Sagittarius Woman and Cancer Man Compatibility

Strong bankers for success in this relationship

They’re both children at heart and can laugh at anything. They also make great lovers.

Potential pitfalls

There are a mountain of differences here… in approach, outlook, skills, desires… and they’ll all need to be bridged by hard-nosed, bottom-line benefits for both. Especially Sagittarius will want comfort for all she has to compromise on.

Can it work?

Against all odds, it can. The thing they have in their advantage is the ability to laugh off anything, including their mistakes and differences. They will fall out over a ton of things and always pull in different directions, but there is no real malice behind the slow-burning Cancer-Sag romance.

It almost provides a source of never-ending entertainment for their family and friends once Sagittarius Woman and Cancer Man discover they will never be on the same page on many things, but these lovers have enough of a bridge between their worlds for the attraction to be sustained by purpose.

One key plus factor is Sagittarius woman’s natural gravitation (despite whatever she may claim) towards security and a man who can guarantee a future. Cancer is that mcouples romance compatibilityan.

It may take him a while to get everything together at the standard he requires, but Cancer will always come out as the dependable, solid “family man” bet by sundown. Sagittarius has spent much of her adolescence and youth hovering from party to party, not even necessarily dabbling in the darker arts of such a lifestyle (considering she has an extremely upbeat perspective on life) but knowing she does not want to miss out on life’s possibilities.

Truthfully, her heart is not nearly as cynical as her execution. She’ll meet plenty of flattering and affable lovers but find none of them hold the same gravitas as the stare of a Cancer male who means business.

This is the first man she’s encountered who means and delivers on what he says, or forever holds his peace. Their preliminary flirting sessions can intrigue Sagittarius because Cancer seems to show a side of himself to her that he would hide from the rest of the world. What women doesn’t love that? She encounters him at the usual parties but he is always the one to leave slightly early.

Time shows Sagittarius that her Cancer love interest proves a wholesome man with enough fear of rejection to match her vulnerable hope for happiness. If he can quietly lure her in with the prospect of benefits and security away from a lifestyle that gradually takes toll on her lonesome routine, she convinces herself Cancer is worth her time and commitment in trying to put a smile on his face.

As soon as they begin to spend most of their time together, it is a careful negotiation of terms and figuring out just how far one side will cave before making a stand. For instance, Cancer’s possessiveness rises to the surface and he’ll soon demand changes to the landscape of Sagittarius’ social life.

How many friends Sagittarius will put on the back burner for the Cancer goods to keep flowing into their joint coffers is a variable that changes over time and necessity. She won’t object to the gradual transition from beer keg to wedding anniversaries, just as long as she can get the same amount of social kudos from her circle of friends for her progression.

Sagittarius also has very little tolerance or desire to an exclusive audience-of-one to Cancer’s more dramatic and dark moods, but Cancer could be convinced to take his frustrations out on a well-timed holiday vacation, in exchange for the prospect of one-on-one time with his Sag lover (he should be so privileged!)

Eventually, they’ll both laugh at themselves. Their friends and family possibly warned them of their differences and Cancer-Sagittarius know they’ll never completely overcome them. But this two have hearts of gold and won’t be tempted to use skullduggery to transform the other’s way of thinking. The simple decision is whether they have a good enough thing not to go searching for a better deal somewhere else.

The secret factor swinging the balance in their favour is the potential for discovery and sensuality in lovemaking. Sagittarius is a known (although she wouldn’t have it known too publicly) adventurous and experimental lover. Cancer is equally as attentive and doesn’t particularly need to try hard in turning on his partners… he just has the magic hands like that. You can’t find a substitute for natural talent. Sagittarius will revel in the feelings Cancer provokes out of every inch of her being, and use her daring to heighten their pleasure.

If these two had the ability to touch a single malicious nerve in each other, across their sea of differences, we’d warn to stay well away. However, sometimes fate intervenes to bring the best out of opposites and that is no more evident than when Cancer male and Sagittarius female get together for a lasting union.

  1. I Dk why it got cut off but here’s the rest!! ….. He asked me if I trust him? And started to ask about my past, and what kind of guys I’m into, he also said he wants a girl he can grow with, I’m so confused!! I don’t know what to do with him, I Dk if it’s because of the age difference (he’s 20, I’m 25) or his contradicting cancer self…. Help?

    • Yeah he sounds inexperienced, self doubt creeping in. Any guy that has to ask about your past before being in a relationship with you has some self esteem missing. It’s on you to share with him whatever you feel comfortable sharing but don’t read too much into his contradictions or get lost in them.

