Sagittarius and Cancer Compatibility:
Love, Sex, Trust and Life
On the face of it Cancers appear stern and unapproachable. However, if one in a bothers to delve into the depths, then it is abundantly clear that Cancers are who subtle and yet intelligent; they are conscious of their superiority and yet are humble in their use of it. Cancers are quietly determined and by sheer dint of determination almost always succeed in achieving their goals under the toughest of conditions. Another characteristic of Cancers is a pronounced sense of humour and leadership acumen. Of course a deep and abiding love of the people they care about sometimes makes them change their minds – and of course if the cause if worthwhile. A love for the music and arts is yet another facet of their personality along with tradition and values. Family and parents occupy a special place in their hearts and protectiveness comes to the fore in such instances.
The outlook in life of Sagittarius and Cancer are widely divergent. Feelings and convention is the guideline of the Cancer, while it is more likely that the Sagittarius will restlessly move about from place to place. It could be a very difficult proposition for Sagittarius to take in the Cancer mood swings. In turn Cancer could find it tough going to accept the roving feet of the Sagittarian. What the Cancer can offer is a home, comfortable and secure, where the Sagittarius can safely find a refuge for his dreams, hopes and desires. The free spirit of the Sagittarian can lend the more sedate Cancer some excitement that can be very enlivening.
Sagittarians are optimistic social beings whose thoughts are skyrocketing and making them keen observers. They always have a plethora of friends around them and it is on rare occasions that they are found in solitude. By nature this sign is extremely blunt and do not even understand the meaning of tact. For a Sagittarian diplomacy is the equivalent of hypocrisy. There is no doubt that they are extremely chirpy by nature, but at the same time a vein of scepticism always runs through them. Sagittarians are full of contradictions - they are intellectual, philosophical and optimistic; at the same time they are erratic, dogged and patternless. Sagittarians are honest to the point of being excessively blunt; once they decide that truth has to be out, there is nobody that can stop them from speaking their mind.
Jupiter (Philosopher) is the overlord of Sagittarius and Cancer is ruled by the Moon (Emotions) which is its overlord. The main focus of Jupiter is movement from place to place, good luck and expansion. A mingling of expansion and feminine and masculine energy helps in sustaining both. If both are labouring towards a common goal, then their combined energy is very effective.
Thanks to the genuineness and compassion of Sagittarius and Cancer, both are thoroughly conversant with each other’s emotions. As time goes by it usually dawns on Cancer that Sagittarius can more easily multiply money and in a shorter period of time. If the times are turbulent, Cancer still needs dollops of reassurance and love. It is the innate curiosity of Sagittarian that curiously makes the bonds between these two signs stronger. The Sagittarian jokes might seem a little outré. But, with time and when the Cancer understands they have no issues at all. Though Cancer does try to teach the Sagittarian how to be even a tad more sensitive, they realize that this is a pipe dream and just not possible.
Sagittarius and Cancer are Fire and Water signs respectively. For Sagittarius liberty is all important, while being grounded and having an emotional haven is far more important for Cancer. Their needs are reflected in their attitude to life and relationships. As single entities it might not be possible for them to achieve very much, but as a couple they can really make things happen. Any conflict that might arise can very easily be sorted out if the value of their connection is realised and the values of the other respected.
The main reason behind any discord between Cancer and Sagittarius is more often than not related to finances. Cancer has a decided preference for saving for the future, while Sagittarian like to go on expansive present binges. They can always come to a mutual decision about this glitch. Cancer could express their unhappiness about the situation by weeping helplessly or making biting remarks. The sight of the weeping Cancer wakes Sagittarius to the fact that some grave mistake has been made and thus they are forced to find means to console them. When some time has gone by, even Cancer realizes that they have been too harsh and they try to re-create a peaceful ambience. Since Sagittarians place immense value on their freedom, Cancers must learn how to balance protectiveness and possessiveness. This will prevent the Sagittarius from feeling claustrophobic.
When Sagittarius and Cancer fall in love, both must ensure patience and time to let the relationship grow and expand of its own accord. As this develops both find they have ever so much to give to each other. Initially it appears that Sagittarius is just in for the thrills, while Cancer is just looking for emotional security. In the early stages of the relationship Cancer might demand more of a commitment than is feasible for the Sagittarian. However, with the passing of time, the sturdy emotional support of the Cancer is greatly appreciated by the Sagittarian.
No matter what the genre, Sagittarians have a very amiable and joyous relationship with each other. There is never any spirit of competition and both make conscious efforts to uplift the other and bring about some positive change in them. However, it is also a fact that as professional business partners, it might not be a very favourable relationship. Any business needs a slag period when there has to be routine hard labour, without any obvious reward. Sagittarius tends to get tired of doing the same thing for any length of time. In this instance it is the Cancer who has to play the primary role. The love angle between the two has many different shades – all depending on the type and quality of their interaction. There is an unique bonding between parents and children. A Sagittarian parent is the best possible friend the children can have and there could be no more protective parent than Cancer.
Sagittarian and Cancer are Mutable and Cardinal signs respectively. Cancer is good at instigating new plans, while Sagittarius moves from idea to idea and plan to plan as and how the spirit moves them. Outside the purview of the relationship they share, Cancer must allow the Sagittarian lover plenty of freedom to wander wherever they please. This will make a world of difference to their relationship. The ideas that Sagittarius has become bored with and moved on to fresher pastures can be developed and given a fresh lease of life by Cancer. In turn Sagittarius teaches the Cancer how much good it does to be broadminded instead of having a rigid and fixed determination.
After moving along seamlessly for some time, Sagittarius and Cancer could find some glitches developing. Neither can stand the thought of being dominated by the other. Though the Sagittarian might not exactly to be the leader, what is positive anathema to him is the thought off following any kind of orders given by another. They are fully capable of either following or totally ignoring any order given by Cancer – it has to be according to their will. With the passing of time Cancer realizes that while the initial stages of the relationship with a Sagittarian might be difficult, ultimately they too learn not to be excessively sensitive. When this happens they strike just the right note with Sagittarius and there is an abundance of good will and bonhomie all around. The Cancer will be able to be a lot more mature when they do not allow their sensitivity to be overwhelmed by the blunt remarks of the Sagittarius. The association of a Sagittarius and Cancer is confusing and stimulating at the same time. Sagittarians are all for the unexpected and astonishment; but Cancer feels more at ease where everything is known and predictable. However, given a little bit of time there will be growth and a very strong relationship.
If Cancer can permit the Sagittarian to offer his kind of security, that is the most positive factor in this relationship. There is a very special kind of security that both can offer each other once both learn to accept their differences with an open heart. If there are no blockages so far as communication is concerned and the differences are taken as positive values, the relationship between a Sagittarius and Cancer will be grounded and joyous.
