Friendship Compatibility between Cancer and Aquarius
Cancer and Aquarius
- Friendship Compatibility Profile
When Cancer and Aquarius form a friendship, it can be a case of a draw between two opposite ends of the spectrum. Cancer has an emotional approach to life. Aquarius has an offbeat, unconventional approach to nearly every situation. While Cancer may retreat into its shell, Aquarius is the gregarious host among the group of friends and excels in business and social situations. If these two can learn to combine their qualities in a positive way, they can go anywhere together.
Both Cancer and Aquarius can be ambitious and determined. They like to do things their way and don't like to encounter resistance. Cancer appreciates tradition and routine and exhibits conservative morals. Aquarius is modern and is numbed by routine, the dull and the boring.
Cancer will find Aquarius exciting yet may feel frustrated trying to penetrate this revolutionary's mind. Aquarius will not appreciate the possessiveness of a pinching Crab but will find the solid base that Cancer can provide to be a great support. They just probably won't want to admit it!
Cancer is ruled by the Moon, and Aquarius is ruled by Saturn and Uranus. The Moon is a radiant, feminine energy and Saturn is a cool, contained masculine energy. Uranus is about all things abnormal and novel. The Moon is emotional, concerned with growth and domesticity, both of which are important to Cancer. Saturn is about hard work and discipline to achieve goals while Uranus symbolizes forward thought. Cancer will teach Aquarius about making decisions based on emotional impulses. Aquarius can teach Cancer to be more detached, to extricate themselves from uncontrollable situations and to reevaluate goals if they are off course.
Cancer is a Water Sign, and Aquarius is an Air Sign. Aquarius moves through life with pure, intellectual exploration, while Cancer is more pragmatic. Cancer asks, 'how does this feel?' while Aquarians simply focus on their interests and ask 'what else?' These friends may find it difficult to understand the other's origin of thought. Conflicts can arise in this friendship if Cancer is too demanding or if Aquarius seems too cool and denies Cancer emotional reassurance. Both need to learn that they view the world in different ways, and they should celebrate differences rather than feeling threatened.
Cancer is a Cardinal Sign, and Aquarius is a Fixed Sign. Both partners tend to persevere when working toward their goals. If they have a set path, they'll follow it to the end. Once they have made up their minds that spending time together is worthwhile, they will never be dissuaded from that knowledge. If they have differing ideas, they may find that the Cancer is the more tenacious, more dogmatic partner who is not beyond emotional manipulation. Aquarius may see Cancer as being too feeling-oriented. If they understand they're working together out of mutual respect and admiration, it's much easier for them to get along.
The best aspect of the Cancer-Aquarius friendship is that when this pair decides to come together they are an indomitable force. Once they can work out their differences, come together and agree on the inner workings of their connection, the dynamics of this friendship can be a good balance.
