What Virgo men find sexy about Cancer women


Which pie will turn on a Virgo man?

  1. Vegan apple pie made with wheat-free crust, unsaturated oil and agave nectar.
  2. The kind of pie you’d get at Applebee’s.

Who’s gonna cook it?

  1. A Cancer woman.
  2. Virgo’s Mama.

OK, part 2 was a trick question.

A Virgo man values purity, so if a Cancer woman wants to appeal to him, she’s gotta live out the perfect mother archetype to a T. Although nothing turns a woman on like watching her husband vacuum, this will work for a Virgo man as well.

Caution: Virgo men are more self-critical than they are critical of others, and it’s likely that Mom harped on him as a youth. It can be a challenge for a Cancer woman to do the cooking-and-cleaning bit without also, well, being a Cancer. The Virgo man may take her moodiness personally, and sometimes she just might be crabby enough to pinch him. Then he will criticize her cooking and point out the creases in the shirts she pressed for him, and before you know it she’ll be sulking and he’ll be harping, and, as the formula goes:

WATER (Cancer) + EARTH (Virgo) = MUD.

    My lovely Virgo and Cancer combo! I must say, being with my Virgo has been one intense journey. From both of us putting one another through our mental trust tests, arguing and then coming to solid conclusions to having our son a few months back. My Virgo is quite a character. We both love to help others, so we both share an equal amount of curiosity and jealousy when it comes to trying to lend a hand to those in need. We’re a fun pair that love to have out at home or make plans to go somewhere exciting! The only downside for me is that I’ve been feeling like sex is more important to me than it is to him. I enjoy sex, I love to explore, but we rarely have sex and is always been that way. He never makes a move because he says that he’s not used to being the one to make a move and it’s annoying to be the one that always has to get things going. I also don’t know if he’s even in to me physically, which is confusing as I know I’m a catch. As a Cancer, we love excitement and we love to feel wanted by the one that we share our life with, so this has been rough on me. Any Virgo men have any advice on how to get my man to understand that I want to have fun with him? I’m getting to the point where I might just find a girlfriend to mess around with on the side, because I don’t want another man but I am in dire need of affection.

    This is a reply to ZAR’s comment above:

    I’m a Gemini w Virgo rising, so a fellow mercurial, and I was in a relationship with a Cancer man who was, for lack of a more gentle phrase, terrible in bed. Terrible. Absolutely. Frickin’. Terrible. Extremely inhibited, incurious, unadventurous. It makes me angry and depressed thinking about it still, many, many years later. Some Cancers, it seems, are like this, especially if there is a lot of Cancer in their chart beyond their sun (this guy had Mercury, Mars and a couple asteroids in Cancer). I have Juno and Psyche in cancer, so I attract cancerian types like crazy, but i love sex, I love to laugh and be at ease with sex, it’s playtime for me (My gem Sun is conjunct Eros!), so being with someone very repressed sexually is very difficult for me. And no one does sexual repression like Cancer. It’s how they crawl into their shells when they are asked to be open and vulnerable and refuse to come back out, and some are worse about than others. Sorry, Cancers.

    Just talk to him. I’m a Virgo man, and I have a Cancer woman. We started out rough, because as a Virgo man we are critical of everything and and everyone. It all must be perfect, but that’s not real life. Make him feel comfortable when you talk to him, but tell him how his actions are making you feel. Above all let him know that you love him, but you need him. Tell him you need him to help you love him. Sometimes we just need to know we are needed, but you have to say it. Never leave it up to interpretation. Don’t beg for his attention, but let him know you want it. In other words, sit down and have a conversation with him. Don’t talk at him, don’t talk to him, have a conversation with him, about how you make him feel, and how he makes you feel.

    Hi im 55 year old cancer woman, and i have met a 57 year old Virgo man, we met on the internet and immediatley had a connection, i feel like he is the missing half of me i have been looking for all my life, he brings me flowers every week and after 6 months he has brought me a commitment ring to prove how much he wants to be with me (I was dumped by a Virgo man 8 months ago, after i had beleived everything he had told me .. he said he loved me and we would be together and live together, we went out for 16 months and i fell in love for the first time in my life, we went on holiday and made plans to move in together, then one day out of the blue he text me, to say i was not fun anymore and dumped me.) it was like i had my heart ripped out and frozen and then smashed into a million pieces. I am so wary of Virgo men, and i gave my new guy a very hard time as i did not beleive anything he said, so he brought me the ring to show how much i mean and has asked me to marry him. I just dont understand how virgo men can be so different. my bofriend is 14th Sept and my X 1 sept.
