Cancer Man and Libra Woman Compatibility

Famous Cancer-Libra Couples: Bodhi and Jenna Elfman, Sam Mendes and Kate Winslett, Dan Akroyd and Carrie Fisher, EB and Katherine White.

This relationship invites negative polarization along gender bent lines — that is, she winds up acting like a poor imitation of a man while he acts like a poor imitation of a woman.  They can be crabby and bossy, making each other miserable.  it helps if they fall into roles where he can be nurturing and she gets to be business like.  She should run things, being better at it by nature, but both signs are cardinal and neither is likely to give up control.  If he tries to exercise the male prerogatives she can do a particularly ugly version of passive aggressive.  This is also a prime example of the elemental dictum, “Air tortures water.”  The more hurt and vulnerable Cancer, the water sign becomes, the more distant and cold the air sign Libra gets, finally approaching the point of real cruelty to Cancer’s sensitivities.

How to Attract a Cancer Man as a Libra Woman:  Show him how you like to take control.   He’ll hate you for it later but it’s a real turn on at the start.  He likes a clean, “fresh” look, soft colors, a little fluff with the Board Room Aire.  You can be such an intriguing combination of yin and yang.  He will appreciate what a good conversationalist you are since he lacks that skill set.

How to Attract a Libra Woman as a Cancer Man:  Compliments will get you everywhere.  They don’t even need to make sense.  Most of all, tell her how beautiful she Is.

Degree of Romance:   No two people will ever try harder to play the romantic parts but I’ll save you the frustration.  You don’t really go well together that way.

Degree of Passion:   Can’t go here either.

Degree of Friendship:  This is out, too.

Degree of Marriage:  After an initial period of infatuation, you’re likely to fight about everything, never realizing what’s underneath it is that you both need to run the show.  Libra’s normal diplomacy and ability to compromise is predicated on her being in charge.  If she begins to sense (after the honeymoon is over), that this never was and never will be the basis of the relationship, she will be harder to get along with than her Evil Twin Aries.  Her abrasive pushiness, constant nagging and passive aggressive ploys like “Oh I’m so sorry.   I didn’t mean to have your cat neutered while you were gone” will drive him into the most childish pout that ever unbecame a grown man.   He may also display whininess and petulance as well as getting clingy just to get on her nerves.  Anyone in the presence of a Libra long enough is going to find their own version of passive aggression.

Progression of Relationship:   At this point, the beginning, they will be conducting the “perfect” relationship.  He will be doing everything his mother told him to do and she will be Miss Goodie Two Shoes.  Later on out comes the battle axe and screams of “That’s not FAIR.”  These two are also voted most likely to be heard saying those four nasties, “I told you so!”  They are pleading to an imaginary court.  She expects Athena, Goddess of Just Wars, to come to her aid, while he is secretly trying to invoke the Furies.  When they finally realize it’s all in their own head – there is no Greek Chorus — no one else cares, is listening or hears — then It’s over.

Sex:  Sex can be complicated by paybacks and iou’s.  It’s hard to imagine how complicated something so natural can become.  The chemistry between these two seems to produce withholds and sandbagging which are most likely to be expressed in the bedroom.

When It’s Over:  Years later she’ll still be keeping score while his mother never misses a chance to tell him “I told to it would never work out.”

    I Get along just fine with my cancer man He’s sweet listens understands its not when u were born or ur sign its about how they want to view life and treat ppl

  • Kerby says:

    I am a Libra/Scorpio Rising…he is a Cancer…till this day I will always be thankful for (and he does too) a deep, caring & nurturing friendship. Girls…the “trick to a Mans Heart is thru his stomach”! How true. I fed him, was his friend whilst he was unwell & my neighbour. Will never forget his smile when he returned my plate! lol We have each moved away from each other but still have contact. Life is great!

    I’m married and this is totally true. I’m a libra with a cancer rising but we still fight! Cancers are too sensitve about everything!

  • Stephanie says:

    Also, Sam Mendes is a Leo not a Cancer. Kate White is a Virgo. Dan Akroyd is married to Donna Dixon who is a Leo and Carrie Fisher is married to Paul Simon, a Libra.

    I’m a libra woman, just broke things off with my cancer. One word- Ugh!! He was so boringggggggg all he ever wanted to do was stay home and watch games and drink with his friends. And who was stuck cleanin? -me! I’m an extremely social person and this was just ridiculous. On top of that he was very irresponsible, I had to constantly tell him to get things done! I felt like his mom or something. I’m glad that’s over.

    I have a ton of female friends that are Libra, one of which is a very good friend of mine. I’ve figured out how Libras work, which is perhaps hard for the normal Cancer man to take up, so here’s some advice.

    The most important thing I’ve found out about women under Libra is that they hate being smothered with attention. They like their space and they really like their independence. Libra is one of the most detached signs of the zodiac along with Aquarius and it’s always best to always really be at an arms length. Also, justice is #1 to Libra so be fair, on time, etc. And be real, I can’t stress that enough – feel free to disagree with her when you see fit, in fact she’ll like you even more for having your own opinion.

    Libra women love people, so it’s good to always just let her socialize. That’s her element. In this regard it’s like dating a Sag, they socialize and even flirt with other men but have you as their #1. The scale may have an inanimate exterior but they really do care deep down. Also, be prepared for flip floping of ideas/plans/etc. much in the style of a scale.

    Would I ever give this relationship a chance? Sure. All because libra women are not alike. One Libra woman I know is loud, parties hard and partakes in risky behavior while another one is very quiet and bashful, and is more of the type to crawl into bed on a friday night. It can work nicely given the right Cancer and the right Libra.

