Cancer Man and Leo Woman Love Compatibility

Fire and Water make an astonishing amalgam of passion and calmness between a Leo and a Cancer. There is likely to be an enormous attraction between the two and warmth of expression which both the signs need to feel comfortable in a relationship. But sometimes Fire may horrify the Water, leading to devastation.

A Cancer man is basically a strongly focused and determined person with great sense of humor and pronounced leadership skills. He is quite enduring and shows a lot of compassion. Once he aims for something, he hardly looks back or regret on his decision. In love with a Leo woman, he can play the role of an ideal romantic lover effortlessly. He easily woos his Leo woman with his loving nature and perfect gentleman attitude. But his possessiveness can make her uncomfortable and his mood swings may also confuse her during their courtship.

A Leo woman is an extremely graceful woman with all the tantrums and delicacies possible. She loves challenges and takes them head-on. She is full of pride and elegance and doesn’t stand to any ridicule. Generally she is an exceptionally generous and warm lady with all the qualities of leadership. When in love with a Cancer man, she gives passion and strength to their relationship. She respects him but in return demands equal respect and some more devotion from him. She is fairly a lady of high dignity but if she doesn’t get enough attention, she goes around to other places to have it. This flirting nature of hers can make the Cancer man insecure at times.

A Leo woman is a magnificent mate for a Cancer man. She is very kind and active partner who brings cheers and fervor in the life of the Cancer male. The mood swings displayed by him can annoy her but being a generous person, she tends to forgive quite easily. She always stands by him to support him during all the thick and thin. She provides her man with the much needed emotional security through her warm and generous nature and her passionate way of loving him. The great sense of humor of Cancer man keeps the spirits of his Leo female high as a result of which she gives him complete devotion and dedication.

A Cancer man perfectly makes the man of a Leo woman’s dreams. Though at times she finds him strange due to his insecure nature but his sensitivity always impresses her. He provides a cocoon for the Leo girl to protect her from the people who are most likely to hurt her and make her feel very secure in his presence. He never dominates on his lady and let her make her own decisions. Most of the times she has an upper hand in making decisions, but when her thought process becomes too capricious, then he takes charge of things with all his power and wisdom. He expresses his displeasure towards his Leo love in a very subtle manner instead of losing his temper. His composed attitude helps her to become more loyal and take the relationship more seriously.

The compatibility between the Cancer man and Leo woman can be extremely good as lovers as they give up all the grudges and fall deeply and selflessly in love with each other. He who is totally in love with her supports her to take the leap in to a career which interests her and he also let her take the reigns of the house. At the same time, she respects him and follows his lead with complete devotion. She inspires him to become more experimental in life and fill warmth of love in his heart while he teaches her to be less aggressive and cools down her arrogant fury with his calm watery approach.

The Leo woman can gladly let the Cancer man take the lead as far as the physical aspect of the relationship is concerned. So it’s like that she rules in day time and he rules in bed time. They will have a great physical relationship as both of them have similar kind of desires. The emotions exuded by both of them will make their physical relationship a lot more interesting. She will sometimes display a cold exterior if her ego gets hurt in any way, and he can frequently adopt an indifferent attitude if he is rejected for certain reasons. Compassion serves as the foundation for the physical relationship between them. Lack of compassion may make their physical relationship lackluster. It would help him in bed if he, once in a while, gifts her some sexy jewelry or her favorite dress or something. She always feels so feminine, so girlish, so adored when she wears them. In turn she gives him a very good, unexpected show. She could feel the excitement coursing through her veins and her heart pounds as he looks at her with love and desire, equally.

A Cancer man loves his Leo woman graciously and with complete sincerity. He never tries to dominate her but definitely tries to manage her life in a better way. On the other hand she worships him for the immense security and support he provides in all aspects of life. She gives him the devotion he craves for and provides a very stimulating partner. But the mood swings of the Cancer man can confuse her and she may feel offended at times. Moreover his insecurities and possessive nature may make her feel restricted at times. What irritates him is generally her extravagance as she loves to live like a queen and her flirting nature which she enjoys to get attention from other men. This attitude of her turns him cold and there can be problems in their relationship. To get it back on the right track she just needs to give up some of her false pride and he needs to be more trusting.

