A typical Cancerian is protective, often stubborn and sometimes moody. Cancerians have highly attuned intuition and reliable decision making skills and reactions however they are also prone to worrying too much. Cancerians can be very quick to pick up information but also habits from others. It’s certainly worth noting that just like the crab Cancerians can project a hard outer shell but be soft and sensitive on the inside.
Cancerians are very good home-makers; they have a caring nature and look for long term relationships. However, Cancerians might also be accused of being too clingy and sometimes too quick to snap. Cancerians tend to look backwards and reminisce rather than forward and look forward to significant changes like a new house. On a similar note, Cancerians tend to prefer to live near close friends and immediate family and may be slightly cautious of new faces and influences.
When a diplomat or mediator is needed then few do better than a Cancerian. Cancerians can put their skills to work in most jobs although there may always be that reluctance to change.
