The Cancer Horoscope

Our delineation of the Cancer horoscope follows a very logical method, based on ancient basic and archetypal principles. It's NOT about stereotypes.

Every zodiac sign is the result of the so-called Quadruplicities or Modes (Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable signs) and Triplicities (related to the four elements: Fire, Air, Water and Earth).

The Cancer horoscope is based on the Cardinal Water energies:

  • The Cardinal principle is about acting (doing) and urges. It implies initiating activity and executing power.

    Cardinal is changing, disturbing and unsettling. Cardinals are the "do-ers" and initiators.

  • The Water principle is about emotion and compassion. Water runs deep and is highly sensitive, working in a subtle, non-physical way.

    It is quiet, receptive (introvert) and collecting. Water is imaginative and hiding, retiring (invisible).

Blending cardinal water into something tangible or material, you get the keyword of "the source."

The main characteristics of the Sun (representing your self-expressing life force) in the cardinal water sign Cancer are:

  • family- and/or home-minded
  • caring, nurturing and a love of the heritage and the past (protective)
  • courteous
  • very attached to someone or something when familiar with him/her/it
  • unobtrusive but tenacious
  • easily feels pushed away or neglected
  • careful about money
  • female Cancer is attracted to a 'family man'

Depending on your birth date, the Cancer horoscope divides into the following three decanates:

June 21/22-30

  • very ambitious and business-minded
  • motherly but more home- than family-minded
