Friends and Family:
Traditional and maternal, Cancerians make excellent parents. In fact, all aspects of family are number one to this sign. This can be seen in the homes they make and in the dedication to duty they display. Cancer natives are often willing to overlook personality conflicts when it comes to family simply because they are related. Whatever needs to be done, you can count on a Cancer native to go the distance for a family member. They are deeply sentimental and are diligent about keeping family albums and histories intact. Passing on stories to the next generation is a favorite pastime.
When it comes to friendships, the Cancer person is very helpful. They're almost always willing to lend a hand, providing it doesn't conflict with family obligations. Friends are held in high regard and are generally of like mind. Because the Cancerian generally prefers the home scene rather than going out, folks who enjoy visiting and sharing activities such as cards or at-home dining are top picks for buddies. Although their deeply intuitive, heart-not-head personality makes Cancerians very sympathetic, it can also make them a little hard to understand. Time is the cure for this!
