So, who knows how to read a cancer male? (not me!) I cannot tell if a certain cancer (cancer sun and moon) is interested in me or not. One day he seems obviously interested seeks me out, chats, smiles, etc. The next day he ignores me or seems to talk to every one else but me. It goes back and forth like this. Today he sent me an email saying he'd talk to me next week. Then he came to speak to me this afternoon and chatted with me longer then usual, saying he'd call me this weekend.

I just can't get a good read on him. As a scorpio, pisces moon that is driving me crazy. I can usually read everyone.

I am a cancer female but I will give you my input. I would say this is very typical cancer behavior. I think he definetly likes you. Cancers tend to not pursue relationships directly and aggresively. They move from side to side. They pull forward and then pull back. I'm sure it can be very confusing but it's because we are so sensitive. I think he is testing you out a little. Keep having patience and I am sure he will come out of his shell. If he wasn't interested, I don't think he would keep making an effort to call you. Cancers, like most water signs are sort of shy with courtships..

the last cancer i fancied did this to me too, it drove me insane. so i gave up. i don't go out of my way for him anymore. but i wish you good luck on yours. they really are sweethearts, but boy, can they dodge you when they like you, lol.

As another Cancer gal I can say that what misskelly said is very accurate. I've been with Cancer men for a huge chunk of my life and they never fail to move back and forth, side to side. It's actually not unlike the way Scorpios test people really...just have patience and he'll likely come around. He owuld seem that he does like you but is not ready to admit to it for fear of being vulnerable.

I've had 2 relationships with Cancer men. One was for over 18 years.

You can tell by whether or not they do what they say. Sometimes Water boys will tell you what they think you want to hear. If they follow through, it is usually a good sign.
The Moon was full last night. This affects them like no other. Very Moody... He's double trouble with Sun and Moon.... j/k...
Always look him in the eye... and wear a low cut shirt... tasteful of course, but seductive... Your a Scorp! You should have no problemo.... Best of luck

Well, he sure is walkin' like the rest of us crabs. 1 step foward, 2 steps back, 3 to the left....Damn, we should all teach a samba class with our moves. But yeah, he definitely likes you. And yes, like Love said, this is really not unlike how Scorpios act in the same situation; knowing from experience.Only now were a official and I thought that would never happen because were both kinda shy and not so straight foward in these matters. (I have a virgo moon, he has a pisces moon)

Cancers are especially hypersensitive when they like someone.

Thank you love, misskelly, and everyone for your insight. I guess I'm being tested. I never really thought about it but I guess I do that too in a different, scorpio-like way.

Dulce, you crack me up. I want to sign up for your dance class. LOL at the low cut blouse star gazer.

Wow Fayte! Thanks for all those links. I did quite a lot of reading. Thanks for taking the time to do that for me. It sounds like you have a great husband. How did you know when you had him "hooked"? Sorry. I cant think of a better term right now.

Lauren, you bring up a good point about mercury. While ours are a little too far apart to be a trine (6 degrees), his is in cancer and mine is in scorpio. Water, water everywhere... So I'm not sure how to interpret him turning his back. He's done it before. I think it might be when he is on full tilt emotionally and can't get away is when he does it. I can't really quantify that. It's just an impression. He only does it when we are standing somewhere talking and I am standing in the only exit. He cannot physically walk away so he checks out. If we are chatting and I'm not in the door he'll end the convo and walk away. I try not to take it personally because I can tell he is overwhelmed. I just don't like the idea of being the cause of it. Hopefully it is overwhelmed with good emotions, not bad.

>>>You are welcome!
Hooked?
I NEVER worried about "hooking" or "catching him".
We were friends right from the start, then roommates, then where we are now!
I let it grow. I did not rush him.
If it was meant to be I figured it would grow.
And it did!
Going on 9 years and no complaints!
The big thing is I was just being myself. No games. And same for him. Still are!

Miss Scorpio,


I wouldn't write that card off just yet. Sure it says friend but remember: we walk sideways. He's very watery and therefore he may be trying to protect his feelings. Don't give up yet!

I know right? my Cancer did that for months!! Wanted to bash his head in.

I really wouldn’t worry about the friend thing. Maybe he’s just hesitating…I do that to guys I genuinely like all the time. It’s kind of a watery way to put someone on hold, while I get myself together.

My best friend is a cancer male my advice would be PATIENCE. He probably feels your connection as strongly as u do ,BUT, sometimes its harder for them to express it. Just be yourself and don't come on to strong . And if u feel a need to express yourself romantically, I would drop very subtle hints. Then u can see how he reacts. Good luck

The only thing I can say here is it it hard to tell if the Cancerian male is a master at procrastination or actually has a sense of it not being the right time.
It can and does often go both ways.

Hi Ms Scorpio,
i find myself in a similar situation. He is not a typical cancerian tho...i mean he does act this way but atleast knws tht and tries not to.

My 2 cents...be confident and be yourself. If you dont like things to remain weird, just say something tht wud break the ice without thinking abt it too much. actually this is wht i wud do...i always like the air to clear of misunderstandings I in your place wud hv said sth if it really bothered me that much. And said it in a matter-of-fact way without putting any blame on him. Like i am a little mad at you bcoz you didnt call to cancel. please do tht the next time round i dont like to be stood up

Do u think tht wud be too much for a cancer sun/moon to handle. dont show your anger emphasize on your emotional side. tht shud work

My cancerian friend gets a little heavy on the sarcasm sometimes. I mean i usually enjoy bantering with him n all tht, but sometimes some fuse goes off. wht i do in such situations is tht i tell him pointblank tht i am a sensitive person and tht it hurt me. he is always very apologetic later and feels genuinely bad. (he is a cancerian he shud knw all abt emotions!) and then i tell him its ok i'm not really mad (which is true...my anger is sooo short-lived) and things r all happy and shiny once again

i think the very reason he is avoiding u is tht he has sensed tht u r mad at him. if u feel tht is the case tell him u r not mad but u wud appreciate it if he takes care of it in the future. u don't need to get emotional just hint tht u hv emotions
Hey pardon my multiple posts i am like tht! i keep thinking and analyzing the situation frm every angle (which i always see one by one!)
