The Cancer Personality

To describe Cancerians one would have to say they are the most sensitive sign of the zodiac. They have a wonderful big heart with a great deal of softness when it comes to family and friends. Personal and material security goals are important to them and, once they decide on a particular course of action, they usually follow it through to the end and tough it out if they need to.  Although they can be very career-oriented, they are probably suited to master their domestic duties and cope with housework and running the domestic front. They will always want a comfortable home of their own and will work long hours to achieve this. Nothing will please them more than to be financially and domestically independent; they have the instinctive knack of knowing where everything is, if and when other people ask. Their natural desire to care for others makes them a valuable asset in fields such as teaching, childcare, nursing, housekeeping, hospitality and health. Being such protective and basically conservative people, they could also do well in matters relating to managing other people's money and assets, business and administration. They seem to have a wonderful inner strength when the going gets rough. Although they are born worriers and appear to make many mountains out of molehills, they seem to know intuitively that everything will work out to their advantage in the long run. Psychologically, the primitive urge in them is to protect and nourish.


Cancer in Love

Cancerians can certainly astonish and delight their partner with their love and emotions. Although they give the impression of shyness on the exterior of their personality, the internal aspect possesses a delightful package of surprises and that highly physical sexual side to their character appears to throb with the lust of desire. This combination will be very hard for any member of the opposite sex to resist. Cancerians are very desirable people and they can deliver a great deal when they become involved in a partnership; they are extremely sensuous in the basic sense. What they want they usually get, if not today then next week, and their possessive side will not let go once they get what they want. Their insecurity with love can at times make them rather selfish and jealous, and they like to rule the roost and have things moving on their terms. They must learn to love without trying to own the people they love and, above all, they must become skilled as to when a relationship needs freedom or independence. When they fall in love, they fall hard, but they are also cautious and at times put the brakes on, as impulsiveness makes them very uncomfortable.

Cancerians take love very seriously and need to be pampered by their partner, then slowly seduced. They will not tolerate a rushed affair, as they like to be fussed over, cuddled and wooed. They certainly don't have the style of a roll in the hay or a one-night stand; love is more important to them than a casual affair. Fantasies are part of their character and they can run some hot sex scenes in their head; however, they need a partner who will supply them with both emotional and material security, who is also a steady, reliable lover and definitely not inhibited.


Health and Wellbeing

Cancer rules the breast and stomach, lung and heart membranes, eyes, bone marrow, bladder, liver and pituitary gland. Giving way to excessive emotion and sensitivity often causes Cancerians to suffer from gastric or stomach troubles. Pleurisy, dropsy and all water and inflammatory diseases are associated with this sign. Vitality is not overly strong at times; therefore they should eat much pure, well-cooked fresh food. Fatty food and stimulants should be taken in moderation. Alcohol and drugs of all kinds should be avoided.


Career and Occupation

Cancers' spirit is a combination of adventurer and seeker of stability. They will be very ambitious and will work hard to reach their goals. Cancerians could excel as directors of a corporation, while also participating in the technical operations, including law. In other words, they will be versatile and able to excel in several different areas, giving them a broad scope of expertise in their field of business or profession. If they become a factory owner or interior designers they will know every aspect of their factory or place of work. If they are creative craftspeople, they will also sell their own products; if they are actors or musicians, they will be their own manager. If Cancerians work for another person they will rarely agree with the boss. Their sense of authority will often conflict with rules or methods imposed by others. Cancerians must learn to trust their own initiative and to work in a persevering way to turn their ideas into reality. There will be money in their future and they will show their love for it. A Cancer career choice could be to become one of the following: manager, accountant, craftsperson, computer programmer, baker, designer, decorator, architect, broadcaster, author, publisher, law enforcement officer, member of the military, doctor, mechanic, postal employee, railway worker, schoolteacher, newsagent, taxi driver, hairdresser, typist, transportation worker, nanny, hospitality worker, housemaid, palmist, actor, public servant, landowner, self-employed tradesperson, second-hand dealer, fire-fighter.

he main point is that Cancerians will learn to do many things and will develop themselves in many different ways, becoming effective as employees as well as employers. Once they decide on a profession, career or job, they will give it all they have and can be quite a perfectionist if they wish to. Their reliable and caring abilities will give them much satisfaction in any job that requires care of and attention to others. They may even enjoy all aspects related to food and nutrition and would make an excellent naturopath or dietician, or a superb chef or restaurateur. Many Cancerians prefer the land and make wonderful farmers, market gardeners or food store wholesalers and retailers. Being such careful and insecure people, money will always be an important issue with them and much joy could be achieved working in the fields of finance, investment counselling and business administration. They will always possess a wonderful inner strength and determination when it comes to setting career goals and they will be recognised by their bosses and superiors for their successful achievements. In most cases they will always finish what they start and are unlikely to be swayed by those who endeavour to change their course of action. They certainly are suited to working with adults and children.


