Leo and Cancer Compatibility
When you team up with Cancer, the Crab, it’s a cosmic case of light and dark, day meets night. Sensual Cancer, a Water Sign, is governed by the changing Moon, ruler of the night, while dramatic Leo, a Fire Sign, is ruled by the steadfast Sun, the brilliant Day Star. The sexual energy burns hot, at least in the beginning, for Fire and Water make a steamy connection. Cancer is creative, yet deeply emotional and quite tender at heart, despite having a tough shell, while Leo is bold and generous, big-hearted yet ego-centric. You love to shine amidst a circle of admirers, but Cancer likes to hold on to emotional attachments and might like to receive more attention than you are used to giving, especially early in the relationship when the cosmic lights are shining at their brightest.
Both of you are quite romantic, but this imaginative path for growth takes quite different directions in each of your cases. Your wish is for a relationship to be glorious and exciting, while Cancer prefers it to be meaningful and fulfilling. Cancer is happy to adore the lively Lion, and in return you can supply the warm-hearted security the Crab craves. The Crab is good with money, so that can help reign in your extravagance, but too much caution can set your tail twitching, especially when you want to party on!
Moon-ruled Cancer is nurturing, inward-looking and growth-oriented, but oh, so changeable and moody. A Cardinal Sign, Cancer has good ideas, powered by an acute emotional sensitivity. Your own emotions are wide open, on display for all the world to see, so sometimes you feel that the Crab is too convoluted and concerned about the future. Your ability to handle the risk and to hold a steady course, combined with Cancer’s creativity and emotional power can make a good working connection, but develop mutual goals and work together on projects you can share, so that your variant energies can be put to work instead of degenerating into jealousy on the one hand and restlessness on the other.
Cancer’s warm, responsive nature is encouraged by your bravery and generous heart, but can be dampened by your need for attention and to be always surrounded by an admiring crowd. You can appreciate these worries, but have enough inner strength to overcome them. There’s no power on earth that can turn your fire into a pile of ashes, so don’t let Cancer get away with trying to rain on your parade. Be prepared for an emotional roller-coaster, but you’ll enjoy the ride.
