Cancer - Sagittarius certainly isn’t a match that seems like it would work at all well. The Crab with its emotional depth and moodiness is not the easiest of mates. The adventurous Archer is a veritable ball of vitality. While there is definitely potential for clashes here, Sagittarius’s cool philosophical personality and easy-going way of dealing with the unusual is the saving grace for this pair.
Very much a Water Sign, emotion is the foundation of the Crab’s personality. Cancer lives in a world where every thought and feeling shifts the ground upon which it stands. The Crab carefully cultivates its enigmatic persona, and part of this cultivation is due to the Crab’s difficulty in communicating its own deeper thoughts and feelings with others. This leaves Cancer in a difficult position where it is seldom understood in a world in which it understands everyone else easily.
Charming Cancer is capable of giving the flattering impression that no one is as interesting and important to the Crab as the person it is speaking to at the moment. Cancer is capable of intuitively understanding exactly what someone needs to hear and offering just that. This gives the Crab formidable influence over those susceptible to emotional appeal. However, Cancer’s sensitive nature makes it unlikely that this ability will be used to hurt others.
The adventurous Archer is always aiming high. Never still for long, Sagittarius thrives on change and cannot bear being held back from pursuing whatever might catch its fancy. Seldom does the Archer fail to hit its target, perhaps because its optimistic outlook never even considers the possibility of failure. Sagittarius always finds the best in every person and situation and doesn’t believe in failure – after all, disaster is just another change of plans.
Deep emotional connection is alien to the makeup of the Archer. Rather aloof and philosophical, drama is more likely to roll right off blithe Sagittarius than to impact it. In fact, the Archer often won’t even realize anything dramatic is taking place. Sagittarius is independent and not at all susceptible to the opinions of others - its estimation of itself is too lofty to worry about what other people think. This extremely relaxed attitude causes the Archer to be rather unreliable as nothing seems terribly important to Sagittarius.
Cancer is all about depth, both in people and relationships. The Crab is unlikely to be attracted to the shallow-seeming Archer at first, so Sagittarius is probably going to be the initiator of this relationship. Cancer’s mystery and depth are novel to the Archer and present adventurous Sagittarius with a new zone to explore. Although the Crab is unlikely to discover the deep nature it generally looks for in the Archer, Sagittarius’s lively personality and fun ideas help Cancer find the light during its darker times.
When they get to know one another better, the Crab begins to see the advantages of a partner that isn’t much affected by its moodiness. Sagittarius doesn’t mind a change of plans should Cancer not feel like doing what had been agreed upon. Far from getting upset about this, the Archer seems to thrive on the adventure of finding something else to do, either alone or with its partner. Sagittarius’s independence and a wide circle of friends make these alterations easy since it won’t be sitting at home waiting for Cancer to feel better.
While the Archer isn’t a homebody at all, this doesn’t mean Sagittarius doesn’t appreciate the comfortable living conditions created by the Crab. Cancer is all about sensuality of all types and the Archer will happily share is the pleasures offered up by its partner. This pair complements one another well in the bedroom with the Crab highly accomplished in the art of pleasure and Sagittarius eager and willing to explore.
There’s no denying that the Crab and the Archer can make it work as long as they are content to keep things casual. While this will be fine with easy-going Sagittarius, it will be difficult for Cancer to resist pressing for more. The Archer likes its footloose and fancy-free lifestyle and isn’t interested in being tied down by a profound relationship. The Crab craves a much deeper connection, even when it wreaks havoc with its own emotional balance.
Loyalty is another protentional problem area between the Crab and the Archer. The Crab quickly becomes deeply devoted to its mate, so much so that it is nearly impossible for Cancer to extricate itself from a relationship that truly isn’t working. The Crab gives complete fidelity to its partner and expects the same in return. The Archer, on the other hand, is much more casual in its attachment and will be hard pressed to resist any temptation that might come it's way. In fact, Sagittarius lives so much in the moment, it may not even occur to the Archer at the time that it isn’t living up to the Crab’s expectations.
While Cancer’s mood swings aren’t likely to have a lot of emotional effect on happy-go-lucky Sagittarius, the less emotional Archer won’t understand them either. If the Crab plunges too deeply into depression or flares up in a rage, Sagittarius is much more likely to retreat in bewilderment than to stick around and discuss it. If this happens too often, the Archer may not come back at all.
Cancer and Sagittarius are certainly an implausible pair when their core values are considered. While they will never have a simple relationship, it isn’t impossible either. The Archer’s laid-back temperament is good for the angst of the Crab, while Cancer’s mood swings provide a never-ending adventure for Sagittarius. Though the Archer isn’t able to provide the meaningful connection that the Crab craves, Cancer soon discovers the advantages of a partner that doesn’t take much personally and will change plans cheerfully and without complaint. As long as the Crab can remain content with the Archer’s emotional limits and can accept that all-embracing loyalty isn’t part of its mate’s makeup, the couple can build a life of fun and pleasure.
