Cancer Cusps of Birth
Persons born "on the line" between two Zodiac Signs of Gemini-Cancer or Cancer-Leo partake of qualities found in both Signs or, more strictly speaking, have a blend of traits that may compose an individual nature. Due to variations in astrological calendars, this may became apparent during the last few days of a departing Sign, but the "cusp" (as it is termed) pertains chiefly to the first week of the incoming Sign. While the new Sign is gaining its ascendancy, the influences of the old will persist but gradually loses its hold day-by-day until, by the seventh day, the new Sign is in complete control.
Gemini-Cancer Cusp of Magic
If you were born on the Gemini-Cancer cusp, from about June 17 to June 23, you’re a magical individual! The energies of Gemini and Cancer combine to create truly inspirational human beings - both lighthearted and fun, but also caring and devoted. Emotions can run high for those born on "The Cusp of Magic", but with love and affection from plenty of friends and family, it’s likely most will lead an active, stimulating and happy life.
Strengths: Fun, flirty, curious, intellectual, affectionate, caring, devoted, sensitive and inspirational.
Weaknesses: Moody, overly emotional, scatterbrained, selfish, depressive and self-destructive.
How Gemini-Cancer energy works together: Gemini’s speedy and breezy energy combines with Cancer’s slower and more thoughtful nature to create people who are both light and bright. Gemini’s restlessness is nicely balanced by Cancer’s sensitivity, resulting in a well-rounded soul.
What they love: Great big books about history and philosophy, trying out new recipes, hosting dinner parties and playing with children (after all, they’re kids at heart, too).
What they need: Sensitive and affectionate Gemini-Cancer cuspers need someone to love! Without a special someone to nurture, they can become moody or depressed.
Advice: Thicken your skin! Avoid depressive or self-destructive impulses by learning to think less about your own needs and more about others when the going gets tough.
Cancer-Leo Cusp of Oscillation
If you are a Cancer and Leo, you may sometimes find it hard to live with the inner turmoil created by the conflicting characteristics of these signs. Cancer is gentle and sensitive, while Leo is one of the dramatic signs of the Zodiac. There will be a lot of ups and downs to cope with.
The opposing elements of Fire and Water can result in Cancer/Leos being shy one minute and then totally outgoing the next. This can lead to others thinking that whichever way you go, you are totally self-absorbed as you veer from ultra-sensitive to totally insensitive. So you have a constant battle to try to level out between the two.
On the plus side, this Zodiac combination makes for very creative people with a very caring nature. Both make great parents and traditional family life is very important to them. They both have a natural ability to act and their love of the spotlight means that many Cancer and Leo combinations can be found on the stage and screen.
They also have a strong ability to see projects through to the finish. Leos are natural leaders and Cancerians are natural organisers – a winning combination, particularly as both tend to be popular. Friendly, sociable, loyal, fun-loving and romantic, they live life with enthusiasm, which makes them a lot of friends.
