June 21 to July 22
Symbol: The Crab
Keyphrase: I Feel
Cancer is your Mom friend. Doesn’t matter if it is a guy Cancer. Still your Mom friend.
Cancer’s their name, nurturing is their game. They are intuitive self-starters with the ability to see right through you when something is wrong. It is beautiful really… until they start smothering. Then it can be really, really uncomfortable.
Then, of course, when someone needs space from the Cancer and says so, Cancer gets hurt. Then they retreat into a shell just like the Crabs they are. Then you get the silent treatment.
Until they miss you.
Because they love you.
And then it starts all over again.
But, it is easy to love them, too… because they simply care so very much. Sincerely.
Cancers are known to be moody. That is not only because of their connection to their fast-moving ruler, the Moon, but also because they are deeply emotional and easily hurt. They wear their hearts on their sleeves, even though they try to hide it because they want to be the one who is strong, who is the caregiver, and the rock for everyone else.
