June 20 Zodiac Birthday Signs – Those born on this date are highly intuitive, with original ideas. You are charismatic and charming, and an important part of your success is an ability to deal with people on a personal level. Having a warm heart and being friendly and sociable, you are often popular and know how to enjoy yourself and keep people entertained. This can help in your desire to be in the limelight, preferably in a leading position. You may have to beware, however, of underachieving through not disciplining yourself and scattering your energies in too many directions.
The influence of Aquarius, your decanate ruler, suggests that you want to explore new and innovative concepts. Your shrewd but restless mind gives you quick responses and reactions and can easily assess people and situations. You may have to avoid being impatient or stubborn, and you can have a tendency to not follow through with the responsibility needed to achieve your outstanding promise.
Usually ambitious, you are likely to be constantly thinking of schemes of how to make money or advance in life. Your desire for creativity often means that you have a strong need for freedom of expression. Since natural enthusiasm is one of your prime assets, the catch is that you need to genuinely believe in an idea in order to throw yourself into a project and get results.
Up to the age of thirty, your progressed Sun is in the sign of Cancer and you may be particularly centered around issues concerning emotional security, home, and family. At the age of thirty-one, when your progressed Sun moves into Leo, you will become more creative and confident. This will endow you with the assertiveness to be more adventurous and enhance your social skills. After sixty, when your progressed Sun moves into Virgo, you are likely to become more practical, discriminating, and orderly.
