Cancers are known for their emotional intelligence.

This Moon-ruled zodiac sign has an emotional and supportive personality in general.

They are the friend who listens and compliments you.

But having a person care so much and give too much attention can make you feel annoyed.

What makes Cancer annoying?

Cancers are known to be nurturing and caring.

However, with all the work a Cancer puts into their friendships they want a mutual feeling of caring and respect.


But not everyone can give a person that, which makes Cancer annoying to them.

Cancers also want to know the answers to everything.

Cancers overthink things that are bothering them and they want to know the truth deep down inside.

Some people don’t like being confronted with that.

They don't like to be asked honest and important questions, but relationships need trust, and vulnerability means so much to Cancers.

Cancers expect you to be on the same page as they are.

They want you to care the same as they do, and sometimes this zodiac sign doesn’t explicitly say that and that can make people annoyed.

Sometimes it’s hard for Cancer zodiac signs to deal with their own emotions.

They put other people ahead of themselves, which stresses them out for no reason, and then they complain.

Other signs hate that Cancers randomly do it, but it’s not their fault that they are an empathetic sign.


Cancers know that they can be too sensitive even over a small argument or misunderstanding.

A lot of emotional energy goes into being a Cancer, and it's hard to understand their sensitive nature.

Here’s what makes Cancer annoying to themselves and others, per astrology:

1. Cancers are too sensitive.

Cancer zodiac signs are ruled by the Moon which is forever changing. 

The Moon has many phases and this can create an emotional change in Cancer.

Being ruled by the Moon means that Cancer zodiac signs can get very sensitive almost about anything or talking about anyone.

There’s really no reason why they get emotional and when they do they can start crying for no reason, especially when upset.


2. Cancers want to be in control.

Cancer zodiac signs are represented by the Crab who has a protective outer shell. 

Cancers want to feel protected too, and this can come out in controlling ways.

Cancers want to know everything and have a plan, they don’t like it when something is being miscommunicated towards them.

However, when friends make plans or do something without them intentionally, Cancers realize that they can’t control everything.

Other zodiac signs get annoyed when a Cancer thinks that everything is going to go right when it’s most of the time up to the universe what’s going to happen.

3. Cancers are overly vulnerable.

Cancer zodiac signs are cardinal and so they like to start things.


But they typically put their heart and soul in whatever it is that they strive to accomplish. 

This means being vulnerable, and it takes a lot of courage for Cancer to come out of its shell.

They can be too vulnerable and pushy sometimes, and it annoys other people.

Others don’t like it when they start to get that way because they know deep down a Cancer wants you to be vulnerable with them as well.


4. Cancers will smother you.

Cancer zodiac signs are associated with the fourth solar house in astrology

The fourth house is about family, the home, and things that are familiar. 

So, what Cancers don't know, they want to learn, and this can come across as overbearing.

It’s just in their nature to care about family, friends, and even acquaintances.

It’s sometimes way too much for others to handle.

They might share too much information or ask to hang out too much or text too much, which often happens in paragraphs.

Other signs are really annoyed by that because they like to keep it simple, but Cancers love to love.
