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.
Libra/Scorpio Cusp - Oct. 18 to Oct. 28
This is a peculiarly hard cusp. Libra is said to rule the abdominal regions, and Scorpio the genital organs, and the focusing of these influences upon one part of the body is very difficult for the ordinary unawakened soul to bear. When, however, the spirit is alive to the truth of being, there is no better place in all the twelve signs to hail from. These are the children of creative genius. They originate and carry to conclusions.
The women are usually efficient in every-thing they undertake. They are excellent and often unique cooks and housekeepers. The union of the free air and the restless sea makes an unconventional character which is most pleasing to every one. Sometimes the natural Libra fear and hesitation communicate their influence to this cusp and make the native hesitate in a crisis or before a surgical operation, but as soon as the time comes for the deed to be done, the best of Libra unites with the most forceful of Scorpio, and success generally crowns the effort.
These people are very tenacious of their positions, and having attained the first place, will hold it at all risks. They are sometimes very jealous and untruthful. They can swim or fly out of any scrape that the mind of man can conceive. In personal appearance they are generally immaculate. The tendency of the Scorpio women to scold is much modified by the don't-care disposition of Libra.
