Cancer, the fourth sign in the Zodiac, is identified with the crab constellation. In Ancient Egyption lore, it was associated with the scarab beetle, a symbol of renewal and rebirth. The Greek myth behind this constellation is about a crab that pinched Heracles on the foot while he fought Hydra of Lerna, the serpentine beast with many heads and poisonous breath. The demigod killed the crab, and as the goddess Hera was an enemy of Heracles, she placed the crab among the stars to honor them.
People born from June 21st-July 22nd are considered to have Cancer as their ‘Sun sign’ - the part of an astrological chart that determines ego, identity, the character one plays in life. ‘Moon sign’ refers to the subconscious, intuition, inner world, and emotional self.
