Scorpio - Cancer Love Compatibility



What are the chances of success of a Scorpio-Cancer love match? How compatible are Scorpio and Cancer emotionally and sexually – and what are their relationship strengths and challenges?

Well, traditionally this is considered to be one of the most harmonious Sun Sign combinations, with good prospects for long-term love compatibility and happiness!

Belonging to the same element of Water, Scorpio and Cancer are both ruled by their heart, possess the same high level of sensitivity and share a similarly intuitive approach to life. Each sign also has a genuine respect for each other’s talents and abilities – Cancer for Scorpio’s courage and strength of character, Scorpio for Cancer’s nurturing and home-making skills – and are able to interact creatively in a variety of ways.

Difficulties may arise only as a result of the moody nature of these two signs – with tough-guy Scorpio much less willing and able to talk about its feelings than Cancer who can't help but wear its heart on its sleeve. If the motherly Crab makes the mistake of fussing too much, digging too deep or acting too clingy, it will soon feel the fearsome sting of the Scorpion, who never divulges its secrets or lets itself be controlled.

In general though, there’s far too much congeniality and goodwill between Scorpio and Cancer for them to fall out in a major way, and the slight element of tension present between them merely fans the flames of the strong attraction which very often exists. In many ways, these star signs were made for each other. The little Crab is always on the lookout for someone to take care of it and who better than powerful Scorpio – always happy to lend a shoulder for others to lean on.

Scorpio and Cancer are both capable of forming exceptionally deep emotional attachments – and in partnership with each other will become very closely and strongly bonded. The level of mutual devotion in a Scorpio-Cancer relationship is potentially unparallelled. But when things go wrong (and with so much intensity on both sides, they will do occasionally), the insecurity and pain both people will suffer can be equally devastating.

Although Scorpio and Cancer are equally emotionally vulnerable, each tends to express their hurt feelings in quite different ways. There’s no mistaking when Watery Cancer is unhappy or upset: it immediately goes into a sulk, may quickly get tearful, and looks for immediate comfort and reassurance. Scorpio is no less (and probably far more) moody than Cancer, but because it’s a much more self-controlled character who hates showing any weaknesses, it tends to hide its wounds, while secretively plotting its revenge.


Sexually, Scorpio and Cancer are well matched in that both are instinctively attuned to the other's desires and both are capable of an intense and profound emotional connection. Passions run deep on both sides here, which is a big bonus when everything is lovey-dovey between these two signs. But when feelings of sexual insecurity and jealousy – a common problem for both of them – rear their ugly head, these can sometimes get magnified out of all proportion.


Too few to mention! In terms of star sign compatibility, this is one of the most promising and potentially successful pairings!
