Cancer and Aquarius

Cancer and Aquarius can be a challenging relationship to make work. The low scores represent the initial compatibility of this match. However, you are both strong willed enough to make this work, and if you succeed the scores would be much higher.

If you can both adapt to the others style this is a relationship which will improve steadily over time, and eventually rival any other match. The low scores represent a high initial challenge, and not a long term pessimistic view.

These scores show the averages for data collected from our clients over the past 20 years. It's important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It's also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which statistically are likely to have low compatibility.

Cancer and Aquarius compatibility

This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Cancer man or Cancer woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Aquarius man or Aquarius woman.

From the Cancer viewpoint

You want an emotional and affectionate partner, while often Aquarius is far more interested in intellectual debates and mental stimulation in a relationship.

You're likely to feel very neglected emotionally and romantically at times in this relationship, unless your Aquarian is very attentive and affectionate (which is rare unless they make an effort to do so).

You're intuitive, while this partner is highly objective, which naturally includes being emotionally removed from a subject. You want security in a relationship, whereas your Aquarian values freedom and flexibility.

While you get emotionally attached to friends, family and possessions this is a partner who is far more independent, and often prefers to debate with strangers over nurturing loved ones. It's likely you will find this partner cold or aloof at times, while they find you moody and emotionally needy.

Overall your Aquarius is likely to be more stubborn than you are, and 'changing them' is highly unlikely. From your side this relationship is likely to feel like it's sometimes all give and no take.

These fundamental differences can make the relationship unsatisfying for both of you unless you each take the time to understand your partner and respect their needs and viewpoints. Doing so will often expose you to new experiences you'll enjoy, so it's not nearly as self sacrificing as it might sound.

Cancer Aquarius sex

This is a forward and exciting partner, and sex is likely to be very good, however you will soon realize that fun and exciting doesn't include the emotional depth which you need from a partner, so again without compromises you may feel something is missing.

It's important to note however that we're looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.

To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.

This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the compatibility readings page.

From the Aquarius viewpoint

Aquarius and Cancer Compatibility

You enjoy a fairly high level of freedom and flexibility in a relationship, whereas this partner is very big on security and constant affection to keep bonds strong. There's a good chance you may occasionally feel trapped or smothered, while they start to feel insecure.

You want an intellectual equal to debate and unravel the mysteries of the world with, while this partner is more interested in emotional empathy and romantic evenings at home.

Your Cancer is a partner who needs a lot of quality attention, which is something that many Aquarians struggle to provide in the long term. As a rule you don't do well with emotionally needy partners, and this is a match which is much easier if you're extra sensitive and attentive (for example if you have a water sign moon it will make things much easier).

Your Cancer is a partner who likes to stay home, and is often very close to family, often preferring to spend time with them (sometimes even on a daily basis) over over other activities - this may seem fairly alien to you.

Aquarius Cancer sex

Likely to be very good initially, however in the long term it's less likely to remain satisfying unless you compromise on styles.

This is a partner who wants a little more love and affection, and a little less fun and excitement than you do. A lack of emotional connection in the bedroom is likely to make your Cancer more emotional and needy, creating a vicious circle if you start to pull away.

This can be a wonderful relationship, however the reality is that it's unlikely to just fall into place. You'll each need to understand and respect the other persons needs and viewpoint, and be willing to meet in the middle on key issues.

Cancer and Aquarius Compatibility Summary

So is this article conclusive? No! This article is based only on sun sign interaction. In order to provide a lot of people with information it's a convenient and fast way to generalize, but it's far from conclusive at this broad level. To get a complete picture we need to take all the other planets and their interactions into account for each of you, with a real astrology reading...
