The individual celebrating a birthday on this date is other-person oriented and feels incomplete without a loving partner to share his or her life. Even so, you will hold off on making a commitment until you’re reasonably sure that your feelings are reciprocated. Once the commitment is made, however, you expect the union to last a lifetime. A romantic idealist, you believe that the two of you will live together in a blissful state of harmony and cooperation. If this “best of all possible realities” fails to manifest, you may be hurt and inclined to blame your disappointment on your partner.
In the bedroom, you are a tender, gentle, considerate lover. Because you put your partner’s needs before your own, you do whatever it takes to accommodate your mate’s desires. Although rather shy about expressing your own needs, you somehow manage to communicate your likes and dislikes to your bed partner. More sensual and romantic than passionate, you are content to be wrapped in your lover’s arms. What you’re seeking is emotional intimacy, not wildly acrobatic sex.
You enjoy dressing up and being wined and dined in a fine restaurant with a lovely decor and pleasant atmosphere. Soft lights, romantic music, and flowers and candles on the table add to your enjoyment. But for you the real turn-on is the intimate conversation, private jokes, and sexual banter you exchange with your lover over dinner.
A curious mixture of dependence and independence, you always seem to make time for other people. You listen to them and help them find equitable solutions to their problems. You desperately want love and companionship in return, but the ingrained suspicion of your self-protective Cancer Sun makes it difficult for you to trust others as much as they trust you.
