Cancer Lovers – “The Crab”

Your love making style fluctuates between aggressive and sensual.

Cancer lovers are emotional creatures and love to celebrate the strength of their feelings when making love.

You have a very sensual nature, and often only feel satisfied when with a partner you deeply care about.

Before you’re able to relax and let down your guard, you need to feel safe and comfortable with your lover and know that they won’t exploit your vulnerability or hurt you.

Sensitive and emotional, you want lots of romance and affection.

Cancer lovers enjoy hugging, kissing, and touching. Cancer lovers love to hear the words, ’I love you,’ as often as possible.

You enjoy creature comforts and security; adventurous and spontaneous seduction is not your style.

A real home-body, you prefer to make love in your own bed. All in all, you most prefer a monogamous relationship with someone you love.


The Cancer man is super sensual and you love playing the attentive courtier.

You bring candy, flowers and champagne, and love to take your partner to nice places. As a romantic daydreamer, you fall in love easily and deeply.

It’s in your nature to spoil your lover outrageously.

You’re an affectionate creature who demands total loyalty and fidelity. You’re happiest with a woman who shares your dreams. You take your role as strong, masculine protector seriously and gift your partner with your full, constant devotion.

Between the sheets, you love spontaneity. You’re intensely imaginative and expressive, with an instinctual understanding of matters of the heart.

You’ll go to almost any lengths to please the object of your desire.


The Cancer woman may appear as shy and sweet, but deep down you’re a superbly sensual woman, burning with smouldering fire.

Trust is of extreme importance to you and you’re vulnerable to being hurt. You don’t forget or forgive a betrayal in love easily.

If offered love and security, you will only have eyes for your lover.

You’re a subtle flirt and love old-fashioned romance. You’re quite sentimental and devoted to you mate and family.

Men naturally feel protective towards you.


’There are secret emotional depths to her, and like the story of Sleeping Beauty and her Prince it takes love to awaken her eroticism.’ ~

Joanna Martine Woolfolk.

In intimacy, you tend to be feminine, affectionate and sweetly seductive – the type of woman that a man never wants to leave!

Turn-ons in Cancer Relationships:

Your top turn-ons are security and sympathy.

According to Starsky and Cox, authors of Sextrology, Cancer Lovers are also characterized by the following turn-ons:

• tall, strong women and men
• kissing, cuddling, spooning
• hotel rooms
• showers, bathing
• blindfolds
• rubber, latex
• swinging and one-night stands
• piercings
• nudism


Pursue ease, comfort and fulfillment when it comes to all things pleasurable. Sometimes you’ve just got to let go and embrace hedonism!


Tradition sees the entire universe as consisting of the elements fire, air, water and earth.

When we apply this system to personalities, the elements represent certain basic traits and give a certain “temperament”.

This varies according to the emphasis of the elements in the horoscope. Any placement of planets or personal points in a sign constitutes an emphasis.

The four elements can be regarded as four basic principles of life.

These can be applied to all sorts of things through the principles of similarity and analogy.

C.G. Jung has opened the door to a modern understanding of these categories by developing a system of types, in which the elements correspond to four basic functions of the psyche.

The emphasis or non-emphasis of the elements in the individual horoscope reveals fundamental aspects of the personality.

People with a strong emphasis of the fire element are spontaneous and impulsive, they apply their energies wholeheartedly. Their emotional response is quick and they have a lively imagination.

Fire signs: Aries, Leo and Sagittarius

Airy people are quick and animated. They apply their energies in very diverse ways. They tend to intellectualize their feelings and expectations.

Air signs: Libra, Aquarius, Gemini

People with a strongly emphasized water element are feeling types and are very sensitive. Their imaginative and emotional lives are deep and rich.

Water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Earthy people react quietly and slowly. They apply themselves with endurance. Emotionally they are deeply rooted and slow to change.

Earth signs: Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo


Cancer and Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)

Cancer love matches with Air signs are never easy.

Part of the problem is that Air signs often perceive themselves to be intellectually superior.

They also find it challenging to understand nuance, feelings, emotions, instinct and intuition, which are all very important to you.

Cancerians make decisions based on gut instinct. You relate to people from a deeper place, not just on a head level.

Although you can educate Air signs about human emotion and the value of imagination and intuition, they won’t necessarily be open to receiving guidance from you.

It’s best to help them evolve by example and inference.

♥ Cancer and Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)

Most relationships between Water signs share a sympathetic bond and similar value system, and are mutually supportive.

Chances are that you have quite a number of Water sign friends.

You feel comfortable sharing your most intimate and personal feelings with each other.

Your Water sign friends can help you debrief and relax after a hard week.

♥ Cancer and Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)

Earth Signs can be great allies and help you feel secure.

The best Cancer love matches are probably Taurus and Virgo.

Virgos share your need to have time alone and respect your privacy.

On the other hand, Virgo can be a bit nitpicky and critical at times.

Your opposite sign is Capricorn and you bring out both the best and the worst in each other.

Capricorn tends to act as a kind of surrogate parent to you.

They can help you attain goals and make you feel secure, but this can lead to a dependency situation on your part.

Cancer and Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)

Fire signs will test you more than any other signs, but they are the people you can learn from the most.

You are highly imaginative and creative, but often struggle to step out of your comfort zone and acting independently.

You don’t like feeling exposed or vulnerable.

Encounters with Fire signs can make you feel anxious due to the fact they are so full-on, but they can really help you come out of your shell.
