Cancer in Vedic astrology is considered to be a moving sign very much related to family and emotionality. It is literally filled with all the inner feelings and experiences that the Moon, the patroness of the sign, gives it.
As expected, in such a situation, Cancer is primarily focused on family values and home comfort, always deeply feels inside himself any, in his opinion, injustice, wants to give care and support to relatives, but in return requires the same.
Cancerians carry their perception of family values far beyond the family. This can be felt, for example, in a work team or among friends. Interestingly, people born under the sign of Cancer feel good about others, and behave like their expectations. It is logical that Cancers have good intuition, but it depends on the mood. Very often, people born under this sign can behave perfectly, silently fulfilling the whims of their loved one, and then the opposite happens abruptly: they turn into capricious offended individuals who recall all insults, even children’s, and nothing can pull them out of a dull states, until the Moon allows you to exhale and no longer feel thrown to the mercy of the whole world.
