The following are sun sign comparisons for Cancer the Crab. Which signs match with Cancer? 



ARIES often feels smothered by demands of family and even friends. CANCER, on  the other hand, is very devoted to family needs and the inner, emotional needs  of others. ARIES may, without realizing it, selfishly accept CANCER’s nurturing  and giving, while contributing relatively little to the relationship on an  emotional level. ARIES’s need for autonomy and independence often conflicts with  CANCER’s needs for closeness, intimacy, and mutual dependency. ARIES seems  selfish, impersonal, and indifferent to CANCER at times, and CANCER may feel too  needy and emotionally sensitive compared to ARIES. ARIES can learn compassion  from CANCER, and CANCER can learn to be more independent, but it’s likely to be  a rough road at times with much adjustment needed on both sides.

Both of you are very domestic and appreciate the simple joys of life. Others  find the two of you to be very warm, friendly, and caring, and your soft and  considerate attitude is greatly appreciated by your friends. If you have  children, then you are very dedicated and involved parents. The two of you would  enjoy living in a quiet, fairly secluded place away from hustle and bustle.  CANCER is very emotional, very attached to family and familiar surroundings and  easily upset by any form of cruelty; TAURUS’s practical, grounded approach to  life and gentle manner is very much appreciated by CANCER.

CANCER is usually the one who takes care of family affairs -writing letters to  family members, visiting family members, providing the emotional support and  care needed by children (and adults!), and, in general, is more attentive to  people’s feelings and emotional needs. CANCER is also more attached to the past,  fond memories, places, and friends than GEMINI. Sometimes GEMINI is indifferent  to the concerns of CANCER, and often simply cannot become as emotionally  involved about an issue or situation as CANCER. Even if GEMINI is a caring,  sensitive person, you still find concerns are expressed differently and are  directed less personally than those of CANCER. GEMINI often wants to approach  problems intellectually by discussing them whereas CANCER seeks a change in  attitude and feels that talking often evades the underlying problems.
Many of the misunderstandings between you arise because GEMINI is more  emotionally detached and rational, while CANCER is more subjective, emotionally  involved, and unable to be as articulate and “reasonable” as GEMINI is.  Paradoxically, you are attracted to one another for the same reason! GEMINI’s  mental agility and wit appeals to CANCER, CANCER’s sensitivity and depth of  feeling is attractive to GEMINI, and you both have much to learn from one  another.

Both of you are very sensitive, sympathetic and emotional, with moods that shift  and change like the tides. Though you may hide behind a shell of equanimity or  indifference, you are really very easily hurt and take almost everything  personally. You both have deep feelings for, and sentimental attachments to, the  past, your home and family, or anything or anyone you once had a close  affiliation with (school, home town, friends, etc.). If your backgrounds are  very different, this may be more of a problem for you both than it would be to  other people, because your identification with your origins is so strong.
Both of you need to be needed, and desire a very close, secure, loving and  protective relationship. Family or domesticity is extremely important to you.  Because of your empathy for one another, and your similar temperaments, you  blend quite well together.

Both of you take life very personally, probably more personally than you  realize. Your feelings and your pride are easily wounded by criticism or lack of  appreciation from the people you care about. There can be an unusually warm  loving bond between you, though your temperaments are quite different. LEO is  very proud and wants recognition, appreciation, respect, and love from a  partner. CANCER wants to be needed and desires sympathy, tenderness, and  emotional support from a partner. LEO has difficulty accepting and expressing  needs, sadness, or weakness, and is uncomfortable when CANCER expresses doubts,  insecurities, weaknesses, or moodiness.
LEO is the more dominant of the two of you and is likely to take the lead in  your relationship – which is fine with CANCER, who has no need to be on top.

Both of you are inclined to mood changes that, at times, can irritate each  other. For example, CANCER experiences periods of melancholy, tenderness,  concern, worry, nostalgia and sentimentality, which VIRGO may not understand or  sympathize with. VIRGO can suddenly become irritated and irascible over minor  annoyances, and at such times, is capable of intense sarcasm and criticism,  which can be extremely disconcerting to CANCER’s tender, sensitive feelings.  VIRGO must be prudent, and CANCER must strive to be forgiving when things go a  little awry. However, you are both capable of enormous devotion to one another  (and to your children if you have them), and taking care of one another comes  naturally to you.

