Cancer

The 4th sign of the zodiac is a cardinal, water sign ruled by the Moon. Its glyph is said to represent the claws of a crab. Cancer is associated with the breasts and stomach, and Cancerians are best known for their attachment to their homes and to their more nurturing parent.

They are very sensitive and moody individuals who retreat into their shell when their emotions are challenged. Food can represent emotional security to a Cancer. We caution that much of this description does not take into account other factors in the chart.
