Fun Facts about Cancer

Last update on November 10, 2014 - Provided by
Deeply intuitive and sentimental, Cancerians can be one of the most challenging of the Zodiac to get to know. Emotion runs strong for this sign, and when it comes to family and home, nothing is more important.
Sympathetic and empathic, Cancerians are greatly attuned to those around them. 'Devotion' is the key word for this sign.

Friends and Family
Traditional and maternal, Cancerians make excellent parents. In fact, all aspects of family are important to this sign. This can be seen in the homes they make and in the dedication to duty they display. Cancerians are often willing to overlook personality conflicts when it comes to family, simply because they are related. Whatever needs to be done, you can count on a Cancerian to go the distance for a family member. They are deeply sentimental and diligent about keeping family albums and history intact. Passing on stories to the next generation is a favorite pastime.

When it comes to friendships, the Cancerian is very helpful. They're almost always willing to lend a hand, providing it doesn't conflict with family obligations. Friends are held in high regard and are generally of like mind. Because the Cancerian generally prefers the home scene, folks who enjoy sharing activities such as cards or at-home dining are top picks for buddies. While their deeply intuitive personality makes Cancerians very sympathetic, it can also make them a little hard to understand. Time is the cure for this!

Career and Money
The Cancerian can be as tenacious as they are sensitive. When there's a job to do, they roll up their sleeves and get to it. They especially shine when performing caregiving or related tasks. Other career ambitions can include housekeeper, gardener, and journalist. A Cancer's love of country gives them the base to being an outstanding politician. The need to feel as though they are making a difference, however small, is essential for this sign to feel fulfilled.

Security is of the utmost importance to the Cancerian, and money is no different. Making money generally comes easily. Cancerians are not overspenders; in fact, they are far more apt to invest a few dollars and make their money grow. Many Cancer personalities see money as a symbol of their status in life and are inspired to build up healthy bank accounts as a result. Cancers are resourceful and manage their time and money well.

Love and Sex
"I feel" is the key phrase for Cancer, and this is all too evident when it comes to love. Tender and gentle, the Cancerian will show sensitivity with their lovers without a second thought. They love readily and choose a mate who can understand them as much as possible. Superficial or overly ambitious partners are not well suited. The Cancerian will look for someone who is equally as intuitive as they are. They are devoted partners, love children, and marry for life.
