What is cusp in Astrology –

In astrology, the ‘cusp’ is the time period that separates two zodiac signs. As the Sun approaches this time period, we enter a transitional phase.

Anyone born within such a period (overlapping time period between two zodiac signs) is said to have been born ‘on the cusp.’

Here’s where things get interesting. As we know, birth month plays a major role in defining one’s personality. Individuals born on the cusp feel the influence of both signs on either side of their birthday. For example, A person born on 19th January may have characteristics of both Capricorn and Aquarius.

Sun Sign Elements – 

  • Fire represents action and creativity which is the primary features of the signs of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.
  • Water symbolizes emotions which underlies the signs of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
  • Air corresponds to the intellect which is the dominating force for Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini.
  • Earth stands for substance and practicality which is the hallmark of Sun Signs Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo.

 

Sun Sign Modalities – 

The four elements (fire, air, earth, water) form the backbone of all Western astrology. So 12 zodiac signs are required?

Each of the four elements can be expressed in three different styles. These modes of expression are called the modalities. Astrology follows the four seasons corresponding to the four elements. Each season is 3 months long and comprises a beginning, middle, and end. The three modalities (cardinal, fixed, mutable,) represent those three parts of the seasons (beginning, middle, and end).
Various modalities represent different parts of a season. for example, The beginning of winter is not as chilly as the middle. The middle of summer is usually hotter than the end.

  • The cardinal modality corresponds to the beginning of the season and the power of initiation.
  • The fixed modality represents the middle of the season and the power of sustaining.
  • The mutable modality marks the end of the season and the power of change.
