Cusps and Signs

“I am totally stymied by cusps and interceptions,” confided a reader in a recent email. Let’s see if we can sort out this out for you, shall we?

Part of the problem is the term cusp. Specifically, misuse of the term by people who greedily lay claim to two Sun signs. You may not realize this, but when you talk about “your sign,” you’re actually saying, “The sign of the zodiac through which the Sun appeared to be moving at the time of my birth.” (Didn’t know you were so smart, did you?)

Problem is, because the earth’s annual journey around the Sun doesn’t take precisely one calendar year, the date the Sun moves from one sign to another changes (within one day) from year to year. So if you were born on March 20, then yeah, you might be a Pisces or you might be an Aries.

But let’s be clear: When you were born, the Sun was in one sign, or it was in the next. The only way to know for sure which one is to find out what time you were born and calculate your birth chart. Now yes, if you were born within, say, an hour of the moment when the center of the Sun actually enters a sign, then okay – maybe you could make the case that you are “born on the cusp.” Otherwise, one Sun sign per customer!

And now for something completely different: Cusps and Houses

Since most astrologers wouldn’t be caught dead anywhere near this “born on the cusp” business, when we use the term “cusps” you can be pretty sure that we’re not talking about signs at all. Rather, we’re referring to the lines that separate houses in the horoscope, much as fences separate properties from one another:

And so on, proceeding counter-clockwise, for a total of twelve. When astrologers refer to house systems, we’re talking about different methods of cutting up the sky, and where the cusps should go. And we can get pretty animated on the subject.

Four of the cusps have special names. Sometimes called the angles of the chart, they are:

  • First House cusp: Ascendant
  • Fourth House cusp: IC or Nadir
  • Seventh House cusp: Descendant
  • Tenth House cusp: MC or Midheaven

The houses of the horoscope symbolize areas of the sky. For instance, the cusp of the first house represents the eastern horizon, and the cusp of the seventh house represents the western horizon. The cusp of the tenth house represents the highest point in the horizon any planet can reach at a given location, and the cusp of the fourth house represents its opposite point.

So the first, fourth, seventh, and tenth houses actually have a basis in physical reality. As for the rest… look up in the sky, right now; do you see lines there? (I sincerely hope the answer is no.)

It’s true: House cusps are fictional. Convenient, but open to interpretation.

Signs, degrees, and house cusps

Think of the chart wheel as a big ribbon with all 360 degrees of the zodiac lining the inside like dots on wallpaper. The twelve house cusps are like hands on a clock attached to the middle of the circle, each pointing to a specific dot, or degree, on the wallpaper. If you were born with 15 degrees of Sagittarius rising, that means the first house “hand” was pointing at the middle of Sagittarius. If you were born near the equator, the 2nd house “hand” would be pointing at about the middle of Capricorn, the 3rd house at the middle of Aquarius, and so forth.

The catch: The farther north or south you were born of the equator, and depending on which house system you use, things can get wonky. Some houses can be very large, some very small. Perhaps Sagittarius is on the cusps of both your first and second houses, then Capricorn gets skipped altogether and the third house has Aquarius on the cusp. This is called an interception. Capricorn is still there – it’s just that all 30 degrees of the sign are hidden in the second house, with no clock hand pointing at them. Intercepted signs are like silent partners of the houses that they’re in; the sign on the house cusp does the PR work, while the intercepted sign works behind the scenes.

Next: Can planets be “on the cusp”?

Using house cusps

Some astrologers feel that when a planet falls within a certain number of degrees of a house cusp, it makes its presence felt in both the houses that flank that cusp. How many degrees? Depends on which astrologer you ask – some say as few as three degrees, others as many as ten.

Me, I’m torn about the whole idea. On the one hand, it takes us right back into dreaded “on the cusp” territory, with the same people who are inclined to claim ownership of two signs now claiming that “my Venus is in TWO houses.” Eyeroll.

