The little crab (the symbol for CANCER), is affectionately known as the home body of the signs. Why is that? Well, a well-aspected, (Astrology lingo) CANCER in a chart usually means that this individual enjoys food, (at the very least) and loves to cook, (at the very most). To them, The smell of good food is like perfume is to most others. Home is important to CANCERS and they try to keep their families cooperative, close to each other, and at home. Since family is so important, these folks can be the original "Godfathers". Scary stuff? If you realise that every action is done with the family in mind, then all this makes sense. When children grow up and leave the nest, CANCER parents have a very hard time letting go.
CANCERS have a natural talent for making "big bucks". They have more aptitude for making a million than any other sign. The crabs have very good memories for historical dates, and schemes that lesser men have given up on. They can often capitalize on forgotten ideas and make themselves a fortune.
Fondness for food, having a lot of money and rich tastes can lead to a weight problem. Merv Griffin is a CANCER, and most of his conversations centered around how much money his guests were making and how many pounds he lost. Phyllis Diller, another CANCER, pokes fun at her husband and her cooking.
This is a sensitive, emotional sign. Sometimes they look as if they are on the verge of tears with their sad eyes. Sentimental music can cause them to weap buckets full, however, they really don't like anyone to see this soft side.
Notable CANCERS include Tom Cruse, Silvester Stallone, Michelle Lee, Ringo Starr, and Mick Fleetwood.
Every Astrological sign has dominance over a part of the body. CANCER rules the breasts, chest, and the stomach. The first place CANCERS gain weight is on the stomach. Many female CANCERS are rather busty. The males have a hard time keeping their eyes off your chest, (if you are female, of course). Many CANCERS have a unique walk which can be best described as a scuttle.
