Take the example of our Virgo friend Nancy, a wealthy executive and world traveler. On her third date, she invited her Cancer beau Edward to her tasteful, art-filled New York City apartment. Rather than marvel at her rare book collection and African pottery, Edward noticed two things: that Nancy’s living room air conditioner didn’t work, and she didn’t have an anti-slip pad under her tiny kitchen rug.
I totally enjoyed reading your message about Cancer men. The cancer man I’m dating seems ‘fits that exact mould.’ As a Leo woman I found myself wanting more and more of him, that is his friendship, his warmth. I don’t know where this is going to end up but I’m all in. Thanks for sharing all about Cancer men.
He is tender, sweet and doesn’t talk too much. Although his sensitivity can stay hidden for most of the time, he will show it when it matters and this guaranties relationships that last, if he doesn’t underestimate himself and choose wrong partners. He is genuinely interested in his partner’s life, rarely says things just to get someone to bed, and is usually a safe choice to start a peaceful family with. On the other hand, he can be needy and insecure, and some more energized signs could see him as weak and boring.
Oftentimes with a Cancerian man, you’ll have to make the first move because they have such a fear of rejection. Show him that you care about the same things he does, such as home, family, beauty, and romance. Don’t come on too strong, but be somewhat aggressive in your pursuit. He needs to know that you’re really interested in him before he responds!
The good, bad, and ugly on the Scorpio man Are you attracted to a Scorpio man? Trying to understand how Scorpio men operate in love and relationships? Hoping to gain better insight into this water […]
In the season 11 finale “My Struggle IV”, the Smoking Man and Reyes follow Mulder, Scully and Skinner to an abandoned factory where they are chasing down William. Skinner points a gun at them and shoots Reyes dead, and the Smoking Man runs Skinner over in his car. The Smoking Man confronts “Mulder” (who is actually William in disguise) by a waterfront, and during the standoff shoots him in the head and causes him to fall into the water. The real Mulder appears and shoots the Smoking Man, who realizes that he has killed William, and he falls off the edge and into the water, with his body then carried away by the currents.
When it comes to love, dealing with a Cancer man is tricky. The Crab will often retreat into that hard shell of his any time he feels threatened. And once that happens, it’s difficult to coax him back out into the open. You’ll need some professional help with this one!
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?
Ask him to help you organize your space. If you do have a cluttered area, tell him about it before he finds out on his own by asking him to help you organize it. The appeal of this petition is three-fold: you’ll make him feel needed, you’ll appeal to his natural love of organization, and you’ll demonstrate a willingness to become less messy and more organized yourself.
Hi, Virgo girl here, and I really like everything it says about Cancer, and I even had a Cancer boyfriend when I was a young teen (15) and I ended things with him because I was young still and unable to stay in a long-term relationship (I’m 47 now) but the qualities are pretty on point about what they are like in a relationship as long as they remain interested. I’ve seen some Cancer men and women in relationships and if someone else piques their interest, nothing holds them back, and the fact that they are involved with someone else doesn’t seem to matter much. They get lifted off the ground very easily like a “follow your nose” kind of thing. Its a scary thought that they could be here today and gone tomorrow and you are left with your heart in your hand as nothing is worse than healing a broken heart. And yes, its a part of life, but one I feel they seem to accept quite easily. It seems a bit cold to me. None of them ever did it to me but I’ve seen their tendency with this.
Emphasize your love of family. You should talk about the love you have for your current family as well as any dreams you have about marrying and starting a family of your own. Cancer men generally dream of having children someday, so it’ll help your case dramatically if your dreams are in line with his.
Taurus: Because Taurus is an earth sign, the goat helps to keep the crab centered. And because Taurus is also a homebody, the two complement one another. Taurus has the strange ability to keep Cancer in its place when emotions run high. Additionally, the centered energy of Taurus translates into Cancer calmness.
The same also for Cancer women but at least, Cancer women are incredible sexy.. They look at you like a catwoman and you keep falling, falling and falling in love with her.. They are so much indecisive so they need a man who can be decisive, but they have those eyes.. So dreamy and magical!! As a Scorpio man, we need a dream because we make it reality..
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.
