Cancer Men Traits
The Cancer element and planet helps to govern what make Cancer people the way they are. Cancers are a water sign which means they are emotional, empathetic, and sensitive to both their own delicate feelings and the needs and feelings of others. They are ruled by the Moon, which instills the ability to influence others in Cancerians, and makes Cancer’s moods changeable and this can cloud their thinking. This means they may react on their emotions, and sometimes they do so out of empathy for others. Loving a Cancer man might mean you have to listen to him overreact to a romance film and cry for an hour, but it can also mean he is the first one at your front door with chicken soup when you are feeling under the weather, or there with a bottle of wine and carryout dinner when you’ve had a bad day at work and don’t feel like cooking.
A woman or man with Cancer as their sun sign typically has a sense of humor many find appealing, and they may spend a lot of time going out of their way trying to convince you of their point of view. If you say they are arguing she may come back with “No, I’m just explaining why I am right!” and inform you she is the most intelligent zodiac woman! While Cancers can be very helpful, nurturing, and sympathetic to those they love, they can unfortunately be completely unaware they are upsetting you. It is not one of the Cancer men characteristics to deliberately set their loved one’s feelings aside, so just gently point out what you need him to do differently.
Known for their cozy homes where they welcome and spoil the people they care about, Cancers can be homebodies, and their lives, and homes are built to accommodate their family and friends. Chances are, their friends circle is small, and they prefer heart to heart conversation or serious intellectual discourse to small talk. Excellent at persuading people, they can also be downright manipulative when they want to be and are skilled at laying the mother of all guilt trips upon you when they feel wronged. They can be painfully shy but open up to the few people that are lucky enough for their Cancers to trust them, and they are typically quite frugal and will help you budget, save, and plan for retirement.
Cancers might be emotional water signs, but their planning and intellect rival that of air signs, and they are just as “bull headed” as any Taurus. This serves them well in life and helps make them patient when they need to be, and they will roll up their sleeves and work hard towards whatever short term and long term goals they have. Cancers understand how to work very hard but know at the end of the day, all their hard work is to ensure a good life for themselves and the people they love, so you will rarely catch them ignoring family and friends and overworking at their careers.
The Cancer zodiac physical appearance is often somebody with deep, soulful eyes who seems to look directly into your heart. They may or may not be stylish or especially beautiful, but they may shrink from the spotlight, so looking flashy or showy might not be their first priority. The Cancer rising physical appearance is that of approachability whether they be beckoning with a sincere smile or a plate of goodies. What to wear to attract a Cancer man can be less flashy clothes and simpler makeup. Bold, showy appearances are better saved for a Sagittarian or Aquarian, and your Cancer man won’t mind natural beauty over cosmetics.
A Mars in Cancer woman is passionate about feeling safe, secure, and can be jittery. A Mars in Cancer woman in bed needs to feel her sexual partner can be completely trusted by her before she allows him or her to engage in such a personal thing as sex with her. How to please a Cancer woman in bed in general is for her to feel she can completely trust you, but this is even more crucial to please a Mars in Cancer woman in bed. A Sagittarius woman and Cancer man in bed, similarly, need established trust, and a Saturn in Cancer woman can be even more sensitive, and takes things very personally. To have any sort of relationship with her, even a sexual one, you must put her feelings first and always pay close attention to them.

Cancer Men Are the Worst!
Some will dwell only on the positive traits Cancers have, and indeed, Cancers are no more perfect than any other zodiac sign, believe it or not. They can be needy, high maintenance, and throw tantrums. Cancer’s moods can change so fast, your head spins, and some of them can be downright manipulative at times. Their tenacity can border on obstinance, and they can annoy their loved ones by harping on how right they think they are.
