Cancer and Sagittarius Compatibility

Cancer and Sagittarius together make stimulating but somewhat confusing connection and their relations are a bit of challenge from both the sides. Sagittarians like to experience surprises and unpredictability, while Cancer feels secure in a predictable atmosphere. But if they both give each other some time and allow growing, they can create some fun filled bonds.

Cancer might portray a very stern personality but if one delves deeper then they realize that Cancer are very sensitive and cautiously intelligent creatures who appreciate their superiority with humbleness and use it properly. They are one of a kind determined people who are steadily strong and achieve success in all conditions. Cancer also cultivate great sense of humor and pronounced leadership skills. At times they can change their minds according to the opinions of the people they love the most, if they find it worthy. Cancer people are highly imaginative with a good taste for art and music and they have special values for traditions and culture in their hearts. Cancer are always very protective and warm towards every person they love and especially their family and parents.

Sagittarians are quite the social creature. Their optimism and ideas are always soaring high in the sky and their strong urge to know things make them a keen observer. They always have a crowd of friends around them and one can seldom find them alone. The Sagittarius do not mince words, and do not posses any type of diplomacy. For them diplomacy equates to hypocrisy. They are very cheerful but at the same time can be quite skeptical about certain things. They are quite bright, often highly studious and intellectual, and optimistically philosophical, but equally stubborn, contrary, unpredictable and amazingly swift at racing away from problems. Sagittarius are bluntly honest and hardly pay any heed to the feeling of anyone once they decide to speak the truth.

Through the sensitivity and sincerity displayed by Cancer and Sagittarius respectively, they can understand each other’s emotions completely. With time the Cancer realizes that the Sagittarius have an ability to multiply their wealth within a short period of time. Cancer need to be appreciated even when they are going through rough times. Sagittarius always remains inquisitive about the Cancer and it is the sheer inquisitiveness which makes their bond stronger. Initially Cancer might not be able to appreciate the Sagittarian’s practical jokes, but when they realize their intentions behind it then they have no qualms with the jokes. Also the Cancer try to make the Sagittarius sensitive towards many things in life, but with time they realize that Sagittarians cannot match up to Cancer’s sensitivity.

The bone of contention between the Sagittarius and the Cancer would often be due to issues related to money. The Cancer loves to save money for the rainy days whereas the Sagittarius likes to enjoy their present life by spending money. They can find out a solution for this problem which is mutually decided by both of them. Cancer might express their displeasure over the Sagittarians’ money spending habits, by passing harsh remarks at them or just by crying inconsolably. But when Sagittarius see Cancer crying then they realize that they have done something wrong and try to find out ways to console the Cancer. After sometime even the Cancer realize that they have hurt the Sagittarius with their harsh words and try to create a peaceful environment. The Sagittarius love their freedom so the Cancer have to draw the line between their protective and possessive attitude so that the Sagittarius do not feel suffocated.

Cancer and Sagittarius share a very fun filled bond with each other in the form of buddies, siblings, colleagues and relatives. They never compete with each other and usually give their best to improve the other person and bring some worthy changes in them. As business partners they may not be best fit for each other as a Sagittarius gets bored of one thing very soon and business usually needs ample determination and patience. So the Cancer partner has to make most efforts in such case. Love relationship of Cancer and Sagittarius can have many colors from gloomy to merry depending on their connection and time they give to each other to get over with their differences. Parents and children share a very special bond as no parents can be a better friend for Cancer children then Sagittarius parents and no parents except Cancer can be more protective for the easy going Sagittarian children.

As the time passes and Cancer and Sagittarius get along with each other for a greater time, they start facing some major problems of their characters. Both of them do not like to get dominated by their partner. Some problems can arise due to this even though the Sagittarius does not want to don the cap of the leader but at the same time they do not want to follow the orders given to them. If they want they can follow the orders or simply refuse to follow the instruction given by the Cancer. Cancer might realize that any relationship with Sagittarius might be a bit difficult in the initial stages but with time they let go of their overtly sensitive nature. When the Cancer stops being sensitive then they can enjoy many things in life and most importantly strike the right chord with Sagittarius. When their sensitive nature is not overpowering their personality then Cancer can deal with the blunt comments of Sagittarius in a more mature manner.

