How can a couple live happily together when one of them thrives on security and the other thrives on risk? That’s the problem to solve if Cancer man and Sagittarius woman compatibility is to stand a chance. For this interesting water/fire combination, what works in their favor is their shared good natures.
The Cancer man is seeking a stable home life and a partner for life. The Sagittarius woman isn’t…well, not “yet”, however old she is. She’s seeking fun and love, sure, but she’s not into the whole settling down thing. She’s horrified at the thought of domestic bliss, which on the other hand is exactly what her Cancer guy wants. So what to do? How can Cancer man and Sagittarius woman compatibility figure out a way forwards?
The answer lies perhaps in a bit of a timeshare relationship. Some of the best Cancer man Sagittarius woman relationships are those which travel around a lot – but while they’re in each place, they play happy families for a while. It works especially well for military couples who have no choice but to move around, but this relationship can work in other situations too. The key is that both partners get a little bit of what they want, and each adapts to the other.
There can be a lot of bickering between this couple though, although most of what they disagree about is the small stuff. Does that surprise you? Yep, even though the Cancer man wants to be at home and the Sagittarius woman wants freedom, it’s who takes out the trash which will keep this pair awake at night. The Cancer man sulks when he doesn’t get his own way, which will infuriate the straightforward Sagittarius woman. For her part, she can be very blunt and tactless, and won’t sugar coat her words, which can wound the sensitive Cancer guy. For the Cancer man and Sagittarius woman, compatibility may involve an awful lot of apologies.
Since both are essentially kind and loving people, however, resentment doesn’t simmer for long. They may row, but they’ll make it up quickly. The Sagittarius woman has an innately sunny disposition and an eternal optimism about her which soon brightens up her Cancer man’s horizons. Factor in that this is a water/fire relationship and you can add a good dose of sexual compatibility to the mix too. This can be a very steamy romance, especially if the couple do live at a distance or have to go without seeing each other for a long time. Cancer man Sagittarius woman compatibility is definitely the kind that is made stronger by absence.
When the relationship is going well and this couple are managing to balance the delicate mix of freedom and security, they are the best of friends. The Cancer guy must be careful not to try to smother his Sagittarius woman, though. He only means well, and wants to care for her, but she is a highly independent female and doesn’t like being fussed over. If she interprets his well meaning attentions as an attempt to deny her her freedom, she will quickly lose her temper, mystifying her Cancer guy who was only trying to make her happy.
Usually, however, this relationship seems to work, against the odds. For the Cancer man and Sagittarius woman, compatibility is ever surprising, but perhaps all the stronger for that.
