The Cancer Woman - All About You !



If you’re a woman whose birthday is between June 22nd and July 23rd your Star Sign is Cancer, which means you were born when the Sun was in the sector of the Zodiac associated with that sign.


Zodiac Symbol: the Crab.
Element: WATER (emotional, sensitive, intuitive).
Quality: CARDINAL (motivated, proactive, dynamic).
Ruling Planet: THE MOON (the planet of needs and feelings).


Sympathetic, nurturing, supportive, and very aware of the emotional needs of others, you are an exceptionally sensitive and caring kind of woman. Because your maternal nature is highly developed, you get a lot of satisfaction out of nurturing and protecting those around you. As a woman born under the Star Sign Cancer, you tend to worry a lot about the ones you love.

If you're a typical Cancer woman, you have powerful emotional attachments to your family, your childhood, and those things you associate with safety and security. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, you tend to cling to whatever is dear to you, be it person, familiar place, or cherished possession. Maintaining a connection with your roots and heritage and keeping family bonds strong are very important to you. With a very deep need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, you center much of your life around your home.

If you become estranged from your family for any reason, it’s likely to have a devastating effect on you. As a Cancer woman, your relationship with your mother is especially important to you: if she fails to fully support you, your confidence in yourself as a woman would be severely undermined.

Because you're a woman born under the Star Sign Cancer, having a place to call your own and giving birth to your own children are potentially your greatest sources of fulfillment in life. A talented home-maker, warm-hearted host (and probably also a good cook), you’re generous in opening your doors to your friends and neighbors and taking those in need under your wing.

Your compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are your strong points. In common with most Cancer women, your faults may include a difficulty in releasing the past and going forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency to be self-pitying when you meet hardships in life.


Being a Cancer woman means you relate easily to others’ emotions and readily empathize with their cares and troubles. But even better, you’re prepared to turn your sympathy into concrete action by pitching in to help them in whatever way you can. Because of your kindness, empathy and hands-on caring, your partner and friends often depend upon you for support.

Since, as a Cancer woman, you are primarily emotional, your views are frequently dominated by your feelings and by your own subjective experiences, rather than reason and logic. As a result it can be difficult for you to judge situations in a fair, objective manner. You have a habit of taking things very personally, and sometimes build a wall around yourself to protect yourself from pain and rejection.

Rather shy and vulnerable at heart, as a Cancer woman you also tend to be rather moody, experiencing frequent emotional ups and downs which can be hard for others to understand. In your close relationships you need time and space in your life to withdraw, dream, and immerse yourself in creative activities where you can express your feelings, imagination, and instincts; otherwise you become cranky and unhappy with those around you.
