If you’re smarter than your Cancer friend, be smart enough not to let him know. Never give him the idea that you think he’s a little short on brainpower. It would send him scurrying back into his shell. And all that ground lost in the relationship will perhaps never be recovered.
The Crab is happiest at home. Once settled down for the night or the weekend, wild horses couldn’t drag him any farther than the gatepost—that is, unless those wild horses were dispatched by his mother. The Crab is sometimes a Momma’s boy. If his mate does not put her foot down, he will see to it that his mother always comes first. No self-respecting wife would ever allow herself to play second fiddle to her mother-in-law.
With a little tact, you can slip into the number-one position as easy as pie—that legendary pie his mother used to bake. If you pamper your Cancer man, you’ll find that “Mother” turns up increasingly less at the front door as well as in conversations.
