Happy Cancer season! The Latin word for Cancer is crab hence Cancer the crab! Cancer is cardinal water and is ruled by the Moon. The planet and the sign are about security.
Cancers are thought to be sensitive, caring, and nurturing like the Moon. They can appear as tough as they tend to hide their sensitivity. One of the main fears of Cancers is being dependent on others. They can get defensive if they feel threatened.
Cancers love being at home. They love the familiar. They are not known for enjoying travel.
A skilled Cancer is nurturing, emotional, and intuitive. An unskilled Cancer comes across as moody, extremely cautious, and manipulative.
When it comes to relationships, Cancers tend to get along well with Scorpio, Pisces, Virgo, and Taurus. The least compatible signs are Aries, Capricorn, and Libra.
Where Cancer is in your house represents your home, your roots, and what we are like in private.
