Cancer traits: The best and worst characteristics if you have a Cancer star sign | The Sun

CANCER is the fourth astrological sign of the zodiac and comes straight after Gemini season.

Cancer season starts as the sun enters at the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere – usually June 21 or 22, and ends July 22.

Cancer star sign traits and personality

People who identify as Cancerian are typically very 'rooted' kinds of people, and love to surround themselves with family or things that remind them of home.

Wearing your heart on your sleeve is normal and emotions run high if you were born between June 22 and July 22.

Cancerians are emotional and at times overly sensitive, thrifty and sentimental – but can also make great chefs with a keen love of food.

They tend to like art, home-based hobbies and helping loved ones, but dislike strangers and being made to reveal details of their personal life.
