Happy Birthday, Cancer! Charismatic, magnanimous, and sometimes moody, you fight for people and beliefs you cherish and frequently arouse respect and affection in those who cross your path. Although you're compassionate and emotional, you're no wilting flower. Tougher than steel and harder than diamonds, you can withstand years of struggle without losing your sense of humor or ability to love. Ambitious and determined, you're doggedly persistent and tend to attract impressive opportunities. Others with more talent but less determination can't hold a candle to you. Once you're clear on what you want, it's as good as done. Many of you seem to "will" things into being. You need a passionate mission or job you really love. Without meaningful work and a worthwhile connection to the world, you can spiral into addictive or other self-destructive behavior. You have almost no patience once you've formulated a plan. You immediately want to get started, instead of going through days, weeks or months of planning. Your friends become part of your extended family. They get the same treatment any sibling would. You attract money and fame, often unexpectedly. Your birthday gives you an extra boost and a big splash of star power. Whether or not you use it is entirely up to you. Despite your fears, worries, and trepidation, you may be thrown upon the world's stage. Curiously, no matter how shy you are, you enjoy the applause and approval a public arena offers. Although you treasure your privacy and love to spend hours by the seashore, you eventually long for the stimulation of city life, exciting people, and attention. Shy or not, you're a born leader or entertainer. Your legs may be both strong and attractive, as well as your eyes. Your face is probably round, whether you're thin or not. Caring for others, especially children and animals, touches your heart and makes you feel needed.
