Cancers are maternal, domestic, patriotic, and love to nurture others; they stick to their roots and take great pleasure in the comforts of home and family. They prize family history and love communal activities, and are at their best when their home life is serene and harmonious; they are providing, protecting and making a nest wherever they go
Cancer is sensitive, more concerned with expressing emotions than on superficial conversations. They are not shy, but protecting themselves against emotional exposure. They are very artistic and creative and hold onto everything including wealth. Money and material wealth are fairly important for them and most of the decisions in life are made with the accompanying monetary benefits in mind.
Cancer is often difficult to understand for their moods are often changing from sweet to cranky, emotions are hidden beneath the tough exterior. Like the crab, when they are hurt, they will retreat into their shell tending to be bitter and melancholic, often feeling hurt unnecessarily. Their cruel behavior is only a clever means to hide insecurities and complexes. Inside they are timid, admirable, kind, generous, understanding and gracious. They are charitable and stand by people in their time of need.
