Sun Love Matches
Once again, Cancer can be idealistic. He's looking for the white picket fence and all the trimmings — a perfect wife, mother, lover, cook, and domestic live-in who will be affectionate with him always. Cancer simply doesn't like to fight. If he's involved with a person with many planets in Fire, he may choose to run instead. Also, he feels his way through the world, so an Air sign, or someone who rationalizes too much and bursts his idealistic bubble, will not be the one to capture his heart. Read on to learn about the love compatibility pairs with the female Crab.
These two are both romantic, and they know how to give the other the emotional support each craves. Though they tend to be possessive with each other, the problems incurred seem to cancel each other out. In other words, these two mix well. In bed, they have the same style, though both secretly would like to dominate. To others, they appear to be soul mates. If one of the two doesn't have too much Air or Earth, this can be a very passionate, dramatic relationship. Should they find a way to be honest in their love and to trust each other deeply, this can be a probable long-term relationship, with a good chance for marriage.
No other sign in the zodiac knows how to give a good compliment like Cancer woman — and Leo man just eats this up. She's deep and emotional, and he finds that strangely affecting. She understands him and lets him know it. But he's actually not sure if he can trust her. He doesn't quite get her pulling back from him — and when she does it, he does it too. This can be confusing to both. But when Leo man gets insecure about the relationship, Cancer knows just how to come back and make him feel good again. In bed, Leo man is able to open Cancer up and make her purr. This can be a possible long-term partnership and a possible marriage.
Cancer and Leo can bring out the best in one another, as long as Cancer is honest about her feelings without getting too emotional. This way, Leo still has room to breathe.
Cancer woman tolerates Virgo man to a point. But she wants more romance from him — more candlelight, more music, more wine, and a clearer demonstration of feelings. She knows he's crazy about her. Why doesn't he show it more? And why does he have to analyze every point? In fact, he repeats himself. Cancer gets the feeling he does it just to hear himself talk. Though she's able to soothe his ego, she sometimes gets annoyed when he's critical or judgmental, and at these times she's not liable to feel like giving him that extra attention. Cancer and Virgo both like sex, though Cancer wishes he would admit it and give in to his base desires. She sometimes wonders if Virgo is really in the moment or somewhere else. If Virgo can open up to Cancer woman, this can be a possible long-term relationship, though it's not a probable marriage.
Cancers have incredible influence over the general public. How they choose to use this power is up to them. Famous Crabs with this kind of charisma include Princess Diana, the Dalai Lama, P. T. Barnum, Ross Perot, Nancy Reagan, Frida Kahlo, and John Quincy Adams.
When they actually get around to talking about the rapport they have together, Libra and Cancer find they have a lot in common. Unfortunately, the two keep beating around the bush, and the problems can mount when they're both purposely avoiding confrontation. Cancer senses when Libra is unhappy, and the two can really affect each other, producing strange and powerful up-and-down mood swings. Instinctively, Cancer woman knows how to stroke Libra's libido. He sees her as the perfect woman and mother figure. In bed, Libra may seem a bit distant for Cancer. One time he's a passionate whirlwind. and the next he's as cold as an iceberg. Cancer wishes she could repair the sometimes-dark side of Libra's soul and make him think more idealistically and less rationally. This drives her crazy. If Libra can feel a little more, this can be a possible long-term relationship, but it is not a probable marriage.
This may be the best combination for Cancer woman. If she can overlook his political views and deal with his stress periods from work, the two can be a match made in heaven. Sexually, dark Scorpio will subtly convince Cancer to take charge. She'll do it with gusto and the two of them in bed find exactly what they're looking for. These two are also incredibly dramatic. Scorpio wants Cancer to prove she's trustworthy. Cancer is able to do that once she sees she can trust him. This is a probable long-term relationship with an excellent chance for marriage as well.
Though Cancer is a bit more outgoing than Scorpio man, both are more than content to stay home, just the two of them, eating, watching television, or making love all evening.
This is a classic case of opposites that really do attract. Sagittarius man is very different from Cancer woman, yet they seem to be good for each other. In fact, Sagittarius man is able to give Cancer woman a good boost of energetic power. She'll love the outings and adventures he takes her on. She's fascinated and warmed by the fact that he's so good at everything he does. And Sagittarius thinks Cancer woman is great; he respects her. Cancer woman finds in bed a sexual partner who can please her and make her feel loved. If Sagittarius can be faithful and let Cancer woman rule his domain, this can be a very possible long-term relationship, with a good chance for marriage.
