Cancer is the fourth sign of the Zodiac

You are an emotional person, very sensitive, imaginative and romantic, inclined to be retiring, and very generous. Your characteristics are unlike those of others born under any other sign, and absolutely peculiar to you. On the one hand, you are full of rather attractive little idiosyncrasies, and on the other you are sticklers for convention.

At all times you like to be noticed and although you have an unassuming attitude, it is never difficult to bring you forward. Once angered, you can be most contrary. This in turn can lead to extreme irritability and peevishness unless you have your temper well under control. Your greatest faults are indecision and hesitation. You can at times be exasperating until you have learnt to get over this hurdle. Once you have, you will be able to get your own way through will-power and perseverance and by means of gentle persuasion rather than irritatingly persistent reminders. You can be tireless and ambitious, although you can also be sluggish and lazy. You have one thing in common with other Cancer subjects, and that is your love of antiques, and indeed anything known to be of great age. You are gifted with an extremely acute memory.

If you were born between June 22nd and 30th you are the most sensitive types. When you have an ambition, you can be steadily persistent until it is achieved.

If you were born between July 1st and 10th you belong to the most spectacular group of the sign. You are good-looking with a strong physique, you have the gift of possessing a terrific hold on life and it is difficult not to grant you your own way because when you put yourself out you can be extremely persuasive. Malice is not unknown to you, and you can be rather dangerous if upset. You are inclined to be unforgiving by nature, and are capable of great jealousy too.

If you were born between July 11th and 20th, you belong to the group who are usually the nicest people of the Cancer subjects, for you are sympathetic and kind-hearted. Normally you do ‘see your ship come home’ but have to wait until rather late in life for this.

It is a known fact that you would make a good nurse, manager, caterer or manufacturer. Cancer is a watery sign and probably you are a good sailor. It is likely that you will do very well financially at some stage in life. You are not very strong. The stomach is inclined to give the most trouble, especially when you are worried. Indigestion and rheumatism are not unknown to you and when under strain at any time you appear to give way rather easily.

Partnerships/Marriage: You invariably meet with great success and happiness if you select a partner from Scorpio (born between October 24th and November 20th ) or Pisces (February 19th to March 20th). It is just as well for you to remember that you are taking a big chance if you decide to partner up with an Aries subject (born between March 21st and April 19th).

Should you choose a Scorpio subject, then you can expect to be mated to a rather dogmatic, possessive type of person. Scorpio subjects, if they think it necessary, cast everybody else out of their lives in order to concentrate on their mates, wishing to protect their own at all times, and they are inclined to be over-ambitious for anyone who belongs to them. Should your choice fall upon one of this sign, you should remember always that there will be times when you will have to choose your words carefully because, since Scorpio subjects are sensitive, they do not forget easily when they are upset and may well indulge in a session of sulks. .

Should your choice be for a Pisces subject, then you can expect a really fine marriage, for your partner will be receptive and very impressionable. Pisces subjects are neither very determined nor very persistent, and their cautions should be respected. They tend to get depressed and like to be cheered up. If these things are borne in mind you cannot do better than to choose a Pisces subject as a partner this includes a business partner too.
