Gemstones for Cancer


Loving, Intuitive, Cautious, Imaginative

Cancerians are unusual individuals but keenly aware of what sets them apart from the crowd. Dreams are an integral part of their world.

Cancerians have a need for security and will map out their future in extreme detail. They may spend a long time searching for their perfect partner, but once they have chosen, they look no further. In general, once someone is let into the innermost circle of a Cancerian, they will remain true to that person.

Protective Cancerians know how to wait, but don’t think them passive as they can be quite aggressive when they want something. They prefer not to make demands but rather expect others to understand their needs, sensitivities and diverse moods.

A strong bond of empathy with another is far more important to a Cancerian than reason or logic. They need deep, emotional bonds and to be able to trust and share their feelings. Cancerians may find it difficult to work or spend time with people with whom they have no bond or mutual understanding.

Many Cancerians have strange aspects to their personalities. Expression and release are important to them. If they keep their feelings bottled up they may be prone to stomach or intestinal maladies. Praise is important to Cancerians and they can show considerable ambition.
