  • Magic of difference -that in our differences we can be so magical in helping each other. A taller and a shorter person, black and white people coexist for the colour power like in a garden
  • Work with chaos for great things to emerge -Do not be afraid to lead when things are confusing and chaotic. Out of any chaotic situation something great comes out
  • Be the leader others want to follow-you cant lead without people and so let people be in front of you and you lead from behind or beside. Never go on a high table where those you lead are not allowed.
  • Create steps and not barriers- everyone you lead must get to you through steps. Remove every barrier
  • Network and share- after all the more you share with the more supporters you create. They will appreciate you at a time when you have forgotten
  • Power of love of humans versus love for materials-once you taste money as a leader you will have a gold rush all your life. Be mild in possessions of materials .
  • Create positive energy-avoid negative energy. Appreciate the many good things you do and capitalise on strengths than being drained in weaknesses. Never look back, look ahead. Never ask why, ask how.

Born between June 22 and July 1 
If the person is born between these days, the planetary ruler is Moon. Now, the fact is that the nature makes them a double Cancerian, in which all the positive and negative traits of this sign would be more prominent. Those born under this influence are sensitive, generous and creative. They have a great sense of intuition, and are very eager to help others in a positive fashion. In doing this, they earn a enormous amount of self-satisfaction. Hence, they can be termed as true givers. A feeling of sense of security for themselves and their loved ones is essential for them. In addition, they are the happiest when in the company of their near and dear ones where they feel most comfortable. However, they tend to be over emotional blocking their objectivity while dealing with matters which require their judgement.


Peaceful and passionate, the Cancer women have perplexing emotions and can become stubborn, docile, affectionate, and agitated – all in the same hour. Hence, keep your calm and composure while dealing with the Cancer women. Read on their basic characteristics here to understand these complex personalities better.

  • The Cancer women’s moods wax and wane like the lunar cycle. But the challenge for others is, there is no pattern to their mood swings so one can never correctly anticipate what will come next. It is often observed that the Cancer women are prone to pessimism and negative attitude.
  • Known for building a fortress around their emotions, the Cancer women take a lot of time to trust someone and pour their hearts out. They dislike criticism and rejection and will do everything in their capacity to avoid them. Hence, treat them with love and affection and give them emotional security if you want them to be your forever.
  • When they are hurt, they retreat into a silent spell, go deep in their shells where are unreachable. However, they will not plan a revenge against the person who has hurt them. They may become extremely irritable but will rarely do anything to hurt you on purpose, as they are too sensitive of others’ feelings.
  • The Cancer females make great cooks! They love to cook for the people they love and when they are in their element, they can give even a professional chef a run for his money! They are also good at budgeting and managing finances. Neither will they be stingy, nor be spendthrifts. The Cancer women will save everything usable or has a sentimental value attached.
  • Cautious that they are, the Cancer women will not take impulsive decisions. They will carefully consider all the pros and cons and then make a move. They need to know that what they are doing is right and in their best interests.
  • Imaginative and creative, the Cancer women have an artistic bent. Poetry, music, paintings and the serenity of nature help relax and unwind. Besides, they help them deal with their legendary mood swings!
  • Although they are very much capable of looking after themselves and not emotionally weak, they need to be regularly told that they are loved and needed. It is this assurance that keeps them going and gives them strength to take up challenges.

Zodiac signs Astrology  website even sums it up so well as follows

428276_3665605379290_2006254682_nCancer and Independence:

Cancer is the astrology sign that is packed full of contradictions so when it comes to independence, they possibly can or can not be independent. On one side, they have the perseverance and drive to do what needs to be done, they are self-sufficient and do not need to depend on other people for the material and physical things in life. On the other hand, they depend on people for emotional support and encouragement. A Cancer that is not fully self-actualized will need the constant support of others and will not be very independent but the Cancer that is ‘evolved’ and has properly harnessed their emotional issues will be wildly successful as an independent human being. They crave attention and comfort from other people and they are happiest when they have a small, close knit group of friends or family.

Cancer and Friendship:

Cancer is extremely loyal to those who appreciate and support them, they are the nurturer of the zodiac and will protect and cherish the person for a long time. One of the greatest things about Cancer is their ability to make others feel good about themselves and loved. This is because instead of doing this for themselves, they project this onto other people. This is a positive cycle because in making others feel nurtured, wanted and loved, they in return feel good for making someone feel good. Other people can lean on and depend on cancer, they will listen to people’s problems and help them however they will rarely express their own deep feelings to anyone. People who want to share deep emotional thoughts and opinions with a Cancer might feel that the scales are tipped on one side for cancer will rarely reveal it’s true deep feelings. A friend of Cancer is usually a lifelong devoted friend that can be trusted.

