Cancer and Aries Compatibility:
Love, Sex, Trust and Life
What is the greatest feature about an Cancer-Aries bonding? When the understanding dawns on them that both are batting for the same team, despite being Water and Fire signs, both get along perfectly well. While Aries is perfectly happy drawing and getting all the attention, Cancer is content to keep the backstage in order. Each of them as separate entities makes up for what the other one lacks – thus making them totally equal.
No matter what the age Aries seem very young and it is their confidence that makes them outstrip everyone around them. The glitch is caused by their intolerant and at the same time carefree attitude. Projects that highlight their ego is what they are looking out for. Aries are often seen chasing their own tail – just looking for acceptance – but in this endevour turning thoughtless and impulsive. They patently seek out glitches, when there is absolutely no need to do so. Aries can turn on the charm and practically everybody is attracted by their personality. They are born winners and are always striving after perfection. The Aries can never want to hurt anyone deliberately.
The emotional Moon is the overlord of Cancer, while Aries is ruled by Mars. In keeping with the God of War, Mars, almost every Aries is a miniature soldier ready to meet any and every challenge thrown at him. Cancer is very drawn to the ardent and open nature of Aries – because in contrast they tend to internalize emotions. A feminine energy that is fervid is typical of Cancer – and the Aries are a great help in helping them to let go of that. Just as on earth the tides are controlled by the Moon – affecting all life, Aries rushes in headlong. Cancer is far more sentimental and displays to Aries the means of slowing down and savouring life instead of displaying hyper-active tendencies almost all the time.
The emotional coming together of Aries and Cancer is definitely not run of the mill and can be a tough proposition. Their sense of expression of both these signs is not similar in any way – Aries is spontaneous and bubbling, but Cancers are reticent and react and move at a slower pace. Though both are an excellent foil to each other, the time taken for adjustment is somewhat longer.
Aries is the Sign of Self while Cancer is the Sign of Home.A dynamic common feature they both share is being very very protective about all those that they care about. The shell which is an intrinsic part of their physique is used as a shield whenever there is any sign of trouble looming. Aries does the same, but his method is to make the fullest possible use of his brute strength and guts. Aries gets a sense of emotional security and happy domesticity from Cancer. There is unfortunately also the chance of a fallout. Cancer could have a tendency to build a dream image of Aries and get overly attached to it. This could irritate the Aries who is extremely independent and cannot abide by any sort of binding. However, should Aries manage to take the time off to reassure Pisces that there is no doubt about being loved and wanted; it will go a very long way. Cancer has strong instincts which are right more often than not. It could be an asset to the Aries to listen and avoid unnecessary mistakes – which is the result of being impractical.
By nature a Cancer is intelligent while being guarded and at the same time very profound. There is never any question of misusing their superiority and they make use of it with every bit of humility. This sign is extremely resolute and usually, no matter what the circumstance they are successful. When they care for or love anybody, they are extremely protective – and this includes their family and friends. Humour is used to divert people from noticing their modus operandi and win by changing tracks if required, instead of battling head on. If they are upset, they make themselves scarce and indulge in a prolonged bout of sulking. If one assumed by this that all Cancerians are very easily led and mouldable, they would be wrong. The members of this zodiac sign can dig in their heels if they truly want to achieve something.
When love blooms between Aries and Cancer – it is very obviously a case of opposites attracting. Cancer is subtle and emotional compared to Aries who is impatient and hasty. Of course when Aries is emotional, it is blistering and can totally engulf Cancer. Though Cancer normally prefers a slow pace in any relationship, the whirlwind Aries also has an undeniable appeal and stimulation. If one compares, Aries also finds this sensitivity in Cancer alluring – which, will said and done is a good balance. Problems could brew if the Aries aggression begins to hurt or cancer has a mood swing. The solution is a compromise and both the signs taking quality time to listen to the other and try to truly understand their point of view.
A basic problem which the signs have to learn to combat is being touchy about getting hurt. Aries probably are not even aware of this weakness in their nature – which is inconsistent with the image they like to project. So, when an Aries is wrathful, they immediately negate the fact or become very defensive. Cancers however remain true to their nature. Of course they might well learn to live with each other and evolve at the same time – but their differences are only too apparent. Aries and Cancer are differently motivated and not only is their attitude to life different, their goals too are different. An exchange of their respective features can be enriching.
Cancer and Aries – both come under the category of Cardinal signs. Both have to take lessons in the art of cooperation, though they are admittedly initiators. Aries appears to be the leader – always ready to meet any challenge. However, Cancer too leads – albeit emotionally and at the same time weighing the true nitty gritties of the situation. Compromise comes more easily to a Cancer. Since giving in a tough job for an Aries, Cancer could have to take this in stride.
Relatives and co-workers usually make up a budding relationship between these two signs. The relationship is very typically business oriented. Any romantic relationship usually has its initial stages in a work ambience or a common meeting ground. They end up conversing about either the family or work. An Aries has to win – no matter what the cost. Though winning or losing does not matter all that much to a Cancer, but he does like to lead and achieving their objective at any cost. One way to resolve the issue is to walk at par – side by side with none ahead or behind. It is less traumatic for a Cancer to compromise and so he is usually the one to wave the flag of peace. If an Aries talks out of turn, it is not unusual for a Cancer to become extremely emotional.
Cancer is a Water and Aries a Fire sign. Working in harmony they are a great positive force as then, emotion and action are in conjunction. Aries helps in the Cancer not being so withdrawn, while the Cancer helps Aries to move at a slower pace and be a little soft in all approaches. However, if the Cancer uses emotion to be too manipulative, the fiery Aries enthusiasm might be dampened and even put out. Similarly, if the fiery Aries focuses with too much intensity – the watery Cancer will evaporate or turn emotionally raw. There must be open conversation between the two that is unrestrained – this will make sure of a balance being maintained.
An Aries-Cancer relationship has a wide range of contradictions. The prime difference lies in their attitude towards practically everything in life. A Cancer truly empathizes is more antagonistic and aggressive. In financial matters too – Cancer thinks money is sacrosanct, while Aries regards this as a fundamental need and tends to spend without a care in the world. Aries tends to think of Cancers as being miserly as well as being dawdling and inexpressive. Thanks to their differing on practically every subject, it is likely that there will be frequent clashes. But, if allowances are made for each other, a truly fulfilling relationship replete with love and fervour can be enjoyed by both.
Both these signs feel very strongly about their close ones and care deeply for them; however, their ways of expression are radically different. Between siblings and relatives the relationship is easy going and without knots. As buddies – old and new, it is almost the same situation. They are always ready at hand to help. Clashes arise when both dream (and at the same time!) dream of being at the top. Commercial projects can be very profitable if one thing is focussed on at a time. Money matters should be handled by the Cancer. Where matters of love are concerned, Caners are a bit stodgy and Aries aggressive and fast moving this is likely to cause major problems. As parents both are ‘tops’ as all they want is to provide their offspring with the best of all that is available.
