As a Cancer born on July 18th, you strengths lie in your emotional sensitivity and unfaltering optimism. You are very comfortable with your own emotional workings, as well as those of others. This ability makes it easy for you to have the right thing to say, a gift which your friends and family greatly appreciate. When times are rough, you have the ability to see the bright side of things and help to uplift others with your positive attitude.
You have a fundamental connection with water, as it is your sign's paired element. Water and emotions are a hand and glove fit, which explains why you ride the rocky waters of emotion with deep understanding. Your experiences have allowed you to sense when others are experiencing emotion, no matter how slight. Your connection with water will grow with your focus, which will only make you a more compassionate person. Stay weary of the negative influence of water, as completely diving into the waters of emotion can lead to moodiness.
You experience the planetary influence of two planets. The first being the moon, which is a testament to your sensitivity and emotional perceptiveness. Your second planetary influence comes from Neptune, which is reflected in your powerful imagination and connection to all that spiritual and supernatural. This unique combination is the cause for your dream inspired, romanticized way of dealing with the world. You often find yourself lost in fantasy, especially in relation to your love life. As it is possible to feel disappointment when reality doesn't quite live up to reality, your optimism can help lift your spirits. While you love companionship and take great satisfaction from it, you must also give yourself time alone to explore your thoughts and true feelings. Take care to avoid too much fantasy, as you may begin to rely to heavily on it for your happiness.
There are a variety of careers that match your natural skills for emotional understanding and creativity. Public relations, business and even education would all be a good fit. If you have political vision, you may find fulfillment as a community leader, which was the path of Nelson Mandela, who was also born on July 18th. If you feel your imaginative nature may require a more creative outlet, you find purpose entertaining others, such was the case with Vin Diesel, another of your birthday twins.
The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a violent storm in a canyon filled with expensive homes. Despite the vast spiritual and intellectual wealth that you have accumulated, a time may be coming where you must again rise to the occasion to counter forces out of your control. If this time has already found you, overcome the natural stress of the situation to reach the catharsis you desire.
