Cancer is the fourth phase of cosmic creation, from Aries’ “I am”, over the Taurus and “what is mine” and Gemini “who is around me”.

Why a Cancer man is so moody?
Cancer man is not moody just like that, at least not all of the time. The Cancer sign is ruled by the Moon, and as such, a Crab man is prone to frequent fluctuations of emotions. He has a delicate intuition, and therefore, he is able to easily sense or predict something negative happening around him.
The four major elements, fire, earth, air, and water are the basic pillars in astrology. And the sign of Cancer belongs to the water element.
This is why Cancer is the epitome of emotions, the roots, and the origin or deep emotional belonging to the origin of creation. Crab is all about feeling, and then thinking and deciding.
It’s not the moodiness per se that portraits the Cancer man, it’s basically his need to feel safe, protected, and recognized in a harsh world, and to have his safe haven shown through his lover, family, or home.

Anything that threatens those precious things will destabilize him, too, in an emotional sense.

His negative characteristics are emotional instability or powerful psychological attachment, dramatization or overreaction, addictions, mood swings, and self-destructiveness. He can be so good, but so hard to bear in some moments.
He will be devoted to things and people he knows and trusts, and this is why he won’t be able to communicate clearly. His mental world will be the world of emotions, and if he doesn’t feel that something or someone is right, he will simply pull back. And this characteristic brought him the name Crab or Cancer.
While getting to know someone at first, he will be completely silent, letting that other person talk and show through gestures. This will often produce the effect of repulsion in the other people because he will seem disinterested or bored.
However, and on the contrary, he will just carefully observe and judge. And the next meeting will present him as someone open, interesting and above everything else, funny.
Can you seduce a Cancer man?

However, this formula will not guarantee his true love and devotion after all. You see, his natal Sun is positioned in the sign of Cancer. But the Cancer man can have his natal Moon, as the ruler of this Sun and his whole natal chart, placed in any other Zodiac sign.
Therefore, his mental and emotional states will significantly differ from the usual Cancerian behavior.
On the other side, you can rely on his natal Venus position, and this planet is never too far from the sun. In the case of a Cancer man, his Venus can be placed in the signs of Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, or Virgo.
Venus in the male’s natal chart shows how he relates to attraction, pleasure, and his ability to admire and become mesmerized with something or someone, as the object of his desires.
If his natal Venus is placed in the earth signs like Taurus and Virgo, he will fall for rational, practical, feminine types of ladies with strong organizational skills. If his Venus is in Gemini, he will be amazed by the sweet talks and joy, and if his Venus is in Leo, he will fall for “shiny objects”, so you will have to take tremendous care of your appearance and flash him with your royal style.
In the case his natal Venus is in his sign, Cancer, he will naturally incline toward those sensitive and quiet girls.
How to attract the younger Cancer man
The younger Cancer guy will be incredibly drawn to the older-looking, serious, elegant, and very organized ladies. He is that picture of a boy staring at some respectable lady, or of a boy falling in love with his elementary school teacher. He will need the structure to feel alive.
The most important thing to have in mind is that you have to be organized and with a strong sense of purpose. There are feminine and less feminine women, talkative or less talkative, but the one with the clear goal in her life, dedication, and discipline to achieve it, will be the girl he will madly fall in love with for sure, every time without any exception.
This is happening because the natural area o partnerships for the sign of Cancer, falls in the sign of Capricorn on the other side of the Zodiac wheel. Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn.
This planet can be placed anywhere in an individual’s natal chart. However, wherever it is, it will indicate the structure and the levels of understanding and overcoming obstacles in life.
Having those traits in mind, you will have the biggest success with the Cancer man if you position yourself as someone serious, traditional, a bit conservative, but elegant in its simplicity and avoiding rebellious, or heaven forsake scandalous behavior.
How to attract a mature Cancer man
The older or the mature Cancer will suddenly become more prone to carnal pleasures, dreamy and exceptionally romantic relationships. It will seem as if he had to spend a lot of time dealing with serious people, and now he is ready to explore all other sensations to their fullest potential.
After so many years of seeking structure and inner emotional protection, he will find himself liberated, thirsty for change, and ready to make up for all those things or situations he missed earlier in life.
In those moments his Scorpio and Pisces areas of the natal chart will get highly activated, and he will emerge himself deeply in the water element constituted of strange, perhaps edgy, and certainly dreamy or ecstatic experiences.
In this case, you will have to act like a Scorpio woman, deeply mysterious and somewhat powerfully sexual in your appearance and communication. Edgy, many times, challenging sentences or fine jokes with sexual underlining will have to enter your vocabulary and thoughts.
You will also have to show yourself ready to experiment, take great risks, and even play dirty, generally in life. This style will leave him wanting you more and more each day.
On the other hand, using the secret powers of the sig of Pisces, you should become interested in human psychology, occult, or other mysterious phenomena. And at the same time, you could emerge in the world of science or fine arts. All those traits will provoke his immediate interest, and also, tremendous admiration.
And in short, by talking and behaving like Pisces person in public, and by acting like a Scorpio person in private, you will have a Cancer man, fully at your disposal, and he will feel like some strange and powerful magic is bonding you both for all times.
The most important thing here is not to forget yourself, your dreams and aspirations, because a Cancer man will always support you, but he won’t be able to actively help you build your goals, or to finance them.
On the other hand, he is the ideal partner for ambitious and masculine women who had enough fights in the outside world and only want their peace of mind, and lots of loving at home.