If he did not have a good relationship with his family growing up, chances are, it was not by his choice. A Cancer man who did not receive the love of family from his actual family will probably view his circle of friends as his family, instead. In this case, your best bet is to get on good terms with his friends. Focus on his female friends, though, since getting too cozy with his male buddies might cause him to distrust your affection for him.
At the same time, the Smoking Man was an aspiring writer of espionage (and later, science-fiction) novels starring a fictional version of himself, Jack Colquitt, and based on his own secret activities, but all his drafts were rejected or altered by publishers who found them unrealistic and poorly written. This left him no choice but to continue working for the United States government. By 1991, the Smoking Man’s power was pretty much absolute. He was in direct talks with Saddam Hussein and involved in one way or another on the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas controversy, moving the Rodney King trial to Simi Valley, keeping the US government from interfering in the independence of Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Academy Awards nominations, keeping the Buffalo Bills from ever winning the Super Bowl, drugging the Soviet goalkeeper Vladislav Tretiak before the Miracle on Ice, and executing extraterrestrials that survived landing on American soil.
He wants to have his cake and eat it, too. If that means baking it himself, hand him an apron and a Mixmaster. The Cancer man’s ideal match is a woman who can make him laugh and think, who’s outwardly simple with layers of depth, and—most important—who’s always by his side when he needs her. He wants a willing companion who also has her own life, but not so much that it competes with his. A co-pilot won’t work, but a sexy, solid first mate will do just fine.
Try not to contradict him. Everyone is wrong sometimes, and the Cancer man is no exception. That said, since Cancers are so emotionally reactive, they tend to lash out when directly contradicted or corrected in a harsh manner.
The only exception might be products related to home. Because of their homebody persona, they like to live in safe, restorative and comfortable environments. Spending money on furniture and appliances, even if they cost a ton, are just fine by this sign.
Hello, I am a Pisces and I am in love with a cancer man that 10-month-old baby by a Leo women. He seems to not be able to let me go I don’t know if it’s love or not but he tells me I will always be his. I am looking for a true relationship with no strings attached. I hear or heard that Pisces and cancers suppose to be compatible but we never connected on that level just physical. Well I ever get him out of my system or well he ever let me go, by the way, I keep pushing him away I’m not good at sharing. He also speaks everytime he see’s me even when he is with her.
Hello Hopelessly Confused! Thank you for your comment, and I’m sorry it’s taken so long for me to get a reply to ya. Finally got a newerish computer. So, now that I’m back, just in case you’re still hoping for some of my thoughts, or if someone else comes a long in search of the same info, here’s what I have for you, from both my experience and my cancer man’s thoughts.

When first cast for the role, portraying actor William B. Davis thought a show about the paranormal would not last for long. Before joining The X-Files cast, Davis had not smoked a cigarette in twenty years. For the first two episodes he appeared in, he smoked “real” cigarettes, but later changed to herbal cigarettes, giving the reason that smoking was dangerous for his health. In at least one early script draft from the “Pilot”, a Special Agent named Lake Drazen is present at the meeting near the start of the episode, having chosen Scully for an assignment to evaluate the validity of Mulder’s work on the X-Files. The scene was eventually deleted and replaced, and several crew members have hinted that Agent Drazen became the Smoking Man.
If you are looking to learn more about Cancer men, there are several resources available online. One book that I highly recommend is: Cancer Sun Sign Series. What’s nice about this read is the straight-forward, easy to understand format the author uses.
In other words, don’t invite him into your personal space if your desk is covered in papers or if your apartment is covered in dirty laundry. You do not need to have everything labeled and filed away into neat little packages, but some basic cleanliness and a lack of clutter will go a long way.
Cancer men are a pleasure to shop for because they genuinely love receiving gifts and romantic displays of affection – especially if you give them something that has special meaning for you. They adore old things and unusual treasures, especially if they know for certain that no one else has what they have. Ruled by the moon, Cancer men are generally more in touch with their feminine nature and inner anima than most guys – so you can have fun finding them cute clothes and accessories with which to adorn themselves. They usually enjoy receiving jewelry, especially handcrafted silver rings, cuffs, and pendants. These men will often wear scents that seem more flowery or sweet than most guys feel comfortable sporting – so lavender, verbena and all gourmand scents like chocolate or spice will usually go over well here.
