The Cancer man and the Virgo woman are both quiet, dignified people who have high personal values. The Cancer man wants to look after his partner, and the Virgo woman wants to look after, be of service to and carry out her duty towards her partner, so together they can create a mutually loving and supportive relationship. Cancer man Virgo woman compatibility relies on the couple having much in common, but may begin to unravel after a time.
This couple do have a great deal to teach each other, which can benefit both of them. The Cancer man is intuitive, sensitive and emotional – his logical, analytical Virgo woman can show him how to ground and sort through his conflicting emotions in order to find greater peace of mind. Meanwhile, the Virgo woman can be uptight emotionally, and the Cancer man can teach her that it’s OK to just feel how you feel, without having to self-censor all the time. Cancer man Virgo woman compatibility is mutually constructive, but is that enough for a lifetime of love?
This is a water earth partnership, which can result in the best of both worlds, or it can result in mud. The stumbling block for Cancer man Virgo woman compatibility is that both partners worry and fret constantly. The Cancer man is notorious for his worries. The Virgo woman is full of nervous energy and constantly has a great deal on her mind, but at least she is an earth sign and is capable, when she feels like it, of dealing with her worries positively and constructively. It’s easy for her to get swept up in her Cancer man’s depression, though, and then even the highly practical Virgo woman will struggle to chart a course out of it.
The Virgo woman’s natural instinct in a partnership is to try to help her partner. However, she has a uniquely Virgo way of doing this, through criticism. She means it positively and lovingly, and most of what she offers is indeed sound advice – for a sensitive Cancer man, however, it can all be a bit too much. He will start to wonder why she’s with him in the first place if she just wants to change him. He will resent the constant criticism, so his moods will become worse. That will distract and distress his Virgo woman, who will offer more advice…and so the cycle worsens. Cancer man Virgo woman compatibility depends on the Virgo woman learning to sense when her advice is welcome and when it is not. She is a mutable sign, and an intelligent one too, so she may well be able to do this, but it will take her a while to learn.
Decision making within this partnership will be interesting to say the least. The Cancer man makes decisions instinctively and intuitively; the Virgo woman will make copious lists of every possible outcome and change her mind seven times before eventually reaching a conclusion based on her analysis. In some ways, this is a good thing, because when it comes to important matters like finance or parenting, this couple have the input of both the head and the heart. In theory. In practice, it’s just another reason for the couple to become frustrated with each other; an added complication that Cancer man Virgo woman compatibility just does not need.
In good times, however, this can be a workable and even delightful relationship. This couple are quirky and self-sufficient, not needing a huge social circle around them. They support each other, they love each other and they understand each other up to a point. Whether it can survive into the long term depends on how much the couple love each other (obviously) and on whether, for the Virgo woman, Cancer man Virgo woman compatibility is worth staying quiet.
