Each month with On the Cusp, we point our astrological magnifying glass on all the people born between two zodiac signs. Happy birthday, turn-of-the-solstice babies! Those born on the Gemini Cancer cusp around June 21 have the distinct honor of blossoming during a pretty baller time of the year.
But, why? And what does it actually mean to be born on the Gemini Cancer cusp? First, a reminder that you are always one sign or another, but depending on your birth date, hues from your zodiac neighbor may influence your nuanced personality. These are the socialites of the zodiac: Think the Olsen twins in their hard-partying NYU days, not in their reclusive, dressed-like-a-Victorian-widow-with-a-Venti days.
Or maybe both—who am I to judge?
Gemini babies are known for their dual nature and their unfortunate tendency to flake. Definitely invite a Gemini to a party if you need someone to light up the room with their charismatic personality. My best friend from Maine is actually a tried-and-true Cancer and wants everyone to know—she even illegally got the zodiac symbol tattooed on her stomach at age You have artistic sensibilities, being exceptionally creative and imaginative.
Cancers also need constant love and validation from the people in their life. They can be clingy and moody, but are overall good to keep around: Their intuitive, empathetic, and nurturing nature makes them the best person to cry with when life gets you down. Individuals born under this cusp are ruled by the planets Mercury and the Moon. The season being late spring and early summer. The associated elements comprise air and water. It is known as the cusp of magic, but there are few drawbacks too, like you may get upset for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, or you may have a hard time hiding your feelings of jealousy and possessiveness.
Gemini is a mutable sign ruled by Mercury, which represents travel, quick-wit, and intellect; whereas, Cancer is ruled by the planet Moon, which is associated with emotions and nourishment.
So what happens when a person is born with favoring qualities of both these signs? Let us take a look at the personality traits.
Personality Traits. Super Emotional. They are known to be super emotional, that's why you will find them surrounded by friends and family all the time. They attach themselves to that one particular person, be it their partner or their kids, and expect them to have the same feelings towards them. They are emotional but logical, honest people, and tend to make other people emotional as well. They abhor hatred.
They can be quite demanding, and feel disappointed if their better half or family fails to be sensitive to their feelings and fulfill their desires. Excellent Cooks.
They are great lovers of food, and love to relish different types of food. They are all geared up when it comes to trying out new food. This makes them amazing cooks.
Don't be surprised if your spouse is an excellent cook, he might just be a Gemini-Cancer cusp. They just don't love to cook for themselves, but are happy to fix something new for their loved ones as well. This is where people start taking them for granted as they forgive and forget easily. Because of their patient nature, they get along with almost anybody. After all, patience is a virtue. They tend to be really private about their affairs.
Even if they are broken inside or depressed, they will still welcome you with the most beautiful smile.
This way you won't suspect that there is something wrong. However, if they are willing to share their innermost thoughts and feelings, it is with utmost respect and trust in that other person.
Match between a Cancer woman and a Pisces man will be a harmonious one. Marriage between a Pisces female and a Cancer male blooms and flourishes. Very expressive, imaginative, and with great creative qualities. The Sun moves into Libra on September 23, -- the Fall Equinox above the equator and Spring Equinox below, when the days and nights are equal. Always happy. The only problem would be that the Cancer woman - once they have a hold on a partner, they won't want to let go - may get hurt by the Pisces' infidelities or excessive flirting.
They generally do not open up to the outer world. They are very committed, once they take on some task. This rule applies to their personal lives too. Once they fall in love with somebody, they are devoted and always strive to maintain the relationship for the rest of their lives.
So, even if the pair has a breakup, this cusp would still try to work out things between them. Because of their emotional and sensitive nature, they tend to be very demanding at times, which puts off the other person. Demanding can be in the form of asking for extra love and attention.
They have the ability to find inspiration from the simplest of things. They may get an idea to start a school or an NGO while fidgeting with their pen. Now, for other signs, a pen may just be a thing which is used for writing.
But such simple things in life inspire them to do something or start something for the upliftment of others in the society. It does not really matter if their effort is recognized or not. Such individuals shine from within, they are always inspired to do something productive, which helps them to grow in life.
Going that extra mile. They are intellectual and love to have conversations which involve philosophy. This desire to have an intelligent and smart communication, makes them walk that extra mile to accomplish their dreams and ambitions. Romantic and Affectionate. They are born romantic, and are known to woo their partners with romantic poems or fulfilling their every desire.
With this sign, you can even expect actions like proposing to their partners by going down on their knees in the most romantic way ever. They often rely on their intuition to accomplish a certain thing. And most of the time, their intuition leads them to the right person at the right time. This is one of their major weaknesses. If they are heart-broken or in any kind of misery, they often isolate themselves and confine themselves to their own world. They totally shun people, this can be quite self-destructing for them because they plunge into deep depression, and sometimes, it becomes quite difficult for them to come out of it.
They are like magnets who attract people with their charming and sweet nature. They have this spark in their eyes which draws all the good and bad guys to them.
