Are You a Cancer?

by Rebecca Brents

Cancer is a Water Sign

Cancer is a Water sign. Water signs are considered feminine, passive, reactive, receptive, introverted, and enduring. They attract experiences and "take advantage of opportunities" rather than creating circumstances independently.

Though capable of acting forcefully, they often prefer to "wait and see what happens" before making any moves. In addition to Cancer, the other two water signs are Scorpio and Pisces.



Cancer is also a Cardinal Sign

Cancer is also a Cardinal Sign. The Cardinal Signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. These personalities tend to be very direct and to the point in their presentation. They are energetic, personally ambitious, impulsive and impatient.

Cancer energy and the characteristics of people born under the sign of Cancer are important components in the overall process of life and creation. As with all the signs, Cancer has its strong points, its sterling qualities, and its problem side.
