CANCER - ARIES LOVE COMPATIBILITY
What are the chances of success of a Cancer-Aries love match? How compatible are Cancer and Aries emotionally and sexually – and what are their relationship strengths and challenges?
Well, traditionally this combination is considered to be quite difficult! When two people are born under conflicting elements – here Water and Fire – it can be hard for them to fully understand where one another are coming from and their level of love compatibility is likely to be quite poor.
Tensions can arise due to their contrasting ways of going about things – normally quite assertively and boldly when someone has the Sun in Aries, but much more sensitively and cautiously with a Cancerian Sun. Fearless Aries may see the little Crab as rather feeble and wimpish; on the other hand, to gentle and caring Cancer, the Ram's steam-roller approach can seem unfamiliarly aggressive and a bit scary.
There are some notable differences in what's most important to Cancer and Aries in life – in the case of Aries, independence and freedom, in the case of Cancer, home and family – and in a long-term relationship, this can often give the sense of being pulled in totally conflicting directions.
Because Fire and Water have a natural tendency to extinguish each other, in order to be able to function harmoniously together, each of these signs has to be very careful not to cancel the other one out. For Aries the challenge is to learn not to ride roughshod over Cancer’s delicate feelings, while Cancer mustn't allow its fears and hang-ups to dampen Aries’ natural enthusiasm and drive.
CANCER-ARIES EMOTIONAL COMPATIBILITY
The characteristic emotional responses of the signs Cancer and Aries really couldn’t be much more different. The belligerent Ram is unafraid of, and actually thrives on, arguments and confrontations, while the peace-loving Crab seeks emotional harmony and security above all else.
As a result Cancer may be too fearful of voicing its true needs and feelings, vainly hoping that Aries will intuitively pick up on them – which of course it never will. What the Crab wants most is emotional closeness, comfort and nurturing, but the self-sufficient Ram has no real need for such things in its life.
CANCER-ARIES SEXUAL COMPATIBILITY
Sexually, Cancer and Aries aren't particularly well matched!
The red-hot Ram is often too impatient and forceful for slow-moving Cancer, while for Aries, the Crab can seem too shy and diffident and much too easily hurt. For things to work sexually between these two, Aries needs to show a little more emotional empathy, while Cancer has to overcome its sexual insecurities and be prepared to come out of its shell.
CANCER-ARIES COMPATIBILITY CHALLENGES
Given that a Cancer-Aries couple faces a higher than average level of compatibility challenges, their best chance of success in a love relationship is to exploit their stark personality differences to their joint advantage and work together as a team.
Irrespective of gender, ideally the Aries individual should be the one to wear the pants in this relationship and go out and do battle in the big bad world, while the Cancerian takes on the running of the home and fulfils a more selfless, nurturing role. In practice, however, this may be very difficult to achieve.
CANCER-ARIES COMPATIBILITY SCORE: 3/10
