Trust your hunches

Your intuition is a gift that can bring you good luck, success and happiness. You owe it to yourself to listen to it and trust it.

People born on July 4 tend to identify strongly with groups and organizations, be they their family co-workers, local community country or even humanity as a whole. The creation of shared human bonds and goals is extremely important to them, and they will often dedicate themselves to defending people’s wider interests.

Whatever path in life they choose, they will be at their happiest when they are surrounded by those who are working toward a common goal. Ironically though, for those so focused on communal identification, they are also quite private individuals and prefer to keep their own feelings to themselves; opening up to others won’t be easy for them. Despite their reserve, it’s no coincidence that these people were born on US Independence Day. Their dedication and loyalty are matched only by their courageous spirit and desire to defend and protect those less fortunate. They are also extremely intuitive, but because this gift can make them feel as if they are different they may choose to repress it or only reveal it to those who know them well.

In the years leading up to the age of eighteen they will be concerned with home, family and security; after they age of nineteen they may find that they are increasingly drawn into public positions that require strength and confidence. During these years they should guard against inflexibility and uncritical belief in their cause. After the age of forty-eight they enter a new phase which brings practical issues to prominence, and they are likely to become more analytical, observant and methodical.

If they devote themselves to a cause that is worthy of them, they have the potential to rise all the way to the top, helping others rise to the top with them. The opposite is true if they make the wrong choice, so learning to make the right choices and decisions will be their major challenge. They will, however, be able to make the right choice with ease if they work with their intuition, investing time and energy to listening to their inner voice.

On the dark side

Biased, demanding, stubborn

At your best

Principled, courageous, generous

Love Always knows best

The mild-mannered charm of people born on July 4 will often attract admirers but when in a relationship they need to watch their tendency to always know what’s best for everyone, especially as they tend to be attracted to enterprising, successful people who are determined to succeed. Once in a loving relationship, however, they can be extremely affectionate, generous, loyal, and loving.

Health Don’t neglect the gift of health

People born on this day have a tendency to neglect their own health and wellbeing for the sake of the family or the group they are working with, so it is important for them to make sure that their own personal well-being takes center stage. They would benefit greatly from scheduling regular exercise into their diary to make sure they don’t decide to give it a miss. Team sports and regular fitness classes are ideal ways for them to keep in shape, but they may also benefit from a running, swimming or cycling schedule. As far as diet is concerned, they need to increase their intake of fresh produce, in particular fruits and vegetables. Mind-body therapies that encourage them to get in touch with their intuition such as meditation, hypnotherapy and yoga would be extremely beneficial. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color purple will encourage them to focus more on their inner life.

Career Born firefighters

These people will thrive in any job that involves people and an element of risk. They might make great firefighters, paramedics, police officers or emergency care workers. They may also be drawn to sales, negotiation, promotion, law, publishing, banking, or politics. Any occupation that deals with items for the home, food or caring would also be a possibility and their love of the dramatic may lure them to the world of art and entertainment.

Destiny To devote their talents to the common good

The life path of people born on this day is to understand that some of the answers they are looking for can only be found by searching within. Once they are able to connect with their intuition, their destiny is to devote their considerable talents to the common good.
