5 KEY TRAITS:
Cancer’s willingness to care for others and the sign’s maternal instincts make them perfect for many jobs that entail caring for those in need, whatever that might be. Cancers like to dispense their care in a way and setting that allows them to give individuals undivided attention, such as in therapy. Cancers are often found in many areas of the healthcare system. While enjoying slower-paced jobs, Cancers are vigilant and not prone to panic, so they can do rather well in healthcare jobs slow most of the time but with the potential to get hectic now and then, such as nursing.
Cancers love to work from home, and many will go to some lengths to secure a job that allows them to do this. Ideally, they will run their own business, especially one connected or physically adjacent to their home. On top of that, Cancers might enjoy managing places that provide temporary homes or shelter, such as hotels, motels, various shelters, etc.
Also, Cancers usually enjoy working with children. They might do this as teachers, coaches, or with various jobs in orphanages. It’s common for Cancers to get involved with various forms of social work too.
