Cancers are cute. They pretend to be tough but it’s all an act. They have great memories and lots of them are good at history. They love anything old, like museums, antiques and your grandmother. They are fairly secretive and hide things – food in their drawers and cupboards for instance. They stay pretty close to home, are extremely psychic, have a great sense of humour and are the world’s best cooks. They collect things. Other people call this garbage but to them it’s gold…you’d never find a Cancer throwing a garage sale.
Cancers look for security on the one hand and adventure and novelty on the other. They are popular because they really listen to what others are saying. Their own voices are attractive too. They are naturals for sales work and in any kind of advisory capacity. Where their own problems are concerned, they can disappear inside themselves and brood, which makes it hard for others to understand them. Cancers spend a good deal of time worrying about their families and, even more so, about money. They appear soft but are hard to influence. Many Cancer are small traders and many more work in teaching or in the caring professions. They have a feel for history, perhaps collecting historical mementoes, and their memories are excellent. They need to have a home but they love travelling away from it, being happy in the knowledge that it is there waiting for them to come back to. There are few Cancers who seem to drift through life and expect other members of their family to keep them.
Romantically, they prefer to be settled and they fear being alone. A marriage would need to be really bad before they consider leaving and if they do, they soon look for a new partner. These people can be scoundrels in business because they hate parting with money once they have their hands on it. However, their charm and intelligence usually manage to get them out of trouble.
