Cancer is the mom of the zodiac and these 12 Cancer celebrities will make you feel right at home like any good mother would. As the first water sign of the zodiac, Cancer often gets pegged as being big cry babies, but after reading this article you’ll come to see that there is an intense joy that pushes through their sensitive souls. Let’s dive in on the 12 Cancer Celebrities that you should know.
Gone but never forgotten, Princess Diana left a legacy of kindness that echoes still today. Though her own life was wrought with sadness, she transmuted her pain into love as only a Cancer can. One of her most famous acts of kindness was in 1987 when she visited patients in a hospital suffering from HIV and AIDs and shook their hands without wearing gloves, an act which helped disprove the incorrect belief that the virus could be transmitted through touch.
It should come as no surprise that the man who brought love, light, and laughter into every American home in the 80s and 90s was a Cancer sun. Much like Princess Di, Williams had his own demons, having struggled with addiction and depression from an early age. Despite this, or perhaps because of this, Williams devoted his life to making others feel happy. But not all Cancer traits are like those above.
One of the world’s most famous supermodels, Gisele Bundchen is a Cancer through and through, not only because she is philanthropic and cares deeply for others as well as the planet, but also because she is a witch! Her husband Tom Brady has said as much, even sharing that she sets up intricate altars before his games, predicts certain events, and is often giving him small trinkets to carry around for luck. Every Cancer has a bit of witch in them!
Cancer is the sign of the nurturer, one of the divine parents of the zodiac, and the Cancer sun Nelson Mandela is often touted as the father of South Africa. As an activist and social democrat, Mandela is a name synonymous with freedom due to his efforts in the 40s, 50s, and 60s to end apartheid in South Africa. Though he was in prison when it was finally abolished, after his release he became the first president of South Africa, graciously guiding the nation towards a brighter future.
Having come out on the scene in the early 2000s writing and performing country music, Taylor Swift has always written and sung songs directly from her heart like a true Cancer moon. Country musicians are expert storytellers and, though she doesn’t sing country anymore, Swift is as good as the best of them when it comes to weaving together an emotional story through music.
Lev Grossman in an article for Time magazine once referred to Keanu Reeves as “Hollywood’s Ultimate Introvert.” This speaks to the often-shy Cancerian archetype, in truth Cancer is just supremely sensitive to energy and their environment, so they seek to conserve it. I can imagine that in Hollywood that can be hard to do, but Reeves has always been known to stand more on the outskirts, protecting and honoring his Cancer Moon.
Kris Jenner being a Cancer moon makes too much sense, after all the term “momager” was coined for this famous mother. Cancer is known as the mother archetype and Kris Jenner certainly is the prodigal mother of Hollywood! With Cancer’s relationship to family and motherhood, it’s no surprise that she created a reality TV show all about her family.
It’s not uncommon for Cancer moons to be drawn to music and poetry, since it can be such an excellent outlet for their emotions. This much was true for Mac Miller, he often stated that if you wanted to know how he was doing, just listen to his most recent music. Whether he was in love, struggling with addiction, or loving life, music was always the medium in which he could express his tender Cancer moon soul.
Victoria Beckham is a perfect example of a Cancer rising because even though she may have gained fame in the musical group Spice Girls, she’s remained famous for her role as wife to David Beckham and mother to their three boys (Cancer is the mom of the zodiac, remember). And as a Spice Girl, she always appeared confident in a black little dress, but truth be told she was a shy Cancer rising in person!
Quick question, do you know anyone who doesn’t like Jack Black? No, because he is a universally lovable and wonderful human being, so it’s no surprise that he also happens to be a Cancer rising. If you haven’t noticed, Cancers enjoy making people happy, and, from Black’s hilarious movies to his band Tenacious D, that is exactly what he’s doing with his life, and we thank him for it!
Something that is incredibly important to Cancer is water, whether it be the beach, a lake, a river, a bath, or the pool, Cancer’s love nothing more than to play in the water-they are water signs after all. So, the fact that the most decorated Olympian of all time, the swimmer Michael Phelps, is a Cancer rising makes so much sense!
Cancers tend to be drawn to the arts and for Cancer rising Salvador Dali it was painting. Dali is known for his technical skills in painting but instead of utilizing them for realism, he defined the genre of surrealism painting. Cancers are known to feel things deeply and this can distort their reality, so perhaps his shockingly bizarre paintings were a reflection of his own Cancerian worldview.
