There's something about Cancer woman traits that make everyone around them feel like they are special and loved. With ladies like Solange Knowles and Aubrey Plaza being born under this sign, it's easy to see why Cancers are so amazing (and gorgeous).

Cancer women bring together a mix of emotional availability, loyalty, and selflessness that is a constant reminder of why we love the sign so much. They are the type of people who put others first in any situation.

Cancer's symbol is the Crab, known for being sensitive and emotional, and is a Cardinal water sign, which means they are the initiatory force for the three water signs and the leader of the water solar season.

Cancer's glyph looks like two 6s placed in a circle, and one depiction of the glyph explains it's supposed to represent the claws of a crab. Cancer is ruled by the moon, making the Cancer female think with her heart instead of her head. As the moon waxes and wanes, and the tides change, so does her attitude.

The moon also connects Cancers with their emotional body and strengthens their intuition, instincts, and habits, giving the Cancer sign of the zodiac a powerful sixth sense. Cancer sun signs are loyal, funny, intuitive, charming, protective, moody, honest, and emotional.

What are Cancer woman traits like?

Cancers are deemed to have an emotional personality. All Cancer women look different but will feel the same in nature. They are emotionally intelligent and aware of other people's feelings. Cancer women are also very tender-hearted and are the most supportive close friends.

They are leaders and nurturers, and always go to great lengths to take care of their loved ones 9friends and families). On the downside, Cancer women can have unpredictable mood swings and very paranoid or flighty.

Cancer women can also be very flirty and seductive, and tend to be artistic, romantic, sensitive, and eccentric.

Don't let their soft personality fool you because they can also be very tough. They have a hard shell (the are the Crab, after all), which makes it hard for them to show their true emotions easily.

A Cancer woman is special and truly one-of-a-kind. She makes a wonderful friend, confidante, and partner because of her loving and loyal personality.

How do you attract a Cancerian woman?

Cancer women are physically attracted to a strong, independent, sociable man who knows who he is, and has a gentle heart and kind eyes.

To attract a Cancer woman, you sort of have to let her be in control and be someone that needs them. If you can empathize with a Cancer and offer them empathetic support and unconditional love, they will have a special place in their heart for you.

Cancer women flirt by smiling a lot and using plenty of eye contact. She might seem a little shy at first, but she will warm up to you and start playful conversation with you. She will also laugh at all your jokes if she genuinely finds them funny, and touch you subtly when she gets the chance.

She will always dress the part and look amazing just for you on dates. This is so she will know you appreciate what she looks like, and will attempt to get your number so the two of you can keep in contact.
