Astrological cusps occur when a birthday falls on the time when the sun leaves one sign and enters another.
For instance, if you were born on June’s cusp, the Cusp of Magic (June 17-23), you may technically be a Cancer, but you may feel like a Gemini.
A cusp is, in general, a point of transition between two different states or curves.
Zodiac cusps represent the twilight days between the signs, where one is rising as the other sets, but according to the Astrotwins: they might just be another astrology myth.
What do they discover about cusps?
In the 20th century, newspaper and magazine horoscopes became very popular and introduced the ideas of cusps to the mainstream.
In Ancient times, people used to believe that the Sun would travel across all zodiac constellations and stood a month around each one of those.
Back to the second Century b.C. they observed that this coincidence wasn’t constant and immutable at all.
In fact, while equinoxes were proceeding their path over the centuries, the deviation of that coincidence grew up to 32 degrees, which is a wider angle than the one corresponding to the extension of the logitude of each constellation.
This means that it was indeed impossible that the sun could be in two constellations per time, affirmed the Astrotwins.
There is an exact moment when the switch happens.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that we can’t figure out some similarities from different signs.
After all, that’s what a birth chart, or natal chart, is all about.
This kind of maps shows you where all the planets were in their journey around the Sun at the exact moment you were born.
This means that you can read about your strenghts or weeknesses, even about your soul growth opportunities.
Maps are usually structured in Houses, which of course have their own meaning.
The first House for instance, also known as the Ascendant, determines physical development and body shape, moreover it can determine even characteristic behaviours or somebody’s temper.
Besides each planet has its own energy, properties and meanings and people believe there is an actual relationship between a planet and a zodiac sign.
In fact, a planet placed into a peculiar sign might be more or less powerful.
These sort of influences can be sorted as such:
–exaltation, the planet fully realizes its nature;
–exaltation, the planet’s power is at its highest point;
–exile the planet realizes a little of its power, in a less impulsive way;
–fall when the incompatibility between the planet and the sign reaches its highest point.

Don’t freak out as soon as you realize on which exact sign were you born, because we are human beings and we are all made of millions of fragments of very different influences: that’s what makes us so special.
