Cancer is the zodiac’s fourth sign, and it is named after the constellation of Cancer. Its celestial longitude ranges from 90 to 120 degrees. The Sun transits this area under the tropical zodiac between June 22 and July 22 and under the sidereal zodiac between July 21 and August 9.

Cancer is the cardinal sign of the Water trigon, which includes Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio in astrology. It is one of the six negative signs, and the Moon is its ruling planet. According to the Karkinos, the sign of Cancer is most commonly symbolized by a crab, however other representations of the sign include a lobster or crayfish.

Cancer is the fourth zodiac sign, which the sun enters around June 21 in the Northern Hemisphere during the summer solstice. Cancer is the sign of those born between June 21 and July 22 (depending on the year). Individuals born on these dates may be referred to as “Cancerians” depending on the astrological system they follow. Cancer is a northern sign, while Capricorn is its polar opposite. Cancer is regarded as a cardinal sign.

Water is the element linked with Cancer, and it forms the water trigon with Scorpio and Pisces. The water trigon is one of the zodiac’s four elemental trigons: fireearth, and air. When a trigon is powerful, it is considered to have an impact on the planet. Cancer is considered the house of Neptune and Jupiter’s exaltation, both celestial planets that influence individuals born under this sign. The Moon is its ruling planet.


The sign of Cancer is called Karka in Hindu astrology, and the Moon is its Lord. Luna/Diana, both goddesses who symbolize the Moon, Cancer’s governing planet, have divine connections with Cancer in Renaissance astrology.

“Cancer” is an Indo-European word that comes from a root that means “to scratch.” The scarab beetle symbolized Cancer in ancient Egypt, whereas the turtle represented Cancer in Mesopotamia. The animal symbolic of the sign was thought to be “pushing” the sun through the skies, kicking off the summer solstice each occasion.

It is the scientific Latin genus name for “crab” in contemporary times, however it was once used to denote a variety of shellfish species. According to Greek tradition, Cancer’s symbol”often a crab, though also a lobster”is based on the Karkinos (Greek: “Cancer”), a crab crushed beneath Hercules’ foot and whose remnants were put in the sky by Hera, resulting in the Cancer constellation. Juno, Hera’s Roman equivalent, is the one who plants the crab in the sky in Roman versions of the narrative.

Cancer was named the “most inconspicuous figure in the zodiac” by naturalist Richard Hinckley Allen in 1899, and its mythology “apologizes for its presence by the story that when Hercules crushed the Crab for pinching his toes during a contest with the Hydra in the Marsh of Lerna, Juno exalted it to the sky.”
