Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

All About Cancer, the Zodiac Sign of the Caring Crab Who Feels Everything Deeply

Sensitive Cancer is ruled by the ever-changing Moon, and your moods go through many cycles.

You’re intuitive and nurturing, even psychic. Pay attention to your dreams, especially near a Full Moon.

You are sensitive and loyal, with a ready shoulder to cry on. Cancer loves to get domestic, serving your friends and family home-baked goodies and tea. When you get moody, you need to be comforted, or else just left alone.

Like a crab, you can cling — or pinch — when you feel threatened or vulnerable. And thrifty Cancers can pinch pennies just as tightly. (Of course, you also love to spend! It’s a mood thing.)

To make life easier, surround yourself with comfort: a cozy sweater, a favorite book, trusted friends, and a stash of your favorite goodies. Cancers are close to their moms, so keep yours on speed-dial and call her when you’re down.

You may be an unofficial mom to everyone in your life, too. Taking care of kids, friends, and pets can keep your spirits high.