I’m a Cancer man. With a Leo woman. And yes, as Cancer man, I tend to be inconsistent and moody. It doesn’t mean I don’t know what I want. Or that I’m unreliable or can’t be trusted as a stable provider. Just means that my consciousness is sensative to various energies and I have little conscious control of it. Hence the mood swings. But in background I always know what I want. My LEO woman… to be with her forever. So Leo woman, don’t have our inconsistincies/moods put you off.
In addition, I can testify (from my experience), I’m caring, protective and it’s all about 1 person…. and that is my Leo woman. Cancer man have no interest in other partners. So don’t worry about your Cancer man cheating, or him finding someone else.
Reason I love Leo is she’s interesting, fun and playful. And yes, she too has typical traits of dominance during the day. Which I’m fine with, however I dominate in bed. So it balances out.
And yes, Leo woman are very stubborn and good luck getting them to see your point of view. So if you disagree about something, don’t even bother arguing. Your Leo woman will crush you. And will only walk about even more convinced of her point of view. So as a Cancer man, expect to swallow your ego, and compromise.
What else? Cancer man are sensative. Criticism hurts them a lot. So Leo’s, tone down your feedback… don’t make it sound so critical. You’ll hurt your man. We are VERY sensative. It’s our nature.
Should a Cancer man go for a Leo woman? You’ll likely find her irrisistable. And she’ll feel very intrigued by you. How it turns from then, is history for you to write. I love my Leo woman. :)

This is super accurate!! :)
I’m a Leo woman in love with my Cancer man. I’m August 3rd and he is July 14th.
He’s the sweetest, most caring, and loving person I know, and definitely most patient! What really attracted me to him is that I found him mysterious in many ways. I never knew why I thought he was so mysterious, maybe because he was so quiet and I’m so talkative full of questions lol. Him and I have a very good relationship. We can talk to each other, joke around, be serious, whatever. Not to mention the sex, wow, full of fire works everytime. I always have fun when I’m with him. He brings out the soft side of my leoness, which I absolutely love. He makes me feel really secure and warm when I with him. It’s such just an amazing feel I have when I’m with him. We balance each other out and know how to make each other feel better. Also i can’t forget all the fun I have when we go out. I had never had a dull moment from going to the movies or a fancy dinner, he’ll keep you happy and laughing the whole time.  I never would of that I would have found someone like him! He is so different from any other sign I’ve met. He has taught me patience and how to be more understsnding and not to burst when I’m angry. I could go on! <3
The ‘bad’ side of our relationship is the arguments. I can’t be wrong. Than he stays quiet. He just hides in his shell and won’t come out, and when he does, he’s very cold. Sometimes it’s really hard to speak to him, but the one thing that never changes is that argument will be resolved. It just takes a while. Also,  not enough attention. I love attention from him, but sometimes it can be the last thing he wants to give me. I have never gone out to look for attention, I just try super hard to get it from him.
My advice to anyone who has read this and you are leo woman: be nice with your words. That’s only thing that will make your cancer man hide in his shell. I know from experience. We all know, ladies. 
Cancer men: give your leo woman all your attention. She’ll be purring in your arms right before you know it ;)
Other than that, enjoy the relationship. It’s a great match! <3