Cancer and Business:

Once cancer resolved their emotional issues such as shyness and insecurity, the powerful character will shine though, there is practically nothing they can’t do. They have incredible perseverance and will stand up for what they believe in. With their strong intuition, sensitivity, powers of observation and intelligence, they will have great success in anything they undertake. They are excellent business people and investors because of their intuitive and psychic ability and their creative forward thinking mind, they are able to predict future trends. They attract wealth very well and know where to invest. Money and financial well being is very important to Cancer and this can help their drive in business. They need financial security and if they allow themselves to properly focus their energy and do not allow their emotions to over take them, they are more then capable of obtaining their financial goals and being incredibly successful business people.

Cancer Temperament:

They are complex, fragile, unpredictable and temperamental and need constant support and encouragement, more then any other astrology signs, Cancer needs to be needed. Even when all needs are satisfied, they can be irritable and cranky. They have an uneasy, delicate temperament. The contradictory nature of Cancer gives their temperament the wild mood swings and possible temper tantrums. They are easily offended and will sulk and wallow in self pity for a long time when they get hurt.

Cancer Deep Inside:

It is difficult for cancer to open up and have a close emotionally fulfilled relationship with someone because they are so closed off emotionally and physically to the world. This is driven by their fear of trust, Cancer has a difficult time trusting people. This causes built up anger and resentment inside, the contradictory nature really takes a toll on them and they can have a negative outlook on life, thinking that life is just too hard and miserable. This is unfortunate because when good experiences are to be had, they are skeptical of people and their surroundings and they experience tunnel vision due to their depressed outlook and they miss the nice things and happy experiences in life that make it worth living. In addition to lack of trust for people, Cancer is deeply sensitive and easily hurt, this is other reason why they have their defense shell in place, to avoid being hurt by others. Cancer lives in the past. They hold past events close to them and often dwell on the past. They have to learn to let go and live in the present instead of spending their time being sick with nostalgia. Cancer has a lot of emotional issues to deal with but once they overcome this large hump of shyness and insecurity, there is practically nothing they can’t do. With their strong intuition, sensitivity, powers of observation and intelligence, they will have great success in anything they undertake. Cancer is constantly feeling, feelings and emotions are hallmarks of this sign and this is the root of their problems, human beings are not as evolved in the emotional area and this is where cancer gets the brunt of their problems. They are the ones who have to cope with their strong feelings more so then any other sign. Once properly harnessed, there is nothing that is this powerful astrology sign can not accomplish. Harmony is very important to Cancer, it keeps them happy. Conflict of any kind causes great distress. Deep inside, Cancer is a very powerful sign, they have the ability to stand up for what they think is right and they have lots of perseverance and can be fine on their own provided they don’t let their emotions get the better of them and have the stability they need. They are not fond of change but they have the ability to do what needs to be done, they are not pushovers or lazy people.

Cancer in a Nutshell:

Cancer is a mysterious sign, filled with contradictions. They want security and comfort yet seek new adventure. They are very helpful to others yet sometimes can be cranky and indifferent. Cancer has a driving, forceful personality that can be easily hidden beneath a calm, and cool exterior. The crab is Cancer’s ruling animal and it suits them well, they can come out of their shell and fight but they can also hide in their shell of skitter away back into the depths of the ocean. They are very unpredictable. With cancer, there is always something more that meets the eye, for they are always partially hidden behind the shell. They are a have a deep psyche and intuitive mind that is hidden from the world. Cancer is deeply sensitive and easily hurt, this might be why they have their defense shell in place, to avoids being hurt by others. They are nurturers so they surround themselves with people, whom after a while can offend or hurt a cancer without even knowing they did so, therefore Cancer’s protective shell keeps them safe from hurt. They are complex, fragile, unpredictable and temperamental and need constant support and encouragement, more then any other astrology signs, Cancer needs to be needed. When cancer gets the support it needs, it has a tremendous amount to offer in return. When cancer gets offended, they tend to sulk instead of confronting the persons face to face. This needlessly prolongs the pain and suffering. Cancer is very possessive, not just with material possessions but with people as well. Cancer will always want to stay in touch with old friends and anyone who has ever been close to them, because it is easier to maintain a friendship then attempt to learn to trust a new person. It is easier this way for them emotionally. If you befriend a Cancer, you will stay friends for a long time. Cancer makes the perfect mother, this is the sign that represents motherhood. They have unconditional love and caring more so then any other astrology sign. Cancer are very intuitive. Most of the psychics of the world are Cancer astrology signs. They have an excellent memory and are very observant and can read people very well. They can usually tell of other people’s intentions are good or not. Never dupe a Cancer, they can see your motives. Cancer has a lot of emotional issues to deal with but once they overcome this large hump of shyness and insecurity, there is practically nothing they can’t do. With their strong intuition, sensitivity, powers of observation and intelligence, they will have great success in anything they undertake.