There are some similarities between you, and also some significant differences  in your temperaments and needs.
Both of you are thoughtful, considerate, sensitive to, and aware of, other  people’s needs. Having good personal relationships is very important to both of  you, and you make harmony and peace in your personal lives a very high priority.  You both avoid conflict and confrontation if at all possible.
The differences are thus: LIBRA is more objective, rational, and fair compared  to CANCER, who is subjective, emotional, and biased by personal sympathies and  loyalties. Though seemingly sympathetic, LIBRA can be surprisingly cool and  intellectual when problems arise between the two of you. CANCER responds very  personally and emotionally. LIBRA needs more communication and conversation than  CANCER seems to.
Also, LIBRA wants to relate as an equal and a peer, while CANCER wants to mother  or be mothered by a partner. So CANCER is more comfortable with becoming  emotionally or financially dependent on a partner (or having the partner  dependent in that way), while LIBRA wants a more egalitarian relationship. These  differences can cause misunderstandings between you, but rarely are they a  source of major conflict.

It is so very easy to attach yourselves to each other! Because each of you  possesses a powerful feeling nature and a tendency to bond intensely with  important people in your lives, you sense in each other a basic similarity in  temperaments and goals. There are differences, of course, in your natures, but  this overall similarity can strengthen the bond between you. CANCER often feels  more compassion and sympathy for others, while SCORPIO may view CANCER’s  feelings as sentimentality. When wounded, SCORPIO sometimes tends towards being  resentful. CANCER, on the other hand, is more apt to sulk or withdraw when hurt,  and usually lets the other person know (generally in a nonverbal manner!) about  it. SCORPIO, by contrast, hides hurt more readily.
You may also have different attitudes towards sexuality versus love. For  example, CANCER may feel that SCORPIO is sometimes more driven by instinct and  lust than by love, and this may become an issue in your relationship. Overall,  though, the intense bonding and emotionality of your relationship fosters a  deep, lasting attachment between you. Intimacy is likely to come more easily to  you as a couple than it does for others, and loyalty is important to you both.

Your natures are so different that you are bound to clash at times. Very often  when SAGITTARIUS feels the urge to travel, explore, expand, and follow a new  star, CANCER feels just the opposite: the urge to be close to family, to  establish roots, to have children and provide for them, to be near close  friends. SAGITTARIUS’s desire for freedom and exploration is often at cross  purposes with CANCER’s need for security.
SAGITTARIUS tends to also be philosophical and detached about personal matters  while CANCER takes a much more personal, subjective, compassionate, and  emotional approach to life. Although in theory your differences can complement  each other, and sometimes they do, there are times when you will have to be very  creative and imaginative to find ways to meet everyone’s needs.

In many ways the two of you are opposites. CANCER needs a lot of domestic and  family activities. Nurturing others and personal involvement with others is a  necessary part of life for CANCER. Family and close friends are extremely  important for CANCER, while CAPRICORN often becomes emotionally detached from  personal affairs and may fail to fully appreciate CANCER’s more personal,  emotional responses to situations. CAPRICORN may seem dry and perhaps overly  ambitious to CANCER.
Your differences can serve to complement each other only if you really  understand and appreciate each other. Both of you do seek security, consistency,  and fidelity in relationships, so there is a reasonably good chance that over  time you will develop a greater appreciation for each other’s opposite  qualities.

CANCER is more attached to family, more nostalgic, and more domestic than  AQUARIUS. AQUARIUS is very friendly but not as emotionally involved with family  and has much broader tastes and interests. CANCER, for example, becomes very  emotionally attached to familiar surroundings and is inclined to live in one  place for a long time. AQUARIUS, on the other hand, is more willing to follow  whatever direction that career changes and other demands necessitate. AQUARIUS  quickly makes new friends and does not need as high a degree of intimacy as  CANCER and therefore finds the transition to new surroundings much easier.  CANCER is also more concerned with having financial and material security and is  more inclined to worry if circumstances are not stable and secure. CANCER needs  to be needed and wants a level of emotional bonding and nurturing that AQUARIUS  may be incapable of.

There is a tremendous flow of feeling, sympathy, and emotional rapport between  you, and you feel that your partner understands and empathizes with you in a way  few others do. Both of you are sensitive, intuitive, receptive, and  compassionate people, easily moved by emotional appeals or needs of others. A  deep mutual appreciation of music and the arts is also likely.
The differences between you are: PISCES’s sympathies are more broad and  universal than CANCER’s, who is more concerned with family or others who are  personally dear to CANCER. “Our family” or “our circle” matters more to CANCER  than to PISCES, who treats friends and strangers more equally. PISCES can be a  little lax when it comes to remembering significant personal dates, like  anniversaries or birthdays, whereas CANCER never is. Fortunately this difference  is rather minor and unlikely to be much of problem between you.
