WHAT A fulfilling sign! This is one of the best signs to be born under if you're a woman. Mind you, it may be too much for some Crabettes to cope with!
The Cancerian woman is endowed with almost mystical powers of sensitivity. In the Tarot, she's the Enchantress, because of her incredible emotional energy. Selina Scott has got the Moon in Cancer, making her vulnerable and defensive, and that is truly Crab-like. Sometimes the Cancerian lass can be too sensitive for words, so it's vital for her to be organised and aware emotionally. Otherwise she can be tossed about on the sea of life like a piece of flotsam and jetsam, with bits torn off in all directions. On one level, this can mean that she falls in love with love. because her emotions don't tell her when to stop. ('Why stop?' she'll say.) She can gush forth her feelings in such a torrential way that she'll frighten everyone off for miles around. And she can become so protective and possessive of people, pals, kids and cousins, that it's difficult for them to escape her Cancerian clutches. She's terribly tenacious. Whereas on a professional level that's lovely, because tenacity can help ambition along, on an emotional level it can be a disaster, because she won't know when to give up and stop clinging. (Her little claws can clutch and crush until she's squeezed all the love out of a liaison.) She won't be able to see when a relationship is ovaand out (Roger), and even if she gets an inkling, instead of admitting it's ended, she'll carry on clinging just in case there's a chance and love willl turn to hate, on both sides.
Her emotions are so highly developed, perhaps even to the point of excess, that in the end they can wreak havoc, rather than make her an amorous, affectionate, docile, devoted, protective and passive person. (Phew!) Other people may misunderstand her motives, and see her as a grasping, scheming, over-emotional woman whom everyone tries to avoid. Her feelings and desires can be too powerful, and far too strong for her to handle.
When she's being positive, the Cancerian woman can be superbly sympathetic, sensitive and supportive. If she channels these emotions properly, and devotes herself to her partner in a controlled, constructive way, then everything in the garden will be lovely. But if she's negative, she can pulverise everything in her path with her phantasmagorically potent passions. Then she'll weep and wail when she's reduced everything to ruins around her. The old adage 'It'll end in tears' must have been created by a Crab. (Where's the Kleenex?)
Cancerian women who have organised their existences are excellent, and they'll protect their partners, and fend for their families, and anyone else they care for, devotedly, but with discipline. Positive Crabettes won't be reluctant to reprimand when it's required, whereas the negative Nellies can feel too timid to tell anyone off. Of course, after a tirade or a ticking off, the Cancerian woman will go away worrying if she's done the right thing, and have a wonderful weep. But at least she'll have said something, and probably she'll have acted wisely.
Size-wise, most Crabettes are comfortably, cosily curvy. (Look at Gina Lollobrigida you did?) They can even be delightfully dumpy, and often have big breasts, which are a part of the body ruled by this sign. Cancerian women usually smile a lot, and are a joy to be with. because they have such warm, homely and motherly auras. They will always be trying to feed you up. And Crabettes love having children! Cancerian women include Fern Britton and Molly Sugden. (Aren't they cuddly?)
Don't make the mistake of thinking that Cancerian women must be terribly unliberated, being so devoted to domesticity, because that's not true at all. They can be feminists, but it will be with sympathy and sense, and they won't come across as furious and fanatical as some of their more strident sisters.
If she hasn't got kids of her own. the Crabette will keep a pet. Some signs, such as Sagittarius, adore animals, but remember that they're four-legged friends. If Cancerians keep pets, they can become child substitutes. For example, a dachshund will stop being a dog and become a daughter.
These women make the best mothers of the zodiac, without a shadow of a doubt. But they can be ultrapossessive, and if they're negative, they can be very complex about their children indeed. The thought of their kids leaving the nest can send them into terrible tizzies, and can make some mixed-up Crabs suicidal. (It won't be 'Fly away Peter, fly away Paul', but 'Come back, Peter, all is forgiven'!) But if they have their heads screwed on and their emotions How forth fluently, they will command real respect from their kids. Their lovely warmth will then flood out without them being clinging and claustrophobic. And that's when they'll be wonderfully warm, lusciously loving, captivating Crabs. But they must watch the tendency to mollycoddle their kids and not let them out of their sight. (Otherwise, it'll be a real case of smother love.)
Cancerian women find it hard to separate themselves from their families and, even as adults, they often spend as much time with their folks as they did when they lived at home. A prime example is my caring Cancerian manager, Jacque, who spends most of her spare time with her family. And, like most Cancerian women, when you ask her to name her friends, she can count them on the fingers of one hand, because her life revolves round her relations.
There are tremendous tie-ups and lots of links between Cancer and Taurus, and it's super to see these signs together. They can be so alike, both needing security, but in different, complementary ways. Another pootchy pairing is Cancer and Capricorn. Put these two together, and you get the real Darby and Joan of the zodiaci
