Sexual compatibility and intimacy

Although they don’t have much in common, they represent a husband and wife in astrology and are the king and queen of the zodiac. Unfortunately we know how unsatisfactory sex between a king and a queen can be.


Leo is said to like being the center of everyone’s attention. This is somehow true and Leo is a born artist, more or less supported to become one. However, their need to show off is something the Cancer might find irritating, but not something to lose faith in. If the Cancer feels loved, he has no reason to doubt his partner just because of his nature. However, the differences between them could lead to a secret search for more compatible partners and this is easily perceived by both partners.

Communication and intellect

Cancer and Leo, ruled by the Moon and the Sun, represent a subconscious and a conscious mind. Even if they share interests, they will often have a strangely different view of the same thing. They often drift apart as the conversation progresses. The Moon reflects the light of the Sun but revolves around the Earth. It would be fine if the Sun weren’t so used to everyone spinning around it. This explains what happens in their relationship once Leo starts talking. Though they shine, Cancer pays much more attention to someone else or the idea of earthly things they might have together than their Leo partner.


We can confidently say that their emotions are a truly beautiful thing. Both signs represent love and although it is not the same type of love, it is an emotion, pure and simple. Cancer is a water sign that represents motherly love and all the emotions of one’s family. While this isn’t always a promise of happiness, the depth of all the love that lies within is magical. On the other hand, Leo is a fire sign of joy, first loves, fun, and sex. Their heart is warm and big, because Leo represents our inner child, and their loyalty is immutable when they decide to give it to someone.


They just don’t appreciate the same things. Although this is where they part their ways, they usually take a long time to realize this fact. Cancer values tenderness, emotions, family and a stable life with someone, while Leo values initiative, passion, energy and focus. There is rarely something they will both like equally or put in the same place on their priority lists.

Shared activities

It helps that Leo enjoys sleeping for 20 hours a day. This will make them available at home. They will also be gladly served at breakfast, lunch and dinner, and who better than a caring Cancer to prepare them. However, when they leave the house, they will want to visit different places. Cancer will want to visit their close friends, especially if they have children, take a walk by the lake, or have a romantic night at the movies. Whatever they do, they like it with a little intimacy.