The same episode reveals that by the early 1960s he was a US Army captain involved in black ops and intelligence, and that he served alongside Fox Mulder’s father, Bill. The Smoking Man was already involved in the arming of anti-Castro rebels in Cuba and the assassinations of Patrice Lumumba and Rafael Trujillo before he was enlisted by a secret cabal to assassinate President John Fitzgerald Kennedy in Dallas. The assassination was motivated by Kennedy’s mishandling of the Bay of Pigs Invasion and the subsequent Cuban Missile Crisis. As part of the mission, the Smoking Man told the designated patsy, Lee Harvey Oswald, to bring the curtain rods as a way to frame him for the murder. Incidentally, it was Oswald himself who introduced the Smoking Man to cigarettes. By 1968, the Smoking Man had progressed enough in the hierarchy to push himself for the assassination of Martin Luther King, concerned that King was “talking like a Maoist” and a threat to the American war effort in Vietnam. He did the deed himself because he had “too much respect for the man,” and chose to frame a white racist because of his own sympathy for the Civil Rights Movement.
Listen. Cancer men are usually attracted to women who will share their feelings, but you’ll be even more attractive if you demonstrate a willingness to really listen to everything he says. He needs to open up at his own pace and may do so slowly, but if you want to become an attractive person in his eyes, you’ll need to be a trustworthy presence every step of the way.
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.
Of course, you should always mind your own needs when pursuing a potential relationship, even when doing so can chase away the guy you’ve set your sights on. If his possessiveness becomes dangerous or otherwise unnerving, walk away and don’t look back. Even if his possessiveness seems innocent and harmless, though, you should still take a step back if it makes you feel uncomfortable or unhappy.
This usually is not a good match. The Libra woman is often a “party girl,” while Cancer would much rather spend time at home. The Crab is a penny-pincher, too, while the Scales lady often has extravagant tastes. Libra loves positive energy, so she would have a real problem when the Crab was being, well, Crabby.
This depends on far more than just your sun signs. The complete picture of your personality and his is determined by numerous planet placements at the time of birth. To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results. This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information – everything from how they view you and how to turn them on to the best way to avoid arguments.
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.
2. Is it possible that you’re being very clingy or needy? Some signs will find this ultra attractive and endearing, sometimes even a cancer man with the right moon. Though if your cancer man is really fiery or earthy, he’s likely to scuttle away the minute you show any potential for becoming a permanent invader taking over his limited shell space, even if he seriously likes you. Hell, even if you’ve been perfectly sensible in your communications, needs, or pda with him, he could still do that. It just depends on what level of commitment and expectations he’s grown to prefer or at least put up with.
And this is why it’s so important to understand your man’s sign. For some women, pretending to need a guy when you don’t simply isn’t worth the compromise. It feels like dumbing yourself down or, as our wise Aquarius friend Neda puts it, “dimming your lights so he can shine.” You’ll always feel a little bit…suburban with a Cancer man.
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.
The differences in Cancer and the Leo woman often work in their favor. The Crab loves showering his mate with praise and attention, and the Lion gobbles these up hungrily. The Cancerian man has no problem allowing his leonine partner all the time in the proverbial spotlight.
One of the staunchest allies you can have in finding love is a gifted psychic. A psychic can provide you with all sorts of knowledge about the Cancer man that you might never discover on your own. She can read both of your charts and offer an amazing array of tips and advice. This knowledge far surpasses anything you might find in a hundred books, because it’s specifically tailored to you and your Cancerian love interest. It’s highly customized and takes factors other than just your birth dates into account.
Kim Manners, a director of several X-Files episodes, said that the Smoking Man was the show’s version of Darth Vader. Some X-Files fans have categorized the Smoking Man as evil, making him out to be the villain. Series creator Chris Carter once called him “the devil”, producing a mixed reaction among fans. Some fans, along with the portraying actor, see him as a hero, as he is forced to make choices others are not.
This is a question which is very hard to give a general answer on, as no two Cancer men are totally identical. The key is understanding him and what he finds most attractive in a partner. Astrology can provide a wealth of information to enable this, however natal charts need to be prepared and studied to do so. Please see the article on seduction and astrology for more information on this.
