Cancer Woman Capricorn Man
The Cancer woman and Capricorn man are known as the mother and father of the zodiac – so surely this couple can create a loving, stable relationship, no? Yes they can, initially, but it’s not without its problems.
Like most opposite sign matches, the Cancer woman and Capricorn man are initially drawn to each other because each senses that they are missing something the other provides. The Capricorn man is a strong, ambitious and determined man, but he is emotionally cool and is missing the depth of emotions that the Cancer woman has. The Cancer woman is a deeply caring, nurturing and loving woman, but she is missing the practical groundedness the Capricorn man has. Cancer woman Capricorn man compatibility is strong to begin with, for these reasons.
This is an earth/water sign match, which are usually tender and passionate. In terms of sexual compatibility, the Cancer woman’s romantic nature warms up the heart of the Capricorn man, and gives him the confidence to release his inner sensuality. This is a relationship built on fidelity and trust, with neither partner likely to stray, and it has quite a serious, sober edge to it. Cancer woman Capricorn man compatibility is all about creating the archetypal happy family life – even if they have to work hard to do so.
And they do work hard at building that life. The Capricorn man’s contribution will be through a traditional head of the family, breadwinner role. He takes his responsibility very seriously indeed, and will be committed to his career not for his own benefit but for his loved ones. The Cancer woman, whether she works outside the home or not, will be the principal homemaker in this relationship, but that’s just how she likes it, and she will have free reign to create the family home of her dreams. Cancer woman Capricorn man compatibility works very well in this traditional sense.
However, sooner or later, the Cancer woman will tire of the Capricorn man’s devotion to work, even though she knows why he’s doing it. She will start to demand that he spends more time with his family, and the Capricorn man will feel unfairly put upon – he can’t be in two places at once. Eventually too, the Capricorn man will tire of his Cancer woman’s ever changing moods. He is emotionally stable himself, and although he has tremendous patience, he will become irritated at now knowing what kind of mood awaits him at home. The cracks in Cancer woman Capricorn man compatibility may take years to set in, but set in they will.
And then it will be up to this couple to find a way through the mud which an earth and water sign match can sometimes create. Fortunately, both of these partners belong to cardinal signs. Where they truly love one another, both will be aware of the need to take action to get them out of their joint rut, and together, with the Capricorn man’s wisdom and the Cancer woman’s heart, they are often able to chart such a course. Cancer woman Capricorn man compatibility can survive the long term, but only if both partners recognize the problems and come together to solve them.
Cancer Woman and Capricorn Man Compatibility
This is a classic combination of a protective strong male (he is either fatherly or, if living in his shadow, a needy little boy) whose mate plays the role of daughter or mother depending on what else is going on. These two are the greatest “rescuers” (euphemism for suckers) in the zodiac. They fit together even better than most opposites and are likely to stick it out through thick and thin because they worship the marital role … fanatically. This is the couple we vote “Most Likely to Call Each Other Mommy and Daddy” or to have a bumper sticker proudly proclaiming “”We are Family” as if that was some kind of Nobel laureate area or major justification for their existence. If this makes your heart skip a beat, come on along for the ride. You can be the “Baby On Board”.
How to Attract a Capricorn Man as a Cancer Woman
Your general fretfulness combined with your uncanny ability to calculate advantages is the winning formula. The former will make him swoon with desire while the latter will take him out at the knees. Finally, you’ll think, here is a real man: strong, silent, and loaded with goodies. Why, he even embraces the idea of being a father someday, so tell him what a good one you think he’ll make.
How to Attract a Cancer Woman as a Capricorn Man
Dry her tears, show sympathy for her seemingly endless and overwhelming problems (like the endless worries of chewing gum and walking at the same time). Really, this is a permanently distressed damsel just looking for a kind shoulder who in return offers an incongruously serene feminine energy like a drink of moonlight. Do a classic courtship, My Good Man. Show interest in her family and be sure to ask her father for her hand in marriage. Be especially nice to her mother because she‘s going to live with you some day.
Degree of Romance
These two are a dream come true of romantic illusions for one another so well do they play their gender roles. He is Mr. Responsibility. She is Ms Dependent. He WANTS to play the role of Protector and Provider. In fact, he’s been scouring the ends of the earth looking for someone who will LET him be more of a man. He is utterly enchanted by this moonlight creature who clings to him in gratitude. They will have incredibly romantic moments after every major thing he does for her or gives her.
Degree of Passion
Passion is not really their thing, or rather not her thing. She will tend to try and make him feel guilty (“irresponsible” or “out of control”) for any outbreaks of fire in the belly.
Degree of Friendship
Two marriages which personify the classic Cancer-Capricorn model are Ronald “Daddy” and Nancy “Mommy” Reagan — and Brangelina. Were they, are they, friends? You be the judge. They are more bonded and co-dependent than friends could ever be.
Degree of Marriage
Really excellent. Best in the zodiac. They are both old fashioned and believe in marriage, probably both coming from failed families that left them craving what they think a family is. And for heaven’s sake, a Cancer woman wants nothing to do with risky co-habitation or financially undependable love affairs. After all, marriage is the biggest business deal she’ll ever make. She wants a gigantic rock to cement the partnership, too!
Progression of Relationship
He will have to move slow and steady to assuage her rather neurotic fears. Does he REALLY love her? Will he mention the “M” word first, or does she have to? Will he understand how insecure she feels until she gets that ring on her finger? Will be pick a big enough ring? Will he favor an evening wedding with tails? Will he hurt her like [insert her exes here]? You get the drift. And this is on the first date!
