Most people don't really think of Cancers and Libras as compatible, based on what I've read and heard, but for some reason, I attract a lot of Cancer men, and I don't know why. I especially noticed there's something between Libra women and Cancer men, a girl I know is a Libra and her boyfriend is a Cancer and they have been dating for nearly two years. What do you think of this? You don't only have to comment based on romantic relationships between these two, it could be friendships, family and etc.

Female:
Sun:Libra
Moon:Aquarius
Mercury:Scorpio
Venus:Scorpio
Mars:Virgo
Jupiter:Gemini
Saturn:Gemini
Uranus:Aquarius
Neptune:Aquarius
Pluto:Sagittarius
Lilith:Capricorn
Asc node:Cancer

Male:
Sun:Cancer
Moon:Cancer
Mercury:Cancer
Venus:Cancer
Mars:Cancer
Jupiter:Gemini
Saturn:Taurus
Uranus:Aquarius
Neptune:Aquarius
Pluto:Sagittarius
Lilith:Capricorn
Asc node:Cancer

Based on this basic info, what do you think of the compatibility between these two? On a side note, the love is very raw and passionate and real.

And lemme tell you something, a man with so much Cancer energy will equal heavily emotional days and moodiness.

Compatibility is based on consideration of the whole birth chart of both people, not just sun signs. Can't really tell much just from these planets in their signs. Compatibility is determined more by the actual aspects between planets in the two different charts.

So if the female's Moon in Aquarius were conjunct the male's Uranus and trine his Jupiter in Gemini, this could be the beginning of some good compatibility.

This. For example, three of my closest friends are a Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio who have Sagittarius, Aries, and Sagittarius Moon respectively. In Sun sign astrology they wouldn't be compatible with me because I have Gemini Sun and Scorpio Moon. However, the Sag Moons are conjunct my IC and the Virgo friend has her Virgo stellum on my ascendant and trining my Neptune. I also have my Venus and Mercury conjunct the North Node of the Taurus friend, and the Scorpio friend's Mercury is on my Moon/Pluto conjunction. I also have good Vertex aspects with all three.

Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars in Cancer will definitely give him all the Cancer traits, good and bad, but good synastry can easily neutralize any sign incompatibility.

I have found some of my friends are a couple of Libra woman and Cancer man.

The Libra woman with venus in scorpio has been married with the Cancer man. The Cancer man was first introduced to me, but, no, thank you, not ready to marry in a young age. Then he was introduced to Libra woman and got married soon.

While my childhood friend, a Libra woman with venus in virgo, has been in a relationship nearly 10 years with the Cancer man. The sad thing is she has asked him about (like about 3 years ago?) when he will propose her because she has desperately wanted a marriage, they have on-off relationship.

Another one is also The Cancer man with venus in Gemini and the Libra woman with venus in scorpio. Has been in 2 years.

The thing I have noticed is, if the Libra woman has venus in Scorpio, they will most likely attract Cancer sun or mars, very often.

I rarely find Libra women with venus in Sag or venus in Libra with the Cancer men.

Libra women tend to seduce/attract their opposite sex with their venus and it can be very obvious to some people. I think Cancer influence people can pick it up. That's the start of the compatibility between them.

Turkish, I am a Libra with Cancer on the descendant. Cancer men are attracted to me but I haven't feel the same. I think you might attract men with a lot of Cancer energy in their chart because your Ascendant is in Cancer. They like your appearance. Their planets light up your first house and hep you to shine in their presence. There is a good chance a lot of men with sun in Cancer also have Venus in Cancer which would make your appearance their personal idea of beauty.

That being said, my father is a Libra with a Cancer moon and my mother is a Cancer with a Virgo moon and Leo AC. They have been together for over 45 years. I think Cancer's love of home and security is complementary to Libra's devotion in partnership.

Why do you think a Libra woman with Venus in Scorpio attracts a Cancer sun or mars?
What could be the reason?

I did the whole natal birth chart calculation, and it said that my Ascendant is in Gemini, but someone else on my other thread pointed out that it might be wrong.. so I don't really know,
I am confused. I have to admit that physically, I do look more like a Cancer Ascendant, but then I have a Gemini like personality at first when people meet me -
witty, eccentric, bubbly, funny and etc. Also, what do you mean by your last statement? Sun and Venus in Cancer men being attracted? Did you mean it has something to do with my Venus in Scorpio?

Turkish and hearttreasure:

Your observations and experience duplicate mine. I am a male Libra, of the Leo Pluto generation.

I've had several rewarding encounters with Cancer-strong women. In most cases this was a Sun Cancer, but more recently a Leo woman with Cancer Mars made a very pleasant if somewhat mysterious visit.

Possibly I'm over-simplifying, but what this looks like to me is a Cancer/Scorpio water theme. Other than my Scorpio Moon, there are no other placements in my chart that even vaguely suggest why I might appeal to a Cancer-signature woman. I'm neither movie-star handsome nor well-heeled, so looks and money do not enter into the initial attraction.

I have all the elements in my chart, but the one that most often brings me into good sync with others is water.

Other favorable planetary contacts no doubt have assisted in my Cancer relationships, and close aspects would certainly make the attractions more pronounced, but the water element alone seems to have great pull. It seems to impart a kind of sympathy between the individuals, the Scorpio possibly acting as a welcome shoulder for the Cancer.

You might believe that a Sag Venus (me) would veer away from clingy Cancer. This happened once, though I've since known several whose cling would be quite welcome.