I, once had a CANCER Man born july 4. He brings out the best in me. With him I become a beautiful person. He showers me with gift, love and money. with him I am sweeter and always give him a naughty purr. He had his gazed in his eyes full of love for me. And respected me. When i made a mistake flirted with a Pisces guy while we were thousands of miles apart for six months I admitted to him in all honestly. he got furious initially over the phone and didnt contact me for three months. Then when finally he called me saying that it was his fault for leaving me alone and that he forgives me. He then showers me with expensive clothes, jewelries, chocolates with fine wine and huge  amount of money again. He even help out my family financially. We never had a closure. We remain good friends anyways and he had 2 girlfiends which he ended breaking up because He keeps on comparing them to me. And i stop criticizing his gf andany comments  i just keep it to myself. All i want for him is to be happy. I stop accepting gifts and money from him out of guilt. i cannot afford to hurt him anymore. He is such a beautiful person. He called me “perfection”. I am his cuddlebun, angel, honey and cheeky girl. He is my honey. he is always available for me. Never rejected any of my calls or emails. No matter how exhausted at work, he makes himself availble for me to chat even overnight.
His gone anyway and I miss so much. 
I am leo woman born aug. 15.

Mature Cancer man is the best for Leo woman. 
I can get very naughty with my cancer man  and he just enjoy my company so much. he is quite jealous with other guys and even gay friends around me though. He let me enjoy my time and accompany me in disco, parties and tolerate my friends for the sake of my happiness. he is also very supportive to me. He never even once ask me on how and where i spent his money. HE said over and over to me that “When i gave you the money its all yours to spend and i dont care how and where you spend it. its all yours.”.He brings me to beaches, and out of the country trips. we travel quite a lot. he gives so much time for me. Ohh!! How i miss him. He pampers me with so much love and attention.With Him I can just be me without any pretentions. Sex is also good.

I am a Cancerian and I need help. I am desperately in love with a Leo. She’s also a very distant relative of my family. We are great friends, have many things in common also (like music and movie taste, supporter of same football team, clothing style, interacting style and surprisingly when I get busy, I hear she was also busy at that same time. She exercises at gym whereas I exercise free handed. The catch is we stay far from each other and so when I miss her I call her and if she’s free she answers it with nice greeting.). Once I told her casually that I like her but she reverted that I am your aunt (she’s actually couple of years younger than me) and lets just stay that way. I know Leos don’t stand rejection and I suspect that she thinks our families wont approve this relation. And thats why to not to get her heart broken she is taking this defensive measure of posing herself as my aunt. She acknowledges I am a great guy but doesn’t seem to realize that she’s NOT my aunt. So please help how I can go forward? PS: I didnt know about her existence for about 25 years and once she came to know me, she helped me in a serious matter for which my life has now changed a lot. She was present during my failure and so I dont want to let her be absent during my success. I desperately need your help guys.

as a leo woman, men always mis interpret my being friendly and kind as falling in love/crush/or that I like them. Perhaps your leo girl is just being really nice and friendly to you. We are not so shy type. Maybe she really feels that somehow you are relatives. Try to read her body language. There are a lot of thing you have to take notice not just the things she say. if she really likes you she will send you some message verbally and in body language. Be kind and generous to her. its not that she is materialistic,( Im not so much into it. I just want my guy to prove that I am his priority and he is not stingy when it comes to me.) Treat her in fancy restaurant if you have a budget and give her gift with class. Be mannerly man with a little toughness, be gentle with her at the same time be a MAN! the one she will feel secure and safe.

Thanks for you reply. Last night we had a long chat in whatsapp. She told about her tough times she is going on now (I also gave her some suggestions), what she feels when facing any issue, how to accept them and informed me that I should move on from the girl I have loved in my college, when she heard that the girl has recently married some other guy, even though she knew I had got a job. And informed me I should learn to give space to others (since u might know that cancerians hold on to the woman they truly love which will annoy her a little .).
She pointed out my shortcoming and told me that so that I can improve myself. No other girl has done that to me before no matter how much close we were. Now you might think that these are your general gestures to help your friends right? But who does that at 1:30AM after watching soccer world cup when you’ll be going to bed?? And that too to a guy you dont love? She is pretty open to me and so I dont think there’s rejection talking …… if she wanted she could have told me right there …….. I think she just want to see how much a MAN I can be.
And coming to the relative thing …….. she is my grandfather’s (mother sided) maternal uncle’s grand-daughter. [Everything is Grand :P hehe] . I can tell my family right now that I love her and want to spend the rest of my life with her, only her. But involving our parents now would enrage her and I dont want to make her angry to me. So please say how can I go forward. Because I have realized that she is the reason I will be earning and saving my money.

