Cancer lovers: What to expect from your Cancer in love
Common features of Cancer relationships
Ruling planet: Moon
Zodiac element: Water
Zodiac quality: Cardinal
Rules: 4th house
Birthstone: Emerald - Moonstone, Pearl, Ruby (these birthstones really have nothing to do with astrology. They're established by jewelers, and competing jewelers sometimes use different systems)
People of Water signs tend to be emotional, sensitive and more spiritual than average. Often they relate better to people of other Water signs. Their feelings run deep and they can be easily hurt (though they often hide this vulnerability). They tend to be very loving and romantic and take relationships very seriously.
People of negative signs tend to be introvert, responsible, practical, serious and more likely to be pessimistic (when compared to people of positive signs). They typically relate better to people of other negative signs (though their soulmates are typically of positive signs).
People of cardinal signs tend to be initiators and leaders, and are typically forceful and dynamic. On the negative side they can be seen as demanding, inconsiderate or controlling. Two cardinal signs together can have control issues.
The moon is the closest planet to us and due to this it moves the fastest from our viewpoint. In astrology it controls emotions and our basic emotional needs (how we nurture others and how we need to be nurtured ourselves). Conceptually the moon represents emotions, instincts, subconscious, mother, nurturing, care. Your private inner life (as compared to your external life which others can see)
The 4th house symbolizes the home and family. Things which nurture and comfort us, protect us from the world, and give us our heritage. Conceptually the 4th house represents how we react to things beyond our control (emotions and emotional retreat), mothering, nurturing, childhood security, home/shelter, ancestry and self care.
If you were born on the first or last day of Cancer then it's worth noting that the signs do not neatly correspond to calendar days. You may wish to check out the articles on the Gemini Cancer cusp or Cancer Leo cusp.
