What makes them?

They’re both children at heart and can laugh at anything. They also make great lovers.

What breaks them?

There are a mountain of differences here… in approach, outlook, skills, desires… and they’ll all need to be bridged by hard-nosed, bottom-line benefits for both. Especially Sagittarius will want comfort for all she has to compromise on.

Can it work?

Against all odds, it can. The thing they have in their advantage is the ability to laugh off anything, including their mistakes and differences. They will fall out over a ton of things and always pull in different directions, but there is no real malice behind the slow-burning Cancer-Sag romance.


It almost provides a source of never-ending entertainment for their family and friends once Sagittarius Woman and Cancer Man discover they will never be on the same page on many things, but these lovers have enough of a bridge between their worlds for the attraction to be sustained by purpose.

One key plus factor is Sagittarius woman’s natural gravitation (despite whatever she may claim) towards security and a man who can guarantee a future. Cancer is that mcouples romance compatibilityan.

It may take him a while to get everything together at the standard he requires, but Cancer will always come out as the dependable, solid “family man” bet by sundown. Sagittarius has spent much of her adolescence and youth hovering from party to party, not even necessarily dabbling in the darker arts of such a lifestyle (considering she has an extremely upbeat perspective on life) but knowing she does not want to miss out on life’s possibilities.

Truthfully, her heart is not nearly as cynical as her execution. She’ll meet plenty of flattering and affable lovers but find none of them hold the same gravitas as the stare of a Cancer male who means business.

This is the first man she’s encountered who means and delivers on what he says, or forever holds his peace. Their preliminary flirting sessions can intrigue Sagittarius because Cancer seems to show a side of himself to her that he would hide from the rest of the world. What women doesn’t love that? She encounters him at the usual parties but he is always the one to leave slightly early.

Time shows Sagittarius that her Cancer love interest proves a wholesome man with enough fear of rejection to match her vulnerable hope for happiness. If he can quietly lure her in with the prospect of benefits and security away from a lifestyle that gradually takes toll on her lonesome routine, she convinces herself Cancer is worth her time and commitment in trying to put a smile on his face.

As soon as they begin to spend most of their time together, it is a careful negotiation of terms and figuring out just how far one side will cave before making a stand. For instance, Cancer’s possessiveness rises to the surface and he’ll soon demand changes to the landscape of Sagittarius’ social life.

How many friends Sagittarius will put on the back burner for the Cancer goods to keep flowing into their joint coffers is a variable that changes over time and necessity. She won’t object to the gradual transition from beer keg to wedding anniversaries, just as long as she can get the same amount of social kudos from her circle of friends for her progression.

Sagittarius also has very little tolerance or desire to an exclusive audience-of-one to Cancer’s more dramatic and dark moods, but Cancer could be convinced to take his frustrations out on a well-timed holiday vacation, in exchange for the prospect of one-on-one time with his Sag lover (he should be so privileged!)

Eventually, they’ll both laugh at themselves. Their friends and family possibly warned them of their differences and Cancer-Sagittarius know they’ll never completely overcome them. But this two have hearts of gold and won’t be tempted to use skullduggery to transform the other’s way of thinking. The simple decision is whether they have a good enough thing not to go searching for a better deal somewhere else.

The secret factor swinging the balance in their favour is the potential for discovery and sensuality in lovemaking. Sagittarius is a known (although she wouldn’t have it known too publicly) adventurous and experimental lover. Cancer is equally as attentive and doesn’t particularly need to try hard in turning on his partners… he just has the magic hands like that. You can’t find a substitute for natural talent. Sagittarius will revel in the feelings Cancer provokes out of every inch of her being, and use her daring to heighten their pleasure.

If these two had the ability to touch a single malicious nerve in each other, across their sea of differences, we’d warn to stay well away. However, sometimes fate intervenes to bring the best out of opposites and that is no more evident than when Cancer male and Sagittarius female get together for a lasting union.

40 Notes on "Sagittarius Woman and Cancer Man Compatibility"

jason benson

I recently fell in love with a female sagittarius (Im a male cancer) and I was suprised how much of the above rings true. I am still in the early stages of the relationship but I love this girl very much and this just re-enforced what I already knew. Anyways…. good one. This pleases me.

The Resolution

That’s always great to hear Jason. Mimi and myself wrote these a while back and before we moved onto to posting more in depth astrology we wanted these horoscopes to be really tight. Cancer and Sagittarius is actually a really counter intuitive pairing in spirit yet we see this couple work all the time in real life to very pleasing effect. I know a Cancer and Sagittarius marriage going on 40 years strong within my extended family. Good luck!

I am a sagie lady and I am currently dating a cancer man. I fully concur with your findings. For us, it was quite strange cause we met at the airport where both of us were in transit, sat over a restaurant to talk for 2hours and the conversation was flowing as if we had known each other over ages. From then, we were on on and off communication for almost 11months after I had teased him about a man who did not exist in my life. All of a sudden we have hooked up again this year and its… Read more »

I’m a female Sagittarius currently dating a Cancer man & this makes so much sense to me. We met at work, starting off as just flirtatious friends, but it quickly developed into a very steamy romance. After about 5 months he started to become very weary of our relationship, mainly because he said he felt he could never truly tame me. Even though I would normally just walk away & move onto the next I couldn’t get him out of my mind, & heart. Although I was married in the past & have had many serious relationships, as opposed to… Read more »
I’ve learned a lot more insight from Sag women themselves over the last few months, and the partners that date them. Take this as merely constructive criticism of Sag even though I know Cancer has a lot of work themselves to do. Sags can be as giving and sacrificing as ever in friendship, yet when it comes to romance they come off as self-centred, self-serving, hell… even selfish in the way they pursue only what feels good to them. It’s a hedonistic trait that makes them very very cool friends, maybe not so hot to be at home with on… Read more »

Love the article and comments. I am a female Sagittarius (12/14) and I will say that the true love of my love was a cancer (07/21),. He is the one who got away due to my stupidity. He was loving, loyal, faithful, dedicated and a true friend. I hurt him very badly and I will never get over it. This was quite a few years ago, but I can say that it was the perfect match.

Awww I’m the same a sag woman dating a male cancer and when we would drift apart it was very hard to get him out of my mind and heart we have great conversations and opposites definitely attract


I also met my cancer male at work after he pretty much came after me. We argue, get back together but its so exciting to me. I like what we have and wouldn’t trade it in for the world. One of the best lovers I’ve had that was very sensual. I love my cancer man and when I wanna leave him alone, I never can.

Whowa, Just gave me a little hope. I just met a cancer man whom we mon stop talked for hours… Dates: conversation flys: we laugh like kids. He is moving house and already has kids… I am travelling now for three weeks and I thiught I would have strayed especially over New Years… Not that withing this first phase very early days moment I would have wanted to be committed, but having come out of relationships over the past three years where a man cheated on me.. I thought I would have needed more time alone. I am scared about… Read more »
