To be born under the sign of Cancer truly is a karmic blessing. As well as relating to your sensitive emotional nature, it represents a development spiritually as the water signs are strongly linked to the higher evolutionary processes within us.
Simply put, Cancer, you’re basically a selfless, caring and loving person who likes to demonstrate their love for others.
You’re also very intuitive and often exhibit an uncanny ability to go to the heart of things without any intellectual claptrap.
Another great quality of yours is adaptability. Like water, you can move and change to fit the circumstances and to accommodate the people you deal with. Although you have a very strong mind when it comes to your own desires and needs, you’re still able to compromise when you feel it supports the group as a whole.
Being a water sign you have a cooling yet invigorating aspect to your personality. In tough times people have a tendency to be drawn to your selflessness and nurturing traits as they know your open ear and warm heart will help them through their difficult times.
The fourth sign of the zodiac, under which you were destined to be born, relates to the domestic sphere of life and therefore you love to be part of a family network. It is here that you really excel and do your best. The Cancer home is very comfortable and even strangers usually feel quite at ease when invited to dinner to spend time in your company.
Many Cancers extend this caring, nurturing vibe to their professional activities as well. It comes so easily to you that it’s no wonder you’re able to work in healing and consoling professions. Your key life phrase ‘I nurture’ demonstrates this fact. When you read the segment on the best professions suited to you, you’ll see what I mean.
Your star sign is very sensitive and you tune into other people’s vibrations, moods and thinking processes effortlessly so you are able to understand others instinctively. Your perception about their character is usually spot on.
There is a down side to this, however, as you also tend to absorb the negative emotions of others in the process. If you feel this is overloading you, you need to get yourself out of the situation quickly, even for a short time to recover your clarity and peace of mind.
Cancer and its ruler the Moon reflect much of your own personality and, because the Moon regulates the emotions, you can find yourself challenged by incredibly extreme mood swings. Even though your family and friends are well aware of this it can be a little trying for all concerned at times.
As a woman, you have maternal and nurturing qualities so you’ll be absolutely well suited to the roles of homemaker and mother. Men born under Cancer also fare well as caregivers and so sometimes they exchange their roles as they do such a good job of looking after the kids as well.
Be careful not to lock yourself away in your own private lifestyle because being reclusive, enjoying your own company, can sometimes overtake your desire to connect to the world at large. Don’t deny others the wonderful qualities you have to offer.
Many Cancers are nocturnal as the Moon shines most brightly in the evening hours. You’ll feel creative and enjoy that stillness and reflective quality of the night hours.
Many Cancers take their cooking skills to a new height by starting restaurants and showing their love of the world at large through this unique skill. Music, writing and also gardening seem to be popular pastimes for Cancers. You’ll never forget a kind deed and always reciprocate tenfold. You appreciate that same caring attitude in others.
You also realise you’re more nostalgic than many other star signs and memories are important to you, keeping scrapbooks and old shoeboxes full of black and white photos as mementos of the good old times.
Cancer has a wonderfully expressive and inviting face. Because the eyes are the windows to the soul, and your eyes are large and expressive, people feel as though your heart is open enough for them and you are guileless in the way you share your thoughts and feelings.
