CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

The Latin name for crab is Cancer. The Zodiacal constellation of the Crab is the most inconspicuous sign of the entire Zodiac. Cancer lies between Leo, the lion, and Gemini, the twins. It is almost impossible to see Cancer as a crab with the naked eye or even binoculars. It looks more like a faint, upside-down Y.

The sign of Cancer is known to be the sign of the World Mother and hence her natural ruler is the Moon. Cancer embodies the principle of tenacity has the sign represents the growth of the soul sustained by the nurtured physical force of life. Cancer is a most powerful sign as the pulsating force of life throbs deeply at the very heart of this sign.

Cancer is the first of the Water signs and therefore peers at life and the world through a watery emotional lense and thus possesses a highly developed emotional acuity. Cancerians are highly resourceful and have a knack at establishing a home base wherever they may wander. They zigzag through life and make their approach in a roundabout and sideways kind of way, all the while clinching the object of their prey along the way. Cancerians generally have excellent memories (unless Mercury is afflicted) and display a keen interest for matters of history and things ancient. Many a Cancerian will be found holding on to family antiques, treasures and heirlooms and hoarding many other things they deem worthy of collection.

Cancerians attract things they need rather than seeking after them actively. They generally take action when motivated by outside stimuli. They are inclined to wait until they are confronted with circumstances before they act.
Like the tides of the ocean, Cancerians are extremely sensitive to the phases of the Moon and live with the constant ebb and flow of their emotional life and respond through their emotions rather than their mind. As most Cancerians live in their mind and affections, unconsciously they seek sympathy from others. They need to come first to those they love or you will find them to be depressed and gloomy. As is the sign of Taurus, they need to learn to let go of their loved ones in order that they may find their own way in the world.

Cancerians are home-loving beings who are very fond of their creature comforts, yet at the same time they enjoy the excitement of travel and adventure. Yet it does not matter how far they roam, they always make sure that they have a home to come back to.

Cancerians are natural worry warts and they have a tendency to keep all their worries and problems inside which makes them predisposed to suffering from ulcers. Cancerians, both men and women, generally make exceptionally good cooks and enjoy the same. Their fears of not having enough food are real which makes them naturally inclined to exhibit hoarder behaviour.

Cancerians can at times exhibit reclusive tendencies. Yet for the most part they love to share their world in private relationships. An invasion of a Cancerian’s privacy will not be received well and they will retreat further into their shell to keep their world private for as long as needs be. In order to share the private world of a Cancerian you need to work hard and be prepared to be put to the test when it comes to earning his or her trust. Should this trust at any stage be betrayed, be prepared for the consequences as the perpetrator may in time be forgiven, but the deed will never be forgotten.

Most Cancerians like to live by their own rules. After all, it is their house and you can come and play, but they are happier if you play by their rules.
