Summary of Cancer compatibility

The most compatible signs with Cancer are generally considered to be Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio and Pisces. The least compatible signs with Cancer are generally considered to be Aries and Libra.

Comparing sun signs can give a good general idea of compatibility. However, this is just a quick and easy way to compare, and it's going to have lots of exceptions on this broad level.

That's because people are more than just their sun sign. There are other planets which also affect someone's personality. This creates billions of permutations making each Cancer slightly different. 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 positions from their date of birth and then compare them to your own. This unlocks the real power of astrology and gives much more useful and specific information, such as 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 astrology compatibility readings page.

Cancer compatibility forums

Here you can share experiences and opinions on dating, marriage and affairs, whether you're a Cancer or have experience with one.

You'll find that some of these forums are generally positive in tone, and some are generally negative. That doesn't guarantee that will be your experience, however you are very likely to recognize some common patterns which can be fascinating.

Some relationship combinations are much more common than others. Some sun signs are also much more chatty than others. Some are more likely to compliment (or complain!) about a partner. Each forum therefore tends to have a fairly consistent trend to the comments.

Please keep in mind though that people are much more than just their sun sign. Beyond a point Cancer compatibility varies due to the individuals other planet positions when they were born. You need a real astrology reading to understand a real relationship.
