Cancer and Cancer Compatibility
When two Crabs come out of their shells and size each other up, an emotional tidal wave is unleashed. Tidal waves generate massive amounts of energy, but are usually short-lived, leaving a trail of devastation in their wake.
Cancer the Crab is a Water Sign, so both of you are deeply emotional and sensitive, almost to the point of being psychic. You are so sensitive in fact that you have learned to build a tough shell around your tender heart, for protection. This is part of the symbolism of the Crab, along with the tendency to sidle around a problem, rather than face it head-on. As a lover you seek security and fidelity, and, although you are not above a few flirtatious peccadillos of your own, you can be deeply wounded if the one you care for betrays your trust. Cancer is poetic and romantic, but also practical in matters to do with the home and raising a family. Cancer is reassuringly protective, even possessive, but can be a jealous lover, though more from insecurity than simple desire to dominate.
Your vein of sexuality runs deep, but follows a path strewn with obstacles, often of your own making. Ruled by the Moon, you tend to flow with the tides and are very reflective of your environment.Opening the floodgates of emotion to a fellow soul is an enormous relief, but this can often lead to a serious problem as time goes on. Sensitive Cancerians under pressure can retreat within themselves and allow repressed emotions to bottle up until they either explode with devastating force, or implode catastrophically, causing general meltdown.
The fluctuating Moon can reflect a moodiness in your nature that is not always understood nor appreciated, even by another Crab, especially when you allow irrational emotions to rule your otherwise sensible head. The problem is this: when one Cancer is on an emotional high, so is the other. This is fine, isn’t it..? But what about when both Crabs are have a bad dose of the moody blues and are both crawling dismally along the bottom of a very muddy pond? You have a lot in common, and that’s the trouble. You understand each other perfectly and can wound each other without even trying. Both are too sensitive, too demanding, too dependent. Cancer needs the sinuous flirtatious worship of the Fish, or the slinky, supportive sexuality of the Scorpion, not the agonising nippers of a fellow Crab. Enjoy it while it lasts, but don’t become co-dependent. Unless you have fabulous Moon and Ascendant connections, look elsewhere for love.← Cancer and Gemini Compatibility Cancer and Leo Compatibility →
