Being a Cancer born on June 22nd, you are creative and thoughtful, but you are most comfortable in the realm of emotions. While some people struggle with their feelings and the feelings of others, you never have this problem. Instead, you sense what's bothering your friends and peers with ease. It is emotional closeness that makes you feel most secure in life.

Water

The Cancer's paired element is water, and out of all 12 zodiac signs, you have the most cardinal relationship with the element. You are quite comfortable on the seas of emotion, as you notice every wave and every ripple. This gift for observation is the key to your sensitive and compassionate nature. Take time to avoid water's negative influences however; which include over emotional states and moodiness.

The Moon is the ruling planet of your sign and because you were born in the first Decan, or part, of the sign, you experience two servings of the moon's influence. As the planet of reaction, the moon is deeply tied with emotion. Being aware of the most minute emotional cues, you are undyingly nurturing and generous. While naturally a selfless giver, you still require the company of close loved ones to feel complete. As with any caring, emotional person, there always is a risk of becoming overly sentimental. Take care to not let your emotions overshadow your objectivity when dealing with situations.

Your creativity and compassion give you many career options. Your emotional understanding would make a career in education or social work a real possibility. You may also be well suited for entertainment, where your firm grasp on emotions could give you an edge. Look to the work of Kris Kristofferson and Meryl Streep, both born on June 22nd, for inspiration.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a man on a magic carpet admiring the vast land below him. You are on the cusp of expanding your consciousness. As you reach a higher level of personal and social awareness, you will become more objective. Enjoy the broader perspective, as many will never obtain it.
