More About Cancer

Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac. As we move through the signs, this symbolises the part of our journey in which we become aware of our origins and inheritance. This reflects how much your nature is coloured by conditioning and habits formed early on in life. Your ruling planet is the Moon, which is concerned with your instinctive reactions to life and this gives you a responsive, reflective, receptive nature. In mythology, the Moon deity was goddess of fertility, the mother who nurtures and nourishes. This is why those born under this sign tend to be maternal and motivated to look after, protect and feed their young within the safety of a home. Yours is the sign of the Crab and its symbol suggests the shape of the crab or a mother’s breasts. Your element is Water, which makes you sympathetic, emotional and imaginative. Cancer is a Cardinal sign which means you can take the initiative and your sensitivity is your driving force. You are shrewd, thrifty and tenacious. You can sometimes be a little moody, impressionable and defensive. But you respond to life in a kind, caring, sympathetic manner. You may be interested in the past and history and are likely to have a good memory.
