(June 22nd-July 22nd)
This is a cardinal-water sign, ruled by the Moon.
Hard Shell Exterior-Emotionally Sensitive Interior.
Those born under the sign of Cancer are noted for their extreme sensitiveness, both physical and emotional. They are commonly moody, and at the same time, due to their cardinal quality, their moods can vary rapidly. This is caused by usually reflecting each outside influence with which they come into contact. This is particularly true of Cancer rising; the Sun in Cancer has a more steadying effect.
The unevolved Cancer type is emotional and sentimental, while its sensitiveness renders it extremely timid and even helpless. There may be morbidity and sensationalism. They are very defensive, protective and at times quite unforgiving – unable to forget even a minor confrontation.
The advanced type shows the same sensitiveness, but has control of its feelings and, while retaining deep and ready sympathies. It is more judicious and discriminating while expressing them.
The imagination is vivid and Cancer natives enter easily into other people’s feelings and thoughts. They can sense “atmospheres” readily. There is a sly sense of humor, dry and kindly.
In unevolved Cancer types there is a danger of moral weakness, due to the ease of which impressions of all sorts that are absorbed. Cancer is, however, to a certain extent paradoxical. It is the sign of the “Eternal Feminine”, and just as women are in one aspect weak, on the other hand they can be courageous and are able to endure pain and suffering. This can be more enduring than a positive male could not undergo. Cancerians may show much tenacity and passive bravery, especially when the maternal or protective side of the nature becomes aroused. They have the greatest sticking power of the signs, and once they have taken up a position or idea they support it with a persistence which is not found in more objective signs.
They are usually good business people, being shrewd, thrifty, prudent, and careful. They proceed cautiously and often almost imperceptibly, without much noise or self-advertisement, except so far as business may need.
The domestic side is usually strong; they are home loving and devoted to their families. Often there is a clannishness aspect to them, manifesting in prejudice against strangers. They have a tendency to make their family the all of their existence. The love of the past and the reminiscing of old things is strong. The memory is retentive, and thoughts readily go back to re-experience the past. They rely on memories in which they often live, while regarding the future with anxiety and misgiving.
Crabs Walk Sideways at Times
Just like a crab, Cancerians are often known to walk sideways. Very rarely do they take the direct approach to what they want. By using that Claw eventually they get and cling to what they are after. Cancerians are better at their actions then their words. When asked for assistance, their first response might be a no, but usually in the end, they always come through. They are often known to be hard on the outside, but soft on the inside. The hard shell they show to the world is only there to protect themselves from being hurt.
Cancer is also the sign of home and family life. They seek out relationships and are happiest when with those they love because it gives them a sense of security.
Cancerians almost to the point of being psychic are very intuitive, . They are able to spot even the smallest change in someones behavior, so it is hard to deceive them. They are very insightful and have good memory. This combination of skills in addition to their excellent observation ability makes them very aware of ulterior motives from others.
