Although strongly conservative, they are fond of amusements and social life. Cancerians enjoy parties, travel and adventure, but sometimes there is nothing better than their homes. They are very home loving, fond of family life and domestic tranquility. They value harmony and happiness.

They are intuitive, organized, creative and over-imaginative. They are very sensitive, but they also have a quick temper. As they are ruled by the moon, their moods can become changeable very easily.

Cancerians have a retentive memory, particularly for emotionally laden events which they can recall in detail for years afterwards. They love the past and never get rid of their old stuff, even if they know it serves for nothing anymore.

Cancerians are very appreciative of art, music and literature and may have themselves artistic and literacy talents. They have a very strong inner-strength and strive to improve their performances by giving their best to get ahead."
