im a cancer and i dissapear from people too.
also i have a virgo girlfreind.
but unlike what this aquarius said, that "the cancer wont consider your emotions"
(personaly i dont know what an aquairius was doing with a cancer to begin with....)
at times in disapearing, a cancer might want to appear to let you know not to be sad, that the point of his or her dissapearing is not to make you upset, but if the cancer will not reapear to do so it is becasue in his or her assesment of his or her emotions he or she has come to the conlusion that his or her emotions must, in this instance of disappearing, come first, for they rarely do otherwise.
i mean, its not easy for us cancers to sit back and let another person hurt becasue of us, and even to let another person go hurting hurts us as well(it hurts us to not nurture) but if the cancer has chosen not to nurture and then dissapears, it is becasue the cancer has decided, well... to let his or herself forget. i mean, i want you to understand that this dissapearing act is a time of much grief for the cancer. but this is what a cancer does. by dissapearing, by detatching himslef he is proving to himslef that he is disciplined. the cancer will willfully subject himself to the pain of not nurturing both yours and his emotions to discipline his mind. this is the decison he has come to becasue the emotion he fealt was too great, and much unbalancing between the mind and soul, so he must detatch from those emotions, no matter how it hurts to do so. it is a great time of spiritual growth, but first he must walk through a great desert of discipline.
my advice as a cancer who disapears from people too, is dissapear yourself for a few more months, dont be afraid of anything!!!! and then after a period of a few moths, maybe a good healthy half a year or so, you can find him again and it will be just like brand new, if u still want it.
so really dont be afraid of time, becasue for a cancer, time works on your side. and no matter what you do dont mess it uP! dont appear in his life premmaturely! you yourself, let youself escape into mytsicism and you will retain yourslef in his mind but if not, like say for instance you text him, thats gonna turn out to be not good for you at all. so go live your life for 6 months or so, have fun and BE HAPPY, and if you are still interetwsted he will be too.
