On today’s agenda I will be talking about my zodiac sign (star sign) Cancer. Obviously each zodiac sign apparently has it’s own traits, and whether you agree with it or not I will be going through mine and lets see how much of it is actually true.
The website I have chosen for this is: https://www.astrology-zodiac-signs.com/ because I’m familiar with it from a previous encounter, so if you want to check out yours you can here too.
Information On Cancer Astrology
Day: Monday, Thursday
Greatest Overall Compatibility: Capricorn, Taurus
Lucky Numbers: 2, 3, 15, 20
Date range: June 21 – July 22
Opinion: This is just basic information for me. Never been with a Capricorn, but I think that I’ve been with two Taurus girls, and to be honest despite how it ended up they probably were the best out of the bunch (but the others I do know of were Scorpios), but I have no opinion on the rest lol, just basic stuff.
Strengths: Tenacious, highly imaginative, loyal, emotional, sympathetic, persuasive
Weaknesses: Moody, pessimistic, suspicious, manipulative, insecure
Cancer likes: Art, home-based hobbies, relaxing near or in water, helping loved ones, a good meal with friends
Cancer dislikes: Strangers, any criticism of Mom, revealing of personal life
“Deeply intuitive and sentimental, Cancer can be one of the most challenging zodiac signs to get to know. They are very emotional and sensitive, and care deeply about matters of the family and their home. Cancer is sympathetic and attached to people they keep close. Those born with their Sun in Cancer are very loyal and able to empathize with other people’s pain and suffering.
The sign of Cancer belongs to the element of Water, just like Scorpio and Pisces. Guided by emotion and their heart, they could have a hard time blending into the world around them. Being ruled by the Moon, phases of the lunar cycle deepen their internal mysteries and create fleeting emotional patterns that are beyond their control. As children, they don’t have enough coping and defensive mechanisms for the outer world, and have to be approached with care and understanding, for that is what they give in return.
Lack of patience or even love will manifest through mood swings later in life, and even selfishness, self-pity or manipulation. They are quick to help others, just as they are quick to avoid conflict, and rarely benefit from close combat of any kind, always choosing to hit someone stronger, bigger, or more powerful than they imagined. When at peace with their life choices, Cancer representatives will be happy and content to be surrounded by a loving family and harmony in their home.
Cancer – the Brave Crab Sent to this Earth by something they believe in, only to mess with someone bigger than they are, this isn’t an animal aware of their strength. Patriotism can make them endanger their own wellbeing, fighting for someone else’s cause, as if others can become their higher power. The Crab knows where they’re going, but this is often in a wrong direction, at least until they learn their lessons and start relying solely on themselves.”
Opinion: I think the strengths and weaknesses are pretty accurate lol. With the likes and dislikes, I definitely do not like water lol, and I definitely do not like being anywhere near it lol. And to be honest with you, I never used to like revealing anything about my personal life, but now I don’t mind. Although, there are some things that I still wouldn’t reveal (but it depends on the person). And criticism of Mum can only be fair criticism as I’ve done so myself, so I don’t think that’s correct either but everything else is fine.
Moving on to the paragraph below, I actually do agree with it entirely, although I am starting to learn how to control my emotions and rely solely on myself.
CANCER LOVE AND SEX
“Cancer is a very emotional sign, and feelings are the most important thing in their relationships. Gentle and caring, they will show their sensibility to the world without even thinking they might get hurt. For partners, they always choose a person who is able to understand them through non-verbal, silent contact, and a shared daily routine, and their affection won’t last long with superficial, flaky or unreliable partners. The lack of initiative these individuals suffer from won’t make it easy for them to build a sex life they wish for, if they don’t find a partner who is able to make them feel calm, protected, and free to express.
This is a dedicated sign, ready to make many unhealthy compromises only to keep their image of a family going, and could choose partners who are in a way selfish of abusive. Shared responsibility and a life together with their partner makes them feel secure and ready for the next step in life, no matter if it is a child, a new job, or simply a cleanup in the field of friendships and relationships that became obsolete or hurtful. In love with children, parenthood, marriage and traditional values, they can still be misguided by people they admire and trust into changing their honest approach to a modern one that doesn’t fit their true personality.
Compassion and understanding that a Cancer chose to send your way shouldn’t ever be taken for granted, or they will show you just how bad of a match you two are in the long run.”
Opinion: Errrrmmmmm, this is an interesting one. I’m going to pick out a few things I would say I mostly agree with then add my own points to them. I do feel being calm, COMFORTABLE, protected, and free to express is very important because if I can be in my most natural state with somebody, it’ll be not just beneficial for me, but my partner. I don’t know about “shared daily routine” I don’t think it matters that much, and of course superficial and etc. partners are a no-no.
