Famous Cancer-Sagittarius Couples: Mike Tyson and Robin Givens, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Marcel cerdan and Edith Piaf, Billy Crudup and Jennifer Connellly
This smokin’ hot combination is based on crude physics. People always want what they can’t have. Cancer wants a sure thing and Sagittarius wants to keep her options open. As witness Tom Cruise closing in on Katie Holmes, Cancer men are among the most possessive of the zodiac. Unlike the other two possessive signs we know, Taurus and Scorpio, Cancer tries to bind the person to them with egregious acts of kindness. Furthermore, Cancer men specialize in rescue operations – what better way to bind someone to you than to make them dependent? If the crafty little sidler acts indifferent, he’s only buying time to make his next move. He hides his feelings so as to avoid being rejected or humiliated. Sagittarius, of course, will have none of any of this. She’s looking for a good life, adventure, freedom, potential and likely, sooner or later, greener pastures. Sooner if the crab gets really clingy. She will ignore his crab-by ways if she gets enough money to keep the good times rolling (his or hers or theirs). A long trip every now and then goes a long way towards keeping her on the domestic side, though it isn’t appealing to Cancer who wonders, “Why would anyone ever want to leave home?” Cancer likes to sleep in his own bed every night while Sag wonders what it’s like to watch an eclipse from Mongolia or slurp real onion soup at 3 am at Les Halles.
How to Attract a Cancer Man as a Sagittarius Woman: Ask him how he likes the food, if appropriate, or slip into the conversation the one line he’s been waiting his whole life to hear, “What’s your favourite restaurant?” Let him cook for you even if it means actually sitting down somewhere for a meal. Ask about his mother.
How to Attract a Sagittarius Woman as a Cancer Man: You have to offer her something without seeming to take something else away. This is tricky. Let me give you an example … “I would love to be the father of your children [after we take that ‘round the world cruise][you’re in such great shape, you’d be a size 10 again in no time][my mom will take care of them so we have plenty of time together]. You’ll probably meet because you look at her and think, “There’s an easy going, open, fun looking gal.” You’ve noticed how she talks to “everyone”. Imagine your surprise to find out she’s not easy, just friendly. And she most certainly on closer scrutiny does talk to “everyone”. Hmmm. Now it seems she really might be available and that wasn’t in the original game plan. That’s just your subconscious way of tricking yourself past your fear of rejection.
Degree of Romance: Neither sign is particularly interested in romance but they will go to great lengths to fuss over one another and nurture mutual well being. They are equallyconcerned that each stays healthy in mind, body and spirit.
Degree of Passion: There’s something about a Cancer man that totally personalizes Sagittarius’ passion. If there is one partner who can direct her arrow of desire, it is Cancer.
Degree of Friendship: These two share an innocence which makes them quite compatible below the obvious level of superficial differences. These signs are quincunx one another, different in element, personality and modality [as different as two signs can get]. Both deal with psychic complexities and Jungian archetypes and both have a guileless urge to simply know or “get” the human, eternal truths behind the complexities. Is this friendship? I think it’s something even better.
Degree of Marriage: There is a nice balance of energies that makes a compatible marriage. Both partners like peace and serenity, good will and win-win nurturing situations. They tend to bring out the very best in one another.
Progression of Relationship: Cancer keeps trying to get close and intimate while Sag is going for “getting to know you” fun and adventure. They quickly learn of each other’s good intentions and how to compromise gracefully. They really love and take care of one another and any children. Cancer makes sure they are safe and sound. Sagittarius makes sure they grow in the light..
Sex: Sexual passion is the secret glue to this bond. It is absolutely awesome, very play-full and child like in its openness and light hearted sharing of absolutely everything. Each time they come together is like the first time!
When It’s Over: It doesn’t need to end but if it does, it’s likely to be orchestrated kindly without dwelling on mistakes or who’s to blame. They both tried their hardest and know the other one did too. Some things just don’t work out. The hope will be continued cherishing of what they created together with a win for everyone. We vote this the couple most likely to stay in touch with their ex’s parents and family.
