When you look up your horoscope for the day, do you read two signs? Maybe you relate more to the traits of those fabled cusps. Not every trait that is associated with each particular sun sign fits every personality. However, when it comes to astrology, your birth or natal chart is a more comprehensive picture of where the stars were when you were born. Rather than diving into the duality of your cusp nature, why not dig into your natal chart instead?
To find your astrology report, all you need to do is type, “birth chart” into your browser and answer the questions guided by online places like myastrology.com. You can also pay to have your chart created and interpreted by astrologers. If you don’t think you have the time or inclination to go the extra lightyear to dive into your birth chart, have you considered learning more about your decan within your sign? (Do you know what a decan is?)
Decans have their own set of personalities that are even more refined from the overall spectrum of traits within a sign. Astrologist and creator, Lauren Ash explained that decans are organized into three parts of a single sun sign. If you take the thirty days of a zodiac season, the first deacon is the first 10 days, the second is the next, and so on. So if you are a Pisces born March 8th and Pisces is delineated from February 19th to March 20th, you are in the 2nd decan of Pisces. These traits might be ones you consider more relatable, less time-consuming to discern, and have the benefit of what astrologers would consider a legitimate ideology.
