Those with placements in cancer possess a deep sensitivity, an urge to protect one's self, a need to be alone but at the same time to initmately connect with those around them. With this depth of emotions comes a fierce strength.

They are very protective of their energy, usually have few friends but very meaningful connections.

They have strong empathetic ablities, making them great listeners and advice givers. Firecely loyal and intuitive, good at reading people and understanding their true intentions.

Their sensitivity, if not balanced, can result in them taking things very personally. Due to their unwavering loyalty they can sometimes 'lose themselves' through love for others. 

Their deep emotions can also make them seem moody at times.

Rebirth is strongly associated with this sign, going within and emerging victoriously aware of who they are.
