Aries Man and Cancer Woman Compatibility


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.  Learn more here.


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:   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.

Our Rating: 10/10

  • Chaitanya says:

    Hi rose, after reading your text my love for one cancer girl has become more stronger. I have told her couple of time via letter and face to face that she is my dream girl and i love her. I want to tell her again but by recodring my feelings and sending it is an audio. Being cancer women how do you find this idea? I proposed her on nd nov 2010 and i want to send this audio on 2nd nov 11

  • sana says:

    yes i am in love with Aries man & i am cancer..he loves me like a 2year child..every time he protect me… give me felling i am free to do any thing.. understand me.. i love you so much…..

  • Rob says:

    This does fill with me hope (and I’m not an astrology person at all – but I needed some kind of reassurance somehow). My prospective Cancer lady is the same age as me (we’re both 47) and we’ve been around the block a bit. She’s had some big troubles emotionally recently, but last night we both admitted that we think a lot of each other.

    Love is a loaded word, but I haven’t felt so beguiled by a lady in years (and she is most definitely a lady). We laugh all the time we’re together and like, and want, a simple life. Whether it lasts beyond these opening moments (we’ve known each four months or so) who knows?

    But right now, I’m dizzy when I’m with her, and although she’s been ultra cautious thus far (for her own very personal reasons), I think she’s beginning to feel it too. Wish us luck. :)

  • Crab.gal says:

    I’m 110% sure its The opposite sign attraction…at it really works!!just as what The article says,aries boy n cancer gal’s communication is made in heaven!!they both attract to each other at The first sight…how do i know??my man is an aries:^*

  • cancer-aries hope! says:

    This might be the first time i see saying how aries and cancer are compatible! seriously! it realy does gives me hope between me and my boyfriend. they just don’t realise somehow even if aries might be a player… every player one day wakes up and looks for a real woman who is a cancer who can take care of him.

  • nene says:

    So much I can say about this Aries man i know….reunited again after about 8 years. He’s everything I could ask for in a man (an so much more). I hope this is the real deal…..its been a long time coming, but i know a change is gone some…..

  • Aries-Cancer Love Hope says:

    I like my school time cancerian girl, we met on internet 12 years after the school.
    Both hurted by somebody in love and looking for love and answers to the question’s given by love.
    we started talking and i started falling in love for her, refreshing our school memories.

    The intimacy between the two spirits of Cancer & Aries is admiring, it heals the deepest
    hurt wounds. We both got healed after being together in this virtual world of internet and
    just chatting.She then distanced herself from me as soon as i indicated “i have started falling
    inn”..

    I guess because of her family religious/caste systems :( , she is very defensive now for her family.
    She gets back in her shell(Home) and has gone in hiding, keeping silence..

    i loved the lady very much and expressed my feelings and wiilingness to marry her after two years,
    as she pulled herself back sometime after chatting(i holded back my feelings).
    She asked me to open up now and i gave her the truthfull part with more determination..

    i don’t feel cancer lady will be able to make a daring step and come out of her shell to be independent
    with me, she loves her Mom too much to behave in this manner.she would instead ask me to be her brother
    to protect everybody and keep his family happy :| (Love is all the scrifices :| )
    (still comments are appreciated for the hopeless heart :| )

  • kiim says:

    i dont know if this one will work. (as far as i know aries and cancer is one of the worst match in zodiacs compatibility well anyway i guess it depends on the gender)

    so i have this guy friend and his aries.. i like him, he’s sweet – kind – and friendly,, he’s kinda touchy in a way that he hugs random girl-friends of him,. so im confused if he likes me or its just his “nature”..
    i wanna know more about him, but im so awkward when he’s around i keep on ignoring him whenever we see each other at school and then one time we accidentally meet at my prof’s room i know he saw me i swear because he seats beside my prof and as far i remember he stare a bit and then he goes outside the room and he ignored me.

    he used to hug and chat me whenever we see each other at school. so im bitter when ignored me that time. -__-

    help i want to move on. -__- i dont know his actions, i dont know if he likes me or he’s just a good touchy play safe guy? i dont know.. T^T help

  • Aries-Cancer Love Hope says:

    Hi Kiim,

    Being Aries guy i would say ask him the reason of his indifference behaviour.
    you anyhow don’t wish to loose a friend, just have sometime and space and ask him to share his thoughts.

    he should open up…
    as soon as he opens up you’ll find your reason.

  • nicole says:

    well i broke up with my boyfriend that was aries and im cancer but for some crazy reason i cant forget him and i want him back but i dont know what to do

  • Aries-Cancer Love Hope says:

    Nicole,

    Just act for him, communicate in anyway your emotion of affection..
    He should then hop back, you both should accept the silliness in point of breaking up together..

    wish you Moon luck lady…

  • susan says:

    cancer girl speaking here.
    my aries used to text me often, drunk call me sometimes and just talk to me.
    i drive him and myself to school every morning now and when this semester started is when all this started declining.
    now, when im with him, he acts protective, always worrying about my health and if im doing ok and all that good stuff, but now he wont text or call.. he eventually always finds ways to talk to me outside of our car rides but not as much as he used to. what confuses me is how he is acting. if a guy acts protective and acts as if he likes you, wouldnt he want to talk to you more rather than stop that part of communication? help please.

