I'm not the typical Capricorn who will endure, persist and keep on to achieve long-term goals -- too momentary, too eager, too sensible.. Just the opposite of the success-oriented Capricorn, a Cancer relies on his personal motivation, social relationships and inner powers to achieve his goals. Friends, both old and new, are his best assets, and they prove useful in the long run of life. Endowed with a dreamy nature, Cancer the Crab dreams the most astonishing, awe-inspiring, out-of-reach dreams; which may act as a double-edged blade upon his motivation : they might push him to reach even deeper into his powers to get one step closer to his dreams, empower him even more, or, by showing pictures of his desired life on and off, drive him into chronic depression, put him in a void space between his feelings and his desires -- his tunnel-reality and his aspirations.
The luckier a crab can get with this sinusoidal aspect of his astro sign is by having an ascendant sign that will act as a regulator for the major ups and downs of his ruling sun sign. Having a hardbrainer like Capricorn or neutralizer like Libra as the ascendant would help a lot, the latter fortunately being the case with me.
Still, I'm one of those crabs and I got a lot of friends. But is that enough? No, not really.
