The Cusp of Magic (June 19-24) coincides with the Summer Solstice, when in the northern hemisphere the days are the longest and the nights are the shortest.

This time has traditionally been a most enchanted period, during which spirits of the woodland abound and creatures of the long twilight hours frolic during their so called “midsummer night” revels. Shakespeare’s play “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and the music it inspired Mendelssohn to write both convey this magical mood.

Romantic figures born during this cusp include Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Kris Kristofferson, Josephine Beauharnais (Napoleon’s wife), Aung San Suu Kyi, Benazir Bhutto and Errol Flynn.


It is interesting to note that American composer Terry Riley, born during this cusp himself, wrote a string quartet for the Kronos Quartet entitled “The Cusp of Magic,” named after this Personology period, and dedicated it to “his dear friend Gary Goldschneider.”

The Cusp of Magic is a highly romantic time, so you can expect an upsurge of your romantic feelings and a need to express them. At the same time you will have to be careful not to spin out of control in this area or to allow your illusion and fantasy to lead you astray.

Dating, partying, and going out with exciting, attractive and romantic people can all be expected and welcomed. Who knows, this could be a time in which that soul mate you have been searching for for years finally arrives on the scene. If not, then just enjoy yourself with one or more partners.
