What makes them?
There is a strong work ethic underpinning any Cancer-Taurus relationship. They have the power to acquire the security and options that both want from life. It makes for a good marriage.
What breaks them?
This relationship almost seems like a gimme… and possibly too easy for both of them to not make their own problems. We all know Taurus is stubborn, but Cancer won’t see it that way. He’ll hold out for as long as it takes for her to try and back down from her opinions. Maybe too long…
Can it work?
Taurus Woman and Cancer Man can just as easily as it can slip out the door before both realise. They both pride themselves in holding onto things – ironically leading to one another taking this for granted. They’ll have to make sure they aren’t distracted by all their possessions and let love build bonds to last.
Taurus Woman and Cancer Man form one of the most straightforward couples on the zodiac, even if it will seem that way to everyone but these two. Cancer is not known to share the stubborn traits of strong, salt-of-the-earth Taurus female but he can protect his own emotions with the same toughness of character, if he senses she is stepping all over him. There really isn’t much complexity to this pairing as it is totally up to them whether they want to make their romance as easy or difficult as they want. The problem may simply lie in having too many options.
Both Taurus Woman and Cancer Man, as individuals, have many sides to their character that can go undiscovered for nearly a lifetime. If these two start dating each other on honest terms (which Taurus will insist upon anyway) with a lot of good will, then they can be the missing link in each other’s life to unlock new personas within them.
Taurus, particularly, has a life journey affected by her encounters. In Cancer male, she finds someone who will not abuse or misuse her and can give her what she wants the most: to be treated like a queen. She can easily mess this up if she confuses Cancer’s kindness for weakness.
Is it true that he becomes prone to periods of depression, glumness and needs to lighten up before he is ready to cease the day once more. Taurus can even help him to do this, because she can set any scene and is never short of understanding friends. But there is something of a Messiah-complex in how Cancer insists on doing things the right way.
If anything, this rare trait resonates with Taurus’ own convictions and shows the kind of strength in resolve that she rarely finds when she looks to her circle of friends. If she is wondering how he can be so reclusive and recalcitrant when he feels wronged, imagine how far he will go to protect her from injustice once they establish a commitment. This isn’t a case of what you see is what you get, Taurus! When it comes to Cancer, there really is more than meets the eye.
Nevertheless, male messiahs are often seen as effeminate in society and do not garner the same level of respect normally due to them, until circumstances prove them right in the end. Cancer’s resolve extends to formulating the perfect plan of attack on his career and social ambitions. When he finally risks his chips on the table, he executes the type of game plan to take no prisoners.
He may not be the life of the party, preferring to remain backstage with his trusted clique, but his colleagues are most likely to have the VIP all-access passes to the event. The wealth, security and plain common sense Cancer brings to any relationship (once he’s ready) is right up Taurus’ alley.
She, too, values family life but would dearly like her family to be able to rest on a certain amount of prestige. She also values nice things even if Cancer is a bit more functional when it comes to accessories. The quietly secure and re-affirming presence Cancer assumes in Taurus’ life can enhance her growth and help her to realize her own professional goals, even outdoing them. Her powers of organization will always exercise themselves back at the household before long, though. Cancer has a mate he can deeply appreciate as she is incredibly committed to family life and meets his ideals.
If Cancer can share in the views she paints around the household, these two can spend most days retiring to a loving nest that makes for a satisfying love life. Foreplay takes up a large part of their lovemaking sessions. They are just as likely to get lost in some 80s love-ballad or film soundtrack as they are to follow through and spent the rest of the night under the sheets.
It is just as well that these two can come to such a good understanding through body language and physical expression, since their verbal communication runs hot and cold. Again, the emphasis is on Cancer not to come off as too much of a wet towel. It is one thing to hold out on Taurus in the warm-up to the big event, but a queen bull that sits on top of her throne will never turn back and is always convinced her way is right.
She would second-guess herself or see the need to be more sensitive to her man’s feelings if, say, there were children and a family’s future at stake. Cancer will simply have to be mindful of her possessiveness, as he can easily put her nose out when she feels he divides too much attention between his children over her.
