Capturing the heart of a Cancer may depend upon their emotions and mood. They’re very sensitive and caring. Keeping a Cancer smiling is key. Cancer is an emotionally complex sign. Extraordinarily sensitive and caring, they love deeply and completely. They can also be extraordinarily moody, not to mention shy about revealing their feelings. So if you’d like to delve into their watery depths and capture the heart of a Cancer, here are some things you need to know.
Be in the Flow
“Still waters run deep” describes the emotional nature of some Cancers, while others resemble a tidal wave. It all depends on their mood, because Cancer is an emotional Water sign ruled by the Moon. Their feelings ebb and flow like the tides. Being in tune with your Cancer means getting to know the flow and how to react (or not react) to it. Most times, being sensitive to their needs and not overreacting to any given situation will help dissolve the storm clouds.
Get Free of Emotional Debris
Here’s an especially important tip: Work through emotional issues as they come up. That’s good advice for any couple, true, but Water signs, especially Cancer and Scorpio, have the greatest tendency to hold onto emotional wounds. If your Cancer’s feelings are hurt, their emotional and sexual energies will go into hiding. They can crawl into their shell — the symbol for Cancer is the Crab — and not come out until you make a (preferably tearful) apology.
Also, if you have a tendency to withdraw emotionally, your Cancer will become quite clingy, and increasingly demanding, until you reconnect with them. So if you don’t want to stir up a tsunami, be sure your connection is intact.
Sexy and Sentimental
Cancer is the most sentimental sign of the zodiac. They enjoy gifts, gestures, and other tokens of your affection that remind them of your relationship. A photo album of your trip together or poem that expresses your love will assure you a place in their heart. After you’ve been together a while, going back to the place where you met, proposed, or just enjoyed a romantic evening together will inspire their devotion.
Sexually, being attuned to your Cancer’s deepest feelings will bring out their passion. Their exceptional sensitivity and powers of intuition make them adept at discerning your sexual needs as well. They aim to please and can be quite creative between the sheets.
Cancer rules food, nurturing, and family, so a home-cooked meal in a cozy setting will can be the ultimate foreplay. They love to nurture and be nurtured, so a gentle massage or bathing together — remember, they’re a Water sign! — will get them going as well.
Cancer the Comedian
One other note about the Crab is their loony sense of humor. They love to laugh. Just look at this lineup of famous Cancer comedians: Robin Williams, Tom Hanks, Dan Aykroyd, Milton Berle, Mel Brooks, Bill Cosby, Will Ferrell and Gilda Radner. If you can keep your Cancer smiling, you’ll stand a better chance of capturing — and keeping — their heart.
