Characteristics of Capricorn

The mirror is not your best friend. You care for the world, and a beauty routine only binds you down. But your eyes and cheekbones are a special gift, so you need no work there! You are the perfect picture of the nurturer, with your sparkling eyes and womanly proportions.

From the outside, you would pass off easily for Mother Hen. Underneath, you're an emotional and sexual woman. You do have your moments of celebration, when you want to let your hair down. When you want to indulge, you spend hours in the bathtub, scrubbing away. That is when your bath oils make a rare appearance. You prefer the classics - pearls, pastel colours and tried-and-true products.

Your beauty comes from your generosity, your sympathetic nature and your realistic self-image. It's when you open your arms to give the world a warm hug that you become an absolute knockout.

Lucky Gem
If you have been worried by sleepless nights, a pearl could be the perfect cure. Wearing the pearl also ensures peace of mind, and could bring you all the good luck in the world!

Lucky Number
Number 6 is your pick for good fortune!

Lucky Colour
Soak in the elegance of white!

Lucky Day
It is time to look ahead on Wednesday!

Cancer as a man Cancer as a woman

You have the characteristic Cancer need for security. You pursue it with dedication and a quiet, religious fervour most of the time. Finances have fascinated you since childhood, and saving is substantially more attractive to you than spending.

You are either very close to your family (specifically your mother), or completely alienated from them. The relationship is never casual. You are naturally shy of rushing into a relationship, but once you're sure, you won't be easily rebuffed. You like your loved ones to lean on you forever, and when they show signs of independence, you may become a cranky crab.

Your Cancer sensitivity is hurt at the slightest pretext. You hate to be criticised, you are deeply wounded by ridicule, and you just can't stand being rejected. You like to keep secrets. You are afraid you are not pretty enough, smart enough, young enough or old enough.

After you've been won over, you may be just a little tenacious, but you'll never let go of the relationship as long as you live. There is never anything shallow or superficial about your sentiments. Patience is one of your loveliest virtues. You will never let people down when things get really dismal.

Cancer Love Sign - Virgo Cancer in Relationship

Where romance is concerned, you enjoy being the initiator in the game of love. Gentle probing can soon turn to passion, and few would resist your charms. The best way to your heart is truly through your stomach. This love of physical and emotional well-being, is a duty which your partner must fulfill. If this isn't achieved, you will retreat into a shell.

You are blessed with a unique intuition, and this works very well for a relationship. You have an excellent instinct for which relationship will work, and once you assess this, the relationship will never go wrong. Your charm and magnetism are qualities which will prove most alluring, and coupled with your nurturing need, will prove hard to resist. You love to feel secure, so someone who remembers special days, or who finds no reason to celebrate, will find a tender and loving companion

One must Know the rules when dealing with Cancer

What you should do: What you should not do:
  1. Invest in a recipe book, and learn to whip up some wonderful meals, For the crab, there is no place like home, and something straight from the kitchen wins hands-down.
  2. Remember special days, like the first time you exchanged a kiss. This means a lot to the Cancer.
  3. Show the Cancer how much you appreciate the relationship. The Crab thrives on emotional security.
  4. Be ready to lend a shoulder whenever needed. You will get unconditional love in return.
  5. Give your Cancer undivided attention when they need it. The Crab is hurt easily, and you don't want that, do you?
  1. Don't expect to be the boss in the relationship. The Crab has a definite idea of who will wear the pants.
  2. Ignoring family matters could is a dangerous mistake. The Cancerian burns incense at the family altar, and will expect you to do too.
  3. Don't be pushy. This will shock the Crab. Gentleness is the key.
  4. The Cancer is not the one for practical jokes. Tread carefully when making fun of them, for they can lapse into depths of gloom.
  5. Don't get carried away by the Crab's mood swings. You will experience an emotional tidal wave

Careers Money

You could be mistaken for an underachiever, but you work in a subtle, low-key manner. You like to lead, and are generally successful. You can create a space of harmony and happiness for all. This empathetic and intuitive quality also makes you a natural nurturer. You are very creative and possess qualities that can lead to bliss in the workplace, if properly merged. Think of an art therapist or family counseller, that is your talk. But a word of caution; people shouldn't make the mistake of rubbing you the wrong way. They will pay a heavy price!


Security is of the utmost importance to you and that means financial security as well. You like having money and feel especially good when there's a pile of it in the bank. You are an excellent strategist. You enjoy accumulating money (you need to!) and intend to hang on to most, if not all, of what you get. Loving money as you do (green must be your favourite colour!), you make excellent bankers and business people, seemingly endowed as you are with a head for money. You also view money as a measure of your value. You enjoy doing the budgeting and will always see to it that the fridge is full, the bills are paid, and that bank balances are healthy
