Cancer: June 21 - July 21
Cancer Likes and Dislikes
By Brian Palenske
Cancer likes and dislikes are born under the moody Moon and the element of water. These heavenly influences are apparent in
our Cancer likes and dislikes list below.
Our list of the top likes and dislikes for the Cancer zodiac sign:
Being appreciated - Cancer likes laughter, whether they are producing it or enjoying it, and part of
this is that it's a sign of appreciation for them. They may not seek the spotlight, but when, for any reason, they
become the subject of applause, they truly enjoy it.
History; the past - Cancer people tend to look to history and the past for inspiration; they are often
collectors of memorabilia or study famous personages; in fact, more than one astrologer has noted that they love
Treasures - They are also collectors of more personal treasures; it's not uncommon for a Cancer to
have things from their childhood in their homes even at an advanced age.
Money - Cancer likes, probably because of their aversion to poverty, and can be quite acquisitive when
it comes to money. They tend to be financial whizzes, sometimes from their childhood, thanks to Jupiter being exalted in
their sign. There is very little the determined Cancer does not know about the financial world, and will prefer buying
things that will increase in value rather than looking for bargains. Outside of their personal treasures, which they will
never part with, the Cancer will occasionally collect items for their resale value, like pieces of art or vintage motor
Their home - Cancer likes their homes most. There is an almost religious fervor about the care and
maintenance of the Cancer home, because it is the staging ground for nurturing and caring for their families and friends.
Cancer people generally love children, and will spare no expense when it comes to making their homes child friendly and
filled to the brim with the special treats they love, even when the children are not their own.
Cruelty - Cancer has an intense dislike of cruelty in any form. Whether it's a story on the news
about cruelty to animals, or the type of injustices perpetrated on people, this type of news causes the Cancer person to
become quiet and withdraw into their shells.
Discussing their personal lives - Cancer dislikes talking about their private and personal lives with
others, although they are quite skilled at finding out everything there is to know about the details of another
individual's life. This may be because the Moon, the planet of Cancer, only reflects the light of the Sun; Cancer
people tend to reflect whatever a person brings to the table back to them.
Financial insecurity - Most Cancer people have a fear of financial insecurity, and this extends to the
idea of "not having" in general. One might say that everyone has this fear, but a Cancer that wins the lottery
worries about what they'll do when the money runs out. You'll often find Cancer people who have cartons of food
stashed in their homes, because to them, having things protects them from "the worst."
Being alone - The typical Cancer person fears being alone even more than they fear being without
possessions. The main reason Cancer people are so well-liked is that they enjoy the company of others so much. When a
Cancer suffers the break-up of a relationship, it can take them quite a while to move on.
Negative thinking - Cancer dislikes negative thinking immensely. Negative thinking can cause a Cancer
person to become physically ill; they are more prone to thinking themselves into a physical or mental state of imbalance
than any other sign.
