JUMP TO A SIGN:
Cancer and Aries
You’re a homebody, Cancer. You like to be in your element, spending time with close friends and family. When you get into a relationship, you move slowly because you don’t want to get hurt. Rams, on the other hand, are impulsive and independent. Being involved with one can make you feel vulnerable, which will make you act needier than you usually are. Your moodiness can annoy Aries, who isn’t particularly interested in dealing with other people’s feelings. If Aries can learn to be more sympathetic, and you can learn to give them more space, it might just work out.
Cancer and Taurus
Cancer and Taurus are the ultimate domestic duo. You lovingly whip up breads, pies, cakes, cookies, and muffins, and your Bull is all too happy to help you eat them. Taurus is also a good cook, and will gladly return the favor anytime. You two are happy at home, but you can get so cozy with each other that you forget you have friends and family who would also like to spend some time with you. Taurus is more stable and grounded than you are, and can adjust to the ebb and flow of your emotional tides easier than most signs.
Cancer and Gemini
When a Cancer and a Gemini meet, they have a lot to learn about each other. A Gemini may often hurt your feelings, and when you want physical reassurance, they’ll offer apologies and explanations. While you sit there and wait for Gemini to figure out why you’re so mad, he or she will need you to just come out and say it. It won’t be an easy obstacle to overcome, but it also won’t be impossible. Once you learn that words mean the same thing for Geminis as hugs do for you -- and vice versa -- you’ll be in better shape.
Cancer and Cancer
Crabs aren’t used to having their abundant emotional needs met. So when two Cancers hook up, they might not know how to deal with the fact that someone is lavishing them with the same caring and devotion they usually give to others but never get in return. You’ve both been longing for love for what seems like forever, but it’s hard for you to accept it. When you finally do -- and you will -- you’ll have a happy life together, with plenty of blankets and cozy furniture. Plus, you’ll finally have all the snuggling you could ever hope for.
Cancer and Leo
When you first meet a Leo, they can seem confident and outgoing. Don’t be fooled by your Leo’s booming roar and powerful charisma, though. Deep down, he or she is just a tender pussycat who wants to be scratched behind the ear. Your partner wants to feel adored, and you’re more than capable of providing that. The problem is the Lion might not be able to reciprocate by giving you what you need. Security is the most important thing to a Crab like you, and a Lion may not be the best person for the job. However, if they’re able to, this relationship just might work.
Cancer and Virgo
Virgos can be demanding and critical at times. Your loyalty, caring, and sensitivity can soothe the busy and often complicated Virgo mind. Cancers are one of the few signs who has what it takes to coax these over-analyzers out of their heads and into their hearts. If you’re able to, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how easily they let down their guard. Your Virgo will feel safe with you, which will make them less picky and judgmental. You really bring out the best in this difficult sign, and their earthiness will appeal to your need for security.
Cancer and Libra
You are instantly attracted to the sophisticated Libra personality, and may jump into a relationship faster than usual despite being quite different people. Like all Water signs, you’re guided by your feelings, while Libra focuses on rational thought. You have no problem making up your mind, even though you worry about your decision. Libra, on the other hand, has to go over every possible outcome before deciding on a course of action. Libra may disapprove of your intense emotions sometimes, but with a little love and a lot of humor, you can make it work.
Cancer and Scorpio
Cancer and Scorpio are both Water signs, which means you can swim through the emotional depths of a relationship together like enchanted aquatic creatures. The tides of your feelings changes like the tides of the ocean, but you’re both able to go wit the flow. On the surface, it seems like your emotions are more up and down than your partner’s. While there is less turmoil on Scorpio’s exterior, there are powerful and intense passions stewing beneath the surface. A relationship between a Crab and a Scorpion will never be a casual fling.
Cancer and Sagittarius
Your passive and sensitive demeanor may be shaken up by the restless nature of a Sagittarius, who is always looking for adventure ... and not always one that’s close to home. This could be a good thing for you, because you’ll get the chance to experience things you wouldn’t have on your own. However, you might not want to as Sagittarius’ straightforward nature could hurt your feelings, causing you to retreat back into your shell. You’ll need to spice up your life if you want to hold onto your fearless mate, while your Sagittarius will need to slow down and do things with you at home every once in awhile.
Cancer and Capricorn
You are more sensitive to the needs of others than any other sign of the Zodiac, Cancer. Capricorns, your opposite sign, aren’t exactly known for wearing their hearts on their sleeves. They are practical people who would rather keep their feelings, emotions, and vulnerability to themselves, which may be hard for you to deal with. Your own emotional well-being will depend upon your ability to communicate your feelings with integrity, while your Goat will have to learn to pay attention to your mood swings in order to gain your trust and develop intimacy.
Cancer and Aquarius
You’re the traditional, sentimental type, Cancer. Aquarius, on the other hand, is more eccentric, and lets go of feelings easily. Your partner has big ideals, and is often more concerned with saving the world than with handing you a tissue to wipe up your tears. While you tend to live in the past, Aquarius is always looking toward the future. With some adjustments -- you’ll have to trust your Aquarian love more, and he or she will have to adjust to your ever-changing emotions -- the two of you can learn how to live together in the present.
Cancer and Pisces
When Crabs and Fish meet, they understand each other almost immediately. In a way, you are zodiac cousins, living in the same watery world. You share a bond that isn’t intellectual -- it’s based on a shared sensitivity, awareness, and compassion. Your Pisces is tuned into your continuously changing moods and emotional needs. Meanwhile, you can sense when your Fish is confused or in pain. You can often communicate with each other without even saying a word. Like two peas in a pod, you have what it takes to live together in the garden of eternal happiness.
