If you were born June 22 — July 23, you are a Cancer!
If complication in zodiac signs means opposing viewpoints at work in the same personality, then Cancer is truly a thorny person. After all, Cancer is the crab. Crabs move side to side as well as front to back, living both in the water and out of it and, in spite of a generally pacific stance, can be viciously aggressive when provoked. This is, without a doubt, one of the most complex of the Sun signs; understanding them is often difficult. Depth is a keyword for Cancer. Think of the ocean with thermal layer upon thermal layer, each a different temperature and each surging in a different direction. Then you may be able to imagine the Cancer mind!
It can be said that the first three Sun signs, Aries (fire), Taurus (earth), and Gemini (air), are rather simple, having traits that flow around a few central points, making them personalities who are easy to read and understand. Cancer, however, represents the solar calendar’s first complex, emotionally rich personality. His or her feelings are everything — powerful and consuming — the whole world must stop while these feelings are experienced, discussed, and reworked.
Curiously though, Cancer never really wants to discuss your feelings. In fact, the expression of your feelings can be rather a nuisance in conversation. Persist too long with them and the crusty side of the crab will tell you to get over it and move on. Cancers can be quite unpleasant and even drive people away with their seemingly cruel moodiness….