    I’ve known my Scorpio for about 7 years now and our relationship has been anything but ordinary. We have extreme highs and lows but we can’t seem to let each other go. I completely agree with this article, My Scorpio is very magnetic and so many people are drawn to her. At times it makes me jealous, despite never being the jealous type. I think we bring out the best and worse out of each other. I honestly couldn’t imagine my life without her.  She is a very amazing individual. Sometimes when I get angry I try to think of the positive she gives me instead of any negative situations.  When I’m enraged she’s cold and distant and that makes me even more infuriated. When she’s angry I’m not sure how to respond or I say something that she finds rude and it’s a disaster. I think those are the main struggles that we have to overcome. I need to be more mindful of my word choice and she needs to be less cold. On a positive note, when I’m having a hard time she’s always there to listen. I can tell her anything and she will never judge me, I offer her the same but she always seems to be closed off. I think the relationship between us can be very intense but I definitely wouldn’t trade it in for anything else. She is definitely my soul mate, despite whatever Sagittarius said compatibilities may be.

    I am saggitarius woman who went on a date with a cancer man. He was very grounded and he threatened my independence. I ran back to my gemini boyfriend. The cancer man seemed to care even though we communicated for a while after I told him the truth. We only went on one date but we ended amiably. I think he held a grudge for telling him that I was back to the old boyfriend. Cancer offered me money and gifts which I turned down due to me knowing that I had feelings the ex. He was very patient with me. The cancer man I met is also a womanizer. As a Saggitarius woman I work hard because I value my freedom.  I pay for all my spending. I am a loner and love it but people are drawn to me. I have a friend who is saggitarius woman  and married a cancer man who is completely opposite. He depends on her for everything and he too emotional and sensitive when she asks him to get a job. He is possessive because he thinks she will leave.She pays for everything for him. The marriage is rocky at most for them. People, it is good not get obsessed with Horoscopes. When you love someone and the time is right for both of you then commit. Good commucation is key and space for those that need it once in a while.

    Sag women very, not every sag is aweful and not all will be exactly the same. As for the tendency to need freedom I try to balance that out. I want certain freedom but stability at the same time. The freedom I value most is the freedom to always be my happy go lucky self. Flirt from time to time but I’m not serious about it. I can’t have a jealous lover. N I need freedom to go out not to parties or anything but say a picnic in the park. Fun in the sun kind of thing. I love nature But I’m not the roughing it out in the wilderness type. I’m not a big spender and I don’t ask my partner for money. It makes me feel guilty about but if he insists on buying lunch or getting something then okay. I know that sometimes you should let ppl spend on you because they want to and they feel good doing it. I can not keep spreadsheets and stuff like that. Haha. I’m pretty good at reading ppl and figuring them out. I’m not a crazy sag like everyone’s describing. I’m more laid back I guess.

    I’m a sag woman and I think he is a cancer. It just describes him to the T so far. But we are still in the beginning stages and I find this to be true, “Cancer and Sagittarius together make stimulating but somewhat confusing connection and their relations are a bit of challenge from both the sides.” I like him and I think he likes me. We have something together like a connection but its hard to further that along. I talk a lot, I’m honest and blunt and way more open. But he isn’t. He’s sweet but doesn’t talk much only sometime do we have good conversation. This makes me wonder if he likes me to. I don’t know how to proceed, what to do or what to say. I feel like he doesn’t care about me but part of me says he does he’s just……different. Omg cancers are so confusing lol. Everyone tells me he’s totally into me but if he isnt up front about it then I just don’t know. :/

