CANCER AND ARIES
These two may start out like a house on fire, but it won't take
long for the fire to burn out. Aries's venturesome spirit and
wandering eye inflame Cancer's jealousy. And Cancer is too easily
hurt by Aries's aggressiveness and sharp tongue. Cancer likes
security and domesticity; Aries needs freedom to explore new
worlds. Cancer wants to cherish and protect a lover, an attitude
that Aries finds too claustrophobic. Both like money, but Aries
wants to spend it and Cancer wants to keep it. Too many
temperamental problems here.
CANCER AND TAURUS
Both need security and a sense of permanence, and both are
loving, affectionate, and passionate as well. Cancer adds a dash
of imagination to Taurus's otherwise staid approach to sex.
Taurus is possessive and that's just fine with clinging Cancer.
Both are acquisitive moneymakers, and together they enjoy the
delights of hearth and home. Taurus likes being catered to, and
Cancer is the one to do it. Steady-going Taurus is also good for
Cancer's moodiness. What each needs the other supplies.
CANCER AND GEMINI
Gemini's sparkle immediately intrigues Cancer, but Cancer won't
find security with fickle, fly-by-night Gemini. Basically,
Cancer's nature is emotional and Gemini's is cerebral, and that
makes it difficult for them to understand each other. Although
sexual energies are well matched, Cancer will have a hard time
adjusting to Gemini's playful, nonchalant attitude toward love.
Possessive Cancer will try to keep Gemini hemmed in, and Gemini
can't abide that. It's a short countdown to the finish.
CANCER AND CANCER
They have a lot in common, and that's the trouble. They
understand each other perfectly and can wound each other without
even trying. Both are too sensitive, too demanding, too
dependent. Cancers are obsessively concerned with their emotional
psyches: Each needs an enormous amount of attention, coddling,
and reassurance, and resents the other for not giving enough. On
the plus side, they're sensual bedmates whose erotic imaginations
are sparked by each other. But that's rarely enough. This
treadmill goes nowhere.
CANCER AND LEO
Cancer has to get used to Leo's extroverted exuberance.
Otherwise, generous, openhearted, strong Leo is just what
insecure Cancer is looking for Cancer's marvelous intuitions tell
It exactly how to handle proud and flamboyant Leo. Admiration and
a lot of flattery are what are needed to keep Leo purring with
contentment. Leo is domineering in the bedroom and a little too
forthright sexually for Cancer. But Leo's sunny disposition is a
wonderful antidote for Cancer's moodiness.
CANCER AND VIRGO
Cancer's responses are emotive while Virgo's are analytical, but
their personalities mesh so well that it doesn't seem to matter.
Cancer may have to warm up Virgo a little, but there is fire
under the ice. This can turn into a secure, comfortable, and
affectionate relationship. Cancer's struggle for financial
security works perfectly with goal-oriented Virgo. Cancer
understands Virgo's fussy ways, and steady Virgo helps balance
variable Cancer. Cancer's dependency neatly complements Virgo's
need to protect, and each is anxious to please the other..
CANCER AND LIBRA
This pair operates on entirely different levels: Cancer wants
love to be emotionally transcendent, Libra seeks perfect
intellectual communion. Libra has no sympathy for Cancer's moods,
and Cancer is made insecure by Libra's detachment and shallow
emotions. Cancer is too temperamental and possessive for airy
Libra. They have a hard time establishing real sexual rapport,
and that exasperates Cancer. They both love a beautiful home, but
Libra also needs parties and people and outside pleasures. When
Cancer turns critical, especially about Libra's extravagance,
Libra starts looking elsewhere.
CANCER AND SCORPIO
Cancer's sensuality is ignited by Scorpio's dynamic passions, and
because Cancer is loyal, Scorpio's jealousy isn't provoked.
Cancer's possessiveness will actually make Scorpio feel secure.
Cancer admires Scorpio's strength while Scorpio finds a haven in
Cancer's emotional commitment. Both are extremely intuitive and
sense what will please the other. Together they can build a happy
cocoon where they feel safe and loved. This relationship has
great intimacy, intensity, and depth. Things just get better all
CANCER AND SAGITTARIUS
Outgoing Sagittarius can open intellectual vistas for imaginative
Cancer, but unfortunately Sagittarius won't give Cancer the
security in love that it always needs. Cancer's jealousy is
aroused by Sagittarius's flighty, faithless ways; Sagittarius is
bored by Cancer's dependency. Sagittarius likes to wander, while
Cancer is a stay-at-home. Cancer's commitment to total
togetherness only makes Sagittarius desperate to get away. In
addition, outspoken Sagittarius's bluntness continually wounds
sensitive Cancer. Better friends than lovers.
CANCER AND CAPRICORN
There's an initial sexual attraction because they are a polarity
in the zodiac. If they can overcome their opposites in
temperament, they can make a winning combination. But
career-oriented Capricorn has too many other interests to give
Cancer all the attention it needs. Cancer is shy, sensitive, and
needs affection, while Capricorn is brusque, aloof, and
domineering. Cancer takes Capricorn's reserve as a personal
rebuff, and becomes moody and critical. The differences may prove
too great for long-term happiness.
CANCER AND AQUARIUS
Cancer's warm, responsive nature is chilled by Aquarius's cool
self-possession. In turn, Cancer's clinging, cloying
demonstrativeness makes Aquarius feel hemmed in. Aquarius is
quick-minded, unpredictable, apt to be impatient with cautious,
hesitant Cancer. And thin-skinned Cancer is easily hurt by
Aquarius's caustic humor. Cancer doesn't understand Aquarius's
essential detachment. Cancer needs to feel close and secure;
Aquarius is a lone wolf. Sex may be all right, but there's little
else going for them.
CANCER AND PISCES
This is an affectionate, sensitive couple who will bolster each
other's ego. Pisces is an imaginative dreamer but Cancer is an
imaginative worker-and together they can make their dreams a
reality. Pisces provides romance in Cancer's life, and Cancer is
the all-protective lover Pisces needs. Both are emotional,
intensely devoted, sensitive to each other's moods. They'll hit
it off in the boudoir, for both are responsive sexually. Cancer
has to take the lead but Pisces is a very willing, erotic
follower. A harmonious match.
