Do you know why the star sign Cancer is called Cancer? It’s because most crustaceans carry their ‘house’ with them and, metaphorically speaking, this is also what people born in the sign of Cancer are doing: when they love someone or something, they will never let it go.
The other similarity is that lobsters hardly every move straight ahead but only sideways. And also Cancers are generally excellent at manoeuvring: if the road ahead is up, they will find a way to bypass it! The mind of a Cancer is endless, they are excellent at visualising and fantasising with extensive creativity and resourcefulness which is why they can find a way out in most difficult situations.
Cancers never find people and understanding them a problem. They are generally talkative and social, they sense other people’s feelings and moods well and can adapt to them. They are sensitive and empathetic but sometimes also quite fickle. And even though they ‘read’ people very well, their inconstancy makes them largely incomprehensible to others. By the way, Cancer’s leading planet is the changing moon, and therefore they are recommended crystals related with the power of the moon—primarily moonstone and labradorite.
The main element of Cancers is water which is probably also responsible for their skill to adapt well and go with the flow. Typical of all water signs, they have a deep and mystical soul but at the same time a gentle and sensitive nature. Cancer’s softness and femininity resonate magically with the jewellery materials related with the element of water—pearls, coral, seashells and aquamarine.
The most difficult thing for Cancers is sticking to reality. Cancers want to dream and create visions but they often shrink away when things start to get real… Or when they are faced with true realists who casually shatter all their delusions. In order to prevent such shocks, Cancers would benefit from a practically minded friend or companion who will not allow them to drift too high.
As to crystals, they could be helped by smoky quartz and malachite—providing strong balance that keep the wearer gently on the ground. In terms of effect, the crystals are the complete opposite of Cancers but this is exactly what they need to get stronger. In professional terms, Cancers could particularly benefit from carnelian which helps to concretise their lofty ideas so that they could also be implemented.
