July 11 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Practical skills, productivity, and a need for security are often identified with your birthday. As a Cancerian, you are sensitive and imaginative, with a forceful and determined personality. Receptive and attuned to form and structure, you can combine your practical skills with your artistic talents. With your ability to establish a workable system, you can often develop your natural technical, organizational, and business skills.
The subinfluence of your decanate ruler, Scorpio, suggests that although you are sensible and practical, you must learn to trust your strong instincts or first impressions and recognize your great inner strength. Your efficient and down-to-earth approach also implies that you are outspoken and direct; nevertheless, you may have to guard against a tendency to be impatient or stubborn.
Though you are often blessed with good fiscal circumstances, if you do find yourself a little short, your troubles are usually short-lived. Although your financial prospects are favorable, a strong emphasis on work implies that through perseverance and concentrated effort you can take advantage of the many opportunities that come your way.
Being able to do a job well, you take pride in your work; as a perfectionist, you are inclined to be thrifty and economical, with a strong sense of duty. A lot may depend, however, on your ability to exercise self-control. This may also suggest that at times a sense of duty dominates the inclinations of your heart.
At the age of eleven your progressed Sun moves into Leo for a thirty-year period. With this influence, your self-confidence and creativity gradually increase. After the age of forty- one, when your progressed Sun moves into Virgo, you are likely to become more patient and analytical. This may include providing helpful practical service to others. There is another turning point at the age of seventy-one, when your progressed Sun moves into Libra. This influence brings an added emphasis to all your relationships and may encourage a greater interest in harmony and beauty.

Your Secret Self
Although stability may be one of your prime objectives, an inner emotional restlessness may urge you to look for new prospects and opportunities. A possible dissatisfaction with your lot may be overcome by developing patience or by finding harmony within yourself. If this need for action and adventure is not recognized, you may turn to escapism to compensate.
Opportunities for work may come out of the blue and could involve a change of residence or travel to new locations. Since you are a perfectionist and multitalented, your versatility suggests that you are capable of applying your skills and producing excellent work in whatever you do. With your strong instincts, you often apply your intuition to your judgment and can successfully use it in your daily routine.

Equally, you may be successful in sales, particularly dealing with items for the home. Interested in people, you can excel at promotions and public relations.
