What is the Cancer Zodiac?

Symbolized by The Crab, this zodiac sign is known for showing a strong outer shell and hidden vulnerability. From the pages of myth comes a tale of family chaos. One of Zeus’ many affairs led to the birth of Heracles, one of the greatest Greek heroes. Hera, the wife of Zeus, despised Heracles and wanted him gone. While Heracles was fighting the great Hydra, a crab slipped in and tweaked Heracles’ foot out of love for Hera. He then shattered the crab with one step. However, tt is nearly the end of his story and perfectly represents the self-sacrificing nature of Cancer.

The heart of Cancer energy is domestic, sensitive, feminine, maternal, caring, compassionate, creative, and romantic
