As one might expect of someone born on Independence Day, these people have brave hearts and very autonomous spirits. You love a good challenge and enjoy the company of good people who are also not afraid to draw lines in the sand and fight for what's noble and honorable. As a birth number 2 suggests, working with a group only improves the results. Among like-minded, motivated folk, there's very little that could ever hold you back.
The influence of the number 2 shows in your career path as well. You want a social and idealistically supportive atmosphere at work, and you do expect a lot from coworkers. Our Crab has to be careful not to get too bossy, even if the motivation is a good one. Sometimes you get so excited that words come out before you consider the impact. That natural intensity is yet another area in which birth number 2 can be depended upon to offer greater insight and symmetry. In any case, people who share this birthday often do very well in positions like theatrical agent or promoter.
In relationships, you can be depended on to always support your friends fiercely, especially when you perceive inequity or cruelty. This does not lead to enabling, however. That's the juncture at which this Cancer believes in tough love. With mates, you require a certain level of autonomy — clingy companions need not apply.
