14 Reasons Why Cancerians Are The Most Amazing People Ever 16
If you have the opportunity to have a Cancerian in your life, you are SO freakin’ lucky. People having Cancer zodiac may be known as the over-thinking and the sensitive, family-oriented sign, but the one reason why Cancers make such awesome people is because they are the most caring people of all. Here are 14 reasons that prove they are!
Reason #1: They can read your mind. No, really.
Cancers are deeply intuitive and if something is bothering you, chances are your Cancer knows about it before you can bring it up. The Cancers are lead by their instincts and they take the right decisions at an opportune time. They are so intuitive that they can easily read the mind of other people.
Reason #2: They empathize. They will listen to whatever you have to say.
Cancers are highly sensitive people and compassionate listeners. They will try to get into your shoes and see the problem from your point of view. They are very kind and are the first ones to offer a helping hand. If you are having a problem with a relationship, need to vent about a difficult day at work or making a challenging decision in your life, a Cancer will be patient and attentive. Their empathy makes them great friends, lovers and confidants. They are honest and caring, and they usually give off an aura that makes you feel more comfortable opening up to them.
Reason #3: They can fix things easily.
Cancers will offer quick solutions to your problems. They will find a way even if the path looks dark and unclear. Cancerians have a knack of coming up with prompt solutions and are usually problem fixers. They're neither too mechanical nor too emotional. They know when to listen to their heart and when to listen to their brain. A Cancerian will not only give the most practical solution to your problem, but will also solve most of it for you.
Reason #4: They have a great sense of humor.
Cancers have an amazing sense of humor, due to which they are always surrounded by friends all the time. They also have the ability to laugh at themselves when they're wrong, which they rarely are. They don't mind being the butt of a good, smart joke for the sake of real fun, and they're willing to look foolish to get a laugh. If you like clever, thoughtful humor, hang out with a Cancerian. With their impeccable sense of humor, they'll make sure your life is all giggles and laughter.
Reason #5: Cancers tell you what they REALLY think. No holds barred.
A Cancerian is NOT afraid to tell you exactly what he/she think. The Cancerian has got a lot of opinions and you better believe that they are going to share them with with the world. They’re the kinds of people that will tell you exactly what is on their mind without any kind of filter… even if it’s not pretty. Whether or not you want to hear it, if you NEED to hear it, a Cancerian will say it.
Reason #6: Cancers are very resilient. They’re intensely determined when they know what they want out of life (something you can ALWAYS learn from).
Tenacity is Cancer's middle name and when they want something out of life, they go after it, no questions asked. That's why they are such important people to know; they are role models AND best friends all rolled into a cute little package.
Cancers are very strong and independent.
Cancers might have a reputation for being a bit on the sensitive side but you shouldn’t mistake that for thinking that they are weak. In fact they are incredibly resilient and they’re more than capable of rolling with the punches no matter what life throws their way. In relationships, Cancers are more willing to work through problems instead of giving up.
Reason #7: Cancers are smarter than the average bear. You can always have a crazy ride with a Cancerian.
Cancers are well informed and possess innate cunning, and just like the crab they are very calculating. They are very smart and have extremely good memory. They do their research on topics that interest them, and they're able to store information in their heads as if they have the Internet in their brains. This also means a Cancerian is usually the smartest person in the room.
They will bring out your creative side.
Best categorized as extroverted introverts, Cancers are very creative people and thrive when they share their art - writing, drawing, music - with others. A Cancerian will take great pleasure in expressing his or herself creatively, and will push others to explore their creative sides, too.
They’re up for just about anything.
Cancers have a very imaginative mind and they love expressing their imagination through art and other creative outlets. A Cancer will probably persuade you to try something new with her... Chances are good that she's already planned it out (she just wants someone to share the experience with). Having a creative Cancer as your best friend means expanding your mind and learning something new about yourself. They’re all about getting their friends to look at life differently.
Reason #8: Cancerian is a supportive and encouraging companion.
When one of their friends or loved ones has problems the Cancer often picks up on it instinctively before a word is even said about it… and they will then go out of their way to make sure they are okay. They always know exactly what to say to make someone feel better and are great at giving advice that is actually helpful. Cancers hold all their intimate relationships close to heart, which makes them very dependable regardless of what situation they encounter. Cancers will support you unconditionally despite of whether you are right or wrong.
Reason #9: They will keep you from making bad decisions.
While Cancers love to explore and be adventurous, they are also extremely rational and thoughtful when it comes to their decisions. Cancers will be game for anything, but they will draw the line when a situation is potentially harmful or can have repercussions in the future. Keeping a Cancer around is a great way to avoid those horrible “I really shouldn't have done that” moments, which seem to crop up on sunny summer weekends.
Reason #10: They are incredibly loyal… to a fault.
Cancers are extremely loyal and caring to the individuals that matter most in their lives such as their immediate family and intimate friends. They respect the will of their loved ones, and go out of their way to express their love and fondness towards them. Cancers make for some of the most faithful lovers in existence, and you can rely on them through thick and thin.
Reason #11: Cancer has a sixth sense for detecting bullshit and can sniff you out if you’re being ‘fake’.
Cancer has a powerful ability to sniff out bullshit, liars and anyone that’s being ‘fake’. Since they are honest with you they expect the same courtesy in return, if you're fake with them they'll have no time for you. They can smell a fake from a mile away. They can get inside your heart and mind in no time but not misuse your weaknesses.
Reason #12: Cancer can be extraordinarily generous at times. They'd be willing to empty their wallets to pay for you just so you can have a blast.
Cancers are generous. Even when a Cancerian is going through hard times, he or she will still be generous with those who are close to him or her. Not known for being frugal or particularly good with money, Cancers will spend more money than they should before they risk being thought of by others as cheap. Cancer is one of the most giving personalities that you’ll ever come across and it’s not uncommon for them to the bestow their friends and family with massive acts of generosity out of nowhere.
Reason #13: Cancers will care about you more than any other one.
More than any other astrological sign, Cancers are exceptionally loving and caring. It is no surprise Cancer is the sign that represents motherhood; Cancers have strong maternal instincts and are empathetic by nature. If you are lucky enough to be friends with Cancers, they will care about you more than they care about themselves. NO ONE loves their best friends like Cancerians do. They'll go out of their way to meet your emotional needs. They treat being a best friend like a full time job and they are willing to go above and beyond for the people they love. If you were to look up "best friend" in the dictionary, you would see a picture of a Cancer right next to the definition.
Cancers are protective; they will defend those they care about to the death.
One reason you want a Cancer on your team is because the sign is very loyal. When you get close to a Cancer, you are family, and the family-oriented crab will likely do just about anything for those it lets into the exclusive walls of its shell. You can mess with Cancers, but never mess with their friends or family
Reason #14: But don’t cross them. They forgive, but never forget.
Cancers are generally pretty easy going in their approach to life but don’t mistake that for thinking that they will just allow people to walk all over them. When provoked their claws will come out and they’ll be sure to put you in your place in the way that only a Cancer can. Cancer tries to treat people as they would like to be treated but when somebody seriously violates their trust or wrongs them in some way that they simply can’t forgive… well they can hold a grudge for a long ass time. It’s best to just avoid getting on their bad side because they have long memories and they aren’t quick to forgive betrayal.
