About Cancer Zodiac Sign
Cancers lead with their emotions. They’ll place protecting their family, their team or their tribe above other concerns. They use their empathy and nurturing skills to care for those around them, and will do anything to help a friend in need.
But they’ve learned from hard experience they need their protective shells and their razor-sharp pinchers. Anger a Cancer, and you’ll feel the hard, sharp side of both. They instinctively know where your soft spots are too. They are attached to the past, so their memories (for the real and the imagined) are long.
Cancer in Relationships
Inside its hard shell lies a passionate and romantic heart. The Water signs Pisces and Scorpio understand Cancer’s need to feel first, ask questions later, and the Earth sign Taurus gets its need to feel safe in order to trust. Even if the other Earth signs Virgo and Capricorn don’t grok Cancer, they at least have the patience to let it stew as necessary.
If Cancer gets lost in self-pity, a Libra encourages talking it through; an Aries offers a kick in the booty. Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius and Aquarius may feel like aliens from another world — Cancer might need to pull out the universal translator.
