Cusp signs are people who are born near the intersection of two sun signs. The Pisces-Aries cusp is a person who is born near those dates that a Pisces and Aries connect to each other.
As you can probably already tell, whenever we’re dealing with a cusp sign, we have an astrological version of “hybrid vigour”.
You can probably also guess that this person will have traits of both the Pisces and the Aries, including the good side and the bad.
What you probably wouldn’t guess at least at first is that this combination, just like with hybrids in nature can produce something bigger and better than those two separate signs their own.
Just as if you take up a tomato plant from one variety, and you crossed it with a tomato plant from another variety, the resulting hybrid might taste better, be more resistant to disease, and need less water and less sun than its parents. This is called hybrid vigour.
This plays out all the time in cusp signs. One key idea you need to understand regarding the Pisces – Aries cusp and all cusp signs in general is that they’re not mere combinations of their parent signs.
They’re something more.
In many cases, this ability to reach higher and further than the separate sign that make up the cusp is due to the winning combination of the traits enabling them to do what they wouldn’t be able to normally do if they were born under a pure horoscope sign.
Keep this in mind as we explore the key traits of the Pisces Aries cusp personality.
A Winning Combination: Emotion and Boldness
At the most basic, the Pisces Aries cusp can be a winning combination. Imagine somebody who is emotionally deep, imagine somebody who navigates his world based on the emotional signals people are sending and interacts with those people on an emotional level.
This person of course is able to walk many doors. This person is welcome in the hearts of many people because he’s able to speak their emotional language. Normally, this type of person has to be gentle or at least very diplomatic.
Now, pair that type of personality with boldness and brashness fire in the belly. This can be a winning combination because let’s face it, salesmanship, executive leadership; it’s all about reading people.
It’s all about figuring out the signals that they send and taking action on it.
The Aries component of the Pisces-Aries cusp provides the boldness. The Pisces provides the emotional depth. Put this together and it can be a very powerful combination. You can be a sales or executive or management juggernaut.
If you are in the academic sphere, you would be a great teacher because you are able to read these signals, and you are able to find the energy to train people’s minds towards a certain direction. As you can see there are many positive aspects when it comes to the Pisces Aries cusp. However, there’s also a dark side.
A Losing Combination: Insecurity and Emotional Instability
The dark side of the Pisces-Aries cusp is the fact that the more the Pisces values emotional authenticity the more the Pisces becomes insecure. Pisces often ends up in emotional analysis paralysis because they tend to over analyze things.
Instead of getting to the truth of emotions and using this truth as a light to guide them throughout the world to higher levels of success, they often let this information defeat them, and they become overly sensitive and they become very petty.
Marry this with the emotional instability underlying the Aries’ brave front and you have the recipe for a disaster. You have the recipe for a person that is basically too insecure and too emotionally unstable to really reach higher than what’s put on his plate. This person can become emotionally dependent.
This person can easily become financially dependent.
It’s not surprising to me that many Pisces-Aries cusp signs are not living up to their fullest potential.
You have to understand just like with any other cusp signs, the Pisces-Aries cusp has a good side or a bad side. It all depends on the choices you make and the situations you put yourself in.
It’s All About Riding That Chain Reaction
Since the Pisces-Aries cusp is, by nature, a very emotional sign, your success or failure in life truly depends on how you ride that internal chain reaction as always happening in your mind.
What is this chain reaction?
There are external signals that the world is sending us all the time. We can’t help it. That’s just the real world sending us signals. We collect these signals through our five senses. However, we actively filter all these signals all the time.
We don’t respond or react to the vast majority of these signals. We tend to cherry pick the things that we pay attention to.
We do this when we draw mental pictures based on what happens outside us.
If somebody calls you a pig, it will make you laugh, or it makes you angry, or it will make you very sad depending on the mental picture you have. If the mental picture that you have is of a little child in grade school being teased and called a pig because you had weight problems, it would trigger specific emotions.
And these emotions would trigger physical reactions. We all ride this chain reaction all the time. This is why we make the decisions that we make. When we make those decisions, and we take those actions, we change our world.
If you are happy right now, congratulations, you have mastered that chain reaction to an extent that you are able to produce happiness.
If you’re unhappy and frustrated right now, I’m sorry to tell you but it is part of the mental pictures that you choose to focus on.
It’s all about riding that chain reaction, and this is the advice for the Pisces-Aries cusp.
The big difference between the winning combination described above, and the losing combination below is it all boils down to how you ride that chain reaction.
Pay attention to how you filter signals. Pay attention to the mental pictures that come to your mind. When you are able to control what mental picture you allow to form in your mind, you are able to control your external reality.
The truth of the matter is this is the only part you can really control. It’s very hard to control emotions, and it’s definitely very hard to control your physical actions.
Once you’re caught up in your emotions by riding that chain reaction the right way, the Pisces-Aries cusp can use this great combination and high-breed vigour to climb ever higher in life and become happier.
However, it’s very easy for the Pisces-Aries cusp to get defeated and become overly sensitive and really fail to get his or her act together. It’s your choice.
