I've noticed on several different Lindaland threads that Cancer Mars people tend to like their opposite sex partners "on the chubbier side."

Is this a matter of likes attracting, or of opposites attracting? Put another way, do Cancer Mars people themselves tend to be chubby or the opposite of chubby (lean)?

Okay, what about the other 11 Mars signs? How do you characterize their body types, and
what do they prefer for a body on their partner?

It would be informative also to know the Sun signs of individuals whose Mars and body types with whom you are acquainted.

Thanks.

I'm Leo Mars. Attracted to romantic partners in radiant robust health(gymnasts, athletes, Yoginis), playful, in good humor, cordial. Fave body type is full-bodied voluptuous (not fat) and buxom.

I go for men who are as much like me as possible! Honestly, so as I'm 5'7, athletic and pretty lean my preference for guys is about 6 foot, with a similar build. I don't like them too skinny, or overly muscular, neither do a like a guy to be overweight and not in shape.

Not to say that I often end up dating my type (personality does come first after all) but that is my preference.

I'm Venus in Capricorn, Mars in Taurus. (Uranus conjunct ASC, exactly square Venus, Mars square my Sun-Jupiter)

Thanks Loveher. Maybe a touch of synchronicity at work here. The only Cancer Mars I know is a woman I met at the gym. She tends to the pear-shape if she doesn't work out with weights. (A nice pear, at that, however.) She is anything but lazy.

Comdoc, you would find much to draw and hold your attention in my territory. Your fave body type is prevalent here, though most are over the gunwales, if you know what I mean.

What is your Sun sign?

Thanks for your response.

Wax, if I substitute my 6'-1" for your 5'-7" and switch genders, you have written precisely what I would describe as myself and my preferences in a woman's build.

Being the male, I have no problem with women who are a few inches shorter than me, though not so short that standup-smooching becomes a challenge. Over-weight and flabby are the major turnoffs.

Oddly, our planets do not show any common placements. My Mars sits in Aires conjunct Asc, trine Venus in Sag. Sun Libra.

I hope you don't have as much difficulty finding desirably sized and shaped partners from the opposite sex as I do.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi GrandFireT,

Maybe it's that my Mars-Jupiter square brings the athleticism to the table. Also I have Mars in the 7th, ruling the 6th and 7th, so there is that requirement for the sporty side of things I suppose ;-)

I have no problem finding men that size and height, it's finding the emotional depth and true intelligence that's more rare!! Haha!

My preference for a man is for him to be in shape, but I don't like men to be overly muscular. All a man needs to do is work out just enough to be healthy. Going wild at the gym and doing intense workouts guarantees that a man isn't my type. This said, a man that puts time and effort into the clothing he wears is also preferred.

I'm picky when it comes to men, though my pickiness has lessened a little as my tastes have changed with my age.

Generally, my taste in a man's body type is also on the skinny side. However, t's not always required.

I have Venus in Taurus and Mars in Aries.

I dated a Cancer in Mars. He told me I should "walk" more, lol.

He is buff as, worked as a male model and stripper while at Uni when younger and always kept up appearances.

He ended up marrying a woman who looked just like me, but slim!

I'm pretty sure all the women he hooks up with now he's married are pretty curvy since he doesn't get it at home.

Know exactly what you mean when you speak of the extreme fitness types. They are a case study unto themselves. Someone suggested that gorilla-types are in it mainly for the other gorillas.

Your preferences make good health sense. Do I dare ask if they mirror your own physique?

Funny how, in one form or another,Taurus is a common denominator to several of the responses.

Wouldn't you think that, of all people, Mars Cancer would be getting it at home?

TVG, I wonder if you're going to be telling HIM to take a walk now that the stripper is running loose.

Two cancer Mars males have been trying to court me relentlessly. I am very curvy and do work out...but I don't flaunt myself. They both like "hips" and I have a good amount in that department. But it's balanced from the waist up so I think some may be drawn to a more curvy appearance. Just based on my own experience.

For me...I am Gemini mars, taurus Venus. I'm attracted to men with darker features, tan or darker skin. Broad shoulders make my knees weak. Big hands too. They do not have to be well dressed I can look past that easily. Definitely broad shoulders tho.

I think that may stem from my natal Mars/Saturn conjunction. I also have a cap 7th house...so the upper body strength would be a lure for me.

Oh, he'll be getting it at home too even though he now has a 1 and 2 year old keeping him busy at 48 years of age.

But he spent his life living a jetset lifestyle with a woman in every port. Marriage is NOT going to stop him living his life as a single man when his wife is not around!

I have virgo rising and Venus Aries.
Mars in Gemini Oppo Saturn and Uranus.
I have a slender body but at the same time blessed with nice curves. Virgo hourglass type of body.

I run 4-5 times a week and I work out with weighs 3 times a week. And I don't eat gluten ( , virgo)

I prefer men who is a bit tall (1,80cm) but not too tall. And lean (not skinny) and fit.
Overly buff I don't find attractive. Abs! I looove abs!

For me a man that does not work out and does not have a healthy life style is a huge turn off.

I take care of my body as an investment for a healthy body and life and a body that hopefully won't fall apart that easily with age. So that kind of mindset is what I wan't in a man too. Also a person who works out is a sign that person has huge disciplin and will power. As Plutonian and Mars-saturnian thats also a turn on for me.

I have a friend I have feelings for and he works out and has been for years. But he is not an arrogant show off and in your face about it. I still hope he will ask me join his gym as a work out buddy, lol!

