This series on AstroCompatibility will cover all of the potential matchups in the Zodiac. We will continue this series thinking about and commenting on Aries and Cancer.
Aries and Cancer. Aries is intensely “Me First” and Cancer is Intensely “Family First”. But They are both very Intense.
Aries and Cancer. Cancer’s romantic aspect is based in domesticity and Aries is not necessarily thinking about the home when it is checking out availabilities. Aries and Cancer are both “Cardinal”, which means they share an Action Oriented approach to what they do.
However, Aries is Fire and Cancer is Water. So Cancer’s actions, and they are definitely action-based people, are thoughtful and conscious and based in the slow approach rooted in hearth and home. Aries’ Fire and Aries’ Cardinality means Aries is action times TWO. Aries and Cancer together in action.
The Aries in pursuit of the Cancer sets up a “not so fast, guy” picture. It’s not that a Cancer would be shy, but there is too much inner steel to be thought of as “easy”. But the Cancer and the Aries can create a kindled fire. The Cancer not shy, necessarily, but a little more consciously hesitant, might find the more firey and outgoing Aries very appealing. Aries can start the conversation and Cancer can finish with a well-considered Cancerian clever rejoinder. This is a good potential for compatibility. Aries and Cancer could go into business together.
Since Aries and Cancer share “cardinality”, there is a basic match up here. This is especially important with cardinal signs because they “charge first and ask questions later”. The two of them could create a dynamic family together. Positively speaking, these signs could be a public and dynamic pair. Regardless of how the genders work, it seems a pairing that could be serious. Cancer would consider slowly, Aries would act when they agreed, and then Cancer could support. Aries intelligence and brightness would be appreciated by Cancer.
Aries and Cancer would have a very high romance factor, as long as Cancer would not slip into a depressive mood state and Aries would not lose its sharp temper. Offending and being offended could be a romance dampener.
Aries and Cancers have tempers! Aries starts it and Cancer finishes it. Whoa. Watch out. They will definitely have many discussions – long discussions. You see Cancer, regardless of gender will not be intimidated and Aries moves forward with its issues on its lips. This is not a death sentence. It just means they will have to reconcile and work things out. The benefit here is that there will not be too many unspoken, unexpressed problems.
Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: “Can we be bored together over the long term?” Cancer and Aries might not be able to stand boredom, but as they get older, they might need it. Cancer “blues” should be watched for here. Aries may over estimate its rightness and become wearing.
Keep Up The Interest Graph:
Cancer and Aries are a good “keep up the interest” signs, but Aries should stop looking over the fence and flirting at picnics. Cancer is not likely to ruin this relationship, unless they become profoundly hurt or disappointed. Aries may forget how fortunate it is, until something shakes them up.
Seven Year Itchiness:
There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns, as time goes on. Others are not. There are Cardinal signs on both sides here. That means action could be taken by either during the 7 year itch time. Cancer is more likely to think about it and imagine it, much more than Aries. Aries could stumblie into it, not knowing that its subconscious might be overly engaged in the prospect of infidelity.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 80% Positive Long Term – 50% Short Term. This has a better chance the older the relationship gets. Cancer should watch the weight. Aries should care less about losing its youth. The newer this relationship is, the more possibility that it might not work. But once they get going, these two cardinals could keep going on sheer momentum.
