As we move into the Summer Solstice, we enter into the astrological sign of Cancer from June 21st - July 22nd. The fourth sign of the astrological zodiac, Cancer is ruled by the Moon which governs our emotional body and how we react to our inner emotions and our outer home life, environment and family. Cancer is symbolized by the Mother who is the nurturer and care giver. She is the natural provider and giver of the emotions and traditional family values.
The Cancer man feels emotions deeply in a relationship and wants the reciprocation of a partner to understand him on an emotional level and give in to his needs and wants. In the sign of Cancer, we see someone who is a hopeless romantic and who can get lost in his daydreams as he is highly imaginative. He is quite a protective crab and can easily become wounded or defensive if someone does not understand him emotionally in a committed relationship. He portrays himself as a stable, safe partner who would like to spoil his lover or partner with attention and to fully satisfy them in every way. He can be quite insecure emotionally and get caught up in how he is feeling. Don’t be surprised if he retreats back into his shell, withdrawing himself from the world and even his closest relationships.
What is Love to a Cancer Man?
Love to a Cancer man is nurturing and sensitive. He is concerned with family, home, and comforts such as food and feeling the emotional closeness of a woman. The Cancer man enjoys the pleasures of love making and the emotional commitment of sharing with his partner. The Cancer man is the perfect gentlemen or charming prince that can sweep you off your feet as he is quite composed and cool on the outside but brewing with emotions and eroticism on the inside. He longs for his soulmate or perfect partner to go through this life journey hand in hand sharing love and emotional intimacy.
To Cancer, love is greatly connected with the bond or relationship they had as a child with their mother. If they had a close bonded connection with their mother, there can be a dependency or attachment that is hard to break free from which can lead to unhealthy relationship patterns of being overly dependent on the woman. If the mother was absent from their lives, they have a hard time opening up emotionally as they may have trust issues around being vulnerable with their feelings. They may hide away and retreat into their shells as the Cancer "Crab" can often do when feeling insecure.
