Dating The Zodiac: Cancer

Cancer and dating

Once i worked for – not dated – a Cancerian who was a doctor and the maddest modelizer/womanizer you’ve ever heard of. But it wasn’t some cynical pick-up artist thing – god no.

Dr. Crab fell in love – or felt he did – every time. He could go from being like a wilted flower. Drooping down with the hassle of all his legal fees and pay-outs (several ex-wives, none particular impressed with his efforts at surprise polygamy). Into something more like an exotic orchid, witty and glowing with cosmic zeal. Merely at the sight of a beautiful girl-woman who could be It.

There were dramas. There was male Love Zombie yearning and quoting of Rumi. Plus, there were midnight punch ups involving him and men. Dr. Crab would dismiss irritatedly as “the husband – he doesn’t understand her – she is a magical instrument in the hands of a barbarian.

He liked Evian water, money ( obsessively counting whatever currency was in his wallet) and watches that the SAS would wear should they need to call in an airstrike. He never believed in the moon landing and preferred to think of Luna as a literal magical place or even a goddess. True.

‘My cancer boyfriend (my now most recent ex) and I dated for two years, and it was an INSANE relationship. Smoldering sexy, musically brilliant, EXTREMELY emotionally abusive but so manipulative that I couldn’t see it until it was too late,’ Archerette reports.

But what about the time The Leo Socialite dated a Cancer?

‘Once i dated a Cancerian who slept with all my friends and then called me “selfish” and even “ignoble” when i objected. I thought at the time he might want to have a different lady friend for each moon sign because he had about 12 of us on rotation. My Scorpio friend thinks he’s gay but that having a lot of women action is the best “beard.”’

Have you any of you date/mated a Crab person?

My first love was a crab! Fell in love with how emotionally deep and understanding he was. But he must’ve had Sagg in his chart because he would blurt out things (once called me fat!) that weren’t very nice. Could have been his protective shell also.
We broke up but stayed friends for a little while. One time I snooped through his phone (taboo but I was curious) and saw his texts to his mom calling her “mommy” and weirdly childish is his way of talking to her. He was 28. Creeped me out.

I’m actually married to a Kataka. He is very intense emotionally. I’m a Virgo and tend to keep the reins on my emotions and keep the ups and downs to a minimum if it at all possible, whereas he has pretty large swings one way or the other. He loves something or he loathes it. It works out alright for us because he helps me break out of my overly self-controlledness, and I help anchor him. Otherwise, very, very loyal. He has an inner circle that is nearly impossible to get on, but once you’re on, you are there for… Read more »

had a one night stand with a crab musician that’s playing on radio stations right here in the isa to this day. no names though…. and it wash’t really a one night stand because we kept in contact after, in a indirect way. god the sex was so goodn& the best i ever had but i refuse to be with him after he lied about the many children he had.

Ah yes, more reports on low vibe crabs—grist for the mill of self-reflection as a Kataka. Re: falling in love quickly—although I am serial monogamist and tend to date someone for a couple of years at a time, I do fall into the relationship so quickly and hard, I’m practically living with someone after the first date. This is fun at the time (so wrapped up in appreciating the newness and interestingness of the other person, plus awesome sex), but later I inevitably think it was way too fast and I should have held back. Thing is, I never think… Read more »

Rebound relationship with a young Kataka who was difficult, insane, devoted, creative, sensitive, psychotic, tender etc. but mainly I remember having sex for 3 days in a row only stopping for food & a little sleep.
No recreational anything involved. My Mars on his Lilith.

Me-Saggo with many friendly exes still in my life, it drove his jealousy CRAZY and made me feel trapped to all hell. Screaming matches, wall punching… I am a gentle soul, most definitely NOT a person who screams and shouts all around but so help me god…

Interesting the posts on Libra/Leo and Kataka combo. Im in a similar relationship but he has cancer rising and venus in Cancer. He is very influenced by the moon and women and thankfully has a lovely mum and sister. We always hang out when the full moon is on and get a nice moon tan. Moody yes so thats time to give him space. he has relaxed with me over the years after being cheated on by many ex’s and he has learnt to trust me which has also taken years. I’ve just stayed true to him accepting his moods… Read more »

You do sound very fragile, I hope you don’t mind me suggesting you think about dealing with your tears during sex. Perhaps a good kinaesiologist, flower essences etc? I have had two bf’s who carried much shame & distress after relationships with girls who cried during sex. Good luck moon child!

