July 4 Horoscope

As a Cancer born on July 4th, you are sensitive, sympathetic and no stranger to emotions. You've grown to accept the fact that you can sense exactly what others are thinking and feeling. Your emotional awareness does not always translate to openness, as you prefer to keep your feelings a mystery to others. Although those around you may find difficulty in understanding the workings of your mind, your compassionate nature makes you a valued companion.

Your paired element is water and as a Cancer, you have a more fundamental connection with water than any zodiac sign. If the soul is a vast ocean, the emotions are the waves that crash upon you. You ride these waves with deep understanding, which allows you to understand others so well. As you continue to embrace the positive qualities of water, your sensitivity to the human condition will continue to grow. Defend yourself against the negative qualities of water, which create a temperamental condition.

While the moon is the planetary ruler of your sign, because you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, your planetary influence is also shared with Pluto. Pluto is the planet of transformation and power, which makes an interesting combination with the deeply emotional and sensitive influence of the moon. These conflicting influences often cause an inner conflict between your emotions and logic. Don't let this problem discourage you, as there is much happiness to be found in loving, loyal relationships. Take caution to try and curb your jealous nature, as it will only negatively affect your relationships and friendships.

Although slightly reserved, you will be happiest in a career that is people oriented. Sales, business, or even politics would all be suitable career paths. If you are more inclined towards artistic expression, a career in entertainment may be rewarding. Look to the ambitious personality of Geraldo Rivera, who was also born on July 4th, for encouragement. Whatever you choose, let your personality shine, similarly to that of Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, another of your birthday twins.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is an elderly man facing a vast, dark space to the northeast. You find both fulfillment and strength in the acquisition of knowledge. You may even feel like you are on never-ending journey to find truth and understanding. This journey will not go unrewarded, as you will soon find a permanent sense of freedom in the truths you uncover.
