18 CANCER.png

Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac. The number 4 represents stability and home life. Which is why cancers are very protective of loved ones and their homes. Cancer is ruled by the Moon leaving them very in-tuned to the emotions of themselves and those around them.

The symbol for Cancer is the Crab. Very much like their little crustacean friends they will retreat into their "shell" when they feel the need to protect themselves from feeling of insecurity or emotional overload. Cancer is also a Cardinal sign. As the first sign in their season they are natural born leaders but cancers lead in a very quiet way. ​