Strangely, I have attracted a lot of Cancer men over the years. Despite the attraction, though, it never ends well. I find their brand of love clammy, moist and suffocating. Entirely too yin for my fire. Also, I require a lot of s p a c e, and this offends them. My longest friendship from childhood was with a Cancer. It took me 22 years to realize that she was mean and manipulative, two things totally foreign to my temperament. The problem was that we fell into that classic Cancer/Aries dynamic, Mother and Child. I was the guileless, flighty, irresponsible… Read more »

He first started appearing in my dreams while I was still with an Icey Virgo who I would eventually leave commencing the break up from hell. kataka and I met at the park. Our dogs had an affinity for eachother, so much so that my dog could smell his before they were in sight and would freak out whenever we saw eachother. Instant chemistry – not just the dogs lol.

It was doomed from the start with synastry and distance and the rest but oh how hard we both fell anyway. Totally selfish, prone to crying, drinking too much, deffo Mama issues, sad sloping eyes, amazingness in bed, total classic Cancer in all the ways. Moon and Rising in Scorpio, just didn’t get each other in the end despite the love. I dated one for 8 years… Read more »

He is still very much a treasured part of my life and is a quality human being. He kind and generous to a fault, has a highly successful career but is extremely humble, maintains a childlike enthusiasm for life and is highly principled.

I’m Leo (Virg-cusp) woman dating a Cancer man, for about a year now. My Cancer moon and Cap rising helps me out a lot, I think. He’s so so slow, he’s more like a snail than a crab. I suspect he’s saving “I love you” until marriage, ha! He’s so so so typically Cancerian in so so many ways, I can’t even grasp it fully. The sex is wonderful, his giant eyes drive me insane, ahh! He is not well with words, he tends to admit feelings and show vulnerability only when very drunk, but I am patient. Geez, I’m… Read more »

I’ve put him on a high pedestal (so Leonine of me, I know) and simply adore him but I do wish he would verbally affirm me more. However, I am learning to speak the language of eye contact. It’s entirely new for me!

Sounds lovely. So romantic, if maddening! And it sounds like you really DO understand his language 🙂 Having that Cancer moon and mama will def help. I’m Libra w a Cancerian mama and I do have a ‘thing’ for Cancerian men. I just feel so nurtured and seen and, well, placed on a pedestal too. Yummm. Loving like no other!

Just recently ended things with a french cancer. I don’t think he represents the typical cancer…he had a lot of fire in his chart (Leo rising, Aries moon). VERY charming and charismatic individual. He was a hairdresser and also a womanizer (he certainly womanized me). I never really experienced his moods (I think he stayed away when he was going through them…or he was with another girl). AMAZING in bed…best I ever had but he gave a lot of mixed signals. One minute he would go on about how he doesn’t want a relationship/commitment–the next minute he would tell me… Read more »

Lol! Sprung! What French men have in common with their cars are their good looks. They look so sexy, (I mean who can resist a citroen ds cabriolet?) and so playful (2cv); and i’ve already mentioned the charms of the renault 4. But as far as performance goes, I wouldn’t know – i’ve only driven the cars. The citroen ds was seductive as hell and gave a smooth ride – tho it was highly strung, but the other two could handle rough treatment even off road.
I better stop now.

Was actually a bit embarrassed at first (not really into big exec cars) – but soon got used to the preferential treatment from smaller cars.

I’m fine with taking time, but its been hard to tell if he’s interested or not. I wrote in to Mystic about dating a Taurus and while the majority of the advice was he wasn’t worth the time past Mars in Scorpio, it really helped to hear other Taurus peeps saying they take their time and other Taurus lovers saying they experienced the same feeling of “are you into me or not?” at early days. These astro dating articles are a good public service!

