CANCER - VIRGO LOVE COMPATIBILITY
What are the chances of success of a Cancer-Virgo love match? How compatible are Cancer and Virgo emotionally and sexually – and what are their relationship strengths and challenges?
Sun Signs which are two signs apart from each other, such as Cancer and Virgo, are ruled by complementary elements, here Water and Earth, and for this reason are traditionally considered to get on very well in a love relationship! What makes these signs so compatible is that the two are linked by sufficient similarities to allow them to function harmoniously together, yet at the same time there are enough differences to provide an alternative perspective and create that all important spark of excitement.
In this case both Cancer and Virgo are natural born carers with the same desire to look after – and at times fuss rather unnecessarily over – each other. Cancer and Virgo, both big worriers, tend to have a lot of sympathy for each other's little anxieties and can provide each other with strong mutual support in a long-term relationship. Actually, they often make ideal partners, both being talented home-makers, with the Crab providing the loving touch, while Virgo looks after the practicalities.
Cancer and Virgo are somewhat unalike, of course, in that while Virgo’s strengths are its pragmatism and attention to detail, Cancer takes a more intuitive and sensitive approach. And whereas Virgo tends to be quite down-to-earth and emotionally self-contained, the watery Crab is much more concerned with feelings. However, because these traits balance each other well, they have the potential to be a highly successful team!
CANCER-VIRGO EMOTIONAL COMPATIBILITY
Each in their own way, Cancer and Virgo tend to be quite moody at times, but may have difficulty in understanding the source of the other’s discontentment. Virgo frets a lot about getting everything perfect at a material level, and becomes very irritable when its standards aren’t met. Cancer is far less fussy and judgemental, but prone to moods of melancholy, sentimentality and nostalgia which its more logical and down-to-earth partner may find hard to relate to.
Cancer and Virgo are both capable of great devotion to their lover and would both do almost anything to help them. However, each sign expresses its love in a different way, Earth sign Virgo being most ‘in its element’ when carrying out practical, concrete tasks while Water sign Cancer is a lot stronger on sympathy, tenderness and compassion.
There may be occasions when cool-headed Virgo despairs of the Crab’s frequent emotional ups and downs, or when Virgo’s unemotional and somewhat critical approach gives Cancer the impression it is rather cold-hearted. But despite these differences, Cancer and Virgo usually muddle along well in a domestic situation and together make highly conscientious parents.
CANCER-VIRGO SEXUAL COMPATIBILITY
Sexually, Cancer and Virgo have much in common. Love, for these star signs, is all about nurturing, both having a powerful need for safety and stability, and both going to a lot of trouble to ensure the other's satisfaction. Okay, with its fondness for techniques, Virgo may take a rather more mechanical approach to sex than the emotionally needy Crab, who may feel Virgo is a bit too cool and matter-of-fact at times. But since both are willing to work hard at getting their sexual relationship right, these issues can usually easily be overcome.
CANCER-VIRGO COMPATIBILITY CHALLENGES
Striking a balance between Virgo’s no-nonsense practicality on the one hand, and Cancer’s intuitive, feelings-oriented approach on the other hand is the fundamental compatibility challenge of this star sign pairing.
Virgo has to understand that there are dilemmas in life which can’t be solved by commonsense alone. Big-hearted, caring Cancer must realize it can only look after others effectively if it stays level-headed and keeps its feet firmly on the ground. Learning from each other, absorbing some of the other’s best qualities, and adapting to whichever approach is most appropriate in a particular situation, will turn Cancer and Virgo into a highly effective team.
CANCER-VIRGO COMPATIBILITY SCORE: 7/10
