Cancer - “I Feel”
June 21 - July 22


 
No sign is as misunderstood as Cancer. With a tendency to be emotional and sensitive, Cancer feels things deeply. Like the symbol of the Crab, they retreat into protection mode if they feel threatened or hurt. Because of their ability to shift directions at a moment’s notice, Cancer is fascinating, alluring and creates an aura of mystique. Like the moon that rules the sign, Cancer changes quickly but the sensitive nature of the Cancer soul can mesmerize with beauty.
