Most of us know their Zodiac sign. However, if you were born on one of the days when the Sun moved from one sign to another, you are considered to be born at the turn of these two signs and represent a Zodiac cusp.
Cusp is a border between two astrological signs. Cusp signs combine the traits of both signs. This happens because birth dates are ever changing. It depends upon the Sun’s movement. From astrology’s point of view the Sun’s position is very significant, especially when we talk about cusp astrology.

What will you get if you combine the energy of a skillful Capricorn and an eccentric Aquarius? You will get an absolutely unique personality. Being born on the cusp of Mystery you will never get bored. But even being too expressive or shy, a big part of emotional experience will be kept inside. You have bright dreams and rich fantasies, which you need to develop, if you want to lead a happier life.
You tend to lead an extraordinary way of life and sometimes you fail to balance two different sides of your personality: you are reserved, but sociable; conservative, but ingenious; want to be safe, but independent.
If you were born on the Capricorn and Aquarius cusp, you are very sociable and ready to talk about different themes that develop intellect. You work hard and devote yourself to realizing your dreams. Though it leads to success, it may be difficult for you to start a relationship. The reason for it is your desire to be independent and bent for being too critical and egoistic. You just need to show your sense of humor, devotion and friendliness to make friends.
