The Sign of Loyalty
June 21 – July 22
Color: Silver, Mauve, Smoke Gray

Gemstones: Moonstone, Pearl, Geode, Hematite
Those of you born under this sign are known for your ability to nurture others. You are especially sensitive to the ways people communicate their feelings. You can easily be affected when someone you care about is feeling bad. Learning about feelings & the moods they produce are an important part of who you are. In astrology we consider the Moon to be a planet & it is associated with Cancer. The Moon’s ever changing shape & its effect on the constantly shifting tides of the ocean is like our ever changing moods.
The symbol for Cancer is the crab. Like the crab your insecurities make you want to crawl into your own version of your protective shell. The reason why you are not as secure, sensitive & nurturing as you would like to be is because we do not arrive in the world already an expert in the things that our Sun sign is known for. You have come into this world with the challenge of of the sign Cancer because you want to learn how to be more secure, sensitive & nurturing.
This fits perfectly with the fact that Cancer is one of the 3 water signs (the other 2 are Pisces & Scorpio). Those of you with water signs are sensitive, feeling types & are very imaginative & emotional. Cancer is the water sign that is concerned with protection, caring & comfort.
Cancer is one of the 4 Cardinal signs Sun signs, (the other 3 are Aries, Libra, & Capricorn). Cardinal signs are the 1st signs in each season. Fittingly so, since they are the initiators & act according to their aims & goals. Cancerians are legendary for your ability to nurture people & projects along, for you sense the needs of others on an emotional level. However it is important that you remember that your own emotional needs are just as important. You have to remember to nurture yourself as well as others. Sometimes you are so busy helping others that you forget about yourself.
You will do well to remember that you may not be as strong as the people around you may think you are, but that you certainly are strong enough to do what has to be done to make their dreams come true. You must resist withdrawing into your shell if you start to feel insecure. Your usual courage. patience, & gentle energy are more than you will need to make your life what you will .
Here are a few characteristics for Cancer:
* You have an excellent memory.
