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' venturesome spirit and
wandering eye inflame Cancer's jealousy. And Cancer is too easily hurt by Aries'
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 bed mates whose erotic
imaginations are sparked by each other. But that's rarely enough. This treadmill goes
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'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 the
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.
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's warm, responsive nature is chilled by Aquarius's cool self-possession. In
turn, Cancer's clinging, cloying demonstratives 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