The Cancer Woman

The Cancerian woman has a very special quality of character. She is emotional, changeable, fascinating and very loving. Home and family matters are important to her; she may also resist major change in her daily routine. Cancer women can be unpredictable, possessive and reluctant to let go of a situation. Their psychic awareness is often spot-on and, in most cases, they are fully aware of things before they happen. Cancerians need emotional and financial security; they can be extremely dramatic, self-indulgent and quite selfish. Cancer women love to have familiar things around them at home: photographs, collector's items, old books and antiques. They are very protective of family and friends and always seem to attract other people's problems. They find it difficult not to worry about others when, in actual fact, they should keep their nose in their own backyard. For when Cancer women worry on goes the weight, through overindulgence with food.

Cancer women are overly protective of their siblings, to the point of smothering them. Drama is Cancer's middle name, and not a day goes by without something to worry her or a downright emergency. The Cancer woman lives in a state of continual anxiety, making mountains out of molehills. Gardening or pottering around the home relieves her of daily tension. It is important for her to take regular exercise or play some form of sport to reduce the waistline and lower the stress. Cancerians are known to be manipulative. Nothing is too mundane or insignificant to launch her imagination into the fourth dimension. She can be very thin-skinned, petty, secretive and vengeful at times. Cancerians are also vulnerable to criticism and aggression when they are uncomfortable with a situation, especially when around people who lack social conscience or personal sensitivity. Cancer women are packed with a highly sexual, sensual side to their personality, which the opposite sex finds hard to resist. In fact, the Cancer woman is a very desirable partner who commits herself fully to the person she loves. Sex is something she lives and breathes. With her mysterious deep personality she always creates mystery in the way she walks, loves and smiles. If a Cancer woman loves you, she is yours for life.


The Cancer Man

The Cancerian man is deep, complex, emotional, intuitive and reserved. He takes life seriously. When he sets his heart on a goal he is capable of dedicated follow-through. Security, both emotional and material, is important to the Cancer man; he is very practical in these matters. Settling in and putting down roots to nurture and raise his family in a safe, sheltered environment is one of his primary objectives. He will pour loving, devoted energy into this high-priority goal in his life; the home and family will be a source of infinite joy and fulfilment for him. Cancer man can be stubborn; if you push him he will dig in his heels and make things difficult. Cancer withdraws into himself; needing privacy. He also needs to retreat when hurt. Cancerians can be moody and, at times, even stormy, restless or touchy, and you may not be sure how to approach them. They can also be somewhat negative, depressed and defeatist in attitude.

The Cancer man can be sexy. His loving nature is sensual, intense and sometimes very possessive. Never cross a Cancerian; they have a memory like an elephant and will always remind you of your past escapades. Home comforts are important to the Cancer man; his home will be his haven, a cosy refuge of peace, comfort and warmth, and a place to store his knick-knacks. Some Cancerians are hoarders of old goods; they don't like throwing things away. These men love a touch of luxury and appreciate the best, although they hate to spend their hard-earned cash. Some have champagne tastes on a beer income.

Socialising is a joy for the Cancer man. He is an extremely gregarious person and loves to circulate and catch up with his friends and acquaintances. When frequenting his favourite cafe, hotel or club he will usually sit at his favourite table or stand in his favourite corner. Compliments give him a buzz; they provide his morale and confidence with a pleasant lift. Peaceful, harmonious relations are a profound joy for him. Indeed, he places great value on harmony. Cancerians are true friends with both men and women. They are light hearted, with a great spirit, and respond to positive energy in others. Showing and receiving kindness gives them much pleasure. Prestige, status and position mean a great deal to them. Cancer men make good in any career that brings them before the public.
