The Crab

The symbol for Cancer represents the claws of the Crab. Cancer is the Latin word for 'crab.' Like the crab, Cancerians' defense mechanisms (protective shell) cover a sensitive interior. They withdraw into their shell at the first sign of danger and runs back to where they feel safe. The crab's claws are also akin to Cancer's aversion to letting go.
