July 1

Deep and complex, you don’t suffer fools easily. Those born on this first day of July are not only intriguing and complicated individuals but have a strong empathetic streak. As such, you have no taste for inequality or injustice and will fight those forces at every turn. French novelist GEORGE SAND wasn’t interested in conforming to the feminine norms of the day; she scandalously smoked cigarettes, wore men’s clothes, and tended a prolific writing career. DEBBIE HARRY was another female iconoclast who broke down barriers for women in the punk-rock boy’s club. DIANA SPENCER famously bumped up against the constraints of her role as a modern-day princess but ultimately will be remembered for her great empathy for those far less fortunate.
