Cancer Best and Worst Relationship Matches


Since the moon, which shifts, creates and signifies emotion, rules Cancer, then you can always expect your dealings with Cancerians to be filled with a certain level of intense investment. This investment will always come from the qualities that are inherent to their nature, such as fertility, domesticity and that overarching maternal (even you boys) instinct. The emotionally that seems to rule over this aspect of the sun sign, manifests itself in the stomach, via stomach aches and indigestion (the emotional barometer for humans), and in their tenacity for seeing things through and making sure that good is done.

The Cancerian is likely to be saving you from something, and even though you may not feel as though you need to be saved, your Cancer lover has an uncanny ability to sniff out unhappiness or dissatisfaction. If you are the not the focus of their altruistic imperialism then some other ’cause’ will adorn their spirit, which so thoroughly inhabits them. From the neighborhood kids, to sick animals, your Cancer partner is a hallmark card for all things nurturing or protecting. Though this can be distracting and perhaps a bit of an annoyance when every time someone needs change or a cat looks hungry, or even a distressed phone call from a friend, can interrupt an entire evening’s plans, it is important to remember that this is how Cancer deals with their emotional depth. Helping people or causes can serve to assuage the level of emotional distress that a Cancer feels at other’s pain. By allowing them the space to do what feels natural will mean that they take it out on you less.

The thin shell that is supposed to protect Cancer from external stimulus doesn’t always do such a great job, and thus their softer interior is often disturbed. It is for this reason that in matters of the heart you may never even see the Cancer sneak up on you. Because they, more than anyone else, are well aware of their propensity for emotionally, your Cancer lover may come from all directions but straight ahead. This is a protective measure, since head on confrontation and/or rejection is something that they will not deal with easily. Expect this behavior and it is much less disconcerting. Make sure to be ready and willing to interpret requests or suggestions that will not be completely obvious. Challenge yourself to think outside your normal emotional or intuitive parameters.

This will also allow you to know and understand that the Cancer in your life has had a lot of stress and perhaps a few whiskey-cigarettes-tears nights. This has driven a large amount of the empathy development in their lives, and they usually feel (and are mostly right) that this troubled past has them to believe that they know what others are going through during times of trouble.

They can fix things though, oh how they can fix things. Cancer is a handyman and as a result a nice home usually follows a Cancer around, and provides great tools for good fathering or mothering. So if you are ready for a domestic life, keep that Crab in your life.

One of the drawbacks of having such a thin shell is that it can sometimes make you seem withdrawn and uncaring. This is especially true when it comes to those members of the Cancer crew that have been hurt particularly badly in the past. Their reluctance to express themselves with their feelings is simply a defense mechanism. An important thing to remember is that allowing your Crab lover to withdraw and not be their usual empathic self-will help them charge their batteries after too much stress.

Avoid early marriage with Cancers, since it usually is the result of their over active nesting impulse. This can often result in a dramatic realization that they are not equipped to deal with the harsh demands of married life, and leads to high divorce rates.

***Important hint: Cancers may keep nostalgic things around them, picture albums, letters etc. Many times this can contain records of old lovers. It is important to remember that Cancers can feel very unsure of the future, and can be more comfortable leaving a piece of themselves in the past, for security’s sake. It is a good thing to keep remembering that you are the one that they are with, and not vice-versa.

Because of this penchant for living in the past, the Cancer that you are in a relationship with may have a problem remembering all the unkind or thoughtless things that he/she has done, but trust me, they have no problem remembering all the uncaring things that you have done. This selectivity can be very hurtful, and many times untrue. Encourage your lover to live in the present and resist the urge to only focus on the past.

Best Relationship Matches

Capricorn Before they work though, you need a few failed relationships, because they’re just as shy and just as driven. Once you reach your thirties and settle a bit, you’re home free.

Scorpio Their dominant nature fits well with your caring side.

Pisces They understand your depth of feeling like no other.

Worst Relationship Matches

Gemini They are too flighty for you.

Aries They are too bold and self-centered.

Sagittarius Despite an initial attraction, the wandering, popular Sagittarius may be too much for you to handle, and jealousy and rage are right around the corner.

