Sagittarius and Cancer Compatibility
It’s easy enough to tell straight away from the zodiac archetypes of this couple that true Sagittarius and Cancer compatibility in love will be hard to find. The fundamental nature of the Homemaker, Cancer, is at odds with the wanderlust and expansiveness of Sagittarius the Adventurer. This relationship is a constant battle between security and risk, with neither partner being fully able to compromise.
Sagittarius and Cancer compatibility, uneasy though it is, does manifest as a steamy and passionate match – for a short while. This could be a relationship or love affair which burns brightly for a few weeks or a few months, before Sagittarius’ fire boils away Cancer’s emotions, and until Cancer’s water threatens to extinguish Sagittarian enthusiasm for good. That’s the trouble with these two: they will try to change each other.
The Cancer partner is all about home and family life, and forging a stable home will be their top priority in a relationship. The Sagittarius partner really isn’t interested in all that, and would much rather sow his or her wild oats first. Sagittarius would be delighted to have Cancer along for the ride on the adventure, but Cancer won’t want to go – which leaves Sagittarius exploring alone, and Cancer sat at home waiting and wondering and constantly wondering whether the Adventurer will ever return. It’s a constant worry and turmoil for Cancer, and Sagittarius compatibility will not improve as the Homemaker tries to take control and limit Sagittarius’ freedom.
Expect a lot of bickering between this couple. Cancer can be very passive aggressive and manipulative when they’re not getting their own way, which infuriates Sagittarius. The Adventurer can be blunt, tactless and hurtful, but the Sag partner will always be honest and direct. Cancer’s evasive ways will not go down well here. For Sagittarius and Cancer, compatibility doesn’t always extend even as far as enjoying a good argument, because both partners will fight very differently and will quickly become frustrated by the other.
The good news is that there is very little malice in their fights. Sagittarius is fundamentally good-hearted and well-meaning and does not want to hurt Cancer. Cancer is kind, gentle and loving, and does not want to hurt Sagittarius – but they just can’t help it. With (a lot of) patience and mutual understanding, this couple could learn to tolerate one another’s differences, and then possibly Sagittarius and Cancer compatibility might improve. The problem is, however, that the Sagittarius partner isn’t hot on patience and the relationship might never get deep enough for the pair to discover a way through the mess.
Sagittarius and Cancer Compatibility Scores
Sagittarius and Cancer can be a challenging relationship to make work. The low scores represent the initial compatibility of this match. However, you are both strong willed enough to make this work, and if you succeed the scores would be much higher. A key thing to keep in mind in this relationship is that Cancer is a lot more sensitive than they first appear - they’re a master at putting up a false front.
