Cancerians are known for their virtues like loyalty, emotional depth, and their parenting instincts.

Thus, messing with Cancer natives may be dangerous as they do not know to forget and forgive. This instinctive ability to sniff out secrets can also make them a tad over-sensitive.

No star sign is more loyal than Cancer, they would not hesitate to die for love and kill for hate. They are love blind. Cancerians like to live where they grew up, surrounded by their family, old pals, and relatives. If their feelings have hurt that wound will never heal. They’ll take the grudge to the grave and their warm-hearted nature can warp into a dark, and they can be cruel and revengeful. When the mood is on the up, Cancerians can be wonderful company and magical partners. Funny, passionate, insightful, adventurous, and indulgent, they know how to have a good time. They are not like this all the time because when that moon phase changes… another side of them may emerge. The side that demands payback for their loyalty. Cancerians are very fragile. They like the sympathy of others, often presenting themselves as mistreated or wounded, and will go to great lengths to ensure they are getting the attention/support/encouragement they truly believe they deserve.
