Cancer, the fourth sign of the zodiac, is a water sign, which signifies your highly emotional nature. Being under the sway of the element of water also makes you highly caring, generous and intuitive. You are highly evolved, even spiritual — the water signs are karmically developed and refined in spirit.
Water is malleable and adaptable. You are very much like that. You adapt when you have to, but you much prefer to make changes on your own terms. Like water, you are soothing and nourishing too. Life-supporting energies are at the heart of your character. You will act as a support for many people — in your own family and beyond.
You are for the most part a person of feeling and sensation. Often you will ignore your own judgment and rationality, and someone’s else’s reasonable advice, in favor of how you feel. You don’t care if you’re wrong, either! If your intuition tells you to do something, like reaching out to give someone a helping hand, you’ll just do it.
Others turn to you when they need a shoulder to cry on — you’ll do well in any of the caring professions. This approach is highlighted by your key life phrase, ‘I nurture’. You find it difficult to turn away anyone in need. Anyone who knows you will agree that you are one of the best people to connect with if they need advice. Friends will turn to you if they are in trouble, knowing that your sensitive and compassionate touch will lighten their load.
You are extremely receptive to your environment and the people around you, and will often ‘pick up’ people’s energies, moods and thoughts. This ability serves you well; your intuition about people is quite often correct. Your knack of knowing people’s issues before they even open their mouths attracts them to you. The difficulty with this, though, is that you can tend to absorb their emotions — negative as well as positive.
You reflect the qualities of the changing Moon. This means that at times your emotions get the better of you, and you swing from high to low. Family and friends will be well aware of this, but they will not doubt your loyalty and support.
It goes on a bit further but I've doubt you've read all of that let alone any more. I do think I am quite suited to cancer, I don't always live in my shell in fact I can be confident when you first meet me, but I definitely can also retreat in, or hide in there at first. It's not because I am afraid it's just comfy in there.
I definitely like to adapt/change in my own times. and I often do follow my feelings over rationality.
I am highly emotional, I flick at the drop of a hat and poor Michael understands this more than anyone.
I am there for anyone who needs someone, and yeah, I like to think I have a good intuition/gut instinct.
I pick up energies everywhere but that's mainly because I'm so observant that I'd be silly to not pick things up.
But yes, to sum up. I agree and do not mind my star sign. I don't like how most others have obscure things and I have a crab, but I've learnt to accept this over time, haha. How about you?
