July Zodiac Sign

People born in July are either Cancer or Leo. July birthday babies whose dates fall between July 1 and 22 are under the Cancer Zodiac sign. Those whose dates are from July 23 till the end of the month are Leo.

The leading Zodiac sign, Cancer, is a cardinal water sign ruled by the moon, the celestial body that represents comfort, self-care, and maternal energies.

Cancers are emotional, intuitive, and caring, and their symbol is represented by the crab.

The second Zodiac sign in the month of July is Leo, a fixed fire sign that is ruled by the sun, a brightly burning body that fixes the personality type into a consistent, mostly unchanging set of traits. This also perfectly represents their strong claim that they are the center of the universe.

The Leo symbol is represented by a Lion, a fiery creature whose characteristics reflect so greatly in Leos.

July Birthday Traits

What are the qualities that are associated with the people born in July? It may be quite hard to place a finger on a bunch of things because the two signs in the month of July are very different from each other.

However, similar traits have been credited to the season in which they were born.

Positive July Traits

July-borns are very lively people who know how to set the mood right at every given point in time. They are quick-witted and have a good sense of humor. These guys are incredibly passionate and well-focused in life. They are really friendly people who use their cheerful personalities to drive intelligent conversations and draw people to themselves.

They like to stick up for their friends and family, a huge sense of responsibility that they feel towards people who are dear to them.

When it comes to remembering things from years back, July-borns have their A-games on 24/7. They have a highly retentive memory and tend not to forget incidents and people that easily.

Negative July Traits

With their retentive memories, they will definitely remember the bad that was done to them ages ago. A July-born will forgive you but brace yourself for when the already closed chapter will be torn open in the future.

A typical July-born does not trust that easily. They will give you as much time as you would need to prove yourself, but this doesn’t mean you will earn their trust in the end. They get hurt easily, so it is safe to say this is a protective measure.

When you have earned their trust, however, they can trust a little too much. This is why a betrayal hit them so hard that they never seem to forget. And, oh! They are really good at keeping grudges.
