Crabs carry their shell on their back so they can hide in it and be safe. Cancer women can be shy and need reassurance. What they are most afraid of is rejection. What they have to offer is a motherly, caring, comforting aura that can personify the word woman.
Cancer women will expect you to marry them after the first date. If she falls in love with you, she’ll want to know right away when to plan the wedding. Cancer females are domestic goddesses who bond easily and separate with great difficulty. No one will keep the hearth burning better, but she may not want to go adventuring or partner with you outside the home. Give her babies or let her treat you like one. It’s all the same to her. Cooking is her way of nurturing, so be prepared to appreciate a Cancer woman’s culinary skill and to prove the old adage, a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.
Like the crab, Cancer women can creep up on their work, approaching it from the left field. To the outside world, it may seem that they are at times fooling around, procrastinating, or teasing the object of their attention, when in fact they’re preparing to grab hold of their prey with a tenacity that will make your head spin. Cancer women as bosses are, well, bossy. And the employees are, well, crabby. But despite the emotional baggage they’ll bring with them to any position, you’ll find them capable of great achievements and very reliable.
Cancer women are moon goddesses. They are naturally in touch with the rhythms of nature and the returning cycles of the seasons, gestation, fertility. There is something to be said for worldly achievements and social status, but Cancer women are here to remind us of the sanctity of family and the home. A woman was there at your birth and will probably be at your side when you die. The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.
A clingy, whiny, bottomless pit of insecurity can result when a female Cancer’s precious needs are not met. An unhealthy dependence on food, sleep, oral gratification, drinking, sex, or other physical comforts are the downside of Cancerian energy run amok. Sometimes it is necessary to remind your Cancer woman that there is a world outside the home and values outside of “family values” which are honorable and just. She may also forget the world can be a fun place with lots of big adventures for those brave enough to leave the house (or should I say the womb?).
