Zodiac Compatibility Rule!
✦ Water ~ Water ✔
✦ Water ~ Earth ✔
✦ Water ~ Air/ Fire ✗
A pure Cancerian is extremely attached to his/her home―family and closed ones, like a crab is attached to its home. This water sign would rather betray their own self than those who they care for. They are very loyal, and may expect the same from their partner. If they get hurt, they would distance themselves from the world, like a crab hides itself in its shell. This sage-like sign would never attempt to take a revenge on those who've hurt them.

Gentle and sensitive, Cancers would never go for flings. They crave for love and emotional contentment. They believe in lifelong friendships and permanent partnerships. So if you dream of a domestic life, never let that Crab crawl outta your life.

As far as the basic rules of zodiac compatibility are concerned, firstly, water would be most compatible with water, and next, would share a great comfort with Earth. Therefore, Cancer, being a water sign can be paired up with other water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) and Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo). Let's look at the signs that would blend well with Cancer.
With Cancer
Relationship Compatibility: A Cancer and Cancer together would make an extremely romantic match affirmed with intense emotions and enormous closeness. You both have a craving for love, and hence a craving for each other. Since y'all belong to the same zodiac category, you two can empathize each other, and harmonize your temperaments well. As Cancerians tend to be in their shell, in their own little world―the two of you are very attached to your families, and your past. Your relationship can have a few zigzags owing to the discussions springing up from your pasts and fluctuating moods, but with little understanding and faith in each other, this duo can lead a life full of love and happiness.

Intimacy: A cancerian is full of daydreaming and fantasizing. You both make exciting lovers sexually, as y'all share your fantasies and make it a point to turn them into reality. Y'all crave for both, emotional as well as a physical connection, making very sensual bed mates.

Our Call: Like attracts like!
