General Description: The Sun enters Cancer, the 4th Sign in the Zodiac, around the 21st of June every year. The Crabs are extremely intuitive and emotional, and possess a profound maternal instinct and take great pleasures in the comforts of their home and family. It is not easy to understand the Cancer, as these extremely introvert individuals take time to open up and often hide their actual emotions beneath their tough outer shell. That is why, they run the risk of being perceived as arrogant and impolite people who are not sensitive to the feelings of others.
