Everything You Need to Know About Cancer

Cancer rules the home, family, and roots. As a water sign, Cancer is all about emotions and feelings.

If you were born under the sign of Cancer, you might appear shy in a group setting. You’re often described as sweet, kind, and nurturing. Cancer is the mother of the zodiac, ruled by the Moon. Your sensitivity makes you cautious when meeting new people because their energy can profoundly affect you. You run the risk of taking on their depressive or negative feelings, finding it difficult to differentiate their feelings from yours.

You are in tune with the Moon’s phases; as the Moon’s phases change, so does your mood. Full moons, in particular, are very emotional for Cancers. Cancer is a feminine, water, cardinal sign, so you are receptive, emotional, and goal-oriented. Security is critical to you and is at the top of the list when choosing a partner. You don’t mind playing second fiddle to the right person offering security. Once you latch on, you rarely let go.

Home is where your heart thrives. Your sacred space is welcoming, comfortable, and most likely filled with the aromas of home cooking. People open up to you because they feel safe in your presence.

Symbol for Cancer

Remember that the crab represents Cancer, so you will likely skirt around complex subjects and situations. At the first sign of trouble, you retreat defensively into your cozy home, where you feel protected.

The symbol for Cancer is the crab. And just like the crab, when the Cancerian grows, she sheds her shell, maturing physically and spiritually. She becomes a whole new person whenever she breaks through her old shell. Cancerians evolve as they get older. The crab is at its most vulnerable while waiting for its new shell to harden and the transformation to complete. This is why Cancerians disappear on occasion. They retreat into solitude, where they feel safe and can ready themselves to rejoin society.

It may take a minute to get through her hard exterior, but once Cancer allows you in, you will be there for the long haul. They see, feel you, and understand your pain like no other.

The flowers symbolizing Cancer are the Water Lillie for Beauty from humble beginnings, joining that which was separate. And the magnolia for endurance and perseverance.
