Tough Exterior Star Sign
People born from June 21 to July 22 fall under the zodiac star sign of Cancer, which is symbolized by a crab. Cancer men and women are highly emotional, but this can be concealed by a seemingly tough exterior. Deep down, they are soft, sensitive creatures and are easily affected by unkind and insensible words. Cancer’s horoscope suggests that people born under this astrology sign are quick to fall into depression, which can be just a phase and not necessarily a permanent state. Cancerians usually have a good sense of humor and can hold their own in entertaining others as well.
Because of their emotional nature, Cancerians are prone to mood swings. They are not impulsive but their emotions can change from one to the other for no particular reason. Other people who are not as sensitive do not seem to know why this is the case, so Cancers thrive best around kind and equally sensitive people. Cancerians tend to form a firm grip on things just like the gripping grasp of the crab that represents this star sign. They prefer not to let things go and tend to carry baggage from the past. Nevertheless, Cancers are marked for their great selflessness.