WOW!  I am loving everything yall are saying!  I have a deeper question though for the Cancer man.  I was married for 20 years to a Virgo, (which by the way Leo women, not a match no matter how hard you try), anyway, I have bean divorced for 4 years and because of my negitive relationship with my Virgo I have bean turned off by guys in general…untill, along came this amazing Cancer!  All of a sudden I am finding myself conecting again.  He is married, hang on dont judge me yet, his wife cheated on him and he caught her.  It is obviouse that he was madly in love with her and he is totally confused, but now he is courting me.  He is not divorced so I just linger in the background until he decides what he is doing.  My question is, how forgiving is a Cancer man?  If he is acting interested in me does this mean I remind him of his wife, Am I waisting my time building a friendship with him hoping deep down for something more?  So confused right now.  Trying to protect myself, while giving him marital advice.  I feel a heartach coming on lol

I am a Leo woman so incredibly in love with my Cancer man. We’ve been dating since 10/2013 & it’s been quite a battle for me. He lives 6-8 hours away so we don’t get to see each other very often at all. What makes it hard is his lack of communication. It starts well, but he then retreats which makes me think he’s playing games. I can see here from the description and the comments that this is the norm for Cancer men. Even though he doesn’t respond, I still send inspirational pictures and quotes in hopes of keeping his spirits up. I sometimes let him know what’s going on with me because I like sharing my good news with him. I don’t wanna lose him. He fills my heart with a joy previously unknown to me. Am I doing the right thing in keeping in touch the way I am, or is it best to leave him alone?

HI Lioness ! I am a divorced 47 yr cancer man and from my experience I can say we do not really ever forgive infidellity, we will hang on in there and the relationship will be cold and nasty, but we never forget and we never forgive. I had an ex of 30 years ago come back on recently and say that was the happiest time of her life and any chance…don’t think so thanks, been there seen that.
It seems we – cancer man – wait for the next ‘dream’ to come along before letting completly go of the last, but once in a new relationship then that is all that matters – we wont forget what has gone before but should they come knocking with they’re “im sorry i made a mistake”‘s it will be met with an ‘ah sorry, we had our chance’. If he’s not re-hooked up of course he could be tempted, as sometimes for cancer any company is better than no company.
Cancer guy is shy, if he is trying to flirt with you he is interested, and if he is interested then he is – really interested – you have probably already replaced the previous one as who he thinks of when he closes his eyes at night, so go for it, let him know how you feel, unless you also betray him you will have his complete love.
Just a point, the cancer who is serially betrayed – as I have – will be even harder to convince he needs your love, he knows he needs it, but he will be frightened that you will just be like all the others, and eventually play with his emotions, so be patient with him. Whats really funny is I am looking again now and I always just assumed that Cancer / Leo would be a terrible match because how strong and argumentative Leo is perceived to be – how wrong could I have been, I see all the traits people have writen here. Anyway good luck, love him and he will love you forever.

Hi Haide, careful you don’t just turn into a best friend ! The way he is behaving sounds to me that he is not secure or not sure in the relationship, he will need to know you are devoted to him, then in my experience distance is irrelevant as you will always be in his thoughts, every minute of every day, and absence certainly makes the cancerian heart grow fonder.
Cancer man is shy at saying what he wants till you’re intimate, my best friend and sadly probably the love of my life lives 1500km away, it could have worked if we had both wanted it to, there was a chance and I missed it, I have many close friends, and they just dont realise that with a little nudge in the right direction from them it could be so much more. See – us crabs are just misunderstood and why dont you all get the subliminal psychic messages we are sending out ??? !!! Good luck.

@krabben, I’m so glad you commented cause I’m at my wit’s end. We’ve been intimate many times. I don’t hold back my feelings either. I’ve tried talking to him, but he got called into work. By phone he came across as mean. When we’re together he’s amazing. When he’s gone, he won’t communicate. Ignores my text messages. Feels like he’s playing games. I honestly feel like I’m in a relationship by myself. Today I texted 4 times – no response. I don’t know what else to do, but I know I don’t wanna let go.

