Sweet. Sweet. Sweet, sweet, sweet. This relationship is for the candy-hearted Leos, the most childlike Leos, and maybe the luckiest Leos of all. Deep down inside, every Leo woman wants a man who is stronger than her, but it has to be in the right way. Cancer’s utterly fatherly patience and soft heart hold the key to her dreams. This is, in my opinion, probably the best match in the zodiac. They absolutely bring out the best in one another, while allowing each to play a natural gender role. Leo, the yang sign, brings out the yang in Cancer, while Cancer, the yin sign, brings out the yin in Leo.
How to Attract a Leo Woman as a Cancer Man: Here is something that you really need to know about Leo women: Everybody worships them and wants to bed them, and maybe even wed them, but nobody … nobody … ever listens to them with sympathy. Somehow they are always expected to be regal, dignified, completely prepared, immaculately manicured, in complete control of the situation, and ready at a moment’s notice. Nobody ever seems to realize that they have down days, vulnerabilities, and wounds like the rest of us. That’s where you, dear Cancer man, come in. At the slightest hint of your natural empathy, she will curl up at your feet and purr. Continue to show sympathy for her problems and then appreciate how much responsibility she carries so gracefully. I promise you she will eat our of your hand.
How to Attract a Cancer Man as a Leo Woman: You have to tone it down a little bit from limelight to starlight. He’s a moon creature after all. You can’t come at him with your headlights straight on. Show a little vulnerability. You’ll have to risk taking a chance on seeming weak, but that’s just the way you’ll find out how strong and protective he really is. Give him a chance. No one will ever be more patient, kind, nurturing and caring about you. It’s genuine. Keep the glitzier, more aggressive aspects of your act out of the arena to bring out the best in him. In other words, turning down the volume just a little bit pays off.
Degree of Romance: If you think of Cinderella up on top of a music box with the handsome Prince Charming, this gives you an idea of the romantic energy of this combination. Cancer will win Leo heart in hand, body and soul, by extended acts of kindness and understanding. Leo will delight Cancer because she demands that he act like a Prince, so she brings out his manliness. These two will relate to each other in a beautiful circle of love, each perched on a pedestal that is polished daily.
Degree of Passion: The combination of Cancer and Leo brings out the childlike aspects of both signs where passion has not yet entered the picture, which is a sort of Garden of Eden feeling of innocence and trust. Cancer absorbs the passion that Leo is capable of. It kind of dissipates somewhere, but that’s okay, they won’t miss it. Holding hands in front of the fire and strolling along the beach at sunset makes them that happy.
Degree of Friendship: These two are each other‘s best, best friends. Think of the six of cups card in the Tarot deck adorned with an image of two little children lovingly offering each other a sip of the chalice. These two go everywhere together in spirit, have no secrets, and trust like children. They play carefully with each other’s hearts.
Degree of Marriage: This is an ideal combination for marriage. You’d think Leo would get bored with Cancer, but he fulfills so many of her unspoken needs that it can last forever. He has the inside track to her soul.
Progression of Relationship: Cancer is a cardinal sign, which means he will be in control and knows what to do. Cancer will slowly and carefully guide the couple through the steps of courtship, dotting all the appropriate i’s and crossing all the appropriate t’s until they reach the end of the road — matrimony. Cancer will make sure that the trip is simple, comfortable, cozy, and sweet. Leos feel uncharacteristically relaxed and “handled.”
Sex: Cancer men are wonderful lovers because they are so in touch with the other person’s feelings. There is a natural affinity between these two signs as they both want to come from the heart where sex is concerned. It is sometimes not recognized the importance that trust plays in an intimate relationship, but it is critical for satisfaction and fulfillment. The trust factor between these two may eventually reach 100%. Isn’t that everyone’s dream?
When It’s Over: Cancer will never end the relationship but will try to nurture and placate Leo. If Leo is absolutely implacable about something, then Leo will have to end it. Cancer will take it like a man. He had an exit plan all along just because it’s good insurance. Even after it‘s over, Ms. Leo will remember his love protected her like an umbrella on a rainy day. If she ever needs anything in the future, he’ll be right there no matter what paths his life has taken. This combination offers True Love.
