The Sign the indicator is actually in, is dominant, but it shares some qualities with the previous and next Sign in the very early and late degrees.
I'm pretty sure a lot of us are of this opinion, which seems rather apparent to me, personally. Aries on the verge of Taurus, and Taurus within that 5 degree range of Aries, for example, aren't the same in effect as pure Aries and Taurus by themselves [IMO].
Any comments?

Let's see if anyone else is blending Signs at the boundary-cusps, not realizing how unconventional it really is. Remember, I'm talking about Modern here. Trads will do whatever was done before. That's their job!
Zodiac Sign Cusps: What Does It Mean to Be Born on a Cusp?
there's an in-depth discussion
about the use of zodiac sign cusps in astrology,
and what it means when a person is born on a cusp.
Cusps have recently become a topic of conversation in the astrological community
because some pop astrology sites are treating them almost like a third sign
that blends the qualities of two neighboring signs.
This has elicited some push-back in the astrological community
with some saying that cusps are not a thing and have no intrinsic meaning
aside from being boundaries.
In episode 177 of The Astrology Podcast astrologers Chris Brennan and Austin Coppock
set out to explore this issue, and we discuss the pros and cons
of both sides of the cusp debate.

As an alternative to actual Sign-blending, where one Sign is beginning its transformation into the next (my viewpoint), they have another explanation: The Signs are "activated" by the indicator--Sun, Moon, Planet, or Ascendant, etc. These have Orbs, meaning an area of influence that extends beyond its "needle-point", precise position. And, the Orb-influence begins to activate both Signs at once at the cusps, causing the mix of Sign qualities exhibited by the indicator.

Re: Overlapping Sign-Blending

I completely agree.

That's why I was happy to see some astrologers divide each sign in three decanates. That way, the first decanate is reserved for people with half previous sign, half current sign, and people in 3rd decanate are half current sign and half next sign.

I do see it gradually. In fact, I was considering using colored numbers as codes for birthdates, that way a combination of colors you have would easily show you which amount of your personality belongs to the next/previous sign and which amount belongs to the current sign.

Besides, it's common sense - how can 1 day, or even 1 hour for that matter, be associated with a complete change of personality? It's not like there's a giant gear with different speeds in the milky way, downshifting and upshifting when 21st in a month comes.

Oh and might I add couple of astonishingly easy examples: I mean, just imagine the mixture of a capricorn and aquarius (20. january dob). That guy is silent, but always surrounded with people. Can't miss that combination.

Or 21. june for that matter. Philosophical with millions of interests, yet argumentative, unchangable and introverted.

In fact, that is why I prefer using Vedic astrology for people on the cusps. Because if you're on a cusp in Western astrology, in vedic you'll be purely previous sign, and most of the people find those personalities much more like them (even though that's entirely subjective at this point - reality will be, there's always a cardinal trait of the next sign involved, but people don't want complications, they just want to hear something they wanted to hear and stick to it).
