Cancer Man and Aquarius Woman Compatibility

Famous Cancer-Aquarius Couples:

The hidden quality in this relationship is a something they share called “zaniness”.  Both parties see the world a little tilted and enjoy their perspectives immensely.  There is some gender bending as well.  The Cancer man is nurturing and caring while the Aquarius woman provides clarity and vision.  As you can see by the famous couples listed, it can be a very positive and enduring relationship.   All three of the couples are synonymous with “great loves”.  Cancer is the most protective sign while Aquarius is the boldest.  Often the man is looking for an intellectual component – a cold shower as it were – which is a big relief to the Aquarius woman who is too often expected to dumb down.   Her intellectual capabilities come not in terms of logic, culture or education. Rather it is her strokes of genius which come in terms of inspiration, bolts out of the blue, those shocking things Aquarians say with which there is no arguing and after which you never look at the world the same way again.  Their deepest connection, however, comes from Aquarius’ desire to lead a conventional lifestyle and Cancer’s ability to provide just that.  Having a big sweet hunk of a guy take care of you, gives Aquarius the perfect cover.  People will think she’s normal, just like other women.

How to Attract a Cancer Man as an Aquarius Woman:  Be opinionated, independent and aloof.  Act like you’ve gotta wear the pants.  When involved as a couple he needs to know that you’ll play Bad Cop to his Good Cop.  It’s essential to his modus operandi.

How to Attract an Aquarius Woman as a Cancer Man:

Trot out your traditional offerings:  home, family, security, emotional comfort, protection and serenity.  It will look like a shrine to her, an altar to everything she considers holy! LOL

Degree of Romance:

This relationship has an etheric sweetness to it which surpasses romanticism because it is quite genuinely streaming from the higher planes.  I swear at times these two can hear the angels sing.

Degree of Passion:

This relationship is open to higher vibrations than passion.  There is a kind of soul harmony music that passes between them, like playing a human harp at just the right pitch.

Degree of Friendship:

These two can be quite devoted to one another especially as there is little ego connection between them.  They can be selfless in each other’s presence like no two other people.

Degree of Marriage:

This seemingly unlikely combination makes an excellent and lasting marriage.  Cancers never want to end anything and Aquarians are among the most loyal of the zodiac.  Both “believe in” marriage.  Cancer thrives on the idea of home (nest) (haven) and comfort while Aquarius craves having what she thinks everyone else has.  Aquarians pay a huge price for their Promethean qualities and often stand alone and exposed in the world they are trying to help.  Cancer gives them a safe place to take respite.

Progression of Relationship:

Nobody does relationships like a Cancer though it may be a bit cloying at time for Ms. Aquarius.  He will make her feel wanted, needed and treasured.  He is a good planner and a thoughtful companion.  Every detail of her comfort will be considered (Is it warm enough for you?  Do you know where the ladies room is?  Should I push the seat back farther?) Once he introduces you to his mother, I mean family, you know you’re in!  Ms. Aquarius will eat up the conventionality, having to pinch herself to believe 1) it’s real and 2) it’s  happening to  her.  At last, she has a “Good Housekeeping” relationship!,


Their sexual union approaches communion, that wordless and perfect merging of two souls in two bodies.

When It’s Over:

It’s not likely to end if both are secure individuals.  If one or the other gets off balance, it can turn pretty cold.  Aquarius tortures Cancer, turning on him and accusing him of being clingy and needy while Cancer accuses Aquarius of not being a real woman.

  1. OK so I’m a cancer male and my girl is an Aquarius but the thing is my girl don’t really know how I feel because of something she done before me. Ok now hear me out ik I’m crazy an ik shouldn’t think like this and I love her but at the same time I hate the fact another guy took her Virginity and idk y but this is what kills me and our relationship would be amazing if I was the first and ik it sounds dumb but they way I look at it the cancer is very emotional and sensitive and it would make me feel better to know I was the guy she chose to take her virginity but when were together we can have those moments were like they say “you can hear the fat lady sing” and its like heaven its amazing and I don’t wanna lose that but I just want an Aquarius virgin and I’ll be happy

    • Go get an Aquarius Virgin then cause there is no turning back and she is only going to put up with you throwing that in her face for so long before she completely walks away

  2. Interesting how this is supposed to be about Cancer men and Aquarius women compatibility, but all of the famous pairings listed are Aquarian men and Cancer women.

