The History of Cancer Zodiac Sign
The Cancer sign does not fall under the Cancer constellation. It starts with the summer solstice and covers the fourth 30 degrees of the circle, beginning in July. Cancer is a cardinal zodiacal sign, which means it begins a season similarly to Aries, which marks spring. The constellation of Cancer used to be located around the same latitudes as today's most northern observation point for the Sun, representing summer solstice. The Crab is the second-largest constellation in terms of area and brightness, despite the fact that its name is derived from the Latin term for crab. We can barely detect a constellation with our naked eyes since it resembles an upside-down letter "Y." It has the lowest magnitude of all zodiacal constellations, ranging between Gemini and Leo. The sign of the death, or "Black Sign," was called the "Dark Sign." It appeared black and lacked eyes owing to its faint aspect. Cancer (the crayfish or crab) was held to have been a location for the Mesopotamian South Sun in ancient times, after which it became linked with July's fourth month Duzu, which falls in June-July presently.
Mantra and Purpose
"Own it" is the Cancer zodiac sign mantra. Cancers are natural-born leaders who are not afraid to take charge when the situation demands it.
They're also fiercely loyal and protective of their loved ones, and they'll do whatever it takes to ensure they're safe and happy.
