Cancer Compatibility: Which Zodiac sign should you fall in love with?

Cancer Compatibility

With the ruler planet being Moon, the god of Emotions, Cancer cannot help being sensitive. They feel everything very deeply. That is the reason they do not trust people easily. And once they do, they are in it for the long haul and readily commit to their partner. They like to have a security blanket around that would ensure that the relationship is a success.

People native to the Zodiac Cancer, are very loyal, dependent, and also infamous for their temper. They sometimes seem to be clingy, but usually give their partners the space and freedom they desire. Also, Cancer loves their family and showers the same respect towards their partner’s family.

Get the fireworks, they are here!

Cancer and Scorpio make a very yin-yang couple – one filling in for the other’s shortcomings. They usually meet due to a strong physical attraction, and later on their strong passion keeps them closer to each other. They both are Water signs and are very deep, each having a different and bolder personality inside a cocoon. And when they come together, they not only understand each other perfectly, but also help each other in mutual growth. People under Cancer are born-nurturers and Scorpio likes the attention they get from their partner.

They both desire emotional security which works in their favor. They are deeply connected and it makes for a strong relationship. The only problem they ever have is when Cancer gives his/her family a bit more time which makes Scorpio jealous, which in fact is enjoyed by Cancer. Also, Scorpio has a habit of keeping secrets while Cancer is an open and honest book. But when they focus attention on each other or something they both love to do, there is no stopping them. They both show the other a side of emotions that the latter was earlier unaware of. Cancer assures its Scorpio partner that it is okay to feel, while Scorpio teaches Cancer to seek a deeper meaning and perspective of their surroundings. Together they are one dynamic couple.

A jigsaw puzzle – but oh, what relief when they fit!

This couple harbors positivity so contagious that they influence everyone they come across with their strong relationship. Cancer brings practicality and Pisces brings creativity and spirituality. They have different views on standards of life – Cancer loving the comfort of a well-furnished home, while Pisces looking for simplicity. They are both very intuitive and receptive, and like to help anyone who needs it. Whatever Cancer initiates, Pisces completes. They both believe in having an emotional connection rather than a materialistic one.

Pisces is more of a freedom-loving person, while Cancer can be possessive at times. If they both can work out a plan to avoid suffocating each other, they will have absolutely no qualms between them. Their relationship is more like a teacher and a student, where both have a lot to share with another. They create a divine, welcoming, and warm home, one that they both are happy to share and cherish.

Cancer (21st June – 22nd July) and Virgo (23rd August – 22nd September)

One talks, one listens, perfect setup!

There are two simple things that can solve all problems between a couple – care and communication. Cancer excels in taking care and loving its partner, and Virgo in proper communication. Also, while a Virgo loves to chat, a person from Cancer sign is a very good listener, and thus the relationship already has a strong and stable foundation. Cancer wavers a lot in decision making and also in behavior, but thanks to Virgo’s adaptable nature, their relationship doesn’t suffer from smaller hindrances. They both love the comfort brought on by hard work, and have morals and principles that they adhere to strictly.

Virgo is an observer, and has a habit of pointing out the good, the bad and the ugly! This might not take well with Cancer’s sensitive nature. They can only find a middle ground if Cancer understands that Virgo is only trying to make them better. Also, Virgo needs to understand that talking to Cancer requires a softer tone than otherwise necessary.  The intimacy and intensity that these two have and enjoy in their relationship is very rare and unique. Their compatibility is enough to make a few people utterly jealous and wanting to have the same thing!

Other Pairings (At their own risk!)

A relationship between Cancer and Aquarius does not bode well for anyone. They are the opposites that better not attract each other. While Aquarius is spontaneous and adventurous, Cancer loves stability. Aquarius loves change; Cancer abhors it. The former is a free-soul, while the latter depends on their partner a lot. They hardly have anything in common to sustain a relationship of any kind.

Another sun sign that does not go well with Cancer is Libra. They might have a good start, but as time passes, they realize that they want separate things from the relationship. Libra seeks an intellectual and mental connection, while Cancer is looking for emotional fulfillment. They both want a harmonious existence, but Cancer’s indecisiveness and mood swings make it difficult for Libra to accept the partnership. At the most, these two can be friends, not the one you call at 3 am in the night, but the one who you generally meet in a group.

Cancer is somewhat compatible with Capricorn and Leo, and can be good friends with them. But a long-term committed relationship between them is not nearly possible. They do share some interests and characteristics, but their basic nature goes against them.

I was introduced to the magical world of books by my parents. Foundation was laid on by Enid Blyton and I grew up surrounded by Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Virginia Woolf and many other classic authors. Although I graduated in Tax Laws, writing has always been a passion. And I am the few lucky ones who have been successful in making their passion a career. Apart from reading and writing, I love food, cooking as well as eating. I spend my weekends looking for new places to enjoy delectable delicacies. I also like to take up some DIY projects now and then. I live by the mantra, “everything can be solved by a notebook, a pen and a cup of tea.” Twitter: @suebansbook
