Aries and Cancer Compatibility

The bonding of an Aries and a Cancer can be difficult and pretty offbeat. They both have different sense of expression, where Aries are high and spontaneous, Cancers are shy and slow. Though these two together can be very complementing but they take time to adjust to such situation.

Aries have a youthful aura and their confident personality makes them outshine most of the people around them but at the same time their impatient nature and carefree attitude can cause hitches. They look for endeavors that enhance their egos. Aries are often viewed as one who is impulsive and thoughtless, while the whole time they are running around carelessly trying to gain acceptance. They rush out to meet obstacles headlong and headfirst, even when they have to go out of their way to find them. They want everyone to like them, which they usually earn from their attractive personality. They are born to win and they want everything to be more than perfect for them. The typical Aries would never hurt anyone on purpose.

Cancers are very sensitive and cautiously intelligent people who appreciate their superiority with humbleness and use it properly. They are one of a kind determined individual who are steadily strong and achieves success in all conditions. Cancers are always very protective and warm towards every person they love including their family and friends. They often use humor as a form of trickery to distract a person from noticing their technique. Their strategy to win over obstacles is not head on but rather sideways. When they are hurt, they simply disappear from the scene and pout. They should not be considered to be totally impassive, easily molded or incapable of resistance. Even they can be sometimes very stubborn and hard headed for the things they want their way to achieve.

A union between an Aries and a Cancer are more likely to consist of co-workers or relatives. Their relationship is typical business orientated. If a romance is created between the two it usually has began at the work environment or at some common gatherings. A conversation between the two is mainly about family and work. An Aries likes and needs to win. A Cancer has nothing against winning or losing, but also likes leading and having what they want at any cost. The only solution is that they can walk side-by-side, with no one ahead and no one behind. Cancers tends to compromise with less pain than Aries, so it is usually the Cancer who must initiate the offer of truce between two. It is not unusual for an Aries to get an emotional response out of a Cancer by saying the wrong things at the wrong time.

One of the problems between Aries and Cancer is sensitivity to hurt. Aries people have little or no awareness of this particular weakness in themselves. This is not consistent with the image the Aries put forth. Therefore, when Aries is hurt, the reaction is to either immediately deny it or to become defensively angry. Cancers are however sure to display their typical reactions. Although they may learn to tolerate each other, help each other grow, evolve and learn, the differences between them are distinctly visible. Aries and Cancer have different motivations, different approaches to life and different goals. If each gives something of his or her basic good nature to the other, their lives can be greatly enriched. If they are willing to take the time to translate the message of each other’s hearts, who knows how what mountains they can climb.

Relationships play very important roles in lives of both Aries and Cancer as they both love their dear ones passionately; only their way of expressing is different.  As siblings and relatives they form a very loving and easy bond with minor differences that hardly affect anyone of them. As friends and colleagues, they share a very cool relationship, which can be termed as ‘cool buddies’ as both are easy on each other and ready to help. But there may be competition sometimes when Aries want to be at the top and the same thing is the dream of Cancer except that they live in harmony with each other. Commercial project can create magic for them if only they are ready to concentrate on one particular thing and finances are governed by Cancer. Love relationship can create some serious differences as Cancers are shy and slow in relationship while Aries are aggressive and impulsive. As parents they both play perfect as they both remain slow to the heart of their little ones and are ready to provide them with all they want.

When Aries and Cancer are together there can be many differences that are to be taken in consideration. The basic difference comes in their thoughtfulness towards anything and everything in life. Where Cancers are most compassionate of all the beings, Aries can be aggressive and less considerate. Their approach towards finances also come with great clashes as Cancer consider money to be holy stuff, earned and saved forever, Aries find it a basic need and spend it lavishly. As such Aries find Cancers miser and not only that Aries also find them slow and inexpressive. There is always certain amount of possibility to have a clash on almost any subject, due to their different approaches. But if they consider each other’s differences well and give some time to each one with a feeling of adjustment at both the ends, they can actually enjoy a relationship that is fulfilling both in fields of passion and security topped with love and enthusiasm at all times.

That was very harsh. I can understand that the assumption that an Aries and Cancer wouldn’t work by basing it just on sun signs but come on! I’m an Aries sun, Venus and mars with a cancer ascendant. He is a cancer sun and mercury with Leo Venus and Pisces moon. Hi mars is in Aries and we get along great!

