Famous Aries-Cancer Couples:
Betty and Gerald Ford; Jennifer Garner and Scott Foley; Marsha Mason and Neil Simon
This is a surprisingly good combination of two people who are willing to be very devoted to one another. Both signs have leadership ability, which might ordinarily be a problem – who’s the boss? – but it is more likely that they will cherish one another and care deeply about the other’s well-being and security. If children result from the union, these two may make remarkably good parents. There is a likelihood of a role reversal which can be thrilling to today’s couple.
How to Attract a Cancer Man as an Aries Woman:
You can turn yourself loose and do anything you want to attract your Cancer male because he will bask in your attention and construe it as nurturing. Of course, a favorite thing of all Cancers is a good meal, so dining out should be fun. He would also probably like to cook for you (maybe you could do the shopping). A way to really curry favor with this guy is to help him with his plans for the future, even just for tomorrow. He will appreciate your courage and confidence, and whereas other men might think you are pushy, he will construe your engagement in his life as a sign of your interest and commitment. Above all be nice to his mother and relatives.
How to Attract an Aries Woman as a Cancer Man:
You may have trouble getting her attention since she’s basically looking for the opposite of what you can provide. You’re Mr. Security. She’s Ms. Excitement. She has big plans and a lot of balls in the air and though she is (frighteningly) efficient things occasionally come crashing in around her. If you stand beside her at one of those moments offering constructive help and the benefit of your organizational skills, she’ll start to see the value in your relationship. Cancer men are emotionally tough (at least outwardly) and very funny, two qualities that the lady ram will appreciate. Hide your sensitive side for as long as possible. She’s looking for someone to go on big adventures. That requires thick skin. As long as you use your shell, you should be fine. And give her a couple of chances to realize you’re interested in her. Aries doesn’t do subtle.
Degree of Romance:
This combination is not particularly romantic. The emphasis is on taking care of one another and daily acts of devotion. These two signs are both noted for anticipating others’ needs. Aries may be thrilled and surprised at how a Cancer man provides for her while seeming to read her mind. He may show up with a new software program he knows she needs or be willing to send her mother a plane ticket to come for a visit. This might be a little hard on the ram’s independence, but on the other hand it leaves her free to pursue things that you find more interesting. The Cancer man may take a while to warm up to her bold courtship gestures, but over time her sustained efforts to keep their love alive will become endearing.
The combination of fire and water give depth to sexuality as an expression of really sincere sentiments. A Cancer male is willing to connect at a very deep level, and she can provide exactly the contrast that he needs to keep him from drowning in his own feelings.
Degree of Friendship:
There can be a very sincere basis for friendship between these two. Think of Eeyore and Winnie the Pooh walking hand in hand through life. They can share at a very special level of empathy, respecting each other’s privacy and shielding one another against a stormy world. Aries’ courage can provide a welcome shelter to the Cancer man’s constant fear of rejection. She’s willing to fight for him. That will go a long way towards cementing his eternal loyalty. In return, he will enjoy his role as protector.
Degree of Marriage:
This is a good combination for marriage. Any long term relationship relies heavily on the ability of two people to act toward one another with sustained kindness and patience, both of which should be abundant with this pair. These two bring out the best in each other, and they would make especially good parents.
Progression of Relationship:
There is a very nice interplay between Aries and Cancer. Aries pushes for progress. Cancer pushes for security and nurturing. The two take turns advancing and consolidating ground, then advancing again and consolidating more ground. This leads to a good foundation, and at the same time avoids the possibility of stagnation.
Beauty tames the beast as the Cancer male brings out the sweet child in Aries. Sex involves a lot of touching and playfulness. The Aries girl may actually learn the meaning of foreplay. There’s a tendency to linger longer between the sheets and fall asleep in each others’ arms.
When It’s Over:
It is likely that the Aries girl will have to recognize the need to end it and have the courage to do so. The Cancer man may tolerate all sorts of shortfalls rather than face an ending. As the ram wraps things up, he may turn clingy and even whiny. Aries, pull the band aid off as quickly as you can. Dragging it out just prolongs the pain.
