What You Will Learn:
Experts Discuss This Couple:

Celia: If you can’t help loving this incompatible creature, flattery’s the only way forward. Leo’s stern lectures reduce you to a quivering heap.

Lidia: You can make this work long-term as long as you are willing to stop and re-assess your relationship and emotions every now and again. Much as this is going to sound like a chore to both of you, this is needed for you to survive. Leo can just go off and do his or her own thing, not caring about anyone else and this will upset and frustrate Cancer after a while. Arguments needs to be calmed quickly too, as you can both let your mouth run away with you when you are annoyed about something and this can cause a lot of emotional damage to Cancer, who cannot help but hold onto insults and bring them up at a later date!
You will have many good times though and it is easy for you to settle into each other and have a good giggle. Sexually, Leo’s passion will turn Cancer on quite quickly, and it won’t be long before you can swap roles within the bedroom and take it in turns to see who puts the next new gadget forward!

Leo’s positive and sure nature can be like a guiding light for Cancer, insulating the crab from darker moods. Leo will appreciate and admire the depth of Cancer’s emotions. Cancer will need to curb a tendency to put out Leo’s fire at inopportune times.

Cancer Man and Leo Woman
Cancer men and Leo women have very different personalities, as well as very different approaches to life, both professionally and personally. There is a lot of tension between them because the men find these women’s pride very irritating, and the women cannot stand their moodiness. To make this relationship work, both parties must be easygoing and sympathetic.
Cancer men are generally gentle and kind people with a lot of sophistication and emotion. Their determination and hard work make them successful. For men, success is achieving more money.
How to Be Successful in This Relationship
You can trust him to handle the finances.
You may have to learn to think more about building for the future than about enjoying the present; your man is determined to never suffer from poverty and is quite cautious about money matters. His financial acumen doesn’t interfere with his generosity toward his loved ones, and if you’re counted among them, you’ll be able to watch your assets, as well as the love between you, grow.
There is never a need for harsh words between you.
He is somewhat domineering, but he will never take a commanding tone with you, or from you. He gets what he wants through his sensitivity and sometimes by acting on his hunches; he’s far too protective of his feelings to risk acting in a way that will evoke another’s anger, especially yours. It will be easy to work with him, because you typically have a knack for avoiding the unnecessary, and he rarely takes the kind of risks for which a scolding is necessary.
Understand his moods change as often as the moon.
You’ll have to get used to his moods; they come and go with the phases of the Moon. It’s more likely that one of his bad moods can be relieved by affection than anything else, and your generous spirit and natural loyalty brings even more comfort into the equation in his eyes.
Leo Man and Cancer Woman
They make a very suitable couple. Each member’s nature complements the other. Appreciating her man positively and admiring him deeply gives him confidence. He always loves his lady since she gives him strength and perseverance. Sometimes, as a result of the possessiveness of the Cancer woman, she may irritate him. She likes his dominant personality because he makes her feel secure. The Leo man should avoid vanity, and his partner should lose her possessiveness. The relationship will be a really good one.
How to Be Successful in This Relationship
Give the devotion to get trust and protection.
Most of the men are possessive rather than jealous. They tend to want you to adore them and only them, and they feel that they’re being robbed of something valuable if they suspect a dalliance on your part. It’s unlikely that you’ll consciously cheat on your loveable partner, but telling him so won’t do much good. The proof, for him, lies in your devotion to him; once he’s assured of that, he will trust and protect you from then on.
Avoid being too sensitive and passive.
The physical chemistry between you can be very good, but you both have to be more moderate in your way of being romantic. You can easily become too sensitive and passive, while he will become too demanding and insensitive in his romantic overtures. Of course, if this leaves you cold, it makes him feel inadequate; a problem for one of you is a problem for both.
The lion needs attention and respect.
He requires and demands respect and attention. He needs to hear it, and the more he gets the more he wants. Unfortunately, if you give him this kind of affection too often, he’ll become more possessive and impulsive. Just sprinkle your conversations with a flattering word or two, that’s usually enough to solve the problem.
