Sagittarius Woman Cancer Man

Our Sagittarius Woman and Cancer Man compatibility rating is 5. Because your elements are antagonistic and your qualities are different, this is a difficult pair of signs for romantic relationships. The planets are sympathetic and provide some help.

For this to work well there needs to be some change and understanding on both sides.

The Elements

Fire vs Water - Fire Signs, like yours, tend to be more outgoing and impulsive, while Water Signs, like Cancer, tend to be more subjective and nurturing. Because your two sign's astral qualities are not the same, there are likely to be differences between you that are hard to resolve.

The Qualities

Mutable vs Cardinal - Sagittarius is a Mutable Sign; adaptable and communicative. Cancer is a Cardinal Sign; leadership-oriented and, in a way, commanding. These qualities are not necessarily bad for one another, but the discord between your astral elements makes it difficult for your inner natures to cooperate.

The Planets

Jupiter vs the Moon & Jupiter - Your ruling planet is Jupiter, and Cancer's ruling planet is the Moon; their combination in predictive astrology is famous for improving the quality of life. This is why Sagittarius and Cancer are so good together in business. Plus, your planet is "exalted" in Cancer, which means that he will always look up to you in some way or another.

Love and Romance

Being involved in a relationship with a Cancer Man may be a bit delicate for your taste, Sagittarius. Although he tends to be funny, charming and somewhat old-fashioned in a charming way, he can also be quite possessive. He likes to know where his things are, and where people stand. He's likely to trust you because of your honesty, but your direct and freedom-loving nature may stimulate his suspicions, and your frank way of expressing yourself may unset his sensitive and tender nature. The chemistry between you is good, but you're probably not the type of person to constantly express regret. You may find that you feel restricted and limited by his security-conscious ways, but are likely to be impressed by how devoted and even funny he can be. This relationship may require effort, but after you think about how he treats you, you may find that it's worth the work.

The Keys to Success

Reconcile your different approaches to finances.

Although he can be funny and charming, he is also serious - especially when it comes to money. Extravagance and speculation are things that he's really cautious about. In business the two of you could be very happy, and benefit from your different attitudes, but this could be a major obstacle in a romantic relationship. He will, however, come to trust you fairly quickly, and will loosen up his rigid stance about things in time.

Adjust your behaviors for his emotions.

You may have to adjust your behaviors and attitudes in order to cope with a Cancer's changing moods and powerful emotions. He's a very sensitive person, and he's protective. He's driven to protect you, but he's basically an introvert, and tries to protect himself from heartbreak.

Laugh with each other, not at each other.

Spontaneity, impulsiveness and your tendency to be openly truthful are certainly qualities in you that he worries about. He doesn't understand how you can put so much energy into having fun, but he will join in. Try to avoid jests and jokes with him at the center, and he will do the same for you. Over time, there can be deep trust and understanding between you and him, but you'll have to work on the relationship together, and do it before things get too serious. If you're already involved with a Cancer, immediately start attempting to gain his trust; everything else will follow.

Final Score: Sagittarius Woman Cancer Man compatibility = 50%.
