Being a Cancer born on July 1st, you are gushing with creativity and sensitivity. Your mind is sharp and you often use it to understand how those around you are thinking and feeling. While others struggle to find the tools to be sympathetic, it is one of your greatest tools. You approach people with compassion and a genuine desire to help them. These qualities make you loved and valued by your friends and family.

Water

Your sign has the most fundamental connection with the water element, which is why water has a special influence on your personality. Like an ocean, emotions can range from calm ripples to strong, forceful waves. You have the ability to ride these waves and gain understanding from them. Your experience and intuition allow you to help others have the same fortitude. As you embrace the positive qualities of water, take care to avoid the moodiness that is discovered to be water's negative qualities.

The moon is Cancer's planetary ruler and as you are born in the first Decan, or part, of the sign, the moon's effect is doubled. The moon's connection with emotions are strong and deep. Don't be alarmed if your emotional intuition seems to be a psychic power at times, as these qualities are reflected in your highly sensitive and nurturing nature. Your emotional nature makes close, loving relationships an all-important prerequisite for your security.

Your creativity and understanding of human emotion will be the source of many career opportunities. You may feel comfortable in management, but your skills may be more suited for the political arena, even if you start on the community level. Look to the warm, compassionate personality of Princess Diana, who was also born on July 1st, as inspiration. You may be inclined to more musical expression, as was the path of Missy Elliott, another of your birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a clown caricaturing well-known personalities. You have a well-established understanding of human nature. While others find this ability refreshing, you use it to develop an independent and increasingly objective mind. The more your perspective is defined, the more you will grow.
