Cancer and Pisces Compatibility: The Homemaker and the Dreamer

For Cancer and Pisces, compatibility with one another is practically inborn. These two recognise a kindred spirit in each other, and there is likely to be instant attraction. Two of the most sensitive signs in the zodiac together form a beautiful, ethereal relationship in which they will each take great care not to hurt the other.

What marks Cancer and Pisces compatibility out most is a shared emotional base. Both water signs, this couple are used to following their intuition, and it’s this intuition which draws them together. No matter how difficult their circumstances or how unlikely society deems their match, true love will out. For Pisces and Cancer, compatibility is strong enough to see them through financial difficulties, family disapproval, different races, religions, long distance relationships or any number of  other potential obstacles. If they want to be together, they’ll be together.

Being highly sensitive, both partners in this relationship are quite fragile at heart, and easily devastated. Fortunately, this means that they both understand the pain of thoughtless words or deeds, and are certain not to treat anyone else the way they wouldn’t want to be treated. Cancer and Pisces compatibility is a very honest and open love match, with each partner wearing their heart on their sleeve. There’s nothing hidden here, so there are no dark secrets for either partner to stumble upon.

This is likely to be a deeply romantic relationship, with love notes, poems, flowers and the full range of sweet and tender surprises along the way. Of course, for two such emotional people, there will also be some tears during the journey, but it’s a surprisingly serene relationship for two water signs, with none of the darkness or angst that characterises, for instance, a Cancer/Scorpio match. Cancer and Pisces compatibility brings this couple a soft and gentle almost magical aura; it’s as though they have a divine or spiritual connection which nobody else can break. Neither Pisces nor Cancer is usually unfaithful once committed to a relationship, although gentle Pisces can be easily led by a stronger character. Cultivating honesty is the key here – so long as Pisces feels they can trust Cancer, they are unlikely to stray.

There is a slight risk that Pisces will get carried away into a fantasy world here, because Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the planet of illusions. However, although Cancer is also a water sign, the Cancer partner has an inner steel and shrewdness which will help them ground Pisces just long enough to avert a crisis. Remember that Cancer is a cardinal sign, and will take action, whereas Pisces, being a mutable sign, is content to adapt to Cancer’s plans. There’s no competitiveness in Cancer and Pisces compatibility, so this couple do not need to worry about who’s going to be in charge.

Underpinned by compassion, empathy and deep, deep feelings, this relationship is one which can stand the test of time. For Cancer and Pisces compatibility to work at its best, however, both partners must learn to communicate more directly. They both tend to side step issues instead of tackling them head on, which is fine in the short term but cannot be sustained over a life time. As the cardinal sign, it will again be up to Cancer to take control here, and to gently force Pisces to face up to any problems. Otherwise, there is a danger that when life gets tough, both Pisces and Cancer might wallow in depression and worry, perhaps even resorting to negative escapism, drink or drugs.

At its best, this beautiful partnership is sweet, tender, romantic, spiritual and empathetic. Both partners have so much love to give, not only to each other but to the world at large, so don’t be surprised to find this couple working for charity in some way. Pisces and Cancer compatibility is expressed even better when the Dreamer and the Homemaker pool resources to help improve life for someone else.

  5. Me and my husband had a really quick and interesting connection. It was like someone made up a story about us. Connection was instant. And I thought I had to be dreaming. Because it was like I was looking at my own personality . I am a Cancer and he is a Pisces. I waited for the catch because it didn’t seem genuine at first. But now I adore him for being in my life. We got married 3 mos into our relationship and we have been together now for 7 years. Up and downs are very minimal and it don’t last long like a lot of my other relationships. My first marriage was a Scorpio. Then I dated a Taurus for 4yrs and a Leo for 9mos. And both signs don’t compare to my Pisces!!!! Love you John Dawson…….

  6. I’m a cancer he is a pisces.. 10 months in and it all feels like a dream that I don’t ever want to wake up from!!! I love him so very much and some how I know he love me so much more.

  9. I’m a cancer and at first I did not know what to think we’re so much alike and it made me feel comfterble and protected I’ve never been able to relax around a guy it’s like we don’t need words to know what the others thinking or feeling but on the flip side I don’t like taking control at all I can if I must im a natural leader But it makes me feel unstable I want to know he’ll ketch me if I fall I don’t want all this pressure to land on me all the time …. And as for the side stepping yup I see it were both not direct and we watch our footing carefully as to not hurt the other and in some ways it’s nice but on the other hand it takes patience . It’s a very pure bond that grows stronger with time it’s not love at first its not crazy or fast or even to complicated Pisces are true good guys and they often get snatched up by straight forward women… I’m leaving in a few days and I want to tell him how I feel even tho I’m not sher what this is exactly I know if I don’t he may be taken when I get back. But I guess as long as she makes him happy im happy
