Are you kind? Or maybe just obedient? We'll take a look at the background of Cancers, born between June 21 and July 22, their unique traits, and their compatibility with other signs.
The Background of Cancers (Horoscopes)
In Greek mythology, Cancer is represented by a crab crushed under the foot of the hero Hercules. During a battle against the 9-headed hydra, the crab used its giant pincers to pinch Hercules's toes to save the hydra. Hercules crushed the crab under his foot because he was angered by its insolence. Hera despised Hercules and awarded the crab for attacking him by changing him into a constellation.
Characteristics of Cancers
Cancers have a strong instinct to protect those close to them.
An Over-Protective Mentality
Cancers are very protective. They are very polite, place importance on orderliness, and tend to take a hands-off approach towards others. This is an example of the vast difference between how a Cancer's inner and outer personality can manifest itself.
A True Romantic
Cancers are very loving and supportive, showing a romantic side to intimate partners and going far and beyond for those that are family. However, should something happen that makes a Cancer feel as though their trust has been betrayed. they will feel as if the connection they had thus far was all a lie and take a distant stance towards others, as if they were a stranger. Those who try to convince Cancers through intelligent quips or philosophy will only provoke their ire.
A Need for Personal Space
Cancers don't like to be told what to do and have a tendency to want to work on their own, therefore they tend to do well as business owners. Many Cancers prefer to act on their own as opposed to in a group, placing importance on their alone time and moving freely. They are emotional, and therefore tend to be easily influenced by others. They're also prone to mood swings and tend to act on their emotions.
A Tendency to Be Overcautious
Cancers have a tendency to be awkward and negative. Their mood can turn sour easily, and they have a short temper and can be quite irritated on the inside. On the other hand, they tend to worry a lot and get hurt easily. They feel they can't trust others easily and get deeply hurt when others don't trust them.
