Your compassion will continue to grow as you embrace these qualities of water. The influence of water is not all positive however, as becoming overly submerged can result in emotional instability and moodiness.
July 17 Ruling Planet - Moon
Cancer’s planetary ruler is the moon, but because you were born in the third Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also influenced by Neptune. If the moon could be described simply as the influence of sensitivity, Neptune would be described as the influence of spirituality and imagination. As these planet’s powers combine, you were born as a romantic dreamer. Often with your head in the clouds, you live in a world of possibilities and fantasy. You take on love in a similar nature, often playing with romantic novelties. Although this brings much enjoyment, reality can sometimes fall short. In times like these, tapping into your undying optimism is key. While imagination is a great gift, you must always be aware that there are times when you would be better served focusing on reality.
