A BRIEF HISTORY
In Greek mythology, Cancer is linked to the hero Hercules and the giant crab, Karkinos. During Hercules’s battle against the monstrous Hydra as part of his Twelve Labors, the goddess Hera sent Karkinos to aid the Hydra.
Despite being crushed by Hercules, Karkinos’s bravery and loyalty did not go unnoticed by Hera, who placed him among the stars as the constellation Cancer.This story of Cancer serves as a symbol of unwavering loyalty and courage. It reminds us that even in the face of immense challenges, every act of bravery is significant and deserves recognition.
The Cancer constellation softly twinkles in the night sky, a tribute to the little crab’s undying spirit.
