Cancer dates and personality: June 21 to July 22

Family and home are two important elements for Cancer. As a water sign, like Scorpio and Pisces, these natives are ruled by their hearts instead of their heads. They need to feel fully secure before allowing themselves to be approached, and may take time to open up. They are generally very understanding beings, who are able to share their sorrows and feelings.

Under the influence of the Moon, these natives may seem a bit strange to some people who are used to more direct approaches. However, these folks are not cold or distant, they just need to get to know you before they place their trust in you. The Moon also gives them a predisposition to psychic abilities, which they can develop throughout their lives.

These natives can be slow to get to the heart of things, which makes them difficult to read. It will take patience and time to discover who they really are, as they weave their story at their own pace. However, that doesn't mean that they should be rushed into breaking down their barriers, because this might make them want to flee.

Difficulties can arise when Cancer tries to take on all the world's problems. Compassion is one thing, but being too devoted to a cause (or a person) is another.

What are Cancer's qualities? - These natives are affectionate and creative

Sensitivity is this sign's strongest character trait because they absorb people's emotions like a sponge. Their emotional world is very rich, and that is why you are undoubtedly endowed with a great sense of creativity. These folks are never short of inspiration, so they can express all the emotions that assail them all the time.

You are certainly one of a kind! As a loving, protective and generous person, everyone loves being around you. The Cancer personality is flexible and helpful, meaning you are easy to get along with and great at giving advice. Your family is your foundation, your pillar, and you'd do anything for the people you love. Affectionate and kind, you do everything to keep your loved ones united around you. Peaceful and respectful of everyone, people often note your openness. People's well-being is always at the center of your concerns, and you always make sure that peace remains in your home. 

You fear conflict, but won't back down from confrontation if it concerns your loved ones. You're not exactly tough, but you don't let anyone walk all over you. That being said, you hold grudges and do at times struggle to forgive. As a creative, intuitive and imaginative person, you are always totally dedicated to your tasks. As long as the atmosphere is peaceful and friendly, you'll take on the most difficult projects with a lot of heart.

The flaws linked to the Cancer personality - These folks are sensitive and stroppy

As you know, your sensitivity is what makes you so charming, but you have a tearful side that tends to irritate your loved ones. You can be sickly suspicious and moody, and that's what those around you have to deal with. It seems simply impossible to be frank with you, because no one wants to run the risk of having to deal with your endless sobbing or even your emotional blackmail. You have a hard time dealing with your emotions, but try to remember that those around you love you and are acting for your own good, not to hurt you. 

Capricious and very changeable, you are like a child who must always be reassured and satisfied. You love affection and often sulk as soon as someone lets you down. You don't look like it, but you always get your way. Even at work, the slightest annoyance fills you with bitterness. You need to stop dramatizing everything and instead relax! We know that your anxiety often pushes you to overreact, but you need to be cautious enough to stay safe from hard knocks.