Spent the last 15 years with crabs, plus raised by one. Happy to be free of them! They are selfish, moody fuqers, though they think they’re the most acting people in the world. And perhaps this is true… but you’ve gotta appreciate them. Over the top appreciation. If they’re not being fawned over, they’re creating drama to get attention. Unconscious qi vamps. Don’t criticize them in the first 6 months of a relationship, or they will disappear. And reappear a month later. Actually don’t criticize them ever.

I can understand why you as a Libra/Leo combo would do well with a crab … I think I would get along with one as long as they were fairly well grounded and had a healthy self esteem. Being a Sun/Venus crab I do love to spoil the object of my affection – they are pretty much the only one’s that get to see this lavishly affectionate side of me – and a healthy Libra/Leo does enjoy being spoiled.

We bonded over art, food, comforts, intellectual talk, especially philosophy, and travel—we moved to Japan together to teach English. He did have the “lawyering” bit, had already formed opinions on most things in life and it was reaaaaallly hard to get him to budge on those, but I totally got this vibe as I have Mars and a bunch of other planets in Libra.

Yes I think Kataka and Libra can go together very well—Libra wants a partner, and the crab is so willing to be that. I would date another good-hearted Libra in a heartbeat. And that calm and cool side of Libra can teach Kataka to let go and relax…if the crab is willing to work on the moods (they can feel weirdly good in a self-destructive kind of way…so not all Katakas perhaps want to give up their moods.)

Very into his family (had 5 kids and 2 ex wives). However … he was rich as hell, total womanizer, very much into having arm candy about 15 years younger than him.

My moon’s in the 4th so they like me. I’ve seriously dated three of them. One of those relationships eventually became abusive. They have their good sides but I’m never going back again.

The Cancers I know think that feelings (theirs, mostly) excuse behavior. I do not agree, and once that attitude becomes apparent I pretty much close my legs. Let’s call it an aversion. Or, you know, PTSD.

I’ve dated a Kataka/Aries rising for six months. Both Pluto in Scorp too.
Most epic mood swings I have ever witnessed from man or beast. Shoots off from the mouth, charges about and reacts like an Aries… with the unpredictability of the scuttly crab. Always turns out to be some extreme repressed fear. Secretly scared of most things.
Divine with children, SUCH a homebody, barely drinks (not even water)… confused Crab methinks?

My sister’s a Kataka, and your reference to ‘epic mood swings’ has to be the one major theme in what I’ve heard consistently from all her past boyfriends and now from her husband (they’ve been together for well over 10 years, so it can’t be too bad). Seriously, I’m the one with the stellium in Aries, and she’s the unpredictable one with the most irrational temper in the world – so, yeah, I’d say unpredictability is probably that of the scuttly crab rather than the ram (Aries has a temper too, but it’s more directed and competitive; it almost always… Read more »

Kataka- Unpredictable in the sense of – there’s no telling what will bounce off the shell no worries, what will have him evading neatly sideways or disappearing into stony hermitism, and what will have him raging claws out! The Aries manifests more in determination, innovativeness, and tantrums that blow over as soon as they started. I’m a Cap/ Taurus Rising so I was always more of a slow burner. Some of the specific dislikes or triggers include- full length mirrors, appetisers, being called big, being called slim, not taking a joke, taking a joke too much, planning holidays (too much… Read more »

I have had two long term relationships with Cancerian men. Both cried a lot. One lost it at the end of Thelma and Louise, and the other often in restaurants or in public about lost loves and the well spring of pain that often came up after possibly too many drinks. Incidentally, both drank excessively, so I’ve come to be very wary of the water sign/Cancer sunsters or blokes with personal planets in them.

Mine cried excessively too! And drank to excess! One day while making breakfast (sober)!he started crying at a John Lennon song playing because John ‘didn’t get to live his life’ or something like that..
I was appalled. But god was the sex mind blowing..he would read stories to me afterwards…

D’accord! Good sex but the crying … just wore me out. The excessive drinking more so. Ironically sad on that account.

