Scorpio: Both are empathic, intuitive and intellectual. Cancer can handle Scorpio’s ability to be vindictive where Scorpio can help Cancer through its worrisome cycles. In many ways, it is thought both water signs are the perfect match. See Scorpio and Cancer post.
I am a scorpion female madly in love with a cancer male who is 14 years younger than I am. In the beginning he acted like he was really feeling me but once we had sex he started distancing himself. Taking long to text/call back, waiting 3weeks to see/have sex again. He says he is focused on making money so he can be set in the next 5 years but he always makes time with his friends. Everytime I try and break it off thinking he’s just not that into me he reels me back in! Ugh I’m so frustrated because I really love him but am I wasting my time!?
Keep in mind, however, that the Cancer man is a little more withdrawn and may resist your affections if he believes that you’re coming on too fast. Inviting him back to your place for a meal the first time you meet him will probably end in rejection. Wait until you have already established some sort of bond with him before you extend an invitation into your home.
Men born under the sign of the Crab can be more attached to a romantic ideal than to reality – so the man you meet online or long-distance may be very different than the one you get to know. Are you compatible with your Cancer man? Find out here. Cancers can be incredibly possessive and jealous – always fearing that what they have will be taken from them or slip away. It’s often the case that extremely jealous people can become cheaters themselves, so make sure you set clear boundaries about what both of you want from your commitment.
Artistic – Oh boy! There are very few signs that are as artistically gifted as Cancer. He could be the greatest guitar guru, creative on canvas, or skilled with the skill saw. No matter what area he feels drawn to master, there will be no avoiding his artistic side. Not that it’ll be a problem, as it just makes him sexier.
These men often end up working in the family business and will take on a role within that established structure to keep the tradition alive, even if it’s not their passion. They do best with working for or with good friends, though they will always be most loyal to their significant other and family – all other considerations come second. Working from home can be desirable for a Cancerian – it’s where they feel safest, and have control over their personal work environment – though sometimes they feel too isolated from being part of a team, a set-up in which kindred-seeking Cancers thrive.
With his date, time and location of birth these other factors can be calculated for a complete picture of his personality. To explore this further please see my article on astrology compatibility readings.
Astrology makes an interesting study Red. It really cannot be used alone, and we all have several dozen signs in different areas that make up our “personalities” and predict how we might act or behave naturally, which is why I wrote about that in the beginning.
Never confess your feelings directly. Dealing with a Cancer man can be incredibly complex and may test your patience. As someone who likes to assume the traditional male role in a relationship, he will probably want to confess his feelings first and may find you less attractive if you jump first. On the other hand, you have to make your feelings so obviously clear to him that he has very little reason to doubt your attraction to him.
Romantic and devoted, he takes relationships and his partner seriously, and once settled with a mate he enjoys the home and everything associated with it. Cancer men are also often exceptionally friendly and love to help others and feel needed. That man at your office who offers hugs when you’re feeling down is probably a Cancer… (as a side note, this can be construed as flirting, often where it isn’t intended)
Cancer is a naturally nurturing sign. If they care, then they tend to show it fairly obviously and readily. Hugs, questions about your day, troubles, worries, picking up on your moods etc are a good indicator. On the other side of things, withdrawing if offended or hurt is an equally good indicator. If they care about someone they become very easily offended by that person.
This is often a match made in Heaven! Although the Scorpio woman and Cancer man have very different personalities, they complement each other well. The jealous nature of the Scorpion would be soothed by the Crab’s total devotion, and both would seek to establish a harmonious family and home.
A Cancer man is sensitive to his partner’s emotions and has the need to connect on a deep level. If he was badly hurt by his family situation, there is a chance he will be too afraid to open up even with the seemingly perfect partner. He doesn’t like conflict and will in most crazy situations stay calm. When he is irritated by something, he will probably say nothing, but swallowing negative emotions might make him sick, so it is important for a Cancer to find a partner who will support his expression. He is tender and caring, will probably never forget his partner’s birthday, and could bore some of the zodiac signs crazy. If one is for adventure without emotional base or purpose, they definitely shouldn’t choose a Cancer partner.
Ask him for help when you move into a new office or apartment, or if you go shopping for a new car. If nothing quite so dramatic lies ahead of you, however, look for smaller excuses. For example, ask his opinion about a dilemma you have at work, even if you’ve secretly solved the issue yourself.
In line with the comments on shifting moods, sex can be highly variable and dynamic. If you’re in-tune with him this can make for a fantastic range of lovemaking styles, though often with an underlying romantic current and flavor. A skilled partner can use that emotional intensity to great advantage. An overly lazy or selfish partner may find it not so appealing.
Hi i am with a cancer man (ascendant leo and moon scorpio) i am virgo (ascendant capricorn and moon aries) its a love hate relationship i feel you have mentioned oreviosly that aries is it good for cancer is that true? Even having virgo and capricorn?
