As a sign of the water, like Scorpio and Pisces, these signs listen above all to their feelings. Before they dive into something they’ll need to feel completely secure. They are generally very understanding, are able to share your pain and even that of those around the world.
Under the influence of the moon the Cancer can appear a little strange to those who are used to someone more direct.
However, those born a Cancer are not manipulative, they just need to get to know you in order to not feel rejected. The moon bestows upon a Cancer a predisposition for physical aptitude and this they can develop throughout their lives if they so wish.
The symbol of the Cancer is the crab. Those with this star sign can be known to take things to heart which makes them difficult to understand. You must have patience with a Cancer and allow them to discover themselves. They like to take things at their own pace and you’ll have to fight the urge to hurry them up and interrupt them. This is an error you don’t want to make unless you want to risk seeing them going back into their shell.

Difficulties often arise when a Cancer tries to take everyone’s problems under their wing. Compassion is one thing but to lose yourself completely to someone else’s problems is another. A Cancer must try to balance the tasks they take on in order to help themselves and those around them. Having water in close proximity can help a cancer to feel at ease and allows them to free themselves from unnecessary troubles in the past (which they can be prone to holding on to).
