Q. What does it mean if I’m born on the cusp?
A. Being born on the cusp means that you were born on a day when the Sun changes sign.
This happens 12 times throughout the year when the Sun moves from one sign of the zodiac to the next. Some people automatically think that if they’re born on the cusp they are a mass of contradictions but this isn’t the case.
In fact, if you know exactly what time you were born, then you can work out what Sun sign you are. For example, if a baby was born this year on 22nd September 2012 s/he would have the Sun in Virgo born before 2:49pm GMT and the Sun in Libra born after 2:49pm GMT.
If you are born on a day when the Sun changes sign and you would like to know what your Sun sign is, then contact me and I’ll let you know. Any good astrologer will have an ephemeris close to hand which gives the exact times when the Sun and all the other planets change sign.

I was born on November 24th 1999. I was born in Klaipeda, Lithuania at 1 AM in the morning. I am trying to figure out if I have some Scorpio and Sagittarius combo because I don’t completely relate to the Sagittarius sign. I looked at my moons and some other things but the cusp is what I’m confused on.

Thank you for your comment. Yes, you are a Sun Sagittarius but your Sun is conjunct Pluto, Scorpio’s planet and your Mercury – communication/thinking is in Scorpio – hence you identify more with Scorpio than Sagittarius. Also when you’re reading your horoscope, read your Ascendant sign, Virgo. Hope that helps.

Friends say i am more a Gemini than Taurus…
Sally Kirkman says
Sun Taurus! Your Mercury (communication) is strongly place in Gemini so that may be what comes across.
I was born on September 23rd 1980 at 5:18 am. What am I?
If you let me know your place of birth, I can let you know.
Thanks for providing your place of birth. You are a Sun Libra.
