Only Taurus can equal Cancer in her energetic concern for security, the material aspects of survival. Cancer tends to focus on the basics: the quest for food, shelter, and the guarantee of comfortable, if not luxurious, living absorbs her. Sex is basic too, but the Cancer Woman tends to use it as her security blanket.
The Cancer Woman understands why progressive zoos create homelike habitats for their animals. As far as she is concerned, people who lack a home that resembles their childhood-conditioned ideal are almost always rootless, unhappy strangers on this earth. She believes that a good meal and nice family could fix just about everyone.
The Cancer Woman plans ahead, and her plans tend to revolve around material security. She wouldn't be caught dead impulse-buying, and fly-by-night fads leave her cold. She is more interested in steady accumulation: money that generates more money; a house that rises in value; clothes, jewelry, and furniture that have enough intrinsic worth not to depreciate.
She could not be convinced to throw caution to the wind and trust fate to protect her. She is determined to protect herself and usually feels that difficult days are just around the corner. In fact, she is somewhat of a pessimist, or perhaps a realist, depending on one's point of view. Liquid assets or actual dollars are the real signs of security to her, and she may have an account with more than one local bank.
The Cancer Woman can become obsessed with existential uncertainty. She can become a miser who hoards resources for tomorrow and neglects to live today. When she clings to things too much, she usually becomes more anxious and may put on weight and enjoy life less.
