Cancers are domestic home bodies and love to nurture others. They are kind, gentle, patient and feel all moods to the fullest, joy, sorrow, compassion and hatred – usually in silence. This commonly turns into a nasty vindictiveness over the years. Cancer is often considered tedious and boring by those who don’t understand them.  Much to their chagrin, they sometimes get mistaken for furniture at the few parties they get invited to.  For excitement they might enjoy a quiet evening at home blogging with convicted felons.  Or let their vivid imagination run wild with some crackpot conspiracy.  Don’t worry, they rarely act upon these delusions. Family is important to Cancer, occasionally in a unhealthy pathological manner. If they don’t have a family they often create one with close friends, work associates, strangers they’ve abducted and on occasion plush toys, Barbie/GI Joe figurines or adult blow-up dolls. It’s always great family fun with Cancer. Typically Cancer forgives easily, but has a good memory for every time you’ve crossed them and can wait years for payback. They can be sulky, devious, moody and laziness may become a problem. They are often fanatical couch potatoes, with a weakness for TV sports, soap operas and quiz shows. Cancer are romantic by nature and can love long and strong and sometimes obsessively. Their arrest record for stalking is surprising to those who thought them to be ineffectual. Cancer is a giver and wear their heart on their sleeve. This can be taken advantage of by those who can tolerate the trite conversation.  Over-sensitivity to any kind of criticism and negative mood swings make many cross the street to avoid Cancer. Home bodies to the extreme, many Cancer battle with agoraphobia. Beware that your emotional vulnerability and excessive nurturing often creeps people out. Self-pity and quiet sobbing are some of your most endearing qualities.