    My Sag female partner was very quiet.  Didn’t go out much or make friends easily although was very likable.  She expected me to have tons of friends though so she could socialise with them.  But then didn’t feel she fitted in etc etc.
    She didn’t spend my money at all, but instead wanted to pay for everything of her own.  Like I couldn’t even buy her a coke at McDonalds.  She was really into savings accounts and spreadsheets and things.
    She kept randomly wanting to change things just as we were settled, such as we’ll be saving for a house and she’ll suddenly want to go to a different city than we planned. 
    A work acquaintance who occasionally gave her lifts in the morning suddenly became her best friend after she died, and she grieved as though it was her mother, and totally made me (her real “best friend”) feel completely inadequate in the process.
    She never cheated per se.  She got her future relationship nicely set up before leaving me and getting with him two weeks later and never showed any sadness or remorse for any arguments, most of which were caused by her ever-changing nature.  She came across very cold a lot to be honest.
    Honestly, I’d stay far away from Sag girls.  There were a lot of good moments but looking back on it, way too non-commital and uncaring for a Cancer to put up with.

  8. justinb113 August 20th, 2013

    Strange.  I’m a cancer and I read cancerxgemini and it summed up my current relationship perfectly.
    I dated a Saggitarius for 5 years and she was nothing like what is written here in the slightest. 

  9. beawesome July 25th, 2013

    @aamir_softdev I am a sag female that married a cancer male. if your wife was a bad mother that hasn’t nothing to do with her being a sag…my mom is a sag and i wouldn’t be who i am today if it wasn’t for her, my dad is also a cancer and i learn sags and cancers are not a good mix at all…at least both in my case and in my mom’s case. All the sag females i know take care of their kids they may not be the best parent but they do as good as they can.

  10. aamir_softdev June 14th, 2013

    @Diketso I am cancerian man, married with a sagittarius girl, I am regret of marrying her, life is hell, I dreamed of having a family but it just turned into a pain and nightmare for me. I myself just dont know what to do, since she is the mother of my dead baby son, who died just after 54 days of birth under his mother suffocated only because of having a Sagg shit mother. I urge you all cancerians, please stay away from Sags. I am ready for a divorce, because whatever happens they will never change. they are the same after all saggs

  11. TheMostLevelSunkenChapel November 9th, 2012

    I just have this gut feeling that the next woman I become romantically involved with is going to be a cancer!! Haha. I’m a sagittarius, but my rising sign is cancer so it’s no wonder I always attract water signs. My last two relationships were with a pisces and a scorpio. I’m not a fan of pisces women because I find them to be very rude, melodramatic, shameless liars, and gigantic cry-babies anytime they are confronted about their nasty attitudes!! Haha. Did I mention that pisces women drive me nuts??? 😛
    I always get on incrediby well with scorpios because of their loyalty and their crude/dark sense of humor. Never tried dating a cancer woman though. I’ve always wanted to because they just strike me as being very generous and loyal lovers. Plus, cancerian women almost always have the most illuminating faces. Gotta love those round, twinkly eyes and that bright, ear-to-ear smile!! Sooooo freakin adorable!! 😉

    Thanks for posting everyone. I’m a Sagittarius man. I’m cautiously open minded here, so my validation comes very unbiased.

