5 Reasons Why People Born On The Leo-Virgo Cusp Are A Unique Hybrid

Horoscopes and astrology have always been a significant point of interest for many.

Whether we truly believe in it or not, it's nice to identify with predictions and character traits that we feel suit our innermost desires and thoughts.

While I am not sure how accurate our stars can be in regard to predicting our future, I do believe our signs are a pretty strong predictor of our personalities and internal state.

With that said, I have noticed that while there is a great deal of literature available to each sign, there is a group of us that are often forgotten in the world of astrology: the people who fall on the cusp.

Growing up, I noticed some horoscopes identified me as a Leo, while others identified me as a Virgo.

What did this mean? It meant my birthday fell on the cusp between one sign and the next.

I was, in a sense, a Leo-Virgo hybrid.

This isn't to say there is only a small group of us, either. Many people born close on the cusp time frame may find themselves constantly identifying with traits from both signs.

Welcome, my fellow hybrid friends.

So why should these cusp babies be of interest, you may wonder?

Well, most people would assume Leos and Virgos to be proverbial opposites; the sun and the moon, fire and earth. We all know of the undeniable prowess, strength and passion of a Leo, but when those traits are combined with the noted wisdom, eloquence and sensitivity of a Virgo, you have a whole new beast.

As such, I think there are a few things everyone needs to know about our kind, even if we may often be forgotten as a category of our own.

Leo-Virgos are the Perfect Balance Between Unforgivably Bold and Cautiously Considerate

While Leos are known for their ability to, quite literally, take no prisoners and assert command in almost any situation, the Virgo side of the equation helps to bring this fiery trait back down to earth.

Virgos are known to be cool, calm and collected. They are more likely to step back and keep an analytic eye on a situation, rather than push their way to the center of it, like a Leo.

As such, the Leo-Virgo cusp makes for an interesting combination when properly understood.

While the individuals will likely still display the strength, assertion and passion of the Leo sign, the Virgo influence will help them find the right balance and prevent their strength from coming across as overpowering or too demonstrative.

When it comes to business practice or relationships, this is a killer instinct to have.

When times get tough, whether in the office or in the relationship, someone born on the Leo-Virgo cusp will likely have the capacity to talk through the issue in a reserved, cautious manner, while still taking the reins and being proactive about the situation, as his or her inner fire demands.

Leo-Virgos Will Make The Best Lovers

I think all signs have reasons to believe they are the best in certain categories, and I am not here to fight that, but I do believe people born on the Leo-Virgo cusp have the potential to make the best lovers.

Leos, after all, are known for their passion, aggression and intensity in the bedroom. Leos are extroverts; they identify as fearless creatures who are ruled by instinct and passion.

The Leo sign is a fire sign, and when we think of passion, we want that fire. I'm talking every nerve in your body at attention and pulsing with heat and intensity kind of fire.

So, what do Virgos bring to this mix?

Virgos are known to be extremely observant, astute and inherent perfectionists. When combined with Leo's blatant passion in the realm of love, you get an individual who is not only insatiable, but patient, tender and attuned to your emotions and needs.

On the other side of that equation, the Leo influence helps bring the Virgo in them alive in areas where they may otherwise be timid.

Of course, flames can burn out over time, but with this kind of substance, you shouldn't have to worry about that.

Leo-Virgos Will Thrive In The Spotlight, But Not Steal It

People born on this cusp have the fun-loving nature of a Leo, while still maintaining some of the reservation attributed to the Virgo sign.

While Leos are known to demand and steal the spotlight at any opportunity, the Virgo pull will help to keep this need at bay, while the Leo influence will ensure that when the spotlight is cast upon them, they will be undeniable in their appeal.

Leo-Virgos are the type of people who have no problem entertaining a crowd with both grace and grandeur, but can also be content when the attention is on someone else.

This helps to ensure that the Leo influence doesn't rub anyone the wrong way, and kindness and consideration for others outweighs the need to be recognized, appreciated and loved by all, as we Leos crave.

Leo-Virgos Are An Intellectual Force To Be Reckoned With

Virgos are known for their intelligence and methodology, while Leos are known for their instinct, drive and inherent charm.

This makes for the deadliest of combinations. These are people who are intellectually savvy with the ability to think eloquently on their feet and establish critical, working relationships with everyone they meet.

They know when to turn on the charm, how to bring someone over to their side and they have the brains to back it up.

Not only that, but the Leo drive and Virgo perfectionism will ensure that they stop at nothing to achieve what they've set out to do.

Have no doubt, the Leo-Virgos you meet are out to make some serious waves, and they will.

Leo-Virgos Know How To Have A Good Time And, More Importantly, They Will Always Have Your Back

While Virgo's are often chastised for the tendency to be too high-strung, inflexible or skeptical, Leos are known to be spontaneous, bold and the type of people to "go with the flow" without fear.

This combination makes for someone who isn't too reckless, but still knows how to let loose and have one hell of a time.

Not only that, but Leos are known for their intense loyalty, almost to a fault. This trait transfers over to those born under the Leo-Virgo cusp; these are the people who will always have your back.

Don't be mistaken; they won't be walked over, but they will always put themselves out for the people in their life.

These individuals are passionate about life, and equally passionate about the people they share it with.
