Profile of a Cancer
Cancers have the inner drive and determination to get anything done and they have a self sufficiency where they don’t have to rely on anyone to do it. Conversely, when it comes to support and encouragement, they need people in their lives that they can lean on. This is how a Cancer can be independent and not, at the same time. They crave attention from people and are at their happiest when they are surrounded by their close friends and family, who mean everything to them.
Due to this love of close relationships, Cancer’s are incredibly loyal to those who appreciate and support them. They are known as nurturers and will protect their friends and family by any means possible. They have a unique ability to make others feel really good about themselves, and people know that they can depend on them. Cancer’s make excellent listeners but at the same time it’s rare that they reveal their own deep feelings.
There is nothing a Cancer cannot do once they get over their initial shyness and insecurity. They have incredible perseverance and rigid moral code that allows them to stand up for what they believe in. They are great business people due to their innate intuition, knowing the right path to go down and predicting future trends. Money security is very important to Cancer and you feel they need to have vast amounts stored away for safety. Luckily, due to their work ethic, they often achieve it.
The best word to describe a cancer, is Complex. They are temperamental, unpredictable and are in constant need of reassurance – they need to be needed! They can be irritable and cranky for no apparent reason and are easily offended. So much so that if they are hurt, they can wallow in self-pity for a very long time.
Cancers are afraid of placing their trust in the wrong people and this causes them to lock up emotionally. This isn’t helped by the fact that they are very sensitive and easily hurt, often justifying their internal dialogue to remain closed off to the world. Once a Cancer realises that they can trust someone and takes a hold of their insecurities, there is nothing they can’t achieve. People love to be around them, ventures turn into success’ and relationships will often be very harmonious indeed.
