American English. Elementary level. Audio.

Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac. This zodiac sign is represented by the crab. People born under the Cancer sign have a tough outer shell.

They are very protective of themselves and their loved ones. On the inside, Cancers are sensitive creatures who care deeply for their loved ones. You can confide in them with your darkest secrets.

Despite their devoted nature, Cancers can be tough to get along with. They are known for having mood swings. Just when you think your friend is ready to go to a party, he curls up behind closed doors with a book.

Most of the time, Cancers keep very busy and lead successful lives. They are workaholics who prefer to run rather than walk through life.
