The scorpion and the crab
This series on astronomical compatibility will cover all the possible confrontations in the Zodiac. We will continue this series by thinking and commenting on Scorpio and Cancer.
Cancer – Scorpio
Scorpio is Water and Fixed. Cancer is water and cardinal. The water involved with these two could be a buffer, literally and metaphorically, or it could cause both of you to be inundated with positive, transformative growth. With these two caring for many of the same values and willing to invest their considerable personal power and intensity in whatever they attempt, this could be something to behold. One of the compelling parts of their match is that the Scorpion (Lizard, Eagle, Dove) has an almost unbelievably strong commitment to protect and win in a conflict. Crabs, with their homes in and around the ocean, tend to slide back to their protective place, if injured. Scorpio promises to safely protect Cancer’s wounded heart. Is the cancer weak? God knows. They simply tend to move for safety if danger has struck them. They feel they have a lot to lose. They would plan to return to battle after they had gathered their forces. The Scorpio does not think about what he can lose, he immediately sharpens his stinger intensely and he will win.
Much of the time, we spend talking about which signs don’t understand each other. With these two, it is fascinating to see how they see harmonic differences. First of all, most signs are intimidated, baffled, or confused by the intensity of the Scorpio. Zumba. One can almost hear the turbines spinning over and over again, as the son of the Phoenix and the Resurrection Power stands there and exudes. The Crab appreciates it. Cancer feels an inner intensity. Scorpio feels the same. The Crab sees the Scorpion as an ally. They both greet the world with their defensive and offensive prowess presented to the world. Scorpio is more external. Cancer is more internal. Scorpio values Cancer’s warmth and motherly kindness. They heat up with the intensity of Cancer.
Positive Postulate: One of the few times Cancer can really rest, on the inside, is probably with its Scorpio partner, partner, friend, associate. Scorpio, who was rarely really at ease, could achieve a sense of calm with the Moonchild’s loving watery enchantment. And the image that they would make in others? An image of safe and powerful, kind and internally secure people.
Romantic Recommendation: These two could create a deeply satisfying romantic world. If not, it could be achieved thanks to the creative energies of two committed people. Cancer could tap into the hot, bubbly energy of Scorpio’s still well. Cancer’s moving watery energy could animate both of you in the dynamic flow of the spiritual quest for unity and transformation.
Conflict Quotient: The conflict for these two intense people would be a battle in which brevity and short duration will be prescribed. They would like to move straight to resolution, quickly overcome recriminations, and immediately move away from invective or bitterness. Deep damage must be avoided at all costs. The fact that these two can easily do all of these things is why this could be the most important part of their relationship.
Peace Parlay: Life at the end is repetitive and mundane, as is the romance itself. This factor begs the question: “Can we get bored together in the long run?” Keep in mind the image of a hot tub when only the smallest bubbles reached the top. Imagine two happy people with refreshing drinks in their hands, their eyes closed, and their bodies completely relaxed from the burden of being the intense people that they are. They must seek peaceful boredom until they can bear it no more.
Keep Up The Interest Graph: Scorpios and Cancer could develop all kinds of interests from the underworld, aquatic, oceanic and underground in their multifaceted lives. Any party contributing to the lack of interest would have to be guilty of gross negligence.
Seven-year itch: There are some signs that, by their nature, they are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. The real compatibility difficulties would erupt before the dreaded 7 years. If they made it to the seventh year, they would probably have a lot of problems solved by then and therefore fall under the category of real happiness. Infidelity would probably just be an external sign of an internal lack of real connections, or rather, a presence of broken, unhealed, and failed connections that were damaged in the effort of trying to bond.
ASTRO COMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 80% Long Term Positive – Short Term 70%. The Crab and the Scorpion would definitely enjoy meeting and getting to know each other initially. Once time passed, the gradual recognition that they had something really special would start to grow and grow. Because these are intense players, the danger of trouble could always be there. But this is really positive.
