What is some information about the Zodiac sign Cancer?

The story of Cancer is about a crab who was sent by the Greek goddess Hera to try to distract Hercules from winning one of his battles. Hera was married to Zeus and he had children with many of the other goddesses he cheated on her with. Hercules was the result of one of these unions. Hera, being the jealous woman that she is, tried to make Hercules fail by sending Cancer the crab to snap at his ankles during the battle. The crab's attemps were in vain and Hercules quickly slew the crab. Hera rewarded the crab's loyalty by giving him a place in the sky. In astrology cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac, it is a water sign, and its ruling planet is the moon. People with this sign are generally emotional, nurturing, creative, and enjoy a wide group of people (avoiding confrotation).
