Cancer and Virgo make a very serene couple. Neither the Crab nor the Virgin are comfortable with conflict and will spend a lot of time and energy to make their partner happy. These two share a similar level of devotion in a relationship so both partners are secure and relaxed in this pairing. While there isn’t much in the way of fireworks here, this is a comfortable, happy combination.
Emotional Cancer is seldom content when single. Left to itself, the Crab’s inner turmoil is too intense. The right partner helps Cancer tame its emotional lion and maintain balance. The Crab falls in love quite easily and it’s an all-or-nothing proposition for Cancer. Once a mate is accepted, the Crab quickly and thoroughly intermingles their individual lives as it wants to share everything with its significant other. Cancer is absolutely dedicated to its partner and loves to shower them with affection.
Because the Crab is such an emotional entity, living with Cancer can be difficult for anyone who has much empathy. Lively and charming one moment, in tears the next, and dejected after that, living with the Crab can be quite an emotional roller coaster. The Crab is much better off with a partner that exercises significant control over their own feelings and can help Cancer maintain balance.
The modesty of Virgo is so pronounced that the Virgin is often overlooked for those who are more flamboyant. Virgo gives the impression of being a rather simple, hardworking person without much depth. Imagine a person’s surprise when they scratch the surface and discover a lively wit paired with an iron will. The Virgin is highly intelligent and determined to quietly reach its goals no matter how long it takes. With a typical Earth Sign’s persistence, Virgo nearly always achieves its resolutions.
The Virgin has a solid sense of integrity and loves to help others. In fact, Virgo’s satisfaction is much more likely to come from the act of being helpful than from any material success it may realize from its efforts. The Virgin possesses superlative skills in organization and the ability to quickly assess situations. This makes Virgo a great asset to any project it chooses to take on.
This couple is most likely to begin as friends or co-workers. There are no emotional pyrotechnics or “love at first sight” feelings when these two first meet. Virgo is great at hiding its true self and Cancer tends to be so enigmatic that it takes the pair a bit of time to really get to know one another. Once they do, both discover the great potential in one another, and the relationship grows rapidly.
Domestic bliss could be the best way to describe a successful Cancer – Virgo pairing. Both the Crab and the Virgin are extremely domestic and ardent lovers of beautiful things. This pair will take much joy in creating a lovely home with every comfort they can afford. It is here that they will spend most of their time, comfortably engaged in conversation, cooking delicious meals, even occasionally entertaining a small group of friends. Both are quite willing to share in the housework so there is no friction in this area either.
Virgo does feel deeply, but with its Earth Sign temperament, its emotions are kept strictly under control at all times. The Crab intuitively senses this sets about helping its partner acknowledge its own hidden feelings. The Virgin is quite capable at weathering Cancer’s emotional variations unscathed, allowing the Crab to relax in its mate’s presence and taking the pressure off.
Both the Crab and the Virgin are loyal and dedicated mates. While Cancer is, by far, the most emotionally attached, Virgo is quite devoted and its sense of integrity is very strong, prohibiting any act of unfaithfulness. The Crab’s clinginess isn’t an issue for Virgo, as the Virgin is a little insecure as well as a bit of a control freak and quite enjoys the sense of power being depended on furnishes to it.
Perhaps Cancer and Virgo seem as though they aren’t likely to have any weaknesses as a couple, but this isn’t the case at all. There’s a very real danger that power will become unbalanced in this relationship, with Virgo slowly taking control of more and more areas until the Crab becomes more like the Virgin’s child than its lover. The Virgin’s organizational abilities, superlative work ethics, and love of control when combined with the Crab’s lack of worldliness and avoidance of conflict provide the perfect stage for this drama. To make things worse, Cancer is quite likely to encourage this state of affairs, at least in the beginning, as it makes the Crab feel cared for and protected.
This lack of balance can also begin from the other direction. The Crab’s intuitive knowledge of emotion makes Cancer quite adept at manipulating others. The Crab will quickly figure out how to get the Virgin to do what it wants by taking advantage of Virgo’s fundamental insecurity. This will never be blatantly done. Rather, Cancer will simply suggest that the Virgin isn’t holding up its end of the bargain and the hard-working Virgo will redouble its efforts and take on more. In this, the Crab may get more than it bargained for since once the Virgin takes control, it seldom releases it, leaving Cancer in a subordinate position when it intended to dominate.
Cancer and Virgo will come together and build a most satisfying domestic life together. While there are disparities in the emotional makeup of these two, their differences tend to support one another rather than causing turmoil. The Crab and the Virgin are equal in their love of beauty and enjoyment of their comfortable, well-appointed home. They also share values when it comes to loyalty and devotion. Passion isn’t really a noteworthy element in this relationship, but this fact helps the Crab regulate its own emotional caprice. As long as the Virgin curbs its tendency to take over and Cancer refrains from employing its talents at manipulation, this couple will have a very harmonious home.
