Let’s look at some fun facts about the Cancer star sign to show you why you need a few summer people in your life.

1. Cancers can close up pretty easily.

As water signs, Cancers can be a little clammy! They tend to close up and retreat when they need to. So, if you get a Cancer to open up, you must be pretty special!

2. They’re very creative and like making things to get them through the day.

Cancers are known for being very creative. They often use their creativity as an outlet – meaning you’ll likely come across a few successful creators born between June and July.

3. Cancers are very ambitious, too.

Cancers are fantastic artists, be it in music, art, or other outlets. And, they are also very ambitious! So, they tend to have big dreams for themselves and everything they create – and again, it’s why you’ll find plenty of big stars are Cancers.
