Are Cancer and Aquarius Compatible?
In most cases, when these two get together, they often make it to the dating phase and go no further. The compatibility between the two of them is considered low. Still, you have to realize that this is not a relationship that is truly impossible to make happen.
Right here, you’re dealing with two very stubborn and persistent signs. So if they want to make a relationship work, they can do that. The important thing is that they really need to take a chance on each other and get to know each other.
Even if there are differences between them, if they work together and put a lot of passion into the relationship, they may be able to iron out many differences.
How Are Aquarius and Cancer in Love?
This is a relationship where it seems like it’s two sides of a coin. On one side, you have Cancers that are pretty conservative and relatively fixed in their ways; they’re more of the homebody type. On the other side, the Aquarius like independence, and even in a relationship, they like to feel a little liberated at the same time.
This, in reality, can cause some issues between the two of them because the Aquarian might feel restricted in a relationship with this partner. On the other side of things, cancer might feel unstable with their partner. Both of these things can be a recipe for disaster.
The other thing to remember is that crabs love to have a lot of continuous attention on them and, at times, can be very demanding in a relationship. This is because they always want to feel like they are loved. In the eyes of the Aquarian, this can reduce the freedom they’re looking for, which might scare them off. That doesn’t mean they are looking for freedom to go out and be with anyone else; they just want some alone time.
As with all relationships, you have to look at the positive sides. Right here, we have two signs that are very faithful and loyal to each other and are both quite determined and stubborn to make things work if they want to.
By all accounts, this relationship, at its very nature, does not usually work out. But if there is excellent communication between them, the drive and a will to succeed, and most importantly, the love, then anything is possible for these two.

What You Will Learn:
Experts Discuss This Couple:
Melissa: The Water Bearer will only flood the Crab with insecurities. Passions will feel damp, too.
Celia: You never feel quite secure – Aquarius seems so emotionally detached Don’t try to lead or guide the Water Bearer – it can’t be done.
Jenn: You will probably find the Aquarius and their impatient and idealistic ways to be more than you can handle. You tend to be sensitive and vulnerable and it may be hard for the Aquarius to find excitement in this relationship. The Aquarius has a need for excitement that contradicts your domesticated ways. If the Aquarius can learn to settle down in the safe zone that you have to offer, the two of you can make a loving and adventurous relationship.
Lidia: This is probably not going to be the best of combinations as you will never be able to have that perfect picture without one of you giving up something of who you are and this will not go down well with either of you. You are just too different in so many areas to be able to have a long lasting, steady and reliable relationship. Cancer needs constant support and reassurance and the home is a very important place for this star sign to resign to. Where as Aquarius will refuse to be locked indoors watching each day pass by without having done anything of significance.
Aquarians are very open and loving people and this is not restricted to just their partner, a large part of Cancer will hate seeing affections given out willy-nilly, and over time Cancer will blow at seeing this constantly happen and the only way out will be for you to have your own lives as well as the one you share together.
Laura: The Aquarius and Cancer couple will likely be fascinated by each other initially, they both have a natural love of people and they share similar type of humor. However, when Aquarius wants to party and Cancer wants to stay home, they’ll need to find more common ground. If Cancer can indulge Aquarius a bit more socially, and if Aquarius can pass up a social outing, they could do well together.
Tracy: Cancer and Aquarius could quarrel as both may have conflicting tastes and ideas. Though it is an unadvisable match they could learn a lot from each other. Success could be gained if one partner is submissive and lets the other lead.
Heidi: This is a clash in personalities, with Aquarius being unpredictable and Cancer being cautious. Cancer appears warm and loving, while on the surface Aquarius tends to be cool and distant. The two will probably hurt each other’s feelings more than anything. There’s not much happening in this relationship unless, of course, each partner is willing to change their ways.
Keley: This relationship can be very difficult for both parties. Aquarius may find Cancer’s need for stability a bit constraining, and Cancer will find Aquarius’s airy fairy approach very annoying after a time.
Marcus: The brooding, emotional Crab will find Aquarius’s independent aloofness maddening. Cancers need attention and reassurance and lots of it, and even then they never quite feel all the way loved. The Aquarian on the other hand is better with groups than one on one intimacy. They are an are a sign and very hard to get out of the clouds and make them focus. These two are an unlikely pairing.
