Those born between June 21 and July 22 are born under Cancer, the fourth sign of the Zodiac. Famous Cancers include Elon Musk, Princess Diana, and Tom Hanks. Being a Cancer, a water sign, this time of year is perfect, especially because it’s hot and water activities can be a fun way to cool down. If you’re not a Cancer or water activities just simply aren’t your thing, here are some dry activities for you to enjoy this weekend.