On the other hand, as mentioned above, houses and their cusps are largely imaginary anyway, and other than the angles, it doesn’t make sense to get too rigid about where one ends and the other begins.

In summary…

  • “Cusps” refer to the division between signs of the zodiac or houses in the horoscope.
  • Don’t talk about being “born on the cusp.”
  • The cusps of the 1st, 4th, 7th, and 10th houses – also called “angles – have special names and a basis in physical reality.
  • The rest of the house cusps are a convenient fiction that give astrologers something to fight about over drinks.
  • Intercepted signs are those that are fully contained in one house and don’t appear on a house cusp. They express themselves in a more indirect and subtle way, using the sign on the cusp as a PR agent.
  • Planets close to a house cusp may be interpreted as being in either or both houses.

10 Reasons Valentine’s Babies Have The Worst Holiday Birthday

If your birthday is on February 14, you’re probably used to hearing “Aw! A Valentine’s Day baby!” every time you tell someone when your birthday is.

According to our birthday horoscope, individuals born on Valentine’s Day are known for their dry humor and wit.

We’re extroverts who love to be social, but we also value spending time alone.

We’re known for being independent and brutally honest. We are intelligent people with killer communication skills.

High five, February 14-ers!

However, all Valentine’s Day babies know a February 14 birthday isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

We roll our eyes at the people born in late December who complain people forget their birthdays because they’re “too close to Christmas.”

Cry us a river.

Valentine’s Day babies like us know we have the worst holiday birthday of the year.

Here are 10 reasons why:

1. Our birthday comes on the one day of the year “chicks before dicks” or “bros over hoes” doesn’t apply.

There are 366 possible days to have a birthday.

Yet somehow, we ended up with the only one our friends can understandably blow us off on.

The worst part is, our friends don’t even feel the need to make up an excuse.

We’re just expected to understand that their significant others are obviously more important than we are.

2. The majority of people we encounter on our birthday are really annoying.

If people are single, they’re complaining.

If they’re in relationships, they’re on mushy dates.

3. If we’re single, it’s a double whammy.

Everyone knows Valentine’s Day can be kind of a bummer when you’re a regular single person surrounded by lovebirds.

This is 10 times worse when it’s also your birthday.

4. If we aren’t single, we still have to buy someone else a present.


How is that even allowed?

5. The “What are we?” situation is significantly intensified.

You know when you’re “kind of” in a relationship, and you’re both sweating as the holiday approaches because you don’t know how to handle it?

Do you buy your new fling a birthday gift?

Are you two going to go out to dinner, or will he freak out like “The Office’s” Ryan did when he realized he hooked up with Kelly on February 13?

Not-so-serious relationships have a tendency to conveniently expire just before Valentine’s Day, so good luck holding on if he’s not sure he’s into you.

He just wants to avoid having to buy you two gifts.

6. Our newsfeeds are full of photos of V-Day stuff instead of B-Day stuff.

Listen, girl from my high school English class, I don’t want to see that your boyfriend sent flowers to your office until I’ve received a notification that you’ve written, “Happy birthday!” on my wall first.

7. We have the fear of being proposed to on a holiday.

We don’t care if you’re Prince Charming himself.

If you try to turn one more special occasion into a holiday hybrid, we’re out.

8. People think we love stuff with hearts on it.

If your birthday happened to fall on Arbor Day, would you want us to buy you things with leaves all over them?


Then please spare us the horror of having to look thrilled when we open a jewelry box and find a cubic zirconia heart necklace.

9. If we’re hungover on February 15, people assume it’s because we’re emotional messes, not birthday party animals.

The sunglasses we’re rocking indoors on February 15 make people assume the night before was spent crying into a bottle of wine, over a Katherine Heigl movie.

Nobody’s going to give you the benefit of the doubt and think you tore up the town for your birthday.

10. We spend the entire month leading up to our birthday complaining, which really annoys our friends and family.

Blame it on astrology.

Valentine’s Day babies naturally have a dry sense of humor, so most of the complaining we do are poorly received jokes.

