Warning – Intensity city people! Cancer and Scorpio have potential to be the Bella and Edward of the dating world -brooding, sensual and ethereally beautiful – they create dark magic. When their powers are used for good, a life filled with intellectual and spiritual discovery is forged.
Occasionally it does go pear shaped – Scorpio fails to control their inner vampire and destroys Cancer who, in turn, allows themselves to be mentally and emotionally annihilated – not a couple to hang with if you want a pick me up. But if things go well they can be extremely charismatic, loving and devoted – in which case they’re totally worth inviting into the friendship circle.
Decoding Cancer and Scorpio friendships…
This friendship is a near perfect match – usually an enduring and lasting relationship. Both seek quality over quantity in a social group and value loyalty and reliability. Cancer/Scorpio are often instantly drawn to each other – as if the cosmos has suddenly aligned and created two perfect planets in the same orbit. They possess similar energy levels and would rather discuss Proust and politics for hours in front of a roaring fire than go clubbing.
Old souls – there’s a sentimentality in this friendship that inspires them to become collectors – Perhaps significant childhood-related memorabilia or antiques from an era they feel connected too. Scorpio/Cancer value their relationship and actively create or find opportunities to continually explore ideas and opinions – think weekends spent in mountain cabins and themed dinner parties. Deeply connected they rarely gets sick off each other and pine a little when separated by distance or time.
First signs of attraction & compatibility…
As a fixed sign Scorpio flirts by standing their own ground – people come to them not the other way around. Scorpios is intuitive and recognizes a like-soul in Cancer – on first meeting they set their charisma laser to “stun” – and when Cancer catches those soulful eyes – staring at them from across the room – connection is inevitable.
This is one attraction that doesn’t reduce Cancer to a bumbling idiot. The crab is a cardinal sign – normally they take charge but leadership won’t be possible when falling under Scorpio’s spell. They are, however, eloquent, intense and seeking to impress – there’s probably a bit of hypnotism going on here which diminishes the Crabs normal anxiety and klutziness. Under Scorpios spell they transform into a flirting swan.
The Cancer and Scorpio in relationships…
There’s something almost regal about Cancer and Scorpio relationships. Like medieval kings and Queens, they hold court and create an inner sanctum – only the loyal and true are given membership. Both seek prestige and work hard to achieve the kudos afforded to them through career and education opportunities – it’s not about the money – it’s about the respect.
Often, they work in the same environment perhaps as University lecturers, Health professional or Artists. An eccentric combo, they’ll own a breed of dog no one’s ever heard of and have a set of human skulls displayed in the kitchen Cabinet.
Cancer is clingier than Scorpio so there are moments of doubt and occasionally Scorpio becomes suffocated and lashes out. If they flip into destruction – get out of there quick. Cancer won’t let go and Scorpio becomes abusive. Try to save the Crab but watch out for an elevated level of co-dependency. Thank goodness this is a rare occurrence!
Where they may encounter turbulence…
Both can be possessive and jealous creatures – as water signs their darker emotions spill out like tidal waves – full of destruction and pain. They should try not to squeeze the lifeblood out of the relationship by viewing every external influence as a threat.
Cancer needs to understand that Scorpio has natural magnetism and will always attract others – this doesn’t mean the attraction is reciprocated. Scorpio must practice keeping their critical tongue in cheek and avoid withdrawing affection when they are miffed. Each enjoys a good grudge – if forgiveness is not practiced – it’s a one-way ticket to hell.
When Cancer and Scorpio fall in love…
There’s poetry and plenty of romance. Bless with inquisitive minds and a strong sense of aesthetics they visit museums, art Galleries and Heritage towns. Cancer cooks with love and Scorpio buys antique baubles for their new partner. There’s a sensuality around them that generates electricity.
They look radiant – pupils are large and wide – although sometimes the latter is due to absinthe. This is the couple who enjoy dressing each other, doing each other’s hair even exfoliating and squeezing blackheads. Don’t worry they won’t do the latter in public.
Cancer and Scorpio sexual compatibility…
Scorpio is a rather sick bunny when it comes to sex – often with a wild imagination and willingness to experiment. Cancer is quite conservative – seeking romance and intimacy. Sex together represents a huge learning curve – particularly for shy Cancer.
Fundamentally both are about trust – emotional, psychological and physical trust. If games are to be played Cancer requires safe words and Scorpio shouldn’t rush right into it. The electricity created between them creates a thirst for pushing boundaries but it must be done with love and respect.
Cancer and Scorpio marriage compatibility…
Marriage is good for soothing Cancer/Scorpios anxieties and as an ultimate declaration for these hopeless romantics. If the budget allows, a castle or French chateau are perfect venues – paired with a medieval feast.
Home is the center of their combined universe – they prefer to have people come to them rather than go out – expect Sunday roasts and exquisite dinner parties – Cancer cooks and Scorpio decorates They do tend to build a psychological moat around the marriage – we recommend visiting the outside world occasionally – just to keep abreast of things.
Children are wanted and loved – both are patient parents although is Scorpio less judgmental of lifestyle choices and will convince Cancer to lighten up when one of the brood turns out to be an accountant. Imagine a beautiful kooky family – slightly left-of center with warm hearts – just like the Addams Family.
