July 12 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Creativity and enterprise, practical skills, and intuitive insight are some of the qualities identified with your birthday. As a Cancerian, you are imaginative and idealistic, yet your natural business sense and an ability to present an unusual and original point of view often suggest that you are an objective thinker. This objectivity, however, can be challenged by your tendency to be indecisive or unpredictable.
The sub influence of your decanate ruler, Pisces, adds to your receptivity and usually implies that you can easily absorb the atmosphere around you. This influence also suggests that you can be prone to moods and therefore need a harmonious environment.
More often than not, worry and anxiety revolve around money issues and can interfere with your ability to resolve problems and find simple solutions. Nevertheless, your inspirational ideas and a bright outlook frequently give you the edge when the call is for originality.
As a perfectionist, your thoroughness or concentration enables you to pick up on ideas and methods very quickly, and with your communication skills you usually appear light and congenial.
A positive philosophy is essential to your well-being. By avoiding pessimism, you can focus your attention on the matter at hand rather than scatter and diffuse your energies through nervous haste.
After the age of ten, when your progressed Sun moves into Leo, there may be increased opportunities to develop strength, creativity, and self-expression. Your growing confidence is likely to continue to the beginning of your forties, when your progressed Sun enters Virgo. Your focus is then liable to change so that you become more pragmatic and discerning. At the age of seventy, when your progressed Sun enters Libra, you may experience another turning point as your interest turns more to relationships, harmony, and balance.

Your Secret Self
Many of your projects may center around home and its responsibilities. This sense of home could stretch out to the planet Earth itself, as you can be a true humanitarian. You feel things keenly and intensely and often have ideas that bring harmony out of chaos. You may feel that at times it seems too hard to achieve your objectives, but you have the dedication and capabilities for outstanding achievement.
Inside you are extremely sensitive and vulnerable, though on the surface you appear confident and capable. A quest for peace of mind may lead you to investigate metaphysics or spirituality as a way to develop inner serenity. Alternatively, you can be highly creative, with a need for emotional self-expression. Possessing high morals, you can be very supportive and often fight for a cause you believe in.
Work & Vocation
You have a creative approach to life that may manifest through writing or the arts, but as you are naturally sociable, it can also come out in business. Shrewd financial acumen points to a career in banking or real estate. Your excellent mind and communication skills indicate a tremendous potential to achieve; you may just have to guard against scattering your energies or overcome a tendency to doubt. A philosophical or humanitarian leaning may be satisfied through occupations such as the clergy or charity work, or becoming a philanthropist. If you stay in the same career, you are likely to be always looking for ways to change or improve the way you work.

The subinfluence of the number 7 month indicates that you are intelligent and a creative thinker. You like to make your own decisions, although at times you can be indecisive and unsettled.

• Negative: reserved, selfish, eccentric, uncooperative, overly sensitive, shy, lack of self-esteem
Love & Relationships
Idealistic and sensitive, you have intuitive powers that are at times very accurate, even if your need for security and love causes you to ignore your own instincts and thereby commit yourself to certain relationships whatever the cost. If you find yourself in unsuitable partnerships, guard against martyring yourself to those who fail to recognize your wonderful potential. By staying spontaneous and independent, you can develop your own inner powers and still enjoy loving relationships.
