Cancer - Llewellyn Worldwide

Here is the next image in the series I did last year for the Llewellyn Worldwide 2014 Astrology Calendar. :)

Cancer: June 22 - July 22. Cardinal water sign. Nurturing, protective, nostalgic, may appear hard on the outside but is sensitive on the inside. Colors: Pearl, blue-green, iridescent blues. Associated with caretakers, family, tradition, boats, lakes and streams, water plants, the moon, and being in tune with natural cycles. I decided to depict this sign as a woman reading a bedtime story to a little girl, floating on the water in a shell-house-boat thing.

You can preorder the calendar if you like, or just check out the rest of Llewellyn Worldwide's offerings at

I realized 50% of all those traits are true for everyone. Same thing for every other sign. It's always partially correct so people keeps falling for it.

I'm a cancer and I believe you depicted us (I mean all Cancers) beautifully and correctly.

My mom is a cancer and this is so her and me when I was younger- Im a libra though. She's the type of person you DO NOT what to make mad, but can be super supportive and kind.Hug 

You captured the sensitive side that cancers have very well.

:love:This is beautiful and serene, I can identify with most of the characteristics of this sign. I was born under the Leo sign, but I feel more connected with Cancer. Is that normal?
