The Zodiac glyph is the Crab, which is symbolic of being security oriented, protective, tenacious, and industrious. The shell of the crab further implies that Cancer born people are often somewhat hard on the outside, yet very soft and vulnerable inside. The Sign of mother, Cancer is also concerned with nurturing and caring for others, and are usually very empathetic and often found in nursing roles or keeping the family together. Highly sensitive emotionally, Cancer people are prone to changeable moods due to the rapid movement of the Moon. Taking things too personally and being overly subjective are common issues to overcome. Over protectiveness of self and others is also a challenge. Positively, Cancer as a Sun sign denotes a warm, caring, devoted personality with a good sense of humour and a fine palette indicative of their notorious love of rich foods and wine. Proactive and dutiful, and wanting to feel secure above all is a formula reflective of the fact that more millionaires are born under the Sign of Cancer than any other.
