Being born on the last day of the Cancer sign, you are characterized by your optimism, empathy and intuition. Your close group of friends can always count on you for a positive outlook and making the best out of an otherwise bad situation. You are very comfortable with both your emotions and the emotions of others. You can easily recall a dozen times when you seemed to sense what another person was feeling or thinking. It’s this ability that allows you to always know the right thing to say, which is greatly appreciated by those closest to you.
