    Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac, which the Sun transits during the first month of summer, from about June 21st to about July 22nd. The symbol for this sign is The Crab; its polarity is negative; its element is water; its quality is cardinal; its cosmic ruler is the Moon; and on the human anatomy Cancer rules the breast and the stomach...

    In Cancer the activity of cardinality, the emotionality of water, and the instability of the Moon combine to produce a paradoxical individual whose extreme sensitivity does not always show on the surface. Like the crab that is their symbol, Cancer people develop a tough outer shell in order to protect the vulnerability within. This shell may be their home, a place they can retreat to – full of familiar treasures they have collected to console their psyche in an alien world. It may also be a system of psychological defenses they have created in order to avoid pain.

    Also like the crab, Cancers will move sideways to avoid a confrontation, but when attacked, they will hang on tenaciously. The crab will actually risk losing a claw before it releases its prey!

    The Moon rules infancy and motherhood, and Cancer people – who include not only Sun-sign Cancers, but all in whose horoscopes the sign is emphasized – remain deeply connected to the early part of their lives, even though it may not have been especially tranquil. As infants they are given to inexplicable crying spurts, and they seem more subject to visceral discomfort than any other infants. Cancer children are famous for their protective attitude toward younger siblings and their worried concern for the well being of every family member, and, as they grow older, this innate maternal quality becomes more conspicuous.

    Even adult Cancers are deeply connected to their mothers. They crave the total intimacy of the baby at the breast, and since no adult relationship can re-create the perfect fulfillment of those moments, they may often feel unsatisfied. They may hold on to old hurts and resentments simply out of fear of the unknown. And yet in their very sensitivity there is a great source of strength.

    Once Cancer people can overcome their preoccupation with themselves – their shyness, their passivity – and can learn to master their turbulent moods, there is almost nothing they cannot accomplish. With their gifts of imagination, intuition, insight, profound retentiveness, and their ability to get in touch with their inner experience, they can reverse the tide of negativity and adversity, and turn suffering into success.

    Because relationships are so important to them, Cancers in love can be both demanding and generous. They are passionate and possessive, sometimes holding on to a relationship long after it has proved unrewarding. Since Cancers like to perpetuate the mother/child bond, they often pick partners they can mother or whom they can look up to as a parent-figure, or, better yet, partners with whom they can alternate between the two roles – playing the child today and the mother tomorrow, as the mood strikes them.

    Their sensitivity to others' moods is a two-edged sword, however, making them both impossibly touchy and wonderfully sympathetic. But Cancers will atone for their moodiness by their loyalty to their mates, and will make their home and family the center of their life. The kitchen is their natural domain, for they love to eat and are the best cooks in the world!...

    Cancers’ most compatible signs are: Scorpio, Taurus, Pisces and Virgo;
    Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius and Aquarius are neutral; Aries and Libra are likely to be difficult. With Capricorn, their polar opposite and complementary sign, there is both attraction and tension. And with another Cancer there may well be too much water – and someone might drown! But in all cases the success of the relationship will depend on how the two horoscopes interact, and not on the compatibility of the Sun-signs alone...

    With their acute perception, psychic ability, and profound sense of memory, those born under this cardinal water sign can succeed in many professions, but they are at their best in activities where they can express their imagination and their need to nurture.

    Cancer is associated with such diverse fields as homemaking, advertising, interior decorating, antique collecting, cooking, counseling, nursing, teaching, editing, writing, and the arts. Contrary to popular opinion, Cancers can be very successful at business, for they are cautious and conservative, with keen interest in changing public tastes and trends.

    The colors of Cancer are deep orange and yellow; its birthstones are the pearl and the moonstone; and its day of the week is Monday, which is ruled by the Moon.

    The following are some prominent African-Americans born under the sign Cancer:

    Arthur Ashe, Ed Bradley, Georg Stanford Brown, Diahann Carroll, Bill Cosby, Andre Crouch, former NYC mayor David Dinkins, Billy Eckstine, Richard Hatcher, Valerie Briscoe-Hooks, Lena Horne, Phyllis Hyman, Lisa Leslie, Carl Lewis, Nelson Mandela, Justice Thurgood Marshall, Dikembe Mutombo, Brock Peters, Della Reese, Wilma Rudolph, O.J. Simpson, Carl Stokes, Justice Clarence Thomas, Kwame Toure, and Mike Tyson...