  1. Cancer and virgo the worst match as far as my experience. Two Virgo men and they made me entirely put off and I got mad. We cancer woman need security which is not given by virgo men. May be in the beginning, they are so nice to us. Gemini and cancer women makes good match I guess. I have a friend who is a Gemini and he cares and loves me a lot but I consider him as my friend. Cancer women don’t be heartbroken by Virgo men. Stay away from them.

  2. I’m a cancer. But I seem to be drawn to libras. My only two serious relationships were with libras. Plus my best friend who I have known for all my life is a libra. I’m currently dating one and I love him more than anything . I love how they care so much about balance and how dedicated they are. He loves me and only me and It makes me feel so amazing. I would do anything for this man. And I feel like our personalizes match very well. We do disagree on some things. But libras like to talk and communicate about it Nd cancers understand where they are coming from feel good about talking the problem out, so fights for me and my boyfriend don’t last very long. We always say sorry and try and say something that we can both fix. I think this is my perfect match.

  3. I am a cancer woman and from personal experience we [Cancerous woman] do not match well with Capricorns, Taurus, Gemini, Sagittarius, Libra, or Aries. I dated men who had these signs and the relationships were not successful. Capricorns take too long to figure out and they’re insecure, Taurus are too bold and can say they know what they want but bad at showing it…so with that being said a Taurus man may work but it depends on the people. Gemini are too flighty and dependent. Sagittarius and Libra are too crazy, last minute, can’t make up their mind and just enjoy getting they want. Aries are too self-centered so I do agree with the article on that one. I do have to say Cancer woman (because I cannot speak for men) are the best zodiac signs for building a relationship because we’re very nurturing, caring, smart, straightforward and know what we want out of life.

  4. I am a male cancer, and I found a lot of same traits that other cancers have. I have always wanted to be a father, a husband and of course a lovable one.
    I want a lot of attention in a relationship, I want to be feel loved. Because I always give my share of love to my companion, and it kind of gives me a bad feeling when I don’t get the same reaction back.
    I can’t figure out are we too simple or too hard to handle :D

  5. I am a cancer woman.
    b proud of whom we are.we dont need 2 change bcoz the world is full of assholes.we r only the pure ones

  6. What about Taurus????? I’ve read that Taurus and Cancer are a great match, but nothing on this site about it…what gives? LOL…. If you have a comment for that match I’d love to hear it.. In addition, to add to this. You can’t go by just the Sun sign. The couple’s birth charts really have a play in the compatibility of their mates more than just saying Taurus and Cancer or Gemini and Cancer etc.

  7. I am a cancer woman who adores Virgo men. There is something about them that captures my admiration. I have fallen in love twice in my life with Virgo men but the relationship ended due to my insecurity. now I am older and a bit wiser I look forward to meet my next Virgo.

  8. what happened with Cancer and Gemini?

  9. I agree with everyone, I’m a cancer male. Divorced a Virgo and just ended a relationship with a scorpio, I didn’t get enough attention and feel neglected and unappreciated constantly, lol. Scorpio was too controlling and would fight me when I want to donate or take care of things for my children from previous marriage.
    Oh well time to move on, Ill crawl out of my shell next year.

  10. I am a cancer woman who just ended a relationship with a miserable Capricorn he was soooo not my best match , more like WORSE EVER I make the best connections with Pisces women they truly understand my depth like no one else, haven’t found a Pisces man yet. I had the most beautiful relationship in my life with an Aries man, but he had grown in god and that made him the match that he was for me. Leo’s steal my heart and scorpions are crazy!!! I agree with all that was said about us. I have blessed life and very positive outlook, but locating this man that is the right balance and fit hasn’t been easy. R we as cancers too deep??? Love is love and cancers give the best love. IJS….

Still love myself tho :) love is love and cancers give the best love. IJS….

  12. i am a cancer and when we love we love to the fullest but when we have been hurt or wronged by or loved ones we can cut them and never look back but we always try to be friends later and work things out but if we cut you from or lifes we will not look back

  13. I actually put others first so I am not bold and self centered.! :(

  14. Scorpio men and Cancer women for sure. Cancer women love how passionate scorps are, and like the jealousy. At least I do. I don’t do it on purpose, but it makes me feel loved. I love Scorpio men, except they can be way too mysterious. As a cancer girl, I love feeling protected, and the scorpio men do not flatter you just for the hell of it, they actually mean it.

