Cancer – Art for the sign of the Crab

  • Art
  • Cancer- June 21- July 21.

    Ruled over by the Moon, this Zodiac sign is normally associated with soft, nurturing and receptive colours such as shades of whites, Grey, Silver and Cream. Preferring the more subtle colour blends, those born under the zodiac sign of Cancer are likely to avoid clashing colour palettes and instead surround themselves with neutrals and harmonious tones, preferring calming images rather than those which may be overly complex or provocative.

    Their key personality traits of strong intuition, sensitivity, powers of observation and intelligence enable them to create interior surroundings that while carefully thought through, are seldom over contrived and so shine with their honestly and simplicity. Indeed a sense of harmony is truly important to this star sign and as the star sign most often associated with nurturing, they are attracted to images that display love and emotion in a positive way, as well as images reflecting animals and nature.

    We have put together some of our favourite images that are sure to appeal to those born under the sign of the crab.
