A stimulating affair, for they arouse each other’s beneath-the-surface sensuality. Cancer isn’t too forceful, which suits Virgo fine.
And the little attentions won’t be neglected, which suits Virgo even better. Cancer is affectionate and sentimental and makes Virgo feel secure. This couple also likes money and domestic comfort, and Cancer’s dependency fits perfectly with Virgo’s protectiveness.
On the downside, both tend to be overcritical. On the upside, each draws the other out of its shell.

The man born under the sign of Cancer may very well be the man after your own heart. Generally, Cancers are steady people.
They are interested in security and practicality. Despite their seemingly grouchy exterior at times, men born under the sign of the Crab are sensitive and kind individuals.
Cancers are almost always hard workers and are very interested in making successes of themselves economically as well as socially. You’ll find that their conservative outlook on many things often agrees with yours.
They will be men on whom you can depend come rain or come shine. They will never shirk their responsibilities as providers. They will always see that their family never wants.
Your patience will come in handy if you decide it’s a Cancer you want for a mate. He isn’t the type that rushes headlong into romance. He wants to be sure about love as you do.
If, after the first couple of months of dating, he suggests that you take a walk with him down lovers’ lane, don’t jump to the conclusion that he’s about to make his great play. Chances are he’ll only hold your hand and seriously observe the stars.
Don’t let his coolness fool you, though. Beneath his starched reserve lies a very warm heart. He’s just not interested in showing off as far as affection is concerned.
Don’t think his interest is wandering if he doesn’t kiss you goodnight at the front door; that just isn’t his style.
For him, affection should only be displayed for two sets of eyes—yours and his. He’s passionate only in private, which is something Virgo can understand and appreciate.
He will never step out of line. He’s too much of a gentleman for that. When you’re alone with him and there’s no chance of being disturbed or spied upon, he’ll pull out an engagement ring (the one that belonged to his grandmother) and slip it on your trembling finger.
Speaking of relatives, you’ll have to get used to the fact that Cancer is overly fond of his mother. When he says his mother’s the most wonderful woman in the world, you’d better agree with him, that is, if you want to become his wife.
He’ll always be a faithful husband. A Cancer never pussyfoots around after he has taken that marriage vow. He doesn’t take marriage responsibilities lightly. He’ll see that everything in the house runs smoothly and that bills are paid promptly.
He’ll take out all kinds of insurance policies on his family and property. He’ll arrange it so that when retirement time rolls around, you’ll both be very well off.
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 toward independence. Still, the Cancer father doesn’t want to see his kids learning about life the hard way from the streets.

The Cancer woman needs to be protected from the cold, cruel world. She’ll love you for your masculine yet gentle manner; you make her feel safe and secure. You don’t have to pull any he-man or heroic stunts to win her heart; that’s not what interests her.
She’s more likely to be impressed by your sure, steady ways—that way you have of putting your arm around her and making her feel she’s the only girl in the world.
When she’s feeling glum and tears begin to well up in her eyes, you have that knack of saying just the right thing. You know how to calm her fears, no matter how silly some of them may seem.
The woman born under the sign ruled by the Moon is inclined to have her ups and downs. You have that talent for smoothing out the ruffles in her sea of life.
She’ll probably worship the ground you walk on or put you on a very high pedestal. Don’t disappoint her if you can help it. She’ll never disappoint you.
The Cancer woman will take great pleasure in devoting the rest of her natural life to you. She’ll darn your socks, mend your overalls, scrub floors, wash windows, shop, cook, and do just about anything in order to please you and let you know that she loves you.
Sounds like that legendary good old-fashioned girl, doesn’t it? Contrary to popular belief, there are still some around, and many of them are Cancers.
Of all the signs of the Zodiac, the Cancer-born are the most maternal. In caring for and bringing up children, Cancer women know just how to combine the right amount of tenderness with the proper dash of discipline.
A child couldn’t ask for a better mother. Cancer women are sympathetic, affectionate, and patient with their children.
While we’re on the subject of motherhood, there’s one thing you should be warned about: never be unkind to your mother-in-law. It will be the only golden rule your Cancer wife will probably expect you to follow. No mother-in-law jokes in the presence of your mate, please.
They’ll go over like a lead balloon. Mother is something pretty special for her. She may be the crankiest, nosiest old bat. But she’s your wife’s mother.
You’d better treat her like she’s one of the landed gentry. Sometimes this may be difficult to swallow. But if you want to keep your home together and your wife happy, learn to grin and bear it.
Treat your Cancer wife like a queen, and she’ll treat you royally.