When you think of Sagittarius men, think “different.” Woody Allen, Mark Twain, Steven Spielberg, Beethoven, and Walt Disney are good examples of the Archer's famous imagination.
Cancer woman finds Capricorn man a stickler for so many things. Why can't he loosen up a little? In truth, either the two will see life completely through rose-colored glasses, or Capricorn will simply burst Cancer's romantic, visionary bubble (depending on Capricorn's other signs). Thank goodness he's faithful. Cancer loves this about him and also that he can be a rock for her — one she knows she can always lean on. Unfortunately, bed and sexuality may be a bit of a problem. Capricorn can be more practical than Cancer. If he can open up a little, he may just be able to tap into her hidden sensual, sexual energies. If Capricorn can learn to lighten up a little, these two can find a possible long-term thing together. Still, they are not a probable marriage.
Cancer woman is intrigued by Aquarius man. He's sexy, and he's out there. Together, these two can become wanderlust bohemians. He brings out her spiritual side. They're also both incredibly intuitive. However, both can be deceptive — especially Cancer woman when she wants to be. This bothers Aquarius, who sees himself as straightforward. Then again, he's able to wait out Cancer's push-and-pull techniques. Aquarius, in bed, likes it rougher than Cancer. Instead, she wonders if he's able to stay with her and only her. These two excite each other mentally, though, and they really can talk the night through about every subject in the world. This could be a possible long-term relationship, and a possible marriage beyond that.
Pisces man intrigues Cancer woman. She has all the time in the world to get to know him and will give her best effort in doing so. Romantically and emotionally, the Fish is perfect for the Crab. The only problem here can be with “push-pull” on both parts — when angry, she crawls and he swims away. Also, Pisces man may or may not be the financial breadwinner Cancer hopes for. However, this doesn't make much difference. Cancer is wowed by Pisces' intuition and creativity. Soft, slow, romantic, and passionate sex heats up the rapport in bed. If Pisces can give in to Cancer's nurturing instinct, this can be a probable long-term relationship with a good chance for marriage.
Both Cancer woman and Pisces man see things the same way and work to create a perfect home atmosphere. Probably, they both want children.
Aries man conquers Cancer's heart. He woos her, makes her feel special, and spoils her. Predictably, she gets hooked on the Ram. Even when he begins looking around at others, she tries to turn a blind eye to his flirtatious side. In bed, he knows how to tap into her creative energies. Lovemaking becomes a wild ride for both of them — adventurous, passionate, and even a little kinky. Aries man also loves when Cancer dotes on him. If she's strong enough to let him wander off with friends into his social habitat, he'll always come back to her. But this takes a lot of will power for Cancer woman. If she can do it, this can be a possible long-term thing, with marriage possible.
With Taurus, Cancer knows she'll be taken care of. She relies on him and likes the feeling of security he gives her. She doesn't expect him to be unfaithful — and, most likely, he won't be. Cancer is much wiser than Taurus in the way of people and the world. Even so, he absolutely won't listen to her advice, and it gets him into a lot of trouble. In bed, Taurus has all the sensual moves Cancer craves. However, she may be a bit shy with him in the beginning — he wishes she'd just tell him what she wants. If the two can let go of emotional doubts and fears of the past, this can be a possible long-term relationship. It's also a possible marriage (but not a likely one).
As far as what the Bull is looking for in a wife and mother, Cancer woman fits the old-fashioned bill perfectly. Unfortunately, the games between them mount up if they're not careful. Both move at a slow pace and are given to sidestepping conflict.
Both are open-minded, curious, and outgoing. Though this is always true of Gemini, Cancer is only bubbly when she feels like it. Many times, in fact, Cancer would prefer a quiet candlelit dinner at home, while Gemini has other plans. He wants to go out and show off his lady love to others. Also, Gemini tells fibs here and there. Cancer, though, knows just how to play him right — if there's anyone who can get him to confess, it's the Crab. Creatively, these two spur each other on. In bed, their styles vary greatly, and Gemini would prefer to go faster and change positions more frequently. To Cancer, this starts feeling like sexual gymnastics — all the moves and none of the emotions. If Gemini man has some Water or a lot of Fire in his chart, this combo may work. If not, this is a possible long-term thing, but it's not a probable marriage.
What do you get when you combine a Gemini and Cancer together?
You get a Gemini/Cancer cusp. Here you have Air and Water, thinking and feeling, mutable and cardinal signs. People with this cusp include Meryl Streep, Errol Flynn, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Cyndi Lauper.
