With an Aries and Cancer match, what we have here is a Cardinal Fire Sign, Aries, with a Cardinal Water Sign, Cancer. There is a saying in the zodiac about how water has a tendency to squash out fire, and this could pose a problem for this match. Another very popular saying however is that when fire and water collide, a whole lot of steam is generated. So this match has all of the signs of a steamy and passionate one, so long as both parties are able to put their egos aside, at least some of the time. Both signs are incredibly emotional, but Aries is in their fiery and passionate way, whereas Cancer wants to over analyze every feeling that comes their way. If they can find a way to work together on their emotional turbulence, this promises to be a steamy, and stimulating match indeed.

aries and cancer Compatibility - The Pros

Aries loves just how sensitive Cancer is, and with Aries being the sign of self and Cancer being the sign of home, this pair will go to the end of the world to protect each other. Cancer has the tough shell of the crab to protect the world of Aries in, and the Aries will be Cancer's ultimate knight in shining armor. Cancer also wants just what Aries wants, a happy home life, and so Aries will never complain about the home center that Cancer putters to every single day. The instinct of the watery Cancer will also help Aries get as far as they want, and wherever they want in life, which of course Aries really loves.

aries and cancer Compatibility - The Cons

When this match fights, it is going to get ugly and there will be a lot of hurt feelings. Cancer is among the most sensitive signs of the zodiac, and has a tendency to take everything personally. They are also known for being stubborn, and often attack with their own pinches, so when Aries points something out they don't like, they had better put their armor on because it is going to sting for them too. No matter what. Aries will be the first to bail on this union as a result, if there is any bailing to be had. So Cancer really needs to be careful in how they manage their feelings in conflict. Cancer also is not nearly as independent as Aries, and this could wear Aries down a bit. If Cancer doesn't get the cherished feelings they want in love, Cancer also could be the first to bail, Aries take heed here.

How to Maximize Your Zodiac Compatibility

The steam and the sparks that are the potential for this union is the element of this match that both sides need to focus on. The makeup sex will be as steamy as they want, if they both survive the battle that precedes it! Both of these signs are also Cardinal signs and also born leaders and initiators. Aries will never worry about who makes the first move, because Cancer is always right on that. In this pair, Cancer will be in charge of the emotional bliss of this union, and Aries will be in the lead when it comes to fighting off intruders and enemies. As both Cardinal signs though, they will need to take turns being the boss, and if both are willing to make this compromise, a long and happy life together is the likely outcome."
