Cancer and Scorpio have a reputation for being the most compatible signs in the zodiac, but many people don't know why. In this article, we will take a look at what makes these two signs click. Then, we will explore how their differences complement each other and make them one of the strongest pairings in astrology.
A look at the match between Scorpio and Cancer
Scorpio and Cancer are a well-known match that tends to be easy and natural for both parties...at least in the beginning. Scorpios are natural psychologists, so they're great at understanding people's motivations and feelings. On the other hand, Cancers can have an overbearing quality about them where it feels as if they always need someone to care for them. So when these two meet, it often seems like a perfect match at first because of their shared desire to take care of others. But what happens when one or both partners want more from the relationship?
The problem with this relationship is that while Cancer wants more emotional intimacy, Scorpio has trouble opening up emotionally because they're so guarded against past hurts and disappointments. As a result, it's not uncommon for one partner to feel neglected or unimportant - which can lead to resentment or, even worse - cheating!
These differences can lead to arguments, which can cause resentment on either side of the equation - especially when one person starts feeling like they're doing all of the heavy liftings in terms of taking care of each other emotionally or physically (or both).
This is one of those relationships that start out really easy and natural but then become more complex as time goes on. It's important not to take these differences personally - it just means you'll need to work harder at understanding each other better! The key is communication - make sure you talk through your feelings with your partner, so you don't end up feeling misunderstood or unheard.
Key Considerations for Scorpio and Cancer
Cancer and Scorpio are represented by the natural element of water. Cancer is a cardinal sign meaning it has the power to initiate and adapt. Scorpio is a fixed sign, meaning it doesn't like change and is accustomed to ritual. Cancer is energetic, enthusiastic, and compassionate. There are two key things to consider when it comes to Cancer and Scorpio: Communication and Trust.
Communication and trust are the key ingredients to a long-term, healthy relationship with these two water signs.
Communication Between Cancer and Scorpio
Cancer and Scorpio meet on a psychic level. As time goes on, they grow to trust each other and communicate without words through deep empathy. When they master the art of communicating with each other, the pair excels in creativity and imagination. They quickly develop a deep connection when they are together, even if they're not physically present with each other.
Cancer and Scorpio are capable of understanding the other's needs. They make it a point not to impose their will on each other, but instead, they take turns about who takes charge or makes all decisions when required. Forcing an idea onto another person is seen as being manipulative in the eyes of both Scorpio and Cancer.
It might not be visible at first in Cancer partner; the depth they both possess makes it easier for them to open up to each other.
Cancer has a tendency to run from negative experiences, and Scorpio may have difficulty being open with someone else because of past abuse or trauma. However, Cancer and Scorpio signs can live together peacefully with such deep understanding that any failures are met with compassion natural to the other.
Scorpios rarely feel comfortable enough to express feelings that have been hidden for a long time. When Scorpios don't feel ready to share their emotional side, and others keep pushing, they start to come off as cold. Cancer easily breaks down walls with Scorpio because emotional intimacy is key to experiencing the full sweetness of this Cancer's passionate touch.
The best relationships are ones that start off slow and grow more intimate as time goes on. Scorpios may have some wild kinks, but once you've reached a certain point in your relationship, sexual experimentation will soon follow.
The strengths and weaknesses of Scorpio and Cancer
Cancer is drawn to Scorpio magnetically. When it comes to love, Cancer and Scorpio match in two ways: emotionally and intuitively. Because they are water signs, both can 'dive deep" into one another's hearts. The two signs live in blissful harmony, but friction is usually the bi-product of their strong feelings. Cancer is a born caretaker and sacrifices self-care in the process of caring too much to others. Their differences are where their passion comes from.Scorpios and Cancers intuitively understand each other because they share the same emotional intensity; however, any disagreements between the two are more likely to become arguments..
Cancers are intensely focused on family and home - Cancer's stability or potential stability in domestic matters balances Scorpio's focus on their dreams. Cancer is the mother figure who loves unconditionally and will do anything to make their loved ones happy. However, this can sometimes overshadow their needs. Luckily Scorpio is attentive towards those who have stolen their heart. The Scorpio's ability to recognize the needs expressed in Cancer's repressed feelings aids Cancer in identifying what serves them, propelling them to free up energy by letting go of what no longer is helpful.
On the other hand, Scorpio struggles with letting go of painful experiences that make them stronger. Holding on to pain may help caution you against it in the future, but over time it accumulates and creates a deep well of resentment that can crush any love present.
Cancer's need to be loved makes them overbearing in many cases (just kidding), but Scorpio tolerates this as it meshes so well with their own need to be loved. Scorpio, in turn, loves Cancer's innate ability to feel and express love with no hesitation or judgment even when it is not returned by the other person.
Sexual Energy Between Cancers and Scorpios
Scorpio and Cancer put a big emphasis on both emotional bonding and the bedroom. Both signs sexually read and respond to each other in an almost supernatural way. Cancers are well equipped to handle Scorpio's sexual energy because they're not afraid to explore the slightly naughty side of love. They know that nothing is off-limits in a relationship, and they'll let themselves be just as bad or good at it as their partner wants them to be.
Water dominant people are emotional creatures. They feel deeply and love unconditionally, but often not entirely until the sex has been initiated.
"When Cancer and Scorpio people get together, their emotional intensity has the opportunity to blossom."
Cancer and Scorpio have a strong sexual attraction to each other. They are gentle when in intimate moments and provide a sense of safety for one another. However, when they are together, the temperature in the room tends to rise. Both see life as a passionate and deeply emotionally intense exercise of human connection.
Scorpios and Cancers are two signs that seem like they would be perfect for each other. However, this is not always the case. When trust is lost in a relationship, the ease of communication can weaken, and there is often a lack of desire to share anything. In addition, communication problems could arise if one partner has difficulty articulating what feels wrong or cannot verbalize their thoughts during a disagreement with the other.
