Often crippled by fear of failure, they fail to seize the moment and succeed with their plans. Cancerians need to be emotionally and mentally very strong. Cancerians need to decide through a combination of feeling and thought, and then to achieve their plans despite fears and obstacles. They should not be rationale in life..
