Cancer Zodiac Sign
If born any time from December 21 to January 20, your birth sign is Cancer; the strong, mental, watery sign of the quarter of knowledge; relating to the chest, the arterial system and framework of the body, symbolized by the crab. This shows that you possess a strong mental nature, somewhat aggressive, resourceful, expressive and voluminous in speech. You have a strong will and a persevering intellectual bent. You are easily irritated and you naturally express freely your likes and dislikes relative to persons and things in general. You readily become interested in cults and isms —something new for the mind to feast upon. You have a strong constitution conducive to longevity. You enjoy debate, and all intellectual controversies attract your attention. Being active and rangy in thot you are an apt student of up-to-date developments in the business and educational fields. Your strong mentality makes you somewhat domineering and stubbornly opinionative. You seek knowledge relative to your interests with the view to becoming master of its details and possibilities. You are philosophical, analytical, technical, persistent and unyielding except under the good graces of the opposite sex. You desire to be at the top in all matters relative to business and social life.
Your mentality suggests intellectual pursuits—teaching, law, medicine, speculation, brokerage, commission, insurance, buying and shipping, the managerial position in corporate institutions, in government, banking and such lines as call for rangy intellectual ability. Some of the lesser lines of trade may be entered into safely, but unless the planets of your birth are favorable, large enterprises involving financial responsibility, should be considered with caution and reserve. Continuity is not especially marked, hence, accumulation in the business sphere comes only by persistent and continuous effort along some adaptable line. Deals that turn quickly are more in keeping with your business qualifications.
Your sign of birth denotes a strong physical as well as mental constitution; therefore, you are not easily cut down by physical ailments of the ordinary kind. Your chest being your magnetic center, this section is more readily affected when the stars line up for cross-current irritations with which you specifically co-ordinate. Congestion, pneumonia, arterial and cancerous accumulations are the things to guard against; which may be minimized by simple diet and abstemious living.
In business, marriage and social life, you harmonize best with those born in the signs Virgo, Scorpio, Capricornus, Pisces and Taurus.
Your Astral gem or birth-stone is the garnet. Red is a desirable decorative color as it tends to sharpen the auric attraction and enhance your welfare and general appearance.
Cancer and Love
Loyalty and deep emotions are the gifts this sign brings to love and romance. Cancers will give lavishly of what they have, be it time, affection or that surprise bouquet of flowers when the paycheck comes in. Cancers are a bit secretive, so you won’t always know what they are thinking. To the Cancer, secrecy is a form of security. What people don’t know can’t cause the Cancer problems. People born under this horoscope sign are very sensitive to the old adage “knowledge is power.” So be gentle with your Cancer. If you want to know something, ask politely and never demand to know what he or she is thinking. Most of the time, the Cancers secrets are relatively harmless and are more important to them than they are in reality.
