A typical Cancerian has a pale rounded face with dark blonde to light brown hair. The eyes are luminous and light colored as well. Body shapes range from short and stocky to tall and extremely thin.
Compassionate and devoted, a positive Cancer trait is love of family. Cancer is the great nurturer of the zodiac, closely aligning themselves with phases of the Moon. They often choose careers in social work.
Cancer values anything from the past, so antique furniture, jewelry or vintage clothing will be sure to please the crab.
Blessed be, Sweet Ones,
