Of all the zodiac signs, Cancers are the ones - men or women - who are most likely to take a motherly interest in the people around them. If you have a problem, they'll take care of it. If you have the flu, they'll bring you chicken soup. And if you work your way into their confidence, chances are you'll have a friend for life.
Cancers, born between June 22 and July 22, are represented in animal form by the crab. At times, they can indeed be crabby, but that's because they treasure their privacy. They can be moody because they also tend to absorb the emotions of those around them. That's why their homes are their sanctuaries, and they love everything related to hearth and home - cooking, decorating and making crafts.
If you become romantically involved with a Cancer, make it a priority to be a caretaker and a good listener. Because Cancers take care of other people's problems, they need someone who can be attentive when their own difficulties bubble to the surface. Try to overlook their oversensitivity, moodiness and occasional self-pity. Instead, focus on their strongest attributes - loyalty, dependability, responsiveness and caring nature.
Rely On A Cancer's Intuition
In spite of their inclination to retreat to places where they feel at home, Cancers are often quite successful in their careers. They have qualities - perseverance, intelligence, strong powers of observation - that translate very well in business and other professions in which the ability to "read" people and use their excellent memory skills are put to work.
Often, Cancers make the best psychics because of their strong intuitive powers. Whether they're doing live psychic readings over the phone or through the Internet, they'll tap into the recipient's problems thoroughly and come up with solutions that will make his or her life better.
Financial well-being is important to Cancers, and this often is a driving force behind their successful endeavors. Putting their intuitive ability to work allows them to decipher trends, which is a very valuable talent in the business world.
In addition to their delight with material possessions, Cancer people can be possessive in their relationships. For every time when your Cancer friends are showing their self-sufficient side, there will be times when they'll need your unqualified attention. If you're patient with this aspect of your friendship with a Cancer, it will be rewarded with their trust and help when you need them most.
