(23 June – 23 July)
Planetary symbol: The CrabElement: WaterType: CardinalRuler: The Moon
Cancerians have a strong nurturing instinct. The glyph for Cancer depicts a mother’sbreasts, because the first nurturing a child receives after birth is usually suckling at theirmother’s breast. The crab is also an apt symbol for this sign because, like the crab,Cancerians have a hard outer shell and a soft centre. They rarely move forwards to achievea goal, preferring to approach it sideways, as if siding up to their opportunities. Being acardinal type, they are ambitious and will initiate action to achieve their desired goals.Cancerians understand life through feelings, a characteristic of the water signs, and it canbe difficult for them to understand something they cannot feel. They are naturallyintuitive, able to sense the emotions of a group of people rapidly and adjust their responseaccordingly.Cancer is ruled by the Moon, which has a noticeable effect on Cancerians. When it is a FullMoon, they are often more energetic or restless than usual, and around the New Moon, moresluggish. They prefer the evening to the early morning, and their vivid imaginations makethem valuable writers, painters and storytellers. Many Cancerians have slow lymphaticsystems and are consequently somewhat slow physically, which heightens their imaginativetendencies.Cancerians are patient, sympathetic and protective people. They are suited to careers thatinvolve caring and compassion, such as child care, infant or primary school teaching, ormanaging a bed and breakfast or private hotel. They have a subtle sense of colour, whichsuits them to interior design and interior decorating. They can enjoy working in thehospitality industry and when grounded by financial fears and insecurities, they often seekclerical or accounting work as it is secure.Cancerians enjoy the sea, rivers and lakes, but prefer appreciating the beauty of thesethings to getting wet. Work involving boats or liquids (including alcohol) appeals to them.Natural hoarders, Cancerians collect mementos of every event or phase in their lives. Oncein a while they will gather together their photographs, books, records and CDs and wallow innostalgia. They can be quite acquisitive, and again the crab is symbolic of their nature, its
strongest parts being its claws. They are apt to want to live in the past, so a Cancerian orsomeone with strong Cancer qualities would be the person to consult for historical details if you were putting together a family tree.Cancerians often possess deep memories, especially for emotional hurts, and it is not unusualfor them to recount an incident from 10 years ago in great detail if it has upset them insome way.Home and family are important to Cancerians, and a characteristic of their homes can bethat every ledge and flat surface is crowded with books, cards, trinkets and collectibles.They love cooking, and usually prepare more than necessary.Cancerians are inclined to be emotionally possessive of their loved ones and need to curbtheir tendency to worry about family and friends. As parents, they can find it difficult tolet go of their children when they want to leave home or assert their independence. Withsmaller children, however, Cancerians excel. They are patient and doting, and because oftheir vivid imaginations, are excellent storytellers.Essentially romantic, Cancerians enjoy travel and learn languages easily by absorbing thesounds around them and committing them to memory. They are much better learning alanguage when immersed in the culture than in a school-type environment.Cancerians are often highly intuitive, particularly through their dreams at night, and keepinga dream journal can be a very rewarding process for them. With a little training, theaverage Cancerian can program their dreams to give them solutions to problems in theirdaily life. Sometimes, when life’s problems overwhelm them, Cancerians can retreat intotheir dreams and their rich fantasy life.Cancerians can be moody, especially when they feel insecure, and logic doesn’t help themfeel better. Emotional reassurance is necessary and they respond well to hugs. Being suchgood nurturers, they also respond well to a little nurturing in return. When a Cancerian feelsunappreciated, they tend to moan, nag and criticise, dampening the mood of all those aroundthem.
With their active imaginations and vivid memories, Cancerians delight in romance. Whenseparated from the one they love, they like to know they are remembered, so sending cards,letters, flowers or small gifts to a Cancerian partner goes a long way towards winning theirheart. All these gifts or letters are carefully tucked away for later review, to be savouredhundreds of times at leisure. In return, Cancerians love to send cards and letters, and willspend hours dreaming of how their partner felt when they received them.Cancerians are very nurturing and are usually gentle in their displays of affection. Fond offamily life and domestic harmony, the Cancerian enjoys a homely abode which is oftencluttered with family photos and collectibles.
Being a water sign, the Cancerian is usually in tune with their partner’s feelings, even whenthey are apart from one another. These people tend to worry about their financial security,their loved ones and the state of the world generally, so emotional turbulence in arelationship can be very debilitating for them.Owing to their romantic nature, Cancerians sometimes love their partner more intimatelywhen that person has left them or is unavailable. ‘Absence makes the heart grow fonder’aptly describes the Cancerian approach to relationships.
The sign of Cancer rules the stomach, the digestive system, the breasts and the lymphglands. A slow lymphatic system is characteristic of Cancerians.The Cancerian imagination is usually well developed, and it is important for these people torecognise that their minds can direct their imaginations towards creative things or towardsfearful events. When directed towards fearful events, Cancerians worry incessantly,stressing their already delicate stomachs and digestive systems, which can result in ulcers.
Negative Cancer
Negative Cancerians are worriers. Often crippled by fear of disastrous consequences, theyfail to seize the moment and succeed with their plans. Their vivid memories are clutteredwith past hurts, both real and imagined, preventing them from forgiving and living in thepresent. They tend to be martyrs who moan loud and long about life’s injustice. They can bequite selfish, stingy and loath to spend money.When negative, Cancerians are unable to give or receive nurturing, and they often retreatinto dreams when presented with problems. This hardening of their soft natures can be aresult of difficulties in childhood, which seem to affect Cancerian types more than any ofthe other signs. In many cases, they hold a grudge against their mother, blaming her forruining their life. Their lymphatic disposition means they retain wastes in their physicalbodies; in turn, they can experience emotional retention and an inability to forget or releasepast hurts. They are moody, often retreating into themselves without warning and provingunreachable to those around them.Being a water sign, the negative Cancerian can be an emotional and psychic sponge, drainingthose around them and casting a gloomy shadow over everything. Slovenly in habit, theyinvariably choose the path of least resistance while expecting the greatest success.Fearful of emotional and financial bankruptcy, negative Cancerians hoard all that they can,both physically and emotionally. These people are usually unsuccessful in their own business,as they worry too much. Negative Cancerians can also seem emotionally unavailable inrelationships, as they are still emotionally attached to some past partner. The Cancerian
