5 Books a Cancer Won’t be Able to Put Down

Posted on July 22, 2017

Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac. Your energy is deeply emotional, creative and intuitive spirits in astrology. As a water sign, you have a depth and wisdom about you that others find enthralling, and this, coupled with your natural ability to nurture means you will rarely be alone if you choose not to be.

Sensitive Cancer can struggle with moodiness and feelings of self-doubt, which can be harmful to themselves and their relationships. When we know more about our zodiac traits and our own innate qualities, we can grow stronger and channel our energy into being better humans-beings. Here are 5 books you should read to foster that inner wealth.

4. Of Water and the Spirit by Malidoma Patrice Somé

At the age of fifteen, he escaped and returned to his Dagara Village. This memoir follows his journey, including his initiation into his tribe well beyond the accepted age. Moving, uplifting and at times, hard to believe, this book is a gem and a true must-read.
