People born under the cancer sign have many different traits. If you’re in a relationship with someone born under the Cancer star sign, you may notice that they’re very intuitive and sensitive.

- Cancerians do not like the spotlight and they are, in general, introverts rather than extroverts. This means they prefer the company of a few close friends rather than a big gathering with strangers.
- People born under the cancer sign don’t find it easy to open up to strangers and can be rather reserved. However, over time they will begin to trust you enough to reveal their kind, gentle and loyal sides.
- Cancerians are very sensitive to the atmosphere in a room, and can read the tone and mood of those around them fairly well. Thus, they’re pretty wise when making decisions on how to act and react around people.
