Born on a cusp: Aquarius-Pisces
Aquarius is the 11th Sign of the Zodiac. Aquarians are humanitarians and philanthropists, the visionaries of the Zodiac. Aquarians value friendship and often have many acquaintances in addition to their close friends. Pisces is the 12th and final Sign of the Zodiac. All that is learned by the first 11 Signs comes together to help Pisces reach the pinnacle of their potential. Those born on the Aquarius/Pisces Cusp are selfless and spiritual, often strongly intuitive and receptive to the collective unconscious.
The astrological symbol of Aquarius is the Water Bearer. The astrological symbol of Pisces is the Pair of Fish. The Aquarius/Pisces Cusp reflects the dual nature of life, reality and nonreality, consciousness and the unconscious. It represents consciousness through the flowing of ideas. Those born on this Cusp work hard to bring their ideas to fruition, stubbornly refusing to give up their causes. In this way, the Fixed quality of Aquarius is exemplified, but the Mutable quality of Pisces shows itself equally by deeming these individuals as people without a strong agenda. They tend to go with the flow and move where life takes them. They are peace-loving and friendly, and are the chameleons of the Zodiac, receptive to the needs of others but sometimes getting lost themselves.
Aquarius is ruled by the Planets Uranus and Saturn. In ancient Roman mythology, Saturn (and his Greek equivalent, Cronus) was the father of many gods, including Zeus. Uranus, the oldest god, was associated with Earth. When the Planet Uranus was discovered, astrologers assigned it as the modern ruler of Aquarius. It is from this Planet that Aquarians receive their visionary nature. Uranus is associated with progress and technology -- anything that is radical -- and it rules electricity and Astrology.
Pisces is ruled by the Planets Jupiter and Neptune. In ancient Roman mythology, Jupiter (and his Greek equivalent, Zeus) was the king of the gods. Neptune (and his Greek equivalent, Poseidon) was the god of the sea. When the Planet Neptune was discovered, modern astrologers assigned it to be the ruler of Pisces. Neptune is about everything that isn't quite real: illusion and fantasy, drama and art, spirituality and faith. All of these are important to those born under Pisces. Aquarius/Pisces tend to be strongly spiritual (not necessarily religious) and artistic. They are idealistic, but sometimes their dreams are vague and impractical. When reality intrudes, they can become pessimistic or lethargic, but they are very adaptive and broad-minded, so they can rework their ideals when necessary.