  2. I just recently started to getting to know a cancer and a lot of what I’ve read makes so much sense! When we first met I was in a relationship, I was magnetically drawn to this guy so badly, he knew I was in a relationship but we still kept in communication with each other he didn’t know at that time I had already broken up with my boyfriend but when he found out, we went from talking almost every day to nothing but I found a way to wheel him in lol ehh, we finally hung out and he made a move on me, then he mentioned rather quickly that he wasn’t looking for anything later on he asked me if I trust him

  3. Well I’ve been with my cancer man for 2 years known each other for 3 but it feels like I’ve been knowing him for forever . I really believe that he’s my soul mate. Me being a Sagittarius (12/10) sometimes I do need my space. him on the other hand cancer male (06/28) he doesn’t take me having space well he thinks I’m out cheating or doing something yes I’m very attractive to other men but I’m not easy to get in to he thinks just cause I’m friendly and nice that I just cling on to any one and I’m not I haven’t cheated on him at all since we’ve been together I really love him and the caring person he is i know I would never find that type of love again please give me some advise on getting him to trust me what can I do so that I won’t get upset when he starts tripping about me cheating . please some one.

    • Tell him attractive women who are well practiced in turning down male advances are statistically the most faithful women. This is a proven trend. Because they have practice in setting their own boundaries every day. You can even show him that I said this – the rest is his own insecurity but if you manage to say it in a way that comes off as sincere without bragging he should be able to relax and realise faithfulness is not the issue.

  4. I’m a sag lady who has been married to a cancer man for 8 years (together for 10) oddly we are compatible we are very different in personalities but some way some how we work lol my husband is very affectionate & caring & he is really open & communicative he has taught me to think before I speak & he has learned to give me my “space” when needed I think we balance each other well we have our moments but whatever problems we face they always blow over quickly & we usually go right back to laughing as if nothing occurred he can be moody at times but I’ve come to understand that’s his way of letting me know he needs to talk without him saying he needs to talks if that makes any sense I adore my husband he’s sweet nurturing & loving a sag & cancer union can indeed work ❤

  5. Hi Mike.

    Us Saggi women cannot deal with stress, particularly, when we’re tired and everything seems mundane. We do like talking and it’s important that we’re able to communicate how we’re feeling with our partners. What you could do is the following:

    1. Take her for a quiet meal/one day away or weekend away from everything and talk about how she is feeling and how you both could resolve how she feels

    2. Allow her to go for weekends away on her own so she can have that time to herself to recuperate. I do that and it helps strengthen me for the next battlefield. :o) Even if it’s to go to a hotel bcos I don’t need to do anything; just listen to music and chill.

    Just give her some time, space and converse with her in a comforting setting and she maybe ok. I’m courting a cancer man and as beautiful as he is, I can see his subtle possessive ways. However, we talk a lot and I make sure I drum in his head that whatever problems we may have, we should always communicate to get over any obstacle, which he agrees.

    Don’t worry, you’ll be fine. I assure you if you allow her some quiet time, she’ll adore you even more for it.

    Good luck.

  6. Well im a cancer man and it seems like my sag woman and i are having difficult time communicating now. Im everything it says about a cancer man but she just seems so stressed out these days and everyone pulling her for attention, children and me. Not sure what to do now except leave her alone and give her that freedom

    • Would love some advise on what to do. Seems like our past luggage gets in the way at times. I notice it more than she

      • Hello Mike,

        I am a sag woman dating a cancer man. It seems that you are describing me in your message! :) I have been exorbitantly stressed and stretched in multiple directions as of late. All that I would hope for is that my cancer fellow would take the reins a bit and whisk me away from everything and from myself. Take control of my wellbeing.

        Don’t under estimate our inability to ask for help, as well as our deep attraction to a nurturing/take control kind of guy. She will appreciate your attentiveness and overall investment in her happiness. I assure you!

    • Hello Mike, I too am a Sag and dating a Cancer and can totally relate to what you are experiencing with you Sag. As a female Sag who tends to shut down when the going gets tough…only because it’s when I need to gain focus and regroup. I say to you, let your Sag know you are their for her and that if she needs you, you will be there without hesitation. Sag women like independence, but all the same need someone who can take the reigns when times get tough. Love, understanding, and communication go a long way in a Cancer / Sag relationship.

  7. Whowa,

    Just gave me a little hope.

