June 21 – July 22
Ruling Planets: The Moon
Symbol: The Crab
Life pursuit: Intimacy and constant reassurance
Secret desire: feel safe (emotionally, spiritually, romantically, financially)
Born under the sign of Cancer, and ruled by the very mysterious Moon, makes these people a true Zodiac enigma. Constantly contradicting themselves, and seemingly all over the place. Compassionate and very caring with friends, loved ones, and family, but they can really hurt feelings with their jealous remarks, thanks to their moodiness. Keeping with the contradicting theme here, they can be eccentric, but also very insecure about how others view them.
Like their symbol The Crab, they can appear tough, and hard on the outside, but underneath the shell is a soft side, giving these moon children a very special gift.
The Moon goes through many changes, and phases, just like Cancer’s. Even though they may remain in one place, life does not stand still for this sign. Living within their own internal ocean of emotion, their link with the moon makes it impossible to remain even keep from day to day. This proverbial yo-yo of sorts can feel totally different about certain things in life from one day to the next. Say one thing, do another, this is part of their irresistible charm.
Love and romance are very important to this sign, actually more than anything else. No sign romances better, and no sign takes a harder hit during breakups. Mysterious, alluring, fascinating.
