Both are romantics, though in different ways: Leo wants a relationship to be glorious and exciting, Cancer wants it to be meaningful and fulfilling. Leo doesn’t get as overwrought as Cancer, who takes things more seriously.
Cancer needs security and tranquility and is a stay-at-home. Leo is boisterous and a gadabout who loves to be on constant display.
Cancer’s dependency will please Leo provided a little adoration is thrown in.
Leo is flamboyant in love, and Cancer is responsive, loyal, and intense; Leo likes that. Mixed signals.
Leo Woman Cancer Man
Chances are you won’t hit it off too well with the man born under Cancer if love is your object, but then Cupid has been known to do some pretty unlikely things. The Cancer man is very sensitive.
He is thin-skinned and occasionally moody. You’ve got to keep on your toes—and not step on his—if you’re determined to make a go of the relationship.
The Cancer man may be lacking in many of the qualities you seek in a man, but when it comes to being faithful and being a good provider, he’s hard to beat.
It is the perceptive Leo woman who will not mistake the Crab’s quietness for sullenness or his thriftiness for penny-pinching.
In some respects, he is like that wise old owl out on a limb; he may look like he’s dozing but actually he hasn’t missed a thing. Cancers often possess a well of knowledge about human behavior. They can come across with some pretty helpful advice to those in trouble.
He can certainly guide you in making investments both in time and in money. He may not say much, but he’s always got his wits about him.
The Crab may not be the match or the catch for many a Leo woman. In fact, he is likely to seem downright dull to the on-the-move Leo girl.
True to his sign, he can be fairly cranky and crabby when handled the wrong way. He is perhaps more sensitive than he should be.
Leo people are usually as smart as a whip. If you’re clever, you will never in any way convey the idea that you consider your Cancer a little slow on the uptake. Browbeating is a surefire way of sending the Crab angrily scurrying back to his shell. And it’s quite possible that all of that lost ground will never be recovered.
The Crab is most himself at home. Once settled down for the night or the weekend, wild horses couldn’t drag him any farther than the gatepost—that is, unless those wild horses were dispatched by his mother.
The Crab is sometimes a Momma’s boy. If his mate doesn’t put her foot down, he will see to it that his mother always comes first.
No self-respecting Leo would ever allow herself to play second fiddle, even if it’s to an elderly mother-in-law.
If the Lioness is tactful, she’ll discover that slipping into the number-one position is as easy as pie (that legendary pie his mother used to bake).
If you pamper your Cancer man, you’ll find that “mother” turns up less and less both at the front door as well as in conversations.
Cancers make protective, proud, and patient fathers. But they can be a little too protective.
Sheltering may interfere with a youngster’s burgeoning independence. Still, the Cancer father doesn’t want to see his youngster learning about life the hard way.
Leo Man Cancer Woman
If you fall in love with a Cancer woman, be prepared for anything. Cancers are sometimes difficult to understand when it comes to love.
In one hour, she can unravel a whole gamut of emotions that will leave you in a tizzy. She’ll keep you guessing, that’s for sure.
You may find her a little too uncertain and sensitive for your liking. You’ll most likely spend a good deal of time encouraging her, helping her to erase her foolish fears. Tell her she’s a living doll a dozen times a day, and you’ll be well loved in return.
Be careful of the jokes you make when in her company. Don’t let any of them revolve around her, her personal interests, or her family.
If you do, you’ll most likely reduce her to tears. She can’t stand being made fun of. It will take bushels of roses and tons of chocolates—not to mention the apologies—to get her to come back out of her shell.
In matters of money managing, she may not easily come around to your way of thinking. Money will never burn a hole in her pocket.
You may get the notion that your Cancer sweetheart or mate is a direct descendent of Scrooge. If she has her way, she’ll hang onto that first dollar you earned.
She’s not only that way with money, but with everything right on up from bakery string to jelly jars. She’s a saver; she never throws anything away, no matter how trivial.
Once she returns your love, you’ll have an affectionate, self-sacrificing, and devoted woman for life. Her love for you will never alter unless you want it to. She’ll put you high upon a pedestal and will do everything—even if it’s against your will—to keep you up there.
Cancer women love home life. For them, marriage is an easy step. They’re domestic with a capital D. She’ll do her best to make your home comfortable and cozy.
She is more at ease at home than anywhere else. She makes an excellent hostess. The best in her comes out when she is in her own environment.
Cancer women make the best mothers of all the signs of the Zodiac. She’ll consider every complaint of her child a major catastrophe.
With her, children always come first. If you’re lucky, you’ll run a close second. You’ll perhaps see her as too devoted to the children. You may have a hard time convincing her that her apron strings are a little too long.
