Gemini / Cancer Cusp

The Cusps

Persons born “on the line” between two Zodiac Signs 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

Individuals born on the cusp of Gemini (the third Sign of the Zodiac) and Cancer (the fourth Sign of the Zodiac) are ruled by both Mercury and the Moon. These cuspians possess a large degree of brilliance and influence, and tend to control those around them. They dislike work which is perceived to be laborious and the inherent shrewdness here often enables Gemini/Cancer natives to attain the “world’s goods” without a great deal of physical or mental effort on their part. Anxious to gain public favor, these cuspians generally succeed by virtue of their great tact and versatility. Interested in heredity and ancestors, this is often reflected in a desire to care for relatives and propagate the family line.
The Gemini/Cancer cusp combination, also known as the Cusp of Magic, corresponds symbolically to the period of human life at around the age of twenty-one. Romantic and inspirational, these natives often employ their talents and energies in the service of a higher purpose…family, religion, philosophy, arts and political or social causes, for example. These are individuals who can wholeheartedly throw themselves into devotional activities and often appear to be mild, even self-effacing characters. Many Gemini/Cancer subjects prefer anonymity in their careers, although there can also be more aggresive natives of this cusp who become assertive as they mature and have no problem in letting the world know who they are. Easily seduced, most of these cuspians have the ability to enchant those around them…both consciously and unconsciously. Such individuals do possess a rather sweetly innocent charm and need to be wary of being imposed upon. However, by virtue of the inherent defensive instinct associated with this cusp combination, even the most mild of these natives will be inclined to gently lay down emotional guidelines that should not be overstepped. The more aggresive of these cuspians are frequently well aware of their powers of persuasion and may employ such power without any qualms whatsoever in order to get their own way, even though others might be hurt in the process.

Blessed with charm and magnetism, Gemini/Cancer subjects can be remarkably cool characters possessed with a useful objectivity, and their reasoning abilities may well prove to be an effective foil to deep emotions. Falling within the influence of both Gemini and Cancer, these cuspians are, in fact, a rather interesting blend of logic and feeling. Thus, when an appeal is made to the emotions of others, it is done in a detached and thoughful manner. Not ones to be easily upset, Gemini/Cancer natives inspire confidence by way of sympathy, concern and a willingness to help. They possess the knack of entering the hearts of those they love and a reluctance to relinquish that position, even when separations are necessary. These cuspians tend to be rather private people who are far from eager to grant others access to their inner world. They often fare best when they are able to work from home and will frequently set up such a home as a type of retreat or sanctuary. If the Gemini/Cancer native does allow another to share his or her living space, then such implies immense trust and a great deal of respect for the other person. An invitation to visit this highly personal world is more often the giving of a true gift or the reflection of a desire to share, rather than a sign of ostentation or need for sociability. Indeed, there is a danger here for these cuspians to isolate themselves from the society around them and retreat into an unproductive dreamworld. Such detachment will stunt the personal and spiritual development of these natives which could, later in life, be perceived by them as a sign of failure. Thus, remaining in touch with reality is important for Gemini/Cancer subjects and they need to find friends and partners who are more extroverted by nature in order to provide an essential link to the world. There is also a tendency for these cuspians to be passively selfish and others may view this as a demand for constant attention…a belief that the Gemini/Cancer cuspian thinks the world revolves around him or her. In short, the special needs and wants of these natives can impose heavy demands upon friends and intimates who may, at the same time, find themselves denying their own emotional and physical requirements…particularly if they are sensitive souls.

From an early age, these subjects are inclined to be reckless and wayward, prone to neglect all other matters in favor of amusement and pleasure. Thus, it is important that the children of this cusp combination be guided by a vigilant eye and a firm but loving hand. The inherent persuasive power of Gemini/Cancer natives becomes particularly evident in matters involving money. The males of this cusp have no difficulty in obtaining control over the purse strings of their women friends, while the females of this cusp, with their ingratiating manners and wheedling tones, find it all too easy to secure liberal “loans” without having to provide any form of security. Losses or gains are of little importance to these cuspians. If temporary failure is encountered in one direction, it appears to be regarded as nothing more than a “stepping stone” which will help these subjects to regain their feet…and there always seems to be an endless supply of backers waiting to provide aid. There will always be close family ties with siblings here and these natives often remain quite youthful and light-hearted throughout their entire life. This cusp combination is also likely to produce more ambidextrous people than any other in the Zodiac.

