Astrology is for Skeptics

Real astrology doesn't tell you how to run your life. It doesn't make your decisions for you. It doesn't say you're consigned to a certain "fate."

Real astrology charts life's natural cycles. It describes creation and experiences in ways that make sense.

The Lunar Light

The Moon Position Presently Indicates:
Your mood is passionate, secretive, and ambitious. You see ways to use the resources and abilities of others to accomplish a lot of the goals you have in mind. That, and your desire to get a lot of work done in 1-2-3 order may produce some very satisfying results if you use this energy well. Tie all those niggling details up in a neat package and then stand back and admire your creation.

What Does It Mean to Be 'Born on the Cusp?'
Astrology for Real Life
by Rebecca Brents

A cusp, in architecture, physiology, dentistry ... and astrology, is a point where two things touch, intersect, or fit together -- one against the other. In astrology the point of the "cusp" is more abstract ... referring to the place in the continuum of the Zodiac or in a paper chart where a change occurs between one sign and the next or one house and the next.

In the circular chart of a horoscope -- the document an astrologer uses to read a person's character and the themes and trends of his life -- the cusps between the houses are marked by the dividing lines (like the spokes of a wheel) around the circle. They are assigned a specific degree and minute of arc within the 360° of the circle. (I know. Those of you who snoozed through geometry have no idea what I'm talking about.)

Let's try and put it another way for the non-math majors among us. (Let's also say from the outset it won't be easy, because astrology does necessarily include a certain amount of geometry and math.) All twelve signs of the horoscope are contained in the circle of the chart. Three hundred sixty degrees (in a circle) divided by twelve (the number of signs in the Zodiac) gives thirty degrees per sign.

The house cusps of the horoscope (which is a map of the sky charted at the instant you were born and "superimposed" upon the circle of the Zodiac with its twelve separate signs) will occupy a specific degree and minute of arc ... a certain specific point in space within that circle. (I warned you it wouldn't be easy to explain this.)

In the graphic below, a chart cast for the moment I started writing this article this morning, the cusp of the First House ... also known as the Ascendant ... the far left edge of the horizontal line ... the place where the "9" would be if this were the face of a clock ... is at 16° 26' of Virgo. The Second House cusp (where the circle changes from First House territory to Second House territory -- the place where the "8" would be on a clock face) is 16° 11' of Libra. The Third House cusp -- where the "7" would be on a clock face -- is 15° 31' of Scorpio.