In my core I do want to follow the traditional route etc. but the way things have gone for me there, there seems to be a reoccurring pattern or trend whenever I start talking to a female, so the emotion isn’t really there anymore as I’m expecting them to “ghost on me” so its more like “Let’s just see how long this one lasts,” and I’m not trying to marry someone for them to dip. So the emotion in that respect hasn’t been touched in a loong while, but I do mostly agree with everything here (we just hoping).
CANCER FRIENDS AND FAMILY
“Friends – When it comes to friendships, Cancer representatives will gladly connect with new social contacts, but are extremely sensitive of people not approved by their closest surrounding. Filled with respect for people they communicate to easily, they see all contacts through their emotional prism rather than simple curiosity or status. Most of all they enjoy socializing at home, where intimate atmosphere can be made and deep understanding shared in circumstances under their control. Intuitive and compassionate, they are sometimes impossible to understand from an extremely rational point of view.”
“Family – Cancer is the sign of family and these individuals care about family bonds and their home more than any other sign of the zodiac. Deeply sentimental, they tend to diligently preserve family memories, keeping them intact for years. When their personal lives are fulfilled, they make wonderful, caring parents that seem to know how they children feel even when they are miles apart.”
Opinion: I think this is correct to be honest. Have nothing else to say.
CANCER CAREER AND MONEY
“When a job needs to get done, a Cancer will roll their sleeves up and finish it successfully. If they are left alone to work, they usually perform better than when surrounded by other people, loyal to their employer and focused on the task. They will have great careers as nurses, housekeepers, gardeners, politicians and decorators.
For Cancer representatives, security and money are of great importance and stand for the real reason they work as much as they do. They easily earn money and aren’t used to spending it all in one day. It is their goal to save, invest, and watch their investments grow daily. Resourceful and good at managing time and finances, this is a sign that is often in charge of all money in the household, keeping their partner or other family members under control.”
Opinion: First and foremost, fuck all of those careers lol. But moving on to the actual paragraphs I do feel I can work both in a team and my own. Of course, I love the peace of doing my own thing and not being disturbed, but at the same time, I love working in a team, so I don’t think it really matters. I always do want to finish a task as I feel I have failed otherwise, so yes 100% to that as well.
Coming on to the money thing I think that is mostly spot on. I do not like spending money at all lol, and only spend when I NEED to. The rest of the money is kept away for savings and other things, so I have no qualms with the second paragraph (although the jobs I have done will not have me “working hard” as I do not care for these retail companies and vice versa tbh).
HOW TO ATTRACT THE CANCER MAN
“A Cancer man is conservative just enough to know that initiative is important, but often fails to show it before he feels safe to do so. His partners need to make the first move, but still doing it subtly to let him still feel like he is leading the way. This is a complex individual, very sensitive, shy and overly protective of his loved ones. When he prefers women, he will subconsciously search for the ideal wife and mother.
A Cancer man is an emotional person, who loves to take care of other people. He wants to feel needed, and protective, receiving a lot of attention from his partner through kind words and subtle concerns and compliments to make his day. Although he can be moody, pessimistic and clingy, he is a creative and generous partner in search for someone to share a life with.”
Opinion: Weeeeellllllll. Let me just go through this. I feel this used to be very me, but let’s talk about now. The “making the first move thing” is probably true, even if subtly done (but not to make me feel I’m leading the way). It shows that you’re interested because I’m not going to bother you otherwise, but once I know you’re interested and I am too, I can do the job, and I also feel the last sentence of the first paragraph is very true.
In terms of the second paragraph, I do agree with the generosity, taking care of people (and being moody). But the other things need to be put to the side and described by me personally. I mean, everyone wants to feel needed, but not in a “full-on” way like this sounds, please. I don’t even care about the compliments, just show you are down. The only two things I honestly care about are consistency and communication, and it’s only when I see or feel a difference in the normal pattern of those two things is when I feel a bit (I don’t know the word). The reason I put those two things on a pedestal is that I truly believe everything else will fall in place from those. So it’s not a matter of I need your attention every single second because that’s crazy, I just want to know that you still want to do this, and of course, “share a life with me.”
But that was the final category on my zodiac sign, and for any Cancers who read this let me know your thoughts on it. If you want to check out your own star sign, the website that I got this from is linked above, and for my fellow cancers, I’ll end this post with today’s horoscope 😊.
“You are still inspired, even with Mars in your first house pushing all your buttons at the same time. However angry or distracted you might be by emotions that are difficult and rough, you are still carrying the same inner child as the essence of your self-expression and personality.
There is no need to try too hard to control things that are clear and obvious. Don’t fall into the loop of fear and struggle when there are enough clear, loving emotions to feed you and keep your going.”
