If Your Baby's Sun Sign is Cancer

Cancer is the Cardinal Water sign. That means caring sensitivity.

Little Crabs tend to be affectionate and protective, but they also need to be on the receiving end of lots of nurturing themselves.

As a little Crab's caregiver, you can help them best by giving them the psychological tools needed to cope with changing moods and strong emotions.

Little Crabs tend to pick up on other people's feelings very easily, so be honest with them, but in a way that helps them deal with the emotions rather than making them uncomfortable or fearful.

Sometimes a little Crab will rely on a hard little shell of sulking or rejection to protect its soft little inside feelings.

A lot of proper guidance and love right from the early years will help little Crabs eventually navigate the ups and downs of life without sinking too often into insecurity or clinginess. Don't enable whininess, but don't judge it too harshly either; just be patient with this natural challenge, teach healthy emotional coping, and you'll be raising a kind and loving person who is sensitive to the needs of others.
