Cancer woman - 22 June - 23 July
I would like to introduce the Cancerian woman with 5 C’s : Crazy, creative, calculative, compassionate and confused. The Cancer woman displays signs of sudden mood swings. She can be happy as a lark one minute and down in the dumps the next… and each mood would be as genuine as the next governed largely by impulsive crazy or in an extreme case depressing thoughts. The Cancer girl nevertheless has soulful laughter and a good sense of humour. But her sensitivity is the hallmark of her personality traits…
There is a crab-like trait in her too. Innately shy and reserved, a Cancer woman would rarely make the first move… in love, business or any walk of life. She needs an understanding partner to draw her out and help her emote well.
Even the most career oriented woman has her heart at home. A complete ‘home’ person, cooking and keeping her house in order constitute her favourite activities. She is a warm and affectionate person and likes to pamper her loved ones. You can trust her to bundle you off to bed with a hot chocolate on a cold night.
Extremely careful with her money, the Cancer girl likes nothing more than a fat bank balance and a protective man in her life. She has a thing for security, be it emotional or financial, which is a kind of obsession with her.
How can you identify a Cancer woman in a crowd?
This may sound funny but I have observed a good number of Cancer women to have an almond shaped face. Some of them deep pocket and small eyes. They are usually extroverts by nature. A Cancer woman is warm and friendly and in a crowd she is likely to be the most popular person on the scene.
Most women I have met or observed are extremely particular about their dressing. And coordinating their clothes with accessories like hand bags, belts and shoes is a must for Cancer women.
What are the general traits of her personality?
There are two types of Cancer women: 30% aggressive and 70% passive. The aggressive kind is extremely competitive and loud. She always wants to be on top of everything and can also be overly demanding and ambitious. Completely unpredictable by nature, some are found pursuing careers in the televison or film industry.
Cancer women are extremely blunt and forthright although none of them want to intentionally hurt others but their sharp tongues often end up hurting people’s feelings. The aggressive kind of Cancer women is usually an achiever and will relentlessly pursue what she sets her mind at. She is not shy to use her femininity to her advantage as and when situation demands.
The 70% passive kind of Cancer woman too is unpredictable and very moody. She is essentially a romantic at heart and could go to any end to get what she wants as far as romance is concerned. She is very emotional and sentimental as well as hyper sensitive, being with her can be a tight rope walk.
Is there more to her personality?
The ‘more’ in her personality is actually the ‘less’. What I mean is she has less of the unsightly traits that are prominent in women of other signs. For instance she isn’t bossy or outspoken or fickle or proud. She is your simple girl-next-door that has a thing for sentiments. A homely affectionate person, she yearns for emotional security. Once she gets that in her partner, she would stand by him at all times.
A Cancer woman can be very practical and is usually very graceful in getting her demands fulfilled. She can be patient yet watchful if it is something that she desires/fancies, in a situation of delay, she might let go of it. But if her heart is set on something she will make sure she gets it.
Cancer women can get hyper in any emotional situation, whether difficult or otherwise. They can scream, shout, hit and throw to get their emotions out. Mostly a Cancer woman will go on and on about it in her head, but it is all very subjective and depends on the gravity of the situation.
How is a Cancer woman when in love?
Love can bring the best out of this woman. The amazing feel and sense of pride of true love gets reflected on her face and you would instantly know how deeply she cherishes it. Although in her usual way, she would be reserved about her feelings, yet the frequent happy moods that she finds herself in would be instant giveaways.
While in love, she would literally lay her heart out for her lover. Nothing about her is shallow or casual hence she would not only take her love affair very seriously, but also walk the extra mile to make it happening.
A Cancer woman is quite romantic in the conventional sense of the term and once you get used to her hyper sensitivity, your love journey with her would be a pleasant one. She will shower you with gifts and praises, cook your favourite food and take care of you very much like your mother. Her love is for keeps and she will never give you a chance to get suspicious or jealous. Her actions, gestures and words will all proclaim her love for you… and mean it too.
While dating her, you should…
…be chivalrous. The Cancer girl is romantic, albeit in a very traditional sense. She would expect her date to be gentlemanly and courteous, if not the actual knight in shining armour.
Like I had mentioned before, you should be careful with your words while dating her as she is hyper sensitive. Her emotional quotient is also rather high, so it is advisable to plunge into a relationship with her only if you are thinking of long term bonding. A short fling or a passing affair is a term unknown to the true Cancerian unless she is looking for it to get over a break up or just looking for fun... A few dates down, you will have to either go ahead or back off. The Cancer girl can get emotionally involved pretty quickly and pulling off after a few dates might be a difficult thing to do.
