Although you are very emotional, you have a hard shell like the Crab, which symbolises your Sign. However, you are very soft and sensitive under the shell, and that's why harsh words from others can deeply hurt you. 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 cool over things that seem insignificant to others. You also have a habit of latching on to things from your past, and find it very difficult to let go, which in turn hampers your progress towards your defined goals in life. There may be a bit of a contradiction here, but you can be shrewd 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 into fits of laughter. You are a family person, and your nest is the most important thing in the world for you.

Cancer Key Planet: Moon
In a fixed pattern, the Moon keeps waxing and waning, completing a full cycle in about 28 days, in which it takes a complete circle of the Earth. It is never the same two nights in a row. 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 deeply impacts the manner in which you interact with people around you. You can get the Remedial Solutions for Personal Issues report, basis your Natal Chart, prepared by our expert astrologers, to resolve your problems on the personal front.
Fourth House: Home and Family
Family is the primary concern for a Cancer-born. Cancer-born tend to have a large family, possess motherly qualities, as the 4th House is related to the mother. They love to nurture others, and never lose kinship with the people who nurtured them in early life; not just family members, but even friends in the neighbourhood and distant relatives. Their sub-conscious mind, if analysed correctly, can indicate how childhood events have shaped their lives.
Cancer Element: Water
The Water Sign in astrology represents emotion, and Cancer is a prominent member of the Water element. 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 personality. Your feelings 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 h5 qualities are trustworthiness, reliability, adaptability, empathy and responsiveness. In fact, you can buy the fully personalised Chart your Destiny report, to make the best use of your strengths and fulfil your dreams.
Being temperamental, clingy and selfish are some of your negative points. Fear of certain past events coming back to haunt you in the future could cause anxiety.
Perhaps the biggest weakness of the Crabs is getting into monotony, and then it becomes very difficult for them to come out of it. Another is their sweet tooth. They tend to over-indulge in sweets, ice-cream and desserts, which can make them gain too much weight. There is also the danger of contracting diabetes. Chewing on sugar-free gum or dried fruit can be a safe way out. As for money habits, they can be very particular about saving for emergencies. They make it a point to budget their expenses in a manner that provides for maximum savings.
