Cancerians are the most unpredictable of the zodiacs. The individuals can range from being timid, shy and introverted to the most brilliant, jovial and celebrated. It’d be unfair to term them as unsocial; it’s just cancerians need solitariness as much as they need to socialize. They may appear introvert and thick skinned but there’s this really sensitive and emotional side to their personality which is known to the proximate ones only. These are the highly imaginative lot who are fantastical to the extent that they usually try to fit their life in a romantic story.

Now let’s have a comparative look at the cancerians


Emotional, affectionate and loyal. Often blessed with creative and oratorical skills. They are the most caring and sympathetic people you’ll ever come across. They tend to get absorbed in the milieu easily and are gifted with the sense of intuition.

Not So Good!

Cancerians are overly emotional and sensitive beings and they get attached to people and things real soon without being realistic. Moody, devious and often suffering from low self esteem infuses a sense of self pity in them. Being overly giving they end up martyred at times.

Love life

Cancerians are mysterious and complex but once they come out of their shells they prove to be very romantic, caring and loyal partners, though clingy and over sensitive. They are sentimental to the extent of their imagined fantasy lives and when they don’t get the same response from their partners, they become depressed and clingy. They give precedence to their families and would go far extents to bring happiness and harmony in their family lives. Cancerians are found to be traditional in their ways. Relationships with cancerians can be very fulfilling and nurturing.


Cancerians are one of the most sexual signs. Sex is an all engaging experience to them and they are likely to use aroma candles, flowers, and sensual ambience to stimulate all senses. Sex with cancerians involves a lot of foreplay and cuddling afterwards. The key to have a good sexual experience with them is to have emotional intimacy first. They are not too experimental in sex but will happily follow if their partner insists on one.


Cancerians are the most compatible with Capricorns. The reassuring nature of Capricorns provides the insecure cancerians a sense of security.  Apart from that, cancerians can sail smoothly with Virgo, Pisces, Taurus and Scorpio.


Due to the artistic gifts they possess, cancerians perform good as actors, theatre artists, writers, novelists, etc. Their intuitive minds can help them in business, investments and securities. Cancerians can be idealistic and be a good leader spiritually or otherwise.
