Cancer, the most empathetic sign is symbolized by the Crab.
Ruled by Moon, this is the fourth Zodiac Signs that lasts from
June 22nd to July 22nd and is called 'Karka' in Hindi.
They are deeply emotional and intuitive. The top concern for them is their family.
People born under this sign are unduly sensitive and are more concerned with
expressing emotions than getting involved in superficial conversations.
They can be moody, drawing into the protective shell if things around them
get too intense.
They appreciate art, literature, and especially drama, where the flow of action
and feelings particularly excite them. They may themselves possess considerable
literary and artistic bent of mind. Cancerians have a retentive memory,
particularly for emotionally laden events which they can recall in detail
for years afterward.
Cancerians are not easy to understand, for their moods often fluctuates
from sweet to cranky. They can be untidy, sulky, devious, moody, and
inclined to self-pity because of an inferiority complex. A typical Cancerian
broods on insults. They also tend to change their opinions and, indeed,
their occupations, and lack stability. Cancer people are apt to do the
opposite from what they are advised to do.
Cancer rules the stomach, diaphragm, peristalsis, the pancreas, gastric vein,
upper lobes of the liver, thoracic duct, chymification, and the serum of
the blood. The afflictions which may be classed under the sign of Cancer
are dropsy, indigestion, and sclerosis. Cancer people are very fond of
food and are usually hearty eaters.
They can be good journalists, writers or politicians, though in this last capacity
they are more likely to remain in the background rather than attain prominent
positions of power.
Cancerians seek steady, stable and practical partners, and usually bond best with
Scorpio and Capricorn.
