July 2 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Although your birthday is often associated with dynamic and commanding personalities, you are also idealistic, caring, and reserved. The subinfluence of your decanate ruler, Scorpio, makes you naturally assertive, with strong and intense emotions. You frequently possess artistic talent and psychic ability, and need to find ways to express yourself and your originality.
Appearing friendly and unassuming, with a charismatic character, you often draw others to you and benefit from associations and partnerships. A natural psychologist, you want to know exactly what motivates others, and you are often easygoing, with an honest and direct approach. Although a good and loyal friend who enjoys social gatherings, you have a keen material awareness and natural business sense that are subtly concealed behind your warm smile.
It may be your strong desire to enjoy the good things in life that will motivate or inspire you. Nevertheless, an inherent dissatisfaction and a tendency to daydream or get bored easily may undermine your true potential. Guard against restlessly moving from one interest to another or trying to find yourself through other people’s dreams. By recognizing that the power of love is greater than the power of money, you become inspired and rich in heart.
After the age of twenty, when your progressed Sun moves into Leo, you are likely to become more dynamic, positive, and self-assured.
