On the Cusp

Aries - Taurus: 4/16 - 4/22

  • Authority /
  • Generosity /
  • Endurance

THE ARIES-TAURUS cusp holds some of the most powerful personalities in the entire zodiac. We're talking pure dominance. Give the Aries-Taurus a position of power, and they will take it to the next level. And then the next one. And then the next, until they are at the top of whatever game they are playing. We're talking King of the Mountain.

Thankfully, this sheer force of will is tempered by a generous spirit. They tend to be great art lovers, nurturing friends, and intuitive leaders. They work hard and they pay hard, and while both feel incredible at first blush, this tendency can soon turn depleting and overwhelming, not only to the Aries-Taurus but also to those around them.

In addition to giving it their all, those born on this cusp also like to give advice. If this advice has to do with tackling a challenge, then by all means, take it! These are intuitive, strategic people who can see situations from all angles and draw a clear path through the most complex mazes. But, if this advice is regarding matters of the human heart, consider getting a second opinion. This is not to say that the advice is inherently bad - it just might not be taking into consideration those pesky little things called emotions.

So, if you are were born on the Aries-Taurus cusp - Please use your powers for good. We probably don't have to tell you that Hitler was also born under this cusp. Also: Do you meditate? You should. Because if you can get into the Jedi mindset, you really can take over the world.

And if you know an Aries-Taurus, then understand that control really is important to them. They will move mountains for you, as long as they don't have to bend to your will.
