The Pisces man and the Cancer woman create a water/water sign combination which nobody could fault for emotional depth. However, can these two sensitive creatures really create a happily ever after, or is it an illusion?
It’s easy to see what draws the Pisces man and the Cancer woman together. The Pisces man is the most emotional man in the zodiac, and the Cancer woman is one of the most sensitive women around too. This couple understand what it’s like to live through strong emotions, and they understand what it is to be hurt too. They are both likely to be slightly cautious in this relationship to begin with, but deep down they do sense a kindred spirit, and trust between them will quickly grow.
Pisces man Cancer woman compatibility works because both of the partners are seeking some kind of emotional security and stability. However, ironically, it also doesn’t work – for the same reason. The Cancer woman wants a man she can rely upon when times get rough. She will quickly figure out that the Pisces man is just as likely to go to pieces as she is, if not more so. She is a mother hen, and will find that vulnerability endearing – but she already has enough people to care for; does she really need another one? The Pisces man is seeking someone who will empathize with and share his depth of imagination and emotions. The Cancer woman can and will, but she will always inject an element of reality into proceedings which he will find uncomfortable. If it’s escapism the Pisces man is seeking, he’s not going to find it with the shrewd Cancer woman.
You see, she may be a water sign, just like him, but she will do all she can to protect her family, and that means retaining one foot on dry land, just like the crab which symbolizes her. She won’t join the Pisces man on his flights of fancy, and she’ll disapprove of most of them. In this way, Pisces man Cancer woman compatibility is not as assured as you might think.
The two are very sensitive souls, however, and both are very compassionate and loving. When the union is going well, this is a lovely, sweet and tender love affair, with lots and lots of romance, and lot and lots of emotion. It’s passionate and sensual too, and their shared sex life can be a rock which secures Pisces man Cancer woman compatibility even when nothing else does.
In order for Pisces man Cancer woman compatibility to thrive, the cardinal sign Cancer woman is going to have to take charge. She may do this, she may not. Half the time, she wants her man to take charge of her, so this doesn’t come naturally to her really. She will take the lead when she has to, however, and can salvage this relationship single handedly if she really chooses to. Whether she will choose to or not is open to debate, however. The Cancer woman admires the Pisces man’s sensitivity and spirituality, but she is seeking more than that from a mate. For his part, he will be devastated to lose his Cancer woman. From the Pisces man’s point of view, this probably is a close to perfect union – so when it comes to Pisces man Cancer woman compatibility, the ball is usually in Cancer’s court.
