You Are Highly Intuitive

You feel everything in your environment—and it usually begins in the pit of your stomach. The slightest nuance can cause you to want to retreat into your safe, quiet place—usually, this is some place within your home. As you grow older, you will work hard to fight this urge when in the face of adversity.

It is not because you are so much afraid of conflict (which you honestly can't stand), it's that many of you don't know how to turn your intuition off. Your body is like a constant antenna, picking up every little vibration within your vicinity. Many people confuse you with being a bit moody, which you certainly can be at times. However, I suspect that your emotional fluctuations have more to do with what is energetically going on around you rather than irrational mood swings.

You would do well to keep a simple emotional journal. Simply jot down each day's emotional climate, make a note of any changes you experience as well as what sorts of events and people were involved. Once you write this information down, you will be able to go back and re-read what you have written later on.

This will allow you to be an objective observer. When you can observe things objectively, you will then be able to discern which emotions belong to you and which belonged to the individuals around you. This sounds silly, but trust me, over time you will begin to become more aware of your intuitive gifts which will, in turn, allow you to control them more easily. Simple meditation exercises will also do wonders for you.

Sun Cancer are born between June 22 to July 22—cusp dates may shift by a few days given the birth year.

You Are A Born Healer

One thing all great healers have in common is that they are sensitive, intuitive souls. If you can get a handle on your emotional nature and learn how your brand of intuition speaks to you, you will have the capability to help others. First, you must heal yourself.

Cancer people wear all sorts of hats and job titles. However, there is one thing you all have in common; people gravitate toward you for comfort, consoling, and guidance; this is where your inner "healer" gets to express itself. You are the universal parent of the zodiac. Others automatically feel at home with you, even if they have never met you before.

Without even knowing it, you exude a very loving, caring, accepting energy around you—whether you are male or female. You make people feel safe, and in turn, this makes them want to open up to you. Regardless of what your day job is, a born healer is your God given gift. This is where you find your inspiration and balance in this thing called "life". Your greatest happiness will be found through taking care of others. Just be sure to take care of yourself first.

You Need a Family Unit

Cancer governs over the family unit. Without family, you are lost. Whether you are male or female, you have a deep inner urge to take care of your family. You feel responsible for their emotional well-being, financial well-being, and physical well-being. To you, this is not a lot of weight to carry; you were born to take care of others. And without anyone to take care of, you would very likely be a self-destructive mess.

If there is one thing about Cancer, it is this; you are not selfish. If anything, you are too selfless. You must learn to take time for yourself, and not see it as being "greedy" or "selfish." When you don't care for your sensitive needs, you can become unbearably cranky, snappy, and off-balance. It is imperative that you take the time you need just to be alone. Security is the primary objective for you, and when you are well-balanced, you are quite literally, a superhero for your family.

Your protective nature is a force to be reckoned with. You will lay down your life if necessary, to protective what you love. Your loyalty knows no bounds hubpages.com/@simplehappylife

You Are Fiercely Protective and Loyal

And while we are on the topic of family, it is important to highlight how protective your nature can be. When it comes to your family, friends, and anything you associate with your home life, you will defend it to the bitter end.

When it comes to your personal adversities, many times, you may find yourself willing to back away and maybe climb back in your shell to be left alone. However, if you feel that anyone close to you is threatened or in danger, people will see a very different side of you. You become a bear, a mama or papa bear to be more exact. Your protective nature is a force to be reckoned with. You will lay down your life if necessary, to protective what you love. Your loyalty knows no bounds.

You Need Daily Peacetime

You spend a great deal of your time worrying for and taking care of those you love. This can be a draining way to live. Intuitively, you feel when retreat is necessary, and as mentioned earlier, if you do not take the proper amount of "you" time, you can be quite difficult to be around.

When I speak of "you" time, I mean something as simple as escaping to your bedroom to relax, soak in a good book, movie, or t.v. show. It doesn't have to be anything fancy or elaborate. In fact, you prefer to keep things as simple as possible. What's going on in your heart and head at all times is excitement enough for you. You just need to etch out a small piece of time each day to just be alone—even if it's just for a couple of hours each evening.

Don't be afraid to express your needs regarding your daily dose of "peacetime" to your loved ones; the more open you are about your emotional state, the more you are aware of your personal nuances and the less likely you will be to lash out at anyone accidentally. They will appreciate your honesty and hopefully will be supportive in giving you the necessary space you so desperately need. This will allow you to recharge your batteries so that you can take on the next day, full force.
