Typical Cancer Traits We All Know and Love
Cancers are notoriously stereotyped as being sensitive, but let’s be real for a second… there is some truth to that. Why are Cancers so emotional? Well, with the moon as Cancer’s ruling planet, a planet that controls our emotions and changes signs every 2 to 2 ½ days, it’s no wonder why Cancers have a tendency to be particularly moody. They can’t help it!
While they are sensitive creatures, it’s also important to remember they have a hard, nearly indestructible shell. Due to their naturally intuitive sixth sense, they expect you to be able to read their minds (like they can read yours)—and for that reason may have difficulty communicating their feelings. This can also lead to passive-aggressive behavior if their needs aren’t met. Unfortunately, convincing a Cancer to be direct with you about their feelings can feel like pulling teeth.

They can also be incredibly shy in new social situations, which only fuels their homebody reputation. If you’re looking for a wingman or wingwoman—your Cancer friend isn’t it. After one drink, they’re the friend that will Irish goodbye you and head home for some Netflix and their bed. If you’re feeling low and want to binge watch some of your favorite romantic comedies, Cancer’s your sign.
That said, Cancer friends always have your back. As one of the most loyal and compassionate signs of the zodiac, they’ll be there to hold your hair or dry your tears any day. This makes total sense though since in astrology, the moon is the planet that represents mothers and our femininity. So of course Cancers are nurturing and devoted to those they love. They’re also known for being incredibly protective and will go to great lengths for their friends and family.
Often labeled as hopeless romantics, Cancers look for love anywhere—the grocery store, waiting in line at Target, even while pumping gas. When in love, they love hard—they’re hardcore clingers. Space is not an option if you’re dating a Cancer, and you can expect to be either little or big spoon all night, every night. Cuddling is a must.
