The Best and Worst of Cancer (or Why Are Cancerians So Lovable?)
What makes Cancer sign types (usually born between June 21-July 22) so lovable? And on the other hand, why is it that so many Cancerians languish in the singles pool while their more glamorous Leo and Gemini friends seem to get all the dates? Cancer offers substance, not style, and this is exactly the charm of this Water sign. But how do you get others to appreciate it?
Cancer, when you’re at your best. . .
. . . you are nothing if not devoted to those you care about. You would rather pour a lot of loving attention into a few special people than spread yourself out thinly over a large group. Networking is not for you and this is because you come at things heart-first. You may not be flashy upon first glance, but once you’ve gotten into somebody’s heart, you’ll quickly gain a lock on their affections. Your emotional intelligence gives you an edge in all kinds of social situations, and your intuition keeps you out of trouble.
. . . and at your worst. . .
Your ability to care and to feel are your finest strengths and your attraction to those who are weak, small or in need is a reflection of this. Is it any wonder that you wake up some days to find that your home is overrun with stray animals, your life with stray people and your attention with gone-astray family members? Sometimes a line simply must be drawn. Your time is valuable because when you give, you give completely. Is it also any wonder that you get attached, sometimes too attached, to those you care for?
Handling your Cancer nature
Make your home into the perfect nest for you to enjoy and to share with a special someone you can build a family with. Your home is absolutely your castle and when it’s as you like it, you are sustained, supported and invigorated. When it’s not, you’re drained, plain and simple. Also, when your relationships don’t give back to you, you absolutely must pull back from them and begin taking care of yourself. Forget about blaming others for not reciprocating—frankly, your standard of care is higher than theirs. Oh, and please draw a line with those crazy family members you’re always trying to save. It’s a wasted effort that drains the friendships you have with those who are more deserving.
Clueing others in about you
Let them know you’re shy. Still waters run deep and yours are among the deepest. Be choosy in all your friendships. Really bond with your friends and let them know how much you treasure these few special people you’ve carefully chosen to let into your life and heart. And when you go crazy over the next relationship in your life, don’t ditch your friends for your “new hottie”—you’ll need those friends someday, whether to cry with or laugh with, as soon as you get past the honeymoon. Be sure to cultivate your connections with the Scorpios and Pisceans in your life: they get you like nobody else and instead of being bothered by your sensitivity, they understand and value it.
