The Sign of cancer is represented by the Crab. The 4th house in the zodiac, when the sun enters cancer on the 21st June until July 22nd, representing the home and family and mother in particular 

They are a water sign so can be super emotional or know how to tap into their emotional, feminine side. 

Cancerians are highly intuitive and have a great inner  knowing. Represented by the planet of the moon, it’s no wonder this will have a strong influence and they can appear moody or crabby! 

They wear their heart on their sleeve , are not afraid to show their emotions and can be sentimental. Most are hoarders, as they try and hold on to past happy memories, family ties especially from their mothers. While being sensitive they are also  insecure and so holding on to things gives them. Sense of security. 

They can retreat back into their shells and are most happy in their own familiar surroundings with their loved ones. Where they feel safe. Too many people in their lives or over socialising can cause them to have anxiety, and overwhelm them so they prefer small groups of those they can love nurture and trust. 

They make fantastic carers and will nurture love and support those they care about. Extremely loyal they expect the same back. Stubborn, though they will hold on to hurt for a long time unless they learn how to release that. 

Difficult to connect with at first, they may hide under their shell until they feel safe to be more open. Once they do they will expect to have and will be a friend or partner for life. They will do whatever it takes to help those they love feel secure but can sometimes leave their partners feeling controlled. Fantastic at empathising with others, they can let their feelings over consume them. They’re over bearing control is usually done from a place of love and is heartfelt. 

They will go to extreme length s to protect their family and there homes, their home really is the heart of them and there is always an open door welcoming people into their comfortable pads

.

They have a natural  intuitive streak, make great psychics, and follow what their feelings say. They can lack rational sense because of this, but often make the right choice. They dislike fake, lies and untrustworthy people or situations. 

They are super generous and fair but do expect this returned and will make you know if they don’t feel a situation is fair. 

They  can be Moody, as we said, highly emotional, their moon can swing all different ways. The moons influence only adds to the complexity of their emotions. They can sulk and hide away until they are sure it’s calm again to come out. They can have a temper that matches their abundance of love. 

Once let down, you will know it. Cancer take years  to heal, unless they have learnt other wise. They can have a vindictive side to them especially when they don’t get their way. Manipulative and bitter is not their best traits. T
