Cancer And Leo Love Compatibility, Friendship And Communication

Cancer, the fourth sign of the Zodiac covers people born between June 22 and July 22.  Being the first of the water signs, Cancer, is highly empathic or sensitive.  

The Crabs get hurt easily and when reality bites, these people prefer to escape in their own little world.  Ruled by the moon, these individuals experience mood changes that relate to the actual phases of the Moon.

Romantic to the core, these water-sign people become deeply anchored in their love relationships that letting go is almost destructive to them.  The best match for those born under this sign are people who value their privacy, family and home.  

The fifth sign of the zodiac, Leo is a Masculine, Fixed, Positive, Fire sign.  Leos were born between July 23 and August 23.  Ruled by the Sun, Leo, the Lion exudes great charisma plus a sunny glistening personality.  The Sun is the giver of life to our solar system, so it is not surprising that those born under this sign possess an innate ability to light up the sky and the lives of people they encounter.  

Sun influenced people tend to be straightforward, demanding and capable of spreading much-needed energy to others. Leo is a fixed fire sign, unlike Aries, its powerful energies are more contained. This sign conveys warmth and creativity.  Unwavering dependability and courage are strong traits of Lions.

When it comes to love, Leos wear their hearts on their sleeves.

Lions do not step on the brakes till they win the object of their affection.  Those born under this sign are believers of love at first sight or serendipity and will charge into a commitment without weighing the pros and cons.

Leos follow their hearts and throw objectivity out the window when it gets in the way. These individuals are extremely affectionate and faithful to the love of their lives.  Lions expect the same kind of ardor and level of loyalty from their partners.  Needless to say, infidelity will cause this romantic Fire sign to end all ties with his/her mate.

Cancer Man And Leo Woman Compatibility

Cancer woman has so much to give in terms of love. Her ability to pick up on how others feel make her a wonderful partner.  However, this gift can also lead to emotional complexities that can wreak havoc on her relationships. It is best for her to be with someone who will be able to tolerate and perhaps tone down all that drama. Someone who will help her see the world from a different perspective.  

A Leo man may just be able to do all that. As I have mentioned in my previous post, he is so energetic, warm-hearted and outgoing that is impossible for her not to get affected by his vibrant personality.

Leo loves to be adored and no one else in the zodiac can make his heart flutter like she does.  Having innate sense of what others need to hear and feel at any given moment, make it easy for her to figure him out on an emotional level.  He will be immersed in her world of emotions, no matter how conflicting that can be.  

She perceives the world through her feelings while he, through his intuition.  Cancer’s fear of criticisms and rejections can be muted by this man’s high level of confidence.  The Lion can teach her to come out of her shell and boldly pursue her heart’s desires.  She is a cardinal sign person after all, a go-getter by nature, so a little push from him will do the trick.

Cancer Woman and Leo Man Compatibility

Reserved Cancer man will definitely be attracted to the magnetic Lioness.  Her sunny personality will break down his barriers and once his walls are down, he would want to get into a relationship with her. Good at gauging other people, he will know instinctively the right things to say to her that will make this woman seek his company more often.  

A Leo woman needs a healthy dose of these three – attention, appreciation and respect. The intuitive Crab will be able to deliver all that.  

The Crab wants romance and will stop at nothing to have it in his life, while Leos are romantic to the core and will dive head first when smitten.  She takes courtship seriously and he knows the perfect way to woo a lady.

Once a Cancer man falls in love, he will stay that way for a long time.  When he feels he has found “the One”, marriage is always up for consideration.  On the other hand, marriage brings out the best in the Lioness because she values home and family.  

Cancer And Leo Compatibility Verdict

A lot of people have misgivings about this match up because Water and Fire signs do not usually go well together but I am inclined to think otherwise.  Why do I think it will work out?

First: Leo is a fixed sign, making it the most stable one, among the Fire signs soit will not be difficult for him/her to cope with Cancer’s emotional roller coaster. In fact, Leo would want to stay by Cancer’s side to help him/her deal with issues.  

Gifted with endurance, Lions hang in there for the duration while patiently finding ways to work things out. The Crab’s constant ups and downs can be tempered by the Lion’s more positive and grounded outlook in life.

Second: These two are both hopeless romantics with marriage as their ultimate goal.    Both are known to be extraordinarily faithful to their partners.   

Third:  The greatest strength of this relationship is their ability to help each other pursue their desires.  Leo can teach Cancer to be more aggressive while the latter can help curb Leo’s impulsiveness.

My Verdict: These two will be able to connect in some strange way and manage to beat the odds.
