Cancer and its Personality
Cancer has as its symbol the Crab. It’s a creature with soft flesh, that’s protected by a hard shell. So one of the first things to recognize about this sign is that it’s very defensive.
The Crabs regard the world as being a heavy place, and they’re always careful about letting their guard down. At the same time, their sensitivities are finely tuned, and they’re very good at picking up vibes. This means they’re often the first to be aware of a dangerous situation.
And when they meet someone for the first time they listen to their hearts and form an opinion very quickly.
If one wants a different creature to symbolise Cancer, aside from the Crab, then consider a spider. Many spiders are territorial – they spin a web, and they make themselves comfortable in its centre. Or they hang out in the corner of a room, where the ceiling meets the walls. That way they’ve got advanced warning of danger, and they’re also in a good position to defend their space. So it’s hardly surprising that Cancerians are happiest when they’re in a secure environment, which is usually their own home.
On a different note, the Crabs have an excellent memory – they can conjure up images from the past, and if anyone has crossed them they’ll never forget and rarely forgive. They also have a vivid imagination, which is why a fair few Cancerians become artists and novelists.
