Strong Love for Family
Each of the 12 zodiac signs is not independent, but each sign is assigned a story in which a person is born and their soul grows. In the story of the 12 zodiac signs, Cancer’s story is ‘a place where you go out where your curiosity leads you and return to after doing various things.’ For this reason, words such as ‘home’ and ‘family love’ symbolize Cancer, and Cancers are often described as homely and strongly maternal.
It takes a while for Cancer to open up, but once they do, they are extremely kind. They empathize with others, encourage them with kind words, and support them as a strong figure within their circle. On the other hand, they never forgive betrayal and strongly dislike dishonest behavior, such as being lied to or not keeping a promise. They have a strong dual personality, as they also have a side that instantly turns cold towards someone they dislike.
Strong Maternal Instinct and Caring Nature
Cancers have a strong maternal nature and are caring people. However, they sometimes overdo it and come across as meddlesome. They tend to give warnings and lectures from a parent’s perspective to the point where they can make comments like, ‘You’re my parent!’, which can sometimes bother those around them.
Being Appreciated is Their Purpose in Life
Whether it’s being meddlesome or empathizing with other people’s problems, it’s all about getting them to say, ‘Thank you, I’m glad you’re here!’ They feel more joy than most people when they are appreciated, and being appreciated becomes the driving force in their life. Therefore, if they don’t receive gratitude, they will quickly lose motivation.
Love for Children
Cancer individuals are generally seen as family-oriented. They find meaning in their lives when they are needed, so they feel great joy when their children rely on them. Toru Hashimoto, a famous lawyer and entertainer who is also known for having seven children, is a Cancer. From this, you can get a glimpse of Cancer’s love for children.”
Cancer’s Personality Traits
Popular Person Known for Smoothing Things Over
Cancer belongs to the water element, which values emotions, such as empathizing with others’ feelings and having them understand your feelings. Leveraging this characteristic, Cancers are good at gauging people’s feelings and reading the atmosphere of a place. In places where many people gather, such as workplaces and community gatherings, they often act as a lubricant, connecting people and softening the atmosphere.
More of a Supporting Character Than a Main Character
Cancers, who are more suited to being supporting characters than trying to stand out, don’t like too much attention being drawn to themselves. When they are in front of people, they immediately get nervous, struggle to say what they should have said, and sweat profusely even when it’s not hot. Many people may have experienced failures due to anxiety, such as not being able to properly explain the presentation materials they had prepared or stumbling over their words during a speech at a wedding.
Actually Delicate and Easily Hurt
Because of their strong sensitivity, for better or worse, Cancers are actually more easily hurt than others. It can be said that it is a characteristic of Cancer that a casual comment can hurt and worry them. However, even if something hurtful is said to them, they don’t want to show it publicly because they don’t want people to think, ‘Does that hurt?’ They smile on the outside, cry on the inside, and secretly heal their hurt hearts.
Tendency to Hold Onto Things
Cancers cherish memories very much. Therefore, it is difficult for them to throw away things that are filled with memories, such as photos, letters, and presents. There are good memories and there are bad memories. It’s nice not to forget good memories, but if they can’t forget bad memories, they end up causing themselves more suffering than necessary. Because they have a hard time letting go of bad memories and accumulate negative memories, they can be said to be the type of person who inevitably accumulates stress.
Loose with Their Wallet
It’s not just stress that accumulates. They also like to stock up on everyday items like toilet paper, shampoo, and detergent. They don’t feel satisfied unless they stock up, so they tend to buy a lot in bulk. Because they have the tendency to want new things and useful goods immediately, money flows in and out quite rapidly. Rather than saving money for the future, they tend to buy what they want out of a ‘right now!’ attitude, so their wallet is loosely tied and they’re not very good at saving money.”
Characteristics of Cancer Men
Cancer men may seem easy-going at first glance, but they pay attention to details. They are particularly concerned about cleaning and hygiene, such as hair in the drain or dirt on the dishes. When inviting a Cancer man to your home, be sure to clean thoroughly.
Cancer men also tend to be very family-oriented, so they don’t like to hear bad things about their family members. If a Cancer man were to say bad things about his parents, instead of taking advantage of the situation and joining in, he would say things like, ‘Maybe they just happened to be in a bad mood at the time?’ or ‘Sometimes that happens.’ This will greatly increase their confidence in you.
Cancer men are serious and hard workers, so they do their jobs well, but they don’t have a strong desire for advancement. If anything, their stance is that family is more important than work. Therefore, you need to be careful not to overburden them by asking them to work overtime or leaving them with too many big tasks. Please be considerate in maintaining a work-life balance.
Characteristics of Cancer Women
Cancer women have strong emotions and are not good at controlling their emotions, so they sometimes get angry and embarrass those around them. However, since they have a calm and kind personality, please be careful not to make comments like ‘You’re moody’ or ‘Do you have a double personality?’ If you call them ‘moody’ or ‘dual personality,’ they will take it more seriously than necessary and feel depressed.
