Cancer wants to be in control. They are in charge of every aspect of their lives.

Cancer zodiac signs are also known for their manipulation.

When it comes to this zodiac sign's love lives, Cancers can often try to control what their partners do through manipulating and game-playing.

When Venus is in Cancer everything about your love life is going to be balancing the idea of control and self-protection.

For some, this may mean cautiously entering into relationships — slowly and on your terms and your turf. You may lead your potential lover on just to spurn their advances at the last minute.
