Personality Traits & Characteristics Of Famous People Born On July 4th

Personality
A desire to be close to family and friends exemplifies the character of those born on 4th of July. Being a water sign, they can get quite emotional. These strong feelings are the reason behind their passion and zest for life. Their gift is an uncanny intuition that they sometimes depend upon to guide themselves in making decisions. Often perceived as stubborn and headstrong, these individuals are fiercely protective to those fortunate enough to get close to them. And, although their greatest comfort is in groups, they have a conflicting need for privacy as well.

Health
Due to the importance of family and friends in their lives, it's common for people born on July 4 to sacrifice their own interest for others. They need constant reminding of their health, in order to maintain themselves at a level of satisfactory fitness. Once they do become aware of their lack of health, they can become fanatical in finding a method to maintain adequate nutrition and exercise. Their need for groups encourages them to seek out team sports. Exercise is imperative, as health can quickly affect the mood of those born on this day.

Finance
Since they're deeply concerned with home and security, individuals born on 4th of July will focus on creating a financial nest egg. They will use their need for comfort as a drive to earn plenty of money, but this need for security will always compete with the Cancerians’ habit of spending.

Career
People born on July 4 flourish in a team environment co-operating with their peers in completing a task. The innate gift of intuition leads them unerringly in the decision making process and is aided by their core ability to stick to that decision. They're also ambitious, seeking positions of power.

Relationships, Marriage & Children
Born on the 4th of July, they'll seek out a partner with a similar desire to succeed. Their nurturing personality is key in finding love and being loved. They ultimately seek a long-term relationship and marriage, keeping fidelity above all virtues. When the relationship does reach a long-term stage, they respond by doting on their love and showering them with affection. They are certainly not shy in making sexual advances but can become sulky if those advances are spurned. Home-loving, they are fond of children and as parents they make sure that they bequeath the same values upon their children which they received.
