We take a look at Cancer mums to uncover what kind of mum you are


Cancer (June 21st – July 23rd) 

A Cancer mum (in zodiac terms) is considered Mother Superior. For many, being a matriarch comes as second nature and that maternal instinct kicks in from the word go. Looking back on their childhood, a Cancer mum may well see the nurturing side of their nature come out even back then —to friends, siblings, dolls, pets, in fact, anything needing a maternal touch will get it from a Cancerian. 

Being a mum is what Cancer mums feel they were born to do and are ready to take on the challenge. Nothing mum related phases a Cancer mum, they are the kind of mum that may like a home birth. That nurturing, mothering side doesn’t leave a Cancer mum even when her own children are grown, they may consider training as a Doula or midwife or work with children to fill that gap.

A Cancer mum likes nothing more than hosting family celebrations, with all the planning, cooking and preparing involved. Always the one to be organised and frame all those pictures, this sentimental side is considered the glue that holds everything together in the family unit.

With a natural reserved element of their nature, Cancer mums relish in the opportunity to get to know their children’s friends parents, it’s a good way to talk to new people about your kids which gives a Cancer mum time to quietly screen people before deciding that they're worthy of their trust.

If someone becomes worthy of becoming a friend, they will become like family to a Cancer mum. She also expects a high degree of loyalty when Cancer mum opens her heart to you.
