The transition from the sign of Cancer to Leo is in touch with beliefs and convictions that are supposed to sync intimacy with passion, and family circumstances with one's true character. Those born on July 23rd are bighearted and usually optimistic, but they may feel inadequate if they weren’t supported in their primal home. This could lead to negative beliefs that make them vulnerable and unable to focus, chasing off negative situations with humor and hiding from the real world behind their pink glasses.
A large giving heart is the first thing we see when we look at this planetary row. Individuals born on the 23rd of July are open for new experiences, giving, and ready to interact with other people guided by their higher beliefs and their moral compass. However, the Moon and Jupiter together, especially when colored by the presence of Uranus, speak of one's distance from home, a stressful distance from their own Soul and the inability to find a place to belong to. Although they tend to have many friends, constantly wearing a smile on their face, they also tend to get lonely and need enough time spent in rest and solitude to metabolize their grand emotions and recognize their truth.
The initiative and the need to move forwards might push them out of balance and keep them chasing dreams while never stopping to feel and enjoy the moment. It is important to find just the right amount of action for the feelings they carry within, with their feminine side as nurtured and fed as the masculine one so they can feel at ease. Observing the relationship between their parents, they can see their own imbalance within and see which side of their own personality needs their attention and healing.

There is certainly something revolutionary and energetic in these symbols. Notice that one of them is the power of the passive feminine, there to support the stories of the past and efforts of men who once did something grand. The other speaks of one man himself, ready to take action and do what the feminine will talk about later on. We can see the inner struggle that individuals born on this date might have, for they tend to either take too much action and focus on their own ambition, or they get lost in history, in values of their ancestors and the passive flow that doesn’t really allow growth when held on to without balance.
When speaking about the purpose of life individuals born on July 23rd share, we must recognize the strong impact of Jupiter on their personality. They are to find the right direction to move in, something that inspires them and teaches them how life can be viewed from many positions and seen as beautiful and supportive. As they find self-support, they will also empower their mind with something to share with other people and become teachers, healers, and those who speak to the hearts of others. They are to learn, expand, change perspective, and teach others how to do the same.
Love and Emotions
Every love in lives of individuals born on the 23rd of July is grand. They won’t settle for anything halfway, anything that isn’t fulfilling and purposeful as they wish their entire life to be. They need someone who will learn and grow with them, sharing their ideals, convictions and their moral imperatives, and move in a similar pace to their own. There is nothing stagnant in their primal position, even though they might sometimes seem as if they were standing in one place for a long time.
The problem that comes to focus in their love life is the ideal they strive for, and the demands it might set on their partner and those they care for. They expect nothing less than what is complete and could fail to see that everyone has the right to make mistakes along the way. Love should be taken as realistically as possible if they are to find the ideal they seek. When they find their grounding, satisfied in their own body and their circumstances, their projections into the future become clearer and turn to planning instead of dreams impossible to catch.
What They Excel In
A person born on July 23rd excels in pathfinding, traveling, law and teaching. They are preachers and teachers, those who are born understanding justice and there to give knowledge and help others expand and grow. Their path always brings the challenge of giving unsolicited advice and they must find the patience needed to listen to the need of other people instead of pushing solutions and resolutions down their throats. Large masses will follow their lead once they stop dealing with others and start their inner process of growth above restrictions.

It is also said to help balance out the level of white to red blood cells.
July 23rd Birthday Gift
The perfect birthday gift for anyone born on July 23rd is an airplane ticket or a trip voucher that will take them to a new destination and away from home. Even when their Sun is still in Cancer, they see home as a flexible term, turning to the state in their heart for intimate feelings they need, not so much their kitchen and their sofa. Their experience and learning processes should be synchronized with their beliefs and their current interests, so if you decide to by a book or enroll them in a course, make it useful for the strivings in life they nurture right now.
