Editor's note: this image is illustrated in the book Sun Signs from a Polar Star: A Northern Zodiac.

The association of Cancer the crab with water and the moon is very ancient. Here Cancer is shown as a Dungeness crab holding an arctic moon in her claws while fishes swim in the sky and stars shine in the water.

Cancer people are imaginative, sympathetic with strong empathetic feeling for others. They are closely attached to home and family and very protective. They are generally thrifty, sensible but with great emotional resources.
