June 16 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Quick and down-to-earth, you are revealed by your Gemini birthday to be a shrewd, independent, and strong individual. An interesting combination of sensitive high ideals mixed with a practical desire for money and luxury indicates that you may vacillate between two extremes. On one hand, you desire an expensive and stylish home and a high lifestyle, and on the other hand, you are willing to sacrifice for your ideals. A solution to this may be to find a positive cause that also brings you financial rewards.
With the influence of Aquarius, ruler of your decanate, you are original and broad- minded, and you need freedom. Mentally sharp and receptive to new ideas, you are able to make split-second decisions and may have an interest in social reform. With a progressive view of life, you value knowledge, and travel may be one of your favorite pastimes.
At times you are extremely generous and kind with your loved ones. At other times you are likely to be rather domineering or overbearing. You may also need to avoid a tendency to be impatient or restless. If opposed, you obstinately adhere to your own principles from an innate rebelliousness rather than from real conviction.
Ideally you should be in a position where your courage and ability to think big can put you in the forefront as an initiator. Being naturally gregarious, you have an easy way with people and an excellent ability to spot opportunities. As long as you keep faith in yourself, your no-nonsense approach, original ideas, and intuition guarantee you success.
Family and security become more important in your life after the age of five, when your progressed Sun moves into Cancer. This also highlights your personal emotional needs. This continues until around the age of thirty-five, when your progressed Sun enters Leo. This will increase your confidence and strength and enable you to become more assertive and self-expressive. When you reach the age of sixty-five, your progressed Sun moves into Virgo, and you start to develop a more analytical approach by being reflective.