    • Thank you for pointing that out. I think they just got duplicated from the other post by mistake.

    i have a question i am an aquarius woman and i have a big time crush on cancer male and im not sure what to do i am friends with him and his sister so i met his family already… ive known him for five years and he wants to be friends with benifits but i want more. what do i do?

  4. I must say; being with a cancer man does have its rewards.

  5. Jen!! Your comment is great!!! I can’t imagine having a “good housekeeping” relationship. That would make me barf!!!! It doesn’t seem this article understands Aquarius women very well. I think I’m attracted to a Cancer man because he is so different than I am. I find it interesting and cute. I would like to start something, but I don’t see it lasting very long. He lives in the country, and I live in the city… both figuratively and literally.

  6. …. Is this a joke? Is this entire site supposed to be satirical or sarcastic? A 9/10? To attract a conservative Cancer man, “acting like you gotta wear the pants” is the way to go? Being aloof will attract him?

    That’s one of the biggest problems in a (doomed) Aquarius/Cancer relationship. He can’t handle how aloof and insensitive she seems, and she feels constantly smothered. He wants to stay home and cuddle, she wants to go out and play. He doesn’t want to experiment in bed, because of the stigma attached to it, and she gets bored easily.

    Aquarius craves what she thinks everyone else has? That’s the exact opposite of an Aquarius! The ruling planet is Uranus, which is all about being unconventional and not wanting to go with the flow. She can’t stand feeling like “just another sheep.” She doesn’t want a “Good Housekeeping” relationship. That’s what HE wants. She wants freedom, independence, and a trusting, secure partner who will let her be who she is, rather than being possessive and jealous.

    I’ve read two compatibility articles on this site so far, and both have been laughably far from the truth. This whole site is a bunch of nonsense.

  7. Sorry, with a stable and secure water sign lol! I’ve dated a Cancer and a Pisces before.

  8. This is appearing to be very true. As long as they are both secure individuals, they could last forever. On top of having my mother and two bestfriends as Cancers. I’ve dated two Cancers, too. One at 17 and one at 29. The relationship at 17 lasted 2 years, but was long distance due to them being in the military. Not much communication, but a connection. Mutual breakup. This Cancer man I’ve been dating for 4 months…. well, I don’t see it ever ending to be honest. First cancer was July 2nd, this one is July 1st. Weird. Never thought I’d be falling in love with a water sign, but yes, he does accomodate to my needs rather nicely.

  9. I’m a Cancer and the women I’m interested is an Aquarius. My best friend introduced me to her. Come to find out recently she liked him … him being an Aquarius also. We spent 4 days back to back seeing each other. After a week she said we shouldn’t hang out as much. Two weeks went by and she texted me. We went out again. She says she wants to be just friends but she keeps sending mixed signals. I spent all day Saturday with her and her friends. We finished the night at a club dancing. During the even talking with one of her friends she comes over and takes my arms and wraps them around her waist. The last song she and I danced to she put her head on my shoulder and closed her eyes. She is an amazing woman. I can honestly say I haven’t felt this way about another person in 13 yrs. No matter how long it takes I’ll be there for her. She had her heart broken pretty bad quite recently pretty badly. I’ll do what I can to fix her broken pieces of her heart with pieces of my own. I’m listening to country music completely out of my norm. She’s an amazing woman with a good heart. I hope she takes the chance on me. I may not deserve her love, but I’m willing to spend the rest of my life proving I’m worthy of her love

    thank you very much for all your true facts of love. god knows everyone’s true destiny not zodiacs. but to you whoever typed this you read my life and my life with my partner. thanks!

  11. Nesianlady99 :

    “..People will think she’s normal, just like other women.” HA!! I love love love this! I am an aquarius woman, my best friend for the rest of my life is a cancer male. We connected instantly off of our dark/skewed/hilarious/totally weird view of the world as 9th graders, and 15 years later everything that fell into place and hasn’t moved since.. just as we plan to keep it. We are loyal and dedicated enough to know that nothing [time, space, location, event, mammal, etc.] will ever come between him and I as friends. We are most definitely connected spiritually; we go for years without seeing eachother, but still have immediate reactions when something is/isn’t right with either one of us.. We call it ‘BFF telepathy’ and its always 100% correct; we’ve never tried to explain it and never had to because really, it doesn’t matter. I love my crabbies <3

    Wow, this post is so spot on!!! I’m an Aquarius girl, but my two best friends are a Scorpio male and a Cancer male. The Scorpio male, we have a love/hate relationship but with the Cancer male (I’ve known him the longest) it is like soul mate material.

