July 21 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Receptive and intuitive, with an ambitious and resourceful character, you are revealed by your birthday to be a creative and astute personality. Your curiosity and understanding of what motivates others suggests that you are quick at assessing people and situations. As a Cancerian, you are sensitive, with a shrewd mind and good mental potential. Nevertheless, at times worry and skepticism imply that you may need to learn to trust your first instincts. Since you like to be mentally occupied and well informed, education or self-directed learning can help you develop your fine mind as well as your confidence.
The subinfluence of your decanate ruler, Pisces, empowers you with imagination and psychic abilities. Often autonomous, with a need to accomplish, you possess depth of thought and can develop your analytical skills. If inspired, you are usually adaptable and can cope with every situation. By developing a responsible attitude and remaining resolute, you never feel like a victim of destiny.
Your need to alternate between the conventional and the avant-garde implies that your individuality and creativity need some form of self-expression. Lack of mental stimulation, however, can cause a nervous disposition and bring on your tendency to be quarrelsome or stubborn.
Since your Sun progresses into Leo during the first year of your life, there are early opportunities in childhood to develop strength, creativity, and self-expression. Your increasing confidence is likely to continue until the age of thirty, when your focus will change to a more pragmatic and rational approach, with a growing desire for an orderly life. At the age of sixty there is another turning point as your progressed Sun enters Libra. This highlights the growing importance of relationships, your social circle, and an appreciation of beauty and harmony.

Your Secret Self
At times you have a high-spirited, childlike quality that delights in competition or creative challenges.

You may possess either analytical or technical skills, which can help you in your career.
