Full Answer

The zodiac is composed of 12 houses, each ruled by a constellation. A cusp is an imaginary line that separates two adjacent signs of the zodiac. Many astrologers believe that those born on the cusp exhibit personality traits of both signs. A person born on a Scorpio-Sagittarius cusp may possess the determined, aggressive, passionate character of a Scorpio combined with the optimistic, adaptable and action-oriented traits of a Sagittarius. Because adjacent signs of the zodiac are always ruled by elements that do not merge well, it can be difficult to reconcile the contradictory traits.

Astrology is an ancient practice. According to the American Federation of Astrologers, the Babylonians created astrology and used their charts to predict the cycle of seasons and other celestial occurrences. During that period of history, there was no distinction between astrology and astronomy. The descendants of the Babylonians later introduced astrology to the Greeks and the Romans, where its popularity spread. Although no longer considered to be a science, astrology continues to be popular with certain segments of society.

    What does it mean when you're born on the cusp?

    A:

    Being born on the cusp of two different astrological signs can be said to have different effects on an individual; according to some astrologers, being born on a cusp imparts special characteristics, while others may say that it simply points to a more complex personality that blends characteristics of each of the signs on either side of the cusp. Some astrologers have even gone so far as to designate special significance to each cusp, with names such as "the cusp of beauty" for the Virgo-Libra cusp (September 19-25) and "the cusp of magic" for the Gemini-Cancer cusp (June 17-23).

  • Q:

    How do you win over a Sagittarius?

    A:

    Though every individual is different, astrologers may argue that there are specific techniques that can be used to make a good impression on a Sagittarius, including using physical attributes, displaying an ability to change and showing athletic ability. Astrologers recommend that people who are trying to engage a Sagittarius in a romantic relationship should pursue intellectually stimulating, energetic activities such as attending an outdoor concert, going dancing or proposing an athletic date such as running or canoeing. Because Sagittarius is a fire sign, those with romantic aspirations may also want to play a bit hard to get to engage this sign's purported love of the chase.
