June 28 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Your birthday reveals you to be idealistic yet pragmatic, an astute and highly intuitive individual with a sharp mind and a natural sense of humor. Having keen reasoning powers and being able to quickly grasp ideas and articulate them show an innate talent for language and communication. As a Cancerian, you are both affectionate and impressionable, with a need for the security of strong family ties and home comforts. Your proud, confident, and assertive front often hides a sensitive soul, and although you possess a caring nature, with strong maternal or paternal instincts, the added influence of the Moon may cause fluctuating moods. Keeping yourself constantly occupied may prove to be an antidote to your low boredom threshold. However, your strong convictions and natural ability to quickly assess people and situations, when coupled with an enterprising spirit, can ensure your success.
Being socially oriented, you often mix with people from many different walks of life and thrive on the personal touch. Nevertheless, guard against being too provocative or manipulative, as it can lose you the many benefits that come from collaborative efforts. Learning to balance cooperation with the desire to be independent and self-sufficient can bring great personal satisfaction and increase your feel-good factor.
A strong influence of the Moon in the first decanate of Cancer carries a double impact throughout your childhood and youth. This influence suggests that although in early life you were shy and sensitive, there was still a longing to be at the center of things. After the age of twenty-four, when your progressed Sun moves into Leo, you are likely to receive a much- needed boost of creativity, strength, and confidence. As your progressed Sun moves into Virgo, when you are age fifty-four, you become less dominant, more thoughtful, and analytical. This brings a growing desire for an orderly life.
