Those of the star sign Cancer can be very difficult people to become acquainted with. They can be profoundly perceptive, devoted and emotional - being very attached to and caring intensely of home and family affairs. Cancer folk are very perceptive and sensitive of the pain and anguish experienced by others, and will shoulder compassion towards them.
Like Pisces and Scorpio, Cancer is of the element water. They are as such heavily influenced by the emotions within their heart, which can give rise to them being detached from the surrounding world. With their planetary ruler being the Moon, the lunar phases afflicts upon Cancer folk sudden transitory emotions which they have no control over. This adds further turmoil to their already heightened emotional state, all as if they (and their family and friends) didn't already have enough to contend with.
During adolescences, those of the Cancer sign need to be nurtured with care and compassion, same as they generously afford to others, as they lack the capability to cope and safeguard themselves. If they are reared without sufficient love or patience, it could later in life result in unpredictably in their mood, and self-centered or selfish behavior. Their compassionate nature renders them speedy to support others, and equally speedy to retreat in conflict. When Cancer folk do decide to stand up to a fight, they often grossly miscalculate their foe, picking a fight with someone much stronger than they realized. If the Cancer sign has made sound choices in their life, then they can be very happy and content with an harmonious home and a loving family. » Back to About Cancer Menu
Cancer and Friendship
Cancer folk will happily engage with new people, but will however seem distant and avoiding of those that they believe their family will not approve of. They immediately hold respect for people they have just met and are able to communicate freely. This is due largely to their intuitive and compassionate personality, which means they can initially connect with a person at an emotional level, as opposed to an awkward, curious and superficial question-and-answer exchange. Cancer mostly enjoy social interaction within intimate surroundings such as at home, where they can feel more secure, in control, and where they can be more perceptive. Their downside is that their compassionate, intuitive and emotional nature can be a challenge for pragmatic people to understand. » Back to About Cancer Menu
Cancer and Family
Of all the signs in the zodiac, Cancer are the most deeply caring of family relationships and of the home. Being intensely sentimental in character, they will be 'the' family member that fondly perpetuates the memories of family, often by keeping extensive photo collections, maintaining a family tree, or organizing family get-togethers and reunions. If they have achieved contentment and security within their own life, then they can make for wondrous and deeply caring parents, always in sync with the emotions of their children even after they've grown up and moved out of home. » Back to About Cancer Menu
About Cancer Love:
CancerLove and Sex
Those of Cancer sign are very emotional people, with their relationships being largely dominated by feelings instead of physical pleasures. They are caring and compassionate, and will dispense their caring nature to the world without consideration of themselves. When choosing a partner, they are looking for someone who is intuitive so that they can understand the Cancer mood without the need for verbal communication. They highly regard those with a daily routine in sync with their own. Affection for partners of Cancer sign will wane if the partner is shallow, eccentric or unreliable. The inhibitions that Cancer knowingly inflict upon themselves means that they will unlikely be satisfied with their own sex life, unless they can choose a partner that offers a secure and relaxed atmosphere during love making, whilst at the same time trying to be expressive and adventurous.
Cancer folk are extremely dedicated individuals who are willing to put themselves in jeopardy to protect their family image. As such, they can, to their detriment, persist with a poorly chosen partner who is abusive and selfless. They need a partner in life that can share in responsibility and offer them security, in order for them to have the courage to take major steps in life such as starting a family, a career move, or standing up for themselves from harmful others. Those of the Cancer sign are devoted to traditional values such as marriage and parenthood, but their insecurity, trust and adoration they the hold for their partner can allow them to be misguided by their partner, potentially being a party to values not in line with their own true nature. But one should never take for granted the thoughtfulness and compassion that their Cancer life-partner bestows upon them, else later in life they will find out just how moody and manipulative the Cancer sign can be.
The Cancer male knows sufficiently well that he ought to make the first move when seeking a partner, but his conservative nature results in him taking too long to build up the courage. As such, prospective partners will need to take the initiate, albeit very tactfully so that he's under the impression that he is in control. Cancer males have very complicated personalities, being that they are shy, emotionally delicate, and protective of the people he loves. When seeking a partner, unknowingly he is looking for his idea of the perfect spouse and mother to his future children.
Cancer men are very emotional individuals who likes to be a care giver to others. This stems from his desire to protect and to feel needed. It immensely gratifies the Cancer male to receive from his partner abundant attention, expressions of concern, and affectionate words. The Cancer male can unfortunately be insecure, discouraging and moody, but to make up for this he can be a generous and doting partner with every intention of committing to a life long relationship. » Back to About Cancer Menu
How to Attract the CancerWoman
As it is for Cancer men, Cancer women are also with complex personalities, but invariably they are basically homely and conservative. The Cancer female is emotional, susceptible and unlikely to ever rush into love. You need to work earnestly to win her trust, and if you do she will afford you loyalty and passion. If you wish to seduce a Cancer woman you need to take the first step, ensuring that she is treated with the utmost respect. A Cancer female is seeking commitment, so is the wrong choice for someone seeking a casual relationship. Being conservative in nature, she is a romantic and seeking a partner to share her love with.
It what may seem contrary to her conservative nature, the Cancer woman can be very erotic and sensual if she can be made to feel sufficiently secure. For if she can be liberated of her intimate emotions and personality, she can be an amazing sexual partner. To maintain a long-term relationship with a female Cancer, one must be loyal, transparent and respectful. She will never forgive or forget unfaithfulness, and will be very unstable and unrelenting in her heartbreak. » Back to About Cancer Menu
