Cancers Ladies Really Feel It!

It's the end of the Cancer season, and it's time for my tribute. I have Cancers all around me, so I know them pretty well. My dad is a Cancer, my step-dad is a Cancer, my two sisters are Cancers, my father-in-law is a Cancer. I have a bunch of Cancers around me, and they are fun.

Because Cancers love, love, love emotions, they are the funniest people I know. I find myself laughing at something a Cancer said to me (in all seriousness I might add) years and years later. They have a perspective on life that evokes hilarity. I mean they really crack me up. On the flip side of that, they also have a side of them that evokes anger, especially the ones born in July. July Cancers can be true crabs, in that they like to stir up sh*t. They take pleasure in getting a bunch of drama created among others, and stepping back to see emotional reactions fly. Once in awhile I fall victim to this kind of drama mostly at the hands of my oldest sister, one of my best friends. I call her the "sh*t stirrer" because she gets crabby (when she's not making me laugh), and starts carrying stories back and forth, telling small lies, and causing all kinds of drama. In the end, I usually laugh at her and myself for allowing myself to be tricked into some mess once again.

Cancers love things to stay the same. Status quo all the way for them. They like to cook and eat the same things, stay in the same place, keep the same friends, and work the same job. They are loyal to whatever they start, and it takes a lot to pry them away from it. They also collect wonderful little things, and find it very difficult to let them go.

Because Cancers love emotions so much they are very creative. They are also extremely intuitive and deep. If you are looking for the answer to a interpersonal situation, a Cancer can help you see the light. Their emotional leanings can also cause them to become, so sad that it resembles clinical depression. The only thing that makes their sadness different from clinical depression, is that another emotion like anger or extreme happiness or some other drama scene can lift them from their sadness instantaneously. They move on to the next emotion as though they were never ever sad. On to the next emotional adventure.

I have an extremely deep bloggy friend Tameka, over at Tea and Honey Bread. She is one of the most gifted writers I've met. I Just love her writing and her point of view. Please go over and check her out, you will not be disappointed. Happy Birthday Tameka!

Here are some famous Cancers.

Carly Simon is a very gifted songwriter. I am sure her ability to feel emotions stronger than the rest of us made her such a successful writer.

Michelle Kwan is an accomplished Ice Skater.

Lil' Kim, Lil' Kim, Lil' Kim...

Cyndi Lauper a famous singer. She came on the scene about the same time as Madonna.

Jessica Simpson, actress, singer and songwriter. She has been photographed on more than one occasion crying or arguing with a boyfriend.

LOVE this! My sister is a Cancer and defintely is not afraid of confrontation (but you are so right on the change thing), lol! Tameka is so awesome too, so I agree that people should check out her blog!

These are always so on target and because I'm a Cyndi Lauper fan...she was just before Madonna and really a true talent. I love how she's evolved too. No knock on Madonna at all, but Cyndi was solid from the beginning and she's still tough and beautiful :)

*Screaming* So, I'm reading and I'm thinking, "Oh my she's got me pegged", and then right there I see my name! Yay for Cancers! We truly are a special breed. Life here, in The House of Cancer and The Lone Scorpio is novel-worthy!

Thanks for the kind words and birthday shout out, you're the best, Brooke!

I know I'm late to your post. This is my first time visiting your page. You missed some legendary Cancers...Bill Cosby, Lena Horne and Derek Jeter(I'm a yankee fan). I'm also a Cancer and I'm not afraid of confrontation. My two best friends are Cancers as well. The only thing I found to be different was the change aspect. I've moved from Buffalo to Richmond to DC to Houston to NYC. I'm not afraid of change at all. I actually welcome it. I hate staying in a job that's not going to challenge me. If I remain stagnant for too long. I'm out! For me other than the change you hit Cancers right on the nose!
