Cancer in Love
Love is something of a Cancer pastime. You’re an attractive person and will have no difficulty in finding admirers. All’s well to start with and you thoroughly enjoy that first fine careless rapture, until you realize that a love affair makes demands on both partners. You’re not so keen on that, and you will probably withdraw unless your lover happens to be the one.
You tend to hide your emotions, but you’re a romantic at heart. You long to find that perfect someone with whom you can have a long-term relationship. If you’re a woman, you’ll be subconsciously looking for a father for your children. If you’re a man, you may be seeking a mother figure. Sometimes you tend to rush into a relationship, but because you need security, you’ll usually hold back until you are sure of yourself and your would-be partner.
Despite your instinctive caution about choosing a lover, you’re always reluctant to end a relationship. You won’t want to let them go, even if they have passed their expiration date and forgotten your birthday. This highlights the possessive streak in your nature, something to be controlled and concealed as much as possible. It’s not endearing.
