Cancer compatibility with other signs

CANCER compatibility with other signs.The zodiac astrology has 12 different signs, each unique when it comes to characteristics, traits, qualities and especially names.  No other name carries as much uniqueness and intensity as Cancer, especially since it is the sign most attributed to feelings, sensitivity and emotions.  Bearing an English translation as “The Crab”, it is known to be a generally feminine sign and one of the most sensitive out of all the signs.

 

CANCER – The Crab

CANCER – Qualities

The Cancer horoscope clearly defines the sign as the most sensitive of all the horoscope zodiac signs.  The signs symbol, which is the Crab, is known to be sensitive to outside forces and is known to retreat to its shell when hurt or bothered by external stimuli.  They are self-protective and are extremely resistant to changes of their environment, probably because of their hard shell exterior.  They can also prove to be quite defensive, and are also known with a “wait and see” attitude.  They tend to be the masters of “trying to blend in”, not wanting to be the center of attention and just try to live in their own little world as much as possible.

 

CANCER – Element of cool Water

As the element of water is known for its unpredictability, Cancer is also well known for being unpredictable when it comes to emotions.  Some bodies of water are also known to be deep, just as the emotions of the sign can also be deep and sometimes longing.

 

CANCER – Mythology

The crab played a very minor but important role in Greek mythology.  It briefly acted as an additional foil sent by the goddess Hera to distract the great hero Hercules during one of the infamous “Twelve Great Labors of Hercules”, specifically during the battle of Hercules with the multiple-headed Hydra.  As a reward, Hera placed the image of the crab in the sky as one of the constellations.

 

CANCER – Governed by the Moon

The moon is characterized in Cancer horoscope today as being associated with an individual’s emotional makeup.  Everything that Cancer is strong at like being overly sensitive, maternal instincts and the inner child of individuals can be attributed to the Moon being the governing planet of Cancerians.  The moon also represents vulnerability, which clearly influences the need for Cancer to sometimes try to live inside its own shell so to speak.

THE CANCER COMPATIBILITY CHART

Astrological compatibility, or Synastry, is a branch of the zodiac astrology dealing with compatibility among the zodiac signs by means of charts.  There are a lot of different factors that contribute to the different compatibilities among the signs, such as the date of birth (which also determines which sign you are born under), position of the governing planets, elements, the cardinal signs etc.  Synastry is also not the only known reliable basis when it comes to compatibility, as there are a lot of different means to determine zodiac sign compatibility.  Generally speaking, The Highest compatible signs for Cancer are: Virgo, Scorpio, Pisces and Taurus.  It is a unique combination of Earth and Water elements (Cancer being a water element by itself).  The lowest compatible signs for Cancer are: Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius, Aries and Gemini.  There are also two signs considered to be variably compatible with Cancer in that they can go both ways (compatible of incompatible): Cancer itself and Capricorn.  Below, you can find a very comprehensive table detailing the compatibilities of Cancer to each sign including its own:

There is also the factor of polarity when it comes to determining the general compatible signs of the zodiac: the positive polarity and the negative polarity.  There are also other factors that can be considered to contribute in determining the compatibility of Cancer to the other signs, such as the elements and the cardinal signs.  Below, you can find a comprehensive chart explaining things further and in detail as well as their comparison and relationship to the Cancer horoscope:

CANCER AGAINST ITSELF

 

CANCER compatibility with Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

COMPATIBILITY – Variable

 

The problem with pairing a horoscope zodiac signs of Cancer is that they have too much in common.  They are both too sensitive, they are both too over protective, they are both too dependent, they can both be easily hurt, and none of them tries to interact with the outside world.  Because emotions play a really big role in the life of a Cancer, it will be no surprise that feelings will take center stage in this relationship.  Both of them need reassurance and coddling, and both of them also want to take the lead when it comes to dominating the relationship.  Their sensitive nature will spell trouble for both of them, clearly because most of the time it will be their overly sensitive nature and strong emotions doing the talking for them, which can be too strong for both of them to handle at the same time.

