All About Your July Baby
Looking to sources from astrology and the farmer's almanac to scientific research, here are some of the characteristics and symbols attributed to July babies.
The middle of the year, and the middle of summer vacation, July is typically a time for celebrating with family. With Independence Day early in the month, the time is right for grilling, swimming, and taking advantage of the long daylight hours. And of course, you'll have that one friend who mentions how many Fridays are left until Christmas, right?
Even better news? According to studies, “babies born in July are generally more optimistic through life.”
The birthstone for July is the ruby. The red gem is said to “guarantee health, wisdom, wealth and success in love.” Not a bad deal!
July's birth flower is larkspur. While in general the bloom represents love, different colors also convey different meanings. The other flower associated with July is the water lily, a symbol of purity.
The zodiac signs for July babies are Cancer (until July 22) and Leo (July 23 forward).
- Cancer – Symbolized by the crab, they enjoy tradition and history. While they need their alone time they are loyal and dependable friends.
- Leo – Symbolized by the lion, they are natural leaders. They may come across as willful or bossy, but they are usually in the pursuit of doing right and good.
Famous July birthdays include Kevin Hart, Sophia Vergara, and JK Rowling.
