Tension, anxiety, and emotional stress are the leading causes of illness among Cancerians. They have delicate stomachs and digestive problems, are prone to ulcers, gall bladder upsets, gas pains, nausea and gastritis. The health is not robust, particularly in childhood, and many suffer from upper respiratory infections such as bronchitis.
The Moon, Cancer's ruler, has dominion over the breasts and the alimentary canal, heightening the susceptibility of Cancerians in these areas.
As a cardinal water sign, Cancer symbolizes the cooling, healing principle of sensitivity and empathy with others, and correlates with the principle of action and initiating movements of energy in a definitive direction.
