Cancer: June 21 - July 21

Cancer Compatibility

Cancer is a water sign - emotional, creative, and nostalgic. As such, Cancer natives are looking for partners who can appreciate how deeply their feelings run and who are looking for committed relationships meant to last a lifetime. Their inherent nature means they are best suited to matches with either their fellow water signs or complimentary earth signs.

Best Matches for Cancer

Cancer or Pisces: Dual Cancer couples, as well as Cancer/Pisces couples both get a perfect compatibility rating of "10" from us. It is rare enough for a sign to have a single perfect zodiac match, let alone two. Read the detailed analysis for these matches by choosing from the appropriate sign and gender pairings above.

Taurus: Both Cancer and Taurus possess a deep-seated need to build security and a comfortable home where they can live happy. Commitment and a sensitive approach to family and relationships are important to both signs as well, ensuring a harmonious love connection that will stand the test of time. These two will bond closely over a likely mutual interest in art, food, or music and spend many a happy night at home together in sensual bliss.

Scorpio: Although Scorpio can have a difficult time getting along with many other signs, Cancer is actually one of the very best matches for this intense and passionate sign. Both signs are possessive, but each rather enjoys this about the other, as it makes them feel loved and wanted. Plus, Scorpio's sheer passion and drive will help balance out Cancer's natural shyness and introversion.

Other Best Matches: Capricorn.

Worst Matches for Cancer

Aquarius or Sagittarius: Although the Aquarius/Cancer compatibility is rated a point lower than the Sagittarius/Cancer compatibility, it is a close call. The unchecked honesty that a Sag brings to the table is often to much for the sensitive crab to handle. Read more about either of these couples by reading the specifics by choosing the correct gender available above.

Gemini: In most cases, these two signs will simply be far too different to really find enough common ground to make things work. For starters, Cancer is so introverted and home-loving as to seem downright hermit-like at times while Gemini is a one of the most social signs of the entire zodiac. Gemini's deep-seated need for change, risk and variety will not gel well with Cancer's need for security, tradition, and commitment either.

Libra (but only if Cancer is the Woman): Cancer and Libra approach life from two totally different points of view, making it difficult to impossible for them to ever see eye to eye. Cancer feels its way through life, while Libra is all about thought. Cancer is introverted and prefers to spend most of its time at home or enveloped in creative pursuits, while Libra is extroverted and prefers to spend its time around people or on the way to the next party. Libra will find Cancer's brooding ways to be frustrating, while Cancer will only feel unloved and unappreciated because of Libra's light-hearted approach to relationships. However, a Cancer Man Libra Woman tends to work out better. Find out why by using the Cancer compatibility ratings listed above for a detailed gender specific analysis.
