Your sign of Cancer is symbolised by the Crab. You are very emotional, though you have a very hard shell. Because you are so soft and sensitive from inside, harsh words from others can easily hurt you deeply. You are apt to sink into depression quite frequently. You tend to seek solace in your family members and close friends, but soon realise that they can at best provide only temporary happiness. You may find the higher, permanent happiness quite elusive. You are also prone to mood swings, and can lose your temper over things that seem trivial to others. You also have a habit of latching on to things from your past, and find it very difficult let go, which in turn impedes your progress towards your defined objectives in life. There may be a bit of a contradiction here, but you can be cunning and selfless at the same time. However, you do have a keen sense of humour, and with the things you say, you can send your friends rolling in laughter. You are a family person, and your nest for you is the most important thing in the world. To gain deeper insight into your nature, you might like to try our product Janampatri.
Cancer Key Planet: Moon
The Moon keeps waning and waxing – it’s never the same two nights in a row. It travels around the Earth once a month. Women’s menstrual cycles are closely linked with the lunar rhythm, putting them closer to the subconscious realms of the Moon. For your sign, man or woman, the Moon is the key planet, and deeply influences your feelings and emotions. The Moon also symbolises your basic needs, and governs the manner in which you interact with other people.
Fourth House: Home and Family
Those of you born under the sign of Cancer, are great family people. You tend to have a large family. You possess motherly qualities, as the Fourth House is related to the mother. You love to nurture others, and never lose affinity with the people who nurtured you in early life, not just family members, but even friends in the neighbourhood and distant relatives. It can also denote your sub-conscious mind, and how childhood memories have influenced you.
Cancer Element: Water
Cancer is a prominent member of the Water element. The Water sign in astrology represents emotion. Therefore, your emotions can either be full of ripples or can be as calm as a lake; it can be shallow or deep as a sea. The flow of Water also explains the frequent mood swings that you have in the course of a single day. High and low tides in the Water, caused by the Moon, also have a bearing on your temperament. Your emotions sometimes flow smoothly like the river, and sometimes are still as in a lake, but almost always they run deep.
The ability to nurture others is your biggest strength. Your other strong qualities are trustworthiness, reliability, adaptability, empathy and responsiveness.
On the flip side, being temperamental, clingy and selfish are some of your weaknesses. Fear of the bygone days coming back to the future weakens you the most. You might like to try out our product Gemstone Recommendation to overcome these weaknesses.
