The first in the trio of Water signs, Cancer takes its place during the time of blossoming, fertility, and a solstice…that is at the beginning of Summer.
Like its ruling planet the Moon, Cancer projects a calm and peaceful surface, while internal waters are deep and turbulent.
Those people strongly marked by Cancer are especially sensitive with regard to their mother and family, as well as their past. Imaginative and possessing a strong intuition, natives of this sign can also be hypersensitive and a little capricious. They have a hard time ridding themselves of old habits.
The true Cancer native is sentimental, a dreamer and inclined to be submissive, even if they absolutely deny that fact. Because of their vulnerability, these individuals tend to hide beneath the "armour" of the Crab, which is this sign’s symbol. Far from the harsh realities of life, Cancer natives strive towards peace in a protected environment.
