Sagittarius Woman Cancer Man
How can a couple live happily together when one of them thrives on security and the other thrives on risk? That’s the problem to solve if Sagittarius woman and Cancer man compatibility is to stand a chance. For this interesting water/fire combination, what works in their favor is their shared good natures.
The Cancer man is seeking a stable home life and a partner for life. The Sagittarius woman isn’t…well, not “yet”, however old she is. She’s seeking fun and love, sure, but she’s not into the whole settling down thing. She’s horrified at the thought of domestic bliss, which on the other hand is exactly what her Cancer guy wants. So what to do? How can Sagittarius woman and Cancer man compatibility figure out a way forwards?
The answer lies perhaps in a bit of a timeshare relationship. Some of the best Sagittarius woman Cancer man relationships are those which travel around a lot – but while they’re in each place, they play happy families for a while. It works especially well for military couples who have no choice but to move around, but this relationship can work in other situations too. The key is that both partners get a little bit of what they want, and each adapts to the other.
There can be a lot of bickering between this couple though, although most of what they disagree about is the small stuff. Does that surprise you? Yep, even though the Cancer man wants to be at home and the Sagittarius woman wants freedom, it’s who takes out the trash which will keep this pair awake at night. The Cancer man sulks when he doesn’t get his own way, which will infuriate the straightforward Sagittarius woman. For her part, she can be very blunt and tactless, and won’t sugar coat her words, which can wound the sensitive Cancer guy. For the Sagittarius woman and Cancer man, compatibility may involve an awful lot of apologies.
Since both are essentially kind and loving people, however, resentment doesn’t simmer for long. They may row, but they’ll make it up quickly. The Sagittarius woman has an innately sunny disposition and an eternal optimism about her which soon brightens up her Cancer man’s horizons. Factor in that this is a water/fire relationship and you can add a good dose of sexual compatibility to the mix too. This can be a very steamy romance, especially if the couple do live at a distance or have to go without seeing each other for a long time. Sagittarius woman Cancer man compatibility is definitely the kind that is made stronger by absence.
When the relationship is going well and this couple are managing to balance the delicate mix of freedom and security, they are the best of friends. The Cancer guy must be careful not to try to smother his Sagittarius woman, though. He only means well, and wants to care for her, but she is a highly independent female and doesn’t like being fussed over. If she interprets his well meaning attentions as an attempt to deny her her freedom, she will quickly lose her temper, mystifying her Cancer guy who was only trying to make her happy.
Usually, however, this relationship seems to work, against the odds. For the Sagittarius woman and Cancer man, compatibility is ever surprising, but perhaps all the stronger for that.
Sagittarius Woman and Cancer Man Compatibility
This smokin’ hot combination is based on crude physics. People always want what they can’t have. Cancer wants a sure thing and Sagittarius wants to keep her options open. As witness Tom Cruise closing in on Katie Holmes, Cancer men are among the most possessive of the zodiac. Unlike the other two possessive signs we know, Taurus and Scorpio, Cancer tries to bind the person to them with egregious acts of kindness. Furthermore, Cancer men specialize in rescue operations – what better way to bind someone to you than to make them dependent? If the crafty little sidler acts indifferent, he’s only buying time to make his next move. He hides his feelings so as to avoid being rejected or humiliated.
Sagittarius, of course, will have none of any of this. She’s looking for a good life, adventure, freedom, potential and likely, sooner or later, greener pastures. Sooner if the crab gets really clingy. She will ignore his crab-by ways if she gets enough money to keep the good times rolling (his or hers or theirs). A long trip every now and then goes a long way towards keeping her on the domestic side, though it isn’t appealing to Cancer who wonders, “Why would anyone ever want to leave home?” Cancer likes to sleep in his own bed every night while Sag wonders what it’s like to watch an eclipse from Mongolia or slurp real onion soup at 3 am at Les Halles.
How to Attract a Cancer Man as a Sagittarius Woman
Ask him how he likes the food, if appropriate, or slip into the conversation the one line he’s been waiting his whole life to hear, “What’s your favorite restaurant?” Let him cook for you even if it means actually sitting down somewhere for a meal. Ask about his mother.
How to Attract a Sagittarius Woman as a Cancer Man
You have to offer her something without seeming to take something else away. This is tricky. Let me give you an example … “I would love to be the father of your children [after we take that ‘round the world cruise][you’re in such great shape, you’d be a size 10 again in no time][my mom will take care of them so we have plenty of time together]. You’ll probably meet because you look at her and think, “There’s an easy going, open, fun looking gal.” You’ve noticed how she talks to “everyone”. Imagine your surprise to find out she’s not easy, just friendly. And she most certainly on closer scrutiny does talk to “everyone”. Hmmm. Now it seems she really might be available and that wasn’t in the original game plan. That’s just your subconscious way of tricking yourself past your fear of rejection.
Degree of Romance
Neither sign is particularly interested in romance but they will go to great lengths to fuss over one another and nurture mutual well being. They are equallyconcerned that each stays healthy in mind, body and spirit.
Degree of Passion
There’s something about a Cancer man that totally personalizes Sagittarius’ passion. If there is one partner who can direct her arrow of desire, it is Cancer.
Degree of Friendship
These two share an innocence which makes them quite compatible below the obvious level of superficial differences. These signs are quincunx one another, different in element, personality and modality [as different as two signs can get]. Both deal with psychic complexities and Jungian archetypes and both have a guileless urge to simply know or “get” the human, eternal truths behind the complexities. Is this friendship? I think it’s something even better.
Degree of Marriage
There is a nice balance of energies that makes a compatible marriage. Both partners like peace and serenity, good will and win-win nurturing situations. They tend to bring out the very best in one another.
Progression of Relationship
Cancer keeps trying to get close and intimate while Sag is going for “getting to know you” fun and adventure. They quickly learn of each other’s good intentions and how to compromise gracefully. They really love and take care of one another and any children. Cancer makes sure they are safe and sound. Sagittarius makes sure they grow in the light.
