I am a cusp and I can prove it :-)!

Check out these descriptions of a Taurean and a Gemini. I think they fit me exceptionally well :-)!

Taurus:

Origin / Representation

Unlike Aries, which has had several symbols over time, Taurus has always been represented by the bull. To the casual observer, it might seem odd that a bull, which is often thought of as an aggressive, primal creature, should symbolize a sign of peace and love. The reason? Timing. In ancient cultures, most springtime celebrations occurred around May Day, when the last traces of winter were finally over, the land could be plowed again, and fertility was in the air. So the bull constellation’s appearance in the night sky coincided with these festivities.

Also, the progression of the zodiacal signs occurs from the head down, so while Aries is represented by the head, Taurus has a strong connection to the neck, larynx, and ears.

Taurus’ planetary ruler is Venus, the goddess of peace, love, and harmony. If you are a Taurus, Venus’ likely influence on you includes your romantic, caring nature, your preference for the color blue (although there is some debate about this), and your favorite day—Friday (in French, vendredi, named after Venus).

Positive Qualities

You are a builder, restorer, and caretaker of those things you find important—primarily the earth, animals, and people. You are self-reliant, painstakingly patient, and stubborn—bullish, in other words. You tak e a great deal of pride and pleasure in fixing up and maintaining a home, or discovering a starving animal and nursing it back to health, or planting trees where there were none before.

Because of this open-armed kindness, people find you wonderfully comfortable to be with. You make a great friend—you’re stable, loyal, and loving. Touch is essential to you—you love to hug and be hugged.

You appreciate beauty in all its forms, due to your close affinity with nature. You prefer to surround yourself with people who have highly attractive qualities—be they external or internal. You cannot tolerate ugliness, especially of the earth—this makes you a firm opponent of pollution in all its forms.

Since truth and beauty are so closely related, you also have a preoccupation with honesty, and a low tolerance for corruption. You are forthright in your conversation, and so look people straight in the eyes when you speak to them. In fact, you tend to distrust those who can not meet your gaze. Although some Taureans have been successful political leaders (primarily as peacemakers, such as Harry Truman), most are quite content to be led (this fits with the chronology of the zodiac: Aries, the first sign, is a natural leader; Taurus tends to follow him). That is not to say you are subservient; your self-reliance allows you to be successful and to be entrusted with great responsibility. But it is usually within a larger context: in other words, you make a great executive within the framework of a corporation, but you are not a maverick. You don’t need to be president. In fact, you tend to shun the spotlight. Large crowds can be intimidating to you, so you are much more effective in small groups. Many Taureans are teachers, an occupation that displays great patience, nurturing, and self-reliance within the larger framework of the educational system.

Trouble Areas

Your desire for security and stability are so strong you tend to be overly stubborn and possessive. No matter what misfortune, obstacles, or heartache befall you, you simply will not budge. Although this is admirable, too often it limits you and frustrates others in their dealings with you. If you refuse to see someone else’s side of an argument, there is little chance of resolving the conflict, so your obstinance will hurt you in the end. You are prone to brooding and dark moods, but these are not faults , as long as you don’t get mired in prolonged states of depression. Step back and look at the big picture if this occurs, and chances are the “builder” in you will begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Physical Qualities and Activities

Like your symbol, you have a tendency to be big-boned, strong, perhaps even overweight. You’re not very fast on your feet, but you can tangle with the best of them. You are an earth sign, so you enjoy being in contact with the ground; this fact, combined with your acute sense of touch and great patience, makes you an ideal gardener.

Because of your affinity with the ear and throat, music is prominent in your life. Your voice is one of your most distinguishing features, and you know how to use it to your advantage—many Taureans are excellent orators, singers and singing instructors.

But this also makes you prone to physical ailments in the throat and neck area. Treat any infections immediately, because they could lead to more serious problems elsewhere. Also, you gain weight easily, so be careful not to overindulge on the food you love so much, and exercise regularly.

Love and Relationships

As a lover, you are not as tempestuous as, say, Pisces, Leo, or Scorpio, but you are warm, sensual, and highly affectionate. As a mate, you are often ideal, because of your great capacity for love, your patience, and your stability.

Your ideal matches are with Scorpio (although it can be stormy, it’s proven to endure), and the two other earth signs, Virgo and Capricorn. Both are very stable and harmonious with you, although the latter is perhaps better suited to a business partnership. Even a partner of your own sign is compatible, although it’s not often found.

