Are Libra and Cancer Compatible?
As these two start to get to know each other and start dating, they might find that they are at odds with each other occasionally. The compatibility between these two is usually considered low. That’s assuming that nothing is done to bridge the gap to make things work.
It will seem at first like they’ll get along really well in a relationship since both of these signs like to have a connection that has a lot of harmony and peace within it and balance. Hence, everything is equal between the two of them.
As time passes, despite their common traits, they may realize that they have some pretty big differences that could be detrimental to their relationship.
Libra is definitely a sign that likes to go out and have a lot of fun. They want to meet new people and enjoy socializing. Cancer is more of the homebody type, enjoys having a tighter circle of friends, and likes to spend a lot of time at home.
The crab might feel as though their partner is a little cold regarding their feelings, and on the other side of things, the Libra might get bored or a little fed up with cancer.
How Are Libra and Cancer in Love?
On an elemental surface, you’re looking at an air sign mixing with a water sign, which usually doesn’t amount to much.
They will find little rapport between the two, and many of their encounters with each other will be on the cooler side of things.
The Libra who really wants more balance and stability in their relationship will have a hard time with how their lover has the tendency to have big mood swings. They would rather be in a relationship that is more about agreeing than arguing.
On the other hand, the Cancerian is very emotional, and they would probably sooner rather than later dismiss Libra’s insincere flirtation when it comes to love. They are looking for someone who is vocal about their relationship and love. They always want to know where they stand with their partner.
As with all relationships, even if the outcome looks as though it’s bad, sometimes you can fix things just by making adjustments.
When it comes to these two, the crab really needs to understand that they have to take control of their emotional side. Their partner will not have any patience when it comes to putting up with the mood swings. So they need to dial things back a little but still find a way to communicate their feelings. They also have to listen to their partner since the scales love to give advice and don’t like when somebody ignores what they suggest.
Librans, on the other side of things, might have to take a little step back from the social side of life. As well as dedicate more of their time to their partner and relationship. They don’t have to give everything up, but they have to ensure that their partner knows they are cared for and loved. Cancer really needs to have that confirmation and to be able to spend time with their partner.
If both of them can work on those two things, then there is a chance that they could have a future together.

What You Will Learn:
Experts Discuss This Couple:
Melissa: Libra’s high-falutin’ social needs will never be understood (or able to be supported) by the stay-at-home Crab.
Celia: Libra’s logical and analytical approach to problems doesn’t take into account your feelings.
Jenn: The Libra can very judgmental and often likes to criticize and with your sensitivity, you may feel constantly hurt by the Libra’s words and actions. The Libra also tends to be quite outgoing and constantly likes to be around people while you are more of a shy loner type. This can cause even more friction in this relationship and often leave you feeling inadequate as Libra’s partner. The Libra will have to spend a considerable amount of time catering to your needs to make this one a success.
Lidia: This relationship can be a little too up and down and as time moves on, it will end up being more downs than ups, unfortunately! You both have high expectations to start off with, yet this can be lost by the Libra’s need to keep on getting better and better. For a Cancer, this can be misinterpreted as rejection and the Libra going off to find another mate! Situations should not turn that dire overnight, so as long as Libra can commit themselves a bit and Cancer learns to relax. You can both be so wrapped in your individual needs that you forget about each other and all of the important parts of a relationship.
Although this all sounds like work, and it is, you can make it out on the other side and have a wonderful long-term commitment to each other, as long as you remain open to pretending all is well and communicating when you feel you are drawing near to your limits.
Laura: A Cancer and Libra couple will love the cozy feeling they get when they’re alone together. Neither wants conflict and both strive for total harmony. If Cancer also doesn’t try to hinder Libra’s natural desire to socialize, these two will get along even better. Libra is easily able to pull Cancer out of its shell, making Cancer a much more evolved person all around.
Tracy: Libra and Cancer may have a few things in common and some astrologers suggest Cancer may not be emotionally suited to cope with Libra’s roving eye.
Heidi: Libra can appear somewhat detached at times and this doesn’t sit well with Cancer who needs to feel secure in a relationship. Cancer’s temperament and somewhat possessiveness bothers Libra and Libra’s somewhat extravagant spending disturbs Cancer. A rocky road for these two.
Keley: Libra and Cancer will get along famously if Libra curbs his or her tendency to be over-analytical. Cancer will appreciate the loving and affectionate gestures of Libra, and return them in kind.
Marcus: Challenging at best: but with perseverance and patience there are huge rewards for these two. Often with time, a Twin and a fussy Virgo will find that mutual humor will carry them through. Both signs are emotional, empathic, and understanding.
David: Intellectual Libra and emotional Cancer aren’t an intuitive mix. However, Cancer’s domestic streak and Libra’s artistic sensibilities can mesh – imagine the two decorating a house together. If Libra doesn’t pull back emotionally, it can work.

