Cancer Man and Capricorn Woman
What’s in store for a Cancer man and a Capricorn woman you ask? The answer depends on what the two individuals want from their relationship. If they are in it for the long haul, they will experience some tough times ahead but if they decide to take each day as it comes, without committing to anything, they might taste the pleasure and thrill of being in each other’s company. A Cancer man and Capricorn woman, fundamentally have different core values and beliefs. This makes the combination a tricky one because they will find that their ideologies and thinking patterns do not match at all.
Will the homebody, nurturing and loving Cancer man feel out of his element when he dates a Capricorn woman? He definitely will. The reason for his behavior is that his Capricorn partner will constantly be on the lookout for adventure and thrill while he will want to tuck in at home and spend his time where he is comfortable. Not only that, any activity that the Cancer man takes up will be toned down in terms of madness and craziness. However, the Capricorn woman will not find this appealing and will suggest alternatives that will not go down well with her man.
Whether the Capricorn woman will bring her Cancer man along on her adventurous expeditions is not known but there is definitely a possibility that her partner will refuse even if she asks. Since they will face a conflict of opinions on almost every aspect of their lives, they will constantly bicker and fight on issues that will tear their relationship apart.
In order to make this work, the Cancer man and the Capricorn woman will have to necessarily look at their relationship from an objective lens. After they do that, they will be equipped to understand what makes their relationship work or what makes it fragile. When the realization strikes them, they will handle their issues better and eventually help each other live a happy and peaceful life.
Cancer Man and Capricorn Woman Compatibility
This is a classic example of role reversal, and it can work beautifully. If there are children involved, the man may stay home and nurture the kids while the woman provides the income and discipline. Keep this in mind while dating. The Capricorn woman will definitely wear the pants, but in exchange the Cancer man will finally get the emotional stability he’s been looking for. Cancer men are very comforting and sensitive to others’ feelings, whereas a Capricorn woman is a hard-working business machine. These two — the Cancer man and Capricorn woman — need each other very badly.
How to Attract a Capricorn Woman as a Cancer Man
You might notice how hard-working the Capricorn woman is and provide some respite. You can say the 8 magic words, “Let me take you away from all this.” You might have to remind her to take meal breaks and to keep her mind off business for a few hours a day (even if she’s not working she will do whatever she does in a business-like manner). No matter how tough her facade, she is very shy and insecure. You know how to handle someone like that better than anyone. You have a soothing personality, Cancer, and you can take the edge off the cold, cruel world she lives in.
How to Attract a Cancer Man as a Capricorn Woman
You are probably not used to attracting anybody because you’re too busy at work. This is no exception. You will probably have to make the first move. You are not used to acknowledging your needs, preferring to maintain a stoic approach to life and relationships. If a Cancer man has caught your eye, it is likely because of his kindness and mercy, so why don’t you play a little bit to his sympathy? It won’t hurt to mention your long hours and to flash a few designer labels at him so he gets the idea that in exchange for his emotional support you can provide financially, at least for yourself — possibly for both of you. Once he starts to court you, I hope you will soften your business edge and give him encouragement because you are not the only one who is insecure sometimes.
Degree of Romance
A Cancer man will bring something very close to romance into the relationship. He will naturally tend to do such loving things as rubbing your shoulders or feet, offering to pick your kids up from school, detailing your car while you’re at a business meeting, and having dinner ready — at his home or yours — which is not exactly romantic, but it sure will be welcome. Cancer men are very thoughtful. They are always looking at you and yours needs and trying to anticipate them. And they do a pretty good job of it.
Degree of Passion
Passion is not exactly the first dish on the menu. Cancer can provide a lot of emotional intensity, but it is more like a pleasant ocean wave than a storm at sea. Cancer provides a soft, billowy pillow on which to rest your head, dear hard-working Capricorn. You can assume that he will passionately try to meet your every need — spoken and unspoken.
Degree of Friendship
These two can be dear friends because they learn to rely so much on each other. Together their pace is a little slower than the rest of the world and they are a little more solicitous of each other’s well-being. Cancer is known as the Great Rescuer of the zodiac, so dependable is his protective instinct. He represents a safe harbor for Capricorn. That’s the kind of friendship they have. He understands what she will not put into words for anybody, for any reason, at any time.
Degree of Marriage
As long as the role reversal works, this is a quintessential marriage.
Progression of Relationship
You haven’t been cared for until you’ve been cared for by a Cancer. The courtship is the same as anything he does — he will be solicitous of your feelings, he will pay attention to what you like and don’t like, he will do the best he can to please you, he will care for you in word and deed (that is to say demonstratively), he will notice your menu choices, check up on how your car is working, care sincerely about your kids, and listen patiently while you complain about your boss. You, Capricorn, who need no one, may find yourself really drawn to this caring person, and willing to see him much more frequently than you can ever imagine, until he grows on you like ivy on a brick wall.
