Cancers Are The Least Crabby Of All The Zodiac Signs

If you're that person *everyone* gravitates to when they need some support, whether to talk stuff out or just for a hug, well, it's probably because you're a Cancer.

Sure, your Sun sign doesn’t completely spell out your astrological personality, but it does have a lot to do with the way you think and act, along with other important elements like your natal and progressed charts, your Moon sign, and your Saturn return.

But right now it’s Cancer season (from June 21 through July 22, 2020), which means the personality traits most strongly associated with your sign will shine extra bright over the next month. (And FWIW, Cancer signs are rarely crabby—but more on that in a sec.)

You probably have a solid idea of what it means to be a Cancer from living your life, but there’s some pretty crucial info you might have missed about what exactly it means to identify with your sign. These are the five major traits all Cancers have in common and should know about themselves, plus how they can impact your life, according to Donna Page, a certified astrologer in Atlanta.

1. You’re a born nurturer.

You’re happiest when you have something—or someone—to care for, whether it’s a puppy, person, or plant (hey, succulents need love, too!). In relationships, you’re the one who is always doling out back rubs after a long day or answering late-night emotional support texts. You don’t necessarily get back all of the awesomeness that you give but, in general, you’re okay with that. See? Not crabby at all.

2. You’re not always upfront about your feelings.

Despite the fact that you dole out comfort to people like it’s candy, it can take a little time to squeeze out how you really, truly feel about someone. Why? You’re scared of getting hurt—and fair. Crabs have a hard shell, after all, you've gotta get comfortable before you come out of it.

3. You’re sensitive AF.

You have an amazing ability to understand the emotional needs of people, whether they’re in your inner circle or not. And, with that, you can respond quickly if you feel like someone needs a mental boost. On the flipside, that also means you’re totally prone to bawling whenever you catch an ASPCA commercial on TV. You just have a lot of feelings, and there's nothing wrong with that.

4. You like to collect stuff.

Whether it’s your collection of Beyonce concert tees or your lifelong goal to get every single nail polish color ever made, this is definitely a Cancer thing. You don’t necessarily care how much this stuff is worth—you just really, really like pulling things together.

5. You’re a little reserved.

You’re not shy, per se, but you definitely don’t feel the need to be dancing on tables at 1 a.m. or anything (no judgment to your Gemini friend who does, of course!). While you’re cool with a big social network, you tend to really focus on the smaller crew you know you can trust.
