The Zodiac sign Cancer is a Water sign, but what is Cancer’s personality like? What are Cancers’ good, positive personality traits, and their compatibility with other zodiac signs? Like I mentioned here, my dad used to analyze and “draw” horoscopes. I’ve been raised in a home full of books in astrology. In addition to studying psychology and being a hypnotherapist (=hypnosis + therapeutic methods), I’ve also started “drawing” horoscopes! But not like you’d imagine perhaps. 🙂  I know how the great power of mind and positive anchors really work for us in practice, and so I’ve designed colorful, positive real-life anchors for each zodiac sign. Also for the interesting Cancer, of course! 🙂  In this article I give you a good list of the horoscope sign Cancer’s positive personality traits. I also tell you which good, attractive traits of Cancer fit well with other horoscope signs.

And I’ll also share you my best tips about how you can remind yourself of all the best, the most positive “Cancerian traits” of yourself or your loved one! 

After all, focus on the positives is the key to success in love and life in general. 

Sometimes during the hard times in life it’s not that easy, but with my tips you’ll manage better, I’m sure! 🙂

  • What is the “Cancer personality”?

  • Who is Cancer attracted to?
  • What horoscope sign is Cancer’s soulmate?
  • Who should marry a Cancer man? Or a Cancer woman?

What is the Cancer personality? What are Cancers commonly known for?

First, I want you to understand why I speak only about the positive, attractive personality traits of Cancer. I don’t want you to anchor your subconscious mind with any potentially negative traits of your horoscope sign Cancer.

According to scientific research in psychology, all personality traits can and sometimes do change during the life. You can develop yourself throughout your entire life.

The most important thing to remember is that if you believe you’d be something “bad”, you might focus on that negative trait or even avoid situations where you could learn to behave otherwise.

All personality traits are the ways you behave in practice, in real life. As you already know, you can behave in many different ways in many situations. That’s also why some of your friends may think you’re a totally different person that what your parents, colleagues, or your “enemies” might think of you.

The way you think about yourself is your own super power which may either strengthen or weaken you. That’s why I don’t provide you any list of the negative personality traits or weaknesses of Cancer – nor any other astrological, zodiac sign neither 🙂

So, like I told you in this longer article about horoscopes and my life with my “horoscope analyst” father, I do believe in magic in our beautiful universe, and most definitely I do know how our magical minds work for or against us! 🙂 And that’s why I’ve listed here only the generally positive traits of Cancer, the horoscope sign you’re now interested in.

You can see the list of Cancer’s best, the most attractive traits below. 🙂

Who is Cancer attracted to? What horoscope sign is Cancer’s soulmate? Who should marry a Cancer man or a Cancer woman?

Which zodiac signs are Cancers more easily attracted to? And who should a Cancer woman or man marry? Could you consider a Cancer as your soul mate or your married partner?

If you’re Cancer yourself or you’re interested in dating or planning to marry a Cancer woman or man, please keep you mind and eyes always open for love. Do not predict your own future just based on this list of those traits that are usually thought to be the special “Cancer personality traits”. Much more important than this list of Cancer’s positive traits, is your own feeling of yourself and the person you’re interested in.

The best match for Cancer can actually be another Cancer or any other zodiac sign! We all have our individual needs and wishes even if we shared the same zodiac sign.

Do you want to know which zodiac signs are most likely to be Cancer’s soulmate?

You know we all can have many soulmates all over the world, in all horoscopes signs. 

You can have a great Cancer (or other!) soulmate both as a friend and as your married partner, and they both can have different zodiac signs.



Please keep you eyes and heart open to all forms of love. Don’t search for a lasting relationship or a good marriage just based on your own horoscope sign.

You can find inspiration for happy love life in the many blog posts about happy single life & dating, and good, lasting relationships.

How about breaking up, separating or divorcing a Cancerian spouse?

If you’re thinking about e.g. breaking up, separating or divorcing your Cancerian spouse, always believe only in your our thoughts and feelings even if any horoscope said your astrological sign would be a perfect partner with a Cancer man/woman. Build your trust in your own intuition – it will guide you further.

Ok? Good! Then, let’s start with the positive personality traits of the star sign Cancer! 🙂

A good list of the zodiac sign Cancer’s most attractive, positive traits

The zodiac sign Cancer is often said to have e.g. the following positive “Cancer personality” traits:

  • Cancer is naturally emotional, sensitive and passionate.
  • Cancer has emotional intelligence and the ability to detect emotional changes in others. Cancers want to understand human nature.
  • Cancer is nurturing, helpful and protective with a good parental instinct. Cancer does whatever it takes to make its loved ones feel good.
  • Cancers are caring and generous to their partners. They have a strong ability to empathize with others, and they nurture themselves, too. Caring and self-care are Cancer traits!
  • Cancer is mindful of others’ feelings and they are interested in others’ life events. They remember your birthday and favorite foods, and ask how you feel after your dog passed away.
  • Cancers cherish family and they enjoy being at home with their loved ones. They make their homes beautiful and welcoming.
  • Cancers also are good friends who know how to have some fun. They are lively, adventurous and magical friends! Cancers are rarely dull!
  • Cancers are highly intuitive and insightful. With a cancer, you can deep dive into emotional depths easily.
  • Cancers are imaginative and creative daydreamers.
  • Cancer can make decisions quickly based on intuition. They are clever.
  • Cancer prefers intimate, deeper connections. They are devoted, loyal friends and partners. They commit to you for life.

All in all, Cancers are innately charming, attractive and interesting! Do you agree? 🙂

How can you remind yourself about the good Cancerian traits and focus on all these positive aspects?

Even if you’re not a Cancer with a strong belief in yourself in all circumstances, you still do have a strong mind. We tend to live our lives following the needs and hopes of our subconscious mind 95% of the time. This means we may lose our focus very easily (conscious focus only 5%).

To remind yourself on focusing on all your naturally positive personality traits even through the hard times, you shall aim to decrease the power of your subconscious autopilot, and let yourself notice the good in life more easily day after day.

You can do it with good mindset routines and positive mind anchors. They help you focus on your goals and the positive outlook.

Below, I’ll tell you how these mind anchors work in practice! 🙂

The energetic, inspiring, positive mindset anchor designs for intuitive, caring Cancers!

If you have read my blog posts for a longer time already, you know why all (R)evolution for Love designs are so colorful! Yes, you can create a strong mind anchor for each color, like you can create anchors to the symbol of Cancer, too 🙂

Simply just listen to your intuition which tells you which colors in these inspiring designs remind you of those naturally positive Cancerian traits you have. (Focus is the key, as you know, and this shirt will keep you focused on the positive within you.)

And then, every time you see that color, you’ll start smiling as you remember what a beautiful person you are!

The more you surround yourself with these practical daily reminders and appreciate each moment you notice their good message to you, you build your inner connection stronger each day. When you bring your focus to the Cancer symbol and its unique colors, and then remind yourself what they symbolize to you, you teach your brain to remember those best traits quicker, more automatically each time. This way you learn better subconscious autopilots that help you navigate towards your dreams in life!

That’s how our brain cells (neurons) build bridges (synapses) with each other to create new good mindset routines for us. 🙂 And the way you use your brain, is the way you guide yourself in love and life in general.

Start believing in yourself more by renewing your mindset routines that will remind yourself of your best personality traits – such as those “Cancerian traits”.

Yes, exactly: that’s the beauty of our brains: we can teach ourselves to achieve our dreams more easily that way!

That is how also others around you start seeing more and more of all that positivity in you! The inner growth starts within. Just help your own journey with these practical mindset tools that I created for you with love.