Our friends and families love to remind us we usually have a pretty good birthday, and we should probably stop complaining.

However, we probably never will.

How the Month You Were Born Affects Your Personality, According to Science

Let’s agree on one thing first: Astrology is gibberish — gibberish with a nice line of charm bracelets, maybe, but gibberish all the same. Its fundamental premise — that the combined gravity of all of the planets at the moment you’re born determines your personality — is all by itself its undoing.

As Newton knew, the gravity of any massive object is inversely proportional to the square of its distance. Even for a giant planet like Neptune, which is 2.7 billion miles (4.4 billion km) away, the amount of gravitational pull it exerted on you at birth was…let’s see…times 2.7…divided by 1.1…carry the 2…got it! Zip. So whether you’re a Saggiquarius or Tauricorn or whatever they’re called, forget it.

But just because the day of your birth makes no difference doesn’t mean the same thing is true for your season of birth. Here, scientists are building up a small but increasingly persuasive body of evidence that there may indeed be some cause and effect at work.

There are countless things that affect a baby’s development in the womb. Maternal nutrition certainly plays a role, with babies born during famines tending to be frailer than babies born in boom times. Even in the developed world, where food is plentiful, maternal diets that are poor in protein or vitamin C or vitamin D can affect brain or heart or bone development. Seasonal viruses — particularly the flu — can affect maternal health and fetal development too. Gestation during wintertime, with its short days and long nights, can cause seasonal affective disorder (SAD) in mothers, with low serotonin levels in the maternal brain potentially leading to similar shortfalls in the baby.

Even after birth, babies continue to be shaped powerfully by the world around them. One 2010 study conducted in mice found that mouse pups born and weaned in simulated winter light adjusted less well to a change to summer light, exhibiting poorer feeding habits and activity levels. Mice born and weaned in summer light had no such problems adjusting to winter conditions. Subsequent study of the brains of the mice found that a gene that regulates circadian rhythms was overall less active in the winter-born mice.

A flurry of recent studies in the last half-dozen years have sought to extend these findings to humans, with researchers profiling the temperaments of college students and adults and then tracing back to their birth seasons, looking for broad seasonal patterns. Consistently — if preliminarily — they’ve found them. (Caution: Your results may vary.)

Spring: Congratulations, March, April and May babies, you score high on the hyperthymia scale — which is actually good. Hyperthymia is general optimism — the ability to see every down as a prelude to an up, every market crash as a run-up to a boom. But that comes at a price: spring babies are also more susceptible to the precise opposite of hyperthymia: clinical depression. Ground zero for the condition — according to a massive study of 58,000 subjects in the U.K. in 2012 — is among people born in May. November babies have the lowest depression rates.

Summer: It’s mostly glad tidings for June, July and August babies. No SAD for you — at least nothing caused by the light levels after your birth, though there may be some impact from mom having carried you in December, January and February. Summer babies have some of the same hyperthymic characteristics as spring babies, but that can be offset by cyclothymia — rapid cycling between high and low moods. Still, that’s probably not a warning sign of bipolar disorder; bipolar diagnoses are lowest among babies born in August.

Fall: For people who believe in astrology (we’ve mentioned that it’s hooey, right?) the general equanimity of fall babies seems to provide evidence that at least the sign of Libra — the well-balanced scales — has something going for it. It doesn’t of course, but whether the cause is the bountiful nutrients available at harvest time, or the fact that the long nights and seasonal illness of winter have not yet descended, people born in fall not only enjoy low levels of depression, but are similarly less likely to develop bipolar disorder. The one glitch in the autumn-born: they do have a tendency to irritability.

Winter: Buckle up, babies, things could get rough. Among the challenges facing people with winter birthdates are higher levels of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, SAD and depression. That’s a nasty handful, but there are a few compensations: winter babies are less irritable than those born in fall. What’s more, according to an admittedly small 2015 study of 300 celebrities, January and February are the right months to be born if you want to be famous since those months correlate with creativity and imaginative problem-solving.

