When you have a big heart, as a Cancer does, you will notice that it’s challenging to form some relationships. You are open to loving and you are open to intimacy, but you are also scared at the same time to do something with this openness. You might be afraid that you are being too emotional, and that can cause you to bottle it up. In a relationship, it can cause you to be shut down, which is going to prevent you from having a truly intimate relationship. As a Cancer finds a partnership with another person, they are going to give themselves to the relationship. They want to be loved, and they are willing to change themselves in order to get the love they need – and deserve. The trick is that the Cancer needs to remember that a truly positive relationship is one that is filled with respect for who they are. You can’t hide who you are in order to be loved. Instead, you need to be willing to take the risk of being ‘too emotional’ and be okay with this part of your personality.
What’s helpful to you in relationships, Cancer, is when the relationship is clearly defined. When you know what to expect and what’s expected of you, it’s easier for you to navigate your interactions. Since many relationships are not clearly defined, it can help to have discussions with your partner to ensure you’re on the same page. While things might shift, having open and clear communication is the way to realize your goal of being in a committed relationship.
You may find in relationships that you want your partner to be as emotional as you are, even if you’re not sure what to do when things are intense. If you notice that your partner is not as emotionally available, it can make you frustrated and it can cause you to feel as though you’re too vulnerable. When you begin to notice this type of pattern in your relationship, it might be time to speak up.
To make your relationships work, you will need to share what you are feeling and be responsible for the feelings you have. Sometimes, others don’t cause your feelings, but rather they are because you need some time apart. If you can find a partner who is able to give you this space, then you are with the right person.
For the single Cancer, you might find that it’s hard to find someone who is willing to share their emotions they way that you do. You may need to look around for someone who shares your interests first and then begin to see how they respond to your emotional intuitiveness. By building a solid foundation, you can create a lasting relationship, and you can avoid any feelings of cautiousness or mistrust because they don't relate in the same way that you do.
