Sexual compatibility and intimacy

The sign of Scorpio is associated with death and all kinds of bad things, but all their malice comes from their emotional and sexual repression. Cancer can usually understand their Scorpio partner’s need to express their deepest, darkest emotions in their sex life. If the Cancer partner doesn’t get scared or is too forced to do something he isn’t ready for, a Cancer-Scorpio sexual relationship can be deeply satisfying for both partners.


When Scorpio falls in love, trust is one of the most important things they are looking for. If they feel betrayed in some way, they can start showing all those evil sides of their nature and become truly possessive and jealous. The cancer partner usually wants someone to share a life with and will have no reason to cheat or lie to their partner.

Communication and intellect

Cancer and Scorpio usually understand each other without words. This can affect their sex life and make it much better, or much worse, depending on how their need for mystery is expressed. Their communication is very good, as long as emotions are not the main topic of a conversation. They can finish each other’s sentences if they need to talk in the first place. The depth they both have, even though it may not be visible in the Cancer partner at first, makes them able to talk about anything.


This is difficult territory for a couple like this. Cancer lives buried in its emotions, positive or negative, able to use them in their daily routine as an integral part of their life. Scorpio may have a hard time understanding how exactly this works, because she has a tendency to reject emotions, thinking this is the only way to achieve a certain goal.


Cancer value their inner peace and longs for a stable life with a family they can rely on. Scorpio represents change and above all appreciates it, even if they are not fully aware of it. It can be difficult for these partners to coordinate their personalities if they are not both flexible enough to understand their differences and the depth each of them has behind these superficial needs. Scorpio can fear emotions to the point of agony and if Cancer recognizes this, he will be able to get close to them in the best possible way and discover their true need for security and emotional balance.

Shared activities

It doesn’t matter what Cancer and Scorpio will do if they both feel good about each other. They need to share emotions and protect their loved ones: Cancer because of their maternal need to protect the people they love and Scorpio for setting good boundaries on what they think is right. If they create their own little world, they can be found in any situation together, treating things as one. Scorpio usually enjoy some dangerous activities and Cancer will have a hard time adjusting to those, but if their emotional core is good, they will have a quiet understanding of each other’s needs, however destructive they may become.
