I Am a Cancer

    I am a Cancerian and proud to be one.

    When I was younger, I used to hate being one because I saw my sign as weak. As I got older, I realized that we are one of the most powerful signs in the zodiac. We are emotional, yes, but that's not always a bad thing. We feel things deeply than other signs and that's our way of...

    Yup, for better or worse I am a Cancer.

    Some times I am the life of the party, and others I just want to hide in my shell and be left to myself.

    Cancer Indeed

    Hmmm, I'm not toooo attached to the Zodiac/Astrology. But, I came across this, and my curiosity urged me forward: "Cancers are ruled by the Moon -- the Great Mother of the heavens in ancient times. Here on Earth, this is manifested in the Crab's maternal instincts and desire to...

    Its Hard For Us To Forgive And Forget.

    Cancer natives have a strong survival instinct. They are protective of those they care about, and of themselves too. They are often quite reticent about sharing their inner selves to the rest of the world, and are often caught up in reminisce. Cancer needs roots. They resist...

    Thank To My Friend For Sharing This

    Cancer, the fourth sign of the zodiac, is a water sign, which signifies your highly emotional nature. Being under the sway of the element of water also makes you highly caring, generous and intuitive. You are highly evolved, even spiritual — the water signs are karmically...

    This is my personal opinion. My experience as a cancer has been a very colorful adventure. I would like to share my thoughts amongst others that can relate. Cancers usually are empaths. Because we are so sensitive and so indulged in feelings, we usually can pick up on others...

    I was born July 20th,

    1994. I turned 20 a few days ago and I had a blast! I went to an amusement park with a friend. I've noticed that a lot of my fellow cancerians are sprinters or athletes like myself.

    and I often identify more with Sagittarius traits in some respects. To those of you who know what other signs are in your chart, to what extent do you feel the same?

    I just love astrology in all. I've always been fascinated by the moon, and when I did research on the Cancer zodiac sign, I found that the moon is my ruling planet! I love the idea of space and the stars as well. It all seems so beautiful. Anyway, cancers are very emotional...

    Why Do I Always Find Myself Surrounded By Incompatibles?

    I am a cancer. I am moody, feminine, homey, nostalgic. A lot of times I feel like people don't get me. But I somehow always find the people in my life- the major players, like my boss, my boyfriend, my neighbors, prospective friends, to be completely astrologically incompatible...

    It's My Blessing And My Curse

    Being a Cancer is sort of a push-pull feeling every day... It is nice to be able to know what people are thinking and feeling even before they do... unless it is something that hurts. It is nice to be able to remember all the small facts of everyday life that have ever happened...
