The zodiac sign Cancer (Latin for crab) is the fourth sign of the zodiac, whose ruler is the Moon. Cancer is female and is associated with the element of water.

The Cancer - Mysterious and Sensitive

The mysterious Cancer is a very emotional and sociable sign of the zodiac. Despite their hard shell, which they acquired to protect themselves from an injury in their childhood, the zodiac sign Cancer has a very soft and sensitive core. Even though it may not seem like this at first glance, the Cancer has very strong inner powers that make them incredibly tough and strong-willed. 

They firmly believes that over time, the soft water will wear down the hard rock, until nothing but sand remains. Thus, the emphatic Cancer is very patient and consistent. In fact, it's not their style to rush things, they trust their gut to make difficult decisions.

Ebb and Flow

Just as the moon forces the sea to ebb and flow, its ruler planet causes the Cancer to fluctuate in mood. One day, they are bursting with joy, the next day it's better not to speak to them at all. 

Usually, this is something that all Cancers struggle with. One reason for this is that the crustacean is both a land dweller and an aquatic dweller. They have a stronger urge to their feelings, which the water symbolizes, but they also worry about their fellow men and their life situation (country). 

Thus, safety and security are a basic need for them. They avoid danger and are rather afraid of risks. The topic of partnership and family take a high priority with Cancer-born people.
