Cancer and Virgo Compatibility: Love, Sex & Relationships…

Cancer and Virgo love compatibility

Cancer and Virgo can make some sweet, sweet music together – as long as they undergo a bit of therapy and polish their communications skills. Both seek security and believe that success is 99% perspiration – they work hard at achieving goals and won’t rush into things without due consideration.

These signs take time to find each other – they date on and off – with Critical Virgo looking for perfection and Cancer, scared of giving into love. Its only when they realize the best memories have been built around each other that commitment and wedding bells become conversation starters.

Decoding Cancer and Virgo friendships…

Funny creatures – both are under the illusion they’re sane and it’s the rest of the world that has gone mad – they sometimes form a “us against them” friendship where protection each other’s dreams and ambitions is a number one priority. Friends are always surprised when Virgo suddenly leaves a steady 20-year job to become an interpretive dancer – but not Cancer who has known and nurtured their friends’ secret desire for decades.

Cancer-Virgo friendship

This friendship is often forged in times of adversary – believe it or not sickness, natural disasters and even death can bring them together – it’s amazing how many Cancer/Virgos meet at funerals. It’s because both are rescuers and very good in a crisis – Cancer provides emotional support whilst Virgo works out the practicalities of dealing with challenging situations.

They are serious insects and worrywarts so need to take time away from each other to avoid permanent gloom and doom or ensure there are some light-hearted Sagittarians in their friendship group. Good in a crisis but a bit flat when everything’s coming up roses.

First signs of attraction & compatibility…

Nervous Nellie – Cancer blushes, giggles and trips over their words. It’s the sort of situation where the crab blurts out a sleazy line – “If I told you, you had a beautiful body would you hold it against me?” – and wakes up the next day in cringe-mode. They could blow all chances of getting a date out of highly critical Virgo in the first five minutes of meeting – and too many nerve calming drinks takes them straight to sleaze-land with the door shut firmly in their face.

First signs of attraction

However, when Cancer does manage to practice restraint – Virgo is drawn to their sweetness and genuine nature – Cancer is also an excellent listener and adept at extracting personal confessions by not interrupting and asking the right questions.

When Attracted to a Crab, Virgo morphs into a love-struck school girl – all oohs and aahs. They find it “Totally Awesome” that Cancer likes peanut butter and discovering a common interest in Tupperware is labelled “Surreal”. Like a train-wreck Friends are unable to look away when the normally straight-laced Virgo comes undone.

The Cancer and Virgo in relationships…

Cancer is the feely-touchy partner and far more emotional than Virgo which is okay – as long as Virgo doesn’t withhold affection as a form of psychological punishment. Cancer is a water element sign – they need time to process reactions and responses and often open a sentence with “We need to talk”. Virgo is the earth element – practical and analytical – they lead with the head and are likely to start a sentence with, “These are the facts…”. There’s bound to be frustration when it comes to decision making – expect tears from Cancer and sulkiness from Virgo.

Close couple

When this couple irons out most of their relationship wrinkles there’s respect for the things they do well together. Both are conservative and seek security and advancement through hard work. These shared values create an industrious pair who tirelessly research the next step in their partnership– whether it be buying a house or a dog. Milestones are carefully planned and talk of superannuation and retirement funds occurs very early in the relationship.

Where they may encounter turbulence…

They can emotionally drain each other. Virgo is somewhere on the Woody Allen scale of hypochondria and sees every freckle as a stage four melanoma whilst Cancer doesn’t want life lived around Doctors’ appointments and predicting whether next Tuesday feels like the flu.

Love troubles

Cancer worries about security, trust and whether Virgo loves them enough – Virgo would rather discuss the amount of bran in their diet. These two need a good counsellor to keep the neurosis in check and to stop them developing co-dependent depression.

When Cancer and Virgo fall in love…

Neither falls in love easily – Virgo often mistakes love for illness – they keep their emotions under such tight control that stomach issues and migraines do develop. Cancer takes time to fathom Virgo out and suspects mind games are being played. Moments of fabulousness happen when they stop overanalyzing and purely enjoy each others’ company – often through physical activities – dancing, sport and yoga.

Love hearts

Cancer is a cardinal zodiac sign – meaning they like to guide and direct the romance – once things heat up many dates are Crab generated – candle lit dinners and weekends spent in rustic B&Bs. At this stage Virgo lets Cancer take the lead – as a mutable zodiac sign they are happy for others to initiate – especially when it comes to such unfamiliar territory as romance.

Cancer and Virgo sexual compatibility…

Virgo may look and act like an ice Queen/King – however if Cancer manages to thaw them with candles, music and words of passion there’s a firecracker just waiting to explode. Neither are into gymnastics or Tantric Marathons – instead they seek intimacy and genuine connection.

Sensual experience

Touching and kissing are important and the only place – other than the bedroom – where Cancer/Virgo freakiness occurs – is in Oceans, spas and bubble baths – it’s a natural element for Cancer and perfect for Virgos need to feel clean all the time.

Cancer and Virgo marriage compatibility…

Both are homebodies although Virgo is a neat freak to the extreme and probably has had therapy for OCD. Virgo/Cancer start building their nest not long after love is declared. To them, a home is at the heart of any relationship – although Virgo wants everything new and modern whilst Cancer opts for warm and rustic. Compromise is required.

Getting married

Cancer is likely to pop the question in a romantic and tear-filled occasion with a diamond in champagne. The wedding is formal – a church ceremony, lots of long stemmed roses and white satin dresses are on the cards. Children follow soon after although if it’s a Virgo pregnancy expect everything from morning sickness to Shingles.

A Cancer/Virgo family is happy, healthy and a little overprotected. This couple really do put children at the center of their universe and provide them with values designed to make a positive imprint upon the world.

Tender and passionate.
