The Expansive Heart
Cancer has so much to give. Truly, she's got a heart of gold. She's also surprisingly outgoing and independent — and she's able to show the world what she's made of. In fact, she's definitely not the wallflower some astrologers make her out to be! She's a cardinal sign — meaning, of course, that she secretly likes to dominate. In other words, you won't find a Cancer bowing to another sign. She's regal. She knows how to turn things around to her advantage. Cancer has the world at her fingertips. How she chooses to use this awesome power depends on her.
Cancers also have incredible insight into dealing with the world. They know when to lay back and when to charge forward. Yes, they can be sly and manipulative. These traits, though, will disappear as they get older and learn. Eventually, they'll be able to somehow fit into society and adhere to its “strict” (to them) social demands.
At the same time, Cancers don't really like to march to the beat of the same drum as others. Though they're not as radical as Aquarians, they do like to go against the grain. Strangely enough, however, Cancers like a partner who fits into a traditional role. While Aquarians search out a mate who definitely can't be pegged into any one category, Cancer wants someone who will meet with the appreciation and approval of his family. Real respect from a Cancer is very hard to come by. It may seem as if he's made you his world, but unless he also wants to make you part of his family, you've got nothing coming. A Cancer will immediately settle down when he finds the one for him.
If a Cancer man or woman is stalling to get married, it probably means that it won't happen. Cancer, when he finds the one for him, will not hesitate to procure a ring and rush to the altar. He needs to know his future is set and happily secure.
Here's the key to a happy Cancer life: a regime that lets her be social when she feels like it or to stay at home and hide when she wants. Don't be fooled by gregarious Cancer. She likes her digs as much or more than she likes the bar and “out” life. In fact, tranquility is essential to the Crab. She'll do everything she can in order to maintain this relaxed and idealistic life vision.
Also, Cancers are almost always cordial. They know how to deal with different types of people and how to make them feel comfortable and included. Compliments run freely from the mouths of Cancers. When they choose, they can be effectively politically correct. When they're out and about, they can come off as Fire signs because they're very good at striking up a conversation. They're also quite sexy and charismatic, and they have an exceptional flair for putting outfits together to show off their best assets.
Cancers are also great empathizers. They'll rarely pity someone for bad fortune — Cancer believes you should take charge of the situation and deal with it. They also have two strong, genuine shoulders to cry on. One thing you may notice about Cancer is that she'll tell you what she thinks, but she'll rarely lecture you about anything. Instead, she'll simply say the way things are, according to her. If you've done something wrong, Cancer will be the first to tell you — but only if you ask for advice.
A Cancer will not give unsolicited information. If, however, you get specific instructions or advice, you should pay attention. Cancer is able to look at the big picture and get a clear understanding of what's going on — things you wouldn't normally notice.