@haiderod, loves horrible sometimes huh and I can’t really imagine why he is been like this, someone texts or emails me i’m straight back at them – from a cancer point of view thats building up security which is what we love, we’re in it for the long haul, not a few months, in all relationships – love or work.
At the end of the day I guess you have to say to yourself  ‘ i’m worth more than this, I have tried my best’. You don’t suppose he can have found out thru inquiries anything he dosn’t like which you didn’t tell him ? In a new relationship I think cancer forgives anything in the partners past, but if there was something they hid, cancer man would maybe see that as deceit and feel afronted.  
I didn’t think Cancer played games  – unless some other part of his life is troubling him, work or finance or a berevement. One thing cancer loves is the chase and attention of a beloved partner or would be partner, if he isn’t responding as you say he’s not, then give him the cold shoulder for a while – let him miss you, sooner or later I would think he will wonder what has happened, maybe when whatever else is troubling his mind has passed, and when he does contact you again (trust me we always do, we can’t help ourselves) he will wonder where you went or why you stopped writing, so then you must educate him – most important – tell him you wanted to be there, you were trying everything but he didn’t respond, and make him understand that he’s not the only one that needs to feel loved, and make him understand you are not happy at the way he treated you, shut you out – BUT that you appreciate him so much you want to try again, then if the same trait pops up again, tell him immediatly and in no uncertain terms exactly what he is doing – again.  I am only a mere cancer man lol, but that is what would work with me. Good luck, don’t waste too much time worrying about him if he is not responding, life goes on, find another, you’re worth more than an unresponsive crab :-)

So, I am a leo woman currently dating a cancer man. I mean, he is amazing because he has captured my attention like no one has. I am there for him to comfort whenever he needs me and well, I just want to make him happy. I have broken up with him before because I was going through a tough moment where I was jobless. I needed him, he wasn’t there for me. Prior to that he just kept breaking up with me out of no where, his mood swings were servely confusing me and he kept saying he isnt good enough for me, but he really loves me. SO through that broken up stage, he keptt trying to comminicate me to get me back. I was angry at him because I felt like he wouldn’t consider my feelings at times. There was no one else and I often had to convince him that I wanted him in which I did. Then we got back together again because the feelinsg were there and its just so intense and passionate. AT times he would lie to me about things that he shouldn’t, and that concerns me because does that mean that later on will he cheat on me and lie about it? He has bought me so many expensive things and I appreciate him for that. I love him for who he is not on what he buys me. Yet, he still keeps saying that I deserve better. He blockes me out at times, but I don’t stray away. Im still there trying to get him to comminicate with me. Often I feel like I need to hold back because he will just run away. He tends to do that a lot, when things get tough, he runs away. Im there trying to talk to him about it because commincation is key. He always leaves but always comes back. I really don’t know what to think at times.

Cancer men are literally drooling over Leo women while Leo women are completely uninterested. It’s not compatible, good folks!
People often assume Cancer and Leo are compatible because Cancer is emotional and Leo sensitive, but they often tend to forget that Leo seek adventure, and is a playful light hearted optimist that thrives on spreading happiness and positivity. The Cancer, well, it’s the opposite. Cancers drain out energy from their environment and they are routine-driven and moody and they cannot stand a successful neighbor or associate or partner. Cancers are also connected to their homes and their mothers. Leos want to run away from their homes.  
And why do people always assume that Cancers being some sort of “smothering devout servants” to Leos would be turning us Leos on? That’s a total misconception again. Leos don’t want a servant by their sides. Leos like challenges. They want an equal and unfortunately, Cancer man can never be equal to a Lioness. You can’t even put these two in the same sentence.  I’m a Leo rising, Leo sun, Leo mercury and I don’t find Cancers attractive at all. Even with my venus in Cancer, I don’t seem to find them appealing. And I am surrounded by Cancers.
