Cancer and Aquarius Compatibility
Cancers and Aquarius both care about the people they are committed to and extremely loyal to their partners. In certain aspects, this pair helps to complete each other. For example, cancers help Aquarius connect their softer side with affection and compassion, whereas Aquarius helps inspire Cancers to love themselves.
These zodiacs generally do not form a very conventional pair, and they might have a very difficult relationship. But they can find certain attractive aspects in their relationship and can form a connection that they can build on. So even though they are completely different from each other, there might be an undeniable link between them.
But their relationship will never be void of hurdles and hardships, and it will be very hard for them to cope with each other and form a harmonious relationship.
Cancers feel that Aquarians can be quite helpful. Though grounded
Cancers are prone to change suddenly and it is somewhat of a difficult
proposition to understand them. Aquarians enjoy throwing the Cancers out
of kilter, but find it difficult to understand them. It is a foible of
Aquarius that they do not like hiding anything from their partners and
hence cannot quite comprehend why Cancer has to keep secrets. A vacation
or a break becomes necessary when both feel unable to cope with the
other’s eccentricities. This refreshes their relationship.
Aquarius and Cancer are Air and Water signs respectively. Life is
constant exploration for the Aquarius and a cerebral exercise. Cancer on
the other hand is far more grounded and stops every now and then to
think about what is going on. Aquarius on the other hand constantly
would like to know what else is there. Their respective points of view
are difficult to understand and there could be conflicts arising from
too casual an attitude of the Aquarius and an ultra-sensitive ambience
created by the Cancer. Cancer constantly demands more and more while
this only has the effect of pushing the Cancer further and further away.
If both these signs can only learn to accept their difference, then
they can not only come together, but also celebrate their diversity.
Though both Aquarius and Cancer are outstanding in their own right,
there are a lot of inherent differences between them, which makes
getting along a tough task. Cancers tend to be a lot more reticent,
while Aquarians are a lot more outgoing. There have to be a lot of
adjustments if this relationship has to work.
Cancers tend to focus a lot on money and they are very single-minded in
whatever they set out to do. Of course it is also a fact that they don’t
mind working very hard for the money and possess an endless amount of
love and respect for their family. They are very graceful about whatever
emotion they express. A leaning towards chivalry genuinely makes them
very happy and contented. Whether it is their personal or professional
life, they are very vigilant and intelligent. They are by nature
empathic and so are greatly treasured by most people around them. The
only problems that arise could be from their mood swings and nobody is
ever very sure about what to expect – the Cancer could be comic,
brooding or even belligerent. Secrecy could pose a serious problem as
they will go a long way to preserve what they want to hide. People who
do not value money or time are acutely disliked by them.
Aquarius is a Fixed and Cancer a Cardinal sign. Both are dogged about
[pursuing their goals until they reach the very end. Having this kind of
mentality of perseverance, their relationship is greatly valued. If
Aquarius ever finds himself in a spot, they will discover the true worth
of the Cancer. Though apparently reticent and retiring, they are very
unbending and can dig their heels in. Further, they will unhesitatingly
pull emotional strings on the people they love and care about. This can
also be an irritant to an Aquarius. However, if there is a common goal
in mind, they get along fine.
By nature Aquarians are rebellious and do not like to do whatever
everybody else is doing, following social norms of the day. They are
very obstinate, but have no problems about accepting change. However,
changing their opinions is another kettle of fish altogether and
hypocrisy is another element that they have zero level tolerance for.
Like a typical social butterfly, an Aquarian has an abundance of
acquaintances and friends too. At the same time it must be admitted that
they hardly ever verbalize what they genuinely do not mean and stick
with their work once they have made a promise. They are very good at
calculating what is likely to take place in the future and thus
generally achieve brilliant results. As a genre Aquarians are quite
brilliant and have well rounded talents. There is no problem at all
about going in for a long term relationship; however, it is rather more
casual than a relation in accordance with accepted social norms.
Both Aquarius and Cancer are motivated and very goal oriented. Though
both want to have their own way, neither likes an open conflict. Cancer
is somewhat traditional and prefers the old-fashioned norms. In
comparison to Aquarius, morally they are much more conservative. On the
contrary, Aquarius takes a very modern attitude and thanks to the rather
stodgy attitude of Cancer sometimes almost goes to sleep. Every once in
a while dull routine brings great comfort to the Cancer. There could be
an element of excitement and mystery that the Cancer feels regarding
the Aquarian activities, but sometimes there is also a sense of
frustration at trying to keep pace with the thought process of the
Aquarius. The solid foundation of the Cancer appeals to the Aquarius,
but not the over possessiveness.
