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.
