Being born on the last day of the Cancer sign, you are characterized by your optimism, empathy and intuition. Your close group of friends can always count on you for a positive outlook and making the best out of an otherwise bad situation. You are very comfortable with both your emotions and the emotions of others. You can easily recall a dozen times when you seemed to sense what another person was feeling or thinking. It's this ability that allows you to always know the right thing to say, which is greatly appreciated by those closest to you.

Your sign's paired element is water, and you actually have the most fundamental relationship with water of any of the zodiac signs. The unpredictable and forceful nature of water ties heavily to the same qualities found in emotions, which explains why you often feel overcome with emotions as if hit by a strong wave. You learn quickly from your experiences and are able to ably your emotional understanding to those you interact. These qualities are key to your compassion, but remember that they also create the risk of becoming overly emotional and moody.

The moon is the ruling planet of the Cancer, but because you are born on the last day of the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you also receive direct planetary influence by Neptune. The moon, being the planet most heavily tied with emotions, is responsible for your sensitivity and compassion. Neptune, while also tied to emotions, brings the added benefit of imagination and spirituality. You often notice that your head is in the clouds, playing in a world of possibilities and fantasy. This is true for both everyday matters and it is especially true in love. You are a romantic and are most excited with the promise of romantic novelty. You may become too heavily invested in your imagination, which leads to a lack of satisfaction with reality. Luckily, your optimistic nature counters any possibility of poor spirits as you can quickly hope for the best in the future.

Your imagination, cultural interest and sensitivity can make choosing a career difficult, mainly because there are so many options. While teaching, human resources and other people-based careers are always open, you may find more fulfillment in a creative field. Take advantage of your unique ability to express ideas creatively and make others laugh. Look to the work of comedian Robin Williams and Don Knotts, who were both born on July 21st, for inspiration.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a daughter of the American Revolution. Through your interest in the world around you, you have grown to value your heritage and that of others. It is thanks to this great amount of cultural awareness, that you have developed a nearly glorified view of the past. Use your appreciation of the past to enrich your present and future.
