July 16 Birthday Horoscope
July 16 Zodiac Sign - Cancer
As a Cancer born on July 16th, your optimism and empathy are two of your greatest talents. You never struggle to see the bright side of things and those around you marvel at your positive outlook. In the same light, you have the ability to understand the emotions and thoughts of others intuitively, as you seem to just know what’s bothering a friend or loved one. These qualities allow you to thrive in social situations and are greatly appreciated by your friends, family, peers and co-workers.
July 16 Birthday Element - Water
Water is your paired element and you have the most fundamental connection with water of all the zodiac signs. As the element of emotion, you experience water’s unpredictable and forceful qualities in strong waves of emotion. From these waves you gain deep understanding and the ability to spot even the slightest change in the emotional tides of others. Your empathy and compassion will continue to grow as you embrace the positive qualities of water. Be aware of water’s negative qualities, as you can get lost in the depths of emotion and become moody.
July 16 Ruling Planet - Moon
The moon is the ruling planet of your sign, but because you are born in the third Decan, or part of the sign, you also experience the planetary influence of Neptune. An interesting pairing, the moon influences your emotional sensitivity, while Neptune drives your spirituality and imagination. The resulting combination makes you a dreamer and romantic at heart. You are excited by romanticism and spend much time in the realm of fantasy. While these talents can be your greatest strength, you run the risk of becoming fully engulfed in the clouds and losing sight of reality. Spend time to figure yourself out and to explore other cultures, as these practices will bring you a sense of fulfillment.
July 16 Cancer Personality
July 16 Cancers are spiritual, with an innate sense of self. Although quiet, introspective, and seemingly shy, they have a strong will. They use the power of their positive attitude to get them through tough times. They hope for good things to happen but are never surprised when the opposite occurs.
