Aries: Courageous, determined, confident, enthusiastic, optimistic, honest, passionate, leader, individualistic, competitive, organized, energetic, multitasker

June 21 – July 22
Cancer: Tenacious, highly imaginative, loyal, emotional, persuasive, intuitive, sentimental, sympathetic, empathetic
The Cancer sign as an office supply item would have to be an office chair. Your favorite chair’s ability to support your back and body throughout the workday is emblematic of a Cancer’s attachment to the people close to them, and their ability to empathize with other’s discomfort and hardship. Your chair’s trusty lumbar support, head rest, and ergonomic design are as reliable and enduring as your office’s Cancer signs.
July 23 – August 22
Leo: Creative, passionate, generous, warm-hearted, cheerful, humorous, natural born leaders, self-confident, loyal, charming
