Cancer and Capricorn Compatibility

Opposites attract each other and so does Cancer and Capricorn. They find each other quite fascinating and represent the qualities that help to complement one another. Both of them are dependable and ready to commit to any relationship they make. But since the sense of expression is different, there can be a few differences in the beginning.

Cancer’s sensitive nature strikes the most when they get in contact with anyone. They possess oodles of charisma through which they can easily impress people but still they are humble enough to extend their support to the people in distress. Cancers are modest, superbly imaginative and definitely very emotional. Patience is their dearest virtue and flexibility is their biggest weapon to win in all circumstances. They have the ability to inspire a lot of people. But this can become a possibility when they come out of their shell and win the battle with their inner conflict. If they can erase their inhibitions and believe in their abilities, they can perform very well as leaders in fact they are the ones to get success in everything they go for.

Capricorns represent stability, permanence and determination. They are generally conformist thinkers who are highly ambitious and self-disciplined. Some Capricorns are decidedly arrogant about fame and prestige which is hard to discover behind their shy smile and gentle manners. They appear to want to be alone but long for admiration and acceptance from people just like everyone else. Capricorns like to seek pleasures from the uncomplicated things and risk free movements in life. Some of them can be quite concerned about their status symbol and they might wear the best designer labels and drive the snazziest cars. But at heart they are always simple and strongly dedicated to their family and dear ones with very kind attitude. They also fall short in the field of expressing their love and affection which makes them seem to be cold.

Cancer have this strange connection with the past and like to take a walk down the memory lane quite often. Capricorns value learning which is based on the past experience, and hence they have a few things in common with Cancer. They both have similar feelings towards their families too as both are very protective and kind to their dear ones. The Capricorns are most likely to get engaged in a conventional profession. The Cancer try to find the element of practicality in every aspect of their lives. Both of them have a penchant for the artistic things in life. There are certain qualities between the Cancer and Capricorns which make them very similar but there are also qualities that make them as different as chalk and cheese. The Cancer do not want to exhibit their leadership in an extravagant way and hence it takes a long time for the Capricorns to realize about their need to dominate.

The Cancer should keep in mind the fact that once the Capricorns make up their mind, then it is very difficult to budge them. At the same time Capricorns should know that Cancer are not good at making the first move. Because they feel that they are not good enough for the task or they might get rejected. So just in order to save them from getting humiliated, Cancer then try to hide in their shell. The Capricorns are always confident about the decisions made by them. But the Cancer do a lot of analysis before making any decision because they want to be completely sure of the fact that their decisions are right. The Cancer do not have the strength to bear the burnt of a wrong decision because neither can they stand rejection nor criticism. Cancer want security in their lives and Capricorns are known for their ambitious nature and this aspect would act like glue in their bond.

Relations and bonds come naturally to both Cancer and Capricorns and hence they always enjoy every bond they tie with each other. If they are friends, siblings, colleagues or relatives, they also keep the decorum of their relation and always give their best to each other with lots of love and co-operation. These two make quite successful business partners with lots to earn and make together and cherish which includes money, status and fame. Cancer and Capricorns also perform well in love relationships if just the Capricorns try to be a little more sensitive towards Cancer. They both also enjoy parenthood and childhood beautifully. As parents they are always dedicated and protective and as children they both are obedient and respectful towards their elders.

With all the similarities and complementing factors, come the differences and problems that create tiffs between Cancer and Capricorns. Cancer are too sensitive while Capricorns are practical. Also Cancer are expressive while Capricorns find it difficult to give words to their feelings. This attitude makes the Cancer silent and unresponsive. Another thing is that it is always difficult to sustain a relationship which has more than one leader. In these kinds of circumstances the Cancer let go of the opportunity to lead the Capricorns. But at time they may compete with each other. It is up to the Cancer and Capricorns to decide as to who takes the reigns of the relationship. Their connection is quite unique because they possess qualities that the other has always wanted to have, and hence their camaraderie is palpable. When both of them are prepared to share their experience and learn from them, then it can benefit their relationship.

