PUT A CANCER and Leo in one body and what do you get?

Drama, that's what.

The emotional Cancer and the fiery Leo combined can really blow the smallest things out of proportion. But, hey, they keep it interesting.

This cusp is all about movement - emotional and physical. Swinging from one emotion to the next, the challenge for the Cancer-Leo cusp is to find their emotional center. Meditation would be a great ally in their constant struggle for balance. On the upside, life as a Cancer-Leo is never dull. They might appear shy when you first meet them, but by the end of the night, they could very well be hogging the mic at the karaoke joint.

Those born on the Cancer-Leo cusp can be sensitive to criticism, so take care when making suggestions as to how they might better conduct themselves. They also pay great attention to detail and tend to have a good memory - and that includes the ability to hold a grudge. Affectionate and devoted, this cusp loves to love and be loved - when things are going well, there is no one better to share the moment with. But, when things are bad, well...this cusp may put on a brave face, but they are easily wounded.

If you are a Cancer-Leo, try not to focus on what others are doing. Instead, focus on what is going on in your life. Keep trying to find your center.

If you know a Cancer-Leo: Be kind to your sensitive friend. Take the time to think about the right way to say that important thing so that it doesn't hurt their feelings. And, set up a movie night or a small cozy hang to build up their sense of confidence in your friendship.
