♋️ Sun Series: Cancer ♋️

Hello and welcome back to Astrology Thursday!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Per usual a lot of the information on this first page is going to be pretty similar to what I put on my other sun series articles. (What is a sun sign, more about the series, etc.) So if you wanna skip ahead to the Cancer part go ahead.

Every Thursday I do an article about something Astrology related. I’m starting with going through the sun signs, then the moon signs, then the rising signs, and proceeding from there through the planets and houses. I know that a lot of people don’t believe in astrology and that’s fine, these articles aren’t gonna be about convincing you. (Although I probably will try sometime in the future). I just find astrology fascinating and informative. I’ve also discovered a huge community of like-minded individuals who have the same beliefs about it as I do and this is my blog and I can do what I want here.

So let's get into some astrology shall we?

First, if you’ve never heard of a sun sign here’s the basics. Each astrology sign holds unique properties which influence our lives in different ways. Although people often refer to each of these signs as ‘their sign’, the correct term is ‘sun sign’ which means the position of the sun in the Zodiac the moment you were born.

Overall Astrology is extremely complex and the sun sign is just a very small part of who you are as a person. If you are a Gemini and don’t really relate to these traits it’s likely because you have many strongly placed other signs in your chart that dull the quality of your Gemini sun.

A sun sign is basically the sign that governs your personality and is a reflection of your soul, your ego, your inner self and determines your basic approach to life. You also have your moon sign and your rising sign which contribute significantly to your character, dreams, relationships, and temperament.

Astrology has an impact on your approach to life and how you respond to any given situation. For instance, if your sun sign is Cancer you may use emotional appeal to get things done the way you want and generally just as the crab walks sideways you take an indirect approach. If you were an Aries however, you would take a more direct and physical approach to get things done.

You also have a moon and rising sign, which - very basically, breaks down to your moon is your emotional self and your rising is how you appear to the outside world. It's also your gut reaction to things. For an Aries rising, your typically knee-jerk reaction to things would be to get angry.

Sun Sign key words: basic nature, basic personality traits, values, the “big picture” of your overall personality, consciousness, basic identity, basic ego

NOTE: You are a Cancer Sun sign if you are born between June 22nd and July 22nd although the exact time varies every year so if you were born near the transition you should check to be sure what your sun sign is. I really like the website Just type in your birthday, time of birth, place of birth, and it will give you your accurate sun, moon, and rising sign.

♋️ Sun Series: Cancer ♋️

Cancer is the fourth sign in the zodiac belt. It is a feminine sign and their symbol is the crab.

Cancer is a water sign. The other water signs are Pisces and Scorpio. Cancer is ruled by the moon, they love to look at the moon and are extremely affected by the moon's phases. They are also extremely sensitive and emotional although they get a bad reputation for being “cry-babies.” This just means that their emotions are extremely intense. When you’re happy, you’re really really happy, when you’re sad you’re really really sad. They have an emotional depth that reaches much further than anyone else and they act on it. They make life decisions based on emotion and are very led by emotions all throughout life. They have an inner emotional roller coaster and because of the constant up and down they can come across as moody.

Cancers just like Pisces and Scorpio have intuitiveness. These signs are most prone to psychic abilities. They are connected to the other side more easily. They may dream things that come true, they may talk about something and then it happens. They are prone to experience more coincidences and deja vu more frequently. They are also very intune with other people's emotions. It’s not the easiest sign to be because they are constantly picking up other people's feelings. They think about everyone else and how other people are feeling.

Cancers low-key like drama. That’s why they like reality tv because they’re just dramatic and emotional people. They are really strong and helpful. They will go out of their way to do things for you. They will help their friends even to their own detriment. They are extremely loyal and dedicated to the people that they love. They aren’t judgemental and are very understanding. Some of the best people to talk to. They are the best at having deep talks.

Cancers are typically associated with Mothers because they are very attached to their mothers and are extremely nurturing. They have a stronger need than others to be a parent. They like taking care of people. Good homemakers. They want to take care of you. Extremely sentimental. Cancer rules the 4th house which is the house of family matters. They are extremely attached to their family and family is one of the main focuses of their life.

They can get very attached to people, even if they’re a toxic person they have a hard time letting go of people and relationships. Once they’re committed to someone they are committed and will see the relationship through to the end. They are very sensitive. Almost annoyingly so. They take too many things personally when they weren’t meant to be taken seriously. They tend to be insecure and think that people don’t like them.

A Cancer will use emotions to get what they want. They’re the type of person to guilt trip you into saying yes to something. They are the captain of the pity party. They can be very pessimistic.

They are extremely hard working. They are motivated by emotion. They think that they’re lazy if they’re not working hard. They come across as shy and as homebodies. Their symbol is the crab and they tend to stay in their shell. It can be hard for them to venture out but once they do they are extremely fun people. They are considered the funniest sign because they’re so imaginitive. They’re very sarcastic and are always making jokes.

Cancers are very very hard on themselves. They are the most insecure sign. They think that they can never be good enough. They really want to be liked and are constantly worried that people don’t like them. They just see the world differently and oftentimes aren’t able to get the same emotions back that they put into people. Other people just aren’t capable of feeling the way a Cancer does. They tend to feel misunderstood. A lot of Cancers have depression. They overthink things too much.

A Cancer's greatest challenge is to learn that they are enough. They always put other people first and they need to learn to put themselves first. Despite them thinking that people don’t like them, they are the most like able sign. People are drawn to them. They are good, partners, parents, friends. They’re just good people.

Every sign has a special trait that they bring to the world. Cancers bring their emotional depth, nurturing nature, and a reminder to not be too hard on yourself.

Cancer keywords: emotional, psychic, loving, nurturing, intuitive, fragile, sensitive, observant, deep, realistic, honest, hardworking, family oriented.
