Cancer: the 4th Zodiac Sign

Cancer

is the fourth sign of the Zodiac. It follows Gemini in the Zodiacal line-up. As a rule, the range of Cancer covers the time from June 22nd until July 22nd.

It is a time of devotion to private life matters, connecting with one's family and domestic concerns, tending to one's physical dwelling, and giving attention to one's feelings and inner world.

It is associated with mothering, protection, support, encouragement, intuition, and emotions. In mundane matters, Cancer is connected with the circumstances of your home life and family circle, your heritage, your involvement with mothering and protecting those you love, your psychological security, your foundations, and the end of life.

Cancer's symbol is the crab

The Zodiacal symbol for Cancer is the Crab. Cancer is the Cardinal Water sign. Water signs are emotional, intuitive, sensitive, and responsive. Cardinal signs are proactive and initiating. They deal with life's problems by taking action to change circumstances ... and create new conditions. Cancer natives combine these qualities into characters that are compassionate and caring.

The other Cardinal Signs are Aries, Capricorn, and Libra. The natural style these signs take in their approach to life can bring challenges to their relationships with Cancer. The other Water signs are Scorpio and Pisces. Common values and similar preferences in habits and ambitions help these signs find an easier, more natural compatibility with Cancer.

Compatible with Cancer

Traditionally Cancer is compatible with Scorpio and Pisces, other Cancers, Taurus, and Virgo. Taurus and Virgo bring supportive and complementary qualities that can enhance their relationship with Cancer.

On the other hand, a match between Cancer and Aries or Cancer and Libra carries special challenges ... and a relationship between Cancer and Capricorn will require well-defined "territories" for each ... and a constant willingness to compromise on many issues, for these two signs often subscribe to different values. As you can see, Cancer / Capricorn relationships can be kind of a mixed blessing.

Physically, Cancer rules the stomach and digestive system. The ruling planet of Cancer is the Moon. Cancer is associated with the color silver. The starstone (not the birthstone) assigned to Cancer is the pearl.
