The fourth sign of the zodiac and the strongest of the three water signs, Cancer is ruled by  the Moon. This Sun Sign represents sensitivity with a powerful structure toward security at home and in  family matters. The Cancerians character is the most perplexing of the twelve zodiac signs.  Cancerians can range from being timid, shy, dull or even withdrawn, to the exact opposite(s) (brilliant, friendly & famous) and quite outgoing.  Cancerians run the gamut on human emotion.  They are fundamentally home-based, and thrive best when feeling secure.

Sensitive, loyal, protective and creative are words which best describe the Cancerians romantic relationships, while leadership, shrewd and thick skinned often describe their professional side.

Cancerian  persons tend to put up a thick-skin which may be mis-interpreted as a cold demeanor or uncompromising personality, when in fact, they are simply masking their insecure nature.  Their intimate relationships, however, will see a different characteristic of the Cancerian,.. one of sympathy and sensitivity to others, especially those  whom the Cancerian  loves.

Cancer is an energetic, loving, creative, shrewd and intuitive type.  Their ability to tune in to the nature of those they encounter, gives the Cancerian an advantage over other signs of the zodiac, as they can easily identify with others.

Cancerians tend to hold grudges against those who hurt or slight them. They have a l-o-n-g memory, and never let you forget an error!  This trait makes it difficult for others to regain the trust of the Cancerian... Honesty is a number one quality expected by those born under this sign...  If you get caught lying to a Cancerian, you might as well give it up.  Although they are more forgiving than those born under the sign of Scorpio, the Cancerian rarely forgets!

The Cancerian can be your best friend, or your worst enemy.



Cancerians are passionate, generally happy people, and quite domestic.  However emotional, if you cut back on criticism, you can help alleviate their moody and sometimes 'emotional' outbursts.



Cancerians are most compatible in positions which care for others such as nursing homes and hospitals. Because they tend to enjoy the lime-light, other possible career choices might be:  writer, musician, lecturing, Minister or theatre.  



Cancerians are domestic people who are capable of loving deeply. They rarely forget an injustice against them, and almost never let you forget it if you do! They are sensitive individuals who, once taken under their wings, will fight til the last breath to defend or protect those they love.
