Some astrologers feel that when a planet falls within a certain number of degrees of a house cusp, it makes its presence felt in both the houses that flank that cusp.

How many degrees? Depends on which astrologer you ask — some say as few as three degrees, others as many as ten. How I see it is that like a clock, 00 degrees belongs not to the sign it is leaving but the one it is entering. So does that have a similar effect on the houses as on signs? But of course, there are always 12 house cusps. I hope that helps! Thinking more on this. Theoretically, I consider your example Venus, at the doorway between two rooms i. Maria — Heh. I have my Jupiter intercepted in my 12th. What house system do you prefer? Excellent explanation April.
I use equal houses because of the issues with other house systems so I never use intercepted signs. Similarly with planets that sit at the very edge of a house, I only interpret them for the house they are actually in however close to the cusp of the next house they are. Thanks, Leah — I can definitely see the beauty of equal houses!
It drives me mad! Hi, i enjoy reading, thanx for posting. But also must say that i am born on cusp and i am so special : Ya, and my venus is also in TWO houses- i told u: sooooo special :. I have cap rising with intercepted aquarius. This explanation of behind the scenes with the actual cusp sign as PR makes more sense.

Technically she is a Scorpio, though a couple of hour later and she would be a Saggitarius! Some feel that planets in intercepted signs may suffer from the same disadvantage.

On a side note, thank you for the article on being a stranger in your own home. My skin is not my own, as frank Herbert also assured me. Again, thank you, thank you for your attention. I think it probably means that people initially experience you as a Taurus, but very quickly encounter Gemini and probably get a little confused. Hey…Something has been bugging me. So on my 6th house I have Sagittarius 1.
Always felt I wanted to tell my Sagittarius friends what to do than to bond with them. Or a work related thing. But I was wondering if it does have an effect on our relationship that makes it seem like work rather than a relationship. I hope that helps…. Sorry if i had the wording kinda weird, i just learned about this. My birth chart has one signs skipped and others repeated. That would most likely put scorpio out of my houses. I am still confused how one can deny energy influences being born on a cusp between Sun Signs, except cusp of houses…… I believe that the energy influences on a cusp makes sense.
For example I am on the cusp of Sagittarius and Capricorn. Although my sun sign is Capricorn I definitely resemble and relate to Sagittarius more so than Capricorn. I have other friends that are Taurus. My Aries Taurus cusp friend is very much both Aries and Taurus.
