July 5th Horoscope

(Pluto) – MERCURY – (Pluto) – URANUS

Little Mercury tends to grow and embrace its higher role of Uranus in this planetary row. July 5th is all about personal growth, our growth as humans, and the connecting with another human being through communication and self-expression. People born at this time have a lot to say, they carry messages that are important to the society and to their own social circle, and tend to search for their tribe so they can learn, grow and manifest who they really are. Guided by the inner pack of wolves, these Cancer representatives often need to forget about their roots in order to become who they were always meant to be.

In chase for balance between their masculine and feminine sides, they will turn from their father figures to the safety and comfort of their mother's love.

Love and Emotions

Feelings don’t seem to be the greatest priority in lives of Cancer representatives born on the 5th of July, even though everything revolves around them in their life. Such a powerful intellectual position almost always gives thinkers that make rational choices and decisions based on communication, friendship, and a human, aware approach. It is possible that their relationships will lack passion or emotion, and this could lead them straight into parallel bonds if they don’t ask themselves what they truly lack before committing to another human being in a union that doesn’t satisfy them.

They need a good friend and someone to talk to, but they should pay attention to build true intimacy with the person who sees them for who they truly are. Their story of self-expression is best seen through their most intimate bonds. Once they realize that non-verbal contacts make them even more excited than those filled with nicknames and obvious communication, they could touch someone's heart in new ways and create something truly grand.


Guided by the master of all maps and travels, Jupiter, these individuals have a purpose in finding the truth that will in fact set them free. They are teachers and guiding lights for themselves and others, and were born with a task to explore, expand, and widen their horizons until their relative perspective makes them truly happy. Their goal is to manifest visions that stand buried inside their mind for a lifetime and they are to learn that it is never too late to do so.

When choosing their present, think about ways to satisfy their common sense and their practicality, but pay even more attention to their creative, childish needs that make them artists with small gadgets, jewelry, clay, or any form of artwork that helps them sparkle.

The story written in these symbols is without a doubt a story of direction one is about to take in their lifetime. It is also a signal that the personality needs to go though a deep and dark change to find their place under the stars. A lot is here to be learned, to be followed and examined, and the thumb might be there for study, but it is also there to remind us of a hitchhiker who is just trying to get from one point in space and time into the other. It is a story of demons that are to be faced in the darkness and one's ability to grow, learn and expand, young at heart and curious as they get, however old or weary.
