Cancer and Leo Compatibility

Cancer and Leo are two worlds apart. With their striking differences, they have distinctive approach towards life both personally and professionally. Leo finds moodiness if Cancer very disconcerting while Cancer cannot stand proud nature of Leo. But with a generous dose of tolerance and understanding, this relationship can work very well.

Typical Cancer are very gentle people with lots of emotions and sophisticated mannerism. They are the people who work hard with determination to achieve success which is more a synonym of money for them. Though Cancer are a bit flirtatious in nature but once they are in serious relationship, they prove to be very caring and loyal partners. While Cancer are usually calm people with soft eyes and friendly smile, they cannot handle rejection and criticism and hence are also never rude or arrogant themselves too. Cancer find stability to be most integral part of their lives and extravagances is a crime in their eyes. But the Cancer can be very generous if any of their family members needs financial help. They are also known for their possessiveness and can suffer from unknown insecurities and fears at times.

The Leo are proud and quite passionate people about everything. They need to be in the spotlight and have control over everything around them because this is the route to their generosity, loyalty and compassion. This stems from the courage and sensuality that makes up the Leo, hence the need for compliments is always there. Most Leo are hard working as they aspire for a king-size lifestyle. It might be difficult to picture Leo as outstanding achievers, when caught lazing in their leisure hours. But when they take up some work, they execute it with a fervor that can often make the onlookers awestruck. Their loyalty and grace are more predominant if they are admired and if not then one have to face their arrogance and anger.

Both Cancer and Leo can make a great duo in all relations, who lend their support to each other during the thick and thin. The Leo can provide the Cancer with the much needed emotional security and the Cancer can fulfill the desires of Leo. Due to Cancer’s wonderful sense of humor, the Leo feel a deep connection with them, and the Leo can even wholeheartedly forgive Cancer for their frequent mood swings. Both of them share the love of photography which helps in developing a creative compatibility between them. With the aid of the Cancer’s accurate instincts, the Leo are able to transform their dreams into reality. Despite of many turbulent phases in their relationship, Leo and Cancer turn out to be wonderful partners in all walks of life. The Leo should give the Cancer the opportunity to take charge finances and emotions to keep peace.

The Cancer might think that the Leo is not careful with money whereas the Leo thinks that they have got an economical approach towards financial matters. The Leo can be heartbroken if they cannot get the things which according to them are a necessity, which is sometimes offered in excess by the Cancer and sometimes avoided as they feel that the needs are actually luxuries. There are some Leo who are good at spending money, and they share a great rapport with Cancer. Despite possessing a sensitive nature, the Cancer can ruin the Leo’s confidence, over a period of time. When the Leo stops being tolerant about the Cancer’s constant mood swings then they can help the Cancer to lead a better life by changing some of their inane habits. The Cancer should try to show the Leo the right path but at no point should the Cancer try to dampen the Leo’s spirits.

Cancer and Leo make great relations with each other though they are just opposite to each other. In fact their difference add the beauty to their relation and makes it complete. Being siblings, friends or colleagues they share a warm and helpful relationship with of course an upper hand of the Leo especially at the places where spotlight is concerned. As relatives they only get in good connection if the Cancer knows to flatter the Leo, else they may just be easy going and less considering. They can also have a good business venture, especially if the finances are taken care by Cancer and dealings are done by Leo. A love relation of Cancer and Leo goes great in all the ways except for the insecurities of Cancer and need to get plenty of devotion, by Leo. Both Leo and Cancer together make very reliable parents with Cancer with an upper hand and both also make obedient and loving children with lots of talents to make their parents proud of them.

Both the Cancer and Leo should realize that certain things should be done in limit or else it can hurt the other person. The Leo should give up their arrogance and extravagance together with their unnecessary desire of spotlight while Cancer should try to be more stable emotionally and more expressive. Also Cancer have to give up their past and live for their present and future. The day they start implementing this idea into their lives then they start experiencing less number of problems in their relationships. Patience does not come easily to the Leo and the Cancer are never prepared to learn certain words of wisdom from the experienced Leo, due to their proud nature. But deep down the Cancer are aware that they need to learn some lessons on life with the aid of the Leo. They should try to learn from each other, so that their relationship can prosper.

    I read about these compatibilities but I wonder if it’s different with genders. For example, I’m a leo man pursuing a cancer woman and while she is very emotional, I understand how to give her space and she comes back when she’s calm. But I never see cancer men being very successful with leo women. My brother is a cancer and I love him to death but sometimes he’s very emotional and I sometimes piss him off because the things that hurt his feelings don’t even show up on my radar.