I am a Cancer male currently in a relationship with a Capi woman and i must agree with most of the things I’ve read about us Cancer Men. Some call us crazy and maybe we are (just a lil bit). We are naturally contradicting so that’s why we may seem confused or don’t know exactly what we want. Some things i have learned from my Capi is to NEVER be afraid to express my TRUE feelings to her because she gives me the same in return. Honesty and communication is the key to make this unlikely match a success. Cancer Men have a tendency to “Lead women on” and not be honest about our true intentions, and as a result of dat comes drama and unnecessary arguments. Take time to understand us Cancerians, do your homework on our compatibility. We understand you and all we ask is u take time to understand us as well. As time goes by it’ll be all good….jus see what happens! :)

Im currently seeing a Cap man I am a cancer woman.  The connection was automatic. I  respect him and knew i loved him at first sight.  He works really hard and is very succesful. he can be strong and brutal when it comes to business. He is the dominate one in our relationship and this makes me more attractive to him. I know he miss understands my feelings for him, because I am shy,, but Baby if you get the chance to read this ,, I just want you to know I love you.

MY mom is a cancer and I love my mom from the bottom of my heart and I’m a Capricorn Female
I just wish my mom wasn’t so dang sensitive all the time and stop wearing heart on her sleeve
But really though some things us Capricorns just can’t say to a Cancer it do hurt their feelings trust me I would know cause I know I say things that really hurt my mom’s feelings and say sorry and give her hugs and kisses all the time like EVERY SINGLE DAY. A lot of people wish they had that kind of relationship with their moms, you know, go shoppin together WITHOUT ANY ARGUMENTS and have fun and laugh all the time.
I can Get really greedy with my mom, Look I already gotta share my mom with my Sister who is a gemini, my little brother who is a Capricorn like me and my step dad who is a Scorpio okay I really don’t like it when my mother show mother affection towards other people i know that’s just her and she care about people but i was she show me some mother love sometimes too it’s not fair and I really don’t like to share my mother with EVERYBODY and assume they know my mother better then I do now that when I get really pissed off and wanna kick some asss cause they wasn’t there when we had hard times in life and been poor and save her from my real dad beating on her and I always gave her my money from work when she really needs or just give it to my mom just to give her money so she can go shopping and enjoy herself and time to herself cause that’s my mom she been there for my sister, brother and I through thick and thin and made sure she can stretch that penny I she Could to make sure we had a better life and always feed us instead of herself…
so yeah when people like that tell me they know my mother better then i do when for one they’d just meet her and only known her for about what few months or weeks and think they know her better then me…..yes I get pissed off and wanna fight them and by the by not EVER lost a fight and beat there ass cause they was not there to support her and hear her cries like i did when i was little and while i was growing up and to comfort her, how DARE they assume they know my mom better than me that really get my clock to start clickin really loud and you bettter run..
 
Like i said I don’t like sharing my mother with EVERYBODY cause she have no idea that the people she hang with that ” ASSUME THEY KNOW HER BETTER THAN I DO” try to start shit with me and a fight and say cleek shit out the mouth….
What I’m gettin at with this you Cancers is becarful who you be friends with cause they will try your Capricorn and say cleek shit out the mouth and your friends will be in the hospital by a Capricorn… and when your Capricorn is trying to tell you something about the people you hang out with please do listen to us for we have no reason to lie EVER…..
When I say you CANCERS wear your heart on your sleeves I do mean YOU WEAR YOUR HEARTS ON YOUR SLEEVES and can’t see what the heellllll is going on around you, for GOD SAKES open your eyes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I married a cancer man and I am now separating. It’s a great relationship but long term wise it’s a failure waiting to happen. Don’t get me wrong I still love and care about the man, it’s just the whole who’s possessive. We have two children together, married for 3 years and dated for 5 years. He is now with his current gf and go back and forth, breaking up and struggling, the drama goes on an on. Am very expressive and this for some reason got on cancer mans nerves. I demanded to know what wa going on thru his mind. All I can say is if a Capricorn woman and cancer man marry and love together for as long as him and I did, it’ll be something you will never forget or get over. You will move on but this man will stay underneath your skin every time your with someone else. An the cancer man will never forget a Capricorn woman bc she’s the only one he ever opened up in love, sex, money. His deepest secreat lay on her eyes and every time he looks at her he wishes she was still his.
