Symbol: The CrabÂ
Canceriansâ€¦ the classy, stately rebels of the zodiac chart! Theyâ€™re all about feelingsâ€¦ They communicate less and feel more! Which is why sudden mood swings, silent rebellion and suddenly getting all â€˜crabbyâ€™ is natural to Cancerians.
Their rebellion isnâ€™t loud and attention seeking thoughâ€¦ because as people, theyâ€™re subtle and understated. But donâ€™t mistake the subtlety for dullnessâ€¦ theyâ€™re actually a very youthful, energetic lot!
And them being all about feelings, is also the reason why theyâ€™re naturally empathetic towards othersâ€¦! Theyâ€™re born nurturers. They feel for others and are sensitive towards them, in spite of their faults. Hence, they make for amazing mentors, teachers and mothersâ€¦!
Being a water sign, theyâ€™re fluid, kind and gentle beings. They live by the heart, and not the head! To others, theyâ€™re like the calm of the sea that we love staring at from the shoreâ€¦ while no one except them knows, the turbulence within.
No wonder then that the best colour suited for them is the pure and pristine white, with streaks of subtle silvery grayâ€¦. like the froth of the receding calm waves at the seashore, and the shimmer of sunlight reflecting off it!
Pearls, are their favourite accessory!
White represents not just innocence and purity, it also represents calm and open-mindedness. Like I said, theyâ€™re empathetic and all-accepting of people. Non-judgmental, like a clear slate. Open to being painted with different opinions and feelings!
Cancer Style Symbols:
Colour: White and subtle silver/gray
Jewelery: Pearls – necklaces, bracelets, earrings.. even pearl embellishments on their clothesâ€¦ Cancerians can never have enough of it.
Theyâ€™re also exceptionally fond of heirloomsâ€¦ so if thereâ€™s a pass-on with a thought behind it, theyâ€™d prefer that any-day over something new.
Understated Elegance: Youâ€™ll seldom find a Cancerian woman to be loud and dramatic. These beauties revel in their simplicity and eleganceâ€¦ but are never boring! They can carry off funk and yet end up making it look elegant! (Think Princess Diana)
Details of the Look:
Iâ€™m wearing these frayed bottom white and gray pants with an anti-fit white top, both from Zara. While the green embroidery on the top isnâ€™t a very Cancer colour, it does symbolize â€˜lifeâ€™ and so I thought it was good for that pop of colour.
Iâ€™m also wearing a south-sea pearlsâ€™ necklace as a bracelet; and the white sun-hat, white sling bag and silver metallic footwear to add those finishing touches!
