Cancer and Sagittarius Compatibility – Water + Fire

Are Sagittarius and Cancer compatible?

As things between the two of them progress into dating, they may look at their future and wonder whats ahead. In most cases this is a compatibility that has a poor outcome. We will discuss below how things can change.

The Sagittarius is known to have a very strong and powerful personality. When they speak they are very direct and honest, sometimes even becoming heartless. Sometimes the callousness can come out in an argument, other times they might not even know or realize that they’re being insensitive.

On the other side of the coin you’re dealing with a sign that is very sensitive in the Cancer. When they are criticized they really start to take it to heart. When it comes to this couple, when the Sagittarius shows insensitivity towards the cancer it can be quite damaging to the relationship.

Despite that fact these two really do actually have a connection on a physical level. The question comes down to what other things do they have in common that could make this relationship work.

How are Sagittarius and Cancer in love?

The perfect analogy for this couple would be like mixing water and oil together.

Sagittarius is the type of person that really enjoys to be independent in life, as well as to be able to go out to have fun with their friends and socialize. The cancer on the other hand really likes to be spending a lot of time with her partner and staying home. Their social circle is usually smaller.

The spirited personality of a Sagittarius might not fit in with what exactly cancer is looking for. Cancer really does put a lot of importance in their emotional bonds and family ties. This could very well be something that the Sagittarius might consider a burden if the relationship is still in its infancy stages. They can become very flighty when their independence could be in jeopardy, if they haven’t fallen in love with their partner already or are not totally sure they are ready to commit.

Sagittarius is the type of person that likes to live their life in the future, looking to the brighter days that are ahead. On the other hand cancer likes to live in the past.

There are two really important points that need to be worked on for this couple to make it for a long-term relationship .

Cancer really needs to view criticism, as constructive feedback. This means that when they get into an argument or a discussion with her partner that any criticism that is shot their way, they have to make sure they’re not on the defensive side of things all the time. They really need to listen to their partner and take what they’re saying, and listen to it from an objective point of view.

On the other side of things the Sagittarius really needs to work on the idea of being a little bit more tactful when it comes to presenting argumentative ideas to their partner.  They need to try and take the less blunt approach, be honest about their feelings but presented  them in a way that will not upset their partner.

Like what has been mentioned on the site before, with a lot of love, understanding, trust and communication any situation can be made into a good relationship. Just sometimes some combinations need more work than others.

Experts Discuss This Couple:

Melissa: The travels of the Archer don’t leave much time for the Crab’s necessary attentions.

Celia: The tactless, outspoken Sag will wound you with words frequently but you might learn to laugh instead of crying.

Jenn: You envy the self-confidence of the Sagittarius and are drawn to their optimism and care-free attitude. The Sagittarius in return is drawn to your caring and protective side. The two of you both share a wonderful sense of humor that keeps this relationship upbeat even through the roughest times. All you have to do is give the Sagittarius a little room to roam and keep making home the best place for the Sagittarius to return to.

Lidia: Unless you are looking for something short-term or based just around sex, you are not standing on very good ground with this relationship. Cancer needs to look after and care for those they are in love with, but this will not go down well with a Sagittarian, who tends to live life from one minute to the next, able to deal with their emotions themselves. Cancer takes on board all of the comments said to them and if Sagittarius is in one of those blunt to the point moods, this will cut very deeply on Cancer and cause a lot of long time hurt. If Cancer does learn to grow more of a thicker skin and allow comments to go over their head, you will stand a better chance of survival.

Sagittarians are hard people to change and only when they see how much someone else is suffering will they do this. Hearing from your partner doesn’t go down well, so this is by no means advice to put all of your cards on the table in this relationship!

Laura: Sagittarius loves freedom, Cancer loves togetherness, if these two can find common ground between their polar emotional make-ups, it could make for an interesting ride. Sensitive Cancer may find straight shooting Sagittarius quite a handful at first, however Sagittarius’s philosophical side can also be the bridge that Cancer yearns for. Cancer can be outgoing and quite enterprising when the occasion arises, which can impress Sagittarius.

Tracy: A Cancer and Sagittarius pairing can be difficult with two very different people with contrasting approaches to life. This is not generally a recommended match due to Sagittarius’ traditional lack of fidelity and classic Cancer’s emotional nature.

Heidi: Although there are good things in this relationship, there are also the not so good things. When it comes to imagination and stimulation, Sagittarius is actually good for Cancer. However, Sagittarius probably won’t give Cancer the security needed to be fully happy. If Cancer doesn’t allow Sagittarius to be completely adventurous, it could irritate Sagittarius. With a somewhat sharp tongue, Sagittarius can easily hurt Cancers feelings. Any long term relationship requires a lot of work and effort on both parts.

Keley: This relationship may work, but it has a couple of tricky areas. Cancer may find Sagittarius a little too fickle, and it has the tendency to bring out insecurity in Cancer. Sagittarius, on the other hand, may find Cancer a little too clingy.

Marcus:  Cancer is a real home-body, and loves a secure, sure thing. On the other hand Sagittarius is spontaneous, fun-loving and outgoing. We have the Crab who is awfully sensitive and a tends to be subject to mood swings that would make Jeckle and Hyde seem like Mary Poppins. And our light-hearted Archer who prides himself on being brutally frank, and always insists calling a spade a spade. There is a bright side here. Sagittarius will likely be able to get the Crab not to take himself so seriously. His humor and love of life is infectious, and this will cause Cancer to “lighten-up.” They share laughter, and real affection for each other.

David:  Cancer’s domestic desire to nourish, nurture and possess can clash with the innate Sagittarius desire to be free. The attraction may be there, but the differences are great. Beware.

Cancer Man and Sagittarius Woman

If feelings of love are developed between the two, it can make the relationship really amazing but without love, it can become bored of both of them. They should try to acknowledge each other as partners to make a good couple. A Cancer man has an intellectual mind which brings him respect from others and he always tries to avoid anything that can harm him or anyone else. The Sagittarius woman loves to learn about Cancer man and is a good match for him. Sagittarius woman should avoid her careless attitude to allow her man to fill the relationship with love and stabilize it.

Sagittarius Man and Cancer Woman

A relationship can be puzzling and odd for as long as both the members don’t try to comprehend each other and accept each other. Cancer woman is always of possessive nature and desires to get maximum attention of people that are important for her. On the other hand, Sagittarius man is quite frank with everyone and it can make her feel being ignored at times. Cancer woman can still enjoy a lot with Sagittarius man. Sagittarius man also feels at home with his lady and respects her a lot. Sagittarius is carefree and most of the relations don’t matter much to him while Cancer is sensitive and this difference in natures can be one of the conflicting things.
