1. How nurturing & considerate they are

If you want to feel taken care of, look no further than Cancer. These kind and compassionate water signs are your one-stop shop for feel-good, loving vibes.

Their ruler, the Moon, symbolizes motherhood and family in general. It fills them with deep wells of nurturing ability (yes, even the Cancer men, they’re considerate and such good guys). These men offer all the depth of a Scorpio with added feelings of safety and security. Sexy.

Their desire to nurture is deeply unconscious and compulsive. It gives them the closest thing to an embodiment of unconditional love.

They make you feel safe, seen, and cared for. It’s so hot (and rare) to feel like you’re so at home with someone. It’s very attractive to feel them attuned to you and deeply involved in your emotional well-being.

Just be sure to help them remember to give themselves enough of the same attention! They’re total givers and can neglect themselves sometimes.

2. Their uncanny intuition

Cancers are clairvoyant powerhouses. They’re intelligent and practical but are driven mainly by their incredibly well-developed feeling and intuitive senses. 

A Cancer that’s in tune with their intuitive radar has otherworldly hotness to them. They’re the masters of the subconscious, and their gut intuition allows them to flow through life effortlessly. Super attractive.

Sometimes their dreamy and subtle connection to the ethers feels a bit much for them, but we always appreciate it.

Being in a love affair with a Cancer is one of the most transcendent experiences you can have. 

These people overflow with romantic sentimentality that will have you melting into each other fast. You’ll be nodding along with their starry sentiments, feeling entirely swept away by this angelic being.

Cancers are romantics in the truest sense of the world. They may take some time to open up, but the love that blossoms from them is one of life’s true treasures. No matter how things go with a Cancer, you’ll be sure to have some extraordinary experiences.

It’s hard even to find the bounds of their creative potential, as their fluctuating Lunar influence and watery depths inspire constant upheaval and creative inventiveness.

Being a Cardinal sign, Cancers also have an attractive capacity for nurturing their creative projects. They’re finishers and are shrewd in business. Many Cancerians can become successful artists.

5. Their homemaking skills

Cancers are the rulers of home life and domestic affairs. 

Cancer itself rules the fourth house in the Zodiac, traditionally associated with the home and domestic matters.

People born under this sign have an intuitive knack for building a comfortable home and cozy atmosphere. They know what makes a house a home and leave no stone unturned when executing their vision.

It’s always a fantastic feeling to visit a competent Cancerian’s home. It’s like entering a world of care, attention, and domestic bliss.

6. Their signature good looks

In discussing what makes Cancer hot, let’s not leave out their trademark good-looking appearances.

Cancers tend to have a lovely look with distinctive and expressive eyes. They’ll usually have a rounder “moon-shaped” face and soft skin. You can pick up tons of subtle emotionality in their expressions. 

Cancer people usually have thick hair and are well proportioned. Occasionally they’re more top-heavy with longer arms and legs. Cancer rules the breast and digestion, so these people often have appealing stomach areas and breasts/pecs.

7. Their tenacity

While Cancer people are generally soft and sensitive, they’ll often catch people by surprise by how persevering they are.

As a Cardinal sign, they’re born initiators and often have clear aims and goals. Even though Cancer is quiet and well-mannered, their subtle will to fight enables them to accomplish their goals without coming across as pushy or demanding. 

Their tenacity also shows up in their loyalty and reliability. If you’re essential to them, a Cancer will always have your back and work hard to show up for you.
