A Cancer and Aries match is what many astrologers would call a situation of opposites attract. But where these two zodiac signs have many differences, they also have many common traits as well that bodes well for a long term match. We have the Cardinal Water Sign of Cancer paired with the Cardinal Fire Sign of Aries. This means there is both a lot of emotion and action in this union. They are both born leaders, and both very creative and intuitive. Where they may butt heads rests in their leadership traits, they both like to be the boss! Turn taking on that front is all this match needs to be one that creates spark and love for many years to come.

cancer and aries Compatibility - The Pros

In addition to both being Cardinal Signs, both Cancer and Aries are also very emotional, in their own unique ways. Where Cancer is sensitive and uses feeling words with almost every sentence, Aries is creative and passionate and excited about... everything. This is going to make for an exciting match indeed, and both of these signs are extremely protective about each other as well. Neither will take it well when the other is injured by others, and so Cancer and Aries will also always have each other's backs. Aries will really appreciate how open and emotional Cancer is, and Aries will never have to guess what page Cancer is on. Aries will also love the home and family life that Cancer is able to provide and nurture through the years. Cancer will adore the energy level of Aries, and how driven and motivated they are in the world. Cancer will always be proud of their Aries, and won't mind when Aries needs the spotlight, most of the time.

cancer and aries Compatibility - The Cons

Although both Cancer and Aries are emotional zodiac signs, they both express their emotions very differently. When it comes to love, Aries has a tendency to bottle things up, and this could frustrate out in the open Cancer. On the other hand, Cancer's emotional side may appear a little too sensitive for Aries on occasion, and this could lead to some temper flareups. Cancer also has a tendency to use their emotions to manipulate, and this is not something that will make Aries happy. Both are also born leaders and they need to be the boss of their domains. This will lead to some butting of the heads, and both Cancer and Aries will need to learn the art of compromise. If anyone will need to bend more than the other, it will be Cancer, or there could be fireworks from fiery Aries. Cancer doesn't like to do that, so this could pose a problem if the match isn't committed to making it work.

How to Maximize Your Zodiac Compatibility

There is a lot of leadership and strong personalities when Cancer and Aries match up. This is a great thing for both parties as the energy and desire to make things work is there on both counts. Both parties however will need to remember that one person can't be the boss all the time. The way to get past this is through compromise and cooperation. Turn taking in the leadership department will work well. As will both parties giving leadership over different domains in their relationship. In other words, if Cancer is the boss on the homefront and the domestic domain, maybe Cancer can give Aries the rein when it comes to activity and adventure planning and long stimulating conversations. When the pair works together, they will get things done by embracing their differences, and their commonalities!
