Even though a Cancer – Libra pairing isn’t going to set the world on fire, this couple enjoys a life of friendship and harmony many would envy. Libra is, as always, the peacemaker in this match while Cancer is easily placated if its feathers happen to be ruffled. While there isn’t any profound emotional connection here, the charming Scales quickly becomes an expert at lightening up the mood and bringing the Crab out of its protective shell.
The Crab is an expert at forging connections and once it has taken hold, it’s very difficult to get Cancer to let go. The Crab’s attachment to its mate is profound and Cancer can be sentimental to an extreme shared by few other Signs. The Crab often keeps in touch with its former partners and may make attempts to rekindle a romance if it doesn’t currently have a partner. Cancer, who can be a bit vengeful if it feels wronged, is not above some attempts at wreaking havoc with a former lover’s new relationship.
Cancer’s innate ability to ascertain emotions, even those that are carefully hidden, is the key to its overwhelming charm. The Crab is highly sensitive, but unlike some empaths, doesn’t absorb the emotions of its target. This allows Cancer to maintain its objectivity but also permits it to manipulate others if it wishes to. However, the Crab’s power to exert influence is usually reserved for helping others to better deal with events and emotions rather than used for selfish reasons.
Libra is a peacemaker to the core. The Scales is extremely uncomfortable when there is any dissention in the ranks and Libra takes it upon itself to soothe the tensions. This can lead to the Scales becoming a bit of a busybody and getting involved in matters that don’t particularly concern it. However, Libra is so charming that somehow no one minds its managing behavior, even when the Scales decides to administer a sound scolding to one or both parties.
Along with Libra’s exceptional charm, the Scales commands an elegance and poise that is a joy to behold. Libra spends a lot of time perfecting its personal appearance and is always well put together. Whether the Scales is attractive in an orthodox way or not, Libra is nearly always described as being beautiful. The Scales is a great admirer of beauty in general and likes to surround itself with pretty things.
Even though there isn’t any “love at first sight” moment when Cancer and Libra first meet, the two immediately feel like old friends. The Crab can easily read the guileless Scales and Libra is charmed by Cancer’s way with people. These two will spend hours in lively discussion on many subjects, especially abstract concepts and the paranormal. Libra firmly believes Cancer is psychic in the way it can read others. Cancer is appreciative of the attention and certainly isn’t immune to Libra’s charm.
Libra and Cancer are well balanced when it comes to the love of home and sociability. The Scales loves to spend time at home but also enjoys spending a night on the town. The Crab is a bit more of a homebody but is happy to be cajoled by Libra when the Scales insists on going out. Cancer and Libra share a deep love of all things beautiful and they will create a lovely, well-appointed home between them, sharing the household chores equitably.
The Crab’s tendency to be despondent may pose a problem to many, but lively Libra is quite up to the task of gently pulling the sad Crab out of its shell. The Scales has a fair amount of empathy in its own right and is able to discern exactly the attitude, be it humoring or scolding, Cancer needs to break through its dark mood. In turn, the Crab showers Libra with affection and care.
The Scales and the Crab both enjoy taking life at a slower pace and are relieved to have a mate who doesn’t try to push them faster. Their life together is all about relaxing alongside someone they trust and enjoy spending time with. The pair takes great pleasure in self-indulgent pursuits such as long baths together or a spa day complete with a couple’s massage.
Libra’s easy-going temperament and Cancer’s devotion to the relationship make the chances of severe problems rather slim. Yet there are a few significant hurdles for this couple to overcome if they want to remain together. Perhaps the uppermost is the Scale’s love of material things. Cancer, with so much of its world wrapped up in its feelings, is a bit of a minimalist. While Libra doesn’t necessarily want a lot of things, it does believe in buying the very best. This can put a strain on the couple’s finances and plunge the Crab deeper into the depression that seems always to be just under the surface.
Cancer’s moodiness is also a potential area for friction. Libra is quite well balanced emotionally, but it can be a material strain to be the one who must always be strong. Libra does love to be in charge and will soldier on without complaint for quite a while. However, should the Crab fail to recuperate from the blues, the Scales will begin to feel quite deserted, and Libra cannot bear to be alone. This situation may result in a vicious cycle where the Scales looks outside the relationship for companionship and the Crab sinks deeper and deeper into despair.
Cancer and Libra make quite an equitable couple. The charm and liveliness of the Scales hides a strong character quite capable of handling the Crab’s moodiness. Cancer’s deep love and devotion provide Libra with the acceptance and steady company it needs. Together they will design a lovely home as well as an existence filled with companionship and beauty where each can experience life at its own pace. If Libra’s materialism and Cancer’s tendency to depression are kept in check, this pair will surely live happily forever after.
