July 4th is the date of liberation, of independence, and regardless of the national holiday in the US, it carries a strong energy of setting free from shackles and chains of any kind, as well as anything that holds us back. It is a place in our calendar where we are no longer limited and where the vast Universe begins, but also a place where responsibility needs to be taken for all our shadows to understand what truly goes on in our open minds.
Saturn and Uranus combined always tell the story of the spot where the visible boundaries meet the invisible ones, where matter becomes a wave of light, and where our skin touches the air surrounding it. People born on July 4th have the important task to see the difference between things that must be done and everything that doesn’t even have to be considered. Their task is to create the foundation for the innovative solutions that come naturally into their world, as if they are bound to make an airport for the most important landing of innovations into the real world. They are to make themselves able to ground ideas that stress them out until they are manifested and useful to other people.
It is the conflict with the person in front of them, typically some sort of authority or their father early in life, that gives them a sense of Self and helps them find their core. They are to learn that two sides to any problem only push us to find middle grounds and solutions that other people might not be able to see. These solutions will usually be found in the realms of the heart and warm and cozy interpersonal understanding rather than conflict.

Love and Emotions

Their hearts can sometimes be closed for years until they reach the point of personal freedom that allows them to truly open for the person standing in front of them. They might enter their first serious relationship early on, or start dating late, but whatever the case, their love life is a matter of timing and they will feel the pressure of time and responsibility every step of the way, until they set free in their own inner world.
It is important that they don’t choose a partner based on their biological clock or the expectations of their surroundings and their family.
