I am SO a Cancer!!

This is really ON a lot, I made bold the things that are so me! And put little parenthesis for some comments.


June 22 - July 22

Cancer, the fourth Sign of the Zodiac, is all about home. Those born under this Sign are 'roots' kinds of people and take great pleasure in the comforts of home and family. Cancers are maternal, domestic and love to nurture others. More than likely, their family will be large, too -- the more, the merrier! Cancers will certainly be merry if their home life is serene and harmonious. Traditions are upheld (like how I won't let them change Christmas traditions, wow) with great zest in a Cancer's household, since these folks prize family history (holy crap!) and love communal activities. They also tend to be patriotic (hello born of the Fourth of July guys!), waving the flag whenever possible. A Cancer's good memory (go on quiz me on movies or tv I dare ya!) is the basis for stories told around the dinner table, and don't be surprised if these folks get emotional about things. (*sniffle* what?) Those born under this Sign wear their heart on their sleeve, which is just fine by them. (Not fine by me, but I can't seem to help it!)

Cancerians are quick to retreat into their shells if it suits their mood. No wonder these folks are called crabby! For Cancer, it's not that big of a deal, though, since they consider this 'shell' a second home (and they do love home). The flip side of this hiding is that shell-bound Crabs are often quite moody (yeah I will admit it). Further, in keeping with their difficulty in sharing their innermost feelings (aha I have an excuse now I am meant to be like this!), it can become a Herculean task to pry a Crab out of its secret hiding place. What to do? Give the Crab time -- eventually these folks will come out to play again. When they do, they'll be the first to say so, in keeping with the Cardinal Quality attached to this Sign. It's said that Crabs are first to laugh and first to cry (so true!), so you can bet they'll fill you in. That shell, by the way, isn't the only tough thing about Crabs. These folks are tenacious and strong-willed and like to get their way. (I admit it is true, I LIKE my way) If their well-documented kindness and gentleness doesn't do the trick, however, they're not above using emotional manipulation to make things happen. (no way!) If that still doesn't work, they'll just go back to their shell and sulk, or find a way to get back at the source of their pain, since Crabs can be rather vindictive. That said, any self-respecting Crab would tell you that they are ultimately motivated by protecting their home and loved ones, a most noble goal.

Cancerians have a retentive memory, particularly for emotionally laden events which they can recall in detail for years afterwards. (not the best thing either in some cases) they are strongly governed by childhood memories and since they live intensely in the past in memory and in the future in imagination, a chance meeting with someone for whom they had an unrequited love, even if they thought they had conquered the feeling, will easily rouse the emotion all over again.

The name Cancer is derived from Latin, literally meaning 'the crab'. Cancer has the characteristics of dreaminess (I am such a daydreamer!) , intuition, emotion and need for a safe retreat. Also known as the Sign of the Prophet or Teacher, Cancer is Negative in polarity. They also have a certain degree of spirituality. They have excellent memory retention skills. Cancerians are kind, sensitive and compassionate. ( I think I am) They are very domestic and love fortifying their home environment to their own satisfaction.

The Cancer character: Cancerians are like an emotional pressure cooker without a valve. (ooh I like that analogy!) They get so stressed-out that their normally shy behaviour can turn on others like a sudden earthquake. They worry to the point of paranoia and feel that everyone either uses them or ignores them. Most have an Oedipus complex. They also love to moan about everyone and enjoy gloating when someone's done better in life than you have. They employ cunning tricks to get what they want. Cancerians make useless psychologists but are excellent patients. (excellent patients? HA! Ask my former therapists!) They are better off not having a career. ( That was why I always thought I'd be a Mom, a career never really interested me more than that).

Such people are easily hurt by the slights of others. These are very complex people, sometimes appearing extremely strong and at other times to be as vulnerable as a child. (I do feel like that)

These people are remarkably good at accumulating things; indeed, they can be unwilling to throw anything out ( I AM a pack rat), even relationships that have passed their use-by date. They are generally over-anxious in financial matters, and make great efforts to gather in money; as a rule, they have unusual ups and downs in their early life and so they are compelled to work to keep ahead, but once they get on their feet they keep there. If channeled in the right direction, their enormous sensitivity can become a great source of strength. Once they overcome their touchiness and master their turbulent emotions, their intellect and imagination enable them to become a success in almost anything they undertake.

The main problem for them is to remember not to let the powerful, turbulent emotions of the moment crowd out their normally rational judgment. Their intuitions are reliable and should be trusted.

They are generally gifted with strong imaginations, and it is very easy for them to become excellent artists, writers, (woot!) composers, or musicians. At heart they are romantics and of a very loving and affectionate disposition.

On the other hand these people are perhaps the most sensitive natures from any other class of people and if aren’t recognized they quickly give up or get depressed and melancholy. Above all, they require encouragement and appreciation. Their deep sensitivity presents them with valuable and illuminating intuitions, especially regarding those they care for.

They often make excellent psychics, and usually have a yearning after the mysterious.
(Dude I am so interested in occult and magical things. I have seen lots of books on Wicca and faeries, etc that I woud love to seriosuly look through!)

They should never marry young, for their nature seems to change at different stages of life.

People born in this part of the year often reach very high exalted positions. In their home lives, however, they usually go through a great deal of trouble, and are seldom surrounded by happiness (aha!!), no matter how successful they may appear in the eye of the world.

Such people have deep love for what they call "their own people," for family customs and for tradition.
Cancer - The Sign of the Crab
The people born under the sign of cancer are very timid and are afraid of refusal more, than all other marks even summarized together. However, they are ambitious . Their way to success is similar with their symbol Cancer. They advance slow towards their aim, and then at the most unexpected moment they grasp the victim and just like a cancer strong holding it and do not let off. The moon operates the woman, and the men - cancer are not very aggressive in love . However, they create an attractive facade of naivety, that compels the woman to make the first step.

