One of the biggest
problems for individuals who are born under the water sign
of Cancer is that they can be slaves to their emotions. Combined
with a vivid imagination you may, if not careful, become consumed
with worry - especially over your nearest and dearest. Fear
for the wellbeing and safety of loved ones is Cancer's Achilles'
Worry can also have a detrimental effect on
your digestion, which is linked to your birth sign, resulting
in complaints of the digestive system. You need to eat several
small meals a day and to allow yourself time to relax after
meals. Food allergies and eating disorders are not uncommon.
Cancer is the sign of nurturing - and that means yourself
as much as anyone else.
Your over-developed imagination means that you
can exaggerate the importance of minor ailments so be sure
to get medical advice before panicking.
Cancer is strongly associated with the past
and Moon people tend to be sentimental and traditional. You
do, however, need to avoid clinging on to outdated patterns
of thought or behaviour. You have a long memory and a tendency
to dwell on those things which are no longer valid or relevant
to your life. Learning to forgive themselves is an important
lesson for all Cancers.
A strong and loving home base is not only necessary
but essential for your health, happiness and general well-being.
You have a great deal of love to give and need to be surrounded
by people who appreciate your caring qualities. Worried or
under pressure you have the ability to wound those who love
you. You are extremely sensitive to any kind of criticism.
Like the Crab which symbolizes your birth sign, your tough
shell hides a sensitive, vulnerable soul. Do as you would
be done by is an apt phrase for Cancer people.
With Pluto, the planet of renewal, currently
passing through the health angle of your solar chart, where
it will remain until the beginning of 2010, you should be
taking particular care of yourself, just now. Avoid overstraining
yourself physically, and pay attention to your bodily needs
It should be pointed out that the sign of Cancer
has absolutely no connection with the disease of the same
name. However, since the sign is linked to the breasts, Cancer
women would be well advised to examine themselves regularly
and have routine check-ups.
In common with your opposite sign of Capricorn,
you have great determination and tenacity which generally
enables you to get your own way. A gentle demeanour can disguise
an iron resolve. Once you know what you want, you will stop
at nothing to achieve or acquire it. You will fight like a
demon on behalf of those you love and defend them to the death.
Your instincts and intuition are finely-honed
and you must learn to trust them. Your first impressions tend
to be the right ones. You are prone to dramatic mood-changes
- frequently influenced by the Moon's phases - but are not
terribly keen on disruptions to your lifestyle.
Avoid bottling up your emotions. Your ability
to absorb other people's feelings make it important that you
can air and share your own. It is all too easy for you to
get weighed down by concerns for others which can have an
adverse effect on your health.
Because you give so much to those around
you, you need time and space for yourself. It is vital that
you have a personal bolt hole, a room or area of your own
where you can go, at regular intervals, to recharge your batteries.
