July 5 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Optimistic, adventurous, and multitalented, you are revealed by your birthday to be an intuitive Cancerian with a strong desire to achieve and accomplish. Although you are imaginative and have practical skills, without patience and perseverance many of your ideas will remain on the drawing board.
Possessing excellent business sense, you can be a shrewd investor involved in large enterprises and speculations. The subinfluence of your decanate ruler, Cancer, suggests that you seek ways to transform your life. This influence, however, also implies that you may have to overcome an inclination to exploit situations. More often than not, you believe that money is power, and indeed on many occasions it is; however, by seeing only the material benefits you can miss out on the great insight into what is really worthwhile in life.
Even if you are self-disciplined and hardworking, you often have extravagant taste, and acquisitions are important to your sense of worth. As a practical idealist with leadership ability, you do have foresight and vision. With these skills you are frequently able to commercialize your gifts through self-promotion. You have large dreams, and whatever you do in life, you want to do big. This need to expand and extend may indicate, however, that inner restlessness or dissatisfaction with your current situation can encourage you to push yourself even further.
After the age of seventeen, when your progressed Sun moves into Leo, your power, creativity, and confidence increase and you are likely to become more adventurous. At the time your progressed Sun moves into Virgo, when you are age forty-seven, you become more discriminating and efficient. There is a likelihood of a growing interest in health matters or in being of service to others.