 

The good thing about them being together is that they understand each other perfectly, and can work with each other to support each other in their emotional trials.  They are known to be very emotionally supportive to other people, and they can certainly understand the need of their significant other for warmth and nurturing.  Moodiness might also be a serious issue, especially since two Cancer moods might result in the constant shifting of emotional stress which might turn into another battle of emotions and sensitivity.  They both have their own little worlds, and because of this none of them will ever make an assertive effort to get integrated in the world around them.

CANCER COMPATIBLE SIGNS

 

CANCER compatibility with Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

COMPATIBILITY – Compatible

Out of all the signs of zodiac, Virgo is said to be the most compatible with Cancer.  Each of these signs loves to dote on one another, and would love to fuss over each other every time an opportunity arises.  The practicality of the Virgo sees that the emotional nature of a Cancerian to be highly acceptable.  Cancer is known to always wait for the perfect moment, which suites the Virgo just fine because they are over-analytical creatures and they are also famous for being the extreme perfectionists.  Because of their relaxed nature and need to blend in, the Cancer doesn’t mind at all that a Virgo can take forever just to make a simple decision.  Oftentimes it works to their advantage, especially since Cancer clearly wants to make sure that all of his or her emotions are in check before sharing a decision with Virgo.  The emotional responses of Cancer coupled with the analytical way of thinking of the Virgo unquestioningly works.  The need of Cancer for security and reassurance is satisfied quite well by the Virgo’s need for to take care and attentive nature.  The goal-oriented Virgo will definitely organize and plan the life of a Cancer, especially since the Cancer will always try to keep his or her emotional tendencies at bay before making any life-altering decisions.  This relationship will surely be filled with passion and love with one another.

 

CANCER compatibility with Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

COMPATIBILITY – Compatible

These two signs are known to be overly passionate, and there could never be any passionate pairing than these two signs put together.  Cancer is known to be overly possessive when it comes to relationships, which will be welcomed with open arms by the Scorpio, who is always dominated by their jealous nature.  The need for attention of the Cancer will never put off the Scorpio, which will view this as a sign of loyalty and neediness that assures the Scorpio even more.  Cancers are also known for their extreme loyalty, another plus for the Scorpio who does not want to fight a jealous bout over other individuals.  In fact, the over-possessiveness of a Cancer will definitely make the Scorpio more secure with the relationship, which will in turn leave them free for passionate and expressive love for each other.  These two signs together can create a magnetic relationship, which is proven true by the fact that they always seem to be attached to one another.  One main thing to consider is the Scorpio’s love for travel, which will definitely put off the need for the Cancer to just sit back and get comfortable without the need for travel and outdoor activities.

 

CANCER compatibility with Pisces (February 20 – March 20)

COMPATIBILITY – Compatible

The zodiac signs Pisces and Cancer both have a very common need: to love and be loved.  This relationship can prove to be very harmonious and symbiotic, because one’s desires are completely given and returned by the other.  They also work well together because they tend to feed each other’s ego.  Pisces is known to be very imaginative when it comes to dreaming, and Cancer is very good in putting imagination to his actions, so the two of them together is destined to create imaginative things.  Being dominated by the elements of water and both sharing characteristics of being water creatures, they tend to feel deeply than most, and can definitely connect on a very deep level when it comes to emotions.  They are both very emotional and intensely devoted which will clearly pave the way to a deep and fruitful relationship without any complications and excess.

 

CANCER compatibility with Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

COMPATIBILITY – Compatible

The need for security and stability is what a Taurus needs in a relationship, one which will be provided for fully by a Cancer.  Taureans are natural comfort seekers and creatures of extreme habit, which can easily be provided by the Cancerians’ need to provide reassurances and are also overly nurturing in nature.  They also both enjoy the delights of staying exactly where they are, usually at the comforts of their home, as the need for constant grazing by the Taurus is complemented by the over-protective nature of the Cancer.  The only problem that they might encounter is that both signs of zodiac can be very possessive and stubborn.  This may seem to play on both of their strengths, but may seem over the top when emotions start to run a little higher than usual.

 

 

CANCER INCOMPATIBLE SIGNS

 

CANCER compatibility with Leo (July 23 – August 22)

COMPATIBILITY –Incompatible

One has an extremely sunny disposition while the other has mood swings as often as the clock hand moves.  This is an extremely difficult relationship to work with, especially since the Leo is considered to be very flamboyant, needs dominance and is very extroverted which are all of the things that a Cancer might consider off putting and weird.  Leo might find comfort with the need for a Cancer to overwhelm him or her with a lot of flattery and admiration, but that will be short-lived by the strong emotions and proud nature of Leo which might prove to be too much for a Cancer to handle effectively.  Cancer will never agree with the constant need of Leo to seek approval and attention from other people, as a Cancer really needs none of those things.

