Virgo Cusps of Birth
Persons born "on the line" between two Zodiac Signs of Leo-Virgo or Virgo-Libra 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.
Leo-Virgo Cusp of Exposure
If you were born on the Leo-Virgo cusp, from about August 19 to August 25, you were born on "The Cusp of Exposure", but that’s not as risque as it sounds. In fact, you face some not-so-fun and conflicting energy in your life. Leo is a Fire sign and Virgo is an Earth sign, which means there are contrary elements to your personality. The question is, will the fire in your heart be smothered by the Earth, or will it burn bright?
Because these cuspers were born between such very different signs, it’s hard to say which way they’ll lean. Some on the Leo-Virgo cusp gravitate more toward Leo’s need for drama and attention, while others are more like Virgo and prefer a quiet, less social lifestyle. Whichever way you lean, though, your personality will most likely be hardworking and passionate, especially when dedicated to a particular cause.
Strengths: Hardworking, passionate, discriminating, positive, success-driven and honest.
Weaknesses: Critical, antisocial, manipulative, stubborn, quarrelsome and melodramatic.
How Leo and Virgo energy work together: Leo’s flair for drama and Virgo’s down to earth practicality don’t always mix well. These cuspers need to be careful of living a life of extremes - either bold and loud or silent and secretive. But if they can strike a balance between their extroverted and introverted sides, they will master the rare ability to know exactly when to speak up and when to remain silent.
What they love: Getting behind a good cause. Leo is a loving and natural born leader, while Virgo is hardworking, detail oriented and devoted to helping others. Together this is a persuasive cusp combination that is happiest when rallying a group of people in support of a great cause. And know this: They will succeed!
What they need: Intimacy. It won’t come easy for these cuspers, who value secrets and privacy above all else, but they really need to have people in their lives who know them well and love them for exactly who they are.
Advice: Leo-Virgo cuspers must learn to share more of themselves with others, which will in turn help them get in better touch with their own feelings and emotions.
Virgo-Libra Cusp of Beauty
Ruled by the planets of Mercury and Venus, this makes for a delightful Zodiac combination thanks to the influences of the planets representing communication and love. Lovers of beauty in people, art and nature, this Zodiac combination does have a more serious side. They have brilliant analytical skills and have a strong work ethic, which grows even stronger with age. They have an excellent head for business because of their logical approach to problem solving, combined with their diligence and reliability.
But they have to be careful that the perfectionist nature of their Virgo side, does not take over too much and because their highly balanced nature means they can always see every side of a dilemma, it can make it difficult for them to make decisions.
When Virgoan/Librans set goals for themselves, they have a dogged determined to succeed in reaching those goals. Because they tend to want to improve the lives of others, rather than constantly looking inwardly at themselves, the Virgoan association with health will often influence this combination to seek a career in medicine.
Because of the influence of Venus, the Zodiac combination of Virgo and Libra are at their happiest when they’re in a relationship and they have a strong sense of loyalty. They rarely display anger but if their sense of fair play has been violated, they are not beyond using subtle means to get even.
Virgo/Libra has a wonderful ability to see all sides of a situation, making them one of the most just and fairest of the Zodiac combinations.
