The Cancer Man: Key Traits In Love, Career And Life

The tolerant and intuitive family man.

Cancer is a sign that is governed by the Moon. Introverted, enigmatic and contemplative, the man in Cancer keeps things to himself. It takes a few meetings before getting to know this man.

You can’t force things with a Cancer, he will hide as soon as things start to become too much for him. You will need to be patient for him to open on his own.

The Cancer will never use his aggressiveness for something else but self-defence. When threatened, he retreats. Be careful not to hurt his feelings as he is sensitive.

If you find the Cancer man to be bitter or cold, remember it is only a face he puts on for others to see. If you manage to break down his walls, he is actually compassionate, warm, and loving.

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.

It’s not easy to see how a Cancer man is, from the first few encounters. His moods are changing from one minute to another, and this is all happening because of the Moon and its lunar phases.

This doesn’t indicate the Cancer man has a double personality, more of a fluctuating one. There are many emotions in a Cancer man, and they change a lot, coming in waves.

As he can easily analyse and identify people’s needs and intentions, the Cancer man is great at business and at meeting with people for different agreements. The same traits would make him a good journalist, aviator, doctor, educator, psychologist and lawyer.