    I am a Leo woman in a relationship with a Cancer man. We are a match made in HEAVEN! We have just the right amount of love and affection for each other. He is so very expressive and its even better when we are alone. He is the Moon and I am the Sun, two perfectly place beings. Don’t get me wrong, we have our oppositions, but they are received more as lessons learned than disagreements. We compliment each other very well. I have experienced a number of unfaithful relationships, but he has proven to me the depth of his devotion and our future is bright. Leos and Cancers are an odd couple, but I encourage this pairing simply because I have tried my hand with our “perfect matches”, I.E., Sags and Aries, even a Libra. It didn’t work out, not because they weren’t good folks, but because all “perfect matches” are not always aligned with the people who are involved. Long story short, keep an open mind and an open heart, and make sure the two of you are on the same page!

      Hello Kendra,

      I’ m happy that you have found your love at last. So what do you really like about him above all else?

      Is it his expressive behavior?

      Is it his dedication towards you?

      Or may be his warmth and affection?

      Can you SPECIFICALLY pick something you like about his personality?

      Being with cancer man does it have significant change in your life than any other relationship you had before?

      What do you mean when you said “you both have the right amount of love for each other”? Do you believe love has amount?

      Sorry to ask you all this question, that’s how I learn things.

    i’m a leo woman, being with a cancer man for 8 years, one word CHALLENGING. i seriously can’t handle how he lives in the past, it frustrates me immensely, secondly his mood swings are the pits. I am a go lucky kinda person, full of energy, whereas he is the total opposite of me, always gloomy, depressed, moody and unpredictable. He just drains me emotionally. Sorry i am sounding so negative, but this relationship is tiring. However they are good listeners, very caring and family orientated. Good luck to our leos

    Hi everyone, I am a Cancerian woman and with a Leo man. Been together 18yrs now and are still in-love,
    I have had other partners but have never felt a bond as I do with my man. He is my soul mate, best friend, and lover. 
    We really compliment each other and rarely argue (strange..I know 🙂 We have so much in common and he always makes me laugh. It doesnt feel like 18yrs as the feelings we have for each other are just so strong. 
    I see myself with him for eternity and would never want anyone else. I dont think I would ever find someone with all his qualities. He is the best.
    Wish he was my first love. The Leo man, if you find the right one is the perfect match for the Cancerian woman. 
    Once a Cancerian woman goes Leo man she should never go back!
    We are the perfect match and everywhere we go people always say what a lovely couple we are. So it must be true. Good luck to all those looking for love.

    I had a relationship with a leo man for 5 years, we met when we were both going through divorce and i have to say we had an amazing passionate loving relationship . we were so InSync and inlove alsowe were best friends! we had lot’s of great things that other couples dont have! The Big problem for me that he was a big  LIER!!! about diffrent things !! I broke up with him many times because as much as he loved me he also hurt me, and im as a cancer need to feel emotionally secure. If he wouldent fight for us i would be long gone!but after 5 years of ups and downs between the lies and the financial instability i had enought !!!
    He is a great guy just not for me!!!
    As much as i still love him i know i deserve better and maybe one day we can be friends .

    This is just so true. I love my Leo man. He is my great partner in life. He is my first love and my last

    Leo woman and cancer man?

  14. Marie-xxx October 29th, 2011

    My heart has been broken by my Leo boyfriend when he broke up with me yesterday. He says he cannot love me completely because he cannot forget his ex (which he won’t take back either – too proud). He also says that he wants to be the total boss in the relationship and finds me too strong. I think that this description of the Cancer / Leo compatibility is very true. Unfortunately for me, my beloved shaggy lion wants his sun to shine all the time and unfortunatly for both of us (because I do think we can have a very successfull and great relationship) does not appreciate that the moon shines also. If only he could have seen the rare beauty of a bright sun and shy moon together in the day sky. Or appreciate the awestruck beauty of a full moon. I did not try and outshine him but I am a moon.

    For me a cancer woman and leo man is the perfect match have had relationships with 2 in the past we need to remember we cancer females can be moody and insecure and can’t expect anyone of any sign to fully understand how deep we think and how much we love. The main thing is when a leo man loves you and you are able to fully express your love with him and make him take control massage his ego a lot and he is putty in your hands even though i ended both relationships for good reasons i still have love for them and if i can find a leo man who has no baggage and has all the traits of strength and beauty i have found in the past that would make me so happy. Cancer female leo male is a win win.

  19. barbara August 22nd, 2010

    i love my leo man. he is loyal and protective. i need that.

  20. Tammy July 22nd, 2010

    very very true in the midst of my current relationship with the cancerian..
