In love, Cancers tend to overthink things and hesitate a lot, due to being fully aware of what their actions could lead to. Even if they may be good at protecting and supporting others, emotionally or otherwise, it’s a different thing altogether when speaking of their own person. It’s like they don’t have the same motivation or even ability to get themselves a good and stable life.

Taking up a Cancer’s invitation will be the best decision in anyone’s life. You won’t ever have to worry about anything else, because these natives are naturally adept at facing any sort of problem and challenge, and walk out unscathed. Therefore, Cancer best matches include Taurus, Scorpio and Virgo.

There is nothing quite like the relationship between a Cancer and a Taurus. These natives are so immersed in their world, that nothing and no one can tear apart this deep bond between them.

Just as expected, Cancers tend to be attracted to Earth signs, and this time, they have found the most representative one of them. These natives are exactly what the Cancers are looking for, being tightly related to their very souls and personalities.

The Bulls are naturally strong and reliable partners who can take on almost anything and still stand up smiling. Even if the many-legged natives get into one of their common fits of rage and emotional instability, their partner takes it all upon themselves and manages to calm the ever-raging onslaught that is the Cancer.

No one would believe that an individual could have so much patience and willpower that these guys possess, but seeing is believing, so go ahead and watch out for one of these couples.

Most important of all, besides being able to take all the sufferings and grievances of the partner, the Taurus is also a titan when it comes to outside dangers and challenges.

Nothing can even come close to making a dent in their relationship, because they are there to fight against anything and everything, with just their willpower and perseverance alone. It’s quite scary how gruesome and heroic they can be when something deeply important to them is in harm’s way.

All in all, their relationship is one based on mutual trust, understanding, emotional bondage and great communication. They talk about anything, from deep and intellectual subjects, to matters of great import for their development and material stability.

Also, money and financial security are definitely not a problem, since the both of them are endowed with a great sense of realism and pragmatism, as well as a good amount of visionary skills.

Next in line, we have the Scorpio, who is essentially the Cancer’s twin, as far as emotional depth and complexity goes.

They are one and the same, in the sense that they harbor the same deep desires and feelings which, most of the times, can’t be fully expressed, or they are too unfit to be expressed.

And they have long since wanted somebody to talk to about these things which they’ve kept in their hearts. Now, they’ve found them, the perfect partners.

Both are willing to lead the relationship towards the future, and neither one of them is capable of giving in to the dangers along the way.

From this point of view, there are few things which can match up to the combined strength of these natives. In general, though, the Scorpio tends to be the man in charge, and their partner doesn’t mind that at all. On the contrary, they are very happy and trusting to let the desert king take the reins of the relationship.

There are a few ups and downs which appear from time to time, mainly because of the different perspectives they have on a good intimate life.

As expected, the Scorpio tends to lose themselves in the midst of things and let their instincts take control of the situation, seemingly forgetting about anything else.

One could say that they are also lustful and craves only for physical pleasure, but that’s not true at all. These natives are just very intense and passionate, taking everything to the extreme, especially love life.

Furthermore, the Scorpios are also individuals who are able to resist quite a lot to stress and exhaustion, but when their batteries run out, don’t be surprised if you’ll lose sight of them for a few good hours, or even a day.

They need their private space, and spending some time alone will relatively quickly refill their energy and make it possible to restart everything anew.

Another couple who has the potential to reach for the stars and lead a very happy life together, the Cancer-Virgo combination takes everything a notch further. In what sense?

Well, considering that they are both very passionate about being conservative and pragmatic, with a knack for gathering all sorts of things from their vacations, you can imagine what this means.

Emotionally, don’t even think that they are balanced and calm when things go awry, because that couldn’t be further from the truth. If either one of them does a stupid thing and hurts the other’s feelings, Io and behold, one of two things happen, or both at the same time.

One, the Cancer goes into a tear-jerking spree and floods the entire house with his watery eyes and screeching sobs. And two, the Virgo turns all pale, squints their eyes into a killing glare and plans for their sweet vengeance a long time before finally showing their scars and wounds.

However, at the same time, they are also incredibly intense and passionate as well. Nothing can match the level of loyalty and determination that they show towards one another.

Having outlived many disasters in their lifetime, they have come to appreciate the little things, and love with an ambition so high, the heavens might think again before going dark on them.

Due to their high-paced feelings and emotional depth, they make perfect parents who know when to cuddle and fool around, and when to be strict and determinate in teaching them a good lesson.

Whether it’s family or friends, acquaintances or strangers, they always have a smile on their lips and a present in their hands.

Because, why not? Why pass through the world with nothing to leave behind, like a good impression or, even better, a mark of your own making? These are the Cancer and Virgo, one of the most steady and successful couples of the zodiac.

Remember that …

A Cancer is willing and able to offer you the protection and comfort you only dreamed of. Of course, this means giving up any right to the leadership position, because they can only act as a defender when given the permission to do that.

And there’s no worry about their commitment, because once you have given your consent and expressed your feelings, you basically signed a once-in-a-lifetime pact with them.

They may take a long time before deciding to go all the way, but once that happens, it really is a permanent decision.

Or, it could be that they feel the same need to be taken care of and cradled like a tiny toddler. This is actually one of the criteria for which they choose their partners – steadiness, down-to-earth attitude and a reserved personality who acts with calm and patience in even the most serious of situations.
