Many of us relate our personalities and preferences according to our Zodiac signs. Yet if you are born on the edge – on the cusp, sometimes our sign is one of transition rather than completely belonging to one or the other. If you are born on 21st of December are you Sagittarius or are you Capricorn? You feel both energies in you, yet you can’t shake the feeling that you don’t belong in either one of them. There is a reason for that.
You feel that traits of both these signs exist within you, but you also have a strong feeling that you are not both. If you were born on the cusp, then your energy is a mix, and it makes sense to read about both signs.
Read below to find what being born on the cusp means for you:
