CANCER

CANCER IN LOVE: This is the Zodiac sign most fueled by their own emotional ebbs and flows.  They are reflective and idealistic.  When in love, they’ve found a partner that matches their inner ideal of what the partner should be.  They will take a slow, sideways approach to their love interest, feeling their way before making any declarations of love.  They must feel safe and that feelings are reciprocated before making any big jumps.  Once in love, they are nurturing and protective of their loved one’s heart.  Affectionate to the ones they love, the Cancer is excellent at intuitively knowing what the other needs.

CANCER EXPECTATIONS IN LOVE:  The Cancer likes to have the partner around.  At home, or out and about.  They enjoy the grounding of physical closeness with their loved one.  They tend to attract strong partners, who have a steady emotional nature.  They need to know the partner will be there if they should have a typical Cancerian moody moment.  Safety and security is very important to the Cancer, as well as the acceptance of the times that she needs to turn inward and have quiet alone time.

CANCER BIGGEST SECRET:  That the emotional moodiness or neediness that sometimes overtakes them will drive away their partner.  That this most vulnerable part of who they are will be the thing that is ultimately unlovable.

WHAT WILL INITIALLY ATTRACT OR REPULSE THESE SUN SIGNS 

This is a meeting of two who will nurture and care for one another, emotional closeness and depth will pull them together.  A sense they’ve come home.

LONG TERM INTERACTION

This is a cozy, insular relationship.  There may be issues of the individuals feeling slightly smothered, even though we’re dealing with two crabs here.  There may be an issue with who is doing the nurturing and who’s being nurtured.

Conflict: emotional up and downs , intensity, home bodies (not really a bad thing) but may lack the impetus to go try something new.

Leo is ruled by the sun and cancer is ruled by the moon.  There is a dynamic yin/yang energy between these two signs.

LONG TERM INTERACTION

Cancer’s times of moodiness don’t sit well with Leo.  Why isn’t she giving me the admiration and attention I need?  He will do his best to bring her out of the shadows.  Cancer will feel loved when Leo gives his warmth to light her up while feeling down, but also feels misunderstood when she simply needs alone time and isn’t trying to hurt Leo’s feelings.  It’s not all about Leo.

Conflict: introverted feeling vs extroverted feeling

Both water signs and used to dealing with the deep waters of emotion and the themes of human feelings in all their scary forms. Both desire security and possession or being possessed.

A very harmonious long term connection, although it will be passionate and full of feelings.  Deep waters, deep love, deep connection.  Powerful sex that will unite the heart, the soul and the body.

HOW OTHERS SEE THE PARTNERSHIP

Intense, connected and very private.


CANCER & SAGITTARIUS

WHAT WILL INITIALLY ATTRACT OR REPULSE THESE SUN SIGNS

Interesting mix, I instantly sense a distrust from Cancer to Sadge.  The need for security that Cancer holds dear, is no where in the vocabulary of the risk-taking, gambling sadge.  But Sadge is ever the optimist and thinks he can fix her!

LONG TERM INTERACTION

Sadge never says never, they are always ready to try again and with Cancer this is a trait he will need to use often.  He is an optimist and Cancer is a pessimist or at least a realist.  She knows what happens when the other shoe drops.  His flightiness will worry her, and she won’t feel like he’s solid enough for her to build her emotional house upon, which will dash his optimist identity.

SPECIFIC AREAS OF CONFLICT & HARMONY

Conflict: optimist vs pessimist  Harmony: he feels like he can lift her out of her low moods, she feels his passionate expansiveness as hopeful

HOW OTHERS SEE THE PARTNERSHIP

Short-term and like a lot of misplaced work


CANCER & CAPRICORN

WHAT WILL INITIALLY ATTRACT OR REPULSE THESE SUN SIGNS

Opposites, so we have attraction.  Capricorn represents the father, Cancer represents the mother.  The meeting of the outer world and the inner.  Both will have specific roles to fulfill that will resonate perfectly with who they each are as individuals.

LONG TERM INTERACTION

Quite harmonious.  Home, work life balance.  These two would be the could that might have a big family.  Capricorn Dad heading off to work, Cancer Mom staying home to care for the kids.  Leave it to Beaver style to the extreme.  If male Cancer and female Capricorn there could be a little confusion about roles. 

SPECIFIC AREAS OF CONFLICT & HARMONY

Conflict: Capricorn can sometimes make decisions without Cancer’s input, Cancer can sometimes be more emotional than Capricorn can handle.

HOW OTHERS SEE THE PARTNERSHIP

Leave it to Beaver, or very traditional.  Yin/yang


CANCER & AQUARIUS

WHAT WILL INITIALLY ATTRACT OR REPULSE THESE SUN SIGNS

Perhaps the fact that they come from different planets will strike Aqua’s curiosity.  What makes this Cancer so emotional.  Cancer will wonder how Aqua is able to flit through life with nothing but his own ideals to guide him.  Security vs Freedom.

LONG TERM INTERACTION

This relationship will not be long term unless that Aquarius has some water or earth on his Moon, Rising or Venus.  The Cancer will teach Aquarius about the freedom that comes from belonging.  Aqua will teach Cancer to let go.  So long as she can return quickly, things will be ok.

SPECIFIC AREAS OF CONFLICT & HARMONY

Conflict:  security vs freedom, very different fundamental ways of operating, Cancer wants to build safety and Aqua wants to break down the structures that we’ve been told are safe Harmony:  cancer may create home for the wanderer, and Aquarius may give Cancer a taste of adventure.

HOW OTHERS SEE THE PARTNERSHIP

Interesting, erratic and bizarre mix


CANCER & PISCES

WHAT WILL INITIALLY ATTRACT OR REPULSE THESE SUN SIGNS

These two will protect and nurture each other’s hearts.  A natural match.

LONG TERM INTERACTION

These two will be together a long time, especially if the moons agree.  A deep soulful merge of two people who operate with a high degree of emotional intelligence.  Biggest issue is if one partner is keeping their true feelings hidden.  Look to the Moons…if they are in conflict, this mix will not work.

SPECIFIC AREAS OF CONFLICT & HARMONY

Conflict: could be too emotional, decisions may be made purely on feeling and without thought. The couple could be too sensitive to other’s opinions of their relationship Harmony: but mostly this is a harmonious coupling.  Heartfelt, sentimental connection.  Love notes, foot rubs, very affectionate, hand holding etc

HOW OTHERS SEE THE PARTNERSHIP

Soulmates or at least wonderful partners
