Cancer and Capricorn Compatibility

Cancer, a cardinal water sign, and Capricorn, a cardinal earth sign. This isn’t a bad match and one where both can benefit greatly from one another, even though they are polar opposites. What this means is that they can offer a yin and yang type of balance. If they have more compatible signs in their birth chart, then the stronger the bond will be.


Cancer is a very loving and caring type of sign. They may come off cold to people they’re not comfortable with, but it’s because they guard themselves with their powerful shell – sometimes thin and fragile, so they take good care of it. They carry a lot of the weight of the world naturally, which can make them very moody and sensitive. Just like their water siblings, they are full of depth, sensitivity, they’re defensive and alluring in their own right. As a cardinal sign, they are natural leaders who find it effortless to move the masses. Unlike other cardinal signs, they would rather use emotions to motivate people. They are great at relating to others because they’re always so in tune with everything and everyone. They spend a lot of their energy giving their positive energy to others, so they will have extremely depressing lows when that energy isn’t reciprocated.

All of which may overwhelm others, who may not understand how to coax them out of their shells when they’re in hiding or guarding. When in love, they can be highly romantic and even very attached. They love hard, but it’s because they offer a type of love you only read about in fairytales and will expect the same in return. They will also naturally carry the burden of their partner, as well as their entire family. To keep them happy, they require a partner who can help carry the weight of the world with them – without them asking – and to be open with their emotions without limitations. Also, keep in mind that this is a sign who also like to hide their feelings when they’re really down, so coaxing them out of their high shells will take someone very special.


Capricorn is the most aggressive and flashiest of all the earth signs. They are also a cardinal sign, so leadership comes naturally to them. They are usually very wise and they take life as a great adventure – experiencing life to the fullest is something they do best and will save a lot of their money to do it. They don’t like to waste time on anything that doesn’t benefit them, and this can make them very selfish in their own needs. If you’re in the way, they won’t hesitate to remove you. They respect themselves at a higher value and will make sure that they can back it up with material possessions and anything else that represents high status. These traits can cause them to be very arrogant and picky in who they want in their inner circle. They hate to be surrounded by people who can’t carry their own weight, or people with poor taste in how they represent themselves. They also work very hard to reach the top of their golden mountain and will soak in as much recognition in doing so.

They believe in respect to the fullest because it is implemented in everything they do and how they treat others. When in love, they are highly generous, very sweet and affectionate, also very traditional. The men will treat you with romance like a true gentleman, and the women will want to always be treated like a beautiful lady. They will only get involved with someone they can build a future with, everyone else can just go away. In turn, they will require obedience and respect from their loved ones, anything below this is a problem for them. They want to ensure their loved ones that they can be a provider and will do everything and anything to make it happen, so long as you do your part. This can make them a bit controlling in how things operate at home, but overall they want to build a future with someone and stick it out long-term.

Cancer and Capricorn in Love

The greatest thing about this relationship is that they are both cardinal signs, so they will both work endlessly to fulfill their future security and are made to carry a lot of weight for their family. The difference is that Cancer wants emotional security, whereas Capricorn wants financial security. When they bring these differences to the table, they can offer each other what the other cannot give themselves. This can also cause a lot of grief if they aren’t flexible or understanding of those differences.

Cancer has to understand that Capricorn isn’t as emotional as they are, rather they are much more straightforward and aren’t big dwellers. Capricorn, on the other hand, has to understand that Cancer is more sensitive and will need more emotional reassurance – especially when they’re in hiding. The benefits of reaching a compromise is that both can build a truly loving home, where Capricorn offers stability and Cancer offers sensitivity.
