Have you ever wondered what it is exactly that makes Cancer so intense?
People who are born under the Cancer sign can sometimes be stereotyped as nothing more than moody and over emotional creatures but the truth of the matter is Cancers are much more complex than that and they possess many unique traits and characteristics that aren’t always apparent the moment that you meet them.
This is the part 2 of 3 of the previous article: Top 5 Reasons That Make Cancer The Most Powerful Zodiac Sign (Part 1 of 3). Below you can read the next 5 reasons that make cancer the most powerful zodiac sign.
Reason 1: Cancer is mysterious and hard to read.
The Cancer has a mysterious characteristic to their personality that can make them seem like a bit of an enigma at times. They can be quite shy and reserved at times particularly when they don’t know a person all that well.
They’re not the type to give away all of their secrets right away and they don’t tend to broadcast their every thought and emotion like some of the other signs might do. This can make them extremely hard to read for those that don’t know them very well however it’s this same mysterious trait that also intrigues others and draws them into the Cancer’s world.
Cancers are complicated and they have many sides to them.
The Cancer personality is made up of many layers and those born under this zodiac sign are hard to put into any ‘one’ box. Just when someone thinks they’ve got them all figured out the Cancer will go and do something totally unexpected that they never see coming.
Reason 2: Cancer can experience crazy mood swings.
Those born under a water sign experience drastic mood changes over the course of a day. Sometimes Cancers mood can seem to change like the winds. When they are up they can feel amazing but when they’re feeling down their lows can also be just as intense. They often try their best to keep things under control but sometimes their emotions can overwhelm them.
Cancer’s moods are complex. On the surface they may appear either calm or turbulent, depending on the hour. Beneath the surface run deeper currents. Cancers are always feeling something. This sensitivity contributes to their powerful mood swings and makes Cancer one of, if not the most, sensitive of the Zodiac.
Reason 3: Cancer is always there for their friends, period. They instinctively protect their loved ones.
There are very few things that Cancer values more than their friendships and they will do just about anything to help out a close friend. They are great listeners and when someone that they care about hits a rough patch they are often willing to drop everything to lend their support. More than any other astrological sign, Cancers are exceptionally loving and caring.
It is no surprise Cancer is the sign that represents motherhood; Cancers have strong maternal instincts and are empathetic by nature. If you are lucky enough to be friends with Cancers, they will care about you more than they care about themselves. They will go out of their way to meet your emotional needs.
Cancers are protective, they will defend those they care about to the death.
One reason you want a Cancer on your team is because the sign is very loyal. When you get close to a Cancer, you are family, and the family-oriented crab will likely do just about anything for those it lets into the exclusive walls of its shell. While not natural-born fighters (in fact, quite the opposite), they turn full maternal and will attack when their nests are threatened.
Cancer puts their family and loved ones first and they have a strong natural instinct to nurture and protect those that they care about. You would be foolish to pick a fight with one of Cancer’s tribe… they don’t take that kind of thing lightly. In relationships, this can sometimes be seen as a negative quality, as Cancers can easily become jealous. But, it just means they care and want to protect what is theirs.
Reason 4: Cancer doesn’t get along with obnoxious and pushy personalities.
The Cancer can get a long with a wide variety of people but if you’re obnoxious, demanding and thinking that you can boss Cancer around then you better believe that you have another thing coming. Cancers repelled by those that that have no thought for others and they will be quick to distance them self from anyone that only cares about themselves
Reason 5: Cancer is open-minded and endlessly imaginative. They are good at adapting.
Cancer is a dreamer who tends to be limited by no boundaries when it comes to their imagination. They’re also extremely open to new ideas and they prefer to think deeply about things rather than simply taking everything at face value. Their favorite things about people are usually their quirks or flaws because those are the things that make people different.
Cancers are happiest when they’re sharing their love for something, like writing or poetry, with those around them. They tend to have a strong creative force, one that involves them with the arts in some capacity, and they take great pleasure in expressing themselves creatively. They also have good taste for food and admirable artistic sense.
Cancers are good at keeping up. Since crabs must shed their shells and find new ones often, known as molting, they remain strong in situations of change. While Cancers may not like being lonely, they are good at being alone.
The stereotypical “homebody” enjoys time spent on their own and being independent. Independence is a key part of adaptation, as it is the freedom of not having to rely on others to be comfortable. Cancers can be comfortable with themselves in many settings where they may be forced to adapt. source: zodiacthing.com
