Cusp-a point of transition, as from one historical period to the next;
the borders between the twelve astrological signs.
You are considered to be "on the cusp" if you were born
within a day or two of the beginning or end of any sign.

Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord

Readings of the Day

On entering the house
they saw the child with Mary his mother.
They prostrated themselves and did him homage.
Then they opened their treasure.
Matthew 2:11