Although he utters only four audible words in the entire first season of the show, the Smoking Man eventually develops into the series’ primary antagonist. In his early appearances he is seen in the offices of Section Chief Scott Blevins and Assistant Director Walter Skinner, Mulder and his partner Dana Scully’s supervisors. An influential man working for the powers that be, he is a key member in a government-conspiracy unit known only as the Syndicate, who are hiding the truth of alien existence and their plan to colonize Earth. His power and influence remained strong, even after most of the Syndicate was destroyed.
Cancer is an unpredictable sign, with a little of everything at different times. This can make them far more exciting and unpredictable lovers than the standard nurturing image would portray. If you enjoy nurturing your partner it’s a win:win. If you’re the type who often neglects a partner it’s a lose:lose.
Nothing fulfills a Cancer man more than a happy family, with himself at the helm. He rules the zodiac’s fourth house of home and family. Lifelong security is his mission. On a horoscope wheel, the fourth house is located at the very bottom, representing the foundation of the chart. Indeed, the Cancer man builds his love life from the ground up, planting deep roots and nurturing them into a mighty, multi-generational family tree.
Prepare yourself for a long relationship. If you’re hoping to attract a Cancer man for a one-night stand, you should probably set your sights elsewhere. His aversion to wild, quick-paced actions and his dedication to family make the Cancer guy a poor candidate for a fling. If you want to attract him in the hopes of starting a long-term relationship, though, you’ll probably have much greater success.
This is a man with the Sun in a sign of the heart, love from our mother, our family and our inner feeling of gratitude. Because of this, he may seem weak, or something like a forced opposite of weak, and it is important to realize how hard it can be to be a man with an accented sensitive side. Although civilization is on its way to accept all sorts of human natures, especially the emotional one, it always seems judged by potential partners or wildly misread in general. Cancer always has a family issue to resolve and accept, positive or negative, and it is always best to have a peek into his relationship with his mother in order to understand him better. When he is well raised with a stable sense of security, this is a man anyone who is after a quiet family life would want.
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.
Davis was included in Entertainment Weekly’s list of the 50 Biggest Emmy Snubs, the list’s author saying that the presence of the “Cigarette Smoking Man” was as important as “black oil, alien implants, and Scully’s skepticism”. The Malaysian newspaper the New Straits Times called the Smoking Man one of the most “intriguing” characters of the show. However, Christianity Today said that the mystery behind the Smoking Man had evaporated by the late season episodes. Likewise, Ken Tucker from Entertainment Weekly felt that “the monotonous evil of Cancer Man” had “become actively annoying” in later seasons of the show, being that his lurking presence did not seem as mysterious anymore. Salon reviewer Jeff Stark felt the show was at its best when you “didn’t exactly know the motivations of the Smoking Man”.
Avoid spontaneity. The occasional romantic surprise is fine, but as a general rule, avoid making any sudden wild suggestions or demanding something without any warning. Cancer guys like to keep all aspects of their life organized. This includes both physical space and intangible time.
Cancers can easily get into a vicious cycle of working their butts off for long shifts, and then coming home to collapse and recover before doing it all over again, ad nauseam. When they vacation, they prefer to do so for longer than most people (at least a month at a time) so that they can fully immerse in relaxation. Six months of grueling work with no time for fun is doable for them, as long as they have a dangling carrot luring them toward the promise of lazy days on the beach. This extremism can result in burnout and neglect of their own needs, and friendships outside of their partner and children frequently fall by the wayside when a Cancer man is in work-mode.
Cancer men can be mama’s boys, so be prepared to meet his (and hope that you pass muster!). And, know that he’s the ideal candidate to bring home to meet your parents: His manners will be impeccable at dinner, and he’ll have already charmed your mom and dad into thinking he’s the best guy you’ve ever dated by the time the appetizers arrive.
Cigarette Smoking Man (abbreviated CSM or C-Man; sometimes referred to as Cancer Man or the Smoking Man) is a fictional character and one of the primary antagonists of the Fox science fiction-supernatural television series The X-Files. He serves as the arch-nemesis of FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder. In the show’s sixth season, his name is said to be C.G.B. Spender, but Dana Scully suggests this is one of “hundreds of aliases”; the show’s characters and fans continue to refer to him by variations of “the Smoking Man” because he is almost always seen chain-smoking Morley cigarettes. In the eleventh season, he reveals his full name to be Carl Gerhard Busch.
