Alone time or some downtime is where Cancer can harness an appreciation for life. This is partly because the Cancer sign is water element driven.
As the ebbs and flows of water, there’s a point where the water gets into a state of calm, after much activity. Fortunately, after this settling down of the everyday dust of life, this is a good time for Cancer to produce influential ideas.
#2 A Cancer LONGS for Expression
Especially if they’re introverted, Cancer’s desire for some expression, particularly outer expression, can come off as a surprise.
This is because a Cancer sees outer expression as a form of release. And particularly, it’s a release from tension—both physical, mental, and emotional.
So, don’t be shocked that a Cancer might ecstatically party, especially if they like the gathering!
#3 Close-Knit Groups Are A Necessity For Cancer
Not friendly acquaintances mind you, but a close group of friends that a Cancer can rely on.
The Cancer sign can particularly have (seemingly out of nowhere!) a psychological need for support. These usually happen when a Cancer gets nervous or irritable due to life’s many stressors.
If you have Cancer as a friend, don’t shun them away! It’s likely that they want to “reach out” more than they know it.
#4 A Cancer Wants To Stick Out Of The Group
Whether it’s in the bedroom or the kitchen, a Cancer won’t intuitively miss the chance to put their special “spin” on things.
They have and want their environment to have a “particular” arrangement, often contrary to what is conventional. They want to stick out, and they can’t help it!
#5 A Cancer DOESN’T Speak In Tongues
Okay, a Cancer sign DOES speak in tongues, of course.
BUT, this sign holds a special place in their hearts for “non-verbal” forms of expression.
This is especially the case if those come in the form of private gatherings and among close friends.
For a Cancer, a “picture” is indeed “worth a thousand words”.
#6 A Cancer Has Affection For The Silliest Things
If they’re particularly attuned to their surroundings, Cancer has some of the affection-based modes you won’t find anywhere else.
Whether it’s about the delights of food on the table, a slumber party they just had, or about intimate sessions among bedfellows, a Cancer will privately look for these things to both satisfy and regulate their life.
#7 A Cancer Doesn’t Make Work Easy For Partners
Indeed. Unless, of course, you’re their best friend or confidant. Cancer will often put some difficulties on people with whom they don’t have a familiar bond. Or, at the very least, people who have no mutual understanding about a Cancer’s personality, values, and quirks. And while it’s difficult to earn a Cancer’s trust, that trust is long-term.
#8 To A Cancer, Emotional Bonds Trump Logical Decisions
Though the reason is a nice mode we use to critically think about things, a Cancer will likely let it pass by the ear or throw it out the window.
To a Cancer, cold-hard reason can’t compare to intuitive feelings and that strong need to empathize with another person and the emotions they have. It’s all about that trust.
#9 A Cancer Kind Of EXPECTS You To Get Them
Yup. Cancer has goals and wants to achieve like everybody else, especially if they’re addicted to something.
But, don’t expect them to tell you these outright.
More often than not, a Cancer will WANT your sympathy, but they want you to figure that out.
And, they want you to figure out the litany of sensitivities and needs and moods that go along with them.
#10 A Cancer Is Mostly Passive, And They’re Fine With That
For good or for ill, the Cancer sign is a mostly passive creature. As a Crab, they will usually take things in stride or are probably “slow” for some people.
But, like the hermit crab that wants to get out, its shell, the Cancer sign, wants to get life improvement.
They like to avoid the pain that comes with the package if they can help it.
#11 It Takes Some Time For Cancer To Settle Down
The Cancer sign is usually taken as the rebellious type and one that doesn’t want to settle things into a steady or fixed lifestyle.
For some with the Cancer sign, it can take them well into mid-life to get the message. Psychologically, Cancer still has a lot of pent-up energy to burn.
#12 A Cancer Likes To Zone Out (A Lot)
There’s little doubt about it. To a Cancer sign, dreams are almost everything.
They power the deep-seated imagination that intuitively comes naturally to Cancer. Ever so close to the affinity of the Moon, which is their ruler, a Cancer wants to diffuse the imagination unto the tides of an ocean of probabilities.
The Cancer sign is a dreamer extraordinaire.
