What Are Some Brief Cancer Traits?
Cancers make great caregivers. They build bond quickly with people they like and make friends easily. When they’ve built trust for someone, the Cancer will go above and beyond to make sure their friend feels comfortable and secure (if the Cancer can help it). It’s not so many people pleasing as it is making sure a select group of people feel cared for.
Cancers love building nests and settling their roots in one area. Establishing themselves allow a Cancer to create deeper emotional bonds with someone and get to know them better. Whether it be coworkers, friends, or family, Cancers enjoy thinking life is about the relationships they foster with others.
While Cancers know they’re an endless well of love for people (no matter how many walls they put up), Cancers are prone to getting moody sometimes. They’re sensitive spirits who feel the world too strongly. Positive and negative events cut a Cancer deeper than it does other signs.
And yet, a Cancer is still a compassionate and nurturing individual, prone to nostalgia and sentimentalism. It’s hard for a Cancer to throw things away because of great importance a Cancer places on seemingly small, useless items. Their houses are full, but they keep their homes more filled with love, which is apparent when you step into a Cancer’s living space.
Cancers are prone to feeling underappreciated since they tend to over-exert themselves for other people, whereas other people don’t think to return the same energy. When a Cancer feels such hurt, they can isolate themselves and become uncommunicative. It takes either time or a gentle, enriching conversation with a Cancer to pull them out of their shell.
While Cancers sometimes make you feel like you’re walking on eggshells, they more than make up for it for their warmth and kindness.
Key Traits of the Libra Woman
Imagine someone who’s got great fashion sense, highly romantic, extremely romantic, and a little indulgent. The person you’re imagining is a Libra.
Libras have the Scale symbol, signifying the Libra’s need for balance and order. They tend to get along with others very well but are still prone to moodiness, stubbornness, and the inability to make a decision.
Libras long for companionship. They have strong personalities but operate the best when they have another person to complete their energy. Libras are sensitive to the injustices in the world and fight for fairness, but they start projects much more than they finish them.
Libras are an air sign for a reason — they keep their head in the clouds. They come up with wild ideas and imaginations that rarely reach fruition, but they’ll entertain an interesting idea anyway. Libras love bouncing ideas off another person too, as Libras work best in a complementary relationship.
Aside from having a strong sense of justice, Libras have a knack for leadership. They put their wit and intelligence to the test when told to lead a group of people. Because of their diplomacy, they’re excellent communicators too. No matter what, Libras enjoy equilibrium and will work to incorporate balance in their work, life, and relationships.
Not all Libra traits are positive, though. Libras like to indulge their guilty pleasures a bit more than they’d like to admit. They can take forever to make a decision and just straight up not decide due to laziness. Their need for a complementary relationship can also make them co-dependent on another person and putting other people’s wellbeing before their own.
While Libras can be a bit annoying to be around sometimes, they’ll eventually win you back with their wit, charm, and innate goodness.
Can a Cancer Man and Libra Woman Trust Each Other?
Cancers are often bad liars. They tend to be so sincere in their emotions that they find to cover up how they’re feeling. A Libra woman can tell if a Cancer man has an issue, it’s just whether the Cancer man will talk about it that’s the issue.
Libra women handle people’s feelings well. Libras can read people well, so they know how to handle someone when they’re feeling upset or angry. Though Cancers stay in their shell until they feel comfortable climbing back out, a Libra who understands the Cancer man can coax him out of his hiding.
Because the two will know how to speak to and understand each other, trust will naturally form between a Cancer man and Libra woman. Cancers can intuit who they can trust freely and will deem the Libra woman a worthy option. The Libra woman, opposed to injustice, will treat the Cancer man’s emotions fairly.
Friendship Between the Cancer Man and Libra Woman
Yes, and they’ll make great friends. A Cancer man is goofy and cute in how emotional he can be. A Libra woman will find his openness charming. A Cancer man will love talking to a Libra woman since she’ll be full of wise stories or crazy ideas. The two will find themselves spending hours falling down rabbit holes of wild ideas they’ve made up.
A Cancer man and Libra woman will gravitate towards each other’s personalities. A Cancer man knows he can be hurt easily and will know that’s the last thing a Libra wants to do. A Libra woman will like how pure his soul is and how he only wants to take care of people.
A Cancer man gets protective over his friends, which will include the Libra woman. She’ll like knowing she has a guardian friend who will stick up for her when needed, and the Cancer man will like how he has someone he can feel protective over.
A friendship between a Cancer man and Libra woman will form freely and openly. They’ll get along so well that their platonic relationship might turn into something more.
Can a Cancer Man and Libra Woman Fall in Love?
As with friendship, Cancer men and Libra women are capable of romance. Love is a Cancer man’s specialty. He can figure out cute ways to ask her out on dates, express his emotion for her, and make her feel loved. The Cancer man is a hugger, not a fighter, so even when he’s in his bad moods, he’ll be able to cheer up for a Libra woman.
Libra women will be smitten with the Cancer man’s romantic ways. She’ll want to match his enthusiasm for her with recitations of her love for him. The Cancer man may feel uncomfortable getting love since he’s so used to simply giving it, but he can make an exception for a Libra woman.
Neither a Cancer man and Libra woman are likely to cheat, so the only threat to a relationship are internal ones. Cancers and Libras hate the idea of hurting another human, so it would take extreme circumstances to drive either to infidelity.
After forming a strong emotional bond, facilitated with trust, the Cancer man and Libra woman will express their attraction for each other through sex. The act isn’t frivolous for either person and will instead be a testament to the work they’ve put into their relationship.
What Are Problem Areas in a Cancer Man and Libra Woman Relationship?
While Cancer men are generally good at communication, unevolved Cancers can strain a relationship by shutting down. When he feels hurt but doesn’t feel comfortable enough to talk about it, he would rather let issues pile up until he doesn’t want to be in a relationship. It’s easier for him to walk away than to be vulnerable and talk about what’s hurting him.
A Cancer’s unresponsiveness will drive the diplomatic Libra woman crazy. She hates feeling out of balance, and the Cancer man withholding information from her causes the energy in the relationship to go down. She’ll have no means to right it unless she makes him open up, which could cause further tension in the relationship.
Though a Libra woman isn’t one to feel extreme emotion, the Cancer man shutting down could cause her to get so extremely angry that she said harsh words to hurt him. The Cancer man could respond with harsh words too, throwing the relationship more out of balance and requiring more energy to right it.
Communication issues between a Libra woman and Cancer man will be the biggest issue in a relationship. Other issues include the Cancer man alternatively clinging too hard to a Libra woman rather than pulling away. Again, Libra women like balance and enjoy their healthy share of independence. A constantly needy Cancer will disrupt the Libras equilibrium and exhaust her.
Can a Cancer Man and Libra Woman Find Longevity Together?
Any issue can be solved with patience and a good, open conversation. Since the Cancer man and Libra woman are both lovers, not fighters, they’ll naturally gravitate towards problem-solving behaviors rather than problem-causing ones.
If they’ve both matured as people, embraced the positive traits of their signs, and mitigated the harshness of their negative traits, a Cancer man and Libra woman can find themselves in a long-lasting, loving relationship.
