About Cancer

Cancer is the second of the Cardinal signs of the zodiac.

Cardinal signs are Aries Cancer Libra and Capricorn

Cardinal Houses are 1st 4th 7th and 10th house.

Cardinal Signs are the initiators of the Zodiac, the ones that get things done, though sometimes these do not always make it to the end.

Caridnal people are normally pushy, never slacking and have a zest for life. They have a lot of energy and can be domineering at times.

Cardinal people are always wanting to win and you will find most of them very clever and you will also find them self-centred at times.

Cancer belongs to the Water Element. You will find them to be intuitive and sensitive. They often feel things more deeply than others. They can be very emotional and nurturing and like a river they can run very deep. You will find that they will base everything sense rather than logical or intellect. You will also find that they can be very compassionate and understanding.

Cancer: Basic Information

Keywords: Emotional Loving Imaginative Shrews Cautious Changeable Moody Sensitivity

Basic Personality: The imagination is normally very strong and vivid, but when you combine that with their emotions this is not always the best of combinations. It can result in such things as worry, especially over loved ones.
The Cancerian mind is best to work instinctively, and if this is allowed this is when they make their best decisions.
The worst fault of Cancer is their moodiness, one moment they are on top of the world and the next they are down a deep black hole.
