About Cancer Love Matches
As the first water sign, the Cancer personality is a caring, sensitive person who shows consideration to others. You are a consummate romantic and idealist, wanting nothing less than undying love, fireworks, marriage and babies. It's very important to you to have a secure base from which you can succeed. Home and family are therefore especially important to you.
Cancer is a yin, or feminine sign, and the Moon, your ruling planet is the main feminine archetype. Juno, the goddess of marriage is connected with your sign, as well as Ceres, the mother goddess of fertility. A lot of Cancerian women also identify with Diana, goddess of the hunt, who was a virgin goddess, so there's part of you that wants to remain free to pursue your own interests.
Your innate fear of rejection usually prevents you from making the first move and you are guarded in love initially. Trust is a vital ingredient in your love relationships, but can take some time to build. You take relationships very seriously and expect complete support and adoration from your partner.
When a relationship ends, you can be unwilling to let go completely. You have a forgiving nature but will never forget, bringing old hurts up from time to time. You can be quite needy, dependent and overly protective.
The most compatible zodiac sign love matches for Cancer are generally considered to be Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio and Pisces. Polar opposite Capricorn provides defining structures and goals, which allow you to protect themselves.

Cancer Love Compatibility
Cancer and Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
Cancer love matches with Air signs are never easy. Part of the problem is that Air signs often perceive themselves to be intellectually superior. They also find it challenging to understand nuance, feelings, emotions, instinct and intuition, which are all very important to you.
Cancerians make decisions based on gut instinct. You relate to people from a deeper place, not just on a head level. Although you can educate Air signs about human emotion and the value of imagination and intuition, they won't necessarily be open to receiving guidance from you. It's best to help them evolve by example and inference.
Cancer and Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Most relationships between Water signs share a sympathetic bond and similar value system, and are mutually supportive. Chances are that you have quite a number of Water sign friends. You feel comfortable sharing your most intimate and personal feelings with eachother. Your Water sign firends can help you debrief and relax after a hard week.
Cancer and Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
Earth Signs can be great allies and help you feel secure. The best Cancer love matches are probably Taurus and Virgo. Virgos share your need to have time alone and respect your privacy. On the other hand, Virgo can be a bit nitpicky and critical at times.
Your opposite sign is Capricorn and you bring out both the best and the worst in each other. Capricorn tends to act as a kind of surrogate parent to you. They can help you attain goals and make you feel secure, but this can lead to a dependency situation on your part.
Cancer and Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
Fire signs will test you more than any other signs, but they are the people you can learn from the most.
You are highly imaginative and creative, but often struggle to step out of your comfort zone and acting independently. You don't like feeling exposed or vulnerable. Encounters with Fire signs can make you feel anxious due to the fact they are so full-on, but they can really help you come out of your shell.