Due to the influence of Mercury (Gemini’s planetary ruler), there is a strong desire in this cusp combination to take up new projects and switch occupations. This aspect greatly influences the inherently restless nature of Cancer, which has its own personal conflicts and contrasts. With the Moon in the ascendant, these natives need stability which, in an odd fashion, is provided by the “flashback” to Gemini. Those born on the cusp of Gemini and Cancer become extremely active during the daytime and all other customary working hours. Thus, such individuals are able to overcome the traditional nightly restlessness customarily associated with Cancer natives. This cusp combination has a strong sense of conservatism which restrains those it governs from adopting an unwise or questionable enterprise…a typical fault attributed to the influence of Mercury. Gemini/Cancer cuspians simply refuse to take a gamble or engage in undue risks beyond a well-defined point. Thus, these subjects tend to create their own brand of traditions…conforming to an innate love of the old while accepting and enjoying the new. Basically, this is a very intuitive cusp combination accompanied by a broad-minded outlook and capacity for abstract reasoning. Emotion plays a key part in the lives of Gemini/Cancer cuspians, but it is checked and balanced with logic. The awareness and intellectual approach to life displayed by such individuals is often refreshing and the emotional honesty can be quite admirable. Gemini/Cancer subjects are suited to any of the occupations traditionally associated with the Sign of Cancer (often with a greater chance of success), as well as many other occupations courtesy of the high activity provided by the Gemini background. These are quick-witted individuals who are extremely intrigued with things around them and discover so much happiness in their own activities that they are able to shake off the retrospective moods which are such a handicap to the true Cancer subject. Once these cuspians have attained an aim, they move on to something else…feeling that the more they do in the future, the more satisfied they will be when it becomes the past.

With regard to relationships, Gemini/Cancer cuspians can make for caring, flirtatious and playful individuals with the ability to understand the difficulties any loved one will need to work through. However, marital vows are frequently not taken very seriously, particularly if such vows interfere with personal pursuits. Indeed, in certain circumstances, these can be rather untruthful and unscrupulous individuals. Nevertheless, the females of this cusp combination are extremely attached to their offspring and, in the event of a divorce, will abandon all else and make any sacrifice necessary to enable them to retain custody of their children. With an immense fondness for conversation and food, Gemini/Cancer cuspians find dinner dates with friends to be highly enjoyable. These natives are inherently inquisitive and literary-oriented, which means they embrace mental challenges with equal enthusiasm as they do physical ones. By virtue of a willingness to constantly try something new, they often make for excellent cooks. Their many interests result in an entertaining and stimulating conversationalist who truly loves people. They often enjoy team sports because of the family feeling a team frequently provides. Physical exercise and artistic endeavors…either written or on canvas…will allow Gemini/Cancer subjects to channel their swirling emotions into productive output.

Perhaps the greatest strength of the Gemini/Cancer cuspian is the blending of intellectual and conversational skills. In addition, with an inherently affectionate nature, this cusp is counted among the most caring characters of the Zodiac.

The most important lesson to be learned by Gemini/Cancer natives is that they need to curb any tendency toward excitability and overindulgence in diversions…particularly during those times when the Moon is on the wane. It is also necessary for them to constantly keep an eye on the desired goal and resist the urge to drift. The inherent tendency to repress feelings should also be avoided. As with all cusp individuals, these cuspians tend to be attracted to others born on the cusp…particularly those who fall within the Aquarius/Pisces and Scorpio/Sagittarius combinations.

  20. Lindani Said:

    June 20th here, 28 degrees 50min into Gemini, Capricorn ascendant, second decan ..i wonder which MBIT type to we Gemini-Cancer cusp individuals correlate with..Gemini third decans are Rational, Original and Inventive (if you consider Uranus) and on the other side we possess the emotions of moon children…such a combination is puzzling…at first when i read this, i got an idea and we are good with ideas anyway i was thinking “i have finally cracked the true comprehension of intuition and its origin if you may” its a combination of Feeling’s, imagination and Logic, to see the validity of my thought i checked out Aquarius-Pieces cusp and guess what..these people are the most intuitively gifted in all of the Zodiac, i hate Aquariuses they are always!.

  21. Hybreed Said:

    Thanks for this article. I am June 22 and reading this article has shed a lot of light on my past behaviour and given me greater confidence in myself. Would like to see more of such articles.

  23. Karin Said:

    I find your blog very interesting thank you for that! The gemini/cancer cusp.. it really explains a lot and I find it to be true, but would 28th of June fall in the cusp or not?

