Sun Sign Birthday Special: Cancer
Cancer season lands from around June 21st to July 22nd, so what better time to wish a happy birthday to that special Cancerian in your life by getting to know them a little better?
Let’s take a closer look then at those born under the sign of the Crab to discover more about what it is that floats their boats.
Who They Are
Inextricably linked to the image of the Crab, Cancerians are well known for their tough outer shells and crabby exteriors. For those lucky enough to get to know the real Cancerian hiding within though, there’s often a soft and sensitive soul dwelling there.
Equally as famous for the sheer variety of their mood swings, which can range from sunshine and rainbows one minute, to thundery storm clouds the next, this first of the Water signs (Scorpio being the second and Pisces the third), can catch you off guard if you’ve yet to experience this side of their nature. The good news though is that any storms tend to pass over quickly and then it’s all sunshine and smiles again!
Home & Family
Considered to have exceptionally strong maternal and caring instincts whether directed at children, animals or loved ones generally, the Cancer born are the caretakers of the Zodiac. They thrive in stability and have a loving and nurturing disposition.
If it comes down to a choice between an emotionally fulfilling career or a well-paid one, Cancerian’s usually choose or do better in the former.
Making the most of those famed natural Cancer caring attributes makes the care profession a perfect choice for these guys or even hospitality with their love of cooking being another well-known typical trait.
Health & Well Being
Robust health is the default position as a rule and as tough cookies they generally deal well with any health related hiccups along the way.
That said, being naturally anxious with a tendency to let their overactive imagination run away with them, can lead to problems manifesting in other less obvious ways such as acne breakouts and other skin problems as well as digestive issues and of course, anxiety in general. Taking steps to reduce the urge to enjoy a little worry should help so a digital detox or distracting themselves with creative exercise and hobbies including dancing can be a great way to combat such issues.
The Cancer born is renowned for their compassion for others and emotional depths, enjoying life best when mothering those nearest and dearest to them.
All signs have their negative traits though and for the Cancerian these can include:
- A melancholic disposition
- Can come across as aggressive and hostile initially
- Overly sensitive
- Moody and irritable at times without warning
- Overly sentimental
- Clingy by nature
Birthday Gift Ideas
Many Cancerians have a love of cooking and fine food so treating them to a cooking set or to a nice meal could well be a winner. Or, why not appeal to their natural homemaking tendencies with a fancy ornament or decorative knick-knack to add to their no doubt tasteful collection.
Playing on their links in astrology to the Moon as their ruling planet, silver jewellery can be an excellent choice as can a Moonstone crystal for those that are fans of the esoteric.
The Cancerian creature is an emotional and sensitive soul, with a big heart for those they love best. Sure they can have moody moments but holding a grudge is rare and soon they are back to their sweet and chatty selves in next to no time at all.
