Famous Cancer-Capricorn Couples:
Prince William and Kate Middleton, Tom Cruise and Mimi Rogers
This is a classic example of role reversal, and it can work beautifully. If there are children involved, the man may stay home and nurture the kids while the woman provides the income and discipline. Keep this in mind while dating. The Capricorn woman will definitely wear the pants, but in exchange the Cancer man will finally get the emotional stability he’s been looking for. Cancer men are very comforting and sensitive to others’ feelings, whereas a Capricorn woman is a hard-working business machine. These two — the Cancer man and Capricorn woman — need each other very badly.
How to Attract a Cancer Man as a Capricorn Woman:
You are probably not used to attracting anybody because you’re too busy at work. This is no exception. You will probably have to make the first move. You are not used to acknowledging your needs, preferring to maintain a stoic approach to life and relationships. If a Cancer man has caught your eye, it is likely because of his kindness and mercy, so why don’t you play a little bit to his sympathy? It won’t hurt to mention your long hours and to flash a few designer labels at him so he gets the idea that in exchange for his emotional support you can provide financially, at least for yourself — possibly for both of you. Once he starts to court you, I hope you will soften your business edge and give him encouragement because you are not the only one who is insecure sometimes.
How to Attract a Capricorn Woman as a Cancer Man:
You might notice how hard-working the Capricorn woman is and provide some respite. You can say the 8 magic words, “Let me take you away from all this.” You might have to remind her to take meal breaks and to keep her mind off business for a few hours a day (even if she’s not working she will do whatever she does in a business-like manner). No matter how tough her façade, she is very shy and insecure. You know how to handle someone like that better than anyone. You have a soothing personality, Cancer, and you can take the edge off the cold, cruel world she lives in.
Degree of Romance:
A Cancer man will bring something very close to romance into the relationship . He will naturally tend to do such loving things as rubbing your shoulders or feet, offering to pick your kids up from school, detailing your car while you’re at a business meeting, and having dinner ready — at his home or yours — which is not exactly romantic, but it sure will be welcome. Cancer men are very thoughtful. They are always looking at you and yours needs and trying to anticipate them. And they do a pretty good job of it.
Degree of Passion:
Passion is not exactly the first dish on the menu. Cancer can provide a lot of emotional intensity, but it is more like a pleasant ocean wave than a storm at sea. Cancer provides a soft, billowy pillow on which to rest your head, dear hard-working Capricorn. You can assume that he will passionately try to meet your every need — spoken and unspoken.
Degree of Friendship:
These two can be dear friends because they learn to rely so much on each other. Together their pace is a little slower than the rest of the world and they are a little more solicitous of each other’s well-being. Cancer is known as the Great Rescuer of the zodiac, so dependable is his protective instinct. He represents a safe harbor for Capricorn. That’s the kind of friendship they have. He understands what she will not put into words for anybody, for any reason, at any time.
Degree of Marriage:
As long as the role reversal works, this is a quintessential marriage.
Progression of Relationship:
You haven’t been cared for until you’ve been cared for by a Cancer. The courtship is the same as anything he does — he will be solicitous of your feelings, he will pay attention to what you like and don’t like, he will do the best he can to please you, he will care for you in word and deed (that is to say demonstratively), he will notice your menu choices, check up on how your car is working, care sincerely about your kids, and listen patiently while you complain about your boss. You, Capricorn, who need no one, may find yourself really drawn to this caring person, and willing to see him much more frequently than you can ever imagine, until he grows on you like ivy on a brick wall.
There is a real affinity between these two people emotionally. That makes sex a special bond. It is a place where Cancer can express his feelings, and Cancer can receive nurturing that is unique in their life. They will tend to be very private about expressing affection for one another and require a proper environment that is safe and secure. Neither sign is promiscuous or adventuresome, but together they will enjoy grazing in the same green pastures for the rest of their lives.
When It’s Over:
No, no, no. It should never end. Probably the only thing that could drive these two apart is financial problems, and with a little maturity they can be overcome. Consider the role reversals if necessary. In other words, Capricorn, if you are complaining that he doesn’t make enough money, then maybe you should try to strap on a suit and give it a go. This would probably fit your personalities better.
