Cancer men will be feeling inspired going into 2021, in light of a Full Moon in their own sign a few days prior. The Full Moon in Cancer on December 20th, 2020 made this sign feel extremely connected to both their body and their home, recharging their creativity and imagination and reminding them of their love of stability and security. With January being a number 1 month in terms of Numerology, this only empowers them more, further adding an extra dimension to their personality.
Let’s look at the best ways to attract a Cancer man this month.
How To Attract A Cancer Man In January 2021
1. Appeal To His Love Of Home And Family
A sure way to a Cancer guy’s heart is to make it known how much you love your family, and how much you appreciate home. Security, stability and creature comforts are keywords here. These are all amplified due to the Full Moon in Cancer on December 30th just past, this man is feeling very comfortable in his private and personal life right now. He has an aura of depth and stability and is completely open to commitment, something long-term with longevity. He isn’t shy of a loving and mature relationship!
It would be wrong to go in all guns blazing or declaring your undying love. But it would be equally wrong to be overly reserved, shy or completely independent. January requires a balanced and somewhat sophisticated, or spiritually evolved, approach to attracting your potential Cancer mate.
The main thing to be aware of is that – assuming you’re dealing with an older Cancer in his late twenties, thirties, or middle-aged years, this man is in a very comfortable and stable position in life. He most likely has his own home, his own practical affairs, and a grounded approach to finances and security. What part will you play in his life?
2. Emotional Maturity And Intelligence Are Key
And this brings us straight onto the next point. Emotional maturity and intelligence alongside emotional vulnerability, an openness and authenticity to your intentions for connection, are essential.
January is a month that symbolizes action over passivity, independence over codependency, and self-assertion and confidence over receptivity or meekness. Number one in numerology is a number of self-leadership and strength.
Cancers have a new surge of life and zest in January, and especially after the empowering Full Moon right at the end of December. This guy is full of positive optimism and a desire to connect mentally, intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally. He will be feeling more balanced and whole within this month, so take advantage of his slightly more action-oriented approach to dating and love.
Ultimately, Cancers need emotional depth and intimacy. If you can show your independence combined with a unique type of sensitivity, one that resonates with the Cancer man’s personality, you will find yourself a potential keeper…
3. Make Small Romantic Gestures
Venus is in Capricorn until March, making him extremely romantic and soft; soft in a gentle, comforting, and loving way. Romance or more specifically, small but significant romantic gestures are recommended. Think a slight touch of the hand, brushing an upper body part or leg whilst making it look unconscious, and anything else sensual and spiritually stimulating!
Cancer possesses a lot of soul. They also love intimacy, which includes intensity in the eyes. If you haven’t heard of eye-gazing you may want to look it up and practice in front of a mirror. The eyes are the gateway to the soul, inner self (one’s true self) and psyche. Make a conscious reminder to spend a couple of extra seconds gazing into his eye –it doesn’t have to be so intense that it looks forced, but with your intuition you will know when the moment is right.
You may want to check out the Cancer man secrets too. There is a kind and genuinely self-sacrificial sensuality with this guy. He is generous, smart, witty and selfless. One thing in addition to romantic gestures is appreciating – and not taking for granted – his sensuality and depth of spirit. He has a natural connection to the subconscious realms and is more spiritual than almost all of the other signs; soul, beauty, romance, selflessness, and close bonds define his life.
4. Don’t Be A Show Off!
Unlike other signs, such as Aries, Leo and Sagittarius, the Cancer man doesn’t like boastful or ‘in-you-face’ energy. Passion is great and creativity is always encouraged, like a genuine appreciation for music and the arts; but anything over fiery will be a major turn-off.
The key to know about Cancer is that he is feminine in nature, receptive, slightly dreamy, modest and intuitive. The spotlight doesn’t concern him and a very masculine or overpowering female will intimidate him and bring out his insecurities.
Please don’t confuse this for weakness, it isn’t a weakness at all. It is a difference in core programming – true character and the inner self. Loud and fiery women make this man withdraw; you may have heard of the term “crab-like shell?” Well, this is something all people in this sign suffer with from time to time. They withdraw into a crab-like-shell, being ruled by the symbol of the Crab.
Thus, be mindful of your energy and approach. By all means, communicate your passions and experiences, strengths and qualifications. Connect on a real and authentic level, connection is important to him while dominance and ego displays aren’t. The Cancer Full Moon from the 30th December has left him feeling very comfortable in his true self, his home and family-loving self…
5. Stimulate His Mind
In January he will really appreciate his mind being stimulated. This may seem contrary to the previous point, but there is an art skill in communication and intuitive power, knowing what to say, how to say, and all aspects of interaction and body language.
He may be feeling sensitive with a strong aversion to overpowering women, but this doesn’t mean he doesn’t want his mind stimulated.
Connecting intellectually will provide another dimension to his world. He is already sensitive, emotionally open and mature, and spiritually ‘activated,’ so finding ways to blow his mind or at least expand it (with some humility and modesty, of course – no boasting or excessive pride) will inspire him. This is further enhanced due to the Sun being in Aquarius, Aquarius being an air sign with strengths including wit, communication, cognitive and intellectual gifts.
The Cancer sign is deeply intuitive and fascinated by esotericism, metaphysics, culture, healing, holistic and alternative fields, and topics and subjects rooted in physicality – worldly politics and global affairs. Male Cancers are all-rounders, balanced within and open to the spiritual and material aspects of life.

Final Thoughts & Key Astrological Transits
January is a beautiful month for Cancer men with their positive traits and qualities being highlighted. This man is feeling strong and secure in his own being, he ‘knows himself’ and is comfortable with his personality and life. He is looking for a mate with soul, depth, sincerity, and something special about them – and he’s certainly open to commitment!
Finding the balance between fun and play, light-hearted communication, an easy-going attitude, and sophistication, a healthy sense of independence, and the depth he loves, will be key to your success or failure. Superficially doesn’t cut it with this guy. He also needs someone who can match him emotionally, spiritually and creativity – he has a very artistic and imaginative mind.
Be mindful of being overpowering or dominating. If you are an air or fire sign, try to connect to the more feminine and softer sides of your personality this month. You can discover your compatibility here.
