Cancer is the nurturer of the zodiac, and they have a surplus of emotional energy, so they prefer being with others, where they can take care of them and be taken care of, too. "If Cancer could direct their caring nature to themselves and not project it onto others, their need for others wouldn't be so strong," he says. "Also, Cancer could express their emotional energy across innumerable channels — their career, their hobbies, health, etc. as opposed to channel them into someone else. In doing this, they won't feel they're not expressing themselves when alone,' he adds.