In certain arenas Cancer might find it extremely tough to get along with
the Aquarius, while in others they end up having a lot of fun. In the
family sphere, they have a perfectly amicable relationship. Since both
are basically positive people, with a little bit of effort they can work
very well together. However, so far as business is concerned, it is not
a very good idea because their value system as regards money is very
different. But, having a total appreciation for success both are willing
to give it a very good shot. A tougher proposition is marriage and a
love relationship since their expressions of love are completely
different. However, with time such positive feelings can grow and they
can become the best of friends. When they become parents Aquarians are
good friends with their children – thus making for great smoothness
within the family. Cancers are extremely protective.
Saturn (Work Energy) and Uranus (Rebellion) are the rulers of Aquarius;
the overlord of Cancer is the Moon (Emotions). Saturn is restrictive,
cold and very much a Masculine energy. The Moon on the other hand
possesses energy that is glowing and feminine. Uranus focusses on all
that is irregular and unusual. Growth and domesticity is the focal point
of the Moon, which is concerned with domesticity. Both of these become
the focal point in the lives of Cancers. Saturn is concerned with
labouring hard and the restraint that is needed for success; Uranus is
symbolic of forward thought. This is absolutely appropriate for the
Aquarius whose mind is always looking towards the future and are
completely unconcerned about all that hard work entails. Cancers impart
the need for feminine reactions and bring to the Aquarius home comfort
and security. Cancer teaches how to be open while Aquarius imparts the
lesson of detachment. If at a point of time the Aquarius gets derailed,
they have the uncanny ability to get back on course and reassess goals
and values. Though not always cold, the Aquarius could profit by the
Moon based influence of Cancer that is feminine and warm.
Cancer does not at all like the inquisitive trend of the Aquarius. There
are a great number of secrets that are ferreted out and that are what
hurt the privacy and dignity of the Cancer. This makes them distinctly
uneasy. The fact that Cancer is very difficult to predict is such an
annoyance to Aquarius that there can be serious differences of opinion
between them – which in turn is because of their differing temperaments.
Both try to coax the other into following them. When Cancer tries to do
this, they are usually unsuccessful because Aquarius can also dig in
their heels.It must be admitted that sometimes they do give in – which
restores the balance in their relationship. Financial security is of
prime importance and that never fails to cheer up Cancer because they
know they have something to fall back on during tough times.
If a romance comes about between an Aquarius and Pisces, it cannot be
anything other than opposites attracting. While in their approach to
life Cancer is emotive and passionate Aquarius is more avant-garde and
offbeat. Cancer becomes absolutely introspective every now and then;
Aquarius is absolutely outgoing and enjoys a vibrant social life.
Somehow if a medium is found to adjust both attitudes – true happiness
is the result.
Even as the relations between Cancer and Aquarius grow, problems are
likely to grow alongside. When the Cancer is feeling melancholic,
Aquarius ought to be supportive and help them traverse memory lane when
happiness abounded. If there is any desire on the part of the Aquarius
for love to truly blossom, Cancer should be spoiled and coddled with a
lot of attention. In turn Cancer must also make an effort not to be too
pushy or questioning. It will only have the effect of making the
Aquarius feeling hemmed in and irritable. If the Aquarius is sometimes
absent-minded, Cancer can step in and help to focus on the immediate
goal at hand. The Aquarius can be a little selfish at times and forget
about the needs of anybody else. At this juncture Cancer can intervene
and help them to find a midway path.
When Cancer-Aquarius make the final decision to come together, they are
an irrepressible force since two very different energies are combined.
Both find their own natural balance and enjoy themselves because of
their differences. Love should not be allowed to be frightened away
because of any differences.
Personality Traits of Cancer and Aquarius
Cancer crabs are extremely emotional, spiteful and seem to have a certain temper and mood swings are very common. However, they are devoted to their loved ones, and they also grow extremely fond of their partners, which often leads to an unhealthy relationship. They value their friends and loved ones and go to any extent to protect and defend them.
Aquarius are completely different from the other zodiac signs, and they are always eccentric and energetic in their fight for freedom. But at times, they can also be very shy and quiet, and they might feel afraid to share their true feelings with someone. On the other hand, they are extremely intelligent and think deep in every aspect of life. They tend to look at people without any prejudice, and that is an extremely special characteristic that is unique for this zodiac sign.
