Cancer Personality Traits
While talking about the Cancerians, their nature of being attached to family is not to be ignored because they are known for their loving heart. Male Cancerians are quite good men and attached to family; female Cancerians are very caring and maternal. Just like their astrological symbol crab which has a hard shell but soft inner heart, the Cancerians know well enough how to protect themselves. Since Cancer is a water sign, the Cancerians are emotional and have a good memory, so they often hold a grudge for the trivial matters but they are very thoughtful and kind to the one they love.
The ruling planet of Cancer is the moon which will affect the mood and digestive system of the Cancerians. If you are not familiar with the Cancerians, you will be misled by the first impression as they often try their best to protect themselves and never open to others easily; after knowing them further, however, you will find they are good people.
In the twelve astrological signs, the Cancerians are the most persistent people and they are loyal and dedicated to their friends and loved ones. They attach great importance to their family and love to collect things; they are reluctant to abandon anything and have a good taste for beautiful things.
Since Cancerians are emotional, they will tell the truth when they are happy and tell a lie when they are unhappy, thus often inconsistent. Many Cancerians are shrewd and good at reading others' mind and they can even tell different lies to different people. This explains why many successful businessmen are of the Cancer sign.
