I don't want to brag, but that's a pretty impressive lineup of like-minded individuals blowing out candles the same month as me. If you were born in the month of July, your astrological sign is either Cancer (up to July 22nd) or Leo (7/23 forward). Thanks to Zodiac.com, the characteristics of a Cancer and Leo are described as follows. Cancer is a mysterious sign, filled with contradictions. The crab is Cancer's ruling animal and it suits Cancers well, they can come out of their shell and fight but they can also hide in their shell skittering away back into the depths of the ocean .They are very unpredictable. With cancer, there is always something more than meets the eye, for they are always partially hidden behind the shell. A Cancer wants security and comfort, yet seeks new adventure. They are very helpful to others yet sometimes can be cranky and indifferent. Cancer has a driving, forceful personality that can be easily hidden beneath a calm, cool exterior. They have a deep psyche and intuitive mind that is hidden from the world. Cancers are deeply sensitive and easily hurt, this might be why they have their defense shell in place, to avoid being hurt by others. They are nurturers so they surround themselves with people, whom after a while can offend or hurt a cancer without even knowing they did so, therefore Cancer's protective shell keeps them safe from hurt. They are complex, fragile, unpredictable and temperamental and need constant support and encouragement, more than any other astrology sign, Cancer needs to be needed. When cancer gets the support it needs, it has a tremendous amount to offer in return. When cancer gets offended, they tend to sulk instead of confronting the persons face to face. This needlessly prolongs the pain and suffering. Cancer is very possessive, not just with material possessions but with people as well. Cancer will always want to stay in touch with old friends and anyone who has ever been close to them, because it is easier to maintain a friendship then attempt to learn to trust a new person. It is easier this way for them emotionally. If you befriend a Cancer, you will stay friends for a long time. Cancer makes the perfect mother, and in fact this is the sign that represents motherhood. They have unconditional love and caring more so then any other astrology sign. Cancers are very intuitive. Most of the psychics of the world are Cancer astrology signs. They have an excellent memory and are very observant and can read people very well. With their strong intuition, sensitivity, powers of observation and intelligence, Cancers will have great success in anything they undertake. Leo is the lion, this well suited symbol represents Leo very well. They possess a kingdom which they protect and cherish. The kingdom could be anything from work to home to a partner. Leos are high esteemed, honorable and very devoted to the ones they care about. Leo is always center stage and full of flair, they enjoy basking in the spotlight. A Leo always makes their presence known. Leos are full of energy that acts like a magnet for other people. Others are attracted to Leo's wit, charm, and what they have to say for they speak of things grand and very interesting. Leo will never settle for second best and will work hard to achieve the best results. Public image is very important to Leo, with luxurious possessions and ways of life; this keeps the public image in high standing. They will do whatever it takes to protect their own reputation. People are attracted to Leo's zest for life and their warm spirit. They have the ability to lift up one's spirits and provide encouragement when times are rough. Their enthusiasm attracts people, Leos are social butterflies, not because they want to be but because people always naturally gravitate and surround the Leo. Leos are very difficult people to not like. Leos are very generous, kind and open-hearted people .If a Leo is crossed, they will strike back with force but they are not one to hold a grudge, they easily forgive, forget and move on. Leos are always trying to make things right in the world, they have larger than life emotions and they need to feel like they have accomplished something at the end of the day. They react to situations with action instead of sitting back and thinking about it, they are not impulsive however because they look at the future and consider consequences of their actions. Leos are extremely sensitive but they hide that very well. Leos love praise and flattery; their egos demand respect and adoration. Leo is all about pride. That is so me. There was a time, when I was younger, that I wanted to get a tattoo of a mighty lion across my back or chest to signify strength and courage. But, by the time I turned 12, it seemed a bit extreme. I eventually settled for a tattoo of Simba, from Disney's The Lion King, on my left butt cheek. It's an adorable likeness of the animated lion cub. Maybe one day I'll add Timon and Pumbaa to the other cheek. July 4th is commonly referred to as the birthday of our nation, the good ole United States of America. Perhaps you've heard of it? Our annual birthday party for the country is a thing of beauty complete with celebrations, parades, concerts, 5K and 10K fun-runs, hot dog eating contests, BBQs, pool activities, egg tosses and fireworks.That's the kind of birthday a man can only dream of, but dream I do. Happy birthday to me!
