If you were born on the Pisces-Aries cusp, you're probably not a typical Pisces. But that's totally okay because some of the most interesting people are born with their sun on the Pisces-Aries cusp. They are dramatic fighting fish who are passionate, romantic, and mesmerizing, and they have a unique aura and strong spiritual energy that can either attract or scare others.

Pisces-Aries Cusp Birth Dates

Horoscope cusps are imaginary lines that separate one sign from the next. If your birthday falls between March 18th and March 22nd, you might be a Pisces-Aries cusper. If your Sun is on the 27th, 28th, or 29th degree of Pisces, you're definitely a Pisces-Aries cusper. However, to find the exact degree of your Sun, you'll need a calculated birth chart.

Pisces-Aries: The Cusp of Rebirth

Pisces is the mystic, the dreamer, and the magician of the zodiac. Aries is the warrior who takes on every challenge and finds joy in being free and alive. If you're a Pisces born when the sun was on the verge of entering Aries, you're a Pisces with fire in your belly, and you have an innate ability to use the power of imagination and emotion to create a new life force.

Pisces and Aries

Pisces is the mutable water sign of the zodiac that's ruled by Neptune. Aries is the cardinal fire sign that's ruled by Mars. The last 10 degrees of Pisces is the Scorpio decan of Pisces. Scorpio is the fixed water sign ruled by Pluto.

Planetary Influences

Neptune is the planet of fantasy.  Mars is the planet of action and initiative, and Pluto is the planet of transformation and rebirth. Due to the influence of these three planets, those born on the Pisces-Aries cusp are prone to push limits and, as a result, experience dramatic events and intense relationships. Often, their lives will have them questioning their beliefs and testing their faith. It's not uncommon for them to embark on a spiritual journey to find deeper meaning in life.

Mutable Water and Cardinal Fire Influence

Fire and water don't really mix, but Aries's cardinal fire can make Pisces's mutable water active. When water boils, steam is produced, and steam can be hot and scolding. Pisces-Aries has an internal steam engine of sorts that drives them. While this mix can allow them to combine their psychic sensitivities with fearlessness, it can also create an immature need to act impulsively and sometimes aggressively.

Pisces-Aries Cusp Compatibility & Romance

The earth signs — Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn — are the best match for a Pisces-Aries. Earth sign individuals are practical, realistic, and can offer the grounding and direction needed by these imaginative and passionate individuals who are often prone to assert themselves unwisely.

Famous Pisces-Aries Individuals

Perhaps the best example of the Pisces-Aries personality is Edgar Cayce, born on March 18, 1877, with his sun at 28+ degrees of Pisces. Edgar Cayce was a psychic who claimed to channel his higher self. Other famous Pisces-Aries are:

  • Bruce Willis: March 19, 1955, Sun 28 Pisces
  • Adam Levine: March 18, 1979, Sun 27 Pisces
  • Harvey Weinstein: March 19, 1952, Sun 29 Pisces
  • Queen Latifah: March 18, 1970, Sun 27 Pisces

Being Born on a Cusp

Some astrologers use cusps, others don't, and others believe you were born on a cusp if your sun is on the first three degrees of a sign. Cusps are a bit controversial. However, there is logic to the cusps when you consider the progressed Sun, which travels one degree forward in a birth chart every year. If you were born when the sun was on the verge of entering Aries, from a very young age (0-3 years old), you began integrating some traits and qualities of Aries into your evolving personality. You'll always be a Pisces, but by the time you started school, you were a bit of a blend of Pisces and Aries.
