Cancers are the Caretakers of the zodiac. They have very similar motherly and fatherly like characteristics. As a water sign, their emotions flow with them in whatever they do. It seems as if almost nothing can offend a cancer. When they are angered they show it in the most harmless way possible. That does not mean cancers are weak and are incapable of taking care of business, though cancers don’t usually want to be involved with conflict. Like their symbol, the crab, they are very shy when first interacted with and will usually stay hidden under their shell. Though, once you stay long enough around them and wait for them to come out of their shell, they will open up to you. As a Friend, they are the most sympathetic, sensual, faithful, caring, and loving. Though when things just don’t go right they can be moody and over-reactive. They will show their other side of crabbiness. If you know what I mean. Haha, just kidding. Cancers are the cardinal sign of the water signs, they can be a good leader if needed; they are protective and helpful. As the caretakers, they are known to nurture many of those who come across to meet them. They listen to their heart no matter what. Once their intuition tells them something they will listen. Like most water signs, their intuitions are powerful.

They also have the best memories they will never forget anything, whether good or bad. Cancers are the most underestimated zodiac signs but don't underestimate them they are tough and you better beware. They can sting like a bee, and the same goes for becoming a crab's friend. They'll never forget it and will be sure to pay you back one day.

When looking for a partner, a cancer needs someone who's a strong protecter. Someone who won't leave their side and who can be their support for all the emotions that swell up inside them. Cancers do so much nurturing that they also need to be nurtured themselves and that's just what a great partner can do for them. Cancers relate to crabs and to their nature, Crabs don’t socialize to others too often…. and need privacy, Cancers need privacy, Other Energetic signs won’t do for Cancer, Serious zodiacs like Scorpio would do
