Cancer’s ruling planet is the moon(although scientifically the moon is regarded as a satellite), and it’s element is water. Cancerians all have a little bit of the moon’s mystique, Cancer is one of the mysterious zodiac signs.

Cancerians usually have a number of conflicting characteristics. On the one hand they are warm and soft-hearted with those close to them, on the other hand they are envious and cutthroat in their comments. Cancerians quickly change their moods; this can make them interesting, but not necessarily in a good way!

A Cancerian’s quirkiness can be captivating, but at the same time they may be feeling very insecure about themselves. It’s quite ironic that the symbol for this Zodiac sign is a crab, as this summarises a person with this star sign well. No doubt there is a tough exterior, but the interior is much softer. Those that know a Cancer well will know this.

Just like the moon, Cancers are constantly moving and never still. This means that they get a great deal of experience whilst going through their life. Cancerians are very driven by their emotions, which keeps things constantly moving. Their emotions are constantly changing, but this makes them even more endearing. As the moon changes position each day, so do people with the Cancer star sign.

Good Listeners

Cancerians possess a rare skill; they have a great capacity for listening but also give great advice. Usually people are good at one or the other, but Cancers can be good at both. They can make great advisors, both in a personal and professional capacity. However, they won’t always take your advice when it comes to their own problems. Cancers will often “disappear into themselves” when they have problems, rather than reaching out for support from others. Sometimes this makes them misunderstood.

Some aspects of their lives have a strong effect on Cancerians, whilst others will not phase them. When it comes to family and the money, they can spend a great deal of time thinking and worrying about these two things. Money can be a particular worry.

When you get under their hard exterior and see that Cancerians are softer underneath, you may think that they are easy to influence. This is not the case; people with the Cancer star sign are ‘free spirits’, but like to make their own mind up.

The Past is Important To Cancerians

Cancers love history. Their memories are top notch, and perhaps this contributes to their love of older things. It would not be unusual to walk into a Cancerian’s house and see antiques or historical souvenirs.

As the moon is technically a ‘satellite’ of the earth, it is constantly on the move, but returns to a similar position every month. In a similar sort of way, Cancerians love to travel, but also like to know they can return home when they want to. Other people with this star sign aren’t too bothered about having a home, and are content to coast through life with fewer responsibilities than the average adult.

Cancer Relationships

Though they are constantly on the move, Cancerians prefer stable relationships, and will weather the storm in times of trouble. When a relationship does go wrong, it won’t take a Cancerian too long to get over it.

Cancerians are generally good in business, as they are never short of good ideas! Their charm and intuition stands them in good stead. Cancerians are also good researchers, and this makes them very successful if they apply it to their business. However, people with this star sign tend to worry about their finances a little too much. Sometimes they need to put a little more faith in their own instincts and this is reflected in their Cancer horoscope.
