A date such as July 21st offers many answers about our true inner needs, and individuals born at this time tend to be in a constant process of self-discovery that won’t let them rest. They are to comprehend and respect their own world of needs, desires, and attitudes, without interference from other people, including their family, partner and offspring.

July 21st Horoscope

MOON – SUN – (Pluto) – URANUS

The Moon and the Sun together in one row always speak of parents leaving a mark on one's entire lifetime, and Uranus here puts focus on their differences and troubles. Even though a person born on July 21st might come from an extremely functional and loving family, they will see themselves as a product of too many oppositions, and have hardship connecting the masculine with the feminine, facing a problem of finding a healthy link between their feelings and their rational choices. They are to grow, evolve, and develop in freedom of expression, so they can cope with the inner struggle putting limitations on their actions.

The Sun and Pluto in the second planetary row tell the tale of deep change in the way these individuals see themselves. It will guide them through darkness and the change of position, professional direction, and status, only for them to learn that they are to get in touch with their joyful inner child if they want to find happiness.

Love and Emotions

With relationships of opposing people being their primal need, their romantic involvements will tell the tale of differences that seem impossible to overcome. Although this can be stressful and lead to difficult breakups and endings, it is a path that will show them just how much they are able to love another person, seeing them with all their flaws and weaknesses. As they connect on a higher plane, able to communicate about everything that stands between them and their partner, they become wonderful friends to those they care for and offer a healthy, freeing, accepting relationship.

Their partners could get too different from their system, hard to accept by their friends and family, and often eccentric or seemingly impossible to connect with in some ways. The trick to keep these bonds warm and supportive is to understand the intimate blend of the two, never letting any interference from others into the union and holding on solely to the heart. We are all born individualistic and different, and to connect, respect needs to be profound and entirely true.


It is up to those born on July 21st to discover who they really are and how their true personality is the only light in any darkness they stumble across in life. Their goal is to become centered, stable, standing on their own identity and shining on everyone around them with this inner light, giving respect and an active support through their own need to follow their heart's beat. When they find themselves, they get in touch with the energy to proactively change their world and make it truly satisfying.

What They Excel In

With the ability to see the complex individuality of everyone they meet, they are great profilers and matchmakers, understanding the deeper need of each person than the image they wish to show.

July 21st Birthday Gift

Their world is a world of different choices and colors, and they will enjoy mostly anything for as long as it is coming from the heart. Able to understand the intent behind the deed, it is always good to choose something cozy, warm and human. Prepare a nice dinner, take them to a movie, and include the element of surprise in any of your choices. Instead of choosing something naïve, childish or funny, go with a gift that is true and in touch with your own feelings.

Positive Traits for July 21st Born

Connecting, warm and supportive, this is a good friend one can depend on for understanding and support when others seem to fail. Their shining personality enriches the world.

Negative Traits for July 21st Born

Torn inside, unable to connect their desires with their actions, their feelings with their rational choices, and themselves with other people. They can get distant, even lost when relating to others, stressed by the amount of energy that gets taken from them without their consent.

Healing Crystal

The right stone for those born on July 21st is ocean jasper. It will help them deal with stress and any separation issues and anxieties, helping them know themselves a little better and leading them towards the center of their true personality. This stone will elevate their spirit, releasing them of negative emotions that keep them in a loop they cannot get out of. It embodies joy, happiness and makes one feel better about life, preparing them to find oneness they seek even in the most difficult of relationships.

Sabian Symbol

The Sabian symbol for Cancer representatives born on July 21st in two years preceding a leap year:

"An Indian Girl Introduces her White Lover to her Assembled Tribe"

The Sabian symbol for Cancer representatives born on July 21st in a leap year and a year following it:

"A Greek Muse Weighing Newborn Twins in Golden Scales"

A fine balance of oppositions is at work here, and both symbols seem to show how wonderful and loving the experience of connecting two extremes can be. Everyone born on this date have the need to prove that the world can reside in oneness, be it conscious or unconscious, and they will slowly move towards realizations that allow them to see the equality of all humans and the warmth needed to connect the seemingly unconnectable. On the downside, we can anticipate a problem and too many comparations here that don’t allow progress and leave one stuck somewhere in the middle, until equality is found through change of perspective.
