Born between June 21st and July 22nd, Cancer natives are ruled by the Moon. Their emotions change according to the lunar cycle, which might be difficult to understand, especially if you were born under any of the other signs. Their personality is tenacious and loyal and they are very persuasive individuals. Cancers are interested in art and are highly imaginative.

One of the most noticeable traits of Cancers is their loyalty to those whom they admire and care for, as well as how easily they can convey their feeling. Being moody individuals, they choose hobbies that allow them to express themselves. They are also very sympathetic and enjoy helping people with their own troubles.

People born under Cancer are very in touch with their intuition, and when they have a weird or negative feeling about someone they just met, they are most likely right in feeling that way. While they are not afraid of meeting new people, they are not very keen on being the center of attention nor being surrounded by strangers.

They do enjoy, however, being surrounded by friends and family, especially when they can share a good meal with those they care for. People born under Cancer are also lovers of money and, along with that, they will never say no to having a good laugh, especially when they are having one of their moody days.

Cancers are very loved as friends, especially due to their supportive nature. If you have a Cancer in your life then you will feel nurtured and taken care of, as they are extremely passionate about those whom they care for. People born under Cancer also tend to have a compassionate nature and will be very empathetic towards others.

Gifted with healing power, Cancers are usually very good at understanding the troubles others are going through and will always try their best to help, even if that means just being there by their side. They are also excellent lovers and have an unconditional acceptance of those they care for. Cancers are excellent at helping other people grow as individuals.

Sadly, with some of the strengths Cancers have, there are also some weaknesses associated. They are very dependent on their friends and lovers, and will often have issues when the relationships don’t last. This means that more often than not Cancers will not be able to let go of past relationships, which can cause extreme issues.

They can often become aggressive when things don’t go according to plan. This leads to Cancers becoming passive-aggressive when their issues are directly linked with another person. They will often make indirect remarks to show their frustrations, instead of having an open conversation about their feelings.

Being very good with emotions, a lot of Cancer natives manage to rise to fame as actors. Just look at the list of celebrities here who were born under Cancer - Chris Pratt, Meryl Streep, Linda Cardellini, Busy Philipps, Nick Offerman, Pamela Anderson, Lindsay Lohan, Tom Cruise, Olivia Munn, Tia and Tamera Mowry, and Kevin Bacon.

But Cancer celebrities don’t just focus on acting, as some of them use music to share their feelings, such as Solange Knowles, Ariana Grande, Fantasia Barrino, and Post Malone. Other famous Cancer natives that have made it into the limelight are Khloe Kardashian, Elon Musk, Mike Sorrento, Kevin Hart, Milo Ventimiglia, Tom Hanks, Sofia Vergara, and Will Ferrell.

The love life of Cancer will have a spike in activity in December, especially when Venus enters Sagittarius. This will be the ideal time for Cancers to truly show their colors and interests in a relationship, and take advantage of the sultry environment they will be living in during this period.

Single Cancers who are looking for a new partner should be happy to know that there will be plenty of opportunities in December to actually find the right person. Don’t be afraid to meet new people and to open up to those you feel drawn to, as you may actually be able to find your one true love this month!

There won’t be any changes happening in your financial sector, dear Cancer, as all the planetary influence has been stagnated for the past few months. While there won’t be any surprises in terms of extra income or unexpected expenses, that doesn’t mean that you should stop caring about your own money and what to do with it.

With the new year approaching quickly, this is the ideal time to review your finances and budgets and set your own saving goals for the new year. Go through your previous expenses and see if you are spending more money than you should on unnecessary purchases, and see what optimization you can make in order to start the new year on the right foot.

The family department of Cancer is going to be on a very happy note this December so take this as an opportunity to actually spend some quality time with your family. With the holidays approaching, what better way to end the year than in the company of your closest family members. Ensure that you show how much you love them.

Your relationships with friends might have some trouble this month, so it is important that you keep a diplomatic approach to any issue that arises. You may also want to contact some friends that you haven’t been in touch with to ensure that everything is going well with them and to share your support and love.

The last month of the year will be positive in terms of health for Cancers. There won’t be any major concerns, except for some tiredness that comes along with the stresses of day-to-day life perhaps. To combat this, it is essential that you focus on fueling your body with healthy and nutritious ingredients that are full of vitamins.

