Whether you are an Aries, a Pisces or a Sagittarius, everyone wonders what the new year has in store for them at the start of 2021, and this is all the more true after that “annus horribilis” that made the French believe. But are you sure that you are interested in correct horoscope predictions? Because you cannot rely on one, but on two signs …
In an astral map, the tip corresponds to the boundary between two signs of the zodiac, which is explained by the shift between the solar calendar (which defines the twelve signs according to the position of the sun during the day and month of birth) and our Gregorian calendar.
A mix of functions
People born about three days before and three days after the transition from one sign to another (and thus from one house to another) benefit from a mixture of traits specific to the two signs, explains Hélèna Dryburgh in her Beginner’s Guide to Astrology (1).
Capricorn / Aquarius were born between January 16 and 22, Aquarius / Pisces between February 15 and 21, Pisces / Aries between March 17 and 23, Aries / Taurus between March 16 and 23 April 22nd, Taurus / Gemini between May 17 and 23, Gemini / Cancer between June 17 and 23, Cancer / Leo between July 17 and 23, Leo / Virgo between July 19 and 25 August, Virgo / Libra between 19 and 25 September, Libra / Scorpio between 19 and 25 October, Scorpio / Sagittarius between 19 and 25 November and Sagittarius / Capricorn between 19 and 25 December.

While some Cupsides only strongly identify with the personality of their birth sign, others feel the influences of the surrounding signs. In addition to the sun sign, the ascendant will also have its role in establishing the behavior of the native.
“One possible way”
“Astrology can define a context in which an individual is born and decipher the type of energy that enlivens the environment in which they live. It is up to the local to decide whether or not to use his abilities,” recalls Hélèna Dryburgh.
“I often define the astrological tool as GPS; it defines a possible path; it is up to us to accept, adapt, or reject it,” she adds. “The astrological theme answers questions about the meaning of life” with limits: “Don’t ask him about the lottery numbers!”.
