Are you a Cancer?


June 22-July 22

Gemstone: Pearl

Ruling Planet: Moon

The need to protect the self and the family from threat is one of the chief Cancerian characteristics. Challenge a Cancer in argument and a remarkable self-defense system springs into action. The expression tightens and clouds, a frown quickly appears between the eyes, and there is an instant answer. This is a rather enigmatic zodiac type, but familiarity with a Cancer reveals loving kindness and caring beneath the surface. A high emotional level is combined with very considerable intuition. Parkers’ Astrology

Created on the cusp by Vicky Morgan, Pisces and Cate Shier, Cancer,  Faneuil Branch, Boston Public Library, 1999.