 

CANCER compatibility with Libra (September 23 – October 22)

COMPATIBILITY – Incompatible

These two horoscope zodiac signs work on entirely different temperament and levels.  A Cancer is heavily dominated by their emotions, while Libra needs intellectual stimulations.  Libra can often be cold and calculating, which can be viewed by the Cancer as lack of care and understanding.  Libra also needs a lot of outside and external stimulation, one that any Cancer doesn’t need and would just prefer the quite comforts of their own home to relax.  Libra also has trouble dealing with the possessiveness of a Cancer, often times viewing it as a shackle to their free nature.  The need for any Libran to seek attention from friends will leave the Cancer feeling hurt and insecure, which might oftentimes hamper the relationship.

 

CANCER compatibility with Sagittarius (November 22 – December 1)

COMPATIBILITY – Incompatible

Sagittarius can be very blunt and tactless, traits that can sometimes lead the Cancer to get hurt due to their over-sensitive nature.  Sagittarius is also very flighty in nature, which will more often than not leave the Cancer feeling hurt and wanting for attention and affection.  A Sagittarius will stir the imaginative cogs in the brain of a Cancer, but will often be too impatient to deal with the emotional mood swings of the moody Cancer.  Sagittarius is also very faithless, and will never provide the security and love that a Cancer is looking for.  Sagittarius also loves to wander and explore, while Cancer will always and forever be home bodies.  Also, the over-possessiveness of Cancer will prove to be too much for a Sagittarius, and will result in the latter needing to get away especially from a very needy commitment that a Cancer needs and wants.

 

CANCER compatibility with Aquarius (January 20 – February 19)

COMPATIBILITY – Incompatible

The constant need for unpredictability is what drives a Cancer away, because they are very close-guarded and cautious creatures.  Aquarians are known to be quick-thinkers, often times acting on impulse without thinking about the consequences that might come after, which will leave a Cancerian screaming in horror.  Aquarians are also known to be loner, in that they prefer to deal with any situation alone; while a Cancer is always in need to closeness and constant warmth in a relationship.  The need for emotional detachment and emptiness of the Aquarian will never be understood by the Cancerian.  It is also important to note that the Aquarius is the complete opposite of the Cancer, which is why they react to each other this way.

 

CANCER compatibility with Aries (March 21 – April 20)

COMPATIBILITY – Incompatible

These two signs have too many temperamental problems to begin with.  Aries needs freedom to explore new things and new experiences, while Cancer will never understand the need to be one with nature and is very resistant to change.  Aries is very strong and aggressive, which will more often than not hurt the feelings of a very sensitive Cancer.  Aries is also known to have a very playful nature, which will definitely inflame the jealous nature of a Cancer.

 

CANCER compatibility with Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

COMPATIBILITY – Incompatible

Gemini will always be busy with other things, which is why a Cancer will always feel neglected.  Gemini is also known to be very unsettled and flighty, one trait that will not sit well with the possessive nature of a Cancer.  The emotional level of the zodiac signs also play a very crucial role in the relationship, because while Cancer can be very deep, Gemini likes to keep things on the surface level, and will not appreciate the need for emotional connection that a Cancer needs to feel secure and safe.  Gemini also believes in exercising flexibility in their lives, a trait that will never be understood by the overly careful Cancer.

CANCER VARIABLY COMPATIBLE SIGNS

 

CANCER compatibility with Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

COMPATIBILITY – Variable

These two signs are proof that even though they are almost complete opposites of each other they might still make it work.  Capricorn is overly ambitious, and might not find the time to give a Cancer all of the attention and nurturing that it needs.  They do have a lot in common, which is probably why it is still possible to make these signs work together.  Although completely different when it comes to temperament, both of them strongly need reassurance, albeit in very different ways – one is for the benefit of career and one is to feel loved and important.  They also both can be very complementary to each other or they can be extremely competitive with one another.
