A woman who is born between 22nd June to 22nd July has Cancer as her horoscope sign. It is the fourth sign of zodiac calendar and is represented by a crab, from which the sun sign gets its characteristics. Just as the crab is tough on the outside and soft and mushy on the inside, women born under this sign may look tough to you, but people who know them closely will know how sensitive and loving they are at heart. This sign is ruled by the moon, which is also responsible for the characteristics and traits of women born under it. It is a known fact that these women have terrible mood swings which coincide with the waxing and waning of the moon. All these characteristics makes them friendly, but at the same time mysterious too. So, if you have a Cancer woman in your life, you ought to know some of her most important characteristics. You can read some more on characteristics of Cancer zodiac sign.
Friendly and Caring
A woman falling under this zodiac sign is attractive, with large and expressive eyes. When it comes to the characteristics, the best qualities that can define this zodiac sign is loving and friendly. People who are close to a woman with Cancer zodiac sign will surely understand when I say that she is a caring human being. She can go to any length to help her friends in trouble. A Cancer woman is quite motherly, and exudes this motherly nature not only towards her children, but also towards other people close to her. Listening skills and possessiveness are also some of the common traits of these women.
Emotional and Sensitive
Another characteristic is that she is extremely emotional and sensitive. Her decisions, thoughts, and actions always have an emotional basis to them. Though you may not realize this trait when you meet her for the first time, once you get to know her more closely you will definitely come to know about it. A woman under this sun sign cannot take criticism. Also, once a person has hurt her, she is likely to hold a grudge against him/her forever. Also, she has a good memory and even if you have said something without actually meaning it, she is likely to take it to heart and become touchy.
A woman born under this sign is extremely loyal and is dedicated to her partner once she is in the relationship. She can do anything to make her partner happy and can put his interests and desires in front of her own. However, when in a relationship, she yearns for love and attention. The perfect partner for her is the one who understands her emotional needs and showers her with love and care. Also, she is quite insecure and needs a partner who can provide her with the emotional support in a relationship. She can have a good relationship with men of the zodiac signs like Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Pisces, and Capricorn.
Moody and Intuitive
As I said earlier, these women are extremely moody. There are days when she would be right in the center of a group of friends laughing and having fun. However, there are also days when she will retreat into her shell and refuse to socialize. When she is in such a mood, not even close friends and family members will be able to approach her. It is actually quite difficult to guess what is going on in her mind. On the other hand, she is very intuitive and can read the minds of other people very easily. Hence, a Cancer woman can be called an agony aunt, as she can coax people to tell their problems and help them to find solutions.
Though a woman born under Cancer can be a little difficult to handle during one of her mood swings, you must remember that she is very loving and sensitive, and a little understanding can help you to win her and bring her back from her shell.