Along with healthy meals, we recommend that Cancers pay extra attention to their lifestyle habits this month. This is particularly important in case you live a sedentary life and spend most of your day sitting down. In these cases, Cancers should try to include some light exercise before going to sleep in order to stretch the muscles and recenter themselves.

The uncertainty of what 2021 could bring is something that’s still affecting your energy. No matter how used you’re to this new life that 2020 created, there’s just something about next year that has affected your normally calm atmosphere. Cancer's aura normally manifests pink.

That’s because they are logical, careful creatures that don’t want any kind of drama. In December, you might have to let go a little because any negative energy could affect the great opportunities coming your way. Sometimes, trying to plan as you always do could do more harm. Go with the flow this time to heal replenish your energy.

Cancers’ work-life will be very busy during the last month of 2020. However, this will actually make you feel like your workdays are going by faster, which means that the weekend will arrive sooner! Not all is bad after all! Take these busy days as an opportunity to truly put your heart and passion into your work and you should be rewarded.

This might also be the ideal time to reconnect with some of the less-familiar colleagues. You will benefit from these relationships in the long run; for the time being, you may also become a mentor to one of your more junior coworkers. Do not waste time to help them succeed.

During December, there will be one sign that will truly be compatible with Cancer, and that is Taurus. Both signs are very similar and share the same values and ideals, especially when it comes to romantic relationships. The influence of Venus on both these signs will draw them towards one another like never before.

While their similarities are plenty, there are also some differences between Cancer and Taurus. However, these will only work as magnets that bring them closer together. Each sign has its own strengths that fill in for the other’s weaknesses, making them a couple that just balances each other out. Being two sensitive individuals, they will find comfort in each other’s emotions.

Cancers enjoy having their peaceful lives and being in a stable and secure relationship, which is why their worst match in December will be Aquarius, who enjoys adventure and variety. These two signs might be good friends, but their love connection is not up to par and will eventually leave both individuals in a sad state.

Scorpios and Cancers’ relationships can go from 0 to 100 very quickly. However, during December the calming nature of Cancers will be able to stabilize Scorpios’ intensity. In case you have been developing feelings for a Scorpio, then December might be the ideal time to make your first step and see where it leads you.

It is important, however, to consider that while this month the relationship might be smooth and stable, there will always be some issues regarding both of these two personalities. Being two very emotional signs, it is possible that some heated arguments will arise in the long run, which is why boundaries and expectations should be set early on.

One of the few zodiac signs that don’t seem to be a good match for Cancer is Sagittarius, this happens due to their very similar yet distant nature to one another. While there is a possibility of these two having a relationship and being in love with each other, it is possible that it is one that doesn’t last very long.

During December, it is difficult to see a match happening between a Cancer and a Sagittarius, as these two will be at different points in their lives, and will be better off staying friends. Nevertheless, if you want to develop a loving relationship with a Sagittarius, just be wary that it might not last forever.

When a Cancer meets a Capricorn, their connection is quick and warm. Some might even say that they had met in a previous life, and are once again encountering their loved one. During this month, Cancer and Capricorns will truly connect on a deeper level and will be able to form an incredible relationship.

Nevertheless, it is essential that both individuals accept that they have differences that are intrinsic to each other and that there is no way that such differences can easily be solved. Both have to find a middle ground for their needs and expectations in order to set up a relationship for success.

Being one of the Sun signs, Cancers should avoid Aquarius in December. As mentioned before, they are too different and will bring more stress than happiness in each other’s lives. If you must develop a romantic relationship with an Aquarius, it is crucial that you go into it understanding how difficult it can become.

Image Credits: Pexels / Leah Kelley

Aquarius is fond of meeting new people, not having plans, and living life on a whim, which is something completely opposite to what Cancers like to do. If you dive into this romance, make sure that you understand that your sense of stability and balance will not be prioritized.

Being two Water signs, Cancer and Pisces connect deeply on an emotional level, and this is something particularly true this month. In fact, it might be the best time ever to develop a loving relationship with a Pisces, as the planetary influence will prove to be on your side and aid you in building the foundation for long-lasting love.

Image Credits: Pexels / Daria Shevtsova

One of the few issues that might arise in a connection between a Cancer and a Pisces is that both signs prioritize different types of love and have varied love languages. As such, it is crucial that each person is open about their needs and expectations from their partner in order to ensure that the relationship develops smoothly.