    We connect on levels that I didn’t think existed. I’m the god mother for his 2 children, we’ve been there for each other through a divorce and ended relationships, we have the same crazy sense of humour, and talk for hours about the supernatural and aliens, lol. I also have my moon in Cancer and a Scorpio ascendant, so that could explain a lot.

    Unfortunately, I haven’t met any other Cancer males. If I did, I think I would pull him immediately! 😉

  12. This is the first site that ever had a positive outlook … i hope it works and we get back together,, ill try to be as independent and aloof as you said 🙂

  13. Hello . I am an Aquarius girl (feb.4) Who been in love with a cancer guy (july 8) & still is . Weve been going at it for a year and 5 months… a little ups & downs.. It was long distance and i understand as he needed that comfort i was not there physically but i was always there whenever he calls and even make some sacrifice to see him… I went to see him & we had a great ! time however like a weak after he broke up with me.. didnt tell a reason. He tells others he doesnt want to be with me anymore yet shows me different. I want him back tho..I still feel a bond & think we belong together. I met his family & he met some of mine too.. i really dont know what went wrong … but anyways after the break up he keep calling me telling me hes lonely and i guess because i was acting kind of detached he felt rejected.. we havent spoke and now hes interested in a leo 🙁

  14. I am an aquarius woman and care deeply for a cancer man I’m working with, we’ve been working side by side for 8 months. I’ve never felt this kind of connection with any other man – physically, mentally, emotionally. We spend a lot of time at work together and have lunch several days a week, and talk about life a lot. Although we have different backgrounds, there’s something special about how we relate to each other. I recently asked him to do something with me and he told me he would never date a co-worker. He’s leaving my company in January, and I’m afraid he won’t ask me out after he leaves. I think he’s interested, but he has the upper hand because it’s so obvious how I feel about him. He’s very intellectual, but is flirty with women too. There’s another woman co-worker that is interested in him too although he told me he doesn’t feel that way about her. But he doesn’t discourage her texts, emails, phone calls at all. I’m sure it’s quite flattering having two woman going after him at the same time! I’m 10 years older, I don’t know if that’s an issue. We text and email, but lately it seems that I’m the one initiating communication so I’ve decided to back off and be more aloof – for my own dignity. Does this have any chance at working out?

  15. I’m an Aquarius and the Cancer man I dated was quite different from this posting. He actually liked to party & go out a lot and was not clingy nor emotional.
    When its over: I told him & never responded to any of his msgs,calls, or texts

  16. My cancer man was born 15 Jul 1960, sorry for the wrong info.


  17. I am Aqua and he is cancer. I have a interest in making this work.

    He is a busy exec and has a wonderful deli/smoothie business and always busy.

    We are great together. We are both from the same government/military background and understand and can relate to each other. He travels all the time. And when he’s home it’s his business and family and I’m whenever he can fit me in. Phone calls mostly. He knows I’m looking at dating sites because I don’t see it working.

    We both have so much desire for each other but we don’t even have time for this. His strength is great for me. But! How do we both deal with this busy life style and make it work.

    I am into fitness my after work and lunch, weekends and always trying new fitness classes and now biking. I have to do all the work to keep things going and after 2 years I am ready for more of the old fashioned lifestyle. slow and home. Jan 26, 55 (10:42 A.M.) he’s July 15, 1958.

    I’ve lost 170lbs healthy eating and exercise only, cute sexy, turning heads and tell him about it and he gives me attention. He’s tall, dark, sexy, built, runs and plays golf.

    I’ve divorced twice and I’d dated every sign and there is not a perfect match for me. It’s been Scorpio and Leo who are more suited for me and now this Cancer man.

    But he’s the best over every man I’ve ever met for me. As I am not a typical Aquarius, raised by grandparents and former army soldier, 2 grown children/his mother is 80 plus. and he has 2 grown children.

    Thank you.


  18. Cancer men are terrible in bed, enough said.

  19. really love how cancer men are attentive of details and can be very original and quite smart , an emotional intelligence but gosh they’re so shy sometimes or no not shy just fragile , maybe that’s what draws the aquarians to them

  20. Long D. SwayMay 27, 2011 at 3:41 am

    Danny, just be yourself. If she is comfortable and still wanting to hangout, then you’re still in a good position. Words from her mouth will take time, trust me… She will tell you how she feels soon or later.

  21. well i heard aquarius hate being tied down and like looking after people im trying to pull back some of my jealousy
