These individuals are also notoriously nurturing, generous, and caring. The energy of Cancer presents many contradictory emotions and behaviors. On the one hand, Cancers are sweet, sympathetic and patient but on the other hand, they can be selfish and snappy. Just like the moon brings about changes in mood, Cancers are known for having strong mood changes while at the same time are the ones with the highest emotional intelligence. Due to their emotional nature, Cancers can often be over-sensitive to the point where people feel like they need to walk on eggshells around them so as not to hurt them. They often hold onto the past and it is very important for them to feel like they belong.