    African-Americans are closely associated to the signs Cancer - due to our African origins - and Pisces...

    Cancer, the sign of birth, rules tribes and closely-knit family groups. It also denotes a very sensitive and emotional people...

    Pisces is the sign of service - of taking on the burdens of others and losing one's sense of individuality as a result. Pisces is also the sign of redemption through suffering; the sign of musical inspiration, dance, and the theatre arts...

    Pisces is the sign of tremendous faith, while Cancer is the sign of the soul. The relationship between the signs Cancer and Pisces is very strong in the astrological lineage of Black people the world over...

    The ancient Chaldean, Abyssinian and Egyptian priest/astrologers named the sky above them "Cancer," or "scarab" at the Summer Solstice, which marks the Sun's highest point in the Heavens from the celestial equator on the 21st of June, when the Sun's celestial longitude is 0 degrees Cancer in the Heavens. Symbolically, this point in the Heavens was known as the "Gate of Men," through which souls descend from the Heavens into human bodies. All people with African ancestral roots are under the signs Cancer and Pisces...

    Those born under this sign make excellent teachers, for they realize that the best part of knowledge is to know one's own ignorance. As a rule, no other teacher is more qualified to instill knowledge into the minds of children than a Cancer female. However, in matters of discipline she is often lax, and her pupils tend to take advantage of her...

    Astrological research shows that more millionaires are born under the sign Cancer than any other sign in the zodiac. Texas billionare H. Ross Perot (6/27/'30) is a TRIPLE Cancer! His Sun, Moon and Ascendant are in this sign, thus it's his nature to accumulate substance and amass resources. And he uses his "crab's claw" to hang on to his money...

    Cancers on the Internet...

    The Cancer native will shuttle back and forth over the idea of the Internet before actually dipping into the web's vast ocean. Once they are in this enormous matrix, it is hard to get the Moonchild back to terra firma!

    The need to roam slowly and ploddingly - like the crab (Cancer's symbol) on the bottom of the ocean floor - is there, but returning to the safety of their own home is comforting to Cancers. The marvelous thing about the Internet for Cancer is that it is right there in one's home that so much entertainment can take place.

    On the Internet Cancers can visit or view an intriguing potential vacation spot that is off the beaten path, checking out all the different ticketing websites to get the very best price.

    The Moonchild has a strong love of family, home, and gentle nurturing. Cancer is one of those souls that can get lost at auction websites looking for sentimental treasures to hold and then give away to cherished loved ones. When Cancer sees the the glow of happiness that these little surprises bring, Cancer reflects back the joy.

    Food is always a big concern with the Cancer native, and he/she will want to have exotic tidbits in the kitchen for family and dear friends to nibble on. These delicacies will then be prepared lovingly by hand, and this sign will know where to go on the Internet to learn the art of food preparation and presentation. Here are a few websites that will aid this Cancerian desire:

    www.vegetariantimes.com
    www.epicurious.com/
    http://www.dealtime.com/
    http://www.travelocity.com
    www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/

    Because Cancer is ruled by the Moon, the cosmic ruler of females, men born under this sign have on-going problems with women. For example, O.J. Simpson, Clarence Thomas (remember Anita Hill?), Mike Tyson, Geraldo Rivera, Nelson Mandela and Bill Cosby...

    CANCER (June 22-July 23) has as its non-human symbol that crustacean of the sea, the slow-moving crab. The crab carries its home on its back and is therefore never far from it. Cancers love their homes and are happiest when they are comfortably settled in for the night. Home, mother, the hearth, food—these are some of this emotional sign's values, for Cancer is insecure in some ways and the home is the protective shell that Cancer retreats to when the world and all its harshness are just too overwhelming. Cancer is the sign of the emotions, for like the tides of the ocean, this sign swells with highs and lows of emotional pulse. Cancer's lifelong search is for security, emotional and otherwise. Just as the crab might clamp its pincers to your toe and not let go, natives of this sign cling to people in their lives. Cancers are emotional, protective, nurturing, and affectionate—but they respond to life through their feelings. "I feel," is Cancer's song.

    Keywords: Sensitive, nurturing, tenacious, protective, emotional, intuitive, caring, moody, dependent, absorptive, domestic, maternal, enveloping, sheltering.

    Rules: the breast(s) and stomach.

    Key phrase: I feel.
