Zodiac Sign Cancer Love Match – The Crab in Relationships

In love and other relationships, Cancer is most caring and protective. Like a nursery. Some people love that, and some don’t. The ones who do will want it to go on forever. That’s also Cancer’s intention.


Who Wants Cancer’s Devotion?

Compatibility with other Star Signs depends on much more than similarities. Cancer, the benevolent of the Zodiac, belongs to the element water, which is that of emotions. So do Scorpio and Pisces, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Cancer is particularly compatible with them – they need to feel mutual attraction, which is something elusive at times.

Nor for that matter is Cancer always incompatible with, say, the fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, although they are quite different. Actually, differences are important in a relationship. If there are few of them, both will be bored with one another.

That’s the most evident when the astrological qualities – cardinal, fixed, and mutable – are compared. Each Zodiac sign has one of those qualities. Cancer in cardinal, which means leading, even rather bossy or controlling. Cancer is sure to know what’s best and will insist on it. That doesn’t blend well with other cardinal signs in a relationship. They are Aries, Libra, and Capricorn. None of them is that compatible with Cancer, since there will be a rivalry of leadership. Two strong wills often collide.

Cancer is much more compatible with the mutable signs, which are the followers of the Zodiac. They are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Such a relationship, with one leader and one follower, is at least mostly smooth. But of course, there can be other issues. Sagittarius, for example, is not that fond of being protected if it means limited freedom.

With the fixed signs, uneager or slow to change, things can get complicated with Cancer if the two don’t agree on most things from the start. If they do, it’s a match made in heaven. If not, the two may sooner or later find that they are incompatible. The fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.

But nothing is written in stone. A relationship is complex. There is no guarantee as to what will work and what will not, especially at length. All the personality traits of each Zodiac sign have to be considered when examining their compatibility in astrology.

Cancer Compatibility in General

Generally speaking, Cancer is the motherly protector, also in a relationship. Cancer needs to feel like the one who protects and deepens the love, whether that is true or not. Usually it is.

A relationship with Cancer is like going back to the protected life of childhood. Some people like it, some not. Cancer insists on it, whatever the partner has to say about it. But it’s sweet and comforting, so many have no objection.

The feelings are warm and Cancer can be trusted not to hurt them in any way – as long as the partner accepts who decides what’s best for them and what’s not.

– Hi. Here at zodiacsignastrology.org, we’re talking about zodiac compatibility. And, today, we’re talking about the Crab. Yes, that’s the moon sign and that’s the sign of Cancer. The sign of Cancer is a water sign. The element is water. And, so, we think of fluidity of emotions and intuition and just understanding the whole idea of feelings in a relationship.

The Cancerian, if you want to capture them, you, too, will have to be able to not only express your emotions, but also to adhere to their emotions. They can be a little bit needy. When they’re not feeling very good, or they’re kind of feeling blue, then they’re going to want to cuddle up, watch some sappy movies and eat some ice cream. If you’re willing to do all of those nice, homey, cozy things, then a Cancerian is the one for you when it comes to love.

The zodiac compatibility means, with the Cancer, is that they are willing to open up their heart and allow love to come in. Now, on the shadow side, if this Cancerian has had some bumpy roads, and their heart has been broken many times, they can be just like the crab, the shell and hardened on the outside, but soft on the inside. So, it might take some getting used to the Cancerian, the Cancer zodiac sign and their compatibility in love, because they might be a hard nut to crack.

They need to be able to feel safe with the person that they’re with. So, they can be a little bit cautious and shy at the beginning. So, they, too, are a little bit slow, kind of walking in sideways like a crab into the relationship, but once you’ve captured the heart of a Cancernian and they can trust their heart in your hands, you’ve got them for life.

They love children, they their home, they love coziness, they like long walks on the beach. They love the water. So, if you’re a Cancerian yourself, and you find yourself being a little bit on the emotional side, it’s okay, because that is what love is all about. Really, isn’t it? It’s about allowing your vulnerability with your emotions and trusting that one special person who will take care of you on an emotional level. So, the Cancer compatibility, the zodiac compatibility, here at zodiacsignastrology.org is not just about trust, but it’s also the difference is very important to them in relationships, because they want to cater, they want to care for you and they want to be a caregiver.

So, normally, they are attracted to people who are in need of care, and that does prove to be a difference in personality levels. They have a lot of patience, a ton of patience because of their caring and their compassionate nature. So, if you’re a Cancer, or you want to reel in that Cancer, bring in the boat, so to speak, then you’re gonna have to be patient, you’re gonna have to be trustworthy, and you’re gonna have to take very good care of their feelings and their heart.
