I know, I know, you didn’t mean to (or you couldn’t help yourself). But remember that Cancer is even more vulnerable than you. You both can hide it well — Cancer withdraws into his shell to protect himself, and you are master of keeping your private life secret — but poor Cancer is just so sensitive. Ruled by the emotional Moon, he doesn’t live by Scorpio’s “I don’t get mad, I get even” M.O. Rather, his is, “I get hurt, I curl up on my couch with my dog and a bag of chips and watch football.” (A female Cancer may do the same, but with a pint of ice cream and the Lifetime Channel.)
So, how is he going to trust you again? Security and safety are important to Cancer, so he’s not gonna open himself up to you unless he knows you won’t bite. He can forgive — he’s aware that moods fluctuate, and that people do regretful things when under the spell of their emotions.
Can you be a safe harbor to him, equal to his dog, remote and chips? That’s questionable. You can be consistent — that is, until the Plutonic force of change irrevocably alters your course, compelling you to burn all your bridges on the way to your new destination. That sounds a little too intense for Cancer — he doesn’t even want to cross the bridge.
So what does a Scorpio girl got to do?
Listen, you should be able to work this out. You’re both Water signs — you “get” each other when it comes to brewing in your feeling-worlds. You can be incredibly persistent when you’re driven to accomplish something. If you can convince him — as well as yourself — that no matter how turbulent your inner life becomes, you’ll still apply your Martian will towards stabilizing the home front, then he might let you back in. But, hey — there are no guarantees. You’re a Scorpio, after all.
