Compatibility Horoscope for Virgo woman and Cancer man
A man born in the sign of Cancer and a woman born as Virgo will not jump into the relationship right after they meet; instead, they will check each other out and try to listen to what their inner voice has to say about one another; and only then they may finally decide that their communication can lay a solid foundation for a future marriage. The compatibility horoscope for this couple allows making a conclusion that they have all the chances to live happily for long years and it is the elements of Earth and Water that make their alliance rather stable.
Virgo woman is very calm, balanced and well-established with her own opinions and habits; she knows well that she wants her life to be stable and safe. She will rarely get involved with someone who may destroy this arrangement. One would think that a man born in the sign of Cancer would be the worst match for her, but the element of disorganized Cancer - Water - somehow makes the Virgin more serene. She gets captivated by Cancer's soft smile, tenderness, his readiness to console, help and calm his beloved down. A man born as Cancer has gentle manners, soft voice and tender glance which envelopes the Virgin and suddenly she is absolutely sure she has a vital need in this man who will give her love and affection in exchange for her consistency and practicality. First, however, she will doubt the sincerity of his feelings. She believes a man must be strong and perseverant and Cancer's softness tends to raise some concerns and makes her feel as if something fishy is going on. Time will pass and the Virgin will dismiss her concerns - her partner's affection will prove stable and genuine.
A man born in the zodiac sign of Cancer has some romantic carelessness about him - both in how he looks and behaves. He, similar to a wandering artist, will praise the Virgin without paying much attention to the fact that lack of organization and some absentmindedness of his make their everyday life dysfunctional. He may respond to the Virgin's claims and remarks with long periods of silent treatment and grudges. Virgo woman is very strict both towards herself and her partner and her heightened tendency to criticize is as natural to her as Cancer's inclination to take offense. The compatibility horoscope wants these two to beware: if they don't change the way things are between them, their relationship will be fraught with great difficulties in their family life that may even lead to a breakup. The Virgin is smart enough to be able to somewhat soften her criticism and Cancer has an acute ability to analyze a situation; thus, positive efforts from both partners can ensure harmony in their family.
