It is fair to say that Cancer is one of the most mysterious Zodiac signs full of extreme contradictions. Compassionate and caring friends, tender lovers and members of family, they can bring anyone to a nervous breakdown with their jealous remarks and never-ending whims. Cancers are of an emotional and intuitive nature and will at times let feelings triumph the words of reason. Being attractively eccentric on one hand, Cancers are sociable creatures who enjoy company and care about their image a lot, both in society and in smaller social contexts. They have no communication communicating and treat people equally which makes them good businessmen. Under their thick shield of hardness and staleness Cancers are mild, sensitive and loving as all the children of the Moon which protects all lovers. However, the connection to the Moon deprives them of the ability to react appropriately to the changes in their environment which turns their lives into an emotional roller-coaster.

Night time is the right time for Cancers. The quiet and mystical atmosphere boosts their creative sides and gives them energy and opportunities for nostalgia, as Cancers have great memory.

Cancers are all about romance. They are passionate lovers who mourn when love fades and relationships break. In a relationship, a high degree of attention is required and will be rewarded with full devotion, care and support. An intuitive deeper connection is searched for – Cancers will not settle for anything else than the special one. That special one is usually a Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces and more rarely a Gemini or a Libra.

Famous people born under Cancer are Lionel Messi, Tom Cruise, Nelson Mandela, Jean-Paul Sartre, and 50 Cent.
