If single, you could attract someone who is very unique and possibly from a different culture. Relating to this person opens you up to the many different approaches one can have to an issue. If attached, the two of you will go on more getaways together. Enjoy every moment. Cancer encourages your flights of fancy. A baby born today has a sun in Scorpio and a moon in Gemini if born before 8:36 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Cancer.
