THE CANCER OUTER SELF
Cancers. like sea creatures, live in an ocean of feelings. Their first concern is maintaining their comfort and only then can they relax and enjoy life. Cancers often find themselves in roles of protecting and nurturing others. At their best they are incredibly warm, tender and responsive, but unappreciated, they become irritable and withdrawn. Cancers always support their family or homeland. They can be provincial or narrow in their beliefs and their political leanings lean toward the conservative. They act suspiciously to strangers and form new relationships slowly. Most of their decisions are based upon personal impressions rather than reasoning. Being extremely sensitive, Cancers unconsciously ride the moods around them. They enjoy visiting rivers, lakes and oceans, especially if they cannot live near these large bodies of water.
