Those born between June 21 – July 22 fall into this zodiac. Cancer is the fourth zodiac sign represented by the symbol of the crab. It is a cardinal water sign with a receptive duality, and it is ruled by the moon (the ruler of emotions). Just like water, a Cancerian has depths and is famous for his/her intuition. Cancerians have a hard shell and may seem standoffish or arrogant at first, but it is just a shield to protect themselves from the world, and just like a crab they are tender inside. Once a Cancerian decides to become your friend, the friendship stays lifelong. Apart from that Cancerians are known to be creative, emotionally intelligent, Tenacious, highly imaginative, loyal, emotional, sympathetic, and persuasive.

Depending on the birth chart, Cancers might go well with Air signs which include Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, and Fire signs which include Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.

Apart from that “a lady on streets and freak in sheets “is the phrase that perfectly describes a Cancerian. Plus, imagination here acts like a cherry on top of the cake. So, do not be shocked when you see that shy cover fading away and bold and creative moves start coming your way. Even though this zodiac sign has a lot of qualities perfect for an amazing life partner, Cancerians have some bad qualities as well. Cancerians are known to be moody, overly emotional, pessimistic, insecure, controlling, manipulative and suspicious. That is why Cancerians are also known as crybabies. So, do not be shocked when you get a cranky baby after you forget to tell your partner that you still love them.

There is a huge difference between a Cancer man and a Cancer woman. A Cancer man is family oriented, very sensitive and protective, attractive and mysterious in nature, honest, and calm with the ones they love. Whereas a Cancer woman is known to be highly intuitive, angry, bold, honest, and needs a lot of time to trust others. Both Cancer women and men tend to get defensive when they feel like their emotions are being made fun of and they are not valued.

Cancerians are known for their moody nature. Any harsh comment can hurt a Cancerian easily and make them go back and hide in their shell. Cancers can easily change the vibe of the room they stand in. So, if your Cancer had a bad day do not expect them to be the chirpy, social, and loving Cancer that they are, and get ready to handle a cranky baby and tantrums.

Cancer values commitment, loyalty, and security in a relationship. You might find your partner asking questions like “Do you love me?” constantly. This might be annoying for their partner. If your Cancer partner is asking such questions, higher are the chances they were being hurt in the past. But once they fully trust you and come out of their shell, they would not ask these questions again.

If you have had bad relationships, then dating a Cancer would prove to you that true love exists. These folks do anything to make their lover happy. And a Cancerian is known for its loyalty and dedication. They offer security and devotion in relationships and cheating is an entirely foreign concept for a Cancerian.

Mentioned above are the 4 things that you need to watch out for when you are dating a Cancer. But it is always advised to seek professional advice. As, apart from the sun sign, the personality of a Cancerian can also be influenced by the Rising and Moon signs. For example: If you have a partner whose sun is in Cancer, Rising is in Leo and Moon is in Sagittarius higher are the chances they would not be that emotional. Instead, they will possess some qualities of fire signs. And the same goes with any other Sun or Moon placement.