Prepare yourself for his possessiveness. Once a Cancer starts feeling attracted to you, he will probably become notably more possessive. If you want to nurture his growing attraction, you’ll need to find ways of coping with his perceived invasion into your personal space. If you push him away, he will probably stay away for good.
“What was the big f—ing deal?” she throws her hands up, exasperated. “I just wanted to have a glass of wine and talk about life, get to know each other better. It was like he couldn’t get over the damn rug. Who cares?”
From just someone’s sun sign however we can only predict some aspects of their personality and it’s too much of a leap to try and predict behavior from just those. Astrology has fairly precise limits. This is an example of an area where sun signs are just too broad and clumsy to give an answer. A real compatibility reading is required to answer the question.
Nurturing – Cancer men are the “mothers” of the zodiac. They need both to be nurtured and to nurture others, which often causes a strong bond with their mothers, making them appear as stereotypical “mama’s boys.” This trait is also the reason most cancer men make great family men.
Insecure – It is in the crab’s nature to distrust just about anything and anyone. That is what helps him survive in life. The real question is not whether or not you man is insecure, it’s how thick his shell is.
Great read. I’m a cancer man and I do agree with the article. although as I begin to age, I believe that I have either learned to control my mood swings or they have weakened. But I have had some relationships which left me no choice but to grow. I’m also very aware of my connection to the moon. When I feel the ‘low tide’ I know it’s only temporary and keep myself busy with tasks until it passes. Out of the suggested matches I’ve been with a Pisces, was deep spiritual connection but too irrational. A Scorpio, deep sexual connection but lacking in friendship. A Taurus, good friendship but not mature enough. And a Capricorn, probably the best match. Very complimentary in yin yang sense. If woman are trying to impress a cancer man. Be direct! We love being the object of a woman’s desire and want to know it. But be classy about it. If you are trying to keep a cancer man NEVER lie. Don’t flirt in front of us and don’t keep secrets. We notice everything
Show off your homemaking skills. After you get to know him a little, take the initiative and show off your ability to keep house in a very traditional manner. One of the easiest ways to do this is through cooking. Cook up a meal or treat for him, or invite him over to cook a complex recipe with you.
2nd: Cancer’s are very well known amongst astrologers for being one of the most romantic and most ‘clingy’ signs out there in stars. It’s because you care, you’re loyal and you totally believe in love at first sight. Even if you find a partner who is a down right horrible match for you, as a Cancer, you can find a million and one reasons to love her anyways and that will drive you to keep her close to you in any way you can. Just be careful, as Aries and Cancer’s tend to make better business partners than love partners for several very good reasons. One of the most important being that while she will love that you faun over her (anything to boost the ego), she will also demand a high amount of freedom at the same time. Aries want to have their cake and eat it to, by themselves. You might be lucky to get a nibble. If you beg. lol
While not being nominated for any of his work alone on The X-Files, William B. Davis and several other cast members were nominated in the category “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series” by the Screen Actors Guild Awards in 1997, 1998 and 1999 but did not win. The character was regularly voted “The Nastiest Villain” on television polls during the 90s. TV Guide listed Cigarette Smoking Man 20th in their “25 Greatest TV Villains” list. According to the portraying actor, the character had garnered protest from “pro-smokers”. Entertainment Weekly writer Jennifer Armstrong cited the character as an example of the old tradition of having only “bad guys” smoking on television.
Should arguments occur, Cancer men will engage in “makeup sex” however, there are limits. Example, don’t look to the bedroom for emotional healing if you cheat on a Cancer guy. He’s not going to go for it.
Online relationships and long distance relationships have unique challenges. One of these is that you get to see one side of someone very clearly: their personality. You don’t however get to see anything about other factors such as sexual attraction. My compatibility reports address this by scoring all factors alongside each other so you can see the whole picture, with any strong or weak areas highlighted. To explore this further please see my article on online relationships.
Slip on a sensual, flirty outfit before you approach him, like a dress that hugs your curves in all the right places. Floral perfumes in classic scents, like rose, can also create the perfect feminine ambiance around you.
Significant research has been conducted on sex with Cancer men based on narrative reports (Shaughnessy, 1990). When you think of intercourse with Cancer men, the proponderence of evidence suggests the guys relate on an emotional level.
Do Cancer men really hate to be teased, even insulted even if only playfully? I’m a Scorpio female who always comes across as a nice girl and oh so predictable, so I tried to opt for the playful insult to shift that perception a bit and build attraction, but something tells me it was more like a turn off for him. How then do I build attraction with him ?
This is an “iffy” relationship, at best. While Cancer will love the security and stability that the Capricorn woman will provide, the Crab will hate Capricorn’s seeming lack of emotion. The Goat will often think that the Crab isn’t ambitious enough for her. Practical Capricorn will also have a hard time with Cancer’s mood swings.
A Cancer man not only understands how you think and feel, but thinks and feels the same way. You could even say that he is fluent in female. He understands your emotions, respects your healing process, and takes your moods seriously.