And because of the intensity of their emotions, their emotions change rapidly, making it difficult for them to make accurate decisions. Because they tend to act based on emotion rather than logic, they can be said to be easily swayed by emotions and easily deceived. After listening carefully, if you feel that your child is too emotional to make a calm decision, try gently persuading her so that he or she can make the right decision. Don’t try to persuade them with harsh words. The key is to be gentle and persuasive.
Cancer women are also very affectionate and motherly, so they enjoy being relied on and pampered, but they are actually quite spoiled. However, she is not good at being pampered, so creating a situation where she can be pampered honestly is very important for maintaining her mental health.”
Cancer’s Love Tendencies

Makes an Appeal
Cancers are single-minded and have a lovey-dovey personality. They actively promote themselves when they find someone they like. In order to get the other person’s attention, they start thinking about things that would make the other person happy and begin appealing to them in various ways. From research to action, they spare no effort to win over their love interest.
Likes Serious and Sincere People
Rather than flashy people, Cancers prefer those who have a plain, serious appearance and a sense of sincerity. They generally prefer black hair. They’re not interested in casual relationships; they always want to date someone with marriage in mind, so they’re very concerned about not only the other person but also what kind of family the other person comes from. Looking ahead to marriage, they prefer sincere relationships where they can talk about each other’s families and future plans.
Cancer is a lonely sign, so when they’re away from their partner, they get anxious and feel very lonely. They’re the type of person who wants to spend as much time as they can with the person they like. Therefore, they don’t really like it when each person values their own time, such as work or hobbies, and continues to have an independent adult relationship. For better or for worse, while depending on each other, they want to immerse themselves fully in the other person and share a lot of time with each other.
Self-Talk is a Sign of Interest
Many Cancers are good at conversation. Not only do they bring out topics that make it easy for the other person to talk, but they also respond well to what the other person says, making the conversation very lively. However, just because the conversation is lively doesn’t necessarily mean that the other person is interested in you. What you should pay attention to is whether Cancer is actively sharing information about themselves or not. If they start talking about their past relationships and their family without you even asking, that’s a sign that they’re interested in you.
Desires Romantic Dates
Cancers have a serious personality and don’t like to go on adventures in their work or life, but when it comes to love, they have a desire to go on a little adventure. It seems that they secretly admire situations such as those that make them laugh and scenes that appear in girls’ manga. Although it is difficult to create situations like those in girls’ manga, they have a weakness for romantic scenes, such as people talking about love in a place with a beautiful night view or someone singing a love song for them.
How to Pursuit a Person With Cancer Zodiac Sign
Cancerians are very cautious and protect their mind and body with a hard armor, much like a crab’s shell. When you try to break the armor by force, it cracks with the crab’s scissors! An important part will be cut off! I’m joking, but it’s not a good idea to force things from the beginning. First of all, change to your black-haired, serious-looking appearance, which Cancers prefer, and gradually shorten the distance by saying hello and asking questions about things you don’t understand.
As you continue to make such steady efforts, if Cancer starts to talk to you about themselves, that’s a sign that they’re starting to open up to you. Find a good time and ask them out on a date. However, since they aren’t dating yet, the basic way of inviting them is to be “casual.” It’s fine if it’s a bit contrived, like, “You said you like 〇〇, right? Actually, I like it too, but I don’t have anyone to go with, so if you don’t mind, would you like to go see it with me?” Make excuses to go out together and turn it into a date.
Cancer’s View on Marriage
Cancerians love spending time at home. Therefore, they want to keep their home comfortable at all times, so they don’t have to worry about doing housework such as cooking, cleaning, and tidying up. No matter how much it doesn’t bother you, if you are always forced to do everything yourself and don’t even say thank you, your dissatisfaction will gradually build up, and one day it will suddenly explode. Cancers have strong emotional ups and downs and tend to quickly shut down someone they dislike, so don’t be too dependent on their devoted attitude.
Cancers have a strong desire to cherish their time at home, so they enjoy cooking together while having fun conversations and changing clothes together. They like people who value even the most casual everyday things.
They want to build relationships where they can not only enjoy special occasions such as events and leisure activities but also share fun in casual everyday life. Their ideal is a married life in which both partners have a strong desire to take care of their families and can overcome any difficulties hand in hand.
Jobs Suitable for Cancer
Cancer’s guardian planet is the Moon. The moon symbolizes motherhood and behind-the-scenes support. Because they love children and have strong nurturing skills, they are suitable for teachers and childcare workers. In the sense that they support people behind the scenes, jobs such as cooks and nurses may also be suitable for them. It is also said that jobs related to daily life such as supermarkets, general stores, real estate, and interior design are suitable for them.
Cancers are more intuitive than logical. Therefore, if you choose a creative occupation that allows you to express your sensibilities rather than a job that requires you to develop theories, you will be able to enjoy your work.
Because they have a strong sense of camaraderie, they are good at working in teams rather than working alone.
Cancer is a Reliable Person Who Cares About Their Friends
Cancers have strong likes and dislikes and emotional ups and downs and can sometimes become hysterical. But at their core, they are very warm-hearted people. They have a stronger sense of caring for their family and friends than anyone else. So if you have them on your side, they will be a very reassuring presence.
