As a Cancer born on July 6th, you are sensible, yet quite comfortable in the realm of internal emotions. Ever the enigma, your own family may even struggle to discover your true self. Although you have a tendency to keep your emotions and thoughts private, you have the ability to sense the feelings of those around you. As a result you are highly compassionate and sympathetic.

Water

Water is your paired element and your sign actually has the most fundamental connection with water of all the zodiac signs. As though hit by strong waves, you sometimes are overcome by your emotions. While this may be an uncomfortable phenomenon for others, you ride the "waves" of emotion with deep understanding. It is this comfortability that allows you to sense so clearly when others are having emotional experiences. As you continue to embrace these positive qualities of water, your understanding will continue to grow. Be aware of becoming too immersed in your emotions, as the negative qualities of water bring bout feelings of moodiness.

The moon is the planetary ruler of your sign, but because you are born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also influenced strongly by Pluto. It is this planetary planet that explains for a constant struggle between your emotions and reason. The Moon directly connects to emotional understanding and foresight, while Pluto influences your need for control and power. You may find you have an undying desire for security, which is why you feel incomplete without close, committed relationships. When you do find the closeness you seek, your nurturing nature is revealed.

Your understanding of others paired with strong leadership skills create a wide range of career opportunities. You may be attracted to business and entrepreneurship, similarly to the ventures of 50 Cent, who was also born on July 6th. If politics are your interest, you may find satisfaction in political office, which was the path of George W. Bush, another of your birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a man studying a mandala with the help of ancient book. You have a deep-rooted need for understanding and take the task very seriously. While you are open to new concepts, you make sure to not lose yourself nor your foundation in the process.
