For example, if a person was born on April 19, it might be difficult to determine if that person is really a Taurus or an Aries. If you were born on a cusp, an astrologer will need to know the latitude and longitude of the place where you were born as well as your exact time of birth. These pieces of information will allow the astrologer to accurately calculate your sun sign.
