Cancer - june 21 - july 22
Cancerians are ruled by the Moon - the Great Mother of Heaven in ancient times. Here on Earth, this manifests itself in their maternal instincts in their desire to protect their home. This can seem suffocating at times. The Moon is associated with fertility, too, a quality that is most pleasing to Cancerians. The Moon is also the ruler of moods, and they have a lot of that. These people can cry you a river if they are so inclined, and they usually are. They can be overly sensitive, easily hurt, and prone to swallow their pain. Still, they find it easy to sympathize with others and are quick to show their affection. Their intuition is also a great help to them, especially in times of stress.