  • Sofe says:

    I need help. This article gave me hope. Imma cancer gal & boy am I crazy about this Aries guy. But there has been trouble idk what to do. I think he hates me. He blocked me on Facebook and speed dumped bout me but I still can’t forget him & believe me, I’ve tried. I don’t know if he thought I was annoying or if he just found out I liked him and bagged off. I want to regain my friendship with him but I haven’t talked to him since 2010! I don’t have alot of courage but I need advice so what do I do?

  • Moongirl says:

    Oh I cannot get enough of that Aries man. What I realize is that they are Macho but still Insecure. It seems to me when they finally fall in love with you they get insecure, also that they get mad with themselves. The Macho ram cant believe that they have fallen for us. So we the crab girl we really try to hold back on how we feel because we dont want to frightenten them away when actually we can eat him up lovingly. our holding back actually draws him in more and our natural charm melts him. So like the way we protect ourselves they do so by withdrawing as well. But for them they relive this feeling every time they see us. Love her but mad at myself….Love her but mad at myself

  • Jewelz says:

    I’m a cancer and the guy I like is an aries. He stares at me constantly. When I walk near him he just looks at me but doesn’t say anything. No hi, no nothing. I’m too shy to say anything! I basically run away emotionally when he’s around. I remem one time he saw me from a distance and ran to the area where I was headed. I looked at him in shock but still we said nothing. Maybe he’s as shy as I am.

  • britta says:

    Ima cancer women and had a aries
    Boyfriend that I still think about and love he was so sweet in the beginning he was everything I wanted in a boyfriend but then he begin 2
    Show me his other side he was very disrespectful he beat on me was way 2 demanding he always wanted 2 argue with me and he lied so much it would never work

  • 6caNcer9 says:

    cancer women have a hard time expressing ourselves because it leaves us so vunerable and open to rejection.Once u let that guard down and expressions start to flow all of our “power” is depleated. we really need a patient man

  • Aries-Cancer Love Hope says:

    “Love comes when manipulation stops;
    when you think more about the other person than about his or her reactions to you. When
    you dare to reveal yourself fully. When you dare to be vulnerable.”

    “Love is not love until love’s vulnerable.”

  • Aries-Cancer Love Hope says:

    As far as i know myself being an aries, very patient indeed…..
    can wait for you long enough to amaze you.., what i fear is your attention span which can move to other guy cause of mood swings :( ..

  • Cancer in love w an Aries says:

    I have had 2 experiences w Aries men. The first was wonderful til he began lying to me due to his own inner demons. We lasted one year, yet I still care for him today. The passion we shared was amazing!!!

    My 2nd is happening right now & its what fairy tales are made of!! He came into town to see my friend (his sis), we met, spent a mere 4 days together & are now over 2,000 miles apart making plans to relocate bc we can’t stand not having each other. We are both what the other wants. I believe in him, he showers me w flattery & attention….we want to take care of each other. He IS my future!!! We’re both in 30′s…this is real.

  • james says:

    i dont think aries man are made to cancer woman
    my dad was married to one (my mom) and the problem was about affection and my mom being clingy and needy my dad was married to my mom for 5 years then they divorced , know my dad is married to another aries woman they fight alot but i think my dad is happy and my stepmom is also happy

  • kat says:

    I have met an amazing Aries man, he’s never been married, and being a Cancer woman, am used to taking care of people, children (was married for 20 years), and adore the safe feeling I have around him. He stops me in my tracks. We’re total opposites. I just can’t get him to open up to me. It’s frustrating. I want to share, but don’t because I will protect my shell, and I think he knows it. I just don’t know how to get him to open up about his feelings, other than alcohol and that’s not good. Any advice?

  • Sue Z says:

    @CancerInLove, I’ve been there honey. That just sounds like a perfect love story.. I’ve been participating on this site since 2009…but it wasn’t until recently that someone showed me this Zodiac Matchmaking site. It’s literally feels amazing to date someone who also believes in the zodiac. It’s worth a look

  • Jason says:

    Been reading your posts and I just thought I would share that I found a cool dating site based on zodiac, and has been pretty helpful for me! Being an Aries male it isn’t easy to find a very compatible girl that keeps my interest but this site has a cool compatibility score and details about your match. Anyway I liked it so hopefully it help you guys too.

    An Aries/Cancer combination is extremely passionate coming from both sides. Woooo Weeeee

  • 10/10 says:

    what the hell?

    Aries/Cancer gets 10/10??

    wow. I’ve learned something new.

  • Aries Man says:

    Well, I wouldn’t say this is the typical male breadwinner/female homemaker combination at all – my Cancer girl is a pretty strong cookie actually, and earns her own way. Our love life is great too, thanks very much – you just need a little sensitivity and patience. If you’re an Aries guy and you don’t have the patience for a Cancer though, check out this dating site to find your perfect match. I really enjoyed trying it out – although I’m staying with my Cancer beauty :)