Signs to avoid are Aries (although the Arian’s strong will can be compatible with certain Taureans who are more docile, th ey’re generally considered too independent-minded), Sagittarius (much too free-spirited for you), and Gemini (again, too restless).

Gemini:

Origin / Representation

Gemini is symbolized by twins. In Greek astrology, those twins were Castor and Pollux, twin stars in the sky and heroic brothers in myth. Castor was a great horseman, and Pollux was a champion boxer (ironic, because Gemini is not normally a violent sign). More commonly, the twins are thought of as bright children, which gives Gemini a sense of mirth, innocence, and great wonder.

Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury, which symbolizes great intelligence, communication (Mercury was the Messenger of the gods), eloquence, inquisitiveness, diversity, travel, speed, and changeability. If you are a Gemini, Wednesday is your lucky day (mercredi in French), and your best color is likely to be silver or gray.

Positive Qualities

First of all, you’re a great thinker. Many of the world’s intellectuals are Geminis. Your mind is insatiable—it’s so quick on the uptake that you can’t understand why everyone else is just now grasping what you got in a split second. In fact, by the time it takes them to catch up with you, your mind has become bored by the inactivity. You’ve already turned and twisted the knowledge around just to see what would happen, and to keep your mind active.

Some people mistake this playful brilliance as deception or dish onesty, because they can’t keep up with you. But you’re just trying to keep things interesting. Your mind needs to be fed with new ideas on a constant basis. Having recognized this at an early age, you’ve become remarkably adept at satisfying it. Wit is your forte. You love to laugh, because you’re so good at sharp humor. You’re particularly fond of puns and wordplay—Mercury rules writing, language, and a love of words—so you’re quite the social charmer.

You’re popular, and you know it. You enjoy people, and you love to watch them to keep your mind busy. You’re at your best at parties, bars, the office water cooler—anywhere you can find people with whom you can laugh. You thrive on gossip and news—you need information constantly, more even than food.

Trouble Areas

Since Gemini is represented by twins, some people believe the sign has a tendency towards schizophrenia, or at the very worst, a dishonest, two-faced character. The truth is, you’re probably just misunderstood. To you, it’s natural to think on two levels at once, but others can’t understand it. Similarly, your playfulness is easily misinterpreted as deceit, so be careful not to overdo it, and try to be more aware of others’ reactions to you. Quite often, you’re so busy entertaining, charming, and theoriz ing that you don’t stop to notice the effect of your words—you’re too preoccupied with the next thought to see where the last one went.

As brilliant as your mind can be, you have to work to rein it in. Your attention wanders off a lot, as does your train of thought. Sartre can be lucid and penetrating on one page, then wander off on an errant tangent the next. If you organize your thoughts with more patience, your words will have more power. Otherwise, people are likely to react to you by saying things like, “That’s very interesting, but who cares?”

Physical Qualities and Activities

Gemini is an air sign, and the fact that it’s ruled by Mercury also indicates speed. So you are most likely to be light and airy in many ways, including physical stature. You are slight and small-boned, but your most distinguishing features are your expressive eyes. They’re busy watching everything, so they react a lot, moving from side to side, even expanding and dilating.

You love music, and if you play, it probably involves fingerwork and air—the flute is a natural choice for you. Your favorite sport is likely to be tennis—it involves lots of movement and action, yet not so much that you have to work incredibly hard at it. It’s also social—not only as a way to have fun with a friend, but to see others at a tennis club.

Your sign rules the chest, lungs, arms, and hands, so these areas are particularly susceptible to ailmen ts. You’re more likely to get a common cold than other people, so take extra measures to avoid it. You’re also prone to nervous disorders, so don’t overwork or overdo the caffeine. Light exercise—tennis, walking, skating, anything involving ease of movement and companionship that doesn’t demand hard work or extraordinary skill—is highly recommended for you.

Love and Relationships

You are famous for your restlessness, especially in romance. You get bored easily, and as with other things in your life, you like to sample everything and everyone. Your best match is with Libra, who has just enough in common with you and just enough that’s different. Your whims and fancies will be much appreciated and understood by the sign that loves to love. You also fare well in long-term relationships with Aquarius, who also is just capricious enough for you. You may find yourself attracted to Leos at first, but this pairing is ultimately unstable.

Those you should avoid are Taurus (too slow for you), Cancer (too stable and domestic) and Pisces (too emotionally needy—you’d hurt them far too often).

I think it perfectly matches my traits, attributes, characteristics, attitude… :-)! Hmmm…
