10 Things You Need to Know About Cancerian Woman

Cancerians are thought of as mamas and papas of the zodiac and Cancerian women, all the more so for good reason.

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.

    1. Cancer, that means he’s the nurturing type. And you’re the creative half of the couple. You should just be honest and caring, that’s basically what it all boils down to regardless of your Zodiac 😌

  1. Fits me to a T. I don’t think that I’m manipulative but I do see how I may be at times but not in a malicious way

    1. Lisa, I think being ‘manipulative’ is inside all of us on some level. Some don’t admit it, some do.

  2. I am an Aries and my girlfriend is a cancer how do I get her out of her mood swings ? Three days ago she was just fine and all of sudden she just got cold.

  3. Yup that’s me- the cancer woman (water ) and married 25 rollercoaster years to an Aries (fire) you just have to roll with the punches so to speak. Being able to compromise is half the battle – look if I can survive an almost divorce over his cheating then all ya’ll can do it

  4. That was hard to read about myself. My birthday is June 22. It is spot on!!!!!! I resonate with the crab very much. I cherish so much n hold on. Manipulate in order not to hurt. The past isn’t something I can get away from. I always thought it’s strange how I can survive anything even if it’s haunting me.
    Stability is EVERYTHING. definitely homebody and a cook. Nurturer.
    Mysterious and reserved. I only show people
    What I want them to see. Can’t get in…. pretty much never. Cuz when I’m hurt it’s forever.
    I feel
    Connected to the moon and
    Witchy which goes against my family religion. And I don’t care.

    1. I’m the 27th and your so right was hard reading about yourself…..only thing different about me is I don’t hide my sensitivity turns to anger(my Wiccan side says it’s due to being the only cancer in my family) my dad sister neice and husband all Capricorn other sis aries and mom saggataious – out of all aunt’s uncle’s coausins I’m literally the only summer baby ….. Why can’t I control my emotions?

  5. Im a pisces male and married to a georgeous Cancer woman. She ran away once from me while pregnant and also with my lil baby girl. Keep them away from Canada for almost 2 yrs. Back now for 1.5 yrs and ran away again now with my two young children and this time she is claiming abuse falsely and involving CAS and police. Why oh why is this woman so desparate to put me in jail to escape back to Mongolia and raise my children there and never return?? I am so inlove with her but she hurts me over and over until I resort to acting also like her to show her, her own hurtful self. She never sees herself thou… not ever relenting. Im so tired of her real abuse. Seems truly Narcisstic. Please help save our Marriage of only 5.5 yrs.

  6. I am a Cancer….July 11th. This IS me!!!
    This is great work!! Thank you for your time ❤

  7. I’m a long time thoughtful, extremely enthusiastic emotional cance . Sometimes I love the way I am and a time or two I do not, especially that I’m so moody I can’t even think when I am emotional . Although I do get my best thoughts and ideas if you make me made at you when I’m moody just watch out your butt is on my forget you list, try me! However, my loyalty is my forever love that I give to you but it could take forever for you to get to have all of me inside and out. I love the creative, intuitive and empowering emotional intelligence about myself, I love the mystery so that no one knows how I’ll strike or how to hurt me either The mystery is mostly about how to keep you attached and attracted to me and also how to navigate and manipulate you to love me for it moreover than anything else the Cancer kind also love attention, will give attention and attitude if necessary I can usually sense if you’re any good or not before you even speak, you’re just spinning your wheels and wasting both our time trying to fool me or be something you’re not lo . I’m on to ya!
    Question though I’m married to a Taurus Male why isn’t he as affectionate as I am why is he always in a rush? Are cancer and Taurus compatible? He hurts my feelings alot is that me or him? Why will a Taurus lie? How can Taurus and cancer get along?
