Cancer Man and Scorpio Woman Compatibility


Whether a mere friendship or something more, a relationship between a Cancer man and Scorpio woman is capable of being an intense and beautiful thing. As both Scorpio and Cancer are water signs, they can mesh quite well together overall, with enough differences to keep relationships exciting and explorative. There is much to be said about the intensity and emotional elements of these two signs and in the interest of keeping these waves from crashing together, understanding the defining characteristics can help significantly.

Basic Compatibility

On a scale of 1-10, a Scorpio woman maintains an intensity level of about an 11. While this can be overwhelming for many other signs, it compliments the Cancer man quite generously. The endearing and often gentlemanly characteristics of a Cancer man only truly shine when he feels secure within a relationship. This trait works out well as once a Scorpio has her eyes set on a mate or a new friend, she expects and enjoys every ounce of loyalty she has invested, which is to say, all of it. This means this unique pairing can be the most beautiful and perfect relationship in existence when nurtured, or it can be tumultuous and troubled if either side is taken for granted.

As truly emotion-driven water signs, when tempers flare, it can feel like a maelstrom on both sides. The Cancer man values stability, security, and comfort. Thus a lack in any of the three areas can draw forth the potential moodiness that gives credence to the claim of Cancers being crabby. For the female Scorpio, sudden or simmering moodiness is far less of an issue. As strong-willed and direct women, their ire is likely to be heard loud and clear and felt in its entirety.

Love And Relationships

Cancer men and Scorpio women truly shine on their approach to beginning a new romantic relationship. Scorpios are typically very direct about their interest, which meshes well with the relationship anxieties often found in the guarded Cancer man. For a sign that needs to be assured he is truly loved before emotional investment, Scorpios answer the call in full, occasionally to the point of being overwhelming.

As with everything else about Scorpio, long-term relationships thrive on excitement and intensity. The potential for boredom is there if her Cancer partner remains firmly locked in what is safe and routine as far as romance and even recreation are concerned. Cancer men are known to wine and dine their partners and have a distinct appreciation for the arts as well as beauty wherever it is found. Balancing the Scorpio’s need for excitement with Cancer’s need for comfort can occasionally be difficult, so take the time to discover activities you both truly enjoy together. Jealousy issues, whether real or imagined, are a negative trait on both ends of this relationship. In Scorpio, it can manifest as either outright anger or passive aggressive vengeance. For Cancer men, intense feelings of jealousy may lead them to be stifling or controlling. On the other hand, emotional retreat is not uncommon, with broodiness gradually escalating until it permeates the relationship.

As for the steamy side of things, Scorpio women frequently embrace their wild side. Trying new things, often in unexpected places, can be a highlight of your shared sex life. That said, Scorpio women are just as appreciative of the candle-lit dinners, romance and passionate sex Cancer men offer. Cancers are driven to please and are often very comfortable being along for the ride. Far from boring, Cancer men are rarely selfish when it comes to pleasure, often determined to satisfy as it reinforces many of their base needs. That said, focus on him is paramount to keeping a Cancer man happy. If it seems that your attention has strayed or faithfulness is in question, it may become a real struggle to reignite passion.

Working Together

In the workplace, Cancer men and Scorpio women can either complement each other ideally, or cause a situation where things get rather testy. While not at all arrogant, Scorpio women tend to seek and value success very strongly. As such, getting in the way of performing well in a group project situation can cause some upset. The careful approach of the Cancer man may mean he is reluctant to take risks to truly shine, even if the reward could be great. The emotionally driven personality can make criticism harder to handle, but it should never be avoided entirely. As long as feedback is constructive, the Cancer man will undoubtedly find a way to perform better the next time.

The somewhat dominating nature of Scorpios tends to make them effective leaders from a management point of view. They aggressively pursue goals and offer a no-holds-barred tactic approach to everything. Despite this, success is not at the expense of those beneath them as Scorpios are still very emotionally involved individuals and capable of empathy. Conversely, having a Cancer man as a boss may lead to a more relaxed work experience. Cancer men work hard and often expect the same from everyone else, but to a far less aggressive degree. Slacking off is unlikely to be permitted, but they are far more likely to find ways to assist you with your shortcomings as opposed to firing you for consecutive failures.

The Cancer man and Scorpio woman are truly complementary signs. Their combined need and appreciation for loyalty and stability can often bring any potential negatives under control. While both are emotionally driven, it does not need to progress into a volatile mess. Friendships frequently remain firm in the face of adversity, with Cancer being supportive while Scorpio tackles the offending issue head on. While streaks of jealousy can be devastating for either side, the nurturing nature of Cancer, and the full focus of Scorpio can often salve wounds quickly. An invested relationship between a Cancer man and Scorpio woman, even if merely a friendship, can be the most endearing and rewarding experience of their lives.
