Surviving Mercury in Retrograde always feels like such an accomplishment.

Each of the twelve Sun signs correspond to one of the four basic elements of nature. Usually you feel most drawn to the element that you are born under and can work with it the easiest when doing spells and/or rituals.Those born on the cusp (three days either side of the changing from one astrological house to the next) have the advantage of having two elements they may work with well and/or drawn to. Many time though those born on the cusp feel more drawn to the sign their birth date falls closer to, for example someone born May 21st is on the cusp of Taurus and Gemini may feel a pull more towards Taraus which is Earth then Gemini which is Air or a combination of both.
