Cancer, the fourth sign of the zodiac, is a water sign, which signifies your highly emotional nature. Being under the sway of the element of water also makes you highly caring, generous and intuitive. You are highly evolved, even spiritual — the water signs are karmically developed and refined in spirit.
You adapt when you have to, but you much prefer to make changes on your own terms.
You are for the most part a person of feeling and sensation. Often you will ignore your own judgment and rationality, and someone’s else’s reasonable advice, in favor of how you feel. You don’t care if you’re wrong, either! If your intuition tells you to do something, like reaching out to give someone a helping hand, you’ll just do it.
You find it difficult to turn away anyone in need. Anyone who knows you will agree that you are one of the best people to connect with if they need advice. Friends will turn to you if they are in trouble, knowing that your sensitive and compassionate touch will lighten their load.
You are extremely receptive to your environment and the people around you, and will often ‘pick up’ people’s energies, moods and thoughts. This ability serves you well; your intuition about people is quite often correct. Your knack of knowing people’s issues before they even open their mouths attracts them to you. The difficulty with this, though, is that you can tend to absorb their emotions — negative as well as positive.
You are a great success socially, because you can convey your wisdom to others so well — Cancerians have very expressive faces.Well, there you go. I find it interesting that according to this my talents lay with music, writing, and cooking. I used to play piano [wish I still did, and thinking about taking lessons again], I want to become a writer, and cooking is something that has always come naturally to me. In fact, before leaving school, and deciding to become a nurse, I was going to become a chef. How amusing.
Music and writing are perfect vehicles for you. You can express the inner part of your being as entertaining literary, art or music pieces.
Cooking is also a great outlet for you. Even if you cook as a hobby rather than as a job, you will find that it balances your state of mind over time.
You love to collect or keep mementos — such as scrapbooks and other bits and pieces — that bring back memories of good times and people you care about. You have a great memory, not just for facts, but also any good turn or kindness you’ve received.
If you are a Cancer born between 22nd June and 3rd July you are under the double influence of Moon. You are emotional, loving and destined in marriage and love life. However, try to curb your changeable emotions. Don't let sentimentality rule you.
If you were born between the 22nd of June and the 3rd of July, the power of the Moon is exceedingly strong in your case. Your moods will shift very powerfully in keeping with the phases of the moon, and to understand yourself more adequately, why not keep a calendar of the lunar phases so you can be a step ahead of what’s happening. Your romance and love life perfectly reflects who you are, particularly because you are so capable of nurturing others.
Don't even get me started on the memento thing. If you had a peek under my bed, you'd find all sorts of things I've kept from various events and such. I've called myself a "sentimental hoarder," turns out I wasn't far off on that assumption.
And how many times have I said that there are things about people I know because I just know ?! I TOLD YOU SO.
In all honesty, I don't believe that zodiac signs constrict our personalities to whatever description they say. People are people, and they're free to do as they please. I find this amusing more than anything. I find that most of these personality traits can be found in almost anyone, in fact I see a lot of my friends in these qualities, not just myself.
