July babies’ horoscope sign in Cancer or Leo.
Cancer is a Water Sign. Water signs are sensitive and highly intuitive, making them full of emotion and in tune with their feelings. They make loving partners and are truly artistic and compassionate. It’s no surprise Cancerians are true to their elemental signs in that they are loving and kind. In return they command your undivided attention but don’t be fooled, they are ruled by the Moon and connected to moon phases, meaning they can get ‘crabby’ at times. Famous kind and caring Cancerians include Princess Diana and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai.
Leo is a Fire sign. Fire signs are generally fiery with a daring and creative edge. Leos are typically confident born leaders and are comfortable being the centre of attention. Always full of life, Leo likes to have what they want, when they want it, meaning they don’t easily follow rules. Fiery Leo is ruled by the Sun, the literal giver of life that never goes into retrograde. Famous Leos that ‘take charge’ include Madonna, Barack Obama and Kylie Jenner.
