These two Water Signs have several similarities. Sensitive, affectionate, attentive, sometimes a little too present, they are made to be together. They are capable of loving intensely and for a long time, there will always be a cuddle or a word of comfort for the other half: in short, a fairytale love!

Sexual compatibility and intimacy

Cancer and Pisces are almost always united by a romantic love. Their sexual connection is usually primarily emotional. The Pisces partner might seem a bit strange and perverse to Cancer, but they should have a mutual feeling, strong enough for both of them to enrich their sexual relationship with their own qualities.


It’s a good thing Cancer usually isn’t aggressive or pushy, or they could easily get dishonesty from Pisces as a response to their tendency to create coziness and a happy home at any cost. Pisces don’t really understand marriage except as part of a fairytale ending or all that lace, and Cancer usually wants a wedding as the crowning glory of a love relationship. This could be recognized as pressure at some point and this could lead to the Pisces partner becoming scared.

Communication and intellect

As changeable as Pisces are, they always have something to talk about. This can be stimulating or irritating to Cancer who perhaps would prefer to deal with real information. They usually communicate well, but there are situations where they might float away on an idea made up of words. Cancer is looking for someone with clarity on the use and practicality of everything he mentions. Pisces is anything but focused on practicality in most everyday situations.


Cancer can understand the sensitive nature of their Pisces partner better than anyone else. Anything that seems easygoing and positive may have a hidden negative note in the Pisces world, and Cancer hears rather than listens, which makes them a perfect companion for someone like Pisces. When they sense this deep understanding, the Pisces partner will return the favor with absolute tenderness and finally open up to their Cancer partner. When they find this shared point of intimacy where true emotions are shared, it will affect all other segments of their relationship and fuel them to have a fairytale ending.


This is where the difference in their character really comes into being. As much as they will both enjoy being loved and cared for, Cancer will appreciate a stable emotional situation and a welcoming home to come to, while Pisces will likely appreciate any chance of an emotional roller coaster more. Pisces are often said to idealize partners and different things in life, but they actually get depressed when there is no magic and perfect beauty around them. If their daily life with a Cancer partner becomes anything like a boring routine, they will find a way to escape, find a lover, or create any kind of truly exciting circumstances.

Shared activities

When they meet and start their relationship, they will likely have a lot of things to do together. A relationship with a Pisces partner is always exciting and inspiring, and Cancer will give them strength, stability and roots. At first, this may seem like a great deal, but over time Pisces may want too much activity for what the Cancer partner really needs. This wouldn’t be a big deal if they told their partner without fear that none of them get hurt. If they begin to bend the truth, Cancer will feel that their trust begins to wane and this could start a series of problems between them, which could have been easily avoided.
