As a mother of Cancer baby, I couldn’t ignore the first signs of Cancer personality. At the age of 10 months, he already had his own pet: a puppet he adopted just to visit and nurture everyday. He was happy and excited to see it and you could see the strong sense of duty he felt towards it: there wasn’t a day he forgot or ignored the puppet.
Being born under the sign of Cancer, this instinct of having and taking care of something is not surprising. Cancers define themselves by other creatures they take care of and by who and what they are faithfull to. That is why you would often hear the words “Family” and “Patriotism” in relation to Cancer Sun, Moon or AC people.
In combination with a lot of air in the personal chart, or when Uranus is strong, people with dominant Cancer will be faithful to ideals and ideas and define themselves by activism, voulantaring for society or a cause. When a lot of fire is presense in the chart, or with dominant Mars, these people will devote themselves to doing and making, or in other words you may see a workoholic here. When earth is strong in natal chart, the main loyalty will be to structures, routines and heritages: here you will see people who care about their and their loved ones routine, nurture the physical self (body) and the imidiate surounding. and with lots of water these people usually become family oriented, full of self motivation and inner drive. These will be focused in whatever other parts of the chart, such as Mars’, Mars ruler’s, planets in 10th house and 10th ruler’s location and aspects indicate.
