Virgo – Libra Cusp (September 21 to September 29)
Individuals born on the cusp of Virgo and Libra are ruled by both Mercury and Venus. They have a shrewd and analytical nature coupled with sharp perception. In general, it is a fine combination which provides the Libra side of this character the elements most needed.
However, these individuals need to guard against the inherent faults which come with Mercury if they would avoid injury to the softer and more understanding qualities associated with Venus.
Here, the Libra sense of judgment is coupled with a quick talent to size up a situation and back a decision with sound logic. Any trivialities should be avoided as minor issues are prone to worry these cuspians...particularly regarding what others might think or do.
Nonetheless, the logic associated with this cusp will enable its subjects to modify judgment in light of later facts.
Libra – Scorpio Cusp (October 21 to October 29)
Individuals born on the cusp of Libra and Scorpio are ruled by both Venus and Pluto. Here, the fair judgment of Libra adds intuition to the cool, precise skill of Scorpio. The end result is something quite remarkable...if care is taken in development. Coupled with the inherent Libra craving for excitement is the bold and pleasure-seeking Scorpio mind, which is strong in self-control and determination, standing ready to carry into action whatever seems worthwhile.
However, the ability to turn ideas into accomplishments often produces a marked egotism among these cuspians, which is all the more reason why they should seek higher goals in culture, education and social life.
Whatever is achieved by these individuals, they will cling to with much tenacity and they can easily drift into narrow-mindedness and unscrupulous behavior if not careful. These are souls who are easily flattered, particularly by popular acclaim, and flare into anger toward those who oppose their schemes.
Yet, when intuition and judgment are developed to their fullest extent, these are not only dynamic persons, but ones who are endowed with the rare presence of mind.
