Cancers have good intentions so it is heartbreaking when they cant lend a helping hand and or can't do anything to relive a person especially if they are in pain.

Cancers aren't always sugar, spice and everything nice. Cancers have a bad side too, and they may be the cause that their relationship is not where it should be and why their relationship is doomed to fail. Cancers have a horoscope that makes them prone to being insecure, moody and manipulative.

Cancers are born manipulators because they can get anybody to like them. Their charm to draw people in and have people gravitate toward them makes Cancers prone to manipulating others and getting what they want.

A person may think a Cancers really likes them, but in the end, a Cancer is just fulfilling a need that needs to be filled.  Cancers are also prone to being suspicious about people and their intentions.  Cancers usually do all the legwork, and when someone wants to take a load off and make things easier for a Cancer, Cancers get suspicious and lash out. 

Yes, Cancers can be caring and they can have a dark side and be manipulative. Deep down they want to do the right thing. If breaking up is what makes a Cancer happy then that's their right. Find out how Cancers deal with a breakup with each zodiac sign, per astrology.

Aries (March 21 - April 21)

Aries is first in everything and the leader in the wolf pack. Their dominant nature and can-do attitude are what attracted the Cancer zodiac sign to Aries in the first place. Aries has the ambition to start things and complete things but never does and that upsets the Cancer zodiac sign.

Cancer always sees things through because their zodiac sign cares too much about other people and what is expected of them. The Cancer zodiac sign is fed up with Aries' dominant nature and not seeing things through to the finish.

The Cancer zodiac sign wants someone who cares enough to follow through and isn't afraid to let their guard down. Letting go of an Aries will be a relief to a Cancer because their ambitions and horoscopes don't exactly line up with each other.

Cancers care too much and need to be in a relationship where that is valued. Breaking up face to face won't do any good because Cancers know that Aries will start conflict because their symbol is the ram. Sending a text or even calling will help the Cancer zodiac sign break up with Aries sooner rather than later.

Taurus (April 21 - March 20)

For Cancer, the Taurus zodiac sign is too stubborn and wants things their way all the time. The Cancer zodiac sign knows that Taurus wants to be independent and wants to rule the roost, but Cancer isn't down for that. Unlike a Cancer, the Taurus zodiac sign doesn't do something unless there is a reward attached to it.

Only thinking of themselves and not caring for others, turns Cancer off and Taurus is oblivious to that. Taurus is so into themselves that they are neglecting the people around them. Cancer has taken notice and is not pleased.

Cancer knows that talking to a Taurus will be like talking to a brick wall. Breaking up will have to be through Facebook or just walking away. Cancer's time with Taurus has come to an end and Cancer is happy about that.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are fun-loving and curious always wanting to try something new and experience life in a different way. Geminis have 2 personalities in one and it can be overwhelming sometimes to keep up with everything that is going on with them.

Getting one personality one day and another the next day can be overwhelming and draining on a Cancer. Cancer wants a person who can be consistent and dating  a Gemini isn't it. Although Geminis are fun-loving and are fun to be around, Cancers want somebody who is serious and not willing to play games all of the time.

Cancers need a partner who is on the same playing field and Geminis do not fit the bill. Cancers know that being friends with a Gemini is a viable option, but continuing in the romance department is not going to happen. Sitting down and talking about what went wrong will be a suitable breakup option for Cancers.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

If a Cancer goes out with a Cancer than its fair game. Cancers know that they care too deeply and profoundly about others to care for themselves. If Cancers want to stay in a relationship with each other than they need to surprise each other because they know each others strong and weak spots.

The good thing about a Cancer dating their own zodiac sign is that they can enjoy activities together and hang out with people who have the same interest as them. Cancers don't want to break up with the other Cancer but If a Cancer feels that there is an opportunity to grow with another person a Cancer will take it and not look back.

Caring deeply about each other, Cancer will break up with its own zodiac sign by talking face to face and telling their partner the reason why the relationship isn't working out.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Cancer might date a Leo to have some control in their lives, but in the end a Cancer might regret it. Leos are independent beings and they know it. Being successful and achieving greatness is easy for Leo. Although their success is easily obtained, they know that having someone by their side and having a partner in crime is a better way to enjoy their blessings.

Cancers like Leos because they reach for success and never stop, always creating and never fully slowing down. The Downside to Cancer's relationship with a Leo is that they are controlling. Cancers feel that they are running on Leos time instead of their own.

Having independence is great and having a successful career is even better, but if Leo is controlling every step of the way than a Cancer will look for an out. Cancer doesn't believe a Leo would even listen to why they are not compatible and break up with them by not speaking to them anymore.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos are analytical, they need to seek out a schedule and need to stick by it. Being spontaneous is not their strong point. Cancers see this as a major drawback because whenever they go out with just the two of them or their friends they scrutinize everything and over analyze every situation.

It's becoming a pattern and Cancers don't want to put up with it anymore. Cancers thought that being in a relationship that was more structured would be the way to go, but that is simply not the case. Cancer is looking for a way out of the relationship but doesn't know how to go about it. Cancers are teetering on the decision of sending a text or writing a letter to get out of the relationship for good.

Cancer doesn't want to end the relationship but, feels that Libras time has come. There is no rhyme or reason why Cancer wants to break up with Libra, Cancer just knows that it is the right thing to do.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios sign is water, so they communicate with their emotions and that's why Cancer is drawn to Scorpio.

Scorpios determined personality to get things done and accomplish things in life has Cancer hooked on them because Cancer wants to accomplish things in life and Scorpios have ambition and drive to help Cancer achieve their goals.

Their determination to get stuff done sometimes cause a rift in Cancers relationship with a Scorpio because they are so concentrated on what they are doing that they lose sight of what is important to them. Cancers notice that they fall by the wayside once an important project comes up.

Cancers want to be Scorpio's number one fan, but they are wrapped up in other things. The relationship has grown sour. Breaking up will be hard to do because Cancer feels connected to Scorpio. Staying friends after the breakup will be possible. Talking about the breakup face-to-face will bring closure to Cancer.
