Characteristics of Cancer 

Cancer’s have a need to be nurturing and develop emotional security.  Like a Crab walking sideways, you do not like direct confrontation.

Your sense of humor is often pointed to things others don’t find humorous.Your good memory and sharp intuition enables you to size someone up, making you a hard person to deceive.

You are generally sympathetic and kind, a patient listener who gives good advise. With a sentimental, considerate and gentle nature, you make sacrifices for those who need help.

People easily feel safe around you.  Due to your caring and maternal side you instinctively know what people need.  Others often gravitate towards you knowing you will understand.

You love to have a comfortable home with well stocked cupboards so you can entertain and have a home body side that loves to sit back and relax, entertain or cuddle in front of the fireplace.

You usually have a keen interest for older things like antiques etc, with a good eye for shopping for bargains for such things.

You believe in true friendship  and will not consider using someone to your own benefit as well as being known to be giving, dependable and reliable.  However you cannot stand broken promises, disloyalty and don’t shine to those who are selfish or incapable of giving in return.

Trust is of a primary importance to you.

You can also have a tendency to hang on to old hurts and sulk. At these times you often become clingy, insecure, live in the past and become cranky, missing opportunities when you are not in the mood to take action.

At times you can come across as smothering and over-protective to those around you.
