Cancer – true romantic

Just like the crab, Cancerians build themselves a sturdy outer shell to protect their inner sensitivity

Of all the star signs, Cancer harbours the most family-oriented members. For these people, home is the centre of their universe. Many Cancerians are happy to devote themselves entirely to the care and protection of their loved ones, striving hard to create a warm and harmonious domestic life so essential to their well being. Cancerians are gentle, sentimental and emotional creatures, who learn early on in their lives that it is sometimes better to hide their sensitive feelings under the protective covering of a crab-like shell.

At work and play, Cancerians’ inborn instinct for nurturing others finds a natural outlet in the caring professions, such as medicine and nursing. People belonging to this group are inherently empathetic and many have a wonderful bedside manner, which others find magically healing and soothing. Also, their domestic talents can turn them into master chefs and experts in the catering trades. Moreover, brilliant flashes of intuition, coupled with a phenomenal memory, puts these natives head and shoulders above any competitor in the world of business or in the financial sector.

In love and relationships, Cancerians are true romantics. They adore body contact, so enjoy nothing better than snuggling up to the person they love. Whether male or female, the nurturing instinct comes naturally to members of this sign, and deep affection for their loved ones flows naturally from a seemingly bottomless well. As partners, they are warm and emotional, protective and supportive. However, if their feelings are hurt, they can become moody and irrational, retreating into their shells until such time as they feel it is safe to face life once again.

In health, this sign rules the chest, the breasts, and the stomach. A tendency to worry, which leads to digestive problems, is typical of people born at this time of year. The kidneys can also be one of their weaker links. As a result, the health message for Cancerians is that they need to learn to relax, to eat healthy natural foods and to generally take care of their diets.

Where wealth is concerned, family treasures handed down from generation to generation often form the basis of Cancerian wealth. These are nostalgic people who prize antiques and may astound themselves when they discover the value of the pieces they possess. Other than that, Cancerians are notorious collectors and can make a handsome profit from this hobby.
