Cancer might eventually understand Libra’s romantic nature, but Cancer is too cautious to press indecisive Libra for the emotional response it needs. Disappointed at Libra’s shallowness, Cancer turns sharply critical, and those crab-claws cut deep.
Money-oriented Cancer is also annoyed by Libra’s extravagance. Libra loves the glittering social life; Cancer is happiest in the warmth of its own home.
Problems might be solved in time, but the wait usually isn’t worth it.
Libra Woman Cancer Man
Chances are you won’t hit it off too well with the man born under Cancer if your plans are love. But then, Cupid has been known to do some pretty unlikely things.
The Cancer man is very sensitive—thin-skinned and occasionally moody. You’ve got to keep on your toes—and not step on his—if you’re determined to make a go of the relationship.
The Cancer man may be lacking in some of the qualities you seek in a man. But when it comes to being faithful and being a good provider, he’s hard to beat.
The perceptive woman will not mistake the Crab’s quietness for sullenness or his thriftiness for penny-pinching.
In some respects, he is like that wise old owl out on a limb; he may look like he’s dozing but actually he hasn’t missed a thing.
Cancer people often possess a well of knowledge about human behavior. They can come across with some pretty helpful advice to those in trouble or in need.
He can certainly guide you in making investments both in time and money. He may not say much, but he’s always got his wits about him.
Cancer may not be the match or catch for the sociable Libra woman. At times, you are likely to find him downright dull.
True to his sign, he can be fairly cranky and crabby when handled the wrong way. He is perhaps more sensitive than he should be.
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 most himself at home. Once settled down for the night or the weekend, wild horses couldn’t drag him 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 bit of tact, however, she’ll find that slipping into that number-one position is as easy as pie (that legendary one his mother used to bake).
If you pamper your Cancer man, you’ll find that Mother turns up less and less, at the front door as well as in conversations.
Cancers make proud, patient, and protective fathers. But they can be a little too protective. Their sheltering instincts can interfere with a youngster’s natural inclination to test the waters outside the home.
Still, the Cancer father doesn’t want to see his kids learning about life the hard way from the streets.
Your qualities of grace and refinement, fairness and tolerance will help the youngsters cope with a variety of life situations.

If you fall in love with a Cancer woman, be prepared for anything. They are sometimes difficult to understand when it comes to love.
In one hour, she can unravel a whole gamut of emotions. Her moods will leave you in a tizzy. She’ll always keep you guessing, that’s for sure.
You may find her a little too uncertain and sensitive for your liking. You’ll most likely spend a good deal of time encouraging her, helping her to erase her foolish fears.
Tell her she’s a living doll a dozen times a day, and you’ll be well loved in return.
Be careful of the jokes you make when in her company. Don’t let any of them revolve around her, her personal interests, or her family.
If you do, you’ll most likely reduce her to tears. She can’t stand being made fun of.
It will take bushels of roses and tons of chocolates—not to mention the apologies—to get her to come back out of her shell.
In matters of money managing, she may not easily come around to your way of thinking.
Money will never burn a hole in her pocket. You may get the notion that your Cancer sweetheart or mate is a direct descendant of Scrooge.
If she has her way, she’ll hang onto the first dollar you earned. She’s not only that way with money, but with everything right on up from bakery string to jelly jars.
She’s a saver. She never throws anything away, no matter how trivial.
Once she returns your love, you’ll have an affectionate, self-sacrificing, and devoted woman for keeps. Her love for you will never alter unless you want it to.
She’ll put you up on a high pedestal and will do everything—even if it’s against your will—to keep you there.
Cancer women love home life. For them, marriage is an easy step to make. They’re domestic with a capital D. She’ll do her best to make your home comfortable and cozy.
The Cancer woman is more herself at home than in strange surroundings. She makes an excellent hostess. The best in her comes out when she’s in her own environment.
Cancer women are reputed to be the best mothers of all the signs of the Zodiac. She’ll make every complaint of her child a major catastrophe. With her, children come first.
If you’re lucky, you’ll run a close second. You’ll perhaps see her as too devoted to the children. You may have a hard time convincing her that her apron strings are too long.
