About the Sun Sign Cancer (June 22 to July 22)
The Cancerian character is the least clear-cut of all those associated with the signs of the zodiac. It can range from the timid, dull, shy and withdrawn to the most brilliant, and famous Cancerians are to be found through the whole range of human activity. It is a fundamentally conservative and home-loving nature, appreciating the nest like quality of a secure base to which the male can retire when he needs a respite from the stresses of life, and in which the Cancerian woman can exercise her strong maternal instincts. The latter tends to like and to have a large family. 'Nest like' is an appropriate adjective for the Cancerian home, for its inhabitants tend to favor the dark, mysterious but comfortable type of house which has something of the air of a den about it, a place which belongs to the family rather than existing as a showcase to impress visitors.
Cancer in Relationships
Home is where the heart is for Cancer, a great nurturer and protector of family, home and tradition. This sign is ruled by the Moon, and the Crab's emotions often swing with the cycle of that shimmering orb. Catch that mood on an upswing, and you are likely to encounter a caring and devoted soul who can easily take the lead in romance. The strong-willed, persistent Crab will usually get its way, but that's not a bad thing, since it usually means being drawn into a shell, which is rife with carnal pleasures. As is natural to a Water sign, Cancer's moods can flow like a meandering river or rage like the highest seas.
Cancer is dominated by the Moon...not truly a planet in the astronomical sense, but considered to be one for the purposes of astrological science. Much like the lunar orb itself, the Moon's influence is changeable, yet understandable and thus, controllable. Imagination is the chief trait of those governed by the Moon and it is a trait that can be carried to almost fanciful extremes. On one hand, the lunar subject exhibits the insight commonly known as intuition...on the other, an over-abundance of imagination may lead to worry and hysteria. Somewhere inbetween, there is a restless and ever-changing trend, which can run the gamut from idle daydreaming to a compelling urge for purposeless travel. By and large, those governed by the Moon are uncertain creatures.
