Cancer is the sign of home and family life. Always ready to supply emotional nurturing by "mothering" everyone who appears to be in need, Cancerians can be kind, sympthetic, patient listeners. Their astrological symbol - the Crab, has certain behaviours directly associated with the nature of this sign. The hard outer shell protects the soft vulnerable flesh underneath. Often grumpy, snappish, and cold at times, Cancerians can be real softies underneath their tough exterior. Just as the Crab walks sideways, people under this sign never take a direct approach to accomplishing their goals. This complex, and unpredictable sign needs constant support and love but resent needing approval so badly. However if they are made to feel secure you will earn their affection and undying loyalty. In love they prove to be devoted, protective and possesive lovers. Not known for their ability to forgive and forget, the emotional Crab feels most things very strongly, so don't be the one to cross them!
