Are you in love with a Cancer and wanting to increase your compatibility? Cancer is a gentle, loving and nurturing sign, and one of the zodiac’s romantics. Although the Sun sign is only one part of a proper astrological horoscope, Cancer compatibility with any other sign will improve a great deal if you understand how your Cancer lover thinks and feels. Try these simple ways to their heart.
1 – Let Cancer Take Care of You
Above anything else, and more than any other sign in the zodiac, Cancer wants to look after you. Taking care of loved ones makes him or her happier than you can possibly imagine, and it’s one of their most basic drives in life. Even if you’re a highly independent type, let your Cancer lover pamper you – this will do wonders for your compatibility. Cancer’s way of making you feel loved is to try to mother you, so let yourself feel loved!
2 – Don’t Skimp on the Romance
When it comes to love compatibility, Cancer is a sucker for good old fashioned romance. We’re talking flowers, chocolates, champagne, rose petals on the bed, candlelit baths – the whole works. Cancer is one of the signs very much in love with the idea of love, so it shouldn’t be too hard to keep the romance alive throughout your relationship, and your Cancer partner will love you all the more for your efforts to do so.
3 – Understand Cancer’s Fears
If there’s one thing you’ve probably noticed about your Cancer partner, it’s their tendency to worry. A lot. About everything. Even if you consider his or her fears unreasonable, childish or plain daft, humour them for the sake of your compatibility. Cancer is not unintelligent, so don’t patronise your partner over these worries, or try to make light of them. Everyday concerns loom large in his or her life and it’s your job, as a loving partner, to share those concerns and to gently reassure him or her without making a big deal of it.
4 – Don’t Blow Hot and Cold
If you’re committed to your Cancer, say so, and mean it. If you’re not, be open and honest about that too. One thing guaranteed to send Cancer right back into his or her shell is a fickle attitude towards the relationship. Honesty is important for any kind of compatibility; Cancer needs honesty too, even if what you have to say is not what he or she wants to hear. If you’re enthusiastic one day and distant the next, you’ve only got yourself to blame when your Cancer partners finds you too much trouble to figure out – and moves on.
5 – Embrace your Extended Family
Whether or not you’re married, once you’re in a stable relationship with a Cancer lover, he or she will consider your families merged. You can safely expect your lover to do everything in their power to get along with your family, so it’s only right that you return the compliment and work very hard to please your in-laws. While we’re on the subject of family, it’s also vital that you support Cancer’s wish to have children (lots of children, no doubt). If you’re not on the same wavelength in that department, expect problems in compatibility; Cancer’s world view has family life in the absolute centre.
Don’t forget that an Astromatcha astrology compatibility report can offer you much more in depth information about your love match than a simple horoscope. Cancer compatibility is very sensitive, loving and nurturing when you get it right, but, the crab has some very sharp pincers if you break his or her heart!