Cancers and Aries appear to come from different planets. As such, if a relationship between these two is going to work, it is imperative that each person accepts their differences and is open to making changes in their own behavior as well as accepting the fact that they are not as similar as they want to be.

Image Credits: Pexels / Arthur Brognoli

In this December, it might be easier to truly fall in love with one another, but it is still crucial that honest and open conversations take place between the two before both of you dive deeper into a committed relationship. Accepting the differences, or making sure that your priorities are set straight, will go a long way.

As mentioned before, this December is the ideal month to build a loving relationship with someone that was born under Taurus. The planetary influence will allow both signs to truly connect on a deeper level than ever before, which will set the grounds for a long-lasting and happy relationship.

Image Credits: Pexels / Helena Lopes

While it is certain that these two will have a positive experience together, it is still ideal that some caution is taken, especially during the beginning of the relationship itself. Each person should be candid about their long term expectations and establish their own priorities as individuals before taking the relationship further.

While Cancer and Gemini can be excellent friends, the same can’t be said about a romantic relationship. Cancers need stability and structure, while Geminis disdain anything that stops them from feeling free and independent. This December will be no different, as both signs will be feeling like they just can’t understand one another.

Image Credits: Pexels / mali maeder

During this month, however, it is recommended that Cancers develop a friendship with a Gemini, as it will be beneficial for them to learn about each other and find a common ground despite the differences. While it will never work out as romantic partners, they can still become the best of friends.

December is the perfect month for a relationship with a fellow Cancer, and the reason lies in the emotional connection that both individuals will feel. You will both easily understand what the other expects from a relationship as well as their modes of thinking, which will allow for a romantic connection to flourish easily.

Moreover, during the rest of the year, Cancers will have some struggles that will make them feel more stressed than usual, so what is better than a partner that truly understands what you are going through? Two Cancers will have a long-lasting emotional connection that will make them feel safe and secure.

While sometimes a Leo and a Cancer can become close, this month is not one of those times. Each sign will be facing their own demons and will not be able to accept that they are different individuals who are living in their own reality. Cancers’ emotional needs will not be met by a Leo, especially this December.

Image Credits: Pexels /

These two signs will have several arguments if they get together during this month, as they will not be able to grasp what the other is trying to communicate, and might even take things out of context. The stresses that will come with a pairing between a Cancer and a Leo are not worth it.

Cancers and Virgos will have a wonderful understanding of each other this December. They are two emotional and vulnerable signs that can find comfort in one another, and will be able to truly connect in an emotional way. Cancers will also find safety in being with someone that shares the same ideas and values.

Likewise, Virgos will be able to truly express their emotions without being fearful of shame or misunderstandings, as on the other side of the conversation there will be an equally emotional being. These two signs will have one of the most loving relationships of the Zodiac, so take advantage of it!

While a Cancer and a Libra can be in a relationship together, it is crucial that there are some honest heart-to-heart conversations before they seal the deal. Both people will be looking for something different in terms of a romantic relationship, and both will expect different things from a loving partner. 

Image Credits: Pexels / Emma Bauso

As such, it is important that these expectations are clear from the start. Cancers’ emotional availability will also prove to be a strong point in a relationship with a Libra, who sometimes is too afraid of opening up emotionally. This will be a good relationship for both signs to develop different aspects of themselves.

Cancers are very imaginative and enjoy doing things for others. A way to put those passions together in a hobby is to create some artwork such as painting or drawing. This will allow the Cancer native to truly express their feelings in a beautiful manner.

Another passion of Cancers is food, being this the reason why cooking or baking could be an excellent hobby for natives of this sign. You can start by experimenting with new recipes and even create your own little side business. Putting passion and work together is something that Cancers know a lot about!

For the Cancers who enjoy reading, we have selected a few book recommendations that would be an excellent addition to your reading list this month. Books such as “Together” by Judy Goldman, “Brave, Not Perfect” by Reshma Saujani, and “The Best Kind of People” by Zoe Whittall will spark up your interest!

Other options that are also good matches for Cancers are “Oksana Behave!” by Maria Kuznetsova, “Like She Owns the Place” by Cara Alwill Leyba, “City of Girls” by Elizabeth Gilbert, “Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens, and “The Lost Night” by Andrea Bartz.

The year is coming to an end, but it will finish on a positive note for Cancers. There will still be some challenges to overcome, but you will notice how happy you will feel this month. This is the ideal time to consider what you want to do in the upcoming year and make peace with the past.
