When Cancer and Capricorn make a love match, it’s a celestial pairing of great tenacity and determination. Capricorn is focused on logic, on being down-to-earth and real; Cancer brings a charge of emotional intensity to the relationship. In a Capricorn mate, Cancer finds dedication, and in return Capricorn comes to love Cancer’s persistence. These two Signs from opposite sides of the Zodiac can come together to create a very successful and secure connection. This relationship builds and grows from a strong foundation of material and emotional security. Both Signs can make frugal, conservative decisions. It doesn’t have to be all solemnity, though, as Cancer can help their hard-working Capricorn lover to enjoy the rewards of all that labor.
Cancer will also be the keeper of nostalgia and cherished memories and possessions. Capricorn moves Cancer toward achievement and keeps in check their Crab-like tendencies. This relationship succeeds if there is an ironclad commitment and a stable, traditional home environment. Mothering Cancer truly enjoys smoothing over Capricorn’s hard edges. Conversely, Capricorn can smooth Cancer’s ruffled emotional feathers by providing the sort of solid foundation that Cancer desperately craves. The Cancer-Capricorn love mates want to be economically stable and love fine things; they are both initiatory, active and ardent. Though this can be a catalyst for some dynamite conflicts, it can provide Capricorn with an emotional pillar. Their utter dedication to one another , shared passions, commitment toward shared goals, sense of responsibility and morality make theirs a highly compatible relationship.
