Famous Aries-Cancer Couples:
Ewan McGregor and Eve Mavrakis, Warren Beatty and Carly Simon
This is the quintessential gender stereotypically correct combination, a manly man with a girlie girl. Eeeewwwww. Each is bound to have lots of suitors so the courtship is an important period, not only of getting to know one another but of establishing the high quality partner that is being presented. Usually male relatives get involved as proponents on both sides. Aries is so strong with Steve Harvey’s Three Ps (if – and it’s a big if – he’s interested): Providing, Protecting and Professing.

Cancer is the quintessential maiden in distress, lady in waiting and potential storybook PrincessBride all wrapped up in one. How can they resist one another? As the years go by, they have to guard against getting lost in their roles of HeMan and Dependee but at first it is just divine.
How to Attract an Aries Man as a Cancer Woman:
Go ahead and play helpless. Ask him to carry the groceries. Wait for him to open doors. Cry on his big shoulders. Get him to open the pickle jar and swoon over how strong he is. Most of all, sob at sad movies and fuss over every baby you see. Talk about how important it is for someone to find their perfect partner.
How to Attract a Cancer Woman as an Aries Man:
She’s going to find you hard to resist. You can pretty much sweep her off her feet with attention and appreciation. She is the girlie-girl of the zodiac who needs and welcomes your attention so please go ahead and be the old fashioned hero you want to be. THIS gal will appreciate it!
Degree of Romance:
Aries has a very special brand of romanticism – it comes naturally to him — which is well received by the moonlight lady. Indeed, no one is more romantic than an Aries in love.
Degree of Passion:
Nor is anyone more passionate than an Aries in love! The natural receptivity of the Cancer lady (read Dion Fortune’s “The Sea Priestess”) brings out every bit of what he’s got.
Degree of Friendship:
They fall too completely into gender roles to be friends.
Degree of Marriage:
A perfect marriage, given the right Aries and the right Cancer! Double that if they are both under 25 or she is ten years younger than him.
Progression of Relationship:
Aries loves the courtship ritual. If he’s serious about you, he’ll show it right away by his attention and desire to impress you. He’ll brag about you to his many male friends. He will do the most incredible things for you to prove his love, like hassling the DMV for days about where is your license renewal or finding someone reasonable to fix your automatic sprinklers – all voluntary. He just can’t stand to see you helpless against the world. Aries is a born closer so expect some real momentum as he touch all the bases on his way over to home.
Sex between these two is like the way it was taught in hygiene or sex education class. Aries and Cancer consider it so amazing they are even doing it, they don’t need all the bells and whistles. The Church Lady would approve. There’s a lot of demureness to Cancer and Aries doesn’t mind waiting to win the prize. [The longer she holds out, the greater he thinks the prize is.] This is the combo we vote Most Likely to Wait for Their Wedding Night and to Use the Missionary Position Ever After.
When It’s Over:
If it ends, he’ll still be protective of her, handling the court process, making sure she has her own cc and car insurance, even her own lawyer (!) and he will be available to take the kids to their dental checkups if she can’t handle it with her new job. He is voted the Best Divorced Dad in the Zodiac.
