Know About Zodiac Signs: Cancer (Karka), Chapter 4, Part - 10

Dr. Shanker Adawal

Physical structure:

Physically the natives born under this sign will be medium or average to below average in height, with a fleshy thickly built body with short and powerful arms, and short legs in comparison with the rest of body. As the Cancer is a watery sign which rules the stomach, the excess water in the body can create a protruding belly. The legs and perhaps the arms may be slightly bent outwards at the center joint. Usually their face will be round with double chin, neck may be short, eyes will be small and blue or grey in colour, hair will be brown, nose will be short-perhaps upturned, complexions will be pale, hips may be broad and their forehead will be very prominent. Sometimes they will walk clumsily. Cancerian man often show a tendency for baldness in their middle age.

Eating Habits:

Cancerian natives will put on weight easily and because they will not like the idea of becoming overweight they will be aware of the calorie content of the food they eat. Despite this, because of its richness and flavour, cream will be a particular favourite of them. Traditional foods and anything that provide comfort and which will remind them of their childhood will make them feel good. There will be nothing like a home-cooked meal to cheer up the Cancerian.


Cancer governs the chest, breast, elbows, stomach and digestion, womb and female reproductive organs; therefore can affect any part of the body. As the sign mainly governs the stomach portion of the body health problems may develop in the digestive tract. Also being the watery planet sometimes and if Moon is afflicted in the horoscope, it can be the cause of problems related with urinary tract and diabetics.

Common diseases:

The diseases likely to attack these people will be weak digestion and gastric troubles. These ailments and every other known to man can be entirely dominated and forever cast out, by those who realize that mind is the master and the body the servant of the mind. Cancerian are said to be liable to breast cancer and to suffer from pleurisy, dropsy, piles and varicose veins. The excitability mentioned above can lead to weak digestion, gastritis and other stomach ills, and there is a tendency to coughs and weakness of vision.

Love Life:

In their personal relationships they will be mentally a mixture of toughness and softness, often emotional and romantic to the point of sentimentally in their fantasies; but in real life and in marriage, their loving nature will not be so sentimental but tenaciously loyal. Particularly a Cancerian male may have affairs as they will be open to sensual stimulation. Even if they have affairs their first loyalty remains to spouse and family, of whom they will regard themselves as the protector. Both the Cancerian man and woman will love unreservedly, giving much and asking little in return; in fact, one of the most important lessons they will have to learn will be how to receive gracefully. They will be too easily influenced by those whom they will love and admire, and swayed by the emotion of the moment. They will also be loyal friends, the negative side of their faithfulness being clannishness, the narrow patriotism of “my country right or wrong”; and closing ranks in suspicion and coldness toward outsiders. Notwithstanding love and loyalty of the natives born under Cancer sign they are apt to change companions and friends very frequently, often becoming bitter enemies of those to whom they were previously attached.

Like the natives of Taurus sign the natives born under Cancer sign will like committed relationships. Cancerian will function best when the relationship will be clearly defined and everyone knows his or her role. When they marry usually it will be for life. They will be extremely loyal to their beloved. But there will be a deep little secret that most Cancerian will never admit to and that is commitment or partnership will really be a chore and a duty to them. They enter into it because they know of no other way to create the family that they desire. Union will be just a way or a means to an end rather than an end in itself. The family will be the ultimate end for them. If one is in love with a Cancerian than he must tread lightly on his or her feelings. It will take her or him a good deal of time to realize that how deep and sensitive Cancerian can be. The smallest negativity will upset them. His or her tone of voice, irritation, a look in his or her eye or an expression on his or  her face can cause great distress for the Cancerian native. Lover’s slightest gesture will be registered by them and reacted too. This may be difficult for a person but love of Cancerian native will make great partners once he learns how to deal with them. Natives born under Pisces, Scorpio and Aquarius sign will prove best love matches for a Cancerian native.