    Today I had a “platonic” meetup with a stranger (female Cancer) I met on craigslist, with the mutual intention of a no pressure friendship based on the common bond of both of us having been divorced for 2 years.
    We emailed for one day and met the next (she wanted action without wasting anyone’s time). While emailing, we aligned on just about every level. Here’s the reason that the hair stood up on my body while reading your posts; as I approached her from behind, 50ft away, having only seen her in one very unflattering photo, she sat outside a downtown coffee shop at a small table on the sidewalk, I called her name. She stood up and turned around like a dancer in slow motion. We looked at each other and I felt like I was caught in a strong current, my feet sliding across the bottom towards her.
    After what seemed like 30 minutes, was actually 2 hrs, I found that she had my hand in hers and was massaging as she was engaging my rambling, endless Sagittarius explanation of something I no longer recall. We connected very deeply, very quickly with amazing chemistry.
    Now, we are both a little older (early 40’s) and we both have traveled a few miles. This leads you to understand the 2nd time my hair stood up; in the description above, it talks about the special concessions and understandings that our signs need to have and to overcome. I think our similar life experiences have prepared us to make this composition with little effort. I planned on a one hour meetup. We held hands and walked my dog, stopping to kiss like 15 year-olds in a open city park. We are in our 40’s and were getting shouts of approval from all directions. It’s been 10 hours since we hugged and kissed goodbye. I can still smell her on me. It’s driving me nuts!

    I’ve been amazed by her all day. Now, since reading the description above and the collective posts, I’m amazed by all of our experiences.

    Warm regards and best wishes on your search!
    “Occy” the Aquanaught.

    i am cancer women in a relationship with a sagittarius man an i find this to be very true. sagittarius are very unpredictable an very hard to understand im very sensitive and he is very careless i have such a positive out look on life while has such a negative one i enjoy helping anyone while he hates helping others he is a big ass jokester but most of the time about the wrong things but in all honesty when they want to they can have a good heart im am extremely protective an have to learn to give him his space they are really good at manipulating people an telling wht u wana hear

  14. astrogirl December 6th, 2011

    Being a cancerian with a saggitarius man, I would say the article is fairly accurate. I wish I was not so sensitive for my sag man. I adore his brilliant sense of humour, his energy etc, But it is difficult sometimes because of my sensitivity! and his bluntness, which can be absolutely crushing. But with lots of effort, and I am the kind of person who is very happy to give him all the freedom he wants which makes a big difference, provided I fill the gaps with something I enjoy doing myself, its pretty good and if I could get over my stuck in the mud moodiness, I could lead a very exiciting life!!!

  15. shanita20 August 14th, 2011

    sagittarius men are fucking losers liars cheaters and decievers they tell you what you want to hear make up so many lies they cant rmember there first one and then when caught they run away like cowards and by the way i am a cancer woman i am sensitive but at the same right we are sensitive and over dramatic if given a reason just sayen #

  19. Tina January 22nd, 2011

    I am a sag woman dating a cancer man. I feel that he is very atentive,family oriented, love to travel, like quiet moments at the house so I can say he is adventures. I like that about him. He seems to like me. We enjoy each others company. He do not like someone that like to party. I am a home bound person. I love to communicate and not augurmental. I think two people should be able to set down to talk. I do like to spend money but I like to make my own money. I like to go fifty fifty on somethings were we are in the relationship together I love hard and he do too. I think we will make it but think in again we will see. He is a hard work I can say that. Just wish me all the blessing because I hope I finally have found my good man.

  20. Betty January 19th, 2011

    I am a cancer woman who dated a sag man…WOW! This article was pretty dead on. My relationship sad to say did not work out…I just recently broke it off with him. The money was always an issue…he was never willing to help financially but more than willing to live with me for months. Never once offering to help pay a bill. Never willing to make a commitment or strive to reach a deeper level of love. Also, very gossipy and judgmental of others. More willing to impress friends and work associates rather than his own family or friends. I did love his quest for knowledge, but found his laziness very difficult to handle. Absolutely no gumption. My experience with a sag love interest was indeed very revealing and for me as a cancer, I must be able to connect on a deeper level with who it is I intend to love…and vise versa. Also superficial in many ways…I sometimes felt like a novelty in his life.

