People born under the sign of Cancer are highly intuitive and in tune with their own emotions and the emotions of others around them. They are the most comfortable when they're at home with their family or close acquaintances. If you are born under the Cancer sign or know someone who is, then this post is for you. I’m going to share ten juicy secrets of the Cancer personality that you need to know!

1. They are the most charitable of the zodiac

A Cancer is the most caring person you will ever meet, and they are always worried about their loved ones. They have a strong sense of empathy and are the most charitable sign of the zodiac. They have a strong urge to give back because they recognise life is hard, and they are always ready to help anyone in need. Even strangers! They really do have hearts of gold. Their warm natures are too good to be true, and people are likely to take advantage of them. Cancers have a very soft side and like to feel wanted and needed.

2. They are very Hard-working

Because they are driven by their hearts, they're not the type to procrastinate when they are deeply connected to a goal or mission. Unlike some of the zodiacs, they are so dedicated to everything they do and whilst their work is not perfect, it is almost always close to perfect. Because they are naturally very empathetic, people born under the Cancer sign make great psychologists and psychiatrists. They are the sign of home and family, their number goal is to start a family of their own because family means everything to them. So their biggest driver for working hard is to provide a good life for their family or create a business to have more time at home with their family.

3. They Can Get Offended Easily

As mentioned before, people born under the Cancer sign are emotional creatures and can be overly sensitive at times, therefore, they can be offended more easily than the other signs when there is a personality clash. They are very loving and generous people who often treat people as they would like to be treated, but when they see people abuse their trust and disrespect them, they will find it very difficult to forgive them and will not hesitate to hold grudges for a long time.

4. They have high levels of Empathy

Because they are highly emotional and intuitive, they have the unique ability to walk into a room and can feel the emotional states of others. They recognise the struggles of life and have the ability to put themselves in the shoes of others. They won't judge how you feel, instead, they will welcome you with open arms and help you get through this ordeal. They are the most understanding people when it comes to emotions. Even if your reason is not logical, they will still be empathetic. That's one of the reasons it's so easy to talk to them.

5. They are extremely Family Oriented

As mentioned previously, family comes first for them, and there is nothing more important. These crabs of the zodiac are highly loyal to their close family and friends and enjoy spending one-on-one time with their loved ones. Cancers usually have a small, close-knit group of friends they can be really open with rather than an extensive network of acquaintances. These types prefer to spend their spare time doing fun things with their family. They are more likely to live close to their family, and if they live far away, they have no issues with spending money to make regular phone calls when abroad just so that they can stay in touch. Their future goals always include a big family and spending time together. So, if you have a Cancer friend, know that they truly value your friendship like their own family, and they won't trade anything for it.

6. They are old school romantics

Cancers love romance; expect a flower bouquet in one hand and a box of chocolates in the other if you’re going on a date with one. They're pretty old-fashioned when it comes to love and date nights. Nothing matters as long as they're with you, they are selfless with their generosity and their heart, meaning that when they find the right person, they are loyal and committed. It should be no surprise that they are hopeless romantics when considering how family orientated they are. When a Cancer is looking for love, it's essential for Cancers to connect with someone who appreciates this give-and-take lifestyle and is as much an open book as they are.

7. Cancer people are prone to mood swings.

Because they are sensitive and highly complex emotional creatures, they can feel overwhelmed and stressed easily. Minor things can trigger a reaction from them, like if they don’t get their way. They are especially sensitive to lack of sleep or a few days of poor diet. If you come across a Cancer who is having one of their moments, give them room, they will get over it, but they probably need some time and space. This is one of their lessons in life that they need to manage and overcome.

8. They are Creative

Cancers are very creative and imaginative creatures. Who doesn’t know a Cancer that isn’t good at painting or photography? They can draw out what is in the depths of their imagination into reality to bring joy and inspire others. They will make the most boring and mundane things interesting. They always have a creative outlet of some kind, and they will push others around them to explore their creative sides too.

9. They can become Distant

Being some of the most highly emotional of all the zodiac signs and suffering from mood swings easily, they tend to become avoidant and withdraw from the world when they are so overwhelmed by their emotions. Don’t be surprised if they go days without talking about it and put that protective shield around them. This usually happens when they experience something very hurtful, like a breach of trust from someone they know. It may take time for them to return to their normal state. If you have a Cancer friend who has become distant, make sure you give them the space they need to process their emotions and then check in with them.

10. They are Highly Intuitive

Cancers tend to rely more on their intuition than their practical or rational judgment; this is because of their ability to detect intense emotional states and emotional changes in others easily. They will almost always listen to their intuition, so if you’re around a Cancer, you might wonder what their reasoning is before doing something when there seems no logical reason why.
