"Aries Girl" and her Cancer Best Friend

By November 5, 2013

Follow me on:

Here's some valuable intel, from a fire sign, whose bestie is a water sign. It's a great observation, since Aries is a direct "what you see is what you get" cardinal sign, and Cancer tends to come into relationships sideways -- like a crab.

"Aries Girl" shares her Aries-Cancer story: Well, my experience is a friendship one. My best friend is a Cancer. At the beginning I swear I couldn't stand her, too sensitive for me..and I felt like she wasn't being herself when she was with me, it was a strange feeling and I didn't like it. But then after like a year, we started to get close...and she started opening up to me, and showing her real self and well, that's when we started getting close. Then I started considering her my best friend, and I started telling her everything, as the Aries I am (we love sharing things with our best friends). Of course we fight because of our many differences, but we always make up."

The Aries-Cancer combo has loomed large in my life, and this story reminds me of a college friend, an Aries. There were times when she was visibly annoyed with my sensitivity, and times when I found her abrasive.

"Aries Girl's" story tells the Aries side -- that a Moonchild can seem like their hiding their "real Self." I can imagine then that it's harder to trust the friendship, for the Aries who thrives on active, forceful engagement. Here we see one of astrology's gifts, which is to help us understand, and even love, those whose natures are so very different than our own.

Funny hearing that, since my best friend is also a Cancer. First I thought she was a bit of a bore with her steady and stable energies, but luckily I realized what a jewel I have found. My Cancer friend has changed me for the better by teaching how to be a great friend. I love her dearly.

Sweet comment Miss Aries. My bestie Aries in college had a Cancer Moon which is an important part of the story. And I have Aries lessons in this life — those of creative courage and being myself, even if it provokes a forceful reaction in others. Aries’ people have been big teachers for me, too. One in particular, my Leo friend with Aries Moon ‘saved my life’ by boldly jarring me out of holding on to a broken heart. She did it with love, though it was with a lot of blunt directness….
