cancer pro/con.


Cancer children are more sensitive and open as children than they are as adults because their defence mechanism has not built up through negative circumstances over time yet. So they are more outgoing, more friendly, more bubbly and probably more timid. These children enjoy affection and reassurance more so than most, it is important to do that to show them that you appreciate and love them and their emotions will be catered to. Cancer children are very helpful and giving, you’ll find they are popular with friends from being so sweet natured and kind. They can also be the one to hang around with the unpopular kid in an attempt to make them feel wanted. At home they are likely the same, always helping around the house and wanting to take care of people. They are funny children and usually make people laugh without trying.


Your cancer child is sensitive to their surroundings so if they are around negative situations, they can get very affected by it mentally and not know how to express what they are feeling. They can be extremely emotionally needy children and it can be hard for certain parents to provide the exact amount of emotional attention they need. Some of these kids, especially cancer girls, can learn that emotional manipulation works early and can do it to many of their peers at school. Finding themselves going up the food chain at school in an unhealthy, manipulative and bully like way. Cancer boys can be very quiet with a heavy temper when their emotions are not handled correctly.


A Cancer parent is really affectionate and caring. They love to kiss, hug their children and provide them emotional stability and security. They are extremely understanding and open with their children, Cancer parent is usually the child’s favourite parent. They are more easygoing and yes people, usually just preferring to be laidback than be strict and domineering. They are usually heavily submissive and not controlling. Cancer parent is funny, they enjoy making their children laugh, and they are extreme homebodies and make the house a pleasant place to live in through decor or even just working hard to provide money for a good house. They do enjoy going out to family trips and family holidays. Their happiness is really a happy family.


Cancer parents are extremely emotional, this could come in the form of anger, or other emotional manipulation tactics. They can sometimes be emotionally overwhelming for their child especially if the child is someone who struggles to deal with their own emotions let alone adding their parents ones to them. Their submissive behaviour can sometimes make them extreme pushovers and poor disciplinarians. It can cause unhealthy patterns in the household with children realising that their Cancer parent is being walked over by their more dominant partner. Cancer parents can sometimes put financial stability above the actual caretaking of their children which can cause abandonment issues. Cancer parents can sometimes be dismissive of things they don’t understand logically because they tend to only understand things from an emotional perspective which can cause a conflict in understanding between them and a more logical thinking child. Their anger can cause unhealthy family dynamics too – especially cancer fathers.


Cancer are ruled by the moon, so they’re extremely sensitive people. This doesn’t mean they go around crying every second, this means they’re in tune with theirs and other people’s emotional feelings and vibes. These are good friends to have as they will notice a change in atmosphere and mood instantly and know that there is something wrong with you. They are the types to constantly check up on you and ensure they are looking after your emotional security. They are clingy and affectionate friends and will contact you consistently and enjoy your company. They are sarcastic in humour, very laidback and don’t take themselves seriously so they make funny friends you can be yourself around. These friends enjoy chilling with their group of friends especially in areas where they can look good, eat and have a good wild time creating memories. They are loyal and will usually have the same friends for long.


Becoming friends with a cancer firstly isn’t easy. As friendly as they are, they are not welcoming of everyone into their close circle. To become part of that you need to grind and it’s not easy. You could end up feeling like an absolute beg and feel your pride is being put to the test. These friends can sometimes be emotionally demanding, they expect your attention and conversation at all times and it can be extremely draining for someone who is busy. They sometimes do not understand that everyone’s not like them and they can read your lack of convo wrong and take it personally. These friends keep their cards close to their chest and may not always tell you how they feel so they can hold resentment to something just sulking rather than expressing it. They also can allow a friendship to end with minimal to no effort to try sort it. The most toxic ones can lie, be manipulative, cause extreme problems in your life through conniving behaviour and trying to ruin your name/rep.


