Cancer Ascendants are very sensitive and intelligent, but they may sometimes be nervous or easily stressed. Highly emotional and often psychic, they love pleasure and tend to acquire possessions. At their worst, they can be somewhat stingy; at best, they can be kind, supportive, and honest friends. In spite of their gentle and emphatic nature, they are capable of thinking and acting with vigor. Though Cancer natives are often unlucky in marriage, they are attached and devoted to their children and family. They typically marry a partner who surpasses them in age or overall maturity.
