Sexual compatibility and intimacy

A sexual relationship between Cancer and Aquarius can be stressful for both partners. Although Cancer is considered the most sensitive sign of the zodiac, ruled by the Moon, they can be quite rude and distant when they feel the need to set strong boundaries. Aquarius, on the other hand, is known as an innovator, someone who makes the change, but in reality they are a fixed sign, rather set in their ways and as a paradox – immutable.


Cancer is usually loyal and honest, except in situations where it is afraid of a loved one’s aggressive reaction or of seriously hurting him. With Aquarius, they may feel stressed about sharing things and this could present a problem both ways when it comes to trust. The liberal nature of Aquarius might seem insane to a Cancer, and their partner’s honesty about their insanity won’t help the inner feeling of distrust of their possible actions. It’s complicated for them, because none of them want to lie, but they still don’t seem to trust the future they might share.

Communication and intellect

Cancer and Aquarius are able to join forces in intellectual activity. A Cancer’s mind is sensitive enough to pay attention to details and interpersonal relationships when the Aquarius doesn’t. They could come up with great ideas, especially those that need a lot of people involved in their journey to become real.


The unconventional nature of Aquarius interferes with Cancer’s need to be in a peaceful environment, and this is something they will find more difficult to reconcile. That homely and welcoming feeling that Cancer needs can be deeply disturbed by the wayward Aquarius Air sign. They will bring stress and too much information into their life, and a speed that cannot be handled by a subtle state of deep empathy that cancer has to live with every day.


Cancer values knowledge almost as much as Aquarius values information. This is a beautiful connection between their worlds and, if cultivated, it may be enough not to be separated from other values that they cling to. Cancer appreciates stability, intimacy, and family, while Aquarius values their freedom, intellect, and new technology. There is a difference between their worlds that may seem impossible to overcome, but if they keep their love of distance and travel or if they learn together, they could easily overcome the fact that their values on other things differ so much.

Shared activities

While the Cancer will want to stay at home, have a picnic in the park or at a furniture store, the Aquarius will look for the tallest skyscraper, will want a new laptop, and will read everything that comes into their hands. The key activity that could really connect them is travel. Although cancer seems familiar and immovable, this isn’t exactly true. Due to the fact that it is a sign of Jupiter’s exaltation, they will want to travel far.