In a relationship Cancers are affectionate and sweet. They are usually the more submissive partner unless in a relationship with a more submissive partner and are usually the more laid-back, relaxed partner. They are not high maintenance and what they ask for in romance they give too. They are sensual, loving and respectful. And really just ask for the same back. They are cute and timid and good listeners. They are homebodies and manage to take care of anything to do with the home even if they are the bread winners. Cancers are really forgiving and understanding, they are people who will literally try to understand your motive behind anything and they do not judge. So they are easy to speak to and extremely complimentary. They can make you feel reassured the same way they’d want to.


Cancer being the crab can sometimes hold in their emotions and put up a wall to partners so that they do not know what they are thinking or feeling. Resulting in themselves feeling emotionally unsatisfied and uncomforted. Sometimes they can use their emotions to manipulate a situation, and express all that they had concealed at a time that someone else expresses their feelings towards something. Which can be dismissive and selfish. Some partners of cancers find them emotionally manipulative and can use many emotional tactics to win people’s love or win a disagreement. Cancers can be extremely busy in a relationship if they have not yet established themselves. Making them unavailable and unresponsive because they’re so busy which can make people feel unloved. There’s sometimes not enough reassurance you can give a cancer, you may find yourself feeling like you’re with someone who is insecure and draining. Some cancers will go as far as to find reassurance elsewhere, they won’t cheat but they will do things people may consider disloyal like seeking attention of others and maybe going as far as to contact their ex if they’re on good terms. Cancers sometimes make it hard for you to move on, because if they see you moving on, they may purposely come back just to ensure you don’t. Then leave you again. They’re also amazing at finding no faults in their actions and never accepting their parts to play in situations. They also can be easily manipulated and used, due to their forgiving and trusting nature.


Cancers are creative and find it easy to be motivated. These are cardinal signs so being lazy and inactive is not something they enjoy, and when they aren’t doing anything they tend to feel useless and unfulfilled. They are hardworking and good at preserving, when a Cancer has a goal, they will work at it until they have achieved it. These are the best at ensuring they set multiple goals and tasks for themselves. They are smart workers and you can usually see their come up, they don’t mind working alone or working in a team. Whichever way they ensure they succeed and bring everyone else up with them. They are not selfish, greedy, stingy or self motivated in their pursuit to success.


Sometimes Cancer’s ideas can become too much and overwhelming which can cause them to feel demotivated because they don’t know how to put their plans into fruition, they don’t know how to polish their plan and they don’t know how to make the time from their already busy schedule to start new things. It can become a hot mess and just discourage them. Cancers also sometimes need to learn to keep plans and successes to themselves. Many are motivated by reassurance and admiration, the enjoyment of letting people know how successful they have become and where they are trying to go business wise. Which is great. Why shouldn’t you show off what you worked for? Unfortunately, not everyone wants the same for you that you want for yourself, if you’re spiritual like me you’ll be aware of evil eye. Just be aware of not letting your enemies know your every move, that’s the quickest way to cancel yourself out and allow bad luck into your life. Lastly Cancers need to learn how to multitask friendships/relationships and business. Don’t completely restrict yourself from receiving the affection many want to give you and feel you deserve. Open yourself up to the potential of love that can aid you to success. Also try not be too money motivated to the point you make your brand tacky due to accepting business opportunities below your level. Realise your worth.

I am a 22 year old, self taught astrologer from London. I’m a Sagittarius sun, Pisces moon, Virgo rising. I got into astrology when I first liked someone and struggled to read everything about them. Being the over thinker I am, I hated wondering because I’d always fill in the blanks with my own assumptions. I wanted everything to be as transparent as possible, seeing as reading them was like attempting to read hieroglyphics. (They’re a Taurus btw, hopefully you can understand my struggle now) Anyway, I searched “what are Taurus like in love", which led to “how to know a Taurus loves you” which led to “Sagittarius and Taurus relationship”, everything they said was literally a mirror of my partner and also true of our situationship. Long story short, it ended. But I got into a longer and better relationship. One with myself and astrology! Since then I’ve looked up everything I could on everything I could. Still learning and still growing. So I’m basically here to share my knowledge and growth with you along the way. I hope you enjoy. Thank you.
