How To Balance On The Taurus/Gemini Cusp

Posted on May 18, 2018

If your birthday is somewhere around May 17th to May 23rd, you likely fall on either the Gemini or Taurus side of the month, but what if you display traits of each?

There are so many resources out there for learning about the twelve sun signs, but for those who fall on the cusp of two signs it can be harder to find information on your personality. Your unique star placement draws out different, sometimes blended aspects of each sign and you might be curious about your own unique characteristics. Are you more Gemini, more Taurus, or an even blend of both?

If you’ve ever wondered that very thing, this is the article for you.

Air wisps through the clouds and down to embrace the earth’s crust in this unique cusp, giving grounded energy to intellectual winds. This combination provides an energy of youthfulness and cheer, an almost perfect blend between the flight-of-fancy Gemini and the cozy-and-refined Taurus.

Because of this blend of energies, you find yourself adaptable and relatively able to go with the flow on most occasions. You’re pretty laid back, but that doesn’t mean you don’t get frustrated or on edge from time to time.

Embrace Your Duality

First of all, being connected to two signs means you get to reap certain benefits twice a year when the sun is in each sign. With the sun currently in Taurus, be sure to read up on how to channel your unique Taurean energy.

Both Taurus and Gemini are signs that appreciate acts of indulgence, be it delicious food or boozy cocktails. Those who fall on the cusp of these signs need to pay a bit more attention to their consumption of such delicacies, as it is easy to go overboard. Like all Taureans/Geminis before you, you must learn the balance between pleasure and restraint.

Your energy is quite dynamic, and you play many different roles in almost every area of your life. You want to experience it all and wear every hat in the metaphorical closet. You may find yourself burning through career paths, hobbies, passions, and sometimes even friends on the pursuit of different experiences. Just make sure you don’t take your loved ones for granted while you conquer the world.

Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty and love. This inspires a bit of a romantic within you, while the Mercurial energy that rules over your Gemini side is concerned with communication and travel. Your recipe for a perfect life might include romance on trips around the world, writing about your experiences. Whatever you choose to do in your career, you can be certain it will encompass a certain level of excitement.

When it comes to interpersonal communication, Mercury helps you get your point across while inspiring you to really listen to other people. The Bull within, however, can be quite stubborn at times. Fortunately, you have Gemini on your side to balance things out. Try to remember that balance the next time someone is getting under your skin.

Physically, your Gemini side likes activity and engagement of the body, but the cozy Taurus likes to relax and sometimes opts for a cat nap in lieu of an afternoon jog. Allow yourself to rest when you need to, but try to stay on track with physical activity, lest that airy wind become restless. With too much energy and nowhere to put it, you run the risk of becoming agitated or anxious.

While the Taurus in you is a lover of the finer things in life, practical Gemini often steps in with its thrifty nature. You probably struggle when it comes to spending money given the frugality of the Taurus and the decision-conscious nature of Gemini. It can be hard for a Gemini to choose between two or more options. You can see how this might get complicated during a weekend walk through the shopping mall. Just remember that life is all about balance, and it’s okay to splurge every once in a while.

The Best of Both Worlds

Being on the cusp of two amazing signs compounds the sheer awesomeness of your personality. You have energy and determination leveled with quick wit and a vast intellect. You should be proud to fall on this cusp, and remember to embrace your unique personality.

The most important thing to remember to make the most out of this placement is learning your unique balance between the two sides. Gemini and Taurus come together to create a beautiful and complex union of traits and characteristics. As long as you let them flourish, you’ll be proud to call yourself a Gemini/Taurus hybrid.
