Cancer can be the most challenging and difficult to get to know. Individuals are deeply intuitive and sentimental and have a lot of affection and respect for their family and loved ones. They are extremely loyal, passionate and sensitive when it comes to matters regarding their home and family.

Cancer: Love

Cancer is a very sensitive sign which lays a lot of focus on emotions in their relationships. They will give themselves to the cause even if it means getting hurt in the process. For partners, they always choose a person who can understand them through non-verbal, silent contact, and a shared daily routine and their affection won’t last long with superficial, flaky or unreliable partners.

However, cancer individuals can sometimes be taken for granted and can be easily misguided by people they admire and trust into changing their honest approach to a modern one that doesn’t fit their true personality.  Compassion and understanding that a Cancer chose to send your way shouldn’t ever be taken for granted, or they will show you just how bad of a match you two are in the long run.

Cancer: Friends and Family

When it comes to friendships, Cancer representatives will gladly connect with new social contacts, but are extremely sensitive to people not approved by their closest surroundings. They love spending quality time with loved ones at home where an intimate atmosphere can be created.

Cancer is the sign of family and these individuals care about family bonds and their home more than any other sign of the zodiac. When their personal lives are fulfilled, they make wonderful, caring parents that seem to know how their children feel even when they are miles apart.

Cancer: Career

When it comes to hard work, cancer comes number one. They will finish their work on it and do it diligently to their best efforts. For Cancer representatives, security and money are of great importance and stand for the real reason they work as much as they do.

They easily earn money and focus on saving, investing, and watching their investments grow daily. Resourceful and good at managing time and finances, this is a sign that is often in charge of all money in the household, keeping their partner or other family members under control.
