All About Cancer

June 21 - July 22


by Tarotcom Staff

Sensitive Cancer is just like its crustacean symbol, the Crab. Ruled by the emotional Moon, Cancer is a great big softie on the inside, but has a tough exterior shell for self-protection.

Cancer Crabs are extremely loving and loyal, but they keep their feelings hidden to avoid getting hurt. Watch out, because a hurt Crab can really pinch! Cancer is the most nurturing zodiac sign, and loves to take care of family and friends. In fact, they are so fiercely loyal they will protect their loved ones at all costs. Sometimes Cancer holds on too tight, in fact, and can inadvertently smother loved ones with too much affection.

To avoid becoming crabby, all Cancer needs is someone in their life they can trust and share their feelings with.

What we love about Cancer

Nurturing and protective, Cancer loves to take care of people and make everyone feel at home.

Why Cancer drives us nuts

Sensitive Cancer can take things personally, overreact and get upset at the drop of a hat. Mood swings are no fun to be around!

Cancer advice

Because Cancer is so deeply emotional, their feelings are too easily hurt. Try to control your mood swings by thinking twice before overreacting. 

Most compatible matches

Sentimental Cancer seeks safety in relationships, and is most compatible with equally security-loving signs Virgo and Taurus.

Least compatible matches

Cuddly Cancer is least compatible with less sensitive Fire signs Aries and Leo, and breezy Air signs Gemini and Libra.
