Each combination of sun signs with Cancer has different strong and weak areas, and nearly every combination has its own quirks and unique features. Due to this each combination has its own article here, discussing the strong and weak areas of the relationship. Each relationship is often slightly different from each partners perspective, so our articles also look at each partner's viewpoint separately.


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.

In reality there is no 100% typical Cancer relationship, as every Cancer (and every partner) is slightly different. A persons Moon, Mars, Venus and other planets positions at the time of birth all influence personality to make each person and relationship unique.

Comparing sun signs can often 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.

There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality than their sun sign. 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 etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the astrology compatibility readings page.

Cancer compatibility message boards

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

You'll find that some message boards are generally positive in tone, and some are generally negative. If the board for your current relationship is a giant love-fest, it certainly doesn't guarantee that will be your experience, however you are almost guaranteed to recognize some common patterns which can be fascinating.

Some relationship combinations are much more common than others, and some sun signs are much more chatty than others. Some boards are hence much more active than others.
