If you were born on the Leo-Virgo cusp, from about August 19 to August 25, you were born on "The Cusp of Exposure," but that's not as risque as it sounds. In fact, you face some not-so-fun and conflicting energy in your life.
Leo is a Fire sign and Virgo is an Earth sign, which means there are contrary elements to your personality. The question is, will the fire in your heart be smothered by the Earth, or will it burn bright?
Because these cuspers were born between such very different signs, it's hard to say which way they'll lean. Some on the Leo-Virgo cusp gravitate more toward Leo's need for drama and attention, while others are more like Virgo and prefer a quiet, less social lifestyle.
Whichever way you lean, though, your personality will most likely be hardworking and passionate, especially when dedicated to a particular cause.
Learn more about the challenging Leo-Virgo Cusp:
Name of Cusp: The Cusp of Exposure
Date Range: August 19 to August 25
Strengths: Hardworking, passionate, discriminating, positive, success-driven and honest.
Weaknesses: Critical, antisocial, manipulative, stubborn, quarrelsome and melodramatic.
How Leo and Virgo energy work together: Leo's flair for drama and Virgo's down to earth practicality don't always mix well. These cuspers need to be careful of living a life of extremes -- either bold and loud or silent and secretive. But if they can strike a balance between their extroverted and introverted sides, they will master the rare ability to know exactly when to speak up and when to remain silent.
What they love: Getting behind a good cause. Leo is a loving and natural born leader, while Virgo is hardworking, detail oriented and devoted to helping others. Together this is a persuasive cusp combination that is happiest when rallying a group of people in support of a great cause. And know this: They will succeed!
What they need: Intimacy. It won't come easy for these cuspers, who value secrets and privacy above all else, but they really need to have people in their lives who know them well and love them for exactly who they are.
Advice: Leo-Virgo cuspers must learn to share more of themselves with others, which will in turn help them get in better touch with their own feelings and emotions.
