Leo Cusps of Birth
Persons born "on the line" between two Zodiac Signs of Cancer-Leo or Leo-Virgo 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.
Cancer-Leo Cusp of Oscillation
If you were born on the Cancer-Leo cusp, from about July 19 to July 25, you have some challenges to face. When you combine the sensitive nature of Cancer and the expressive drama of Leo, it results in some contrary elements to your personality. Your life may be one of extreme ups and downs!
Cancer-Leo cuspers can be sensitive and shy one moment, and theatrical drama queens the next. This is because they’re born of a conflicting mix of water (Cancer) and fire (Leo), which will take discipline to mix successfully. If you can learn to center yourself and find more balance, your life will be filled with lots of love and lasting relationships.
Strengths: Loving, devoted, expressive, creative, cheerful, passionate.
Weaknesses: Self-absorbed, insensitive, dramatic, dependent, volatile.
How Cancer and Leo energy work together: Cancer’s sensitivity doesn’t always mix well with Leo’s bold nature. These cuspers need to be careful of oscillating between extreme highs and lows, and of being either too sensitive or completely insensitive. If you can learn to let Cancer’s soft side tone down Leo’s outrageousness, you’ll find more balance and peace.
What they love: Pendulums. Just kidding! These cuspers are in love with love. Because they are so loving and devoted, they develop long lasting relationships and often have big families.
What they need: A purpose greater than themselves! Cancer-Leo cuspers need to find balance, and in order to do so they need to get outside of themselves. Helping others or devoting time to a worthy cause is a great way to find peace and focus on something other than themselves.
Advice: Try to find a comfortable middle ground between the two extremes of your personality. Try activities like yoga or volunteer work to keep you connected to others so you don’t become too self-involved.
Leo-Virgo Cusp of Exposure
Like the cusp of Cancer and Leo, Leo and Virgo can be another complicated combination. Leo is one of those larger than life characters, which, if you consider how reserved Virgo can be, is bound to lead to internal turmoil. The Element of Virgo is Earth and Leo is Fire. Will earth smother the fire or will the fire continue to burn despite it?
The result is that sometimes the Leo/Virgo will be full of beans and the next minute they will have reverted to not wanting to see anyone, while they do their own thing. Leo has a huge need to create. Virgos combine their skills and talents together for the good of others. This results in a combination that has huge energy and ambition to be successful in whatever they choose to become involved in.
They have great business acumen because of their meticulous attention to detail combined with their ability to stick to a well thought out organised routine. They tend to be popular and even inspiring to others. Although the Virgo side of their nature can make them want to keep their own company at times, Leo and Virgo cusps are friendly and sociable. They love to have fun and live life with enthusiasm, throwing themselves into whatever they choose to do.
The natural leadership of these people and their administrative prowess help ensure that their projects are successful. They are real “givers” and one of the most caring Zodiac sign combinations.
