Cancers are very concerned with their feelings, as well as the feelings of others. The element of water is also all about feelings and imagination. Cancers, as a water sign, can read people's emotions. This can be both a good and bad thing. Cancers can spot insults, even when they are not intended. They can be a little oversensitive at times.
Water signs can be very needy at times. Since Cancers are very nurturing and motherly, they have to work especially hard to maintain their personal boundaries.
Just like looking at an open body of water and seeing an endless world of possibilities, you should look at a Cancer sign and see the same endless possibilities. Cancers are also a cardinal sign, which means that not only are they creative, but also driven and ambitious. They need to nurture their projects, just like they nurture their relationships.
If a water sign is balanced, expect them to be just like water, calm, soft and gentle. They are sensitive to other's feelings and very empathetic. If a water sign is unbalanced and there is an excess of water expect a Cancer to be extremely emotional, apprehensive and sometimes over weight. If the water element is too low a Caner can find it hard to empathise with others. They find it hard to make an emotional connection.
