22 June - 22 July
Cancer, the fourth Sign of the Zodiac, is all about the home. Those born under this Sign like to stick to their roots, they take great pleasure in the comforts of home and family. Cancers are maternal, domestic, and love to nurture others. More than likely, their family will be large. Cancerians are at their best when their home life is serene and harmonious. Traditions are upheld with great enthusiasm in a Cancerian's household, since these people prize family history and love communal activities. They also tend to be patriotic, waving the flag, whenever possible. A Cancerian's good memory is the basis for stories told around the dinner table - and don't be surprised if these people get emotional about things. Those born under this Sign wear their hearts on their sleeves.
The mascot of Cancer is the Crab and, much like this shelled little creature, Cancerians are quick to retreat into their shells, if it suits their mood. Little wonder they are called crabby! For Cancerians, it's no big deal, though, since they consider this 'shell' a second home (don't they just love home!). The flip side of this hiding temperament is that these shell-bound Crabs are often quite moody. What's more, in keeping with their difficulty in sharing their innermost feelings, it can be quite a Herculean task trying to pry the Crab out of its secret hiding place. What to do? Give the Crab time; eventually, these folks will come out to play again.When they they are ready, they'll be the first to say so, in keeping with the Cardinal Quality attached to this Sign.
It's said that Crabs are first to laugh and first to cry, so you can bet they'll finally fill you in on how they are feeling. That shell, by the way, isn't the only tough thing about Crabs. These folks are tenacious and strong-willed and like to get their way. If their well-documented kindness and gentleness doesn't do the trick, they are not above using emotional manipulation to make things happen. If that still doesn't work, they'll just go back to their shell and sulk, or find a way to get back at the source of their pain, since Crabs can be rather vindictive. That said, any self-respecting Crab would tell you that they are ultimately motivated by protecting their home and loved ones, a most noble goal.