None of this means that parents should try to time births for particular seasons. And none of it means that birth month is a remotely conclusive thing. There are plenty of cranky pessimists born in March and plenty of October babies whose scales are always out of balance. Ultimately, your personality is much less about the season you’re born than the things you experience in all of the many seasons of life that follow.

February 16 Zodiac: Aquarius

February 16 Zodiac Birthday Horoscope Personality of the alchemist

Your greatest challenge is: to resist being a know-all

The way forward is: to understand that just as you have learned from your mistakes, sometimes other people need to learn from theirs.

February 16 Love Horoscope:

February 20 to March 20

This relationship is powerful and passionate because you both have an intuitive understanding of what the other needs.

February 16 Zodiac Luck maker:

Send your inner critic on holiday

Every time you hear your inner critic, visualize it resting in a deckchair on a sunny beach. The more you send your inner critic on holiday, the more you start to love and value yourself.

People born on February 16 Zodiac have the ability to transform even the most difficult of experiences into something positive. There is a touch of the alchemist about them in their ability to see the bigger picture, bring together all the relevant information and cut right to the essence or truth of a situation.

It is likely that people born on this day have at some point in their lives experienced some form of upheaval, trauma or setback. Whatever the nature of this was, they have taken it in their stride, learned from it and grown stronger. The positive side is that it has given them great confidence; even if they sometimes appear quiet on the outside, underneath one can sense an inner strength and brightness. They also have an astute understanding of others and how the world works; rarely, if ever, do they miss a trick. The downside is that they can sometimes appear cold and detached, and their bluntness or impatience with the weaknesses of others may come across as arrogance. Others may at times resent the imperious manner that these people possess, but more often than not people end up admiring their cleverness and ability to know exactly what to say, what to do and how to do it.

If they can learn to control their bossiness, their tremendous capacity to be realistic and intuitive, both in their assessment of others and their own abilities, makes them potentially great leaders. Around the age of thirty-four there is a turning point when their ambition and focus take center stage. It is particularly important at this point in their life that they become more conscious of their emotions, rather than masking them with a bossy or imperious manner or, in some cases, with emotional reserve and detachment.

When people born on this day are able to strike a balance between their inner and outer life, they really are capable of striking gold both personally and professionally, which is after all every true alchemist’s dream.

Arrogance, blunt, detached

At your best

Lazing about doesn’t suit them, although they do need to make sure they get plenty of rest and relaxation. They would benefit considerably from meditation and breathing exercises to help them strike that important balance between their inner and outer life.

February 16 Zodiac Career: Born reviewers

These people have a fantastic eye for detail and an ability to see the bigger picture; this makes them fantastic editors, journalists, reviewers, film critics, lecturers, or teachers. Alternatively, they may be drawn toward a career in business, Banking and the stock market or careers in which they can express their intuitive creativity such as art, entertainment, charity work, and social reform.

You should avoid: harmful ideas. While it’s good to have an open mind, there are ideas out there that can corrode you. These are mentally toxic ideas.

Always Think Twice About Dating a Cancer

People who were born as an Aquarius on 1st February have a strong intellect, but they’re also far more romantic than people give them credit for.

This can make plenty of sparks fly when they meet other star signs more known for their emotional intensity – such as the Cancer.

Yet Cancer people have many insecurities to go along with their emotional excess, and this can quickly prove quite draining and debilitating to the 1st February soul – a spirit that’s more about freedom, looking on the bright side and rolling with the punches.

There’s an undercurrent or despair and negativity to how Cancer people view life, through no fault of their own, but it meshes very poorly with how Aquarius people prefer to move ever forwards in life.

Cancer people also have a bit of a possessive side, and this can really feel cloying to an individual born on 1st February, who is all about personal freedom and exploring oneself.

Final Thought for the February 1 Zodiac –

Aquarius natives born on February 1 need to focus on boundaries as far as their ideas and ideals are concerned. It’s one thing to be open minded, it’s another to be just open minded for being open minded sic.

