Know more about your Sign-Cancer

There are a total of twelve different zodiac signs, each of which divide the sky into roughly 30 degree segments. Each one of the twelve signs holds unique and fascinating properties which influence on our lives in different ways. While people typically refer to each one of these signs as their "sign", the correct term is "sun sign" - which is the constellation through which our sun was moving on the day we were born. While our sun signs are indeed very important parts of our astrological profile, one should remember that they are only generalizations.

Cancer Personality Profile:
Individuals born under the sun sign of Cancer exhibit a fearlessness combined with an extremely deep emotional wisdom. They not only know themselves and their own minds very well - but they frequently exhibit an adeptness in understanding the emotions of others. This emotional awareness makes Cancers great communicators. They are often artists, musicians, writers and thinkers - and typically have an innate ability to create a bond with whomever it is they are communicating with.

Cancers are typically full of energy, wit and creative ideas. Not content to walk the same path as everyone else around them - Cancers often look for new approaches, novel solutions and creative answers to life's every day problems. Cancers are often very adept at solving problems by applying their "people-skills" to a problem. Their natural understanding of human emotions make them particularly good at influencing others.

Cancers are very tenacious - particularly when defending themselves and those they care about.

Cancer at Work:
The hardy and industrious crab works well in a broad variety of environments. Cancers are not afraid of hard work, although the desire to do so will often "come in waves" - leading to sudden bouts of intense creative energy, followed by periods of lower productivity. Cancers' natural desire to seek creative solutions makes them excellent additions to any team - particularly in creative professions or in challenging workplaces where original solutions are required.

Cancer individuals are trustworthy and understanding. For the most part they do not take the lead - but rather are the creative genius behind the scenes which makes it all possible. Cancers are sometimes entrepreneurial, especially in areas of business which require original thinking or ideas.
Cancer in Love:
Individuals born under the sun-sign of Cancer are typically defensive people. Often they are hurt in early relationships, and as adults will put up strong walls and barriers to defend themselves. Break down these walls however, and Cancers will throw themselves into their relationships with enormous passion and emotion.

Cancer's gift of emotional intelligence and understanding is something of a double-edged sword in relationships: On the one hand Cancers are extremely good at emotional communication and empathic understanding - on the other hand however, Cancers can often be easily hurt or angered because they're emotional "radar" is much more finely tuned.
