Being a Cancer born on June 26th, you are no stranger to emotions, but instead find comfort in understanding them. You are sometimes surprised with your natural ability to know what others are feeling and thinking. While it is tempting to use this gift to your advantage, you instead use it in the form of compassion and nurturing. These qualities are greatly appreciated by your friends and family.

Water

Water is the paired element of your sign and as a Cancer, you actually have the most fundamental connection with water of all the zodiac signs. While emotions seem to terrorize others as an untamed, unpredictable body of water, you have the ability to ride waves of emotion. You witness even the slightest ripple of distress in others and go to great lengths to tend to their needs. The positive emotional qualities of water will take you far in life, as long as you stay vigilant in guarding yourself from moodiness.

Your sign is ruled by the planetary influence of the moon, but because you were born in the first Decan, or part, of the sign, the moon's influence is twice is strong. It is the mysteries of the moon that tap into your deep emotional awareness. As though being guided by instinct, your intuition is one of your greatest assets when interacting with others. You are highly aware of your own emotional needs and therefore rely on love and closeness to feel secure. As long as you respect the boundaries of loved ones, you will always have the strong, loving relationships that you desire.

You will find satisfaction in a career where helping others is the focus. While careers in education, public service or social work would be fitting, its important to acknowledge the other indirect ways you can help others. Compassion can be achieved through entertaining and self-expression as well. Look to the positive work of Jennette McCurdy, who was also born on June 26th, if entertainment is your inetrest. Whichever career path you find yourself on, look to the friendly and reserved demeanor of Derek Jeter, another of your birthday twins, for inspiration.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is game birds feathering their nests. Almost instinctually, you have been taking the steps towards a mature self. You are aligning those qualities that are natural with a higher level of consciousness. This cooperation will create a greater chance of success for the next steps of your life.
