Cancer signs are highly intuitive and emotional people. Though they are greatly attuned to other people’s emotions, Cancer people are hard to know. They place great importance on their family and will put them above everything else in their lives. Cancer doesn’t enjoy change and they prefer to establish deep roots and connections. They’re not ambitious people and are more than happy to dedicate themselves to maintaining a happy family and home. They aren’t really social people and prefer a cozy night in to a wild night out on the town. Due to their strongly emotional nature, Cancer is moody and often unruly.
Cancer is the sign that makes us cling to the comforting and familiar. As a water sign, Cancer gets people’s creative juices flowing. Since the Moon rules Cancer, emotions and gut feelings rule everything in their life. Though they easily empathize with people’s pain and suffering, they sometimes have trouble dealing with their own negative emotions. They are people often ruled by many fears and turbulent emotions.
Going with their feelings is the most important thing for a Cancer. Cancers are ruled by their hearts in all matters.
