Many types and techniques were used during human history for looking into the past and future, and particularly for prophesying fate. So, the prophecy, in its original form, is as old as a man himself -in every part of the globe people used some technique for looking into people’s fate. Ancient civilisations, such as the Egyptian, Indian and Greek, know the prophecies. In ancient Rome, the solemn prophecy of the priesthood was recognised and abundantly used in the high and royal society.
Despite the ban that was caused by the religious norms people from the Orient also dealt with astrology.
The list is long, and we still couldn’t mention all countries and cultures that were involved in astrology in some way.
We used it today, in the modern times, and we use it abundantly. And all analysis starts from one point -birthdate and ruling Zodiac sign. Today we are looking into July 4 and Cancer.
Personality and Character
The people born on July 4 are different from the others since the day they were born and are usually the most advanced people inside their social group. That group can be a family, regional, political, economic or workgroup, they are just blessed with so many specific traits that they have to be noticed. But does that attentions suits these people who are born on July 4, the answer is no. No matter where they come from, these people never forget and do not neglect their roots -and this aspect of their character is very important in their maturity and subsequent personal relations-
People born July 4 are not happy if they only work for personal goals, of they are satisfying their own need – those who belong to this day want to mark greater goals with their contribution. These people can work alone, but they do not want to be alone. Characteristic of these people may be that they are very loyal to the social group they belong to. At some point in later life, they will either be asked to become leaders of this social group or will remain a faithful member, and this other is most suitable for them. In both cases, these individuals show a tendency to highlight the environment from which they come from, even when they travel around the world.
These people should preserve their psyche because they are inclined to care for others, to be protective and emotional towards others, and they inner being could suffer.
As all Cancers, those who belong to the July 4 are connected to their social groups, primarily families, and family gatherings are very important for these people. They are focused on making things better for their societies, countries; they want to promote and improve their group, no matter how small or significant; or to offer constructive criticism on what things needs to be improved.
At first glance, these people seem much less demanding and complicated than they are, but this is not a bad thing we might add. And the reason behind is in the fact that they often ignore or suppress emotional contradictions they believe impede their effective functioning in the world.
Since those who are born on July 4 have a clear mind, a good reason for dealing with emotions (unlike so many other Cancer sign people), they can be excellent and reliable partners. There is something untouchable in those who are born on July 4 that mainly attracts people; and if they decide to give heart to someone, that love is never superficial, but profound, as everything in their lives.
But, if you expect from these people to open their soul easily and acknowledge feelings immediately at the first meeting, you are mistaken. Before these people fall in love with someone, there are many uncertain and tightened situations that can be intimidating for some. Those who are born on July 4 never trust the strangers, and there are some secret things they do not trust their best friends either. It takes a lot of time and patience to get to know this different and sensitive being that belongs to the July 4.
Sometimes, in love, they are dominant so that after a tear of sorrow and uncertainty, they completely change their mood and behavior.
When those who are born on July 4 love and become aware of this fact, their shyness will disappear in a second and turn into a persistent, serious and determined partner who does not accept the word ‘no’.
Purpose and Career
When we speak about the business related issues, those who are born on July 4 are strong persons who have high self-control; never fear anything, and are quite capable of leading their business without the help of other sources. And this is not the ability of other Cancer sign people, we might add, but at the beginning of this article, we have said that these people are different from their environment, and they are, indeed.
Those who are born on July 4 are an intellectual people, well-read; they are intuitive and outstanding fans of spiritual and mystical. These people never get tired of digging and exploring these areas in life, and this is something that is always a part of their interest, on top of that they love philosophy and history.
What also separates their work life from others is that those who are born on July 4 will several times experience a failure in the things that they tried to do – this is not something that discourages them in any way.
The fact that they have not managed to get less can prove that they deserve more -the primary task is to get to know what they want and continue to do it.
It is also said that these people will probably have many strange experiences in life, in many foreign places in the world – some of them will shift their personality so much, and they will use this experience to make a difference in the world.

These people have their own and often unusual ways to access things in life, and this is what makes them, at times misunderstood.
