The Moon is very inconstant, it changes its phases 4 times during one cycle (28 days) making her children very emotional, sensual people that tend to follow their moods. When in a positive moon cycle, they look just like the "little girl that had a little curl in the middle of her forehead: when she was good, she was very, very good, when she was bad, she was horrid".
Cancers are very shy and more afraid of being denied than all other signs put together. However, they are the same ambitious as Capricorns, their astrological opposite. But unlike Capricorns, they never choose the direct way to success. They move slowly, advancing inch by inch to the desired object to grasp it unexpectedly and never let it go. The Moon rules the woman that is why the Cancer-born women feel completely at ease and the Cancer-born men, whether manly enough or not, have many qualities of a female character. Cancer-born men are not so aggressive in love life as those born under other signs, but often wear a pretty mask of innocence to have the woman make the first step.
However, do not be consider this sign to be weak and indecisive. The USA were born under the sign of Cancer, as well as New York with its Wall Street, the financial capital of the world. Comparing Cancers with the US, we may see that both can use money as a means of controlling the situation: this country has financial connections with practically every country in the world.
Cancer is a comfort-loving sign. It rules the Fourth House of the Horoscope, which is why the house and different household things are very important to the Cancer-born. It is in their nature to get a safe place first, and only then start acting. Cancer rules the stomach, which explains why New York has such a great number of cafes and restaurants.
Cancers are very suspicious and rarely show their inner "self" both in love and business affairs if they are not self-confident enough.
Cancer is a very deep sign. Cancers tend to be true to the ideals of their youth and often feel nostalgia for the past, particularly, for their childhood. It's not uncommon that men born under the sign of Cancer live at home with their mothers longer than anyone else.
A Cancer needs sympathy of people he or she is talking to, they simply cannot stand sarcasm or severe critics, whether they deserve it or not.
Although Cancers love their home, they also like travelling, especially, going on sea voyages.
If a Cancer-born person flows into a rage, (which is quite rare), he or she may occasionally use violence. The Moon rules all liquids, so the Cancers ought to be careful about drinking too much alcohol.
Positive, accomplished types of a Cancer may be loyal, and many of them are true patriots of their countries. They may also be romantic and self-denying. Thanks to the strong instinct of self-protection, Cancers have a great potential of a finance genius.
