    Love Compatibility between Cancer and Libra

    Cancer and Libra
    - Love Compatibility Profile :

    When Cancer and Libra make a love match, they give to one another important things that each lacks. Both Signs seek a secure, assured relationship and will enjoy their shared appreciation for beauty and luxury -- especially when it comes to their domestic environment. These two can blend their energies harmoniously if they choose to work toward a common goal. Though this pairing may progress more slowly than some others, and at first they may fear that they have little else in common than their mutual needs for companionship and love of beauty. However, the more they get to know one another, the better each individual in this Cancer-Libra love match will recognize and respect positive qualities in the other.
    Neither Cancer nor Libra shy away from combining the powers of their emotion and their intellect, and both enjoy the occasional teary opera or sentimental heirloom. Expression of sentiment and happiness are important to both Signs, and Cancer and Libra can complement one another in many ways. Cancer appreciates Libra's charm and tact, and Libra's calm, cool diplomacy skills can tame even the wildest pouting fit a Cancer can muster up. Also, Libra, lover of aesthetic beauty and harmony, will appreciate their Cancer mate's nurturing instinct for a comfortable home and the security that comes with it. Libra can offer the sometimes emotionally impetuous Cancer some perspective on situations. Cancer needs to see the different sides of an issue, or this Crab may be prone to making decisions without knowing all the facts. Conversely, Cancer can help Libra cure their notorious indecision.
    The Moon (Emotion) rules Cancer, and the Planet Venus (Love) rules Libra. These planetary partners share a love of home, family and romance. While Libra is known for its balancing nature (the Balance is Libra's symbol, after all!), these love partners share nurturing personalities and desire harmony over conflict. More than any other match-up of Signs, this astrological pair brings a warmth and sense of stability to those around them. Despite all the harmony and homey happiness, though, Librans, whose life approach is based on intellect, can be a bit snobbish and superior, and Cancer, who looks at life through emotional lenses, still has those easily bruised feelings to contend with.
    Cancer is a Water Sign, and Libra is an Air Sign. Libra sees life as a pure mental exploration, while Cancer's experience is more tactile, more kinesthetic. Cancer is most satisfied when their emotional needs are met, while Libra simply focuses on what stimulates their mind. At times, these lovers may find it difficult to understand one another. Conflicts can arise in this relationship if Cancer seems too crabby or Libra seems too provocative. Both need to learn that they simply view the world in different ways.
    Cancer and Libra are both Cardinal Signs. In this relationship, there could be struggles over who wears the pants, who's at the steering wheel, who's really in control here. If Libra's indecision irritates Cancer, Libra can turn on their subtle charm and sense of fairness and go along with Cancer's decision -- as long as Cancer doesn't get Crabby! Both are initiators, which can, when their ideas and approaches differ, be quite a struggle.
    What's the best thing about the Cancer-Libra love match? Their mutual appreciation of stability and domestic balance. Aesthetics matter to them, and they share a love of the comforts in life. Their similar tastes and loves make theirs a relationship of great dedication and harmony.
