How Personality Traits Are Defined Based On Being A “Cusp”

Most of us have the accurate zodiac signs to guide us based on our birthday dates. But what happens to people whose birthday date falls between two different zodiac signs?

If you were born within a few days of the Sun's move from one zodiac sign to the other, it means that you were born "on the cusp". People whose birthdays fall in this category are said to have the influence from both the zodiac signs they belong to.

The Cancer-Leo Cusp

People belonging to this group are said to be sensitive and shy at one moment, and are the theatrical drama queens at the very next moment.
