Are Sagittarius and Cancer Compatible?
As things between the two of them progress into dating, they may look at their future and wonder what’s ahead. In most cases, this is compatibility that has a poor outcome. We will discuss below how things can change.
Sagittarius is known to have a powerful personality. When they speak, they are straightforward 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 very sensitive sign in Cancer. When they are criticized, they really start to take it to heart. When it comes to this couple, if/when the Sagittarian shows insensitivity towards their partner, it can be pretty 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 they have in common could make this relationship work.
How Are Sagittarius and Cancer in Love?
The perfect analogy for this couple would be mixing water and oil together.
Sagittarius is the type of person that really enjoys being independent in life and being able to go out to have fun with their friends and socialize. On the other hand, the Cancerian really likes to spend a lot of time with their partner and staying home. Their social circle is usually smaller.
The spirited personality of a Sagittarius might not fit in with what exactly what their partner is looking for. Cancer puts a lot of importance on their emotional bonds and family ties. This could very well be something that the Sag might consider a burden if the relationship is still in its infancy stage. If they haven’t fallen in love with their partner yet or aren’t sure they are ready to commit to them, they can become very flighty when their independence could be at risk.
Sagittarians are the type 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.
Two important points need to be worked on for this couple to make it for a long-term relationship.
The crab really needs to view criticism as constructive feedback. This means that when they get into an argument or a discussion with their partner about criticism directed at them, they have to make sure they’re not always on the defensive side of things. They really need to listen to their partner, take what they’re saying, and listen to it objectively.
On the other side of things, the Archer 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 present them in a way that will not upset their partner.
Although, as we say, any situation can be made into a good relationship with a lot of love, understanding, trust, and communication. Just sometimes, some combinations need more work than others.

What You Will Learn:
Experts Discuss This Couple:
Melissa: The travels of the Archer don’t leave much time for the Crab’s necessary attention.
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 a 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 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, and 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 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 Cancer’s 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 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 on 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
When love is developed between the two, the relationship can become excellent. Still, without love, it can become boring for both of them. To make a good couple, both partners have to respect one another. A Cancer man is intellectual, which makes him respected by others, and he tries to avoid anything harmful to him or others. The Sagittarius woman enjoys learning about this man and is his ideal partner. She needs to be less carefree to stabilize and fill the relationship with love.
How to Be Successful in This Relationship
Laugh with each other, not at each other.
Spontaneity, impulsiveness, and your tendency to be openly truthful are certainly qualities in you that he worries about. He doesn’t understand how you can put so much energy into having fun, but he will join in. Try to avoid jests and jokes with him at the center, and he will do the same for you. Over time, there can be deep trust and understanding between you and him, but you’ll have to work on the relationship together and do it before things get too serious. If you’re already involved with Cancer, immediately start attempting to gain his trust; everything else will follow.
Reconcile your different approaches to finances.
Although he can be funny and charming, he is also serious – especially when it comes to money. Extravagance and speculation are things that he’s really cautious about. In business, the two of you could be very happy and benefit from your different attitudes, but this could be a major obstacle in a romantic relationship. He will, however, come to trust you fairly quickly, and will loosen up his rigid stance about things in time.
Adjust your behaviors for his emotions.
You may have to adjust your behaviors and attitudes in order to cope with a Cancer’s changing moods and powerful emotions. He’s a very sensitive person, and he’s protective. He’s driven to protect you, but he’s basically an introvert and tries to protect himself from heartbreak.
Sagittarius Man and Cancer Woman

Cancer & Sagittarius Friendship
You can bring out the best in each other and make each other shine.
For The Crab:
If you sense sincerity, even the Sag tendency to throw word weapons around carelessly can float right over you. If you sense insincerity, all the words in the world won’t make this friendship work.
For The Archer:
You are dramatic…that’s what fire signs are all about. And when your fire is growing dim, they are there, always forever, ready to nurture, dote and take care of you. Just make sure you thank them and appreciate them. That’s what they really want…your acknowledgment.
Sagittarius & Cancer Relationship
For The Crab:
On a surface level, there are such differences between you two it can seem close to impossible. But, they desperately need to feel understood, and they love having someplace safe to ‘come home to.’ If you can keep their boundaries in mind..and stay within them…with some work, this can be an experience and a half.
For The Archer:
You talk first, think later. That can hit them in some vulnerable spots since they read meaning into every word and sometimes..read too much into them. If you give them plenty of love, however, they can keep up with your style and activity level. Make the differences work.
As a couple, you may find yourselves sitting on the fence a lot as to whether or not to buy a bus ticket, a car, or a carpet. Joint decisions will not come easy.
You will both want to make this relationship work so it should go a long way.
A very optimistic couple that will always look on the bright side of life.
