Heads up, you're a Cancer if you're born between 21 June to 22 July.
Your Cancer And Cancer Rising Horoscope For May
Unexpected invites, chance meetings and/or random reconnections bring a little bit of sweetness to your social life, especially in the first week or so of the month (until 9 May). If you like what you see, the new moon on the 12th is the perfect moment to make new friends a more regular fixture. Whilst the world around you might seem to ramp up a notch for Gemini season (21 May), it’s time for you to take time out and go within. Listen to your body when it needs rest and schedule plenty of white space in your calendar. The eclipse in Sagittarius (26 May) is a great time for journaling, reflection and meditation. Pay attention to intuitive pings and enjoy the dreamy mood that comes in the final days of May. Then, as Mercury retrograde begins (30th) your urge to retreat further into your shell intensifies.

Cancer Personality Explained
If you are born between 21 June and 22 July you are a Cancer and belong to the water element of the zodiac (along with Pisces and Scorpio). Most comfortable at home with their loved ones, Cancers are tenacious, loyal and highly imaginative. They can be suspicious, insecure and moody, but on the flip side, they are super empathetic and expect the same treatment in return. Set them up next to a beautiful body of water (or just in a bath) and they’ll be as happy as a pig in mud, just a whole lot cleaner.
Ruled by the moon, it’s no surprise Cancerians are extremely in touch with their emotions and can be quite sensitive, but their compassionate nature makes them a delightful addition to a close-knit group of friends or in the home.
Sharing the crab symbol are Ariana Grande, Post Malone, Princess Diana and Selena Gomez.
