Different astrologers often use different dates for the start and end of a zodiac sign, and this can be confusing, especially for the beginner, so we’ll look at this briefly now.
Let’s take the example of Sagittarius. Some astrologers maintain that this sign commences on 23 November.
We would agree with this; other astrologers, however, suggest that Sagittarius commences on 22 November.
Maybe you don’t think that this is much of a difference, but one day makes a lot of difference if you were born on 22 November – would you be a Sagittarius, or would you be a Scorpio?
The rule to remember, should you be born on the date of the commencement of a sign (whichever date that is) or on the date when a sign ends, is that you will be affected by both star signs.
Such people are called cusps; in fact, it is generally accepted that the three or four days into a sign and the three or four days at the end of the sign are cusp cases, and that people born during that period will have characteristics of both signs.
