One of the most interesting things about horoscopes is that their history is far reaching, spanning back to the ancient Greek times. In fact, the various signs of the zodiac used in western horoscopes are based on various events in Greek mythology. If you were born under the sign of Cancer, your zodiac sign has a very interesting story, as will your horoscope!
According to the Greek myth, the queen of the gods, Hera, became angry with a man named Hericles. She sent a giant sea snake and a crab to fight against him. When he beat them both, Hera proclaimed the man a champion and put the crab constellation in the sky. The Cancer sign in horoscopes is based on that constellation.
According to astrology, people of the Cancer sign are said to be quiet and shy. They are compatible with Taurus, Virgo, Pisces and Scorpio. Many people turn to horoscopes to determine if they are romantically compatible with another person.
People who are a Cancer are those born between the 21st of June and the 22nd of July. Other facts to note include that the Cancer sign is the zodiac's fourth sign, and it is a moon sign, as well. Cancer may sound like a bad word for a horoscope sign, but people born during this time are said to be quite lucky and happy in life.
If you are a Cancer, your sign has an interesting history, and your horoscope could give you some insight into your future.
