Aquarius and Cancer Compatibility

When you meet Cancer, the Crab, it can be love at first sight, due to the power of the sexual attraction. This fascination is partly due to the very different ways in which you each approach the world. Cancer is creative, yet deeply emotional and quite tender at heart, despite that legendary shell, while Aquarius is intellectually adventurous, emotionally detached and fairly self-contained. Cancer likes to hold on to emotional attachments and might want more commitment than you are willing to give, especially early in the relationship when the passions are really surging.

Sensual Cancer, a Water Sign, is ruled by the changing Moon, while unconventional Aquarius, an Air Sign, is ruled by structured Saturn and offbeat Uranus. Saturn is intellectual, cool and structured, while the Moon is nurturing, inward-looking and growth-oriented, but oh, so changeable and moody. This mixture is interesting and when put in a structured goal-directed environment, can be very productive, due to your ability to maintain a steady approach, combined with Cancer’s creativity and emotional power. The combination of nurtured growth and structured development and of masculine and feminine energy is potentially rewarding. but you’ll need to develop mutual goals and work together on projects that you can share, so that the energies can be put to work instead of degenerating into jealousy and restlessness.

Cancer’s sensuality and romantic imagination is intriguing. Your sexual fires are stoked by the Crab’s willingness to enjoy the excitement of your unconventional appetites. However, since you tend to be rather emotionally detached, quite cerebral and intellectually wide-ranging, while Cancer is basically cautious, domestic and emotional, you find it harder than some to meet on common ground.

Cancer’s warm, responsive nature can be put on the chiller by your cool self-possession. Your need for freedom and independence can be quite threatening to your Cancerian lover, who seeks ownership and possession, with stability and security being high on the Crab’s list of needs. On the other hand, Cancer’s sometimes excessively emotional, demonstrative and possessive characteristics can hem you in. You need to realize that Cancer needs closeness, affection and security and can feel threatened by your elegant justifications of the desirability of separate bedrooms!

Cancer can draw you out of your ivory tower and you can enliven the Crab’s intellect. Make sure you do lots of travelling together, but always have a secure home base to return to and any apparent incompatibilities can be balanced and resolved.
