Cancer, the crab is the fourth sign of the zodiac. This sign is ruled by the moon and is a water sign.
Cancer’s motto is “I feel” but unless you and your Cancer lover become very, very close you will never know what he feels. Because it is a water sign, you can imagine Cancer as the ocean with its ebb and flowing tide washing up on the shore and back out again. This is a perfect description of a Cancer’s emotions.
A feminine sign, Cancer is all about the home and family. If you do not know your Cancer lover’s loyalty to his family you are not as close as you thought you were. Like the crab that carries its home on its back, Cancer as a person will always put family loyalty first. Your Cancer lover will never be broke; Cancers hoard their money just like they do everything else.
Cancers do not easily reveal their emotions. You may never know how much your Cancer lover cares about you. This sign of the zodiac is terribly insecure. Like a crab, Cancer often withdraws into his shell and is loath to come out. What Cancer needs most is love and security and they have to trust in their mate before they commit.
A Cancer will always have a favorite spot in the home that is nearly sacred to him. No one else dares to sit in his favorite chair or use his favorite afghan. Cancers color is silver and his jewel is a pearl. The suite of Tarot cardsthat pertains to Cancer is cups. The best choice for a signification is the Temperance card (signifying patients and adaption). Crabs are loving, dependable, generous but they can also be selfish, clingy, moody and smothering.
Crabs are often scurrying off on a tangent. You cannot reason with a Cancer if he is upset so don’t even try. Just let him calm down and then talk the problem out. Cancers are very psychic and often have an advantage when dealing with other people. Because of this, they also absorb the feeling around them. The yearning to protect our families and our property is ruled by Cancer.
As Jupiter passes into Aries around June 6, there is a big change in romance for this sign. Until September there will be a special spark in the air for Cancer but do not take this statement as a sign that your Cancer lover is ready (or even willing) to settle down. This is a time when Cancer may be looking for a few new playmates: you may need to keep your Cancer lover interested by role playing or pretending to have just met or that it’s your first date. In July there can be some tension in your relationship and it will be up to you to keep your Cancer lover on a steady keel over the rough waves until late Fall when this water sign again becomes smooth as silk.
