Libra - Cancer Love Compatibility

     


Sign GraphicLIBRA - CANCER LOVE COMPATIBILITY

What are the chances of success of a Libra-Cancer love match? How compatible are Libra and Cancer 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 Air and Water – 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 approach to life – normally quite sensitive and cautious when someone has the Sun in Cancer, but more rational and outgoing with a Libran Sun.

The emotionally needy – and at times rather moody – Crab can be hard to comprehend for logical Libra who, although very keen on talking things through, isn't that great at relating to others' feelings. There are also some noticeable differences in the things in life that are most important to them – in the case of Libra, their friends and lover – in the case of Cancer, the wider family circle. In a long-term relationship, and especially when kids come along, this can often give the sense of being pulled in conflicting directions.

To be able to function harmoniously together, each has to be prepared to make some compromises. The motherly Crab, in its desire to care for everyone, must not omit to give sufficient quality one-on-one time to Libra – while Libra, who's more of a party animal than the shy and retiring Cancer, has to learn to balance its socializing needs with those of its stay-at-home partner.

LIBRA-CANCER EMOTIONAL COMPATIBILITY

Because both Libra and Cancer desperately want to be thought well of, they try their best to be very aware and considerate of each others’ needs. Those needs can often be quite different, and hard for one another to fulfil, however.

As an Air sign, Libra instinctively seeks to resolve problems rationally and fair-mindedly, while the watery Crab is governed largely by its gut instincts. Although superficially sympathetic, Libra can be surprisingly cool and detached when problems occur and may be unable to provide Cancer with the depth of heart-felt emotional support it so longs for. Libra, on the other hand, may complain that Cancer is incapable of sustaining an objective and logical discussion because it brings feelings into everything.

Due to their shared dislike of discord, Libra and Cancer will, however, tend to shy away from any kind of unpleasantness, preferring to put up with just about anything rather than risk an ugly confrontation. As a result serious emotional issues may be covered up because Libra is too polite and Cancer too emotionally sensitive to broach them. More honesty on the part of Libra and more courage on the part of Cancer will help to avoid minor differences building into something more major.

LIBRA-CANCER SEXUAL COMPATIBILITY

Sexually, Libra and Cancer aren't too badly matched in that both have a powerful sense of romance and a compelling need for companionship. But whereas Libra is sexually turned on mainly by a meeting of minds, what Cancer needs most is a strong heart connection – and while the watery Crab may find Libra a bit too sexually detached and matter of fact, to Libra, Cancer can seem unreasonably insecure and clingy.


LIBRA-CANCER COMPATIBILITY CHALLENGES

Star signs which are three signs or 90° apart in the Zodiac, like Libra and Cancer, normally have to contend with a lot of compatibility challenges. But because good personal relationships are so important to both these signs, and both make a big effort to compromise in the interests of peace and harmony, Libra and Cancer don’t fare quite so badly.

One major issue that may be a cause of strife, at least initially, between a Libra-Cancer twosome is the amount of time and energy the Cancerian is likely to devote to their birth family as opposed to quality one-on-one couple time. Libra wants to keep their love partner all to themselves and can be resentful and jealous of Cancer’s close family ties, especially if Libra doesn’t get on too well with the ‘in-laws’. For Cancer this can give rise to a difficult conflict of loyalties, particularly if Libra forces Cancer to choose between family or partner.
