One of the most protective and emotional sun signs.
Cancer - A Loving Perfectionist
Emotional and nurturing.
As a Cancer, you are often misrepresented. Sure you are touchy, moody and overly sensitive but you are also the nurturer and probably the most caring signs of all the zodiac. Very emotional, emotions guide your life and this can be a good thing but it usually causes you trouble. Your emotions overflow from yourself and on to the people who are close to you. You strive for happiness and security.
So passionate about the things in your life, you want everything to be perfect. This puts a lot of unnecessary pressure on you. Nothing in life is perfect and accidents happen. You worry too much and you might never stop worrying but if you are at least aware that you worry because you care and need security, this might help ease your emotional troubles. You have to lighten up a little bit and know that some things are out your control. What is meant to be will be, you cannot completely control your destiny.
Mysterious and secretive.
An amazing friend but you don't have many - by your own choice. To the world, people see your shell but to them you are a mystery, no one really knows the real you. Only a few do, the few that you have selected after a rigorous process of observation can get close. You have difficulty trusting people, this characteristic is because you know that allowing anyone to get close to you will eventually cause you pain and suffering, and you need to avoid pain at all costs because you feel it too intensely and you suffer immensely. You are easily hurt by someone's comment, even if they were joking you take it seriously. If someone harms you, they are on your hit list and you will never forgive them easily. On the other hand, anyone who goes out of their way to do something for you, you remember forever and will repay that person.
Cancer Sign is Caring.
You care so deeply that others pain is your pain, their bliss is your bliss. You experience feelings and emotions just as intensely as the other person and they probably do not know this. If they disregard you, you are easily hurt but if they really knew how you felt, they might react differently and sympathize with you for sympathizing with them. This might sound confusing but the lesson here is to reveal your feelings and be straight the other person. Tell them how you feel and what you think because if you don't, people cannot read your mind and they will never know. Unfortunately, it is hard to open up because as a Cancer, you are a crab in your shell and revealing your true feelings is like exposing your delicate underbelly, you fear getting hurt. No one realizes just how over sensitive you are (unless they are reading this right now)!
Cancer Sign is Protective.
Just like the crab in it's shell, you will usually attempt to retreat but if you cant, you will strike with your claws and defend yourself. This means that you can be downright nasty if you or someone you love suffers injustice. A powerful force to be reckoned with when you are needed. You will defend your turf, an you are quite territorial and possessive. Any one or anything that becomes your 'property' will be yours for life, you will defend it forever, nurture it and wrap it under your soft and cozy security blanket.
Tends to Wear Rose Colored Glasses.
If you are faced with a dire situation and your defense efforts are hopeless, or even if it is something you don't really care about, you will step aside and avoid it. You might find that you have a list of things to be done that have not yet been done, these are just things that you don't really care about. Then you procrastinate and hide in the corner hoping it will go away. Unfortunately, you have to take off your rose colored glasses and deal with things you don't want to deal with.
Assertive and Successful.
The biggest lesson for you to learn in life is that you can do anything you put your mind to. Lose the shaky self confidence in your personality and get to work on that project that you are unsure about. You have the drive needed to see things though until completion, the assertiveness required to motivate people to be on your side and help you, the adaptability to confront any situation, you have the intelligence to know where to put your money and don't forget that cancer is the most intuitive sign, trust you gut instinct because it won't steer you in the wrong direction. Security is very important to you and this includes financial security and your intuition will never steer you away from your security blanket. Cancer can be wildly successful in business, you just have to take the first step and make your move.
