The Cancer Woman: Love, Sex, Friendship, Style
The Cancer Woman
The Cancer woman is ruled by the
Moon and her moods wax and wane like the lunar
cycle. Fluid like water, she is both peaceful and passionate. She is a tidal
force of perplexing emotion, and can be stubborn, compliant, furious, and docile,
all in the same hour. This sign is the least precise of the zodiac and you'd be
hard pressed to spot a Cancer woman amongst the crowd. She is strong willed and persistent, but can sometimes be reserved, drawing away
and into her own shell if disturbed or provoked.
A Cancer woman is sympathetic
and sensitive to others around her. This is due to her high intuition and deep
emotions. Famous Cancer women include Liv Tyler, Princess Diana, Michelle Kwan,
and Lindsay Lohan.
Cancer in Love
Slowly, slowly, as the Italians say. For any Cancer woman, romance is part and
parcel of love - the gifts, flowers, and love notes that form the traditional
woo-and-win process are essential to her. The Cancer woman is slow to fall in
love and refuses to be rushed. Once there, however, she is a devoted and
protective lover. She can be hurt unintentionally, so her partner must be
tactful and sensitive. It takes time for Cancerians to learn to trust another,
and the crab is shy and reserved when it comes to matters of the heart. When in
love, they are patient and will persevere in the face of any obstacle for the
cause of true love.
Cancer and Relationships
The crab has a good instinct for who suits them best in relationships. Her idea
of a perfect partner is someone who loves to snuggle on the couch together, watch
television, and pour wine for her. A Cancer woman loves being catered to but her
idea of relationships is also one of equality. She will happily look after her
partner as long as he reciprocates with the same treatment. Relationships with
Cancer women are usually steady and secure, but there may be the occasional
slide into crabbiness. Security and fidelity are the most important aspects of a
relationship to the crab.
Cancer and Friendships
Cancers like to mother everyone around them and are caring, thoughtful
friends. A Cancer friend is the one that makes sure everyone gets home safe
after a drunken night out, and who calls to make sure you're doing okay after
your bout of flu. There is something comforting about friendships with a Cancer
woman, and you know she will be there looking after you should you ever need
her. Your crabby friend's fragile feelings can sometimes be trampled on by a
careless, clumsy comment, so tactless, rude and inconsiderate people need not
Cancer and Sex
Sex is a slow, sensual dance with the Cancer woman. She needs to have an
emotional connection with her partner. She will trust you to lead and if you
unlock the right moves, she can tango with the best of them. Her hidden
flamboyance and responsiveness may be surprising, but remember that still waters
run deep in your Cancer lover. She loves seduction and sensual fantasies. She
enjoys being made love to and is eager to learn. Sex is always attuned with love
for her, and bedroom encounters with this water sign are usually pure liquid
Cancer and Fashion
The Cancer woman prefers traditional outfits with an emphasis on femininity and
comfort. A typical Cancer woman will choose flimsy organza over tight denim and
loose silk over PVC leggings. Don't be fooled by her apparently conservative
fashion choices. She likes the touch of watery satin on her skin and will often
wear a luxurious, matching set of lingerie beneath her conventional outerwear.
She does not follow the latest craze emanating from the catwalks. Instead, she
favors timeless labels and cuts. As every crab knows, trends are like tides,
and they don't last long. Her favorite accessories are charm necklaces and
The Cancer Woman: Fashion & Style
The Cancer woman is a child of the Moon, her moods changing as it waxes and
wanes, sometimes caught in a great tide of emotion, sometimes as aloof and icy
as a snow maiden. No one ever really knows what to expect from her, and that
goes for the way she dresses as well.
In her earth mother phase, she is all beads, blouses, and gypsy skirts. In her
nurturing business role, she is boardroom suits and sensible heels. In her
romantic phase, she is the Queen of Lace. She changes roles almost effortlessly,
completely unconscious of the effect she has on people. She is never forgotten,
like the Moon.
Not only her moods but her environment affects the way she looks. On the beach,
with hair blowing free, barefoot and wrapped in a sarong, she might be a native;
in the city, she blends in just as effortlessly, because she knows instinctively
what is required. But always just beneath the surface, there is a sense of not
quite wanting to conform. She will wear gold and diamonds on the beach, and
amazingly sexy underwear beneath that city suit.
She shops according to her mood too, heading off to the mall with energy and a
great determination to hunt out the bargains. She is a great bargain hunter, the
Cancer woman. If there is an exclusive label to be had at a knock down price,
she will find it - and it won't even be sale time. She sniffs out the best
bargains, and of all the signs, is the one most likely to dress like a model on
a shop girl's budget.
She loves classic clothes with a twist, the twist that labels her as a fey moon
maiden. A plain trench coat with a bright yellow lining, a slim bag that opens
out to reveal myriad pockets, plain black court shoes with golden heels - if it
has a slight quirk, but otherwise looks timeless, she is loving it.
Her makeup moods change with the cycles of the Moon as well. She might use every
artifice available on her dressing table to change her look completely, or just
go out bare faced. As a Moon child, the only cosmetic she really needs is sun
block to preserve her milky complexion. Her eyes are extraordinary anyway, her
lips look plump with just a slick of lip gloss. Her hair is her crowning glory
and she is likely to spend more on shampoo and conditioner than on foundation.
She believes in the old rule of one hundred strokes with a brush every night.
Sleep is her best beauty care. Diets work best for her if they include lots of
sea food, and swimming is the best exercise. Even when she piles on the pounds,
she moves lightly, especially in the water. The Cancer woman is a comfort eater,
and needs to find other ways to deal with her emotions, like long walks.
The Cancer woman is a natural mother, though that may not always mean she will
have children. She will be nurturing in whatever role she takes on, whether it
is running a home or a corporation. Others are attracted to her natural warmth,
but puzzled by her changing moods. The right lover can unlock the magic key to
an ocean of love. Her ability to give herself wholly in love is both her
greatest happiness and her greatest cross to bear. The Cancer woman finds it
very hard to let go of a love that has died, and lovers can find her emotions to
be too much to cope with. She needs a strong partner, one with the depth to see
that there is nothing to fear. Another water sign, Scorpio or Pisces, or her own
opposite sign of Capricorn, will understand.
Sexually, she can be distant, but the right lover will arouse intense passion.
Scorpio is very good at this, while Pisces arouses her more romantic passions.
Capricorn gives her security, which she craves, and a relaxed Cancer woman finds
real pleasure in sex.
Her home is the center of her life. It will be comfortable, welcoming, and
preferably by the sea. Young people will enjoy being around her, because she
always seems to remain young inside, even though she tends to age gracefully.
Often she is glad to actually leave behind the troubled years of her adolescence
and young womanhood, and finds peace in later years.
