Being a Cancer born on July 7th, you have the unique gift of emotional sensitivity. Although you witness others struggle to understand feelings, you have always naturally been in tune with your feelings and the feelings of those around you. Understanding is not to be confused with complete openness however, as you much rather keep your feelings to yourself. It is this secrecy that makes you quite mysterious to even your closest friends and family.

Water

Your sign has a fundamental relationship with water and it is this relationship with water that ties so heavily to your emotional aptitude. Like thrashing waves, you sometimes experience emotions with great force, but you ride these waves with deep understanding. You see the rocking waters of emotion that others experience as well and are sensitive to even the smallest ripple in their being. Embrace these qualities to continue to grow your compassion and sympathy, but be careful to avoid becoming overly submerged in the influence of water, as it may lead to emotional instability.

While the moon is the planetary ruler of your sign, because you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also influenced by the planet Pluto. The moon is the planet of emotions and nearly psychic intuition. Pluto's influence is quite different, as it is focused on transformation, power and control. The combination of these very distinct influences causes an internal struggle between your mind and your heart at times. This may be frustrating, but you will find your stresses to lessen when you find the close, loyal relationships you seek. Be careful to avoid your tendency to let jealousy affect your close relationships, as this is one of the negative aspects of your planetary influence.

Although finding a career path is easier said than done, your intuition and understanding allow numerous possibilities for success. As you enjoy power, you may find great satisfaction in management or business. Embrace your needs to dabble in arts or other forms of expression, as it also may be your calling. In any career, let your creativity shine. Look to the ground breaking work of Ringo Starr and Pierre Cardin, who were both born on July 7th, for encouragement.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a seed growing into knowledge and life. Through a combination of life experiences and formed values, you are approaching a more complete consciousness. Be sure to integrate your spirituality into your understanding of the world around you, as it is a key component of your personal growth.