  21. frenchie January 2nd, 2011

    Currently dating a Sag! Its a lot of work n great qualities but very brutal with his words. Though he has a point I wish he would be a lil more gentle.. time will tell. I believe if/when we both overcome r insecurities of getting hurt we will be fine

  22. ayisha December 1st, 2010

    hy im in a relationship with a sag guy and i think it is a bit difficult beacuse they r very aggressive and a bit harsh which a cancerian cant take and even if they leave a cancerian cannot find as much love as cancerian can and will surely come back to u sometyme

  23. Moodycrab October 17th, 2010

    Married a sagi then dated a sagi birthdates 1 day apart my honest opinion the worst match possible sagi men can be very possesive and jealous yes violent if they feel insecure and think they will loose you, shopaholics which will drive a cancer female crazy and mainly seem too want too impress others rather than the partner. Sexually not a good match emotionally not a good match and financially not a good match but in life there is always an exception to the rule, Leo, Scorpio, even Gemini tend to make better matches and that is going by other peoples relationships too even in friendship a sagi can aim to dominate and control a cancerian. This is must say is my opinion and based on what i have seen if you love him or her and are a cancer you will no doubt strive to see the good in the situation so nothing i say will matter anyway.

  24. lola September 11th, 2010

    i am a sag dating a cancer and we love eachother but hes so moody and hurts my feelings i guess its money issues i donno but i take really good care of him and ive done the impossible for him

  25. StoneHawk August 15th, 2010

    This descibes us. I have been married to a cancer woman for 3 years. The only thing different about this description is that I do not try to console her when she cries and also I’m a capricorn not a sagittarius.

  26. E August 10th, 2010

    WOW! I just went one date. I felt awkward cause I felt like I was excruciatingly talkative. He is Cancerean and I am a saggi… very outgoing and of course ask a lot of questions. But I have never been in a position in my life where anyone has ever made me feel like I was on a ‘talking marathon’. I was so unconfortable at the end of the date. I had to comment ‘u don’t talk much do you’ and he said ‘no’. Well, this helps alot cause I read he is not meant to talk, but now I feel like there will be no second date cause I do not want to be a in position where II have to refrain from acting in a particular way just not to offend or lose someone. It was very awkward!!!

  27. Charity July 18th, 2010

    I am a cancer woman and currently talking to a sag man..I like this compatibility reading because it offers info about how the two signs can be compatible. I find some characteristics to be true of him but I detect some cancer characteristics..and in me sag characteristics..I am a nurturer yet I am adventurous….

  28. alicia July 13th, 2010

    Omg. Omg so true.
    I’m a CANCER women deeply in love with a SAG might I say its a very difficult relationship but When there’s understanding between the both things are great. But I just can’t figure out y u sag are so stuborn n love playing the careless role

  29. Alyssa May 29th, 2010

    I am a Sag chick dating a Cancer guy 🙂 I know I’m stubborn, so does he, but it really seems like I have some of the traits of a Cancer. I dunno, I guess it seems I’m a little more sensitive to things… maybe just cuz I’m a chick 🙂

  30. Priscilla May 29th, 2010

    I am a cancer woman and I am dating a Sag. I must say everything I read above is so true. I feel like our lives are being put on display for all eyes to see. I am very sensitive and overly protective of him. He doesn’t say much but I can tell that he needs his space sometimes…………

  31. Daniel May 19th, 2010

    #3 ummm did ya not read the part where it said…”when CANCERS stop being so sensitive they can enjoy many things in life…” sorry not trying to be blunt, but according to my sagittarianism/foot in mouth disease…. violence and aggreessiveness is not a sagittarian trait unless provoked… someone has to be a stronger partner.. just sayin’

  32. krystal May 18th, 2010

    when i read this i totally felt like u were explaining me.. being a cancer woman i do believe that having a relationship with a sag/ is difficult…ive noticed them to be violent or agressive and thats also something a cancer women cant take

  33. roxany trujillo March 8th, 2010

    why do horoscpes exist?

  34. Diketso November 24th, 2009

    Am a Cancer women dating a Sagittarius man, I must say its very much true what I have read so far. It has also helped me to understand him more.
