If you want to know more, discover how are Cancerians and what makes them so special in the following OneHowTo article.
General characteristics of Cancer
Cancer is a water sign that is ruled by the Moon. This could explain their character and behaviour which is somewhat discordant and with rapid mood changes. They go from feeling melancholy and sad to elated and excited in no time. Perhaps that is why they are defined as enigmatic and mysterious people. They exert a special power of attraction on others who are curious to discover their true self. They are determined but simultaneously very shy and reserved, confident, whimsical, stubborn, tenacious and highly intuitive. However, those who know them intimately can identify someone completely different; in them they find someone sweet and extremely sensitive with the people they love.
Furthermore, Cancerians love receiving flattery from others, they are ambitious but get easily offended and often feel targeted and attacked without reason.
They are also very family oriented people. Like a crab in its shell, a cancer's home is a retreat for them to become isolated and withdrawn. They love travelling, art, literature, music, everything related to the drama and action, and have excellent literary talent and are also very good in writing.
How are Cancerians at work
At work, Cancers are characterized as successful, ambitious and persistent. They propose new goals and do not give up until reaching them. Their great confidence drives them to dedicate their life to a profession of a vocational nature. They love studying and understanding and analysing the opinions of others, this enabling them to have much success as writers, journalists or politicians. They also feel comfortable working in the public sector and transferring knowledge and teaching others. Their innate concern for stability leads them to fear the risk of new and very different experiences, but at the same time this helps them in financial matters. They are savers and manage their money well, preferring to invest and see returns increasing day by day than to to splurge and take on unnecessary expenses.
How are Cancerians in love and relationships
Understanding a Cancerian in love can sometimes prove to be a bit tricky. A Cancerian may go from being the most sweet and tender to be the most annoying and quiet of the lot. What is worst of all is that you will have no idea why. However, if you have been or are lucky enough to seduce a Cancerian you will find a good lover who, when in love, is 100% committed and makes the other person feel special, unique, desired, etc. A downside to this is that they may also be quite demanding and possessive. They need their partners to give them security, understanding and protection.
In relationships Cancer values loyalty and fidelity above all else. They are compassionate, good listeners, give good advice and are empathic.
