As a Cancer born on July 20th, you are well known for a positive outlook and emotional sensitivity. You have a special talent for making the best out of situations and getting the best out of those around you. You have an intuitive gift for understanding the feelings and thoughts of others. Instead of using that gift for manipulation, you chose to be empathetic and uplifting. Similarly, in bad situations, you are most likely the person to bring optimism to the group. Your friends and family greatly appreciate these qualities, making you a highly sought after companion.

Water

The Cancer's paired element is water and out of all the zodiac signs, you have the most fundamental relationship with water. Seeing as emotions can be as rocky as the seas, it's no wonder that water is directly connected with feelings. In times when you experience forceful waves of emotion, you gain valuable experience that you apply to understanding others. Further embrace of the positive qualities of water will help you grow into an even more compassionate and empathetic person. As with any positive, there are also negatives, so be weary of the dangers of becoming moody and overly emotional.

Your sign is ruled by the moon, but because you are born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you also experience a good helping of Neptune's power. There is no doubt that the moon has influenced your sensitivity and intuition, but you may be surprised to realize that it is Neptune that is responsible for your bursts of creativity, imagination and spiritualism. The result of your planetary influence is a kind, romantic soul; one of a dreamer. You are enthralled with possibilities and often take refuge in the realm of fantasy. In terms of life and love, this results in sometimes unrealistic expectations, but it also leads to very creative outcomes. Although you find much comfort in close relationships, take care to set aside time to develop on your own. Although your imagination is one of your greatest allies, it can also be your greatest enemy if you find yourself constantly outside the bounds of the here and now.

Your sensitive nature and creative expression make a variety of career paths open to success. You are caring by default, which makes compassionate careers such as teaching and social work a clear option. It just may be that your true passion is found in artistic expression, which was the case with Carlos Santana, who was also born on July 20th. If you feel you are born to entertain, look at the inspiring work of Natalie Wood, another of your birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a Greek muse weighing new born twins in golden scales. Your intuition drives you to find the true value in things, which allows you to weigh and present alternatives internally. Even if your personal revelations sometimes alter from that of society, trust your intuition.
