Cancer is the fourth zodiac in which sun transits from June 22nd to July
22nd. It is identified as “Kark Rashi” in Hindi. The symbol of the zodiac
is The Crab. Moon rules over it. Punarvasu, Pushya and Ahlesha are the
Nakshatras under this zodiac.
Cancerians are ruled by Moon. And everyone knows about the changing
facets of this satellite. Moon waxes and wanes; its distances from earth
changes constantly, and it comes full round in 28 days. Very much on the
same lines, Cancerains are gentle and sweet one day, critical and cranky
the next; They are practical and sensible at all times, and yet they can
take your breath away by the sudden romantic side of theirs. They can be
hardcore about money and security, miser to the hilt, and yet can turn
magnanimous suddenly. Often they are endowed with artistic capabilities
you never knew about. Cancerians are as unpredictable. But it has nothing
to do with Geminian type of unpredictability. They just have different
dimensions, which come up under different circumstances.
Give them warmth and security, and you will have a loyal friend for life.
They wont confess their devotion verbally, as they are the secret store
box of all their emotions stacked hidden most of the times. What you may
see in a Cancerian may not be what you get. Varied emotions govern them,
and the treasure runs much deep than visible.
Most of the lot seems miser, conservative and practical on the onset. But
that`s because Cancerians are highly self-defensive. For them, lavishing
money is a crime when a sound bank balance can build homes, good
investment, purchase some substantial needful things, and even can help a
friend in need. See, that`s not misery! That is what they call quality
They also seem to be self-centered to most of the world. But that`s
because they are very sentimental though they never reveal their feelings
as they don`t want to get hurt or invest their feelings in something
Cancerians will not show it, but they are very emotional people
constantly needing emotional security of love and warmth. For them their
family means the most, and is the roots of all securities in life. For
them, a sound financial standing means they will never have to loose the
family, will never have to remain hungry…. In short, even money spells
They seem so much self obsessed within their own insecurities, that they
often turn withdrawn and depressed in a shell. They can be at times
intense brooders. But they are not selfish. In fact, they are highly
intuitive about other`s pains and troubles than most. And they can come
up with generous help at unexpected quarters when you really need it.
Cancerians are also sound leaders, who never make rash, impulsive
decisions. Their decisions are always well thought and diagnosed.

incidents of their own life, or history in general. That is the reason
they take time to come out afresh of their habits and emotional patterns.

They are thoughtful and compassionate. Cancerians love nature. Water
bodies and full moon have special effects on their being.

nourish the world. Doesn`t the two words, nourishing and nurturing sound
familiar?? Well! They are the eternal adjectives for the water sign of

Cancer AstrologyCancerians value family, and are very keen on finding the
right mate for themselves. A mate who can understand their emotional
needs are usually the apt one to go with them. Behind their hard shell,
they are the most romantic and vulnerable souls. Cancerains are the one
to pamper his/ her lover by taking them for candlelight dinners, moonlit
walks and theatres. They won`t be keen on sweeping a lover`s feet in out
of the world romance, but will definitely bestow affection and
understanding. Their relationship means a lot to them. The occasional
period when a Cancerian retreats in a shell is a difficult time for their
partners. But by giving a bit of patience understanding, warmth and
faith, one can have the most compassionate Cancerian lover for life. And
that speaks of a constant friend, a good husband, and a wonderful father.
Geminis don`t usually go with this sign. Libra and Aquarius can be gentle
with this sign. Earth signs like Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn make good
companions. Cancerians gel well with water signs of Pisces, Scorpio and
fellow Cancerians. Fire signs are generally incompatible.
