Number One Reason Cancer Avoids Your Texts

Perhaps you’ve had the following experience…

You’re deeply engrossed in a text conversation with your Cancer man. Everything is going smoothly. You feel your heart fluttering every time a notification clues you in that he’s responded.

You reply to him.

He replies back.

You text him back.

You watch as your phone signals he’s in the process of responding….

But then…


No text.

No reply.

Your hands start to sweat and you try to distract yourself. You put your phone aside and busy yourself with other things, but even an hour, then two hours later, still no answer.

Maybe against your better judgment you send him a few additional texts hoping to jumpstart the conversation again. Still nothing.

What in the world went wrong?

There is nothing more frustrating than a Cancer man who suddenly drops from the conversation, going radio silent.

But his silence may not be caused by what you think. And if you don’t understand why he’s suddenly withdrawn you may make matters worse by trying to reel him back in.

First thing’s first, don’t jump to conclusions.

There are several reasons a Cancer man stops texting you and some of them are completely innocent.

You may need to be patient and adopt his perspective. Yet there is one major reason Cancer men ignore the women who text them.

This is a red flag. A warning sign you need to recognize. If you don’t, you’ll inadvertently end up pushing him away.

Here is a rundown of common reason he ignores your texts as well as the biggest reason he’s ignoring your text (and also the biggest red flag).

Reason #4 - He’s busy with family.

Even in the high tech fast paced constant communication era we live in, a Cancer man is one of the few people who can resist the allure of notifications on his phone.

If he’s spending time with his mother, elders, children, or other family members, don’t expect him to text back. He may not even check his messages during this time.

Cancer is the sign of family and home. His respect of family, especially his mother or mother figure, shows in his refusal to take his attention off of her when he’s visiting or helping her around the house. Don’t mistake this for a personal slight.

He’s not ignoring you.

Understand that even if you marry a Cancer man, he will always drop everything to attend to his family, especially his mother. Don’t compete, but also, don’t take it personally. He’s following his instinctive priorities.

Reason #3 - He’s in a low mood.

Cancers are moody, but you probably know this already. What you may not realize is that Cancer men are highly self-conscious of their moods. If he’s feeling low, he won’t likely want to talk.

If he’s not responding to your text, he may actually be stewing on his deep emotions and insecurities. Perhaps he’s even going so far as to convince himself you’re not serious about him.

That is how far Cancer men will go with mental gymnastics when they are second guessing themselves. Don’t take it personally when he’s in a mood. Chances are, he’ll be bright and cheerful in a few hours or days.

Reason #2 - He doesn’t trust your motives.

Now we are approaching the red flag area. If a Cancer man doesn’t trust your motives, if he feels you’ve played mind games with him, or if he’s suspicious of your intentions, he’ll back off.

This doesn’t mean you did anything “wrong.” But if you have tried to make him jealous or provoke his possessive side, well, the reaction may be more than you expected.

If you’re playing mind games with a Cancer man, expect him to shut down. But if you’re not, give him some space. Show him consistent nurturing and kindness but don’t be confrontational in your effort to get his attention.

Reason #1 - He feels judged by you.

The number one reason a Cancer man hasn’t texted you back is because he likely feels judged by you. Cancer men are among the most sensitive of all the signs.

They need to feel completely and unconditionally loved at all times.

They can be intuitive but also can deceive themselves into misreading your cues.

If you have given him any critique or feedback he may read as a criticism, a Cancer man will sulk. He may feel you are attacking him even when you state a clearly observable fact.

If you have to give a Cancer man feedback that may seem harsh, you’ll do better to cushion the feedback with plenty of praise.

Now that you understand the reasons a Cancer man may be avoiding you, you’ll see it may have more to do with his perception than with anything you said or did.

You’ve got to be careful of a Cancer man’s sensitive nature. He can be easily offended.

If a Cancer man is ignoring your texts, give him some time. Let him work through his moods, then reach out in a friendly, light, and playful way.

And whatever you do, avoid criticizing a Cancer man. Also, never criticize his family, especially his mother.

Even if I knew a lot, this was amazing. And some surprises. Now I know everything about how to handle his
behaviour and it helped me a lot already. Thank you!

“What you do to help people is amazing. Thank you. I never put too much stock in astrology because the usual description of me is so far off the mark for me- but after reading a few things on Him and realizing it fit him to a T, I decided it was time to look more deeply into it. Your book is an amazingly valuable resource.”

Kyra, 45, Aquarius


“Thank you so much for inspiring books! Read them several times. My (potential) scorpio man is amazing... we have connected on such a deep, soul level, but the timing is awkward, difficult. I wanted to gain some insight, largely to know if I should keep going or distance myself. Your books have been really insightful. I only wish I'd read them sooner.”

Alex, 33, Sagittarius


“I recently dated a Scorpio and wanted more insight into this intriguing sign...The way our zodiac signs play a part in our mannerisms and personalities interests me, and understanding what actually makes a Scorpio man tick would be very helpful if I ever encounter another. I’d like to thank you for the incredible insight on the enigmatic Scorpio man. I’ve only recently discovered your guides and I was truly fascinated with your accuracy.”

Evangelina, 46, Scorpio
