The Cancer Wife: Home Truly is Where the Heart is.
The Cancer woman may care about nothing else but her family and home. It doesn’t matter where she may be with her loved ones, she can turn any place into a comfortable nest.
She knows how to decorate and put the family pictures to real use. What she hates the most is having to move or to make changes. After all, her home is the place where she can retreat under a protective shell, especially when the world seems mean and difficult to understand.
She treats this place not only as a sanctuary, but also her loved ones’ gathering place, so she protects it with everything she’s got.
In the same manner, she protects her children and wants them to feel secure no matter what. She will be by their side her entire life, while they will always come to her when they need to be taken care of and to be loved.
Her family and the people she thinks of as friends are very important to her. One way in which she expresses her love for them is by cooking big dinners that are sure to be to the liking of everybody gathered at the table.
The people in her life will always feel safe and supported in her presence. She’s the mother of the Zodiac and doesn’t hesitate to prove it. This is why she’s always nice, tolerant, patient and warm.
Her husband is very happy to see that she doesn’t ask for too much of him. What she wants is to be supported and cared for, especially in time of need. It’s difficult for her to accept being criticized because she doesn’t criticize anyone herself.
She sees home as the place where her husband is. Of course, the way she is depends a lot on the planets in her birth chart, but most Cancer women are the best mothers and wives. No one can have more love for family than they do, even if they’re moody and don’t know where to place their feelings when having them.
The Cancer woman will get married young because she needs protection and to be supported. In case she doesn’t have a strong family background and character, she will grow to be dependent on her husband. It’s not unusual for her to put him on a pedestal. In case he betrays her, she will take a lot of time to recover.
The Cancer Husband: Naturally Maternal
The Cancer man sometimes acts like a mother because his maternal instincts are very strong. What he wants from life is to live in a warm and nurturing environment and to tend to others’ needs, which is very good news for the ladies who want to be taken care of and smothered with love.
He loves spending his time at home, seeing this is the place where he feels secure and safe from the outside world. He’s very happy taking care of domestic tasks and fixing things around the house.
At the same time, he’s a very good cook. No matter what, he will always center his entire life on his home and the people in it. It doesn’t matter how much he may hide it, what he needs the most too is to feel emotionally secure.
As a matter of fact, he’s terrified of losing the people he cares about. He’s also moody and may cry out because he can be very vulnerable when it comes to feelings. If hurt, he become neurotic and stressed, resulting in moments where no one can understand him anymore.
What’s great about him is that he’s elegant, interesting and has the best tastes. He lives according to his own doctrines and believes in the strongest life principles. As said before, he’s very moody, yet no one can change him from being gentle, king and giving.
Any rudeness is just a means for him to hide his weaknesses. As a matter of fact, he has a very hard exterior shell under which he keeps all his true feelings hidden.
On the inside, he’s the sweetest and softest man. It can be said about him that he thinks he’s superior. This is because he thinks no one but himself is right. When people are polite with him, he’s a gracious person, whereas when they’re rude, he turns into the cruelest person.
Those who want to earn his love and respect should be honest with him. He will always be devoted to the people he cares about. The most compatible signs with this character are Taurus, Pisces, Scorpio and Virgo.
His wife will always appreciate him for his loyalty and loving nature. However, she won’t feel free because he will want her to live like him. As soon as she’ll start doing this, she’ll begin to truly understand him and can be happy. At least she’s sure to never feel unloved.

The more their children get to grow, they need to keep in mind that they need to be allowed to do things on their own. The best they could do is teach them what they know.

The Cancer Sibling: Best in a Group Rather than Individually
While Cancers may have many relationships in their life, they’re sure to never lose the connection they have with their family and siblings.
It doesn’t matter how much their brothers and sisters annoy them, they will always say that they’re supposed to take it. This means they’re the type to stand by their family no matter what.
They need siblings because it’s important for them to always take care of someone. They’re the ones to go to their little brother or sister’s room and to calm him or her down after having a nightmare.
It doesn’t matter if they’re older or younger, they will always act like the older and more responsible ones, which means they can also be domineering. At the same time, their emotions run deep, so they take care of their siblings not only because it’s their duty, but also because they feel like doing it.
They love spoiling them, not to mention they can be counted on with any kind of problem. As said before, they’re the mothers of the Zodiac, so they play the role of protectors in their family. This can be overwhelming for their siblings, but everything should be fine because they don’t have a problem accepting that some people need to just be left alone.
When spending time with their brothers and sisters, they’re trying to have fun as much as possible. What they want their family to know is that they’re always going to be there for every relative.
