Aries + Cancer
Fire + Water = Steam

If you find yourself attracted to a Cancer and choose to enter into a serious relationship with them, you must continually remind yourself to move slowly and sensitively. Cancer is a far more emotional sign than Aries, as its water element implies.

However, the positive in this combination might be your ability to inspire others. It could well be a boon to shy and reserved Cancers. You can motivate them to take the initiative and explore other possibilities.

Your mission with a Cancer, in terms of romance, will be to be very responsive, because Cancers are extremely receptive and sensual. Both Aries and Cancer are cardinal, movable signs of the zodiac. This indicates flexibility and adjustment and a need for great variety in both of your lifestyles. But always remember that the Cancerian creature is far more retiring and home-loving than you.

Your blistering enthusiasm, which is like a souce of pure energy that is always turned on, will overheat the cool and watery Cancer. Result? A rather steamy affair. Now steam is fine when it comes to matters of physical intimacy. In fact sexually it’s most desirable. But a steamy fog or lack of clarity on an emotional and mental level is a different matter altogether. This is where the difficulty between the two of you lies.

Cancer, like Marg Simpson of The Simpsons, requires an undemanding, stable, nourishing home life. Aries, on the other hand, is more like Homer Simpson — far less willing to settle down. You need variety in love, and Cancer might be a little too staid — perhaps even boring — for you on a long-term basis. But don’t give up — Homer and Marg Simpson seem to keep it together even though Homer is all over the place most of the time!

If Cancer is able and willing to give you the freedom you require, this partnership is quite likely to work. The chances are best if you were born in the last portion of Aries, between 10 April and 19 April. This is because Jupiter is an influencing planet for that period, which means that you will thoughtfully accommodate the domestic needs of Cancers.

Those Cancers born between 22 June and 2 July will be far too sensitive for your Arian power.

The best choice appears to be the Cancers born between 3 July and 13 July, who are partly ruled by Mars, Pluto and Scorpio. You can expect powerful love connections with these individuals. This is because the Scorpio vibration resonates strongly with your sign, as it too is ruled by Aries. You’ll find a tremendous karmic connection with these Cancers.

Those born between 14 July and 22 July are not likely to completely satisfy your need for immediate and spontaneous activity; they are too idealistic for you.

If you are an Aries who doesn’t mind a lot of quiet time in front of a cosy fire, the home-loving Cancers born between 21 June and 3 July are perfect for you.
