Taurus Gemini Cusp

I was born close to the Taurus Gemini cusp. Am I a Taurus or am I a Gemini?

A cusp is the moment one sign changes to the next. The cusp between Taurus and Gemini happens at a precise moment, which varies from year to year. If you were born before it you would be Taurus, and after it you would be Gemini.

The moment of the Taurus Gemini cusp is not related to calendar dates. It's not as simple as saying May 20th is always Taurus and May 21st is always Gemini. One year the cusp may be at 11pm at night on May 20th, and the next year it may be early in the morning on May 21st etc.

To find out for sure which sign you are you will need to know when exactly you were born. Specifically you will need to know:

  • Your date of birth (must be accurate)
  • Your time of birth (as accurate as possible)
  • Your town and country of birth

With that information an astrologer can calculate which side of the Taurus Gemini cusp you were born on, and therefore which sign you are. For example, this calculation is always performed as part of my natal readings (for one person) and relationship readings (for couples).

If you don't know your birth time then things get a little more complicated, but it is often possible to figure it out "backwards" from major life events. That's a technique called birth time rectification. I won't confuse things here by going into it, other than to say it exists for that scenario.

Taurus Gemini Cusp - the best guess approach

Another way to establish which sign you are is simply to look at the list of Taurus traits compared to Gemini traits. Taurus and Gemini have very different characteristics so it's often fairly easy to see which one you are.

In some cases however people relate almost equally to both signs. In that situation it's going to be because your sun sign is one of them, while you have another planet (most often mercury) in the other. For example you may have your sun in Taurus and your mercury in Gemini.

In that situation you probably will need an astrologer to tell you which is which, and explain how they interact. There are a large number of permutations so trying to cover them all here would be very confusing, but I automatically include your specific planets and interactions in all my natal readings (for one person) and relationship readings (for couples) mentioned above.
