The Personality of Cancer is very creative, nurturing, and sensitive to emotions. Being a water sign, they tend to have psychic abilities because of their deep connection to their emotions which inevitably helps them to detect when something is or isn’t right with others. The energy quality of Cancer is cardinal and can be seen as the Mother archetype who is always ready to protect their friends, family, community, and creations whenever a situation calls for it.
Like the crab, Cancer is very secretive and protective of its soft inner nature and can come off as combative. This tends to be the case because they are protecting their heart, which can be easily misused or manipulated if put into the wrong hands.
The symbol of Cancer is the Crab.
The two circles aiming to become one is an abstract depiction of the two claws of the crab and refers to the dual nature of Cancer, emphasizing the interconnectedness of the inner and outer world.

Sun in Cancer
Born: June 22- July 22
If you have your Sun in the sign of Cancer, you have a nurturing personality that is very protective. You tend to identify yourself as a person who is emotionally receptive to loved ones and encourage them to be with you when they are needing to be “real” and come clean to what they are going through internally. You are really gifted at reading body language and can detect what is going on with others underneath the obvious. Consequently, it is a challenge for others to lie to you, and you prefer honesty over flattery.
Moon in Cancer
If you have Moon in Cancer, the moon is very comfortable in this sign. Your emotions tend to wax and wane and mirror the actual Moon transiting through the twelve constellations. For you to feel emotionally secure, you need to be in an environment that is luxurious, comfortable and is receptive to your emotional needs. You may even have a mother that fits the Archetypal Mother who is sensitive to you emotionally and intuitively knows how to comfort you when need be.
In esoteric astrology, your moon sign is known as where your soul is held, therefore, your main struggle in life is the shadow of Cancer. Moon in Cancer may struggle with being self-absorbed, fanaticism, moodiness, being deceptive, fiery anger, and jealousy.
Whatever has happened to you in the past may have triggered these qualities and are now in your subconscious memory. When under stress, the shadow of Cancer tends to take over and create a disturbance for you emotionally and psychologically, but through mindfulness, it can be overcome. Once you are able to work with and surpass these hurdles, you can live a more purposeful life.
Use your emotions as a conduit for bringing people together and experience true love and understanding, you have this ability!
