Cancer! About Your Sign
The Cancerian character is the least clear-cut of all those associated with the signs of the zodiac. It can range from the timid, dull, shy and withdrawn to the most brilliant, but fundamentally conservative and home-loving, appreciating a secure base around them. The Cancerian is not an unsociable creature; it’s just that for them there is a time to socialize and a time to be solitary. This is part of the apparent contradiction in their nature. Outwardly they can appear formidable, thick-skinned, unemotional and uncompromising but their intimates, however, may see a very different character, one with a sympathetic and kindly sensitivity to other people, especially those they love. They are able to identify with the situations of others because of the keenness of their imaginations. They are often over-imaginative and prone to fantasy, sometimes trying to shape their lives to fit some romantic ideal. Interestingly – because they give the impression of being down-to-earth – they are often fascinated by the occult and are more open to psychic influence than the average.
In their personal relationships they are mentally a mixture of toughness and softness, often emotional and romantic. But in real life and in marriage, their loving is not so sentimental but tenaciously loyal. Their first loyalty remains to spouse and family, of whom they regard themselves as the protector. They are also loyal friends, the negative side of their faithfulness being clannishness, the narrow patriotism of “my country right or wrong”; and closing ranks in suspicion and coldness toward outsiders.
The Cancerian has many potential faults. They can be untidy, sulky, devious, and moody, inclined to self-pity because of an inferiority complex, brood on insults (very often imagined), and yet are easily flattered. They can be tactless and difficult yet, because they are normally ambitious, they will curry favour by floating with majority opinions, outlooks and fashions of the day. As a result they often change their opinions and loyalties and, indeed, their occupations, and lack stability. Their romanticism in another sense makes them ardent supporters of causes, for example a football team with whose heroes they can identify in a world of fantasy.
Their abilities fit the Cancerian for a wide range of occupations. As they are interested in what people are thinking and able to judge what they can safely be told, they can be good journalists, writers or politicians. They sometimes have a penchant for trade or business and are often successful as a captain of industry. This is because they are excellent organizers with a good sense of value and economy which they may combine with a flair for inventiveness and originality. More common occupations which suit some subjects of Cancer are real estate broker, gardener and sailor.
