A formidable front may hidew the innate sensitivity of the Cancerian, who has a subtile

chest or stomach trouble. Powers of recovery, though, are strong.
The sign rules the breast, esophagus and stomach, while the Moon regulates the pancreas,
body fluids, and the ebb and flow of hidden emotional currents.
