Libra Man and Cancer Woman
The union of a Libra man and a Cancer woman can be challenging. Two signs that live in opposite hemispheres and have drastically different personalities may want to do little with each other, socially or otherwise. A work relationship between the Libra man and a Cancer woman may not flourish exquisitely well because volatile situations do not settle well with the couple. However, when a Libra man and a Cancer woman come together in a social setting, they may be intrigued with each other’s lives that will further push them together to experience and understand each other.
A Libra man will see that a Cancer woman is very shy and probably spins thoughtful yarns to avoid revealing truth about herself or to test his personality. He may try and probe into her thoughts and understand what makes her so unique but if he tries incorrectly or too hard, he may just have to let her go for good. But, since a Libra man is charismatic to the T, it is highly unlikely that the Cancer woman will run away from him. Though she won’t see him at parties and get-togethers, she may invite him home and watch a couple of movies instead.
Highly unlikely to cancel such a date request, a Libra man can turn a wholly platonic friendship into a passionate relationship if he so desires. Since the Cancer woman will not take the initiative to do anything, it will be up to the Libra man to make magic happen.
Once together, a Libra man and a Cancer woman will enjoy being with each other. Though initially they may have a hard time adjusting to each other, they may take it up as a challenge and enjoy it more than detest it. If they overcome this phase of their lives, they will successfully go on to have a long, fulfilling relationship. A Cancer woman may not approve of his nature or his style of living, but eventually she will see that the Libra man is not a big fan of her lifestyle as well.
If the Libra man and the Cancer woman can sense discomfort in their relationship, they must try and overcome it. However, if they try too hard and too long, separation will become difficult and they may end up regretting being together.
They key to a successful relationship is communication. However, with a Libra man and a Cancer woman, communicating regularly and effectively can become a daunting task due to their ego’s and different personalities. If they keep their flaws in mind, they can work on it and help each other live happily. But, a Cancer woman does not take criticism too well thus, when a Libra man may make an effort to explain things to her, she may not understand them at all. She may take that lesson as an insult and swear to take revenge. This vicious thought cycle may disrupt their lives completely. But then again, they themselves hold the power to make or break their relationship.
Libra Man and Cancer Woman Compatibility
This is a bossy combo! Believe it or not, these two will fight for control more than practically any other pair. Their only salvation is to give the Cancer woman complete control of the household if there is to be any peace at all. But unfortunately, Libra seems to bring out the worst in Cancer.
How to Attract a Cancer Woman as a Libra Man
You can begin by promising her a beautiful home some day. Really, this lady is so bossy and hell-bent on domesticity, or whatever she equates with financial security, that you have to speak the language very plainly to get through to her. She is the type of woman likely to have an agenda. She knows the year she wants to marry, the year she wants to have kids, the year she wants to quit work, the year she wants to take her first trip to europe, etc., etc. It may appeal to you because you are somewhat like that yourself but perhaps you do not realize that her bossiness will know no end. Giving her what she wants will only encourage her to ask for more. Happily, she is not likely to step over into your territory if you give her control over the home.
How to Attract a Libra Man as a Cancer Woman
Show an interest in his career and convince him you will be an asset to his climb to the top. Demonstrate superior social skills. Show him you will make a good hostess for his clients and associates and talk about running a home like running a business. Engage in discussions of financial security unemotionally and without batting an eye. Underneath your stereotypical layers of domesticity, you’re a calculating machine, so show it. It’s the fast track to his information center.
Degree of Romance
You, dear little Cancer, will insist on every single accoutrement of romance. You will nag, whine, weep and manipulate until you get what you want on Mother’s Day, Valentine’s day, your birthday, major religious holidays, and will demand reciprocity after you put out for anything, such as entertaining his parents or granting a special favor in the boudoir. You strike a hard bargain.
Degree of Passion
Degree of Friendship
It’s more like business partners than friendship.
Degree of Marriage
This can be a successful first union if it focuses on the formulaic aspects of marriage such as building a career and furnishing a home. Because of Cancer’s proclivity to focus on the home, these may drift apart but not notice it for years. She will be happy as long as he buys her stuff for the house, and he will be happy as long as she stays in it. Maybe that’s more than most couples have.
Progression of Relationship
Cancer will design a series of channel locks which Libra will have to navigate successfully to round the bases and touch home. These steps are likely to include presents, weekend trips, dealing with the parents, a fur coat, whatever the traffic will allow … she‘ll keep raising the bar. The sheer logic of it has some appeal for Libra. She is speaking in an algebraic language that might be translated as follows: if you do this for me, I will do that for you. The Libra, being a Libra, will trot right along. The danger is that this quid pro quo approach will degenerate into manipulation. If it does, the Libra will turn very cold indeed. Though she will hardly notice, the end will not then be far.
