Cancerians are thought of as mammas and papas of the zodiac and Cancerian women, all the more so for good reason. They are unpredictable creatures with a soft, chewy interior but a hard exterior, exactly like the crab, which symbolizes them. Cancerian women are one of their kind:
Guarded yet vulnerable, dependable yet extremely moody, adaptable yet hesitant towards change, difficult to understand yet an open book at the same time.
Your Cancerian woman is the one you wish to have as a friend, because she always listens and tries to understand without any judgements; as a life partner because she knows the rules of compromise and support inside out; as your wall to lean on because she readily forgets about her own troubles and carries your weight of problems for you. She not only remains in love but loves hard and knows how to be in love. Despite her calm and cool faГ§ade, there is a storm of emotions forever raging within her; but because of her habit to bottle things up, you’ll rarely notice.
Interesting with a lot of layers to her charismatic personality, the Cancerian woman does have some dominating traits you should know before getting involved with these brutally loyal and sensitive creatures.
1. They’re Guarded Yet Sensitive
Cancerian women are extremely guarded and reserved, much like the crab what with its hard exterior through which not much penetrates. But deep down, they’re really sensitive creatures who easily hurt. It’s not every day they let someone in their life. A Cancerian woman doesn’t give her heart’s key to just anyone, but those lucky enough to receive it see past their calm and tact exterior to their passionate interior.
Because of their reserved and guarded personality, Cancerian women are often considered careless but they care the most. They just don’t show it, always remaining a level of mystery about them beneath that course exterior
2. They’re Moody
The moodiest people to ever exist, Cancerians are symbolized by the moon. Just as the moon changes its phases, the Cancerian woman changes her mood. These mood swings often get the best of her but she’s able to get out of them just as fast as she got in them. It doesn’t matter what the task at hand is if your Cancer woman isn’t in the mood, she won’t do it.
3. They Make Ideal Friends/Partners
Cancerian women are the ones that not only listen to you cry your heart out but cry alongside you. Everyone craves a listening ear and someone to care for them. Because of their intuitiveness, they’re inherently nurturing. Their ability to see the best in you makes you appreciate yourself more. Fiercely loyal, protective and possessive for their loved ones, Cancerian women make the best of friends and lovers. Relationships are sacred to the Cancerian woman; hence she tries more than her best to fulfil them correctly. She knows that indeed, love is a doing word and it’s fearless on her breath.
4. They Crave Stability
Despite her hunger for adventures and taking risks, by the end of the day, the Cancerian woman wants nothing more than a sense of security and stability from her loved ones. She is sensitive with an utmost need of assurance that she’s loved. After all, it seems only fair when she puts her all for others.
5. Home is where the heart is
Cancerian women idealise the concept of home, mainly because they need a sense of stability and security. Being staunch introverts, they’d rather spend a night in watching a movie with you than go out shopping. Well, mostly anyway. Sometimes called ‘homebodies’, Cancerian women are your perfect match when it comes to being a foodie and having a knack for cooking. Indeed, for Cancerian women, home is where the heart is.
6. They Dislike Confrontations
Being super sensitive, some harsh words cut deeper in a Cancer woman’s heart than intended. They fear losing a loved one; they crave total stability and security so confrontation’s a nightmare for Cancerian woman, simply because it poses a threat to the safe home she builds around that person and because it creates a perfect platform for those harsh words to cut deeper into her heart.
However, when confrontations become inevitable, the Cancerian woman chooses to shut herself off completely, going back into her shell and blaming herself for opening up in the first place.
7. They’re Great Manipulators
Cancerian women are great manipulators, knowing just how to get what they want. This also lessens their need for confrontations.
8. They’re Stuck in the Past
When the past comes knocking on their shoulder, the Cancerian woman cannot help herself to just walk on, she has to look back. She lives in the past because she cherishes those moments so much, they ought to be relived in again amidst the emotional chaos in her soul.
9. They Survive
You might come to think based on their tender and sensitive side, these caring creatures are delicate, like a flower. Maybe they are, you never know, for they keep themselves protected from the world beneath their hard shells. They are not flowers, but weeds; they know how to survive. Expect your Cancerian woman to think outside the box, coming up with surprising ways to survive even when the whole world around them comes crumbling down.
10. They Can’t Let Go
Ever see how a crab latches on to something? It holds on with the hooks of its hands’ so tightly, it takes quite some time to let go. Similarly, the Cancerian woman is clingy sometimes a bit too much. She puts her best in everything, hence she knows she might not get something equally good again. So she holds on fiercely whether it’s ideas, people, objects or habits. Cancerian women are super clingy that way. In the same pretext, it’s hardest for her to move on from something in the past. She can’t seem to let go.
