Is it your birthday this week? Or do you know anyone who was born from about October 19 to October 25? That’s the Libra-Scorpio cusp, and if your birthday falls during this time you’re a force to be reckoned with!
I know a few folks born on this cusp, which is known as the Cusp of Drama and Criticism, and while that does not sound so special at a glance, these people are powerful.
Drama and criticism aren’t qualities I love — especially when they’re aimed at me. I have distaste for people who behave overly dramatic and who always blow things out of proportion. And I certainly don’t enjoy being judged or nitpicked. So when I first heard about this cusp combination I was, like, watch out!
What I didn’t realize, though, is that this cusp is named for its passionate ruling planets. Venus rules Libra and Pluto rules Scorpio, so this cusp’s qualities combine to become a cool combination of intellect and flamboyance that some people love and others just can’t handle.
Because these cuspers are so competent and speak so honestly, they can come off as arrogant or blunt and rub others the wrong way. But if you take time to get to know them, these are qualities to respect. I’m one of the people who loves this cusp, now.
Their criticism is usually constructive, as they just want to make things better for everyone. And their flare for drama is because they care — passionately — about life, work and the people in their lives.
If you or your friends are lucky enough to have a birthday on the Libra-Scorpio Cusp, know that you have the strong and loving leadership skills of Libra and the intense precision of Scorpio, which gives you the ability to realize amazing things.