This aspect of your personality must serve some sort of greater personal good. Otherwise, it might lead to serious problems, miscommunications, and other issues down the road.

While it’s good that you can entertain many different perspectives, ultimately, you would have to make a decision. Ideas, after all, lead to certain places. Ideas are not equal.

They are often not neutral. Avoid your tendency to remain on defense and affect a non-committal pose.

In certain situations, you need to stand based on your principle. However, this presupposes that you know what your principles are.

Unfortunately, there are many people who are born on February 1st, who are so open minded that they start questioning their previously deeply held views and this can lead to all sorts of confusion and problems down the road.

Friends and Lovers

Because of their tendency to cultivate impressive friendships, February 3 men and women are sometimes seen as opportunists.

February 3rd Zodiac

02/03 Birthday – Zodiac Information


Date: February 3rd
Color: Maya Blue
In One Word: Expression
Shape: Two Infinite Parallel Lines
Strength: Sharing
Weakness: Hiding
Most Compatabile With: Gemini

February 3rd speaks of one’s ability to connect the genuine truth with their heart, and instead of running away from problems at hand, face them head on. The search for balance between emotions and reason is a mission to embark on. The mirror of truth that others see in hearts of those born on this date, won’t ever settle for dishonesty and delusion.

Planetary Row

(Pluto) – JUPITER – (Pluto) – MOON

The story of those born on February 3rd revolves around their search for home and a place they belong in, and this inner need to feel at peace and in touch with their truth will often make them travelers and researchers of all sorts. When we combine this fact with the fact that they are enriched with powerful curiosity, we will see that they have a hard time finding the state of balance and staying in one place for too long. They will either hide from their feelings, or get carried away by them, and the only thing that can keep them on track and moving in one direction is a strong sense of purpose shining in their emotional world.

Sabian Symbol

The Sabian symbol for Aquarius representatives born on February 3rd of a leap year and two years preceding it:

“A Train Entering a Tunnel”

The Sabian symbol for Aquarius representatives born on February 3rd of a year following a leap year:

“Two Lovebirds Sitting on a Fence and Singing Happily”

These symbols seemingly speak of entirely different things, but in fact, they are leading to one another. Only after a person has been through a dark tunnel and resurfaced where light is found, will they find someone to mirror them and show them why some romances and relationships never worked out. This is a loud date, for neither a train nor those singing birds are quiet and reserved, and you will see that expression pours out of those born at this time, either as a working puff or as a love song that the world needs to hear without any taboos or limitations.


A person born on February 3rd has incredible ideas and need to learn how to express them in the right way, soothing to their heart and in sync with their emotional preparedness. It is their purpose to show what they know, be practical and express how they feel, through any form of speech, writing, or drawing. They have something to say, and whether it is one piece of information that needs to be repeated to a mass of people, or a bunch of different facts that only one person has to learn, their messages will be delivered in this lifetime. Every inhibition standing in the way of positive self-expression can make them feel depressed and as if the world they live in is a hopeless place.

Love and Emotions

Love life of those born on the 3rd of February can be quite an adventure. Their emotions move with the tides and their relationships have purpose and meaning, for however long they might last. They aren’t the most stable of partners and might choose to be in parallel relationships, or live in a conviction that love should be free of prejudice and free of monogamy. Still, the idealist they carry within won’t let them rest until they find a rush of love for one person that will put all others to shade.

The story of Moon and Jupiter always speaks of grand emotions, healing and feelings of true love, and we will see that these individuals have a need to give all they own to others, sharing their compassion and love with those their heart chooses. They will mend their own wounds by helping partners in trouble, in need of their generosity, a kind word, or protection. The best way for them to heal their deeply emotional world is to help others heal theirs.

It should be added they can also be very practical and develop significant financial capacity. But then, they can grow very attached to money and material income.

They show perfect understanding for any human weakness. They can be a faithful friend – but only to selected individuals whom they can usually greatly influence.
