June 21 - July 22
Cancer is the nurturing homebody of the zodiac and as such, finds home in the Fourth House, the House of Home and Belonging. They are mothering types who show empathy for those around them. This sensitive nature is protected by the Crab's hard shell and they can get critical when that shell is penetrated. Also, there's a tendency to be possessive; once you're in a Cancer's life, you're there for good. The Cancer is the Cardinal Water sign, deriving its desire for change from its emotional nature, a nature that is deeply affected by the Moon, Cancer's ruling planet. Cancer is naturally associated with the breasts.
