In a relationship, Cancer is incredibly romantic and devoted. People born between June 21st and July 22nd are slow paced and need some time to let themselves fall in love and let their partner have access to the place where they hide all their insecurities and fears. The idea frightens them, but in time, they will feel like it was the best decision they ever made. Cancerians are not afraid of commitment and they are extremely passionate and loving towards their partner.
Cancer in Relationship
Since Cancerians' ruling element is water, it should go without saying that these people are highly intuitive and they have their way of handling their emotions. Both Cancer men and Cancer women are full of emotions, even though their though exterior shell doesn't let them come out often. Figuring out if a Cancer loves someone, though, is not difficult at all. Their tendency to be possessive will eventually break their shell and let them express their feelings via acts of admiration and affection. When a Cancer falls in love, they give their everything to their partner so they can feel as safe as they would like to feel.
Compared to other men in the zodiac, the Cancer men are able and willing to take the role of a romantic partner and parent with confidence. That is due to their connection with their own emotions. These men are not afraid to show their sentimental side. Cancer women are even more romantic, more sentimental and more sensitive, only due to their femininity. Whatever is going on inside the Cancer woman – their partner will know. These people are honest and truthful. Lifelong security is their goal in life, which is why they prefer to build their love life from the ground up, plant roots and nurture it on a regular basis.
After a while, the relationship with a Cancer may become more comfortable than steamy and this is where both partners should put hard work. Physical touches, little surprises and willingness to talk deep will do a lot in the rebuilding of the intimacy. Highly sensitive and easy to hurt, Cancerians approach relationships extremely carefully, so should their partners. Once the trust is broken or they are hurt, Cancerians are out. Luckily, their intuition is sharp, so they rarely end up in a relationship that doesn't fit their bill.
Cancer Compatibility with Other Zodiac Signs
As a water sign, Cancer is most compatible with the other water signs: Scorpio and Pisces. Cancer can connect with these two water signs emotionally, intellectually, physically and spiritually like with no other signs. They desire same things in a relationship and they are equally sensitive and emotional. When Cancer and Scorpio start a relationship, there is only one threat, and that is their tendency to get moody, jealous and possessive, so their fights can be heated. With Pisces, however, their relationship can go the wrong way if Pisces' need for liberty and life outside of the relationship grow bigger than their love.
Cancer is also highly compatible with earth signs, especially Taurus, who might be the ideal partner for them. When they come together in a romantic relationship, it is a whole new level of comfort they both will absolutely love. Enjoying Netflix nights, cuddling for hours and building a home together is how these two will handle their relationship. With a Virgo, Cancer is also in a happy relationship where their needs are met. If they somehow manage to develop a strong emotional bond with the overly practical Virgo, this is a match for a lifetime. Cancer and Capricorn compatibility is also great, because of the great amount of admiration these two can have for one another and their immense support to achieve their goals.
The least compatible signs for Cancer are the air signs: Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. They are completely different from what Cancerians want in their partner and it is incredibly hard for they to bond on any level. The simple fact that water signs are all about emotions and air signs are perceived as unemotional speaks volumes.
Cancer is a romantic partner who doesn't spare means of showing how they feel to the person they love with all the heart (as if there were any other way). They seek for life-long security and stability in a partner and their intuition is a great asset in their slow and careful choosing of their partner.
