The Cancer Male

A Cancer Male thrives on stability; however stability to him is not necessarily financial security or mental security. To this watery male it’s all about feeling emotional stability, he’s ruled by emotion and matters of the heart, and not by his intellect. Home family and other people’s feelings are important; he is also intuitive and instinctive and will often know what is going on with you, even before you know. In the main he is romantic and usually has a great sense of humour.  Ruled by the Moon and depicted by the Crab means that he can be secretly moody and seldom direct and will sidestep more than he will address directly.


The Cancer Female

The Cancer Female is the home bird of the Zodiac, she is the nester, mother, nurturer. It’s not that females of the other signs are not any of these, it’s just her instincts are more finely tuned towards the home and family. Like her male counterpart, ruled by the Moon, she operates on her emotions. However while depicted by the Crab she will protect her brood and with the directness and viciousness of a warrioress.  She will seldom make the first move and her shy demeanour often suggests wrongly that she maybe weak in character. Once she is committed to you, she will remain yours forever and ever.
