June 23 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Intuitive and receptive, with an ability to quickly grasp ideas, you are revealed by your birthday to be a clever and shrewd individual. As a Cancerian, you are sensitive and shy; however, your great mental potential inspires you to aim high and achieve success. Caring and sympathetic, you are supportive of those around you, usually considering your family to be the most important element in your sense of security and well-being.
As you are mentally alert, you enjoy being occupied and well informed. Although you often trust the way you feel, a tendency to be skeptical implies that you may have to learn that the wisdom of your inner voice is your best asset.
The double influence of Cancer, as both your ruler and decanate planet, indicates that you will benefit from developing your psychic powers. By learning to channel your strong emotions toward a positive goal, you can overcome bouts of frustration and uncertainty.
When positive, you are able to react to situations very spontaneously, with willpower and determination, daring others to keep up with your stream of ideas. A tendency to lose faith, becoming withdrawn and moody, may stop you in full flow, denying you all those wonderful possibilities.
In the years leading up to age twenty-nine you will be very concerned with your sensitivity, home, and family. After this point, when your progressed Sun moves into Leo, you may be drawn more into public situations that require you to be strong and confident. This continues until the age of fifty-nine, when there is another major change of emphasis in your life as your progressed Sun enters Virgo. As this brings more practical issues to prominence in your life, you are likely to become more methodical and businesslike.

Your Secret Self
With a natural talent for understanding the value of things or making money, you also possess an inner power that adds to your tenacity and determination and proves to be a dynamic influence in your overall success. This gives you the ability to overcome all obstacles no matter how difficult they may seem at the time. Sometimes you may procrastinate and feel like you just cannot get yourself going, but once you believe in a project, you work extremely hard in order to make it become a reality.
Deep within you is a very playful quality that, positively expressed, might have a very creative influence on your life and stop you from becoming too serious. However, you need space and time for yourself at regular periods in order to tune in to the more perceptive part of your character and develop your deeper insight.
Work & Vocation
Your sensitivity and caring nature may attract you to careers working with the underprivileged or to professions such as healing or social reform. With your fine mind, you could also become involved in education or use your talent for communication in writing. Areas where you can share your knowledge with others, such as research, debating, or law, may also appeal to your rational personality. If being technical is your forte, you can be drawn toward working with computers or engineering. Conversely, you may be interested in religion or metaphysics. You may possibly achieve success in government service, in catering, or in commercializing items for the home.
Famous people who share your birthday include England’s King Edward VIII (the Duke of Windsor), psychologist and writer Alfred Kinsey, Kinks musician Ray Davies, and Empress Josephine of France.
