Cancers are Cardinal water signs, meaning that they are highly intuitive and psychic natural healers that are known for their emotional energy.  Cancers are homebodies and they need a home to feel secure, known as the initiators - Cancers will always be the first one to make you feel at home or welcome you into their lives.
