Unravelling the Mysteries of Cancer: Surprisingly Powerful People
Represented by the Crab and ruled by the Moon, Cancer is known as one of the most sensitive signs of the zodiac. Associated with the element of Water, Cancer is really emotional, intense, compassionate, sweet, and caring sign. People born under this zodiac sign are highly intuitive and can easily pick up other people's energies. They're also very vulnerable and self-protective just like their celestial animal, so when something bad happens or someone hurts them deeply, they tend to hide behind their thick and hard shells. However, they're some of the most gentle and caring creatures who are also incredibly loyal, committed, and protective of their loved ones.
Why are Cancer So Emotionally Powerful?
But, have you ever wondered why are Cancer so intense and emotional? What it is exactly that makes them so highly sensitive?
Those born under the sign of Cancer are ruled by the emotional Moon and therefore they're considered to be the most empathetic people of the zodiac. They feel things more deeply and more powerfully than the other signs of the zodiac. Cancerians are very compassionate, highly intuitive, and able to understand the emotions of others, which makes them great communicators who are always able to create a strong and tight-knit bond with people. They crave deep and emotional relationships and friendships and are extremely loyal, dedicated and loving people.
However, their gift of emotional understanding tends to act like a double-edged sword in their relationships sometimes. This means that even though they're very understanding, caring, and emotionally sensitive, on the other side they can also be easily hurt and angered because they always feel things deeply and wear their heart on their sleeve. Therefore, they find it hard to open up to people who don't understand them. They have a hard time trusting others, so they will often hide their emotions from the world in order to avoid being hurt or rejected. On the flip side, they're also very powerful creatures, so they will always fight and stand up for what they believe in.
Why are Cancer So Sensitive?
Cancer is a Water sign, so despite their tough exterior, people born under this sign tend to have a very soft heart inside. They're overly sensitive and nurturing individuals who are easily hurt and feel everything deeply. They're receptive, kind, generous, and are capable of huge empathy towards other people.
They can definitely be moody and unpredictable due to their ruling planet, the Moon, but if you win their trust, you will ensure a lifetime of unconditional love, friendship, protection, and support. Also, because they're so sensitive, they can be really clingy, snappy, and even possessive of their loved ones. They can shut people out and retreat in their shell whenever they feel misunderstood or uncomfortable around them. Cancerians can be huge cry babies, especially when things are not going the way they want it.
Why are Cancer So Afraid of Spotlight?
Since Cancerians are so sensitive, vulnerable, and easily hurt, they often tend to hide behind their hard crab shells. They're friendly, sentimental, and warmhearted, but they're always extra cautious, especially when they're around new people. They're family-oriented homebodies who prefer the company of their family and close friends over those of acquaintances. Due to the Moon's influence over this zodiac sign, Cancerians tend to be very shy and mysterious people who don't like to be in the spotlight. In fact, Cancerians hate it when the spotlight is on them because then they feel very awkward and uncomfortable.