People who were born in this sign are the ones to whom others turn with problems, worries and life choice concerns. Despite their ability to support and nurture their pals, it is pretty difficult for them to make friends. This may be because they take friendship seriously and don't bother to indulge superficial associations. (This is so true I don't take friendship lightly at all, it is very serious!) Their affections or friendships last longest with those who are born in their own period, June 21 to July 20-27, or from October 21 to November 20-27, or from February J9 to March 20-27.

They are chiefly inclined towards gastric troubles, (geez louise I have sich tummy problems!) and they must be extremely careful in regard to shellfish and such things. Inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatism, are also likely to attack them, and trouble with the legs and feet. (Diabetic!) Physical fitness or sports activities can become important ways for you to work out emotional stress. Team sports are fun, for them can adopt team members as part of an extended family.

The colors most in harmony for them are all shades of green, (one of my fave colors) and cream and white.

Cancer has a deep inferiority complex, any hurt (both real and imagined), is brooded upon at length. ( I do feel inferior sad truth) Cancerians tend to look back at, and hold on to things from the past, they can be very possessive. They are inherently conservative in their outlook, but this does not get in the way of initiating change where they deem necessary.
over emotional, hypersensitive, moody, devious, changeable, self-pitying, unforgiving, unstable, gullible, untidy. (this I don't think is me)

Gastric disorders, heartburn, indigestion, obesity, ulcers.

Cancer Personality Profile
You will always find this loving person with a dear pet (Maxie!!) of some sort.

A few negatives:
Can be seen as selfish, rash and quick tempered. Sometimes coming across as quarrelsome and aggressive. Often emotional and highly sensitive. May show impatience at times, while also having a devious side. Is self pitying with an unforgiving and possessive tendency.
Cancer is very protective.
Cancer people are very protective and sympathetic to those around them. They are very capable of "feeling your pain" whether it be physical, financial or emotional. They will help out to, as long as it is clear they are not being taken advantage of.
When they are shining Cancer is sensitive and caring, kind and sympathetic, they have an urge to care for and nurture people. ( I think this is why I feel mom-like) This trait expresses itself particularly well with things concerning the family and home life. This can be considered the "softer" side of the Cancer personality. However lurking in the shadows is the hard side, which can be enterprising.
The Cancerian person tends to be kind and caring individuals with a natural sense to nurture and care for others, especially their loved ones. They are very protective and can be quite defensive at times. They may be emotional and sentimental often seeming to be extremely touchy. Cancerians make some of the best students and can learn most anything that they set their minds to.

Cancer Health Concerns
This zodiac sign having the tough outer shell of the crab also has it’s soft belly. Even though they may seem cool and in control on the surface, they quite often are prone to emotional disruptions. While desiring the feeling of security, uncertainty in life may cause the agitation, which in turn makes them susceptible to gastric problems.

Heartburn, gastric disorders and obesity (geez did they google me?!) are of major concern to the Cancerian. Although they are supportive of others close to them, they usually suffer in silence as they are not ones who communicate freely.
Water retention is also common among Cancerians. They should avoid high fat foods and learn to talk openly about things that bother them as to avoid any chances of stomach ulcers. Watch food intake as Canerians are often the greatest of worriers, which may in turn lead to overeating and an expanding waistline.

Cancerians sometimes experience trouble deciding between the ambitious, tough and outgoing side of their nature and the somewhat sensitive, inward looking part of themselves. This can cause inner conflict and mood swings, making it almost impossible for others to assess how they will react to a given situation.

Here are some interesting Cancer facts:
· * Ruled by the Moon
* Primary color is silver
* Birthstone is Pearl and Moonstone
* Lucky day is Friday
* Lucky numbers are 8 and 3
* Best location for success is: near or on water

The Cancer Sun Sign - Zodiac Sign Information
Cancer is the forth zodiac sign. Cancer represents the crab sent by the goddess Hera. According to Greek Mythology it gives lasting fame to the crab as it was sent to combat Hercules, Hera’s old enemy. As Hercules himself was embattled in his second series of the “Twelve Labors” with the destruction of the nine headed serpent “Hydra”. During the battle the crab was said to have nipped at Hercules’ ankles but was in turn crushed under foot. As the crabs reward Hera is said to have raised it to the heavens.

Well how interesting, it is weird really. Anyone should do this it is really fun, and if anyone has trouble finding something on them tell me and I will email you some stuff on your sign! ((HUGS))

I'm a Leo. I don't seem to be overly typical for the Leos though. Some say that my Leoine tendencies are modified by my eastern sign (which is a chicken) and my rising and moon signs (which, depending on where you look, are either a Taurus or an some cases one of each due to the birth time).

Seems like I stumbled over to your blog just right to find out about you properly. ;)

I'm a Scorpio. Most of the traits fit, I think. At least, if I remember rightly from the last time I read a Scorpio profile. ;)

Will look up one later and post it on my blog some time soon, then we can see what fits and what doesn't. :)

Jillene said...

Wow--that's cool. I am a Scorpio. It pretty much fits me to a "T".

Sheri said...

How fun! I'm a Leo but am a mixture of that and a Virgo (I'm born on the end dates of Leo I think). Where did you get all of that info?

Lee said...

Well hey there mama, I'm a cancer too. *high-fives*
Don't like the whole "don't marry young" thing.
I want to marry young enough that I look adorable in my dress.
