Cancer in Combined Astrology

The Western Zodiac sign of Cancer is nurturing, loyal, and most of all protective. Cancers have a reputation for being moody and insecure, but they are also among the Western Zodiac’s most dependable and caring signs. Emotions run deep for Cancers and they often give so much of themselves to others that there is little love and energy left for themselves. Cancers are self sufficient and self motivated, yet they require regular emotional connections with close friends and family. They consider close friends like family and will always defend anyone they love fiercely.

Some believe that Cancers are overly sensitive, as evidenced by the fact that they are often easily irritated or cranky. Others think that they are too dependent on the love and approval of others. Yet no one can question their dedication to those they love.

Cancer is an unpredictable sign. Many people have a hard time understanding members of this sign because they seem to be a contradiction of personality traits. Cancers are excellent listeners, yet they rarely share their own deepest feelings with others. They want friends and family to trust them them completely, yet they have a hard time trusting others. For a highly emotional sign, Cancers feel most comfortable hiding their feelings behind a wall of pleasantry.

Cancer in Combined Astrology

Combined Astrology is the merging of the 12 signs of the Western zodiac with the 12 animal signs of the Chinese zodiac. I find it a very interesting and accurate form of Astrology and it is perhaps the type that I know the best. Most people are always fascinated when they read their combined sign for the first time. It really does help define who you are, questions that you may have had about yourself that your normal astrological sign hadn’t been able to answer completely can normally be answered using this method. Almost everyone knows there western sign, Aries, Taurus, Gemini etc but not everyone knows about there Chinese sign.

Unlike the western signs, which are taken from the date of your birth, Chinese astrology is more concerned with the year of your birth and each sign begins on the Chinese New Year. There are 12 animals, The Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. Each sign comes around every 12 years, for example I was born in 1978 which was the year of the Horse. The next Horse year after that was in 1990, 12 years later.

The 12 signs of the Chinese Zodiac affect Cancer in different ways. The following analyses show the difference between different kinds of Cancer.
