Zodiac Spotlight - Cancer

Today's spotlight is on the fourth sign of the zodiac...Cancer! Cancerians are the nurturers of the zodiac and are known to be kind and caring. Let's find out more about this compassionate water sign.


Cancerians are the most emotional of the zodiac and can sometimes let their emotions get the better of them. They are extremely devoted to their loved ones and form deep connections with their family. The relationships they have with the people they love are incredibly important to Cancerians and they go to great lengths to defend those they hold close. No matter the price, Cancerians will love and protect their friends and family.

The Crab

Cancerians are represented by the crab, which comes from Greek mythology. While Hercules was battling Hydra, Hera sent a giant crab to help the serpent and pinch Hercules, but Hercules (being very strong) killed the crab by smashing its shell. Hera then placed the crab in the night sky to reward it for its courage, which is how it became the constellation for Cancer.


There are obviously many celebrity Cancerians, and they share quite a few personality traits that are associated with this fabulous zodiac sign. Meryl Streep, Ariana Grande, and Chris Pratt are just a few celebs ruled by the crab. Cancerians are known to be very down to earth and chilled. They have beautiful souls and compassionate natures. Cancerians constantly go out of their way to help people.

In a Relationship

Cancerians NEED to know that there is security within their relationship, which means they usually aren't the types to date around, or date multiple people at the same time. They may seem a little bit guarded at first, but this is only because they value an emotional connection more than anything else, and want to make sure they aren't wasting anybody's time.

Lucky Charms

The number one lucky charm for Cancerians are ladybirds! Cancerians are known to love the company of animals, because of their warm and affectionate nature. Ladybirds represent good luck, therefore if a Cancerian sees one, they should know that luck is on their side. Any symbols relating to the home, family, water, or the Moon are also very lucky for Cancerians.
