JUMP TO A SIGN:
Cancer and Aries
Beneath your shy exterior beats the heart of an executive. Aries has tremendous powers of leadership, too. If the two of you can negotiate each other’s vastly different work styles, you can form an effective partnership. Granted, there will be times when the Ram’s boldness makes you cringe. Similarly, your cautious behavior can drive Aries crazy. Still, you can’t help but admire this sign’s capacity for getting things done in record time. Similarly, Aries respects your gift for spinning straw into gold. You’ve always had a knack for building a fortune out of seemingly worthless materials. The two of you would do well in politics, whether supporting a candidate or running on the same ticket. You could also find success in finance or scientific research.
Cancer and Taurus
This is one of those work partnerships that is almost destined to succeed. You appreciate Taurus’ unshakable calm, while they appreciate your managerial abilities. You’re both good with money, although the Bull spends more than you’d like on office decor. Still, you would be wise to yield to this sign’s impeccable taste. A beautiful environment will attract a higher grade of clientele. Besides, Taurus is always more productive when surrounded by plants, pictures, and handsome furniture. You’d both do very well in real estate, landscaping, or farming. If you’re working for an employer, let Taurus do the day-to-day work, while you focus on the more ambitious projects.
Cancer and Gemini
This is an interesting work partnership that is fraught with challenges and rewards. Gemini’s lack of focus can make you nervous and irritable, while your methodical approach drives the Twins to distraction. This sign is good at making money, but has difficulty retaining it. You’re proficient at investing money, but have a hard time parting with it. Still, you can use your differences to your mutual advantage. For instance, Gemini loves to socialize, while you prefer dealing with people you know. Let your colleague drum up new clients while you develop existing relationships. Similarly, you’re good at intuiting market trends, while Gemini is great at adapting plans to meet up-to-the-minute fads. You’d both do well in public relations, teaching, or newspaper reporting.
Cancer and Cancer
When two Crabs meet, they circle each other cautiously, looking for weaknesses in the other. Then, after you’ve sized each other up, you both break into goofy guffaws. That’s because you recognize each other as kindred spirits. You won’t have to worry about appearing overly sensitive to this colleague. Similarly, your Crab coworker won’t have to worry about stinging criticisms from you. You’re both adept at generating profits, and know how to assert yourselves when it’s appropriate. The two of you would do very well as running a restaurant, school, or eldercare facility. If you’re working for an employer, take care to bolster each other’s fragile egos with praise and encouragement. An occasional push wouldn’t hurt, either.
Cancer and Leo
This professional pairing can cause quite a few clashes if you’re not careful! Leo is relentlessly upbeat, while you’re always moody. Lions feel they deserve constant praise, and you think you’ll never be good enough. You like earning money, and Leo likes spending it. Are there any similarities here? Well, you’re both hard workers. You like lingering over projects that give you deep pleasure. Opening an art gallery, craft business, or interior decorating firm will draw on both of your prodigious talents. If you’re working for an employer, let Leo handle the public relations side of things, while you focus on growing the business over the long-term future. You have more executive ability than Leo, but it’s probably a wise move to make this colleague think that they’re in charge while you pull all of the strings.
Cancer and Virgo
This is a pleasant partnership that can yield impressive results. Both you and Virgo take great pride in helping others. Virgo does this by analysis, while you operate on intuition. Still, the products of your labors are equally impressive. The two of you have the patience to cultivate products over a prolonged period of time. Therefore, you’d do well running a greenhouse, raising organic food, or running pension funds. If you’re working for an employer, let Virgo attend to the daily details, while you focus on the big picture. You’re a born leader, but your humble attitude sits well with modest Virgo. Similarly, your colleague is a perceptive critic, giving your work admirable polish and shine.
Cancer and Libra
It’s sometimes hard for you to get a handle on your Libran colleague. This sign takes a lighthearted approach to work that you find incomprehensible. On the other hand, Libra thinks that you work senselessly over insignificant details. You’re all about substance, while Libra only cares about style. If you combine forces, you can cover all these bases without stepping on the other’s toes. You should handle financial matters, while Libra attends to advertising. Libra can attract clients, while you attend to their needs. The two of you would do very well in public relations, catering, or wedding planning. If you work for an employer, draw upon Libra’s creative talents as a means to underscore your own professional abilities.
Cancer and Scorpio
Your uncanny intuition lets you know that your Scorpion colleague is an ally, not an adversary. The fact is, the both of you have a healthy suspicion about the world. Neither one of you likes to put all of your eggs into one basket. Similarly, you both shy away from risky ventures unless you’re fully confident in your abilities, location, and client base. The two of you would make great bankers, psychiatrists, or detectives. If you’re working for an employer, let Scorpio work behind the scenes, while you deal with the higher ups. Armed with Scorpio’s reliable intelligence, you can get your boss to do anything you want. Pretty soon, the two of you will be running the show.
Cancer and Sagittarius
Sagittarius’ brash behavior could grate on your sensitive nerves -- prepare to withstand plenty of ribbing from this playful colleague. If you’re able to overcome your differences in temperament, you’ll be able to form a successful work partnership. You can depend on your Archer colleague to speak on your behalf when you become tongue-tied. Meanwhile, you can smooth any feathers that Sagittarius will unwittingly ruffle. Because you both love animals, you could run a profitable veterinary clinic, pet grooming service, or breeding company together. You’re also passionately interested in justice, which would make good law partners. If you’re working for an employer, let Sagittarius drum up new business, while you attend to growing the profits.
Cancer and Capricorn
Capricorn may seem like all business at first glance, but the longer you know the Goat, the more evident this sign’s delightful sense of humor will become. Granted, their sensibility is much darker than yours, but you both love to laugh. This can be tremendously helpful when working on the demanding projects that you both invariably attract. You can always count on Capricorn to stay late to meet looming deadlines. Similarly, the Goat takes great comfort in your ability to intuit their needs, whether it’s a cup of coffee, a sincere compliment, or an extra pair of hands. At times, you’ll think Capricorn is overly cold and calculated, while your colleague will find you hopelessly sentimental. Still, you both have a healthy respect for each other. You’d make great bankers, architects, or medical professionals.
Cancer and Aquarius
A traditionalist like you can have great difficulty understanding rebellious Aquarius. You are set in your work methods, while the Water-bearer is constantly experimenting with new methods. You make plans and carry them out to the letter, but Aquarius has no use for blueprints of any kind. It’s important to communicate your needs to this colleague in a straightforward fashion -- Aquarians don’t have your mind-reading abilities. The two of you do share a deep concern for humanitarian causes, and could run a successful nonprofit organization or grant writing business together. Alternately, you could design affordable housing. If you’re working for an employer, give Aquarius the freedom to do things their own way. In turn, they’ll help hone your creative ideas to diamond-like brilliance.
Cancer and Pisces
You and Pisces have an instant affinity for one another. Your bond isn’t a meeting of the minds -- it’s a meeting of the hearts. Your Pisces colleague understands your need for kindness and consideration, while you intuit the Fish’s desire for privacy. You’re both extremely compassionate people, and would do well as social workers or physical therapists. You could also find success running a winery or brewery. If you’re working for an employer, you should take the lead. Pisces can benefit from your remarkable managerial abilities. Meanwhile, let Pisces work behind the scenes, which is where they operate best.
