Aquarius Man And Cancer Woman Love Compatibility (7+ Complicated Traits)

by Sonya Schwartz

These two signs are quite an unlikely match, they’re different from each other in so many ways. Aquarius is an air sign and a man with this sign is ruled by his intellect, he’s not easily moved by his emotions nor does he base his decision-making on them. He’s very social, adventurous, somewhat rebellious, and loves his freedom. 

Cancer, on the other hand, is a water sign and therefore, a lady with this sign is ruled by her heart. She’s very in tune with her emotions and tends to be quite intuitive. She has a very nurturing, motherly nature and is sometimes perceived as bossy because of this. 

Aquarius and cancer compatibility isn’t one many people bank on, but the few who love one another often stay together for a long time. One of the major things these two signs have in common is their determination

The Aquarius man is adaptable and a bit flexible, he hardly gives up on anything he sets his mind to do. Also, the cancer woman’s motherly nature makes her quite patient and forgiving, she will fight to make any relationship work.  With that being said, let’s take a look at their compatibility traits.

8 Compatibility Traits Of Aquarius Men And Cancer Women

1. Friendship

The Aquarius man and cancer woman are on the two opposite sides of the zodiac and therefore have personality traits that clash from time to time. The cancer woman is more emotional and sensitive while the Aquarius man is more intellectual, flashy, and has a modern outlook on life. However, an Aquarius man is very easy going and friendly, full of energy, and quite good with people. 

They may find one another fascinating, yet difficult to understand. However, these two have the chance at a great and long-lasting friendship since the love and care she is ever willing to share is secret what type of woman Aquarius man craves.  

2. Partnership and communication

Partnership and communication

The Cancer woman’s sensitivity makes it easier for her to pay attention to detail, something that isn’t the Aquarius man’s strong suit. However, they would make great business partners, project partners, work partners, etc. especially when they’re heading a team of large numbers. 

They are able to make complex and massive projects a reality as a duo, which usually lands them in managerial positions at work. Nonetheless, communication between both signs is not the best, they both struggle to understand each other's tones and meanings. 

3. Challenges and similarities

The Aquarius man loves his freedom and will do anything to protect it. This is one thing the Cancer woman finds hard to understand. She’s quite possessive and prefers a more structured and family-centered life. However, the man is more of a free-spirit, he tries to show her this by giving her as much freedom as she wants. It's often quite hard for her to reciprocate though. 

If they both meet each other in the middle; the man would be able to tame his wild side while the woman cuts loose a bit and explores her adventurous side, this way they’d have a chance at a great bond. 

4. Emotional bond  

The Aquarius man is very idealistic, humane, and principled. He loves to break free from prejudice and certain rules he considers superficial. However, he often struggles to express his inner feelings. His way of communicating is very different from the way everyone else expresses themselves.

 His distant nature can sometimes hinder his chances of bonding emotionally with a person he loves. The cancer woman, on the other hand, is a strong motherly figure. She loves to nurture and protect her loved ones. 

She has no problem expressing her affections in a relationship but her motherly nature can sometimes drive her to ‘parent’ the people she cares about. 

5. Family and marriage life

A marriage between an Aquarius man and a Cancer woman is very unlikely. However, if they’re able to get past their differences then they’re likely to have a lasting and successful marriage. They will have to work extra hard on their communication skills and try their best to avoid misunderstandings. 

The Aquarius man’s determination is often what increases the longevity of their marriage. The Cancer woman is also a very devoted wife; in fact, this is her strong suit. The wife in her would do anything to make her marriage work, even though it means making compromises from time to time. 

These major traits in these signs are what may likely make their marriage successful. It would be better for both of them if they have children. That way, the cancer woman would have an outlet for her maternal instincts. 

6. Aquarius man and Cancer woman relationship

These signs are better off as friends, as there’s bound to be a handful of misunderstandings in their relationship. The woman will definitely be a loving, caring, and nurturing friend. She will cater to all his emotional needs and his cravings for affection. However, the Aquarius man is a free and social spirit. 

He will give his lover all the freedom she needs and expect the same from her. The Cancer woman’s sense of humor is very well appreciated by the man and he enjoys her company when she’s not smothering him with her motherly energy. 

Another thing that draws Aquarius to Cancer is the fact that she’s constantly changing her life routine, also the fact that she knows how to really care. The Cancer woman’s periodic mood swings may baffle him initially, but his adjustable and adaptable nature will learn to live with it.    

7. Aquarius man and Cancer woman in a relationship

Aquarius man and Cancer woman in a relationship

The love affair between these signs is a really rocky road for both. However, if they’re determined to understand each other, they can eventually balance their opposite personalities out. The good thing is that both signs love change and like to shuffle their routine from time. 

Cancer’s changing moods, however,  are prone to agitate Aquarius but in turn, he surprises her with his spontaneity periodically. The Cancer woman prefers a  private and discreet life while the man is very open and out there, he’s the PDA type of guy but the woman will be very reluctant in this area. 

Though the man is principled, restrictions like these would make him feel caged and limited. This is the complete opposite of what he wants in a relationship, he prefers the adventurous, ‘go with the flow’ type of life and is likely to influence the woman in this area if she’s willing.    

8. Aquarius man and Cancer woman in bed

Being an air sign, he handles everything as if it's a mental exercise, including sex. The woman on the other hand views sex as an emotional activity, meant to bring two lovers closer to each other. Their communication challenges will also cause a lot of friction in this area. 

She will have no problems communicating her needs, fantasies, and even giving feedback on what she wants and doesn’t want as a woman.

  1. Recently I have met an Aquarius guy who is very handsome. I noticed him without even knowing that he noticed me even before I did. I am cancerian. We met in last week and oh wow what an experience. In the beginning I allowed him to speak and he had alot to say about how attracted he is physically and emotionally to me and how he never planned this and didn't go looking for it but it happened and to cut a long story short its crystal clear he wants more. When it was my turn to speak he kept interrupting me by touching me and later kissing me. I like him alot and think he is a gorgeous guy who is completely different to other men I met. So later on I didn't even get a proper chance to talk about the situation. Then we were into each other. The thing that concerns me is the fact that he is living with a woman. I tried to touch on that topic but he didn't say too much. I really like this guy and must admit he has a way with words, I guess it's his territory because he is a lawyer. What do I do, I haven't heard from him since our meeting and I am thinking it's maybe because he is expecting me to contact him with my response as he said I must give it some thought but as much as I want to text him I would really like him to make the 1st move. Please advise. Thanks in advance
