Our Libra Woman and Cancer Man compatibility rating is 7. The elemental natures of your signs are antagonistic to one another, and the qualities cause friction between your ideals as a result. The ruling planets work well together, but the exalted planets represent opposite drives.
This relationship can be strong as long as there is plenty of respect, consideration, and affection for each other.
Air and Water - Your need for freedom and movement that comes from being born in an Air Sign, clashes with his desire for stillness and depth, due to strength of the Water element. Getting them to work together will require concessions on both your parts.
Both are Cardinal - The astral qualities of your signs are the same. This time, however they compete with one another, instead of harmonizing, because of the discordant nature of the elements.
Venus & Saturn vs the Moon & Jupiter - Venus, your ruling planet, gives you your powerful charm, and Saturn, who is exalted in your sign, gives you your incisive logic. The Moon gives him his need for security, and Jupiter gives him his need for comfort and security. These planets can work together marvelously, but it takes work and compromise on both your parts.
A Cancer Man will find you exciting, and have many attributes that attract you as well. His sense of humor and his appreciation of your rational thinking and good taste are bound to have endeared you to each other very quickly. You'll find that he understands your mood swings because he has them too. He's likely to be a bit old fashioned, which you may find charming. But there are differences between you that can turn the tide of what seems to be a fairy-tale romance. You may appreciate his patience, but that patience is the result of his natural caution. While you enjoy money for what it can do, he has an almost overwhelming fear of poverty and a need for security. He doesn't mind waiting to take such an important step in life, and no matter how much charm and reasoning you use to get him to speed things up, it's not likely that he will. He's also suspicious, and his imagination can turn a friendship into a hurtful affair. If you have favorable combinations in your individual horoscopes, this may turn into a superb relationship; otherwise, it's one that requires a lot of hard work.
Cancer Men are usually devoted to their families, especially their mothers. If you can charm her, he's yours. Even at that, you may feel like you're competing with her, until your care and affection displaces hers in his mind; and he will take plenty of time to change his inner world.
You're likely to find out before too long that Cancer Men can be quite possessive, and even jealous. You may feel that he's stifling your social life, your career or even your creativity before very long, and this does not sit well with your freewheeling, Airy nature. Make sure to include him in your activities with your friends; his imagination and pessimism might take a back seat to the truth if he can see it.
You can moderate many of his troublesome characteristics through putting more effort into being sensitive to his feelings. He's basically self-centered, and because of your constant probing and analysis of the world outside of you, it's likely that you'll tend to overlook the cues or not realize the importance of one's feelings when making a logical decision.
Final Score: Libra Woman Cancer Man compatibility = 70%.
