Chances are you won’t hit it off too well with the man born under Cancer if your plans are love. But then, Cupid has been known to do some pretty unlikely things. The Cancer man is very sensitive—thin-skinned and occasionally moody. You’ve got to keep on your toes—and not step on his—if you’re determined to make a go of the relationship. The Cancer man may be lacking in some of the qualities you seek in a man. But when it comes to being faithful and being a good provider, he’s hard to beat.
The perceptive woman will not mistake the Crab’s quietness for sullenness or his thriftiness for penny-pinching. In some respects, he is like that wise old owl out on a limb; he may look like he’s dozing but actually he hasn’t missed a thing.
Cancer people often possess a well of knowledge about human behavior. They can come across with some pretty helpful advice to those in trouble or in need. He can certainly guide you in making investments both in time and money. He may not say much, but he’s always got his wits about him.
Cancer may not be the match or catch for the sociable Libra woman. At times, you are likely to find him downright dull. True to his sign, he can be fairly cranky and crabby when handled the wrong way. He is perhaps more sensitive than he should be.
If you’re smarter than your Cancer friend, be smart enough not to let him know. Never give him the idea that you think he’s a little short on brainpower. It would send him scurrying back into his shell—and all that ground lost in the relationship will perhaps never be recovered.
The Crab is most himself at home. Once settled down for the night or the weekend, wild horses couldn’t drag him farther than the gatepost—that is, unless those wild horses were dispatched by his mother. The Crab is sometimes a Momma’s boy. If his mate does not put her foot down, he will see to it that his mother always comes first. No self-respecting wife would ever allow herself to play second fiddle to her mother-in-law. With a little bit of tact, however, she’ll find that slipping into that number-one position is as easy as pie (that legendary one his mother used to bake).
If you pamper your Cancer man, you’ll find that Mother turns up less and less, at the front door as well as in conversations.
Cancers make proud, patient, and protective fathers. But they can be a little too protective. Their sheltering instincts can interfere with a youngster’s natural inclination to test the waters outside the home. Still, the Cancer father doesn’t want to see his kids learning about life the hard way from the streets. Your qualities of grace and refinement, fairness and tolerance will help the youngsters cope with a variety of life situations.
