July 4 zodiac, Cancer

People born on July 4 are as changeable as the Moon and we all know how quickly Moon phases change. They are also very sensitive and imaginative. Just like a true Cancer, they possess an innate need for security that once fulfilled they become the most protective and careful being for the people around them. They enjoy staying at home and the chance to peep in the lives of others. They dislike being mocked and entering into conflicts. Those born under this sign like to spend time in familiar company if possible somewhere around water.

Positive traits: These people seem to be alluring and fascinating to everyone and appearance isn’t all. Under their soft touch and sensible act lies an excellent leader with great organizational skills. Cancer people usually have a great memory as they are great listeners. They become very protective once their own security and protection needs have been met and taken care of. Those born under this sign are also genuinely curious and can’t wait to find out everything about the people they meet.

Negative traits: These natives need to stop being so devious and contradictory and to temper their combative nature at times. They are too reluctant to transformation and this sometimes leaves them with a lot of issues to deal with. They find it hard to excuse people but they don’t necessarily hold grudges. They are foolish idealists at times and this prevents them from real evolution.

David Wayne saves Stephen Boyd’s life- on Stephen’s Birthday! “The Big Gamble”, July 1961

Stephen Boyd was forever grateful to co-star David Wayne in the summer of 1961 while filming “The Big Gamble” on the Ardeche River in southern France.  This 1961 “Motion Picture” magazine article below tells the dramatic story of Stephen’s very close brush with death. Thank goodness David Wayne was a good swimmer! Stephen also told the story himself in late 1961 while guest starring on the “What’s My Line?” TV show.
