Astrology and Dating

I’m not an expert at astrology. So much of it fascinates me though, so let me share the parts I like.
It can be difficult to date your sign unless one or both of you are on the cusp. In astrology, a cusp, from the Lain for spear or point, is the imaginary line that separates a pair of consecutive signs in the zodiac. Often the cusp occurs around the 20th to the 24th of each month. 

An exception to dating your own sign is Virgo. Virgo men are drawn to the arts and traditional women's fields like cooking, and Virgo women often have a masculine way of looking at the world. Virgos do what's called a switcheroony, like in the song, Satin Doll, written in 1953 with lyrics by my favorite, Johnny Mercer. His switcheroony was a play on the word switcheroo, an unexpected reversal, often for humor. 

My astrology go-to book is Love Signs, by Linda Goodman, which gives info about love compatibility with all combinations of signs. I'm Pisces, by the way, and so far, Pisces men have only been my friends, not my dates.
