People born on June 29 are born under the fourth sun sign of the Zodiac, Cancer. They are ruled by Moon. Symbolized by a ‘crab’, individuals born on this date are prone to protecting their inner feelings with a protective shell. Once in their shell, it can take time and patient cajoling to lull them into coming out again. They are sensitive souls, vulnerable to swift mood changes, which can confound their closest friends. The thought of home and family can soothe their inner turmoil. Although noble and protective of their family, these individuals can be vindictive, and use emotional manipulation to get their way.

Personality Traits & Characteristics of Famous People Born on June 29

Personality
Individuals born on this day are ruled by their emotions; reacting strongly and passionately in emotional situations. They have feelings that run incredibly deep. While moody and sensitive, the flip-side to their character is a strong empathetic and compassionate nature. When not sulking, these individuals are friendly and optimistic, ready to confront tough situations with a smile. Their singular trait, regarded as both a virtue and as a vice, is their strong will. It is often seen as stubbornness. Once decided, it is next to impossible to change their mind.

Health
People born on June 29 treat food just as they treat life—eating heartily and enjoying every mouthful. If left unchecked, this can lead to weight-gain problems that may persist throughout their life. It is advisable for these individuals to be on healthy diets and follow an exercise regimen, to keep those extra pounds off. But any criticism about their weight and shape is likely to push them into their shell and they will deny the whole problem. The moody nature doesn't help either, as they reach for a bar of chocolate to relieve their stress. Constant emotional stress can lead to other problems, like ulcers and muscle tension.

Finance
A person born on this date enjoys comfort and the finer things in life. They will use their natural intuition and ambition to earn riches, but not for themselves. Instead, their deepest desire is to invest any money they earn into their home, bringing security to their family.

Career
These individuals are instinctively drawn to creative career options. But, the conflict lies in the fact that more often than not, creative persuasions do not bring in financial security and these people live for emotional and financial security. They end up choosing money over creative satisfaction, as they cannot survive without stability in their life. They may still use their empathy to enter a social career where they can help and nurture others. Such people follow caring careers, becoming medical professionals and social workers.

Relationships, Marriage & Children
Individuals born on the 29 of June have great reservoirs of love for their partner. They also have a need to be loved, feeling truly complete when they're fully understood and cherished. They are romantic and nurturing to the point of smothering someone, and their fluid-like romantic emotions can quickly turn from affection to insecurity, in the space of a heartbeat. It can certainly be hard work loving such an individual but the reward is passionate love, which melts the heart. They are domestic, loving souls with a love for large families. Their children are the center of their life.
