Zodiac.
Before proceeding in-depth, let us have an idea about the zodiac cusps. The Sun?s cusp period starts at 29 degrees and 30 minutes (of one sign) and goes through 0 degrees 30 minutes (of the next sign). An accurate birth time with the calculated natal chart determines if a person is born on the cusp. Due to slight shifts, its date varies from year to year. To find out where the natal Sun is located, the Sun sign calculator helps a lot.
In astrology, a cusp is an imaginary line separating a pair of consecutive signs. The solar disc is approximately half a degree in diameter. The position makes it possible for the Sun to mount the cusp. The movement of the sun makes it to be partly in the previous sign and partly in the next. Cusp refers to an imaginary line dividing both the next zodiac signs and houses. There are two different realities associated with you if you are born on the cusps.
In layman terms, if you are born around three days before or after the change, then you are on the cusp with blended personality traits.
How does cusp affect you?
Taking birth on the cusps helps an individual to possess personality traits from even the neighboring sign. The energies of the two signs may clash with one another. As a result, an individual attains a number of unique qualities.

Being born on the cusps often makes one feel mysterious. Which side is stronger depends on where the Sun is inclined more relative to the zero points (of the next sign). An accurate birth time helps determine the rising sign. Consulting a professional astrologer can help an individual unlock the mystery of their birth on a cusp.
