Cancers are ruled by the moon and the symbol for their sign
is the crab. If you have friends who are Cancers there a several distinct
traits you'll do well to understand as these people have lots to offer to those
they consider friends.
1. Cancers are often loners
Don't be surprised if your Cancer friends
seem to disappear every so often. Cancers simply need alone time because they
are deeply sensitive to the energies and moods of everyone around them. When they
feel overloaded they will retreat, and they might not give you notice of their
intention. It is not personal, but just a way for them to conserve their
2. Strong intuition
Those born under the sign of Cancer have
very powerful intuition and can detect what is going on with others, especially
those they love. Be mindful that your Cancer friend has a bead on what is
happening with you but won't reveal this information until you share it openly.
Cancers are extraordinarily nurturing
and mothering. If you have Cancer friends and they have children, they are
excellent parents; they're loving, creative, and empowering. If they don't have
children, they can be obsessed with the need to care for someone. Their
nurturing energy must find a way to express. With this in mind be sure to allow
them to nurture and love you, it's in their DNA.
4. Home is where Cancer's heart is
If you have a Cancer friend, please
be aware that her home is her everything, and that is where she prefers to be.
Those who live in her home are her responsibility (at least in her mind), and
she will protect them at all costs. A Cancer will host many events, holidays,
and gatherings in her home; she knows it will be done well and to her
standards. Guests feel safe and comfortable when at a Cancer's place.
5. Deeply emotional
Cancers' emotions run deep and are
very real to them. Trust that what a Cancer feels strongly about will
eventually manifest. They have a tendency to judge themselves for having such strong emotions, until they accept themselves as perfect as they are. Being ruled by the moon is the energy that drives their emotions. It's science.
