Cancer is a Water Sign. Cancers or Crabs are sensitive, emotional, harmonious, dedicated yet fixed. Most Cancer-born value their home, loved ones and comforts more than anything else. To most Cancer-born, the noblest goal lies in sheltering and providing every comfort to their loved ones. Soothing and caring Cancers are also quick to offer help to others. For the most part, they try and avoid conflicts, as much as possible. This very trait makes them quiet and controlled about their own feelings.
Cancer, the Crab will quickly withdraw and retreat to the safety of its shell rather than confront and come clean – whenever faced with a conflict or dilemma. Nonetheless, a persistent determination is one of the greatest strengths of the strong Cancer-born. They may not appear to have great ambitions, on the surface, yet their desires and goals are deep and profound. At work, the Cancerians make for good managers and organizers and are often seen taking good care of their co-workers and maintaining friendly, family like relations with them.