    • sciler Said:

      No, 28th is Cancer. 20/21 would be cusp. 🙂

      • Karin Said:

        In some places I’ve seen that the cusp is said to be until the 27th. So that’s why I asked.. 🙂

      • sciler Said:

        Hmm, I’ve never seen it that late, but I am not an expert, I just found this to be pretty accurate for me. I guess its possible then?

  24. Jenny Said:

    Very interesting. I was born June 15, 1969. I have found some sites to define being on the cusp as the week that the sun goes into the next sign. I never read up on the Gemini-Cancer cusp and the traits exhibited by individuals that are born on this line, however now that I have and being I was born on a Sunday would put me within the week of the sign change. Anyways, this has been the most spot on explaination of how I am that I have ever read.

  25. Cary Said:

    What zodiac sign am I suppose to be reading if I am on this cusp?

  26. gemini/cancer Said:

    pretty accurate, took me a while to figure out what was going on with me but now i know, good info, thanks 🙂

  27. Donielle Said:

    Omg I loved this blog ~> i’am speechless often I’m confused by which horoscope I should or shouldn’t be reading how ever this proved to be dynamic & must be bookmarked!!!

  28. Tristen Plaisance Said:

    Ima Gemini/Cancer struggling with who I am in my youth and you just hit the nail dead in the middle of its head of what I view my personality to be. Thank you.

  29. Mohammed abdurehman Said:

  32. Banana Said:

    Holy crap this explains me so freaking well.

  33. sista Said:

    that was on point! i’ve been dating a cancer gemini cusp male for 11 years, because he is unscrupulous, definite lack of character and refusal to get a job I have no plans to marry him and i know it will get ugly when I eventually have the courage and guts to make him leave. But the funny thing is? When I explain what he’s done in the past, and what he does today I can’t really say he’s a monster, just a sh*TTy boyfriend.. don’t waste your time on them, the minute they ‘get laid off’ or ‘can’t take the pressure anymore’ claim your distance, because the minute you don’t they will move in, have their best psychopathic friend move in too, use up all your extra income for whatever it is they like to do.. they will take your wallet out of your purse and keep it away from you for the rest of the relationship. it will stay that way until you can throw them out.

  34. Caleb Said:

    Great info! My teacher was talking in class about the astrological zodiac so I read up on my own symbol…. Sounds exactly like me. Not kind of, but exactly like me. 6/21/2000

  35. Gina Said:

    I dated a Gemini/Cancer cusp man and he was the most difficult person to get close to. He avoided any real communication and preferred to text and flirt without any real dialogue or depth… He was by all accounts a total narcissist as well, selfish and emotionally unavailable, yet possessive and controlling… he drove me nuts and I had to get away and get away quick as he turned out to be a really awful person and a total freak sexually… phew! Ladies avoid this type at all costs!

  36. shakria darko Said:

  37. shabie Said:

    What the hell??!!

  41. Jen Said:

    COOL BEANS!!! 🙂

  42. somanytears Said:

    I was here to get insight on the woman my husband had an affair with. Over a 37 year span, he has had cheated with this same woman on three different wives. She loves him, he uses her when he gets bored (he’s a Sagittarius). This article has given me some clues as to why he can’t just leave her alone, dispute her being over 300lbs, having a colostomy bag, living in filth, on disability taking money under the table, using meth, and being able to befriend all of his wives and have no remorse about cheating behind their backs. She always comes off as pitiful and takes constant handouts from good people trying to help her. Her birthday is June 21st.

  43. beliber Said:

    This is content from a book the secret language of relationships

  44. Jeia Said:

    I’m a Gemini-Cancer. I’m trying to understand how it is determined that those under this cusp are selfish & self-destructive? How does that come into play???

  45. Valerie Said:

    I am a Gemini born on June 15th so I wasn’t born on the Cancer cusp but I find I do have a lot of Cancer traits as well. My mom is a Cancer though and she raised me as a single mom. I wonder if that’s where I get the Cancer traits from.

  46. Klass Roy Said:

    Ummm is 25 June on a cusp beacuse on many website such as :

    State that a gemini/cancer cusp is on 19 June-23 June
    and some say that it is from June 16 to June 26 or June 19 – June 24 and i am really confused beacuse i am born on 25 of june and have the traits of a cusp

    Is 25 June a Cusp ?????


  47. Cynthia Said:

    Truly true, loved reading it all makes sense.

  48. Lindsay Said:

    Love this 🙂 I’m a June 22nd baby and love being born on a cusp. And now I fully understand it!

    Thanks for the info 🙂

  49. IIfabszterszII Said:
