It is often said that women have a ‘type’ and date similar guys back to back. Just as frequently I find they end up dating men who are the opposite, not of them, but of their last boyfriend! Take for example the bevy of Hollywood beauties who have hopped from a serious relationship with a Cancer man to a serious relationship with a Capricorn man, or vice versa.
Taurus Jessica Alba, spent several years engaged to her “Dark Angel” co-star, Cancer Michael Weatherly. After they broke it off she took up with producer Cash Warren, a Capricorn. They are now engaged and expecting a baby together. Sagittarius Scarlett Johannson fell in love with Capricorn bad-boy Jared Leto after she first made it big in Los Angeles. After they split she began a long relationship with Cancer Josh Hartnett (She has since ditched this genre altogether for the sultry charms of Scorpio Ryan Reynolds). And Capricorn Sienna Miller is best known for her high profile relationship with fellow Capricorn Jude Law, then she played the field for a little while before finding love again with Cancer Rhys Ifans. And to add to this rather complicated wheel of merry-go-round lovers, Taurus Penelope Cruz also dated Capricorn Orlando Bloom last winter before throwing him off for Cancer Josh Hartnett. Now she is with Pisces man Javier Bardem, who is more like the Cancer men than the Capricorns.
So what exactly is sexy about Cancer and Capricorn men? And which one is has more sex appeal? Well, the Cancer man has this quality of making you think that you are the most important thing in the world to them, that there is nobody else in their life and that you can make them feel comfortable opening up about their dreams and desires. This can be intoxicating to the woman who has spent years or months with a Capricorn man, more worried about balancing his checkbook than exploring his fantasies. Notice how Sienna, Scarlett and Penelope went from relationships with Capricorns to Cancers; they needed more of an instinctual and romantic bond. Jessica on the other hand went from being with a sensitive Cancer to being with a practical Capricorn; she needed more structure and somebody who supported her career as much as, or more than, making demands on her private life.
These men have certain qualities in common as well. They are both perceptive about the needs of the people around them, they are both good at giving and receiving favors, they both have a good sense of humor that stays slightly under wraps, they both take a little while to warm up to new people and they both enjoy carefully building a life surrounded by the people and creature comforts they desire. But Cancers are all about doing this in the private, family arena whereas the Capricorns practice these skills in their career.
Most likely to throw you down on the bed with dozens of candles and rosebuds? Cancer.
Most likely to ‘surprise’ you with expensive jewelry on the first of every month? Capricorn.
Most likely to throw caution to the wind and suggest an elopement in Vegas? Cancer.
Most likely to want a five star wedding at a five star venue? Capricorn.
Cancer is sexier by the textbook. Sexier in the sense that sexy is unpredictable and romantic. Yes, at times they can be clingy and whiny and annoying (which isn’t sexy) but perhaps that the price to pay for unfettered passion. Capricorn is sexier for the women who wants absolutely no unpredictibility in her life, at least not in her bank account.
