A Compatibility Guide for Cancerians

Are you a Cancerian, or do you have a friend, relative or partner born under that sign?

Cancerian Sun with Aries Sun

The approach to life for these two are poles apart.  The Aries wonders why the Cancerian has to make life so complicated.  It’s straightforward isn’t it?  And the Cancerian wonders how the Aries can fail to get emotionally involved.  The Crab may sometimes judge the Aries pronouncements as insensitive.  It is not the easiest of connections.

Cancerian Sun with Taurus Sun

These two both enjoy domestic activities, so the combination can make for domestic bliss, or a great team in the kitchen.  A harmonious pair, who can create a nurturing and supportive environment for others.

Cancerian Sun with Gemini Sun

Cancerians may be too emotional for the Gemini, and Gemini could be too unemotional for the Cancerian.  However, both of them are changeable, and it may depend on their mood on the day.  Their biorhythms do not always coincide, with Gemini’s moods dependant on the vicissitudes of Mercury, and the Cancerian’s on the phases of the Moon.  Conversely, they can help balance out each other’s mood.

Cancerian Sun with Cancerian Sun

People of the same sign have the potential to understand each other to a great degree.  This combination is great for home and family life, though emotionally they could create an insular world, and possibly foster any latent tendencies to agoraphobia.  Their emotional biorhythms are likely to run parallel, which may be great at the New Moon, but highly tense and emotional at the Full Moon.

Cancerian Sun with Leo Sun

People of neighbouring signs often have planets in each other’s sign.  Therefore their planets may mingle, which will give them something in common.  It can be a good combination for parenting, with the Cancerians #lovin’familylife and Leos adopting a paternalistic role.

Cancerian Sun with Virgo Sun

This is another harmonious pairing.  It can also assist domestic bliss.  The Cancer/Virgo emphasis may be on getting the home shipshape.  Virgo will get everything just so, and Cancer will make the place feel like home.  They may also have a shared interest in nutrition, the Cancerian liking to nurture in general, and the Virgoan having an interest in healthy eating.  A healthy eating catering business could be a going concern.

Cancerian Sun with Libra Sun

This is not such an easy pairing, the two signs being squared.  However, if they are both interested in home-making, they can pull together, with Libra having a say in interior design, furnishing and fabric.  Another possible area of bonding is music: Cancerians are skilled in musical rhythm, such as the drum section of a band, and Libran talents include singing and playing other musical instruments.  There is also a basic gentleness about both signs, which could prove a harmonious backdrop to a life together.

Cancerian Sun with Scorpio Sun****

This pairing works very well, the emotions of the two flowing in synch like the currents of an underground river.  There may be times they do not need to speak, as they can feel each other’s emotions and heartbeats.  They can look after each other well, and can be soulmates.

Cancerian Sun with Sagittarius Sun

This is not a natural pairing, unless one of them has the Ascendant in the other’s sign.  Cancerians like to be rooted, and Sagittarius is happy to be rootless.  So living arrangements may be difficult.

Cancerian Sun with Capricorn Sun

These two make an excellent foundation for home and family, complementing each other’s make up and skills.  They are able to make satisfying arrangements when it comes to the work/life balance, and are both natural parents.  There may be some tension, due to their opposite polarity.

Cancerian Sun with Aquarius Sun

Like Cancer/Saggy, this is not a natural pairing, and they may struggle to find common ground.  The Cancerians natural habitat is emotion and instinct (Water) and the Aquarian lives on a plane of intellect (Air) and intuition (Uranus).  As with Cancer/Saggy too, if one of them has the Ascendant in the other’s Sun sign, that can give the relationship some common ground.  Living designs could also be difficult to reconcile, in that Cancerians like to collect or hoard, and Aquarians like to streamline.

Cancerian Sun with Pisces Sun****

Here is another pairing which can be blissful, with plenty of shared emotion and sensitivity.  Life for these two together can be a sentimental journey.  They can live in a world of their own though, and need to ensure they are part of a wider group for grounding.

A good start to the week is enabled by the Sun sextile Jupiter early this morning.  This should put a spring in your step, even if the weather still hasn’t cottoned on to the fact that it is summer in the U.K.  Will they need the roof on Centre Court this afternoon for the men’s final at Wimbledon?  And if so, will that favour Andy Murray?  Let’s hope these questions distract you from Brexit and whether or not Angela Eagle will stand against Jeremy Corbyn today for the Labour leadership.  And these are just our U.K. dilemmas…substitute your own if you are reading abroad.  A lot of our aspects this week take place very early in the day, so adjust that to the night before for the U.S. and mid afternoon for Australia.

It’s a good day for projecting positive affirmations and visualizations for the coming week, and tomorrow there is a positive trine between Mercury and Mars, which is an influence under which you can get things done and get things moving.  If you are born under Gemini, Virgo or Aries particularly, you will be able to co-ordinate mind and body successfully in your efforts, whether it is for office reorganization or mowing the lawn.  But at the same time, Mercury will be square Uranus, so there could be some mental tension as well, or a spanner in the works (in this case a paper jam in the printer, or a spanner in the lawn mower).  This aspect will especially affect Geminis, Virgos and Aquarians.  So some hitch may turn up just when you feel you are getting somewhere.  However, things may right themselves spectacularly when Mercury then trines Chiron, again affecting Geminis and Virgos.  You could end the day feeling all’s right with the world after all, and sensing possibilities for healing.

On Tuesday (12th) Venus enters Leo, so dry your tears from Venus in Cancer, and put your glad rags on and go out and have a good time.  With Sun still sextile Jupiter, there could be a real holiday atmosphere.  If it is still raining, don’t let it interfere with your planned leisure activities or outings.  If you are stuck in the office, get creative (paint a beach scene mural on the wall).

Mercury joins Venus in Leo on Thursday (14th) reinforcing any intentions of having a good time, and focussing on enjoying the summer.  The Hedonist Archetype can come out to play.  It’s a good time for interacting with children, or grandchildren, and exploring life through their eyes.

Saturday (16th) has a different time scale (not the early morning starts we had for the aspects the rest of the week) and a contrast of effects.  At lunchtime in the U.K. Uranus squares the Sun, and disruption or erratic behaviour may be the dominant feature of your activities.  The lawn mower may get stuck again, and the problem may be more than just a spanner.  So there’s some problem-solving to do, which may involve quick-thinking, or future vision.

In the evening, Mercury conjuncts Venus, so that adds a blessing to any socializing you’re engaged in.  Discussions will be creative and interesting, forming bridges between minds and hearts.  This should seal the week with an air of contentment.

The week in bullet points:

  • Today – look forward with optimism
  • Tomorrow – mixed fortunes, mainly positive
  • Tuesday – play time
  • Thursday – more play time
  • Saturday – disrupted brunch, evening harmony
