Cancer and Capricorn Love Compatibility

Cancer and Capricorn? Interesting combination... but also dangerous: Capricorn is Cancer's opposite sign in the zodiac, 180 degrees away.

Theoretically, you should match. But there is an "opposition" between your signs. Therefore, I'm going to tell you the strong and the weak points and let you decide. There are equal chances to succeed, as well as to fail.

You have much in common: Capricorn always feels misunderstood, and your main quality is to offer understanding and protection to the others. You both know how to follow your goals, which could lead to a lasting relationship if each of you finds the power to adjust to the other's wishes.

The Goat can make your dreams come true, because Capricorn is an Earth sign, and a very hardworking one. Water and Earth usually get along very well, but, of the three Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn), you are in opposition with this one: this is where the troubles could come from, because you are also very determined, meaning that neither of you gives up too easily. It would be better if you gave up in the end, because otherwise your Capricorn will isolate him/herself even more under his/her protective shell.

Neither of you is too extrovert: you'll have to work hard to get to his/her inner ego, to make him/her open up. But it is worth it: Capricorn has a great sense of humor and is very devoted, (s)he is capable of understanding you and among the few that will always try to do it.

Capricorn has the power to settle your sentimental life, but attention: (s)he can't offer as much love as an insecure Cancer needs, so, if you could refrain from being jealous and highly sentimental, everything would be perfect.

Your Capricorn is a very ambitious and career oriented native, so, if you can provide a happy home for him/her, where (s)he can unwind, you'll have a great advantage.

Capricorn is as economical as you are so there won't be financial problems. Capricorn likes holding a top position on the social ladder and (s)he'll do everything in his/her power for it. (S)He is even willing to take over where you feel you can't manage. Your need of (financial, emotional) security will be fulfilled by this partner who becomes the rock you need when waters swirl and you cannot stop them anymore.

Sexually, there will probably be a strong attraction between you two (opposite signs attract each other) and it will be an unforgettable experience, whether you stay together or not. But Caprcorn's realism and reserve could often be too much for you, dear Cancer, who are all soul and feelings.

Therefore, a Cancer-Capricorn combination would make for a rather unstable relationship and a risky marriage. But it is worth trying, at least on the account that everything forbidden tastes differently. If you stay together for a year, it means you can do it.
