Cancer zodiac sign

You love feeling secure and being surrounded by the people you love. Even though you are known for having a soft and tender nature, you also have a tough side that you display when necessary. 

Qualities that Make You Stand Out 

The crab is the sign for the Cancer zodiac, which looks like ’69’ or a crab resting sideways. The 69 is said to represent the breasts of a woman or the claws of a crab. 

Cancer is the fourth of the zodiac and represents home life, family, and personal origins. Sensitivity is your stronger personality trait because you tend to easily absorb the emotions of others. Cancers are also very creative and easily inspired, which allows you to express all your emotions freely.

You’re always ready to do what it takes to keep your loved ones happy and to make sure they remain close to you. Anyone who dares to attempt to hurt the people close to you will see your angry side, and you don’t mind severing ties with these people once you see they have ill intent. However, there is a part of your that is extremely fragile. While you don’t have a problem standing up for friends and family, you tend to avoid conflict when you have to stick up for yourself. You have a tendency to become withdrawn if you think this will keep you from arguing with others. You can’t stand having quarrels with your significant other and need to feel that you’re always on the same page with your sweetheart to feel secure. 

Cancer Challenges 

While you aren’t naturally manipulative, you have a tendency to be very moody and can easily become irritable. When you need a pick-me-up, try to get close to a body of water to relax your body and mind. Being near a lake or at the beach will help you temporarily escape from the issues that are causing you distress. It’s necessary for you to take time away from your busy schedule or from tending to your family and friends so you can take time for yourself. 

You are naturally charming because you’re a sensitive soul, but this also means that you have a tendency to be naive. This quality can be annoying to the people who are closest to you, so it’s important to be very aware of your surroundings so you can 
have the maturity to deal with unexpected situations. You should make sure you take the time to relax, because your mood swings can make it difficult for your loved ones to be honest around you. You have to learn how to control your emotions when people give you feedback or share their feelings with you. Your childlike nature means that you have to constantly be reassured, and this can be taxing on the people who are important to you. 

How You Relate to Family and Friends 

While your relatives and friend group may see your unassuming nature as a flaw, you think your naivety is the key to happiness. You try to keep yourself far from negative energy, and you don’t like to criticize others or be around people you don’t trust. You are a kind soul, so you only want to be surrounded by kindness. This is why being around your children, spouse, family members, and close friends is a source of true joy for you. You also like to give others advice and are visibly happy when they adhere to your counsel.

Your Romantic Tendencies 

As a Cancer, you are considered the “dreamer” of the zodiac sign. You desire love above anything else, and your sense of imagination is vivid. You often tend to romanticize all aspects of your relationships and will create fairytales in your mind. This is an endearing quality, but you have to be careful not to look too far into the future, especially in the beginning of a new relationship. However, because you are so in love with love, you enjoy being in committed, long-term relationships. 

Because you are empathetic, you are a great lover, but you also know how to be a friend and confidant to your significant other. You know how to keep your lover’s secrets to yourself, and you listen sympathetically so those who are close to you feel supported and protected. 

You are able to adapt your mindest so that you can understand your sweetheart’s perspective, and you have heightened intuition, which is why your advice is always customized and accurate. Your lover often feels at ease opening up to you because you are caring and honest. Since your partner knows they can trust you, this will create an unbreakable bond between the two of you. Since you have such an adaptable personality, your sweetheart doesn’t mind taking you to different events and social gatherings, since you can find a way to be comfortable no matter where you are.

You are also very resilient in your relationships, including romantic partnerships. You know that anything easy is probably not worth it. You know that relationships are not always pleasant or easy, but you’re built to take on the challenge. However, your significant other will soon see that being with you is not always easy. While you love to give advice, you don’t like being told what to do. You are at your best when you’re free to do the things you love, and you don’t take kindly to people trying to stifle your spirit in any way. 

Even though you hate being lonely, you’re actually good at spending time by yourself. You prefer to stay at home instead of always going out to social gatherings, and despite loving your family and friends immensely, you value your alone time. You want to shower your significant other with attention, but you value your sense of independence and don’t want to depend on others for your comfort. 

Another reason why you’re so good at relationships is because you’re open-minded. Your partner knows that you accept them for who they are, and they will show a sense of gratitude for your acceptance of them. You are attracted to your partner’s quirks or shortcomings because you belive these things make people more interesting. As a Cancer, you’ll likely find that you boost your partner’s confidence, because you celebrate aspects of your lover’s personality that are unattractive to others. This is yet another way that you march to the beat of your own drum and refuse to follow the crowd. 

You know how to celebrate your partner’s accomplishments, and you don’t try to get all the attention when you and your mate attend events together or hosts guests in your home. You don’t need to be in the spotlight, but you also don’t mind showing your individuality. That’s why you also need a partner who is free-spirited and comfortable with who they are. 

Your Attitude In the Workplace 

As a Cancer, you’re a natural go-getter and don’t need to be micro-managed. Even though you’re often seen as extremely sensitive, you love to share your ideas and inspire others to explore their creativity. Due to your closeness with your relatives and friends, you tend to pursue careers that allow you to improve the lives of others. You thrive in a work environment that is welcoming and warm. You need to be in a positive setting no matter what job you take on. Even if your career is challenging or time-consuming, you can be successful if you’re surrounded by the right energy. 

You’ll likely do well in jobs that place a high value on community and culture. You’ll naturally be friendly and engaging in the workplace. However, if anyone at work offends or disrespects you, your natural inclination is to “make them pay.” If you feel that someone doesn’t value your sensitive nature, you can become distant, and will retreat into a shell — like a crab. However, as long as your emotional needs are acknowledged and met at work, you will be loyal to your job and committed to doing your best work. You also have no problem congratulating your colleagues and complimenting them on a job well done. You appreciate gifts, plaques, and awards for your hard work. But you have to remember not to get offended when people aren’t as thoughtful as you are when it comes to gift-giving in a work setting. 

Since you are loyal and responsible when it comes to your job, you exhibit these same characteristics with your budget. However, Saturn in the Cancer sign indicates that there will be a time when you have to restrict your spending or wait patiently for an investment you’ve made to yield a profit. You are very responsible with your household budget and will likely do very well working in real estate. 

Signs Cancers Are Most Compatible With 

Cancers will likely pair well with Scorpios in friendships and romantic relationships. With a Scorpio by your side, your relationship will be filled with positive energy. A Scorpio is the ideal match for you when you want to have a passionate relationship with someone who truly understands what you’re looking for in a partner. You may also find love with a Leo, but it’s common for Cancers to have Leo friends, since they will serve as protectors. This energy is beneficial when you’re gearing up to achieve an important goal in your life or career. 

Signs Cancers Are Least Compatible With 

Cancers are least compatible with Libras and Aries. Since you are born under the fourth sign, you are emotionally fragile and you could have relationship conflicts with signs who are not as sensitive. If you’ve ever felt manipulated or made to feel that you’re “weak,” the energy was likely coming from these two signs. Libras and Aries tend to make you feel emotionally drained, and you may find that you lose your confidence around these signs.

Cancer represents gestation and the womb, and it is said that this sign represents the gateway for souls to begin the incarnation process.