I am an Aries man – have had relationships with 2 Cancer women and loved their energy, spirit and sensuality. Eventually in both relationships the unwillingness of Cancer women to be forthright about communicating their feelings becomes a huge energy drain and makes the relationship more trouble than it’s worth.

im a cancer girl i’m almost 20 years old and this aries guy had been chasing me since high school, but i never gave him the time of day, i never looked his way, never had any interest in him whatsoever and the reason is because i thought he was like other guys going after just one thing. but recently i’ve been hanging out with him and he started off texting me everyday and then the texts slowly stopped and it seems like he’ll text unless he needs something (and when i say needs i mean when he wants sex) but i don’t think he’s a user. i think he’s a very nice person, very independent, responsible and caring, but sometimes i think im a bother to him it seems as if whenever i text him he doesn’t feel like talking to me or he busy he seems so uninterested. the only thing i can think of is to just try to keep my mind off of him and don’t jump to conclusions. i think i have fallen in love with him, but i don’t want to tell him because i’m scared of expressing my feelings to him, what should i do? i want to wait until he asks me to hang out with him again to let him know how i feel.i think i should just distance myself from him for a little while, and plus i think i’m pregnant by him once i find out i’m going to have to tell him. what should i do? is it normal for aries guys to be aggressive when i first started hanging out with him he tryed to come onto me but i refused him because we just started hanging out but i eventually gave in. i’ll do anything to keep him and to be with him deep down i know he likes me he told me so, he told me that i was the only good thing in his life i looooove him soooo much and i’ll do anything to keep him i’m so tired of unsuccessful relationships and i pray to god we can make it work. i never thought i would fall in love with him and i don’t want to give up on him.

He seems uninterested because you managed to refuse, avoid, and manipulate the relationship in the very beginning. We reap what we sow.

Let go of any resistance and fear. Feel free to express your feelings/needs in a non-demanding/non-controlling way. He should feel the warmth of your Love.

Love cultivates in presence of truth, warmth, diligence, honesty. Its your turn to win his heart now.

ok this aries guy i have been seeing for a couple months isn’t being straight forward and honest with me.(i thought aries men were supposed to be straightforward, honest and “tell it like it is” kind of people) but anyway i asked him why was he so interested in me, and what his intentions were and he never answered my question. he’s very energetic, confident and nice but i think when it comes to me trying to have a serious conversation about how he feels it seems he doesnt want to discuss his feelings towards me, and i also think he’s a little shy. i think he’s probably afraid what he might say would make me mad and not like him anymore so maybe thats why he’s not being straightforward or its probably just not comfortable with sharing his feelings it seems like he does like me an sometimes it seems like he doesn’t that’s why i want to know how he feels about me and if he really likes me. i don’t know what to do because he isn’t telling me anything. but when i get mad at him he’ll ask me “are you mad at me?” or “are you still going to be with me” i really really really like him but i just don’t know how he feels.

There should be no fears and shyness in any Love relationships. Anyway you have two choices here:
a) You can indirectly hint him that you prefer people who are direct, honest, truthful and expressive with their feelings. And a healthy relationship is only possible when there is no shyness and control over the outcome.
b) You can express your feelings to him (that you have or don’t have romantic feelings for him) and see how if he opens up or not.

If he doesn’t expresses or doesn’t have any real feelings then you’ll soon know that its best to leave him and move on. All the best :)

Because Love makes it all possible :)

Love is the context out of which every relationship arises. Love is always there, we just have to get over the layers of illusion and confusions.

@love2011 The secret fear of a typical Aries is that he or she won’t be liked or valued, even though a winner.And past life of aries really matters in their day to day behaviour.If they are not straightforward then their is something to do with their past experiences.

I was waiting for him for last 6 months hpoing he will come back to me ,but he is dating another girl, though he seems still attracted to me. But I want him back fully. How can I get him back.

Aries are literally too good for cancers.
They are a waste of horoscopes skin, bone, and flesh.
I invested4 1/2 of my years with one and if I could go back and do it again I wouldn’t I would abort mission as soon as possible.
I am a cancer July 6th, She was an Aries 17, I’m hurt betrayed and literally shocked. But I should’ve saw it coming.
I will NEVER DATE ANOTHER Aries.
Not my Destiny.
