CANCER There is little doubt about it: Cancerians are very like eggs. Both have hard shells and very soft interiors! It is interesting to observe the Cancerian shell in action. Challenge a Cancerian and you will at once see a strong psychological defensive system come into play. At times they will take a hard line, expressing an element almost of aggression; but aggression directly related to self-defence, or the defence of their families. Eventually, however, the shell cracks and we reach the delightful, softer, sensitive person under it.
The family unit is of prime importance to Cancerians. While they make excellent parents, it is sometimes the case that a reluctance to let young birds fly from the next causes considerable heartache. They are sentimental and very nostalgic, with excellent memories and fantastic imaginations. All these qualities being positively expressed towards their children. The children of the sign can be extremely sensitive and perhaps fractious, but the Cancerian psychological motivation towards care and protection will soon begin to find expression, especially towards younger members of the family or small domestic pets. In love, Cancerians are moody but very sensual. They may overreact to slight injuries, but they too can injure others. Worry is possibly Cancerians worst health-hazard and friends of Cancerians should encourage the to follow their instincts and intuitions when troubled by problems, since these faculties are powerful and can be relied upon to help resolve difficulties.
Cancer In Love Cancer are fun lovers to be around – since their humor is sophisticated and knowledgeable in the ways of humanity. They love to laugh – both at themselves as well with others – they are good providers and seem to have a magic touch where money is concerned. A sensitive, romantic, soft and gentle lover who, when hurt through love, may take considerable time to trust others. Once they feel confident however, the Cancer can expose a wild side that is surprising in their sexual resourcefulness. They are loyal and imaginative lovers who delight in cuddling.
Cancer At Work Cancer is the sign of the prophet or teacher and by nature they like to create an area of harmony and happiness for all around them. They like to lead, and as long as they are comfortable with both their colleagues and work on any project, will more than likely succeed. Cancerians are very creative and practically revere the home, qualities that can reflect within their workplace where appropriately merged.
Loves: Belonging to a family group and being with people they know and are familiar with, for old habits die hard and the sense of cosy and comfortable security they derive from feeling at home is mother’s milk to them.
Hates: A lack of emotional contact, so they need people around who reach out and give them oodles of cuddles. Cold, uncaring or callous characters who impinge on their good nature and intrude on their inner feelings.
Needs To Cultivate: A less sensitive soul and spirit as they can take offence where none was ever intended, so they must grow a much thicker skin and learn to let some things wash over them like water off a duck’s back.
You are more in touch with your emotions when the Moon is in your sign and you feel that other people understand your feelings too. This gets your day off to a good start, but later on when the Moon is void of course you might get moody or feel out of sync. Don’t make big decisions based upon what you are feeling. You will feel more steady tomorrow and you’ll know what’s what.
