Cancer Horoscope- The Crab
June 22nd To July 23rd
The horoscope Cancer is the Fourth Sign of the zodiac and is symbolized by the crab, a creature with a hard shell that protects a soft interior. In Greek Mythology when Hercules was fighting the nine headed monster Hydra, Hera sent a little crab to attack Hercules. When the little crab bit Hercules toes he crushed it. Hera paid tribute to the little crab’s bravery by placing him up in the sky giving him immortality.
Cancer is the first of the Water Signs making them emotional, sensitive and giving them intuitive and psychic powers. Cancer is also one of the Cardinal Signs which means they take the initiative and never wait around for someone else to start things up. This sign is ruled by the Fourth House, which is the House of Home and Family. This House describes our parental home and what influenced us growing up and describes how we relate to our family. The relationship to the Father is found in this House.
Cancer Traits and Cancer Personality
The Moon rules Cancer and it symbolizes our feelings, emotions, dreams, subconscious, our inner selves, our moods and even our sexuality; how we handle relationships and our emotional responses to given situations. It gives us our sensitivity, making our family and home of primary importance. The Moon reflects our Sun’s inner light projecting to the world our personality, and also symbolizes our domestic environment, babies, small children, our mother and other important women in our lives. Feelings are what motivates Cancers and any situation that overwhelms them they will retreat into their protective shells.
People born under this sign are called Moon Children because the many changes of the Moon affect these people. Their moodiness is well known even if they’re a bit hard to understand. One time they will be the life of the party, laughing and joking around and no one loves a practical joke more than a Cancer.
Then they can go completely south with their melancholy and depression. If they bite your head off for asking for walking in front of them you’ll know they’re going through their crabby stage. Fortunately these moods don’t last long.
They love to collect things, especially historical or antique mementos, and even after collecting so much stuff they could open their own second hand shop, they will outright refuse to part with any of it. They are just too sentimental over anything that belongs to them.
Cancers are compassionate and caring people whose deepest need is a stable and harmonious home. To them it is a respite from the harsh world. While they are romantic they can also be very insecure causing them to be jealous and possessive. Like Aquarians, Cancers need time for solitude and need their time to be alone. They love their homes and Cancer women are the most maternal women of the zodiac. With their sensuality heightened, Cancer men can be prone to having affairs but yet remain steadfastly loyal to their spouses. Both sexes are very unselfish of giving their love. Like Taureans, Cancers need relationships that are committed and well defined. They are very family oriented and are close with family members, especially their mothers. They love children and make wonderful parents.
They also make very loyal friends as well. Once a Cancer decides to love you, they will not let you go. It is almost impossible to lose the friendship of a Cancer.
They are great organizers, have an innate sense of value and are dependable. With their imaginations in over drive they have an affinity towards anything artistic and literary. You would think drama was their middle name the way they always seem to have it in their lives. They are usually great money managers but must be careful not to get swayed by the moment in financial matters.

Cancer Birthstone / July Birthstone
Cancer Sun folks will enjoy domestic activities, home life, and family are major priorities in their lives. They identify with those they love, and anyone loved by a Cancer Sun will know that they will always be there for them. These are very complex folks, with a great deal of fear for emotional and mental instability. A Cancer Sun will most often use their Moon or rising sign to express themselves, as they tend to put a protective wall around how they really think and feel. This is a self-defense mechanism, as the person with Sun in Cancer feels so much that they have an instinctive need to protect themselves from hurt.
Once a Cancer Sun gets a project going, just move out of the way. Not only are they great at handling a project or task from beginning to end, they dislike interference in their work. If you are kind to this person, they will let you have whatever you want, but be careful. If you have not won the love and respect of these people, you may never know what they feel about you on the inside. A person completely out of the graces of a Cancer Sun will know it, however, as the Cancer will snub, ignore, and if pushed, will find any other non-combative way of letting you know you aren’t welcome, plain as day. Cancer Suns are non-combative by nature, you see. Like the symbol the crab, chances are they will side step an uncomfortable issue rather than have to face it head on. Confrontation might lift the veil from their hidden sensitivity, which is something they will attempt to avoid at just about any cost.
An important thing for folks with Cancer Sun to watch for is the tendency to love too much. Cancer Suns can unintentionally smother and strangle those they love. Cancer Sun Moms can be very overly protective of their children. There is also a proclivity toward moodiness as well. While the Cancer Sun is often intuitive and sensitive, this may show outwardly as mood swings and inconsistency.