    I just met a cancer man whom we mon stop talked for hours… Dates: conversation flys: we laugh like kids.

    He is moving house and already has kids…
    I am travelling now for three weeks and I thiught I would have strayed especially over New Years… Not that withing this first phase very early days moment I would have wanted to be committed, but having come out of relationships over the past three years where a man cheated on me.. I thought I would have needed more time alone.

    I am scared about this one. Mainly scared I will lose him. I read a little about cancer men and they would not probably like their partner to be off over seas kissing men.

    This thought … Helped me. Realise that flimsy fling overseas would not be worth the strong feelings o have towards this cancer man. So early days but … I am filled with desire and possibility about the perhaps to be relationship.

    He has not been first to contact me since I have been away.. Are they shy of contact?
    He is busy moving, but.. I just want to see his desire… I guess patience is my lesson here and trust.

  8. I also met my cancer male at work after he pretty much came after me. We argue, get back together but its so exciting to me. I like what we have and wouldn’t trade it in for the world. One of the best lovers I’ve had that was very sensual. I love my cancer man and when I wanna leave him alone, I never can.

  9. I’m a female Sagittarius currently dating a Cancer man & this makes so much sense to me. We met at work, starting off as just flirtatious friends, but it quickly developed into a very steamy romance. After about 5 months he started to become very weary of our relationship, mainly because he said he felt he could never truly tame me. Even though I would normally just walk away & move onto the next I couldn’t get him out of my mind, & heart. Although I was married in the past & have had many serious relationships, as opposed to his much less experienced love life, I have never met a man who made me feel the way he does. He brings out the more loving side of me, which in the past I thought was just nonexistent. He makes me feel safe & want to be a better person, & I make him want to explore his wild side a bit more. We are both children at heart so the laughter never stops. Opposites do attract, & I truly believe that we can be each other’s life match, although I realize it will take work on both ends.

    • I’ve learned a lot more insight from Sag women themselves over the last few months, and the partners that date them. Take this as merely constructive criticism of Sag even though I know Cancer has a lot of work themselves to do.

      Sags can be as giving and sacrificing as ever in friendship, yet when it comes to romance they come off as self-centred, self-serving, hell… even selfish in the way they pursue only what feels good to them. It’s a hedonistic trait that makes them very very cool friends, maybe not so hot to be at home with on a day to day basis.

      And I think a lot of that comes out of the “loving side” that you previously thought was “non-existent” – I hear that a lot from Sag women who’ve been through enough experiences. If you never knew it was there, you could never be expected to find reasons to work on it. It’s tough discovering that new side of you. A Sag Woman just recently opened up a completely new side to me which made me dead afraid.

      The other thing is Sag women often like to play off that they need nobody, hence they’re with you because they want you. To them that’s more valuable as you are their “chosen” one. But all men need to feel needed on some deeper level.

      Those are just two points I find make relationships for Sags run smoother. And of course your partner should be wanting to better themselves too. Especially in this one. Believe me – Cancer and Sagittarius one of the best kept secrets on the zodiac. Enjoy it.

        Love the article and comments. I am a female Sagittarius (12/14) and I will say that the true love of my love was a cancer (07/21),. He is the one who got away due to my stupidity. He was loving, loyal, faithful, dedicated and a true friend. I hurt him very badly and I will never get over it. This was quite a few years ago, but I can say that it was the perfect match.

  10. I am a sagie lady and I am currently dating a cancer man. I fully concur with your findings. For us, it was quite strange cause we met at the airport where both of us were in transit, sat over a restaurant to talk for 2hours and the conversation was flowing as if we had known each other over ages. From then, we were on on and off communication for almost 11months after I had teased him about a man who did not exist in my life. All of a sudden we have hooked up again this year and its a mounth now and things are going on very well with us.

    It true sometimes I feel like he is very reserved and selfcentred but he is indeed a child at heart and I am glad we can now communicate very well. I have fallen over hills for him.

    I recently fell in love with a female sagittarius (Im a male cancer) and I was suprised how much of the above rings true. I am still in the early stages of the relationship but I love this girl very much and this just re-enforced what I already knew. Anyways…. good one. This pleases me.

    • That’s always great to hear Jason. Mimi and myself wrote these a while back and before we moved onto to posting more in depth astrology we wanted these horoscopes to be really tight. Cancer and Sagittarius is actually a really counter intuitive pairing in spirit yet we see this couple work all the time in real life to very pleasing effect. I know a Cancer and Sagittarius marriage going on 40 years strong within my extended family. Good luck!
