Cancer star sign: The crab's compatibility, traits and personality explained
Updated: Oct 14, 2022
Cancer season is between 22 June to 22 July. Cancer is a cardinal water sign represented by the crab.
Cancer's ability to exist in both the emotional and material realms is represented by the crustacean who is able to seamlessly weave itself between the sea and shore.
Cancerians are the nurturers of the Western zodiac. They are also sensitive, compassionate, self-protective, loving and tend to have a good sense of humour. Despite their affable demeanour they are very sensitive and don't do well with criticism. They'll avoid confrontation at all costs.
Cancers feel on a very deep level so they tend to be most compatible with their fellow water signs, Pisces and Scorpio. They all share spiritual compatibility and similar values about security, trust, and commitment. Cancer and Scorpio have a particularly strong connection emotionally and physically.
Cancers are extremely romantic and loyal creatures who tend to lead with their heart, which is no bad thing but they need be careful who they choose to trust. They are also highly compatible with Taurus and Virgo. As they are fixed earth signs, they help them to open up quite easily. They share the same qualities of love, sensuality, devotion and loyalty.
Cancers should be wary of relationships with Leo and Aries. These fire signs are too aggressive for their sensitive nature.
