The season for our loyal, loving Cancer friends officially began last June 21. So, get ready to soak in the self-care slash maternal energies until July 22!
Cancer is the fourth astrological sign in the Zodiac circle represented by the crab. Ruled by the moon, this oceanic crustacean effortlessly weaves between the sea and shore, representing Cancer natives’ ability to exist in both emotional and material realms. Like their celestial spirit animal, Cancer is protected by hard, external shells translating to their extremely self-preservative nature. Typically, crabs are known for their cold, distant behaviour. However, with time, Cancer-born reveals their gentle nature, genuine compassion, and mystical capabilities (Allure, 2021).
Alongside Scorpio and Pisces, Cancer is a cardinal water sign that tends to blur the lines between attentive nurturing and controlling behaviour when they invest too much emotion in someone. On the other hand, they gain friends and attract potential lovers through loyalty, commitment, and emotional understanding.
So if you’re looking for loyal companions that will always have your back, look for a Cancer!
