Like Taurus, Uranus can be a stressful counterpoint to sensitive Cancer.

The energy of the Crab is all about safety and sentimentality, while Uranus can be calculating and unemotional. This can make for uncomfortable tension, as it can highlight childhood wounds and trauma. If you have Uranus in Cancer in your chart, it may manifest as being flighty or having difficulty with commitment. When Uranus is in Cancer, it can be difficult to regulate emotions with the intense tension between feeling things strongly and wanting to be logical. Therefore, the key to living with this placement is self-awareness and balance.
