In accordance with the thinkings of ancient Chinese Astrology people born in the Year of the Pig are highly emotional charged. They are believed to acquire the playful vivacious persona of this creature. When these people arrive in the Western astrological sign of Cancer too they often gain lots of this lively spirit in their personalities. The Cancer Pig’s character is one of a mix of fun, sensitivity and passion, along with a giving, helpful nature. These people may appear to be rather louder in voice and style than most other Cancerian’s. They do not like to be ignored and so often develop many ways to attract attention.
Cancer Pig Traits
The Cancer Pig personality likes being around the presence of others more than anything else. They are generally not happy with just their own company and much prefer pair or group situations. They make friends really easily and are usually attentive and loyal in all relationships they enter into. A Cancerian Pig is a trusting individual and so their sensitive passionate personalities are easily hurt. If you betray their friendship or trust they will sometimes find it extremely difficult to forgive you. These individuals put a lot into relationships but expect a lot back from them. They are very family orientated and will work hard to build secure futures.
To attract the attention of a Cancer Pig, or make him or her relax, you have to appeal to the playful side of their natures. This evokes the flirtatious lively influence of the Pig and the dreamy imaginitve side of the Cancer and makes them feel at ease. Once they feel relaxed with others these personalities will open up a little and their merry expressive traits bubble to the surface. These people make lovely attentive partners and parents who can always find time to talk and play. Their personality combination of playfulness and responsibility is ideal for nurturing and growing strong relationships.
The Cancerian Pig personality has a wonderful sense of humor that they find useful to help them through life. They are natural entertainers but appear to maintain a strong sense of maturity and responsibility. These people do not like to be idle and like to feel that they have a real purpose in life. They aim to get the most out of every day and seem to have a great skill of taking things day by day and in their stride. The Cancerian Pig possesses a sociable kind natured personality that rarely gets depressed and helps keep others spirits high. The Pig’s influence keeps sensitivity in check and generally keeps their mood fairly balanced.
The highly charged emotional persona of the Cancer Pig has lots of positive qualities but does have a weakness. Their reactions emotionally are very quick and this adds to and benefits their compassionate natures. However these fast reactions are sometimes over reactions to events. In these circumstances the Cancer Pig may display mood swings and become short tempered and prone to be impulsive. They require partners who gently help them understand that they have over reacted.
Cancer Pig Compatibility (Love & Friendship)
Those born under the sign of Cancer Pig are all about family. Close friends and family members are the top priority in a Cancer Pig’s life and they will bend over backwards to try to accommodate the needs of those close to them. Simultaneously, they expect others to share their commitment and can feel slighted and even hurt if their affection is not returned in full. Nevertheless, it takes a lot for a member of this sign to walk away from the needs of their family, which can open them up to being taken advantage of.
Love is of great importance to a Cancer Pig. They won’t ever feel quite complete until they are settled down with a family of their own. This sign’s kindness and affectionate nature makes others feel comfortable with them easily. This quality traditionally benefits them better later in life than in their youth. Young female Cancer Pigs often attract delinquents and troublemakers while young male Cancer Pigs often find themselves thought of as “nice guys” and “just friends”. Luckily this phase will pass when others mature enough to appreciate the true qualities of the Cancer Pig. This sign would do best to wait until a bit later than their peers to settle down for good.
Cancer Pig Business (Career & Goals)
Though the thoughtful and intelligent Cancer Pig is capable of succeeding in a great many careers, they gravitate toward jobs that allow them to take care of others, even if indirectly. Any career involving food is perfect for a Cancer Pig such as chef, delicatessen owner, or caterer. Members of this sign see food as their way of giving back, and almost every Cancer Pig has a refined palate and a natural ability to blend flavors.
Cancer Pigs may also find joy in other food-related careers such as ranching or farming, but they often feel a little too dainty for the demands of physical labor. Similarly, this sign can find success in building and construction, though they won’t be doing the heavy lifting for very long. Cancer Pigs are the foremen, planners, and managers of building sites. This role also helps them feel like they are taking care of their family of workers as well as the family that will eventually move into the homes they are constructing.