Take her to a restaurant with excellent food and beautiful ambience. Nothing will evoke the romantic in her as music, milieu and cuisine. Draw her out of her shell and let her talk. Once she is in the comfort zone with you, she will fill your heart with warmth and the room with her tinkling laughter. She can talk eloquently when she chooses too, so give her space and time to open up and you will be spending your date with the most wonderful companion.
How is she on the following aspects?
Appearance: Women of this zodiac sign usually have an oval (almond shape) face, with a pleasant smile adorning it. They are naturally drawn into keeping themselves well groomed
They are usually obsessed with their appearance and would indulge in splurging on clothes, shoes and other accessories to get that‘perfect’ look.
Ambition: Most Cancer women are ambitious. They yearn to be independent but are yet not shy to be dependent. By which I mean she could be comfortable being a home maker given the right kind of respect and sense of independence and control at home. In short, she has to be in charge of everything.
Ego/Self-respect: Quick to react to people and situations, the Cancer woman scores high on ego and self-respect. Though she won’t pick a fight with anyone unless pushed beyond endurance, once riled up, her ego won’t allow her to give in easily. Her typical Cancerian trait of opining with her practical bent of mind doesn’t always go down well with people around her. Yet, she would defend her stand tooth and nail, taking it as an attack on her ego and self-respect.
Although most Cancer women will not accept it, they do have a big ego. A Cancer woman is unable to take any form of criticism and would take shelter under being hypersensitive and would rarely accept she is wrong, even if she is. Since she is vulnerable to criticism and it can blow her lid off…it’s better to avoid it.
Dealing with sensitivity and putting-up with nagging or coming back from work to a warm, glowing home and a dining table full of wonderful aroma…which one’s for you? I know everyone would jump at the latter, but dear reader you will get both sides of the bargain when you date or marry a Cancerian girl. Find out who amongst the zodiac is best suited to the emotionally charged Cancerian.
Cancer woman and…
Aries man: 6/10. This relationship can work well if both are able to keep certain personality traits under check. The Aries man will not like being constantly pampered or treated like a child, while the Cancer woman is not capable of standing the blunt and straightforward words of the Arien.
Taurus man: 9/10. This combination can hit the bull’s eye. He has the ability to love and care for her and most importantly give her the security she craves for. On the other hand, she is the perfect mate for him as she can cook well and keep a good house for him…things that are important to the Taurean as well.
Gemini man: 9/10. The Gemini with his usual panache can do wonders to this relationship. He has the vivacity to attract and draw the reclusive Cancer out of her shell, while she has the feminine charm to impress his manly heart. The Cancerian however will have to keep her hypersensitivity under check.
Cancer man: 8/10. The success of this relationship will largely depend on the emotional security that both the crabs have. If one of them is able to take stock of the emotional balance, this bonding can go a long way. Moreover, both will have to keep their mood swings under control.
Leo man: 9/10. This relationship is a perfect blend of loyalty and love. Since the Cancerian will remain committed towards the Leo, he would be more than happy in her company. Moreover she would let him be in charge and load him with motherly care and attention, something the Leo guy won’t be able to resist.
Virgo man: 9/10. Another relationship that can stand the test of time! Both are equally romantic as well as dependable and sincere. Although the Virgo lacks interest on the home front, the Cancerian has enough culinary talent to make him stay back with her at home.
Libra man: 6/10. This combination can swing either way. If both show understanding of each other’s basic needs, this relationship can work out better. The Libran will have to go slow on his intellectual trips while the Cancerian will have to learn to be less emotionally dependant.
Scorpio man: 8/10. She is romantic and he is passionate. He is masculine and she is feminine. And both are almost faithful and sincere. This relationship has the potential of going a long way.
Sagittarius man: 4/10: The Sagittarian outspokenness may not go down too well with the Cancerian sensitivity. After the initial attraction, things might get a bit difficult as he will dislike being tied down and she will object to his flirtatious ways.
Capricorn man: 7/10: A difficult yet not impossible combination! The Cancerian for once will have to make the first move and draw the Capricorn out of his reserve. The Capricorn on the other hand will have to adjust to the excessive emotional demands of the Cancerian.
Aquarius man: 5/10: This is a case of opposites and although opposites attract they are not necessarily compatible. She would interpret his freedom as negligence while he would think her emotional bonding as excessive neediness. It can be a clash between emotion and intellect.
Pisces man: 9.5/10: This combination is near perfect. His imaginative mind is a true match to her feminine heart. He will shower her with love, affection and care and give her the support and security she needs. The Cancerian can make her world revolve around the Piscean—believe in his dreams, be supportive and make him feel ‘he’s the only one’.
