Know About Zodiac Signs: Cancer (Karka), Chapter 4, Part - 4

Dr. Shanker Adawal

The Moon has the lordship of this sign and it has a direct influence on the mind which can be seen and felt in varying ways during each unique phase of the Moon. This will be particularly hard for those who are slightly unstable as the pulls exerted by the Moon on the tides, can also be felt in the brain fluids, which will make the effects of the mental illness more enhanced. This is how the asylums came to call their inmates `lunatics’ as they were worse, or more dangerous, during the full Moon. The Moon also brings out the negative side of the Cancerian nature which he or she must continually battle in order to overcome what could easily become a major flaw in character causing themselves and others much grief and pain.

The symbol for Cancer is the Crab, which symbolize Cancerian native’s strong association with water, a feminine element. On Earth, water is the origin of all life, so Cancer is associated with life giving element. The Cancerian natives will be the consummate mother, always concerned with caring for others, whether family, friends, or associates. Cancerian will also need to be acknowledged that they need to be cared for themselves in order to be emotionally balanced. They will be more emotional than practical. Their creative side might lead them into professions in the arts, theater, and music.

The essence of the Cancerian personality can be boiled down to one word, sensitivity, when examined will be a maze of winding roads that can lead anywhere and everywhere. These winding roads actually will start at birth with the inborn instinct for survival and his or her utter dependence on the world, and the fear born of this dependency. While they will have the innate desire to succeed gloriously in the world, they will also have a resentment that grows with each instance of facing for harsh realities in living. They will do well to learn to seek to protect rather than to seek protection as this will help them to change their negative leanings into a positive attitude which will guide them through adversity. Cancer is known as the peacemaker of the zodic and therefore the natives born under this sign will have a lot of patience and understanding of others. They will hate to see pain and suffering in others. They will love to nurture and help others, but they will hide their own feelings in an effort to avoid conflict. Cancerian will find their greatest security within the structure of a family setting due to the maternal side and the need to protect those n his or her charge. There is a homey feel about Cancer that draws the other signs; they will have the ability to attune to the moods of others quickly or to change their moods. They will have a very sentimental nature, an incurable romantic, and they will love every nice thing around them. As their memory will be very sharp they will always keep in their mind the slights and favors done by others for them. They will have to learn to forgive and forget in order to ward off the dark depressions in which they may fall into. It is a better truth that Cancerian will be the most emotional of all the signs and therefore it will be must for them to learn to deal with world.

In nutshell it can be said that Cancer is a mysterious sign, filled with contradictions. Cancerian natives will require security and comfort yet seek new adventure. They will be very helpful to others yet sometimes can be cranky and indifferent. Cancerian native will have a driving, forceful personality that can be easily hidden beneath a calm and cool exterior. The crab is Cancer’s ruling animal and it suits them well, they can come out of their shell and fight but they can also hide in their shell or skitter away back into the depths of the ocean. They will be very unpredictable. With cancer there will always be something more that meets the eye, for they will always be partially hidden behind the shell. They will have deep psyche and intuitive mind that will be hidden from the world. Cancer will be deeply sensitive and easily hurt; being hurt by others. They will be nurturers so they surround themselves with people, whom after a while can offend or hurt a cancer without even knowing they did so, therefore Cancer’s protective shell will keep them safe from hurt. They will be complex, fragile, unpredictable and temperamental and will need constant support and encouragement, more then any other astrology sign, Cancer will need to be needed. When cancer gets the support it needs, it will have a tremendous amount to offer in return. When cancer will get offended, they will tend to sulk instead of confronting the persons face to face. This will needlessly prolong the pain and suffering. Cancerian native will be very possessive, not just with material possessions but with people as well. Cancerian will always want to stay in touch with old friends and anyone who has ever been close to them, because it will be easier to maintain a friendship then attempt to learn to trust of a new person. It will be easier this way for them emotionally. If one befriend of a Cancerian, he or she will stay and for a long time. Cancer will make the perfect mother as this is the sign that represents motherhood. They will have unconditional love and caring more so then any other astrology sign. Cancerian will be very intuitive. They will have an excellent memory and will be very observant and can read people very well. They can usually tell of other people’s intentions are good or not. Cancerian will have a lot of emotional issues to deal with but once they overcome this large hump of shyness and insecurity, there will be practically nothing they can not do. With their strong intuition, sensitivity, powers of observation and intelligence, they will have great success in anything they undertake.
