A star is born
This personality has recently made the change from the sentimental, domestic, sensitive energy of Cancer to the more self-confident, genial, playful personality of Leo. He may not be completely comfortable in his new persona yet, and revert "back" to his old habits from time to time, confusing the person himself and the people around him trying to get a fix on his "real identity."
This engagingly self-aware soul has successfully made the transition from shy homebody to spotlight celebrity his Cancer-to-Leo sister finds so daunting ... and like any daredevil, high on the adrenaline rush of his own courage, he may be just a little too pumped, a little too full of himself for anybody's comfort.
Having the time of his life
As someone not yet at ease inside his new skin ... but oh so proud to be here (!!) ... this character, like any over-grown kid in a fresh set of duds, wants to be welcomed into the club by the reigning royalty, the old hands who have been playing themselves for so long they've forgotten it's all just costumes and fancy scripts ... and that they, too, will be moving on to become new characters someday.
Ok, maybe nobody's broken that news to them yet ... because being a Leo is so much fun it would take a heart harder than Scrooge's to throw cold water on their joy. Meanwhile the puppy-pushy new arrival ... fresh from bashful Cancer's family nest ... will be falling over his own feet with enthusiasm, laughing at his own antics like everyone else. (At least he'll convince himself people are laughing with him, not at him ... although he'll take attention and reaction any way it comes!!)

But still getting his bearings
Until he gets his land-legs in this new arena, his antics will have that self-conscious, awkward edge of someone trying too hard to make a good impression .. and some of his more dramatic moments of grand-standing -- while they will be impossible to ignore -- will also lack the seasoning and aplomb of a veteran performer.
There will be plenty of times when he just gets on people's nerves ... because until he learns he does possess an "off" button ... he will perform as though the world is his captive audience. Have you ever been at a Christmas-party-from-Hell where all the kids wound up with a sugar buzz? The Leo-from-Cancer cusp personality can be like that a lot. It's not just exhausting for him. It's exhausting for those around him.
Learning the role
He can be unexpectedly thin-skinned if he feels unappreciated. He's surprisingly dependent on family ... and family approval, as if he feels he owes them proof of his excellence. But to his credit, he's got more respect for things like heritage, tradition, and history than your usual live-for-the-moment Leo.
Once he learns life in this enchanting new fast-lane doesn't have to be a laugh-a-minute ... and that a stream of new tricks aren't necessary for people to love him, he'll take a deep breath and settle more decorously into his role of Crown Prince ... heir apparent to Leo's lovely legacy. Until then, he'll expect people to indulge his drive for approval, to applaud his "Hey, Ma ... look at me!!" stunts, and beam with delight whenever he walks in the room.
Until he gets it right
He truly won't understand the sharp smack on the rear he sometimes gets from grumpy folks who think they've had enough of his nonsense ... and want him to pipe down and breathe through his nose for a while, dammit. But he'll learn. Honest.

Born on the Cusp in Astrology -- The Technical Explanation ---> 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.
The Cancer-to-Leo Cusp-Born Person -- July 17 to July 22 ---> Recluse to Icon -- This personality is making the change from the empathetic, moody, highly sensitive energy of Cancer to the more outgoing, intense, public awareness of Leo. It doesn't even sound like an easy trip. The change from homebody to public figure and celebrity can be uncomfortable and exhausting, often confusing the person himself and the people around him who are trying to get a fix on his real identity.
The Leo-from-Cancer Cusp-Born Person -- July 23 to July 27 ---> A star is born -- This personality has recently made the change from the sentimental, domestic, sensitive energy of Cancer to the more self-confident, genial, playful personality of Leo. He may not be completely comfortable in his new persona yet, and revert "back" to his old habits from time to time, confusing the person himself and the people around him trying to get a fix on his "real identity."
Were You Born on the Cusp? -- Examples all around the Zodiac ---> The self-sacrificing, mystical, artistic, and usually peace-loving Pisces-to-Aries person will sometimes be surprisingly temperamental, impatient, aggressive, and daring, with an unmistakable warrior energy camouflaged, as a rule, by the normally passive, spiritual qualities of her Pisces sign.
What Does It Mean to be 'Born on the Cusp?' ---> Being "born on the cusp" to most people means a birthday (usually their own) falls on or about the 21st of the month. This is approximately the day the Sun changes from one sign to another in the Zodiac, although calendars and other human structures being what they are, even that causes confusion. Sometimes the date is the 19th; sometimes the 23rd.
Born with the Sun in Leo -- The Leo Character ---> The Zodiac's Constant Kid -- A Leo soul is a true showman, celestial royalty, the undeniable star of the Zodiac. He can be a delightful mix of youthful exuberance, playfulness, enthusiasm and joy ... like a real-life Peter Pan, the kid who refuses to grow up.
When the Sun is in Leo ---> The symbol for Leo is the Lion. -- Leo energy -- When the Sun is in Leo, prepare for a month of true joy. People turn to activities and interests they really love. They use their energy to support their egos. They want to be noticed; they need to show off!!
