Cancer is the most diversified
character of the Zodiac, and might anything from shy and withdrawn to rather extrovert. But what you all have in common is
your conservative, traditional and home-loving nature. You feel strongly about maintaining the family bonds, and you are often
interested in genealogy. You are not unsociable, but you have a great urge to be alone sometimes. Outwards, you might seem
thick-skinned, insensitive, uncompromising, unshakable, single-minded, energetic, sly, intuitive, wise and philosophical.
But on the inside, you might be rather different – kind and compassionate, especially towards those who you are really
close to. You are emotional and imaginative and you are good at reading other people’s feelings. Often, you have an
all too lively imagination, and you have big romantic fantasy on life which you try to live up to.
You like art and literature,
and especially drama. You might also have large literary, artistic and rhetoric talents. And even though you might give an
impression of being down-to-earth, you are often interested in the supernatural.
You might be dishevelled,
grumpy, twisty and moody. Often you are self-pitying, and you might feel insulted even when there is really no reason. Sometimes
you might have violent outbreaks of rage, seemingly without reason. But you are also easily feeling flattered. You are ambitious,
although sometimes tactless and difficult.
You are well suited for many
different professions, especially thanks to your excellent working spirit and devotion. You might be a skilful writer or journalist.
You might also be a politician, even if you as such prefer being in the background rather than in the spotlight. You might
work with helping and supporting other, for example in social care, nursing or delivery work. You might also be an excellent
cook. You might be a successful businessperson or industrial leader. You romantic side and your interest in history might
lead you into working in a second hand shop or as an expert on antiquities. But more commonly, you work as a broker, gardener
In a relationship, you are
a mixture between hard and soft. You are loyal, emotional and romantic and you are very dependant on feeling safe. You are
very protective towards your loved ones. You love to give, and do not ask for much in return. You might, however, sometimes
be overly patriotic, and cold and suspicious towards outsiders.
You have a sharp memory,
especially when it comes to events involving strong feelings, which you might remember in detail many years later. Since you
are living so intensely in your memory and your imagination, old feelings might suddenly blossom anew if you meet someone
who once has meant a lot to you.

Virgo – Your quiet and inward nature has got a hard
time standing demanding, critical and pedantic Virgo.

THE MYTH BEHIND THE SIGN
Hercules was the son of Jupiter
– the ruler of all gods, and of the mortal woman Alkmene. Jupiter’s wife Juno, was very jealous, and did whatever
she could to make it hard for Hercules. She put a spell on him, so that he in a stage of confusion killed his two children.
As a punishment for this act, the gods made him a servant of King Eurysteus in Mycenae,
who made him perform one seemingly impossible mission after another.
Hercules’s second mission
was to kill the multi-headed hydra, which was a dragon-like monster. For every head that Hercules cut off from the monster’s
body, two new ones grew out instead. And in the middle of this fierce battle, Juno sent a crab to distract Hercules. Hercules
however crushed the crab with his heal. And eventually, he could also defeat the hydra, with the help of his carriage driver
Iolaus, who with his torch hindered new heads from growing out of the hydra’s wounds.