David: Warmth vs. detachment. Nurturing vs. coolness. Not a match by a long shot, though you never know when someone will defy the odds.
Aquarius Man and Cancer Woman
There is never an easy way for a Cancer woman and Aquarius Man to get along since one is Air and the other is Water. It is still possible for both of them to benefit from their mutual attraction. On the outside, he is calm, but on the inside, he is filled with a zest for life. He loves freedom and will not allow anyone to ban his or others’ independence. Although this is a good thing for her, it can sometimes conflict with her aspect of being possessive at times. A long-term relationship requires a lot of sacrifices and commitment from both, like a mother who sacrifices a lot for her child.
How to Be Successful in This Relationship
Encourage and help him find new adventures.
Most Aquarians who hold down regular jobs and do regular things lean more to the Saturn side of their dual planetary rulership, and they tend to feel like they’re stuck in a rut. It’s not easy to help him out of it, but if you encourage him to try something new in an affectionate way, he may break through that barrier and find a new jumping-off point for his experiments and adventures, and if you’re lucky, he’ll ask you to come along.
Be prepared for constant change.
These women have a tendency to “mother” their men; always coming up with their favorite treats, treating them with wisdom and compassion, and supporting their efforts to direct the course of their future. These guys tend to change their favorite treat suddenly and do not know what direction they want to go in. You’ll have to be very flexible to see to his needs because they might change at any moment.
Don’t depend on him 100% of the time.
He can be undependable. He will support you every step of the way if he cares about you, and do whatever he can to make you happy, but because of his often surprising or unconventional behavior, will often come up with results that are very different from what you might expect.
Cancer Man and Aquarius Woman
His lack of outgoingness is an issue for her. Aquarius women possess the opposite quality. The cancer men love to make money, while these ladies enjoy having fun without worrying about money. Aquarius women find it difficult to get along with crab men because of these basic differences. No matter how hard they try, their love life becomes a headache. A long-term relationship between them is very rare unless both are willing to work hard for it.
How to Be Successful in This Relationship
Don’t expect him to give up his traditional values.
If you’re interested in a Cancer, you need to understand that he is looking for a solid and stable relationship; one that is based on “traditional values.” It’s rare to find a Cancer who has an open approach to relationships, or is experimental, as you are. He can be quite a good provider, however, and will build quite a comfortable lifestyle for you, if you decide that this is the kind of lifestyle you want.
Don’t toss his stuff.
Don’t try to get him to let go of his attachment to the past. He’s a collector, but the things he keeps have to do with fond memories; he doesn’t bother so much with decorative items or conversation pieces. He uses these things as a refuge from the pressures in the world, while you tend to escape into the world of possibilities and the future. Show him some compassion, and mention your fondness for antiques while you’re at it.
Listen, even if you disagree.
Make sure you pay careful attention to him when he’s talking; sometimes he may feel like you’re drifting away, and it hurts him emotionally. When you’re talking to him, never start a sentence that you can’t finish. It will help him realize that you really do care.
Aquarius & Cancer Friendship
Your opposites could make you find each other very interesting and become the best of pals.
For The Crab:
They snap you out of a blue funk or a down mood with a jolt of lightning that you might not appreciate, but that will always be helpful. They’re different…they’re unpredictable…but they are undeniably fun.
For The Water-Bearer:
They know when you are blue. They pack an extra goodie in their lunch for you. They are always there for you. It comes with a price. However, they expect the same from you. Takes work..but it’s worth it.
Cancer and Aquarius Relationship
For The Crab:
They often don’t want to bother with the emotional components of Love. It’s not because they don’t “feel” the same thing…they just process it differently. That can prove troublesome. But anything can work if you really, really want it to. Don’t fence them in, or they’re gone in the blink of an eye.
For The Water-Bearer:
Opposites attract…so they say and you, and they are as opposite as they get. Always be upfront, and you’ll bypass a lot of problems. They are big, emotional softies once you get into their hearts. Like a friendship..this one requires work.
A good basis can be found for you pair as lovers provided neither of you wants or expects to be placed on a pedestal.
You may bond well yet each of you will need their own interests to keep this relationship alive long-term.
You may find that your opinions of each other in the short term are almost nonexistent as it will take a while to gain each other’s respect.
