CANCER/LEO -Cusp July 17 to July 27
Those who draw their first breath when one sign is giving place to another are said to belong on the Cusp, and so partake of the characteristics of both signs. This may be an advantage or a disadvantage, according to the harmony or in harmony of the signs. Six days in a sign is said to constitute a residence, but anything less than this time endows one with some of the qualities of the preceding sign.
The ancients gave the cusp children liberty to select their own colors and jewels from the two signs, and considered them related to the planets of both. Any other cusp information can easily be gleaned by the study of the two signs.
Cancer/Leo Cusp - July 17 to July 27
In this position are found the elements of fire and water—very wet water and very hot fire. These natives are often intellectual geniuses, and usually ambitious and desirous of occupying the best places. A few of them are willing to work for such distinction, but the majority rely upon their wits to carry them through.
The most daring and often the most unscrupulous politicians are found here. The natural Leo laziness is much modified by the Cancer restlessness, which keeps them hunting for new pleasures and unique sensations. They are secretive or frank as best suits their purpose.
The men demand the utmost probity in their wives, but decline to be called to book in return. Women born on this cusp are generally very intense, and if treated unkindly or indifferently are likely to conceive a disgust for their marital companions. When this is the case, the condition is final. As mothers, they are most affectionate and self-denying, and as housekeepers are sometimes too orderly for their own and others' comfort.
Their memories are phenomenal. The well-reared and educated Cancer-Leo native is a beautiful character. The sympathy for suffering is an all-round emotion which touches the pocket as well as the heart. There are no heights that these people cannot attain if they so elect.
They are not fond of their enemies, but they will stand by both friend and foe through every description of trial.