How to Be Successful in This Relationship
Be sensitive to his feelings.
You can moderate many of his troublesome characteristics by putting more effort into being sensitive to his feelings. He’s basically self-centered, and because of your constant probing and analysis of the world outside of you, it’s likely that you’ll tend to overlook the cues or not realize the importance of one’s feelings when making a logical decision.
Stay on good terms with his family and mother.
These men are usually devoted to their families, especially their mothers. If you can charm her, he’s yours. Even at that, you may feel like you’re competing with her until your care and affection displaces hers in his mind; and he will take plenty of time to change his inner world.
Try to help him avoid being possessive.
You’re likely to find out before too long that he can be quite possessive, and even jealous. You may feel that he’s stifling your social life, your career, or even your creativity before very long, and this does not sit well with your freewheeling, Airy nature. Make sure to include him in your activities with your friends; his imagination and pessimism might take a back seat to the truth if he can see it.
Libra Man and Cancer Woman
Both make up an air and water combination. Their compatibility is based on the fact that she has a supportive nature and he has a rational attitude. The carefree behavior of the Libra man makes the Cancer woman worry from time to time.

How to Be Successful in This Relationship
Learn to focus on what you have in common.
You both will have to focus on what you have in common, rather than your differences; both of you experience changing moods, but yours are more regular than his. Learning to be sensitive and affectionate when he is down, and his doing the same can add so much to the relationship that it can make up for many of the problems that you have with one another.
He will need to learn to be more sensitive.
He needs to be more sensitive to your desire to be a part of his life; without reassurance and sentimental gestures, it’s hard for you to trust him. His magical smile and the endless flow of charm may make you suspicious now and then, but if he puts some effort into making sure that you share his activities, especially those unrelated to work, your trust in him will blossom.
Constant nagging is the surest way to lose his interest. He doesn’t like to be hemmed in, and does not understand possessiveness. You’ll need to learn to show your concern and care for him without smothering him or causing him to feel like he’s being fattened up for the slaughter.
Cancer & Libra Friendship
A good mix on a lighthearted level, but you may find that discussing serious issues strain the friendship.
For The Crab:
You can–and often do–tolerate almost anything in a person if you feel secure in the friendship. While they seldom bring in the need for tolerance, they can be hard to pinpoint emotionally. Just enjoy what they offer.
For The Scales:
You bring something to your friend’s world that they might not ordinarily get on their own…a many-faceted perception. In return, they’ll take care of your every emotional need. Make sure you don’t inadvertently hurt them..stay on the up and up.
Libra & Cancer Relationship
For The Crab:
The world they wrap around them is beautiful, often poetic, and always pleasant. It isn’t necessarily profoundly deep, however, and it is that one factor that can do this partnership in. Accept that your partner must arrive at their own truths in their own way and just worry about your own.
For The Scales:
They can be demanding, and you do not like demands. They will wash all over your world if you let them, and your light and joyful approach to life doesn’t feel “safe” to them. But, the truth is that differences often make the best partnerships. It takes work..but it could be worth it.
An instant attraction may well be lost if one of you is in a doubting mood.
Good if you have money, a home, and carefree life. Disastrous if not.
Will work well if there are no pressures.
