If you were born between June 21st and July 22nd, you have a Cancer sun sign in the Zodiac. Those with Cancer heavily influenced in their BIRTH CHART will strongly benefit from this information as well. For example, if Cancer is at your MC (Midheaven) or ASC (Ascendant), you could exhibit these traits just as strongly, sometimes even stronger, than a Cancer sun sign would. Another way to use this information is by working on the particular "House" in your BIRTH CHART where the sign Cancer resides. This would be the area of life in which you pertain these particular traits.

Earth's atmosphere is divided into 12 sections called "Houses." These"Houses" represent a separate area and specific function in our lives. Every birth chart consists of these 12 "Houses," However, the order of the layout depends on the exact time of birth. As the planets orbit, they create aspects to these sections (Houses) in the atmosphere. Their energy effects each individual differently, depending on the aspects that were apparent at your time of birth.
Cancer is the natural ruler of the fourth "House" in the Zodiac. This is the "House of Home." This "House" shares certain qualities with Cancer, even when occupied by a different sign. The fourth "House" relates to the kind of home you had in childhood, your relationship with parents, generational qualities, real estate, and ownership of land. The fourth "House" represents the kind of security you seek and what you keep protected from the rest of the world. This is "Home" in both a physical and emotional sense.