  15. should i really be worried? my babe is a sag… but i love him sooo much… i want to spend the rest of my life with him… we’ve waited 7 years to come back into each others lives… reading this… makes me want to accept this challenging relationship… ^_^

  16. Seriously, where is Cancer + Taurus in this list?

    You cannot realistcallly put Cancer + Capricorn over Cancer + Taurus. I understand the reasoning behind it – Cancer and Capricorn are opposites – but that’s like saying Taurus + Scorpio is a better match simply because they are 180 degrees apart on the zodiac wheel. Uh, no. The initial attraction might be there but this isn’t a question of attraction – it’s about compatibility.

    I strongly recommend you revise this article.

    • Haha! I just posted similar. I am Taurus Woman, dating a Cancer Man right now… so far so good!! However, we shall see. I know that this whole don’t buy into an early marriage with a Cancer, he is deep and feelings are everywhere where I like them to be, but he was talking about marrying me one month after dating!! HAHAHAHA>… <3 Love my cancer for now. I'm pretty sure it's a match made in heaven.

  17. we dont mean to be this way it is only how we live

  18. I’m a gemini [f] and my fiance is a cancer [m]. We fit perfectly like a glove on a hand~ I love his sentimentality and stability (I move and travel a lot and he’s the only thing besides my cat that stays constant). Although we’re opposites in so many fields, we’re just perfect for each other. Woo~

  19. I AM A LEO AND TRULY LOVE A CANCER MAN BUT I GET CONFUSED MANY TIMES, I WANT HIM TO BE MY HUSBAND TILL DEATH DO US PART

  20. I prefer Scorpio above all signs but have never been in anything other than a friendship situation. I really find Virgo’s much to much! I find both males and females to be very narcissistic and their lack of empathy is appalling. Taurus I respect for their strength and respect their being so bull headed about things. Pisces are delightfully fun! And their creative side enhances the connection. After 28 rs with a critical, self-centered, split personality behavior, etc. (I don’t infer these to be true Virgo traits), I find it hard to think about being in any relationship with anyone right now, though, but if I did feel ready to begin again, I’d probably seek out either a Pisces or a Scorpio. For now, I like being with just me!

  21. I am a cancerian girl(26th june) and I have wished many a times in my life that I weren’t one. All the traits mentioned above about a cancerian (atleast girls) are absolutely true….I wish I were not a cancerian. The worst part is that my husband is a sagittarius,, can u believe that..though I love him to the core, i always feel I am not good enough for him. I feel that wavelength or understanding is missing btwn us.Though I am trying ma best to change….So cancerians out there – since we cant change our zodiac sign :) atleast stay away from sagittarius…they are fun to hang around, so fun loving, popular but when it comes to emotional quotient, he lacks that and i believe that is something very important for a marriage to sustain…
    tc

  22. this is reaally true about the cancerian guy. i understnd him a lot more. and honestly ive liked him since since the first day i saw him, i just have always thought its never gonna happen. its been about 3 yrs now and i feel like my feelings have grown a lot more since then. i am a 100% pisces woman. and i have to admit i was really happy to see we could make one of the best couples. i need a little help though i have fears of rejection because him and i come from different worlds in a way, yet we seem to have so much in common. i decided to forget about him and fell love hard for a taurus man and now its been a few months since we broke up and for some odd reason this cancer guy that i thought would be impossible to ever be with is in my life more than before. i have a strong relationship with his mother, heck she’s like my mother and because of her it is why me and him have gotten some what close.. atleast now he knows i exist. anywho.. he gives me mixed signals sometime and confuses me.. how do i know if he could see me as something else? i would love to be with him the rest of my life.

  23. I am a 42 yr old cancer woman. I thought libra’s were my sure match, turns out… they are not… although fantastic lovers…cancers just dont have the “romance” in them to keep a libra interested :-( this makes me very sad, as i Love him like i’ve NEVER loved anyone ever. I’m convinced that I am to be alone.

