The sign of Cancer is typically symbolized by our animal sign, the Crab. A simplified or sometimes called ink version is a glyph of the Crab's rounded shape with two circles and two big claws. It's meaning is just as complex as we are:
- The two small circles represent the Earth and Sun and the big circles around them represent the cycles of the Moon, our ruler.
- The two big circles are also the Crab's big claws. Always grabbing for more, these claws represent our sign’s limitless ambition, but also our clinginess and failure to let go.
- It depicts an impenetrable exterior with a soft interior that symbolizes the strength of our personality and our powerful emotions.
