Personality Traits of Cancer: Our birthday greetings to all of you born under the sign of Cancer one of the most caring and nurturing, but also emotional and moody signs of the Zodiac! Being a Water sign and also “ruled” by the Moon, they seem to respond to some kind of emotional tides! They are often involved in counseling, guiding and helping others. They use their moods almost as a form of communication. They have a sentimental attachment to everything around them including memories and love matters.
However, they are basically self-oriented and like to get things their way. Being a Water sign, they use moods to control others and emotional blackmail “after all that I have done for you…”! All water signs play games (including Scorpio and Pisces), but Cancer stays in them longer. Cancers need a lot of emotional security and affection.
They usually have managerial abilities and tend to grow on people. They are naturally intuitive and take the time to understand others. Although gourmet cooking, family and home are all important to them, this depends on other planets in Cancer (especially Venus).
Those with Venus in Cancer can be somewhat clinging and only need to be involved with those who do not mind too much affection. Venus in Cancer is compatible with Venus in Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces.
Some of the people born under the sign of Cancer are Gina Lollobrigida, Natalie Wood, Phyllis Diller, Bill Cosby and Princess Diana.
