The Pisces-Aries Cusp, also called the Cusp of Rebirth, occurs between March 17th and March 23rd. It comes during the seasonal transition from winter to spring (thus the tie to “rebirth”). At first, it would seem that the calm Pisces demeanor would clash with the Aries knight in shining armor, but there are beautiful ways in which these two energetic signatures balance out. Pisces vibes encourage thought before action, and Aries vibes make sure folks don’t spend their lives woolgathering instead of doing.
Cusp of Pisces-Aries
People born during the Cusp of Rebirth are refreshing and energizing. They see hope on the horizon and always seem ready for new beginnings. Generally, they are old souls who have experienced enough of life to look at it more wisely. You have little patience for willful ignorance. Being sagacious doesn’t have to mean dull, however. There’s a little spark in you for fighting, loving, and living!
When you think of the Pisces‘ reputation for compassion, it’s nigh unto unbreakable. Aries put energy behind the Fish’s kindness and concern. This is a powerful combination when a person born on the Pisces-Aries cusp sets a charitable goal. You’ll see that look in their eyes. Just move aside and watch wonders develop.
Ruling Planets: Neptune and Mars
Neptune encourages the idealistic nature of the Pisces part of this Cusp. People born on the Cusp of Rebirth make excellent spiritual guides and teachers. These two planets offer a symmetry between inspired ideas and implementing them. In other words, you have grand concepts, and with focus you can put them into action, making dreams a reality (Mars is very energetic).
Similarly, there’s a dance between being pioneering, impulsive, and intense vs. a calm, cautious demeanor. Sometimes one or the other takes over; that’s natural. Just be mindful of how your inner tug of war affects you daily.
Associated Elements: Water and Fire
Are you surprised? Not really. There is a definite dichotomy in the Pisces-Aries cusp. But when you mix fire and water, what happens? Steam! You are a creative and somewhat bawdy lover if this is your Cusp. Your partners will never want for attention, nor will they ever feel detached. You pay attention to nuances in the bedroom and all parts of your life.
The Cusp of Rebirth is one of looking at things from different angles, and you can’t get more slants than those Fire and Water offer. You have so much information stirring in your mind and soul that sometimes it comes pouring out, typically at the worst possible moment. Unfortunately, not everyone will understand your thought process due to your higher awareness. Be patient. Find a different way to explain things.
Modality: Mutable and Cardinal
“Go with the flow” could well be a Piscean’s mantra. They’re flexible, changeable, and sometimes a little chaotic. The mutable nature here makes for excellent communication skills because you can spin on a dime. Meanwhile, Aries is Cardinal – an initiator, leader, go-getter, and sometimes a rabble-rouser. Together, people born on the Cusp of Rebirth can change minds for the better with their enthusiasm and passion.
Pisces x Aries Hybrid
If you were born during this period, you have a natural sensitivity toward cycles in your life and in the world. You accept that beginnings often have endings and that the wheel of time stops for no one. So, when a conclusion happens, you’re prepared (not necessarily happy, but prepared).
You want to engage in every moment that comes your way. There are nuances all around that people often miss. Not you. You want to make lasting memories, ones that can be shared generationally. And you’re also a perpetual student. For you, being in this world means learning something new every day. It’s exhilarating.
In your heart-of-hearts you would really love to find people who nurture your vision and attend to unspoken needs. This is never a one-way street, however. People in the Pisces-Aries Cusp value reliability and take personal accountability seriously.
Insightful, intelligent, sensitive, quirky, determined, inventive, humorous
In the Zodiac round, yours is a place of solving problems in ways that no one else even considered. Sometimes the answer seems crazy to others, but overall you’re successful in giving sound advice. And by advice, you tender suggestions you feel THEY need, rather than imposing your own. That’s quite a gift, as are your active listening skills.
Headstrong, willful, boisterous, impetuous, inconsiderate, obstinate
You have intense beliefs and aren’t always good at considering you might be wrong, especially when someone directly challenges you. You can be tempted to take over conversations with all your impressive knowledge in social settings. This, in turn, squeezes everyone else out of the discussion. Instead, try the art of debate rather than lecturing.
In your mind’s eye, you see your partner as someone who can keep up with you in deep discussions and someone who offers support. This makes Earth signs good partners for you. You are not one to rush into a long-term relationship, however. Yes, you are in love with love, but recognize commitment takes more than mere emotion.
Being born on the Cusp of Rebirth means you are charismatic and charming. You draw people like moths to a flame. Unfortunately, all that attention can become overwhelming, so you seek after someone who really “sees” you, not just the surface. If someone is too smothering, you back up or back out.
Once partnered, this Cusp shares their emotions without reservation. Now, sometimes that means an outburst, but you always know where these people stand. Their significant other knows exactly how they feel at any given moment. Over time, this makes for a very healthy and honest relationship.
There is something good-natured and humorous in your fashion statement. It reflects a warm personality, never over the top, yet there’s always something that catches glancing eyes. You appreciate cutting a nice silhouette without being uncomfortable. Better still, it takes you but seconds to change your outfit from office to beach, since you have all your favorites lined up in the closet.
Careers for the Pisces-Aries cusp lean toward the creative side. You may write music, create fantastic recipes, write a novel (or computer code), or design cosmetics, for example. You may also feel drawn to jobs that tug on your heartstrings, like being a veterinarian. Avoid anything drab or overly repetitive. You’re not likely to find your bliss there.
