July 8 Horoscope

As a Cancer born on July 8th, you characterized by a fascinating mixture of sensitivity and mystery. You are quite comfortable in the world of emotions and find it a nearly effortless task to understand how those around you are feeling. At the same time, you are quite in touch with your own feelings, although you largely keep your emotional experiences to yourself, leaving those around you unaware. Your private nature is one of your greatest strengths, but also of great frustration to your loved ones who struggle to understand you at times.

Water is your paired element and your sign has the most fundamental relationship with water of all the 12 zodiac signs. The forceful and sometimes unpredictable nature of water causes you to experience your emotions in strong waves. From these waves you derive personal understanding, as well as the ability to sense changing tides in the feelings of others. Embrace these qualities to continue to grow as a compassionate individual. Take care to avoid the negative qualities of water, which include an overemotional and moody state.

The Cancer's ruling planet is the moon, but because you were born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also influenced by Pluto. The moon links you to intuition and sensitivity, while Pluto's influence materializes in a need for independence and control. This planetary combination makes you very unique among Cancers, as you are often less ruled by your emotions than the those of the other two Decans. You often attempt to let your practical influences out weigh your emotions, although this decision comes with great internal debate. You find refuge in close, loving relationships, where you feel free to let your guard down. Use your close relationships to allow yourself to be nurtured and to nurture others. Be careful to avoid jealousy, as it is also a common product of your planetary influence.

Your emotional intuition and reserved nature allows for great social success, as well as a wide range of career possibilities. Your desire for freedom could take you on a path towards self-employment, but you could just as easily find yourself in a field such as teaching or counseling. If creativity is your passion, you may want to express yourself in the arts, which was the path of Toby Keith and Kevin Bacon, who were also born on July 8th.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a hen scratching the ground to find food for her chicks. You take time to nurture the important projects and people in your life. You strive to be practical and fulfill your responsibilities. While your convictions may falter, which is only natural, stay true to this path, as it brings you great satisfaction.
