Cancer is ruled by the Moon, and its symbol is the Crab. Cancer is a Water sign, supportive and emotional.
Cancer is the sign of emotional sensitivity and sympathy. This sign, more than any other, is associated with domestic security and homemaking. Cancers are known for being very complex and often difficult to understand due to their ever changing mood swings. One minute they can be cranky and combative and the next they may seem the sweetest and most caring individuals
Cancers have a highly developed instinct for self-defense that protects them from their inner vulnerability and shyness. Like a Crab's shell, their personalities often project a tough exterior within which they can retreat to. When hurt, Cancers often react by withdrawing and sulking, a tactic that they have refined to perfection. Cancers can be extremely stubborn and child-like, and do not usually give in until they get their way.
But underneath lies a softer side, a gentle, sensitive and emotional interior. Cancer's are by nature caring and protective. Their maternal instincts lead them to form life-long bonds and not just with family members, but anyone they come to care about deeply. Their main drive in life is to establish domestic security for themselves and for those around them. Cancers desire wealth only as a means to achieve this stability and to have money for a rainy day. They are very fond of the past and are very aware of their family lineage.
Their great sensitivity makes Cancers almost impossible to deceive. Also, they have their own way of doing things. Like a Crab's walk, their direction is often sideways and ambiguous, but they almost certainly reach their goals. If they can learn to temper their moodiness, Cancers can channel their great energies into positive directions. If one can learn to approach them, they can be loyal and devoted allies at work or at play.