  24. I an Aries was suddenly completely cut off from the cancer I was falling for no announcement just silence its been hell this doesnt really delve too much on their meanness and this cancer seems to not have a sympathic bone in his body, he made me cry. I’ll keep watch here to see if anyone else has had experience with being completey swept away by a cancer just to be axed as quickly. nauseating.

    • Same thing happened to me too!

    • Well, Aries, I can speak for myself as a Cancer woman, that once a Cancerian recognizes that security in her emotions cannot be obtained within pursuing that type of a character (which you being an Aries, could have scared her off with your boldness, without you even having known). Then like a crab, can retreat into the sands at the slightest fear of investing at all. Because investing at all, means investing all for a Cancer.

    • Lol listen I understand u 100 percent . Im a 48 yr old cancer male Taurus rising. Many posts about libras . Well That’s Libra. Alluring and beautiful attractive. Were drawn out of our shell by libra , but trust me its not U that’s not romantic enough. As cancer honestly when it comes to Romance we surpass most in romance and at least equal the rest .Thing is libra is unreliable and wondering. Although they have many good traits these are some or theyre worst. They are cheaters and its not U my true Lover its them . Theyre clueless to the depths of romance U exude, so much they become frustrated and look for balance again and sooo they look else where . That’s all of course as cancer unfortunately its not ur fault its theres . U have 5 u can have great realationships with . If they aren’t don’t expect true love from the rest. Sure if u know its about sex and can stay away from investing UR cancerian passion then go with anyone but here are ure 5 . Ill list in order I believe
      Pisces, Capricorn, Scorpio , another cancer , Virgo. If ur pretty mature and what they call somewhat self actualized Capricorn will be the best I think. They are talkers so u can listen and show them u care and they cant lie lol. They’ll tell U as we Doo get what seems lazy when were in our shell to get up off ur ass and do this or that. they give great direction and are driven and yet somewhat simplistic. Scorpios Are somewhat baffling and u can feel like U don’t know whats going on but will get jealous and show u luv. Pisces is great will shower u with luv once they luv u but u sometimes have to carry them also . All these are good and bad that’s life , but if u can handle some criticism at times trust me get a Capricorn. They have what U don’t and respect U have what they don’t . Anyways good luck sweetheart don’t blame urself though honestly they lost out!!

  25. i so agree with everything

  26. i agree, cancers suck…i ought to know, im one of them. cant be trusted, lie alot, cant face change and better off dead

    • We’re just bound to our emotions. But that’s no way to degrade our ability to FEEL, unlike most! It is powerful!

  27. I love me, I am a Cancer, love to much, forgive anything, can’t forget about a gemini guys that i know is bad for me but i feel like he is my other half, i am independent, bold, happy must of the time except when the kid drive me nuts…Love singing , dancing working out, my life is good becouse i made up my own security…but i am still hurting for and by love.

  28. Cancers are influenced by other signs because this does not sound too much like me. i almost fell asleep reading this the only thing that matched me was

  29. i (aquarius woman) dated a cancer once and HE was the one that was going out and flirting with other girls. he wasn’t loyal at all! i felt like i was putting everything into our relationship and when he broke up with me he said i was too clingy.

    • Aquarius women sorry U read it wrong thing is were one of those signs that initially peole are attracted too . Ill tell u truthfully Im a 48 cancerian male and When Im in love or even in lust initially attracted to a women Shes the most beautiful thing in this world to me really.

If U cant deal with others being attracted to us that’s something u need to work on because me And CHIME in other cancers will not Cheat On our chosen

  30. Cancer and Leo people are the moon and sun nothing comes betwen them when they eclipse. They are the mother and father sign naturally and are neighbouring signs. It’s all in the stars. Leos and cancers are tight and respect each other. I love cancer people.strong and mechanical and durable fun and always can make you laugh it’s natural for them even when not trying and Leo loves a person that can make them laugh.

  31. Cancer + taurus usually pretty good match. TAurus sensuality compliments CAncers Affectionate nature..they are both romantic,silly, etc..

  32. i hate cancer people! my youngest sister is a cancer and WE DON’T GET ALONG. me and my sister (leo) used to be so close (a bond) until she came along.. she is so CLINGY and POSSESSIVE.. she doesn’t want my leo sister to talk to me.. and so on.. ARGH..
