Deep and Intuitive

Cancer - symbolized by the crab - has so much going on in its watery depths. Emotional and intuitive, most Cancers have been called psychic at some point, and with good reason—Cancer can often intuit relationships, ideas, and motivations before anyone has actually spoken. Crabs don't need all the facts and figures to know the right course of action, and their ability to trust intuition without judgment can aid them well. This gift is one that other Zodiac signs can learn from and be inspired by.

Creative and Imaginative

Cancer loves creating and needs some type of creative outlet, whether it's painting, writing, or even just reading. This sign has an active internal life, and is often are happy living in the realm of imagination. Cancers are adept at dealing with things that may not be visible, operating in the world of emotions, feelings, and senses. As a result, Cancer signs can also find themselves naturally inclined towards things of a spiritual nature.

Intensely Committed to Relationships

Cancers tend to be happiest when they're part of a pair, and the best relationship brings out their greatest traits. It's not uncommon for Cancer to fall into committed love after just a few days or weeks, and even though that decision is sudden, it can easily last a lifetime. Cancer is incredibly loyal, sometimes to a fault. Cancers will go to the ends of the earth and even against their own beliefs to help someone they love.

Hard Shell on the Outside, Soft on the Inside

While Cancers are drawn to forming deep, lasting relationships, true to their Crab nature, at first Cancers can seem like they have a hard shell. Cancers are deep thinkers and feelers, so much so that they abhor small talk, which is why "first impressions" and larger social gatherings can sometimes be challenging for Cancers. They'd much rather spend time in small groups where everyone is on the same page and there isn’t any need for fake niceties. Cancers may seem prickly and standoffish at first meeting, once they make the decision to become friends with someone, that person has a friend for life.

Deep Waters Come with Deep, Powerful Emotions

Cancers have a huge range and depth of emotion that they intuit and feel, and have probably heard others tell them to "be less emotional" at some point. Their emotional state is not just something experienced internally, either: a Cancer’s emotions are felt by anyone else around them, too. When a Cancer sign is happy, the world knows it, and when they're unhappy, the world will likewise feel this, too. In general, a Cancer tends to feel things more deeply than others, causing them to have bigger and more visible moods, which can highly influence the moods and actions of those around them as well.
