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.

James Jacques Tissot 

 Jesus said to his disciples:

"Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets.

I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.

Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away,

not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter

will pass from the law,

until all things have taken place.

Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments

and teaches others to do so

will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven.

But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments

will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven."

 Matthew 5:17-19
 The Law and the Prophets are symbolized by Moses and Elijah, the very two who appear with Jesus at the transfiguration on the mountain.

Does my life give example to others that I am obedient to the will of God?

Do I obey the two great commandments?

Love God with your whole being; love your neighbor as yourself.
