It will be an intense relationship, both in and out of the bedroom. This couple are very sexually compatible, and can create a very steamy romance, although the Cancer woman would prefer a little more of the traditional romance and a little less of the full on passion.

His co-operation, or not, depends entirely upon his mood, and he can sometimes be very wilful and almost childish in his behavior. For his part, the Scorpio man will not appreciate the tight reign the Cancer woman tries to put on him.

Scorpio man Cancer woman compatibility is therefore not as straightforward as you might imagine, but it can work on a deeply emotional level if the Scorpio man learns to tone down his moods and if the Cancer woman learns to draw the line a little more firmly.
