Description: The crab, with its soft fleshy body covered by a hard protective shell, depicts the nature of this sign. Cancer is the embodiment of compassion, caring and maternal instincts but it often hides these emotions behind a mask of indifference. When upset, Cancers withdraw into their shells but have sharp pinchers to attack with. Cancers are renowned homemakers and require domestic stability for happiness. As long as Cancers have a strong base from which to operate and to which they can retreat, they will succeed and reach their goals.
