They are very emotional and sensitive, and care deeply about matters of the family and their home. Cancer is sympathetic and attached to people they keep close. Those born with their Sun in Cancer are very loyal and able to empathize with other people's pain and suffering.
The sign of Cancer belongs to theelement of Water, just like Scorpio and Pisces. Guided by emotion and their heart, they could have a hard time blending into the world around them.
