My zodiac sign is Cancer. Here’s what I’ve been able to find out about Cancerians.

The following is taken from Explore Astrology

The fourth sign of the zodiac is Cancer (June 22nd-July 22nd) and it is represented by the crab. Appropriately enough, Cancerians can seem easygoing, sympathetic, and patient one minute, then cranky and irritable the next. Because of this ability to make a sudden change, Cancer is the least predictable of all signs.

Yep, I think everyone who knows me would agree with this!

They are ruled by the moon and have water as their element, so their mood swings can be compared to the turbulence of the shifting tides. If they feel they need to, they will retreat to their own emotional shell to keep others out. However, Cancerians can be very sympathetic to others and readily show their affection. Cancerians are also very emotional and sensitive, which may be why they are so empathetic towards others.

I love water. Our pond is my favourite part of the garden and I love seeing waterfalls and streams when visiting new places with Ant. 
I would agree about the mood swings and retreating into my shell. I am very sympathectic, emotional and sensitive.

Cancerians need a lot of attention due to their unpredictable character, but if you give them the support they need, they will offer you their undying loyalty and love (see our article Cancer in Love in this section). Once you have won their trust, nothing anyone else can say will sway them against you.

Yep, totally agree 🙂


Just like a crab, Cancerians are often known for sidestepping. They rarely take the direct approach to what they want, but eventually they get what they are after. Cancerians are better judged by what they do and not what they say. When asked to help, their first response might be no, but in the end, they always come through. They can often be hard on the outside, but soft on the inside. The hard shell they show to the world is only there to protect themselves from being hurt.

Cancer is also the sign of home and family life. They seek out relationships and are happiest when with those they love because it gives them a sense of security.

It’s true, I’m most happy when I’m at home with Ant, Aiden and the girls 🙂


Cancerians are very intuitive, almost to the point of being psychic. They are able to spot even the smallest change in another’s behaviour, so it is hard to deceive them. They are very insightful and most have a good memory. The combination of these two skills plus their excellent observation skills makes them very aware of the ulterior motives of others.

I don’t have a good memory, in fact, it’s absolutely terrible and I’m not very good at seeing ulterior motives. I always tend to look for the good and miss the bad.


Cancerians are often seen as moody, cranky, and unpredictable. Because of their sensitivity, they can be seen as over-emotional and touchy, almost to the point of being clingy. They tend to be possessive of those they have allowed in their world. Cancerians can shut people out if they feel uncomfortable and “going into their shell” is seen as being introverted.

Yep, yep and yep!

Parts of the Body Ruled by Cancer

The breasts and stomach – because they love to overeat, Cancerians may have to fight the battle of the bulge their entire lives. They are also prone to digestion problems that may be caused by stress or tension.

Cancerians may seem hard on the outside, but do not take that to heart. Once you get to know them, they can be very loving and insightful of your feelings. They love to be with family and their families love them despite their turbulent mood changes.

Couldn’t be more true! I’ve been overweight my whole life and I’m still battling my weight.
I do love being with my family, as I said above, and I think they all love being with me, even when I’m grumpy!


I’m taking part in #Blogtober16. It’s a post every day during October with a different prompt. Tomorrow is one of my favourite subjects…. favourite food, which shows the above is correct about Cancerians loving to eat!