They can easily adapt to any environment, and they can get along with the people they are surrounded with, but they also have a strong urge to stay alone and away from others so that they can find themselves.
Love Compatibility of Cancer and Aquarius
Some couples are just not meant to be with one another, and in most scenarios, this is the case with Cancer and Aquarius couples. Cancers are overtly emotional beings, and they have an affectionate, nurturing and traditional nature. Whereas Aquarius are logical, intellectual and unconventional, and they require freedom in their relationship.
In most cases, several incompatible zodiacs can find their way through their differences. Still, when it comes to the crab and the water bearer, they generally have a really hard time coping with one another. The main issue with this couple is that they don't understand each other, and there might be no chemistry between them.
When looking at the basic differences between these two zodiac signs, we can see that Cancer is a cardinal earth sign, whereas Aquarius is a fixed air sign. So Cancers can easily embrace changes, and they tend to stay in touch with their feelings for others and are known to be initiators. But, on the other hand, whereas Aquarius tends to be fixed on their goals, they only move forward once they have succeeded.
Sexual Compatibility of Cancer and Aquarius
A sexual relationship between a Cancer and Aquarius leads to stress. Cancers are known for their sensitive and emotional nature governed by the Moon, and thus they can easily create distance with their partners if they feel the need to create strong boundaries.
On the other hand, Aquarius is known to be innovators, but they are a pretty fixed sign simultaneously, and thus they are set in their ways.
In most cases, when the Cancer partners are scared that their Aquarius partners will not be able to mould themselves based on their partner's needs, the Cancers generally create boundaries. This is because Aquarius is filled with energy, and they need to ground it, and one of the ways to ground their energy is through sex. But Cancers, on the other hand, are not very convinced with the situation, and they feel that they only need to have an emotional bonding with their partners.
But if Aquarius can slow themselves down and Cancers can bring down their boundaries, they have an exciting sexual experience together. They can form a perfect match if they can get over their shortcomings as Cancers will help offer tenderness and emotions, and Aquarius will help keep up with exciting sex life.
Trust And Communication of Cancer and Aquarius
Cancers are extremely loyal to their partners, and they respect honesty in a relationship. The only time they don't share everything with their partners is when they are scared of their aggressive reactions or start hurting from inside out.
In most cases, the overly sensitive crabs find it difficult to see their feelings with Aquarius, leading to trust issues between them. Aquarius have a very liberal nature which their Cancer partners do not understand. But one of the most complicated aspects of their relationship is that both are strictly against lying to their partners but still do not trust each other enough to share their feelings.
Intellectually speaking, Cancers and Aquarius can join activities as Cancers are sensitive enough to pay attention to every detail when Aquarius fails to do so. When they are together, they can help each other to succeed with their grand ideas. But the main issue remains that they have trouble communicating with one another as they don't have a great deal of understanding between them.
Mars rules cancers, and even though it is one of the fastest heavenly bodies, they are not very fast when reading between the lines. Aquarius generally find it difficult to express their innermost feelings, and Cancers can't read their minds.
The only way they can have a guaranteed relationship is if Aquarius can see their Cancer partners as an adventure that needs to be explored. This helps to offer them enough space to explore each other and influence various aspects of the relationship.
Values and Emotions of Cancer and Aquarius
Aquarius has an unconventional nature, whereas Cancers require peace, which is hard for them to reconcile. Aquarius are generally rebellious, and the cosy and homely Cancers are disturbed by their nature. Aquarius can stress up their lives, and they can offer too much information that might seem overwhelming to them. Aquarius are fond of a fast-paced life, whereas cancers look for something subtle and deep empathy.
The way this pair expresses their love is completely different from one another, but they are both family-centric, so it can easily be based on kids and family. Cancers are predestined to be family-centric, and thus when they come in a relationship with Aquarius, they can take up all the responsibilities.
In most cases, when this pair falls in love, they try to build on it. However, Aquarius takes it as a challenge and tries to understand their partners' love and stability.
Cancers value knowledge but not as much as Aquarius, But this can help form a connection between them. If they can nurture this bond and set apart their other differences, they can pave a long-term path for their relationship and eventually help it grow.
Cancers value stability and intimacy, whereas Aquarius values freedom and intellect, so certain differences between them might be very hard to overcome. Still, if they have true feelings for one another, they will try their best to break the boundaries and stay together.
