Love And Intimacy
When a Cancer gets romantically involved, they aren’t afraid of showing their emotions. What troubles them is the fear of getting hurt, for these are individuals that often perceive this world as a rough place they cannot handle. They are afraid of all the wrong words they could hear some day, and even though this can be far from reality, it keeps them careful and on a distance until they start feeling safe. Dedicated and loyal, their goals transcend typical romantic relationships, and even though some of Cancer representatives can be prone to casual flings, this is not in any way typical for this sign. In search for someone to share their life with, these people will search and search until they find someone to stick to. Once they do, they can become clingy and too attached, so it is important for them to keep some of their distance with a strong sense of where the other person currently is. When emotions are shared and the attachment goes both ways, but with both individuals strongly holding on to their individuality, sexual side of the relationship becomes something like a given, connecting these partners even stronger and firming their deeply intimate bond.
There is something like an inner fear in every Cancer that they aren’t taking enough responsibility. Being a sign opposed to the sign of Capricorn – the sign of all responsibility, this is a strange notion that moves them to build a strong career path and provide for themselves and their family. Often described as family types, many would imagine housewives and husbands that come home to watch a game with their sons every evening. This is not exactly the correct image, and although many of them would love to spend all of their time with children and loved ones, they are down to earth enough to understand that they need to provide, feed, and create material safety for those who depend on them. This is why it is truly rare to see a Cancer not building his or hers career up and being as responsible and dedicated to their work as only the best in our branches can be.
Positive Cancer Traits
Loving for once they feel a beautiful emotion towards another human being, they cherish it. With building of closeness and intimacy, a Cancer will make you feel special, care for you and never let you down, no matter your gender, sexual orientation, life goals, race or physical distance from them.
Compassionate with an incredibly deep understanding for other people, a Cancer will always carefully listen before acting on impulse, judging, or pushing other people’s limits.
Generous as a sign that exalts Jupiter and understands the art of unconditional giving. They will find an equation in their mind that will make them peaceful and calm while giving all they have to those they deeply love.
Negative Cancer Traits
Oversensitive and even though this is not exactly a negative trait, it can make them feel bad for years before they realize it is their actual quality and learn how to use it.
Clingy as a sign that is in search for a cleansed heart. While looking for love within, they tend to get too tied up in a love they find in the outer world. They have to hold on to their individuality and truly reserve their deepest emotions of love for themselves to begin with.
Moody since their emotions change with the tides and the movements of the Moon. The atmosphere they carry around cannot be predicted, unless if you know them in their deepest core and understand how to catch a wave and land where they’re at.
Understanding Your Cancer
If you truly want to understand your Cancer, just stop to listen. Running through this relationship won’t get you any far, and it will be even more difficult earning their trust once it has been broken. Respect your Cancer and give them support and protection, for once they feel that nothing bad can come to them when they are around you, they will open up, and you’ll have a chance to see a whole new world of love, dedication and magical experiences that can never be found with someone else. With their mission located somewhere in the world of emotion, never tell them that they are too emotional. There is no such thing and their sensitivity is what keeps everyone around them happy.
