Happy birthday, Cancer!

The latter half of June through mid-July marks Cancer season. The water sign represented by the crab are highly intuitive beings who may seem cold and distant at first but once you break their shell, they are compassionate and highly sensitive people.

Like their fellow water sign Pisces and Scorpio, Cancers are imaginative and empathic. Cancers are known to be nurturing in nature, so they often take on caregiver roles and through their loyalty they attract friends and are seen as great hosts when it comes to entertaining. On the negative side, Cancers can hold on to grudges and can be secretive, moody, possessive, and clingy.