He has Mars in capricorn conj Neptune. And I have Mars oppo Saturn. I think this type of combos/aspects gives one huge resillience and discipline. The need to wanna master ones body, type of thing

I think he is cancer rising. He is around 1,78cm tall, and he has a wide chest and broad shoulders and a walking style that screams cancer man

He sounds like a good candidate to crash and burn before too long.

Was he born in 1968?

Melinn, I admire your lifestyle. I'm sure the path you have chosen will pay off in the long term and is paying off as we write.

At the gym where I exercise, you find women in their 60's, 70's and even one 86-year-old gal who are living proof that your philosophy works.

I'm curious to know if many people in Sweden think and practice as you do? Sadly, where I come from, very, very few people care enough about their body and health to lift anything heavier than a second helping of potatoes or chocolate cake.

Well, with Venus in Aires, I'm surprised you aren't taking the initiative with your friend at the other gym. Regardless of your age, it's easy to imagine that males often take note of you.

Thanks for your good report.

Thank you for adding to the thread.

These male Mars Cancer guys seem to get around. Someone else reported elsewhere that this placement gives an indirect approach to courtship, on-again, off-again, and secret sideways crab moves. Is that your experience?

I think other factors would contribute to a lack to commit or secret affairs. No, I would not automatically characterize Mars in cancer males to be this way. Both that I know of are loyal and have never strayed, and yes they both have had committed relationships.

from my direct experiences. please don't be offended by language

pisces mars likes slender, but without extremes. themselves are slender, not muscular

cancer mars likes feminine, fit, preferably with brests. their own body type is pear-shaped, somewhat muscular if they try. often small belly or tire on hips

virgo mars likes skinny, long and tall. doesn't care for breasts. doesn't like bright makeup. some obsess over how the partner looks beside them. themselves are long, even if not skinny. some skinny-fat

libra mars likes feminine, not mascular on girls and not too skinny. likes both large breasts and bums, long hair. themselves are fit, guys inclined to lift weights, athletic. I wonder if any libra mars ladies prefer sports like yoga?

scorpio mars likes their specific fetishes. some may like long sexy legs and some obsess over butts, large breasts. themselves on the bigger side, can have a pot belly.

saggitarius mars (girls) like their men chubbier, with a small belly and cheeks. themselves are curvy, but fit if they try. usually too lazy though. their sports are more like arching, so not too physical. and guys are into sports with lots of running, like soccer. because of this they are fit until they stop exercising. they like average body types, not too skinny or muscular, and also like cheeks.

capricorn mars, based on one person. likes tall very fit, very muscular men. extreme in the gym. themselves are athletic, put on muscle easily. gymnast-type body

Mars in Sag, lol, yes, I prefer chubbier men.

I have an hourglass body, fit, and I like my body no matter what people say.

In a high school I hated my breast because it looked bigger than average of my friends and I couldn't do many sports as it blocked my movement. I used bigger clothes to hide my breast. But at the time I had some weight not like now. I like my body now as I can do a lot of sports without thinking too much about my breast and it makes less men stop looking at my nipples. I feel confident. lol.

I prefer outdoor sports than indoor (love running), so gym life is not for me unless it is yoga or boxing.

But venus in pisces gives me feminine nature look despite most of my masculine signs.

Yes, I like my man chubbier. Not into skinny men or too overweight. The boyfriends are all chubbier or average body type with some fat.

My exes have mars in Capricorn (fit body type) and mars in Taurus (chubbier, easier to gain weight).

Current with mars in Cancer (chubbier, when stress it's easier to gain weight).

Thank you! Wow 60-80 year olds at the gym! Now thats a sight for sure! Kudos to them, it's amazing! Yes indeed it really pays off! I also like feeling able and strong and I look 10 years younger then I am, no joke! I have never consumed alcohol nor smoked. Also it's genetic of course.

Well I think swedes are health concious, and having so close to nature even in big cities is helping too. I'm not sure if swedes are healthier though. I think it may be a generation releted thing too, I have to look up the statistics about this now! It's also a small country with around 9 million citizens.
Swedens rising sign as a country is actually virgo! They are hard workers and hardly no corruptions in this country, but thats an other topic.

Which country are you at?

Haha you are so right about Aries Venus! Indeed, if I hadn't started to give him strong eye contact during conversations,(he seemed a bit confused but didn't back off) all of the sudden when I had decided he is a good and attractive guy, which took me around 3-4 weeks lol. And if I hadn't pursued him by walking up to him to chat, we wouldn't be good friends now. He has Mars in cap and moon in Pisces, Venus Libra.

He waited a long time before he started to initiate touch in our interactions, until he seemed sure my interest was/is genuine.

Well because of some stuff, I can't be more direct. I ones before summer told him I'm gonna miss our group, "and also you" I added, and he immidiately suggested us to meet up and do something during the summer. So if he realy wanted me joining him at the gym, he would have suggested it by now. And I'm not comfy enough to suggest it. I have dropped hints though and he seemed so close a few times!

We also live at different directions, its 27 km between us! So I he may think it would be weird for me to drive that long.

BUT for ex I said a few weeks ago I try to find a better gym, and that I have to take a paus from gym because I don't like my gym.

He asked me about that a week ago, if I have found a new gym. I said no, still looking. He was quite for a moment and then he asked "But you "are" gonna start, right?". And I said yes, when I find a good one.

Haha so well I can't be more open then this I feel . And I guess he prefers to not be distracted by me. OR maybe he wanted me to ask "how is your gym?" and he too doesn't wanna be too direct, dunno. But if he really wanted to, he would have suggested it so... Ah sorry for babbling like this! :O

No, he was born in 69. But he'd also be craving a curvier woman. And he really really loves a naturally busty woman. Typical of any cancer man.
