Star Signs - It's Cancer's time

Historically the sign of the summer solstice (which now occurs under Taurus), Cancer is the fourth sign of the Zodiac. As the constellation has represented several different creatures in different times and different cultures – from a turtle or scarab beetle to a crayfish - it is little wonder that those born under the sign are thought to embody an array of characteristics!

Caring, compassionate, loyal and settled, Cancerians love their creature comforts. Sometimes seen as eccentric, these mercurial sorts tend to present their best side to the people they know best, often appearing unapproachable or hard to new people. Much like their symbolic animal, Cancerians can present a tough exterior to the world and can defend themselves – the crab’s legendary claws replaced by a biting and quick tongue (though only when required).  Astrologers have long attributed Cancer’s changeable moods to the fact that the sign is ruled by the Moon, with links further enhanced by the fact the sign’s gem is the ethereally beautiful Moonstone. As a water sign, those born under Cancer are yet more artistic in their temperament.

Ultimately desiring intimacy and security, Cancerians are steadfast partners, but never boring ones, as their unpredictable nature makes for passionate lovers. The list of celebrities who share this star sign just seeks to emphasize how diverse and how successful the personalities it presides over can be: Prince William, Cheryl Cole, Tom Hanks, Liv Tyler, Lindsay Lohan, Tom Cruise, Selena Gomez, Benedict Cumberbatch and Sylvester Stallone are all Cancerians.

Like the constellation for which it is named, the star sign Cancer has been fascinating humankind for generations – Cancerians are much the same, always just out of reach and always evading our full understanding.
