Sexual compatibility and intimacy

At first glance, Cancer and Libra might seem very distant. Both Signs have a hard time accepting Mars and this leads to a lack of passion and initiative in their sex life. However, the gentle and careful nature of Libra can truly soothe Cancer. This is mainly due to the fact that Saturn, the ruler of the opposite sign of Cancer, is exalted in Libra. While some initiative may be missing, there is a chance for Cancer and Libra to function very well in their sex life if they spend enough time together.


Cancer may be one of the more confident zodiac signs, but there is an irritating side to Libra’s nature to which they rarely remain immune. While Cancer wants a quiet family life without interference from other people, Libra seem unable to stay away from other people, seeking their affection and approval day in and day out. At some point their Cancer partner has to wonder if this is the kind of partner they want to have children with. On the other hand, Libra finds the whole approach to a romantic relationship that Cancer has a bit unrealistic. This can easily lead to a lack of confidence in Libra, especially if the Sun is in the last degrees of the sign.

Communication and intellect

As signs ruled by Venus and the Moon, it is safe to assume that their relationship is in some sense very important. Although Libra is responsible for the higher and spiritual nature of Venus, it is still a sign of relationships and the Moon will only emphasize the need for closeness and harmony. Their communication won’t be too difficult, but there is a chance they don’t share many interests or respect each other enough to have real quality.


Both the Moon and Venus represent emotions and they are both highly emotional signs. However, their emotional context is very different, as Cancer is looking for love on Earth and Libra is looking for someone to take to heaven. This is exactly where the spiritual side of the Venus of Libra takes away from them the real possibility of sharing a life together. She is a Venus who does not need to eat or sleep, as long as she feels the unique and balanced love. Cancer will understand this idea to some extent, but will likely seek a more grounded partner when they realize this is a pattern that is not about to change.


As both are signs of relationships – family relationships or relationships with partners – both of you will appreciate a pleasant and joyful connection between two people. If they find it with each other, they will surely have trouble letting it go, they both understand that it is not that easy to find. However, their entire value system differs greatly beyond relationships, and while Cancer will appreciate tenderness and care, Libra will appreciate responsibility and platonic love.

Shared activities

Cancer and Libra could do a lot of things together, but it’s debatable if they will. Cancer is a sign that exalts Jupiter and although they may be perfectly happy with a grumpy partner, they would appreciate that they didn’t need to force their grumpiness on them. There is a secret desire in every Cancer to travel the world, despite having a secure base to return home to, but Libra could destroy their beliefs and lead them to doubt that they simply don’t want to have anything to do with it. With Cancer’s mild and sweet temperament, Libra will likely feel even more inadequate and grumpy, as they need someone who is their opposition and challenges them to have respect and sexual charge.
