The horoscope gives the Cancerian-Aquarian bond a very low compatibility.
This relationship is not easy, not even from the first moment. The Cancerian idealises the man she loves, which is why he can easily disappoint her. The Aquarian will hardly be her ideal man since he can treat her cruelly if she wants freedom.
He likes to dominate, but never let himself be dominated; he likes to make all the decisions and, therefore, will not let the Cancerian woman express herself freely.
The only way for this relationship to work is for the Aquarian to understand the Cancer woman's needs. <![endif]>
An Aquarius man and a Cancer woman is an extreme combination to begin with. Their pairing can be very challenging and they will realise their incompatibility as they progress deeper into the relationship.
The Aquarius man is a bit of a loner and this can leave the Cancer woman feeling dark and lonely.
An Aquarius man is more or less a spontaneous type. He could go out with a fixed idea of his destiny or he could decide on the spot.
He has an erratic mood and always wants to do something new and whatever the horizon has to offer. He is very interested in the future and is always exploring the future for better prospects.
On the other hand, a Cancer woman likes to have an idea of where she is going, the kind of people she will meet there and almost imagines the atmosphere of the place beforehand. She does not like erratic plans.
Familiarity is her forte and she always feels comfortable rooted in her past and in doing what is tried and tested. <![endif]>
Both Aquarius and Cancer follow different strokes and different rhythms.
A combination of Aquarius and Cancer does not look too promising at first. The couple doesn't have much in common. But if they are optimistic about their relationship, they will both realise that they can learn a lot from each other.
A Cancer woman is like a mother hen. She loves to create an emotionally secure
environment for her loved ones and also seeks warmth and comfort for herself.
The Aquarius man has better things to do in the world and does not care about home comforts. Both are very compassionate in their own fields.
A Cancer woman gives more importance to her loved ones while an Aquarius man gives more importance to the less privileged in the world. His loved ones will have to wait patiently for him.
This could often lead to unnecessary
misunderstandings and unhappiness between the two.
On the level of personal compatibility, the relationship may not be very happy. Even if they are very much suited to each other, it is the nature of their signs that will cause dissatisfaction with their partner.
A Cancer woman seeks the companionship of a man who is committed to her heart and soul, but an Aquarius man is not one to make compromises.
He is not one to verbalise his feelings of love. He is emotionally distant, and this can make the Cancer woman very unhappy. She looks for verbal expressions of love that he does not give openly.
He becomes annoyed with her mood swings and feels there is no need to continue to express his love for her.
If the couple can get their communication problems under control, they can thrive on the level of compatibility.
A Cancer woman takes time to undermine her own feelings for someone. While they take time to be sure about someone before dating, an Aquarius man has a more experimental approach to dating.
An Aquarius man respects strong opinions and tastes. But one thing they both have in common is the ability to change. Both of you, as a couple, can adapt to each other with genuine respect, and love can blossom between the two of you in this case. <![endif]>
An Aquarius man has a very unconventional nature which conflicts with the nature of the peace-loving Cancer woman.
While the Aquarius man's life will be booming with too much information and speed, a Cancer woman would prefer a subtle and empathetic state of mind.
If they have children and choose to start a family, then their contradictory attitudes will be wonderful for their children. While a Cancer woman will give her children a warm and comfortable family life, her Aquarius father will give them life without limits and freedom of choice.
However, both must be tolerant of each other's behaviour. If they fall in love, both will not want to end their relationship quickly.
While the Aquarius man will take it as a challenge to understand his partner and stabilise their lives, a Cancer woman will feel free in life with an Aquarius man. Once they form a strong bond; they will stay together forever. <![endif]>
A loving union of this couple can be emotionally unsettling between the two. While an Aquarius man is friendly but distant, a Cancer woman is self-protective but absorbing.
An Aquarius man would love to go to socially crowded
places. Places like trendy clubs, pubs with loud music and dancing excite him.
A Cancer woman prefers quieter places with her date, places where she can connect better. If she feels overwhelmed or upset, he may even end the date abruptly without being too sympathetic to her condition.
She, on the other hand, if she finds him too insensitive and irritated by her needs, will also check him off her list. A Cancer woman craves partners who are more sympathetic to her needs and moods. She will also open up to a man only after she feels emotionally secure with him.
Their date can be disastrous as a Cancer woman will want to talk about personal things like the Aquarius man's family and roots.
An Aquarius man may be offended by such conversations, as they are very private people. They prefer to talk about intellectual subjects such as the arts, space, science, politics and history. Such topics can take a Cancer woman out of her comfort zone. <![endif]>
A sexual relationship between an Aquarius man and a Cancer woman can be emotionally stressful and deeply unsatisfying for both.
A Cancer woman is capable of setting strong boundaries around herself and being very distant and cold if she wishes.
An Aquarius man, on the other hand, needs sex as a way to ventilate their highly energised bodies. They are innovative and always focused on making changes.
What a Cancer woman needs for sex is a gentler approach and a warm relationship.
An Aquarius man is completely incapable of making his partner feel warm and cuddly. He will have to have a gentler approach if he wants to enjoy his sex life with a Cancer woman.
However, if they allow their basic differences to slide, then both of them as a couple can have a fascinating sexual experience.
An Aquarius man cannot have routine and boring
sex. If they want theirs to be a success story, the Aquarius man will have to compromise in his innovative ways and a Cancer woman will have to enjoy sex without the need for emotional baggage attached.
A Cancer woman is someone she can trust, but in situations where she is afraid of her partner's aggressive reaction or of hurting her partner, she may sometimes tell a lie.
An Aquarius man may be stressed to share personal things, and this communication gap could lead to trust issues between the two of them.
A Cancer woman is not open to the idea that her Aquarius man is too liberal, and this could lead to mistrust issues.
Although they both do not lie, however, their different natures pose a threat to the future of their relationship as they do not trust each other. <![endif]>
The fundamental problem and one of the main problems in this relationship is the clinging and possessive behaviour of the Cancer woman. She loves to be at home and wants her partner to stay at home too. But an Aquarius man is free-spirited and difficult to place.
When under pressure, he becomes more distant and stressed. For an Aquarius man, the pressure of a verbal commitment is too much to handle. He will stay committed to someone who understands his needs for travel and socialising.
He will stay close to a woman who doesn't bother
him. Their history is like a delicate dance that must be handled with great care. But if the couple can find a way through their nature, they may end up in a pleasant and warm romance.
An Aquarius man, if necessary, can stabilise the emotional needs of his Cancer woman with his analytical mind and pragmatism.
A Cancer woman can nurture her man and provide warmth in the bedroom. If they both decide, then it is not so difficult to manage a lasting relationship. Theirs is a love that will grow over time once they accept each other's differences.
