Famous Cancer-Aquarius Couples:
Nancy and Ronald Reagan, Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner, Anne Morrow and Charles Lindbergh
She will attract him with her feminine ways and eventually drive him crazy with those same wiles. These two signs could not be more different. They are in quincunx relation to one another which makes it very hard to reconcile their differences. The Cancer woman has a very personal feeling connection with a few people and the small world around her, perhaps to include her mother, husband, and children, but not much more. The Aquarius man looks at the world from a broad vista, tends to live one generation in the future, and is concerned about the future of the species more than the progress or any one individual. You see the conflict. This relationship can work if the Cancer woman stays at home and tends the hearth and the Aquarius man puts his energy into a career that is devoted to the bigger picture.
How to Attract a Cancer Woman as an Aquarius Man:
If you want to woo this lovely creature, your best bet is to be very fatherly and to show in as many ways as possible that you would make a good husband and provider. Chances are she’s interested in a home, and she will want to know how soon you will provide it. Her insecurities and anxieties yearn for the calming comfort of a mature man. She’s looking for a shoulder to cry on and someone to hold her tight at night.
How to Attract an Aquarius Man as a Cancer Woman:
No one can control or predict an Aquarian. There isn’t much you can do if he isn’t interested in you already. If you have caught his eye, don’t crowd him or demand too much of his time and attention. The Aquarius man will be willing to give you plenty of that if you win his heart, but during the courtship stages it could be a turnoff.
Degree of Romance: This can be a very romantic combination because the gender identity in each case is so strong. Aquarians tend to be very manly men and Cancers are the ultimate feminine energy. She will play the damsel in distress and he will feel good about solving her problems so easily with his brilliant mind.
Degree of Passion:
Somehow the protectiveness required of him in this relationship brings out about all the passion he can muster.
Degree of Friendship:
There is little to base a friendship on in this relationship. The Cancer woman is interested in bonded intimacy, such as parent, husband, or children. The Aquarius man, although he has a reputation of being so friendly, is usually pretty much alone in the world. Neither sign particularly values friendship, and neither has the skills to develop it. But there is no need for friendship in this relationship because it is so strong in other ways.
Degree of Marriage:
The combination of Aquarius man and Cancer woman makes a fine conventional marriage, particularly if he is 10 or more years older than her. Cancer women have a childlike need for protection and security, and Aquarius will easily shoulder the responsibilities of a family. Their love may be very focused on their children — for her, as a means of nurturing, and for him, as a window to the future. Both are a little idiosyncratic in their own way. We know a couple like this where the wife sleeps in the bedroom with the kids, and the husband sleeps on a cot in the hall. Well, it works for them.
Progression of Relationship:
The Aquarius man will be very business-like in moving the relationship forward if he is seriously interested. If not, there is nothing you can do about it. The Cancer woman will feel surprisingly secure as the relationship develops because, relative to other men, the Aquarian man is so transparent. It can quickly evolve into cozy nights in front of the TV or her doing the laundry while he gets on the Internet. Conversation is not the strong point of either, yet they are able to develop much rapport.
The Aquarian man will tend to draw great emotional support from having sex with a Cancer woman. It may make him, in fact, insatiable. In sex with her, he finds everything that was missing in his life. She is quite receptive to him and silently understands what he needs. Sex between these two is a very intimate and positive thing.
When It’s Over:
This relationship between an Aquarius man and a Cancer woman can have a kind of cruel ending if they let themselves drift apart. Aquarius can turn and walk away on a dime leaving poor Cancer clinging helplessly to the illusion that he will return. Aquarians are famous for sudden endings, and love is no exception to the rule. Cancer will never understand and will be very badly hurt, but my guess is, no matter how long they were together, he made it worthwhile.
