From Cancerians point of view,

I've a keen intellect and are good with your hands.
I'll make commendable painters and sculptors.
I'll be successful in sales
and will do well in advertising and marketing
for the food and drinks industry,
discussing new campaigns over long lunches, or deals over a lazy
breakfast would be utopia to me.

I may take to writing as my full-time profession,
mix that with being a food critic and the world could be my oyster.

I'll have reasonably good careers, although there
will be a tendency to change to an entirely different field midway.
This may happen sometime around the age of 35.

Money and material wealth are fairly important to me and
most of my important decisions in life
are made with the accompanying monetary benefits in mind.

Although I'm almost miserly with the money I earn, sudden windfalls and gains are often squandered away thoughtlessly.

Speculation and gambling rarely prove lucky for me.
