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 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.

  1. The confidence of an Aries man amazes and definitely attracts me to them always.Same with Sag and Leo men.I just never get enough of these fire signs.Dated a Scorpio man once but he was so quick to get angry and more sensitive than l was.Im cancerian but I just can’t stand the sensitivity of the Pisces and Scorpio men.I love that when I’m with Aries or Sag i feel so confident and independent not clingy at all.I actually enjoy how they chase me with so much enthusiasm lol.It just becomes a chasing game I never want to end coz it’s just amazing .Oh well.I just wish other cancer women can play the hard to get game with these men and they will worship the ground you walk on lol .These boys just want a good traditional chase.Laugh at their aggressiveness when they pursue you and run and even faster and they will keep chasing.Always come up with new things to do in the bedroom and outside like a weekend away for two.Go partying together socialise a bit more with your friends while they are away so you won’t nag them when you feel lonely.Its just an amazing life with these men.Make them a little jealous once in while ..

  2. I don't think so!April 27, 2016 at 6:01 pm

    I totally don’t agree with this. My Aries man was very self centered, selfish and had serious anger issues. When he decided to divorce after 18 yrs he didn’t even talk about it first. He wasn’t protective, the only handling of the court process was to benefit himself, canceled bank accounts, spent a lot of our money on himself, didn’t care if our son had a place to live and food to eat, much less me. He was terrible.

  3. Am Cancerian and am engaged with an Aries man, at first d relationship seems perfect like made in heaven, right now am beginning to av a rethink cos he hardly makes me happy, we fight and argue a lo, he doesn’t get his priorities right with me. He’s been selfish lately. Am having a second thought if I truly wanna move further in dis relationship. We’ve dated for 2 1/2 years now.

  4. my aries man is loyal to me unlike another aries i know. me, i’m glad we are know each other to give each other space to be alone. im cancer but eh unfit to me but my rich imagination lol

  5. Married to an Aries for 21 1/2 years. Recently divorced! He cheated (more than once I might add)and after trying for 5 & 1/2 years after I found out about the last one I can prove, I had to call it quits. He became very mean and physical with me once he knew there was no way of fixing the relationship. There is so much truth to this post in the fact that he will be protective and help with things in the end. He give me way more than I ever expected. and is still helping me with things. But we fought a lot about petty things. He could never let anything go. Always bringing up past arguments and who started it and why. Totally exausting!! I’m 2 months out and at peace finally.. Good luck to anyone that attracts an Aries. I’m glad mine is done!!!

  6. This is really the very first time I found article about relationship blessing for cancer and arie. Water and Fire, so different, combination is never meant to work out. I didn’t believe it untill I tried. Oh, what a man! Macho baby! Had drive me crazy with constant fights, arguments over same things over and over again. Needy for attantion, affection, and sex. There are 2 types of Aries men: one type cheating all the time another is very devoted one. I got loyal one. But regardless of this they are known to be assholes with big mouth, that’s Aries initial nature;)

    • They are water and fire, but both signs being cardinal gives them a common orientation which I think helps drive the relationship. They may have different elemental natures, but they can get on the same page which is important for taking a relationship through time.
