If you say that someone or something is on the cusp, you mean they are between two states, or are about to be in a particular state. I am sitting on the cusp of middle age. In architecture, the intersection of lobed or scalloped forms, particularly in arches (cusped arches) and tracery. Thus the three lobes of a trefoil (cloverleaf form) are separated by three cusps.

The imaginary line that divides one house or sign from another, although some house systems regard the cusp as marking the center of the house Cusps are a subject of much discussion and disagreement Some believe that a planet on the cusp of two houses or signs will share the influence of both, while others maintain that the cusp is the strongest point, and therefore a planet on the cusp will demonstrate most clearly the influence of the sign or house it is moving into A rationalization for this latter idea is that through progression, the planet will remain for the maximum time in the applying sign or house
