The mother, the healer, the invisible woman (or man). This is Cancer. A sign that takes the phrase “I feel” to a new level. Cancers are a water sign, but they are the cardinal water sign which means they are the ones who can push through and make things happen. There is a vulnerability to you that is always present, but there is also a strength that is so beautiful.
If you have a lot of Cancer energy in your chart (especially if it’s your Rising or Moon sign) then you have a very sensitive system. The receptivity of Cancer carries over to the body when it falls in your first house or your moon. Cancer rules the breasts and the stomach so these areas are something to always pay attention to (especially when you are feeling extra anxious or worried). Digestive health is going to be the focus of health for any Crabs out there. Some the best ways you can improve this area of the body is:
- Solar Plexus Meditations
Exercises that engage the core like swimming, Yoga, Pilates, and dance
Keeping your gut health with whole foods & quality probiotics.
Cancers are the emotional eaters of the zodiac so it is important for you to be aware of what & why you are putting something into your body. Is it because you know it will nourish you or do you really just want to numb out on some hard-core sugar….and then feel guilty about it (Cancer can carry some guilt!)? Most water signs feel uncomfortable being in their body, but they deal with it in different ways. Cancer usually uses food to comfort. This isn’t always a bad thing, sometimes feeding yourself something you want can be a cathartic experience. The important thing for you to remember is that you do it consciously. Don’t get in the “habit” of eating something just because it comforts you.
Foods that Support Cancer:

Essential Oils for Cancer:
Cancers are the true healers of the Zodiac. They embrace and contain the energy around them. This makes them truly magical. It’s not an easy job, but such an important one. Remember my beautiful Cancer friends, don’t get lost in your feelings or the feelings of others. There is a strength in you that can carry the weight, but you don’t have to carry all of it. By giving yourself proper boundaries, you will help save the world…..seriously.
