July 16th is a date of incredible thoughts, grand emotions and love to be actively shared with the world. Frustration won’t be well accepted and tolerated at this time, for the position of those born on this date isn’t to stand in the shadows but to shine just as they are. This is the date when new things need to be created and one must stay in touch with inspiration and love, even if it is painful or disturbing for their inner waters.

July 16th Horoscope

SUN – VENUS – (Pluto) – URANUS

Excitement of love is the story of people born on July 16th and their emotions are to guide them into the state of higher consciousness. It is important for the touch of these three entities to not stay stuck in any situation or emotional spasm caused by a hurtful experience, so that their energy can flow. Their job is to manifest their inner beauty and share it with the world in exciting new ways, but this won’t be easily done if they are held back by structures that don’t support their truth to flow out.

The touch of the old with the new is emphasized on this date. Restrictions to their ego and the development of personality at a young age tend to leave a scar on their personality and their willingness to take action and create. The mission is pure and their hearts sensitive, and people born at this time know how to bring their visions to life once they get in touch with their true Self.

Love and Emotions

Feelings set up a foundation for everything a person born on July 16th does. They need love in their life, partnerships and common goals, and often choose partners only to make themselves realize how valuable they really are. Love stories in their lives usually last long and they aren’t typically prone to short-term affairs that don’t serve a much larger purpose. While some might lean towards partners that are already married or divorced with a knowledge of a family life, many will simply follow their inner need to create a child and a family with someone they have known for years.

They seek security and respect, and these are the only solid foundations for their lasting bonds. This might put their sexuality aside and stay in marriages and romances that don’t fully satisfy their physical needs. Still, to be fulfilled as they wish to and live their lives to the fullest, this is an important part of their relationships that should be nurtured and cherished through hedonism and pure physical pleasure.


The main aim of individuals born on the 16th of July is to find a tribe to belong to and a safe place to speak their mind, manifest their ideas, and express themselves with clarity and ease. Their mental state is the primal focus, and as they grow older they are tested to find ways to speak, often in front of large crowds, so they can build the ability to share the message they were born into this world with.

What They Excel In

Cancer representatives born on the 16th of July create wonder when in touch with their talents and true personality. However, they tend to hold on to secure and safe positions for too long, remaining in structures that don’t support their real inner need. They excel working with children and feel excitement when learning new languages and ways to communicate with others. In time, they build up to be entertainers, party planners or leaders in fields of art and music.

July 16th Birthday Gift

The right birthday gift for a person born on the 16th of July nurtures their child within. Be it a notebook for their drawings, a scrapbook or a ticket for a new comedy, it needs to resonate with their heart, their need to create and laugh. Don’t choose presents that are in any way dark, even if they touch their emotional world, for they need a cheerful time and something to keep them light and carefree. Instead of digging through history, turn their focus to the future, to something they can build, paint, draw or make with their hands.

Positive Traits for July 16th Born

Inspired, creative and loving, they are fun and easygoing when in touch with their emotional core. Expressive, eloquent and with a shining personality, their mission in this world is to spread the love they carry in their heart.

Negative Traits for July 16th Born

"A Woman and Two Men Castaways on a Small Island of the South Seas"

Groups form a large part of the symbolism seen here, as if two people weren’t enough to support the world of those born on this date. Not only is the impact of the surrounding society strong, but it also shows closed circles and groups defined by a shared destiny, by their own choosing or by painful, negative circumstances that make them castaways or outsiders. In cases in which their mental power is properly nurtured, these individuals find their tribe with ease, but if this isn’t the case, they typically seek support in large groups of people that share a problem of some kind.
