Cancer and Scorpio Compatibility

Cancer & Scorpio / Scorpio / Scorpio Compatibility

Zodiac Sign Cancer

When Cancer and Scorpio come together, the resulting relationship brings together two Signs of great emotional depth. Signs such as these often combine well, each partner’s strengths balancing the other’s weaknesses. These Signs have a strong sexual attraction, and when they are together the temperature in the room tends to rise! Cancer and Scorpio have a great deal in common which will keep their relationship strong.

Cancer and Scorpio enjoy working together toward acquisition and create a comfortable living space: Cancer wants security and Scorpio wants power. Both of these Signs are about domestic goods and resources, including stocks, bonds and inheritances. They are both passionate and deeply emotionally touched by all aspects of life. They complement each other because Cancer and Scorpio are both concerned with the home and both have fierce loyalty to the family group.

The Moon rules Cancer and Scorpio is ruled by Mars and Pluto. This combination is very intense, thanks to Pluto’s influence, but it’s a good balance of masculine and feminine energy. The two Signs coming together form the basic foundation of human relationships — The Moon’s nurturing love and Mars’ passion. The Moon and Mars go well together; The Moon is about growth and rebirth, and Mars is about the passion of romance. Scorpio is smoldering and intense, and Cancer is attracted to this intensity; in turn, Scorpio enjoys the adoration inherent in Moon-ruled Cancer.

Cancer and Scorpio are both Water Signs. Both are very deep Signs and like the ocean, you can never really see the bottom. Scorpio and Cancer emotionally draw further and further into themselves, then suddenly roar back with intimidating force. Cancer and Scorpio are strongly loyal to each other, a product of their mutual desire for emotional security. But while Cancer is fixated on the family and home Scorpio is more focused on the undercurrents of life. Scorpio can show Cancer beyond the literal surface, while Cancer can teach Scorpio not to fear their emotions. Additionally, Scorpio appreciates the Cancerian practicality and Cancer enjoys Scorpio’s jealousy it proves that Scorpio really loves and cherishes them.

Cancer is a Cardinal Sign and Scorpio is a Fixed Sign. Once they have a common wish, it will be realized due to their efforts. However, if their opinions clash, look out! Cancer will be the first to instigate an argument and Scorpio the last to finish it. It often appears that Cancer will get its own way and be the dominant partner, but that isn’t always the actual conclusion. Sometimes Scorpio won’t even agree to disagree, although they might pretend to give in. Both partners are not beyond using emotional manipulation to get revenge. It’s important for these partners to discuss what is truly important to them so they can reach an equitable compromise. Once Scorpio and Cancer learn to trust one another and believe in each other, they are a pair that can achieve almost anything through sheer determination. The relationship will only fail if the two partners truly cannot overcome their opinionated, stubborn sides.

The best aspect of the Cancer-Scorpio relationship is their powerful teamwork when they agree on their goals. When Cancer realizes that Scorpio is there for the long haul and that the partnership is emotionally productive, this relationship can blossom. Their mutual determination makes theirs a relationship of formidable strength.

    I’m a Scorpio with Leo as my ascendant and moon sign. I do find it difficult sometimes to balance my light and dark sides of my personality at times, possessive, jealous and passionate I’m most certainly am, but would not lower my dignity/integrity by showing these emotions in public- I would rather walk away from them/cut them out of my life instead of showing my true feelings. At least it confirms what I always thought all along. I am friendly/kind by nature, but at the same time don’t let anyone get too close to me either.

    At times it seems that I’m ‘acting’or’living a lie’ at most times in public (Leo side coming out again :)) with people I deal with, while my Scorpio side prefers to hide unseen in the darkness watching, observing and is drawn to the dark side of things/people/life.

    I find it interesting I’m scorpio/Taurus, my opposite, and before I found I chose a tat of a scorpion crushing zodiacs but leaving Taurus alone, slipping my scorpions grip. For no particular reason, but did know it was my opposite, didn’t know it was my rising…

    Scorpio sun/scorpio raising – is soooo true in sooo many ways – and with 2 Scorpio parnets had a crazy childhood – I have the same cool blond hair/blue eye looks as Grace K., and I’m always on the lookout for the stange and slightly dangerous so far it’s all been very intersting – and I love that word “insidisousily” perhaps we are just more self-protective then the Leo – who always has to be in the “spotlight” – we prefer to play in the dark!!!

    I found this post to be very interesting. I am an identical twin, so we both have the same astrological chart except for our rising sign — mine is in aires and hers is in Taurus. It’s interesting how we come across to people. I am by far more assertive and confrontative, energetic, and mischievous, and she is quieter, calmer, stubborn, and very security conscious. But, we pretty much think alike and have the same values. I am so fascinated by this.
