Cancerians are very sensitive and emotional people, although they are naturally defensive and have a continuous fear of being hurt. They put everything that they are capable of into their relationship to make it work.

The Cancerian has a heart of emotion but will only expose their feelings gradually. When they feel their mate is trustworthy, they can find their long awaited security and only then commit themselves to anyone.

When Cancerians fall in love it is in totality. They have a special need for permanence in a relationship and are not interested in mere flirtations. Without love they lead unhappy and unfulfilled lives.

Best Match For Cancer Is CANCER
This is an excellent match and you will find it hard to tear yourselves away from one another! Stay clear of getting too wrapped up in one another though...

This match can make music together, if married, it will be blissful. They understand one another’s moods, needs and desires. Although there may be times when they are in complete disagreement they understand that early childhood and life’s experiences were different and will in turn find a peaceful solution.

Both have the tenacity to sink their claws into something and will hang tight despite danger or peril. But, in the end will give the other a nod, both understanding they too have the same trait, and will go on again with their marital bliss.

Worst Match For Cancer is Aries
Hardly a match made in heaven Aries and Cancer tend to clash. Do not despair if you are in one of these relationships, true love will overcome. Both Aries and cancer are powerful and very self expressive. However, Cancer can be sensitive and somewhat anxious while Aries people are dominant and spontaneous. Aries is not the greatest at expressing their feelings. This leads to the constant annoyance of the moody, retrospective Cancer.

Not a perfect match as Cancer will produce a mood not compatible with the Aries make-up. Cancerians tend to live in the past, so they do not take disagreements lightly. Then the often head-strong Aries will not bend even ever so slightly to apologize to the often magnified Cancer ruled mind and emotional traits. The Cancerian will back away from hurtful situations and finds it hard to forget serious quarrels or family disagreements.

Cancer is the forth zodiac sign. Cancer represents the crab sent by the goddess Hera.

As Hercules himself was embattled in his second series of the “Twelve Labors” with the destruction of the nine headed serpent “Hydra”. During the battle the crab was said to have nipped at Hercules’ ankles but was in turn crushed under foot. As the crabs reward Hera is said to have raised it to the heavens.

The Cancer Constellation in the Zodiac! The Cancer Constellation

The Constellation Cancer

The Egyptians saw Cancer as the sacred scarab, a beetle which rolls its dung in the dust, making pellets in which its eggs are laid. The scarab was a symbol of resurrection and immortality; mummies often had a carving of the scarab in place of the heart. The Greek word for scarab is karabos.

In Greek myth, the second labor of Hercules was to slay the many-headed monster Hydra. Hera (Juno) sent a crab to bite the heel of Hercules while he struggled with Hydra. Hercules crushed the crab underfoot; this explains why the crab is the hardest constellation to see, with no bright stars.

Cancer Constellation Stars

If not for the fact that it lies on the Ecliptic, and is therefore part of the zodiac, Cancer would be a rather inconspicuous group of stars. It is home to the relatively nearby Beehive/Praesepe complex of star clusters.

Clearly noted by stargazers as an open cluster of stars, home of Praesepe, also known as the “Beehive Cluster” this is the constellation of Cancer. The cluster is 577 light years away and approximately 730 million years old. The cluster has at least 250 stars and possibly up to as much as 350.
