Why Cancer and Pisces Are a Good Match

Updated on January 18, 2017

Water Element Paradise

What do you have when the water elements meet minus Scorpio? No, Scorpio, you are not invited to the emotional party -- you dog.

Cancer is a crab and Pisces is a fish. They both belong near and in water. They see the world in a different way -- through their sensitivities, intuition, and through emotions. Pisces and Cancer will fit each other like tailor made gloves. Cancer wants to express the fullness of love. Cancer is all about emotional expression, the moodiness, the currents. They are like the moon with a number of tides. In my mind, it is an incredibly feminine sign -- gushing, moody, changing, and wearing its heart on its sleeve. Pisces is all about unconditional love. Pisces is the wisest of the zodiac being in the final house. Pisces has the power to bring out miracles, the gospel, a mentoring instinct. The energies these two offer will match well.

Cancer will enjoy having someone who has a variety of expressions. They will get the affection they crave. Cancer craves affection and adoration more than any other sign -- except maybe Leo's ego. Cancer will appreciate Pisces wisdom. Pisces will enjoy how much they can be loved by Cancer because Pisces wants to see love, it wants to experience it -- and Cancer wants to express it. There is a positive current here of give and take energy.

High Compatibility

Both of these will have to be careful about their moodiness. It can be tough having two water signs date each other because they have the power to get moody at each other. Remember you are a team and not just living on your own. The more self-development you have before getting into a relationship to understand love, the more you will be able to navigate through it.

Cancer needs to open its eyes to its partner's needs. Have your own opinion and don't be afraid of someone having a different opinion than you. It's okay to occasionally be stubborn -- I find Cancers to be some of the least stubborn, and some of the moodiest because they constantly are changing what they think. You have really high expectations in love, sometimes you have to call yourself out for pipe dreaming. Your partner also wants to be loved and to give love.

Pisces wants to explore its creative talents. Pisces to me is a lot like Aquarius, except they're not pushing so much for rebellion or authenticity -- they just want unconditional love and without it they go into deep mood swings, existential crises because love is what they want, and without it -- nothing is real, it's just oblivion at that point.

These kind of ideas might scare the Cancer or really charm it. Cancer would love to give their heart and nurture someone out of deep, sad thoughts. Pisces wants Cancer because they want to be doted.

Be comfortable with each other when the other is cranky. It's okay to have bad days. It's okay to cry. Try exploring your emotions together and don't be afraid. You are both in the hands of a good lover. Prevent yourself from trying to manipulate things out of hurts. Usually, when you are manipulating something that means you are really wanting love. Be patient with love. Be kind with love. Don't try to design it yourself, because it doesn't work that way. Sometimes water signs need to trust destiny and not push so much with their free-wills. Look at fire signs. They really get free-will and master it. They can become egotistical about it, but they know how to balance their wills with reality -- and to come out as fierce forces for that reason. Sagittarius especially has this lesson down to a tee.

Water signs are experts at emotions. They feel it all the time. They go with their emotions and their intuition when they can. If you really believe in your intuition, try exploring your telepathy. Telepathy is about connecting with someone's feelings without having to use language. You can convey messages without having to explicitly say them. Water signs a lot of times would prefer company over long conversations which can be a lot for them to process because they want to get back to purified connection -- telepathy.

Avoid Narcissistic Tendencies

Pisces, be careful not to focus on someone who is narcissistic. You deserve a partner who cares about your needs as much as you care about there's. Avoid becoming a martyr or punching bag for someone else. A good partner will respect you and allow you to have boundaries. This comes from your unconditional love side. You'll have trouble pinning down the boundaries because you want to give, give, and give. Water elements have a hard time pinning down boundaries because they want to flow and boundaries seem counter-intuitive -- it isn't, it allows you to respect yourself and give yourself security. You need security -- it's not good to be without it.

Cancer also needs to have boundaries. Be comfortable with changing constantly. Sometimes you should go rest instead of explore the extent of your emotions -- give yourself these boundaries so you don't wear yourself out. You want to give in totality, but overtime you will. You don't have to give your whole heart in one sitting. Don't eat the elephant in one bite!

Be Independent

Having boundaries also helps you to create a relationship on independence and not co-dependence. Water signs are big lovers, and sometimes they put so much into it that they allow too much of it to define them, too much of the love ends up being their security blanket, and too much of their identity. These are areas where you need to focus on in and of yourself. Become a master of these things and you'll be prepared for a romantic relationship.

It's okay if you spend time away, it's okay if you don't know every sparing detail about each other, it's okay to have fights, and it's okay to change overtime.

I recommend meditation for water signs to clear the mind. This will help you to develop your intuition and also clear out language so you can focus on telepathy. Don't be afraid of language, but it can muddy you up more than other signs. Air signs can live on language all day long -- they are a constant thought. This is not where you live. You live in a more pure place of the heart. We as a society are blocking out emotions and not fully understanding this, which makes your existence all the more confusing and suppressed. Open up your hearts and don't be afraid -- be the forerunners we need in society to better understand and unlock our real emotions for ultimate healing. The zodiac and the signs themselves are really a lesson and guidebook to love. Cancer and Pisces work well with each other because of how much they are wanting to experience love in their lives. Other signs add other elements to love to help the planet.

A Cancer and Pisces relationship will do well to lead and follow. Cancer loves to be chased, so does Pisces, but they like leading as well due to their mentor skills. They will feel like a natural couple, they are both sweet, and they both have much more to them than people usually see on the surface. Cancer will encourage Pisces to seek more creativity and intelligence, Pisces will encourage Cancer to express more of itself and to be comfortable with its voice. Pisces can help refine Cancer -- to its surprise. Pisces will understand why Cancer has its widespread moods.

        Typically, since Cancer and Pisces are both water signs they go well together. They have similar mood swings and also ways of communicating. Both are emotional signs, and in my opinion, they are much lighter emotional signs than Scorpio. Cancer does change its mind frequently like the moon, and Pisces can be much more lighthearted and sage like. As for a Pisces who doesn't want to deal with water signs -- you may want to first try an earth sign. Virgo to me is a great match for Pisces. But Taurus and Capricorn can also be good. If communication is something you want to see -- try Gemini who is the communication master. Aquarius may feel great as well with its communication plus and also being Pisces' neighbor.

        I find this to be true so far. I am a Pisces and let me tell you, continuously I attract Cancers. It's like I have a magnet for them or something. I think my past three lovers have been cancers. That's not to add a couple of best friends...

        anyways, I don't think these two are compatible. Cancer has a hard time understanding what Pisces needs in the terms of love- the idea of it really scares them and of course, they put their crabby shells on. Trying to uncover their true selves is like pulling teeth. They shelter it so deeply and privately and honestly that gets exhausting. If you wait too long, they think you are no longer interested but if you do express interest, it's running underground again. Talk about moody people- cancers are definitely it. I have had to navigate their emotions with great dexterity because you never know what might send a cancer back under again. When they do let their authenticity shine through, oh my gosh, the world feels lighter and more loveable.

        Not to say Pisces is the easiest sign to understand either but, if this relationship is to work, a lot needs to be worked through. Communication can for certain be problematic between these two. the potential is definitely there but would I say that these two are highly compatible, I have come to doubt it through experience. But maybe... who knows
