July 5

While loyalty and patriotism marks those born on July 4th, folks born today have all the fireworks. Charismatic, energetic, and in constant motion, you have enormous imaginative potential and the energy to make your wildest dreams come true. You’re persuasive and flamboyant and occasionally opportunistic, as is evidenced by circus impresario and showman extraordinaire P.T. BARNUM who famously quipped, “There’s a sucker born every minute.” Prolific and influential French poet and author JEAN COCTEAU shares his birthday with American artist CHUCK CLOSE, who didn’t let a spinal artery collapse get in the way of his painting career. Scattered energy can be personal pitfall as is a tendency toward instability in relationships. You do your best work with proper grounding and support.
