Cancer Personality – Positive & Negative Traits
Cancer is a watery sign. There is an old saying: “water is the softest thing, yet it can penetrate mountains and earth”. This is how Cancerians can be described. It is an emotional sign and feelings are openly displayed. Cancer people are sensitive to others’ pain and suffering. There is an inherent motherly nature with them. The soft and tender heart in them will always aspire them to serve and give a helping hand.
Generally, these folks prefer to be in a protective environment. They may not be big risk takers and keep themselves away from potential threats. Generally, they prefer to first own a house more than anything. They feel owning a house will safeguard them and their family. Their family is everything to them. They find happiness and joy in taking responsibility for the family members. They can sacrifice to any extent to see the joy in the family. At the same time, they will become very attached to the family and separation for a brief moment can also take them into depression. They are more attached to their mothers. At the time of crisis, they prefer their mother to console them.
Cancer often becomes moody. Their emotions and feelings swing wildly. It is very important for them to create a balance in their emotions. The people around them have to deal with them patiently in this situation. Like Moon changes its pattern every day, the mental framework also beyond their control.
Cancerians are intuitive and blessed with psychic abilities. However, the level of intuition depends on the position and aspect on Moon from other planets. Generally, they are able to process the information in their mind very fast and take appropriate decisions. This will happen because their mind is not rigid and aligned to the nature. Hence the mind will become receptive to the changing environment.
Crab is the symbol of the Cancer. Crab is a creature which has a tough and strong outer layer (shell) which protects soft and gentle inside.
