So You're a Cancer

Updated on August 8, 2012



Cacer people are sensitive (often over-sensitive), romantic, warm, gentle, considerate, protective (often over-protective) and home-loving. They are good at listening to other people's problems, but have a tendency to become over involved. If they do not maintain a certain distance they can become 'swamped' by others emotions and problems. They also tend to hug their problems to themselves, which can make them introspective. They often brood over their mistakes for far too long. Cancer people may have strong shoulders, but they are very sensitive, and are easily hurt by a harsh word. They may have an exaggerated sense of fair play, and can over-react if they feel they are unjustly criticised. On the other hand, they are tenacious (stubborn, sometimes) and very protective, especially of those who are dependent on them. Cancer is ruled by the Moon and they are water signs, so highly emotional

      I am a cancer and I agree with the personality traits. But LISTEN fellow cancer people, though we can be sensitive and feel hurt easil, we can work on that lol.. I use to be extremely sensitive but with practice I have worked past that, now I am just a cancer with all the good nurturing caring characteristics. : ) Thanks for sharing your article.

      I like Cancer folks and admire their family loyalty. If there is one negative trait I have noticed most of them share is a tendency to dwell on sickness and physical discomfort, and sometimes to the point of being whiners. But generally really nice people.
