Cancer! About your sign...
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It can range from the timid, dull, shy and withdrawn to the most brilliant, and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.
That is not to say that the Cancerian is unsociable, just that for them there is
a time to socialize and a time to be solitary, and this is part of the apparent
contradiction in their nature. Outwardly they can appear formidable - thick-skinned,
unemotional, uncompromising, obstinately tenacious, purposeful, energetic, shrewd,
intuitive and wise, sometimes with a philosophical profundity of thought verging
on inspiration. Their intimates, however, may see a very different character, one
with a sympathetic and kindly sensitivity to other people, especially those they
love. They are able to identify with the situations of others because of the keenness
of their imaginations. They are often over-imaginative and prone to fantasy, sometimes
trying to shape their lives to fit some romantic ideal. They are appreciative of
art and literature, and especially of drama, where the spectacle and ebb and flow
of action and feeling particularly excite them. They may themselves possess considerable
literary, artistic or oratorical talent. Their sharp ears and talent for mimicry
can sometimes give them success on the stage, though their tendency to be emotional
may make them overact. Interestingly - because they give the impression of being
down-to-earth - they are often fascinated by the occult and are more open to psychic
influence than the average. If they can reconcile the personal conflict of their
urge to be outgoing with the reserve that causes them to withdraw into themselves,
then at best they can inspire a generation, especially the youthful part of it,
by their idealism. A job in which they can express this, and in which they can do
well, would be as a leader in a youth organization.
personal relationships they are mentally a mixture of toughness and softness, often
emotional and romantic to the point of sentimentality in their fantasies; but in
real life and in marriage, their loving is not so sentimental but tenaciously loyal.
Even if they have affairs (and they may do so, for the male in particular is open
to sensual stimulation), their first loyalty remains to spouse and family, of whom
they regard themselves as the protector. Both the Cancerian man and woman love unreservedly,
giving much and asking little in return - in fact, one of the most important lessons
they have to learn is how to receive gracefully. They are too easily influenced
by those they love and admire, and swayed by the emotion of the moment. They are
also loyal friends, the negative side of their faithfulness being clannishness,
the narrow patriotism of "my country right or wrong"; and closing ranks in suspicion
and coldness toward outsiders.
have a retentive memory, particularly for emotionally laden events which they can
recall in detail for years afterwards. they are strongly governed by childhood memories
and since they live intensely in the past in memory and in the future in imagination,
a chance meeting with someone for whom they had an unrequited love, even if they
thought they had conquered the feeling, will easily rouse the emotion all over again.
has many potential faults. They can be untidy, sulky, devious, moody, inclined to
self-pity because of an inferiority complex, brood on insults (very often imagined),
yet are easily flattered. They can be tactless and difficult yet, because they are
normally ambitious, they will curry favor by floating with majority opinions, outlooks
and fashions of the day. As a result they often change their opinions and loyalties
and, indeed, their occupations, and lack stability. They are easily corrupted and,
because they are convincing romanticizers, can make successful confidence tricksters.
Their romanticism in another sense make them ardent supporters of causes, for example
a football team with whose heroes they can identify in a world of fantasy.
fit the Cancerian for a wide range of occupations. As they are interested in what
people are thinking and able to judge what they can safely be told, they can be
good journalists, writers or politicians, though in this last capacity they are
more likely to remain in the background rather than attain prominent positions of
power. They may, indeed, change their party affiliations. They can serve in other
departments of public affairs, especially those which involve looking after others,
for example in any kind of service from welfare and nursing to catering - their
own love of comfort and good living makes the Cancerian an excellent chef or housekeeper.
They sometimes have a penchant for trade or business and are often successful as
a captain of industry. This is because they are excellent organizers with a good
sense of value and economy which they may combine with a flair for inventiveness
and originality. The romantic side of their natures make them enjoy grubbing about
in places where exciting discoveries may be made (old stamp collections in attics,
etc.), and if they can do this professionally as a secondhand dealer or specialist
in antiques, they will be happy. More common occupations which suit some subjects
of Cancer are real estate broker, gardener and sailor.
they are average to below average in height, with a fleshy body and short legs in
comparison with the rest of them. Their hair is usually brown, their faces round,
their complexions pale, their foreheads prominent, their eyes small and blue or
gray in color, their noses short, perhaps upturned, and their mouths full. They
sometimes walk clumsily.
Possible Health Concerns...
the chest, breasts, elbows, stomach and digestion, womb and female reproductive
organs Cancer, which can affect any part of the body, is sometimes said to have
taken its name from this sign, which can therefore afflict its subjects with imperfections
anywhere. This is incorrect, however, the derivation of cancer being the Latin cancer
meaning gangrene as well as crab. nevertheless, Cancerians are said to be liable
to breast cancer and to suffer from pleurisy, dropsy, piles and varicose veins.

stomach ills, and there is a tendency to coughs and weakness of vision.

Some more interesting facts about your sign:
is a nocturnal water creature that is well equipped with its massive claws to defend
itself and survives very well in the 'wilds' of the underwater world in which it
thrives. They have also been prized for food throughout the ages. Crabs come in
a variety of 'styles' and species and are found in most of the oceans of the world,
as well as in many inland waters. Being a sea scavenger, the crabs help mankind
by keeping our waters cleaner.
for Cancer is all the shining colors of the moon SILVER
is the beautiful, translucent, PEARL. The Pearl can be all the silvery colors of
the moon and not just white. The pearl takes on its silvery, shimmering, colors
from the color of the linings of the mollusc (oyster) in which it is grown. A beautiful,
perfect pearl can sell for as much as $250,000.00, so speaking of a 'pearl of great
price' becomes readily understandable. This precious stone can be harmed if subjected
to hair spray, acids, perspiration, and some types of cosmetics.