Well was sort of dating a cancer man for the last 5 months and im still recovering.. not sure what happened he is Leo moon,Gemini mars and Venus, plus a fire snake.. So probably didn’t stand a chance, but goodness what a ride. Can anyone tell me how to catch one and keep them? He said after chasing me for 3 months that he was still in love with his x and needed time. He still randomly texts and the last date (4weeks ago.) he spent a lot of money on but then said afterwards he wasn’t ready to be… Read more »

He is doing everything shit except outright asking you to dump him . Pas agg breakup technique lol. Do yourself a favour and bin him. Why torture yourself? For serious.

He will probably then complain about you and how you behaved so insensitively. Good. (Riddance) 😉

agree with Pi – why would you want to be with someone who’s still in love with his ex???

My experience was what you describe..it certainly was magical..it lasted a year..and then he dumped me for a previous romantic interest..my friends hate him…and I am moving on…but can’t help but wonder? His wordy letter trying to explain his actions was laughable…and meant to keep me as an option..and I never responded…but still wonder sometimes? If anyone will ever compare with our Cancer/Scorpio lovemaking? He is a Mars in Pisces and I am a Mars in Libra….will I ever get over him?

I’m a Scorp too, and yes, the sex was phenomenal, never to be repeated. Anyway, I’ve waxed plenty lyrical about that here before. But yeah, difficult maternal relationship, so I had to cut my losses *sigh*

Don’t say that! ): it can’t be..,not even with a Picses? Shouldn’t that be better? (: the a Cancer in question had no issues that I know of with parents (deceased) but his divorce from a double Sag did him in…and he is dominated by a borderline Capricorn daughter….notwithstanding such baggage…the memory remains. Oh yes he did tell me after a night of drinking heavily that he was not emotionally available! Duh.

lol, ah, sorry. emotionally unavailability, perhaps that’s the key ingredient!…I’ll try a Pisces on and get back to ya 😉

Me too! Let’s compare notes! Seriously, a Pisces has expressed interest in me. But he has a Libra Moon. Sigh. That could be very bad. On the other hand Mars is in Cancer.

OK, although given my current circs coming up with a man, let alone of a particular sign, might take a while. In any case, I’ll put it out there 🙂

Mars in Cancer? 😯 worst Cancer placement for a man I would say….yep, I definitely want a report on that!

I know..that’s why Mars in Pisces was the best for me..A scorpio sun with Mars in libra….and I think Mars in Aquarius was the worst for me..ugh. Worse than Mars in Virgo…

i can confirm Mars in Cancer not an ideal placement.
Passive aggressive BS!!

Met someone recently – a Leo – with amazing synastry and then I got to the Mars in Cancer part. 😯 So disappointed. No thanks!!!

And sure enough I’m getting the silent treatment. Doesn’t even have the balls to speak up.

Um, I know the stereotype is that they’re breast men but working from my sample of two, I wonder does anyone else think that of all the signs Katakan men demonstrate the most dedicated practical worship of our maps of Tassie?

Yes. Got sucked in by brown googoo eyes at a gig at The Zoo in Brisbane. Year and a half in he didn’t end up coming over one afternoon and I got some convoluted story about him leaving his wallet on the bus after work and having to make calls and collect it etc… The next day, his friend asked me how he was after being stung by that bee? Seemed he’d made multiple stories for the previous day – the bee was his excuse for not going to work in the first place. And when interrogated he said He… Read more »

My college BF Kataka- became a banker- bought a boat- very devoted dad and mate. Always GREAT at math!!!! Used to solve calculus problems in his sleep! LOL!! Mega loyal, kind. But no wandering eye.Très spoiled by sisters and mum. Idealizes and protects women. Has great bemusement. Awesome watches- check. Husband is Kataka Venus- 4th. Gourmet chef, wine lover/collector/hoarder. Ditto watches and all cooking implements. Low Kataka: too much mismatched Tupperware!!! High Kataka: perfectly seasoned cast iron!! Another ex is Gem/Kataka rising. Also a doc, loyal beyond, great mate and dad. Zero wandering eye. Takes kids to concerts. And dauntlessly… Read more »
