The Signs Of The Zodiac


21st June to 22nd July

The fourth sign of the Zodiac, Cancerians are often described as highly emotional. How much truth is there to the rumour?

Represented by the Crab, it’s said to depict the crab that attacked Hercules while he was fighting the Hydra. Interestingly, it’s sometimes shown as a crayfish or scarab- and, indeed, the present word is derived from the Greek word for crayfish. The crab is a highly appropriate symbol for Cancerians; their seemingly hard outer shell masks a soft centre.

Cancer is a cardinal water sign, meaning they are deeply intuitive, sensitive sorts, but believe in keeping their feelings private. Their friends and family are extremely important to them; certainly if you need a shoulder to cry on, a Cancerian is ideal. They’re very successful socially- they’re great fun and always know exactly what to say.

Their main flaws arise from an inability to control their feelings- they can be overly sentimental, moody and childish. Their ability to pick up on other people’s thoughts and emotions may seem a blessing, but they are also receptive to negative energy.

While Cancerians are often found in caring, customer focused professions- they make brilliant teachers, doctors, retailers and managers- you mustn’t disregard their other talents. They can look at the world in a completely new way, and often have considerable creative gifts. Cancerian writers, actors and singers abound; famous people born under the sign include George Orwell, Meryl Streep and Cat Stevens.

Cancer’s birth stone is the ruby, representing devotion, courage and vitality. It’s believed to possess healing properties and encourage positive thinking. Wearing ruby jewellery focuses the energies of the planet Mercury and the star sign through the gem.

When it comes to personal relationships, Cancerians are most compatible with fellow Water signs Scorpio and Pisces, but they feel a certain sense of connection with Taurus and Virgo. They clash badly with Fire Signs- namely, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius- and sometimes feel conflict with the Air Signs.
