Much like the crab that represents them, Cancer natives ( June 21- July 22 ) tend to possess something of a proverbial shell themselves. They have a tendency to want to crawl into it and preserve themselves if they feel threatened, as they are one of the most sensitive and emotionally deep signs of the entire zodiac, Says Hirav Shah, Famed Business Astrologer™ Cum Astro-Strategist.

How Cancerians Operate / Think / Behave At Work or Business


1.Moody- Cancerians have a penchant toward moodiness, and can be a bit indirect and crabby at times as well.

2.Blending Nature – Cancer is a sign that doesn’t generally seek to stand out, preferring to blend into the work environment around them instead.

3.Reliable- Cancer is the work friend everyone can rely on. Cancers are water signs, known for their caring, nurturing, and empathetic vibes. In fact, Cancer is associated with the waters of the womb—the OG flotation therapy. The Moon, Cancer’s ruler, gives them the ability to reflect the feelings of those around them.

4. Sensitive- Cancers create a homey, nurturing feeling wherever they go. If they retreat to their (meticulously decorated) desks every once in a while, it’s only because they need to recharge. Their sweet sensitivity is like a superpower.

5. Not Expressive – Cancerians have a hard time expressing exactly what they want or don’t want from certain people. But if you can help them express themselves, then you might turn out to be their life-long partner.

Best Business / Work Matches For Cancerians.

1. Compatibility of Cancer with Scorpio

Each one’s innate personality makes the other feel safe and secure, making this a very harmonious business partnership. Basically, at work, Cancer and Scorpio are an interesting combo.

Both are Water Signs, with common goals much deeper than just getting their work done and going home. Cancer wants to mean something to the world, and often chooses helping professions to get this need met.

Scorpio, on the other hand, wants to delve deep into the emotional mysteries of the world. Though these two may spend hours discussing the focus and impact of their work together, what comes out of this relationship is positive for all involved. Success comes when they put their minds together to solve common problems.

2. Compatibility of Cancer with Taurus

Cancer and Taurus share a common need for security and a sense of permanence, persistence, stability and fixity, when it comes to all major aspects of their business. Their differences are actually beneficial, each one’s individual strengths making up for the other’s weaknesses.

Though Taurus can sometimes be the most stubborn sign in the Zodiac, demanding to get its way in work matters, it can also help projects power through the pipeline.

Cancer’s water nature makes sure that people benefit from whatever they create, while Taurus’ bull-like drive ensures that whatever they do, it will be followed through to completion.

Taurus’ legendary tenacity can be a benefit to Cancer co-workers, who want to make sure their work has deep emotional meaning for them.

Together, this team can work well and create a strong bond as co-workers & partners.

3. Compatibility of Cancer with Virgo

Cancerians & Virgos are great at communicating with each other, despite the fact that Virgo always speaks from a practical standpoint, while Cancer is more emotive. This helps a lot, in their business partnership to sustain and businesses to prosper by yielding productive results.

Both Cancerians and Virgos take great pride in assisting and helping others at work. The Cancer-virgo partnership often has the patience to cultivate products, over a long period of time.

Hence, cancerians can do well, running of a greenhouse, raising organic food or running pension funds. Under an employer, Virgos can attend to daily reports and cancerians can focus on the big picture. Cancerians are born leaders and their humility stands well with modest Virgos.

Final Words

A wide array of businesses could easily suit the cancer-scorpio, cancer-taurus and cancer-virgo combos like baker, builder, caterer, cook, farming, gardener, hotel worker, manufacturer, merchandising, plumber, shop-keeper, marine biologist, politician, interior designer, real estate agent, writer / editor and nurse.

Meanwhile, it may be difficult to convince a Cancer patient to talk openly about what’s bothering them, but if you can do it without making them feel threatened, you can build a long-lasting partnership, Hirav Shah Concludes…
