July 8 zodiac sign horoscope

Personality traits of persons born on July 8

The powerful influence of Cancer coupled with its governance of the Moon, their ruling planet, determines the characteristic traits of individuals born on this date. On top of that, the actual date on which these people are born, which by numerological meaning is ruled by Saturn, plays a symbolic role. 

Though the union of both astrological and numerological interpretations brings a general view of a person’s traits, their uniqueness is individually specified by other planetary positions that may have an equal or more powerful influence on someone’s personality and experiences. 

Combining the sun sign and the ruling planet of July 8 specifies this person’s personality in its uniqueness from other Cancer individuals.

Saturn is the planet of authority, discipline, structure, and form. Therefore, its influence on these already assertive people shows in their reliability and resourcefulness, resulting in great adaptability and self-care.

The influence of Saturn enhances the sense of responsibility for a person’s integrity and power, which is why these individuals have a sharpened intuition that stands out from other Cancer individuals who are known to be receptive and sensitive. They are more disciplined about using this intelligence in positive ways and not be tempted to misuse it by manipulating or playing with other people’s feelings. 

Reading nonverbal cues is easy for them, and they pick up on the emotions, feelings, and intentions of others well. From their kind and warm heart, they can respond to those signals lovingly and will provide plenty of care and nourishment to those in need. 

Their emotional intelligence is powerful, which can be both a gift and a burden to them. On the one hand, it helps them be highly empathic and understanding, which is why their loved ones and a close circle will likely turn to them for support and comfort. Yet having such levels of awareness on what others feel and perceive can feel like a big responsibility and makes them easily susceptible to being dragged into the movement of energy and losing control of themselves.

Another person’s judgment or discomfort can be considered an insult and trigger insecurity in July 8 individuals. And when there is a lack of willfulness in another to receive their help for what it is, they can feel inadequate or rejected. 

Feeling what a person needs and giving it before or without them asking can cause them to become overbearing and dominant when their intention is actually to be helpful and kind. 

This is why they need to have time by themselves and work through the emotions that go through them to let them know what step is most appropriate, instead of allowing their feelings to overwhelm or overbear the others. When they give themselves time and rest, the integration that comes with it prevents them from becoming smothering.

Not being understood for this depth of emotional awareness can bring a sense of loneliness or misjudgment. That is why it is important essential to protect their inner self. They may unpredictably express their lack of feeling understood or being misinterpreted with solid defense and temper. They have a tough outer shell that only shows in situations that lack compassion, care, and intimacy. 

Feeling at home, secured, and understood is what they need the most in life, and they are the best at creating it because of that. 

How love is experienced by persons born on July 8

Cancer people most likely approach their love life responsibly and intuitively. The influence of Saturn on their date of the month determines them as devoted partners who will communicate and relate maturely. They are serious about all the commitments they make in life and thus romantically. 

As individuals, they are usually quite serene and introspective while needing an outlet for their inner richness and creativity. To be fully allowed in this way, a tolerant person and giving of space and freedom while caring and supportive would suit these Cancer people best.

Health of persons born on July 8

Due to the external factors that influence a person’s wellbeing and the uniqueness of their build, it is essential to prevent specific ailments by understanding the unique system of their physique. A proper diet, lifestyle, and self-care routine can lower the risk and susceptibility for many diseases. And for these individuals, it is extra important to find love and care for themselves by taking their well-being into account. 

Despite the influence of Saturn that makes them more responsible and regulated, they are still ruled by the Moon. Many emotions go through them, and with the changeability of the Moon’s phases, they are naturally more susceptible to experiencing ups and downs, both physically, emotionally, and mentally. 

For people born on this day, the cause of most problems is often under too much pressure from either their perfectionism or the expectations and responsibilities of the world around them. 

Toothache, blood pressure, headaches, and liver problems are issues that arise first and signal an overdose of stress or a lack of time and space to recharge and cleanse oneself. 

The influence of Saturn brings hardening, crystallization, obstruction, malignancy, atrophy, or under-activity of specific organs to the surface.