  • Lindsey says:

    I’m Lindsey (libra) I’ve been with my man derek (cancer) for over 7 years, he is the best thing that ever happened to me! We may disagree from time to time but we almost never fight, so I feel we are the perfect match!! So it’s possible, so don’t judge a man ( women) by there sign if u love someone and they treat u right that’s all that’s all that matters! You can’t help who u love!!!! Peace,love& happiness

    I don’t entirely agree with this rating. SOME Cancer men I actually like a lot. Oh yeah, they can be annoyingly moody and overly sensitive, but somehow (in me, at least) they bring out a tenderness in me that I never feel with other men. I have moon in Leo though, so maybe that’s why?
    However! 2 things that really bother me about Cancer men: 1. They’re indiscriminate woman-lovers. They’re just fascinated with women in general, and love their company (I think this is especially true for MOON in Cancer men), and that just doesn’t fly with me. I have to be the absolute, number one, unrivaled woman. Period. 2. Some Cancer men are irritatingly dreamy and spaced out and lack a certain common sense. Like, they lose stuff all the time and forget (really, truly, just forget) to reply to texts, etc. Maybe it just comes with the softness.
    Still, I’d personally give this combo an 8/10. At least.

  • hmmmmm says:

    very interesting. i’ve been reading a lot of compatibility ratings on each sign and this is the lowest one i’ve seen yet.

    rating of 2 for cancer man and libra woman? the reading of this article is just horrible for cancer men to get with libra women.

  • Debbie says:

    I have never read anything so negative…there was not one good point made about them as a couple or as individuals…i have read many,many compatibility charts and not one of them said anything remotely close to this… i know from other charts,books,etc and from my own experience, that while libra and cancer have many differences, they can also be one of the best matches of the zodiac signs..i mean wow was this person having a crappy day when they wrote this or what? NO passion, NO romance, NOT even friendship..i think all of the comments AFTER were much more accurate and FAIR..just my libran two cents =)

  • Debbie says:

    My cancer man is the complete and total opposite of me and although it does drive me nuts that he has trouble seeing things from anothers point of view and we do clash ALOT lol these things are also why i love him and need him..he is everything i lack and vice versa..together (on a good day) we make one complete well rounded person..yes we argue and when we do its horrible and the worst ever…but when its good its the best ever and worth it all…

  • crystal says:

    I have to say that yes cancer men seem to be very seltered within themselves but the cancer guy I am seeing knows just what to say to calm me down when I’m outta wack. Its all about compromise with us. Sometimes I take the back seat and other times he takes the back seat. We seem to get along pretty well besides his distant behavior and lack of commnication at times. I can be Moody so I can deal with Moody as long as its communicated to me that you need some time. I’m laid back and we are great together although we clash at times. Whoever wrote must have ran into a libra in distress lol wow! We love to know that your loyal and we love to feel secured.

  • KH says:

    I had a libra girlfriend before.. we were riding a roller coaster like any other relationships.. I gave her all the attention and patience that she always wanted.. we were planning to get married after we graduate in college.. I truly loved and trusted like no other..

    until I caught her cheating on me through one of my friends.. my friend saw her on a bar and took a picture of her kissing with some guy he then followed them when they went inside a motel.. He showed the picture to me, after seeing it my heart was crushed.. I felt like everything was falling apart.. hurt, anger and pure rage coursed through my soul. what the hell!.. I thought To all cancer men out there, watch out for libras!.. they are players, cheaters and liars!..

  • biggs says:

    I’m a Cancer male. N oh boy does it hit right on the head. Been with my libra for 5 yrs. N the last 3 have been hell. Lol. But the sex is amazing. Passion yup, all there. Libra if you don’t give her space or respect that she diente know how to ask for, then all hell will break loose. They like you take control in the beginning, but after u wonder what happened. Unless u work as a partner up front n discuss roles you both will play it will never work.

  • Seater6 says:

    I’m a Cancer Man with Capricorn Rising and I am dealing with one of those Wild Libras that burst out loud with a lot of laughter, but she is totally in a struggle to decided if she should take a chance on me or listen to her co-workers opinion about me and they are threatening her to stay away from me at the same time, and that makes me feel small because she gave me so much attention and love in the first couple of months, then she went cold because her boss pulled me the office and said ‘she’s not interested’ and I said to my self ‘How Could this be? I knew then that might be lying, but maybe she really did say that I don’t really know at this time, but I can say that I found out that she has been looking on my Facebook Page and I write messages for her to see since I can send her a friend request because all of her co-workers on there. She responds with messages about me but I am still not convince if she will eventually stop caring about what her boss and coworkers say and finally say I want my Cancer. I really hope she choose me and not give up on me because they have kept her away from me for 4 months straight and I am so scared that I might loose you for good. Because time can kill all the passion and Love especially if someone else is making sure you don’t have that Libra Women Love, in which I so desperately need. Somebody please give me so help!!!! So that I can get to her…

  • Brittany says:

    Didn’t even last 6 months with a cancer man
    Too insecure, did not want to go out and do anything, and I couldn’t have guy friends. This is the worst match.

  • Librasview says:

    I am a Libra woman with a Cancer man for 6 years. Many things in this article are very accurate. We are very close friends, we verybrarely argue, Cancer gives that protection we Libras need to feel. However, the initial charm and passion fades very quickly with this match. We lack the chemistry to have deep connections on a spirtual/soul level. Libra often can feel overwhelmed with him. They are great friends.
