Cancer 21 June - 22 July

Cancer individuals are known for their sentimental and emotional nature. Cancer thinks from heart and often makes decisions based on intuition and feelings, rather than plain logic. Cancer individuals also have very strong sense of attachment to something or someone that they hold dear.

These are one of the most loving people. Family and friends are generally of extreme importance to a person under this zodiac, and being accepted and loved by them is a top priority. In fact Cancers do not like to be alone, but always want to have someone by their side who can show them love and affection. Many Cancerians eventually wish to have a family and create their own cozy home, where they can feel warm, comfortable and secure.

Once a Cancerian loves someone, he will do anything for that person and will not even expect much in return, except for love and loyalty. Cancerians are usually naturally good parents.

On the bad side, the Crab can get very clingy and moody. At times these individuals can let emotions take over and drive them into depression.

Cancerians usually have few but very good friends, that is not to say that they are not sociable, but it is just that they prefer quality to quantity. These people are also rarely very materialistic and rather value the spiritual gains, like family and friends, with comparison to money and fame.

How many Cancers does it take to screw a light bulb?

Only one, but it took him half a day because he had to mourn the previous light bulb that died.

Sex habits

To these people sex is an expression of love. It is usually slow and sensual, and is all about harmony at mind. Rumors have it that, many of these folks like to do it in the water, particularly on a beach. Romantic ain't it? To many Cancers sex is a big step forward in a relationship, so one should be careful not to break their loving hearts.

“When are we getting married?” is probably Cancerians' favorite after-sex quote.

How to seduce Cancer

Pamper them and allow them to pamper you

  • Be romantic and sensitive
  • Be a good listener

The following is what you should not do, if you want a Cancer person to like you:

  • Be shallow
  • Point out their vices
  • Talk bad about others

Love traits

  • Very romantic
  • Crave for love
  • Prefer serious relationships
  • Very caring towards their loved one
  • Possessive but also very loyal
  • Very emotional

Drinking style

Cancer is a comfort drinker, and an extra wine with dinner or an after-work beer can be extra comforting to our dear Cancers. Like fellow water signs Scorpio and Pisces, Crabs must be careful not to abuse alcohol. Cancers are brilliant at ferreting out secret parties and insinuating themselves on VIP lists - and, in true Hollywood style, Cancers are never really drunk; instead, they get “tired and emotional” (read: weepy when lubricated). But there's nothing better than swapping stories (and spit) over a few bottles of inky red wine with your favorite Cancer. Even your second-favorite Cancer will do. The sign also rules the flavor vanilla, and you'd be adored if you served up a vanilla vodka and soda.