I recall reading long ago that, in a very general way, water-heavy nativities enjoy the aeration that Libra and other air signs offer. Bubbling air apparently lightens up Water's otherwise soggy existence. I haven't noticed this so much with the other water signs, however, as I have with Cancer.

Ahhh, no wonder I think your posts are too cute lol!! I love Libran men...they (and Aquarian men) are my weakness...esp if they have a lot of Water. I think the reason I attract them has to do with my chart ruler (Moon) being in the 7th house, Trine Venus.

I've actually dated and/or had feelings for 5 Libra with Cancer Moon men, and each time they are just too cute for words (and one other Libra with Virgo Moon man). I'm currently off and on obsessed with the only Libra I've ever met (out of the 5 Libra/Cancer Moon I've met) who had his Sun Conjunct Saturn with his Juno/Saturn Conjunction Conjunct my Juno in Libra.

Surprisingly, the one I was most incompatible with and ghosted me (ie was the only one who I didn't end the relationship) had his Mars also in Cancer (my Mars is in Cancer). The others had a stronger masculine Mars in (esp) Fire signs (one had a Libra Mars Conjunct Pluto).

The one I'm currently obsessed with has his Mars in Scorpio with Scorpio Mercury. His Venus is in Leo. And again, I've never met a more down to earth Libra with the Sun/Juno/Saturn stuff. I'm a Cancer Sun/Asc/Mars with Cap Moon in the 7th Trine Venus. I'm not sure what it is about me that he finds attractive, as my Asc is in Cancer and his Venus is in Leo...literally the only thing I can think of is I am a Cancer Sun in the 1st Conjunct Caner Asc with Leo Mercury. Anyway I adore them, and they appreciate beauty so you know they are with you and think you're beautiful lol (I know I know I'm sorta vain lol).

Anyway, I love Libra men, and for everyone who says they are indecisive...I've never experienced that...at least if their feelings are involved. Or maybe I'm just meeting Libra guys who are heavily water.

Thats alot of cancer in 1 chart.
The Female has som nice placements to cope with it, but how will that aquarius moon of hers cope with it and, as well, how will he deal with it.. Im sceptical, but Love conquers all, even astrology sometimes.

What could be the reason?

Cancer influence people are sucker for kind friendly people in the first meeting. Because they are very sensitive and sometime may take everything personal especially the mars in cancer.

Air sign especially Libra can really make a good first impression due to their understanding that people need company and they want to be your good company. Superficially, this can lead Cancer right away feeling welcomed.

I have never met Cancer influence people will be fine with people who make bad first impression to them. So, I think Cancer influence people need to learn to make a better judgement. People in general may have masks. (Edit: no, I meant: layers)

Air signs with some water in their charts approach socializing with some emotionally in touch with surrounding, like showing care with other people emotions (although how air signs process it actually very different with the water sun). Again, Cancer is a very sensitive, well I think the cardinal element are more sensitive than other element, so they like some careness from people as they care too much with surroundings.

Cancer is very sexual. But their sexuality intuned with their emotions. They secretly crave intensity and drama, wave of emotions, they NEED the feelings, hate numb people. They bond with people through sharing the same negative/positive "feelings" but usually the negative one at least one time. Like for example, Cancer influence people are known for their whining tendency as for some people see it as a negative feelings, especially the sun and mars in cancer, sometimes mercury but need to see the aspect. They will try to share their negative feelings and whoever response emotionally with them or share the same story with them, wooooossshh (like a crab coming out from their shell), they will "see" you as a potential, they will see it as a care to their feelings, then slowly building an attachment. Constantly having different opinion between you two? They'll slowly build a resentment. So they will tend to fall with agreeable people which Libra is one of the best candidate (who can understand the circumstances) and scorpio or pisces who can understand the feelings.

Back to the sexuality. Cancer is sometimes psychic, they can sense something especially the bad, the dark, the inconvenience feelings, the same as when they sense if someone is intense or not. Due to they secretly crave intensity, they will feel attracted to scorpio placement because they can't help with feelings. This usually a Cancer who has too much sensitivity, moody, love drama (because I know some doesn't like it, and fall to dreamy romantic Pisces or hardworking Capricorn), want to experience intense feeling equal intense sex. Feelings move them (it doesn't mean they don't think, but the ratio of feeling is higher). While air sign, thoughts move them (it doesn't mean they don't feel).

The compatibility between cancers and libras:
- both can be passive aggressive and somehow they prefer it than dealing with super aggressive people. But watch out both building resentment because neither want to reveal their truth.
- libras love pleasing people and cancers feel nurtured by it. Cancers love giving their attention and Libras secretly a sucker for attention, especially from their love one.
- Cancers feel always welcomed (instead of their crazy mood that can drive people away) by Libras, Libras feel there will always someone waiting for them and they won't feel or look alone.
- etc.. I think there are a lot, but I am too tired.

This' based on my experience.

My ex is a Cancer sun but most of his chart is in fire and earth, and currently has mars in Cancer - lots of works a.k.a drama in the relationship.

In the past I tend to avoid Cancer influence people, because I can't stand my Mom and my brother being consistently pushy and whining tendency also sometimes can't make a room for you to breathe. lol. I think never say never.

My ex husband was a Libra male and I am a Cancer sun. I think things might have gone better had we been more older when we married. I just felt like he lacked the ambition that I did , lied a lot and after 3 kids I wanted to find someone more dependable , responsible in life.

I have a male friend who is a libra and I love the heck out of him, he is gay though but we cut up a lot. My moon is also in Libra so I guess thats why I take to him like I do.

hearttreasure, thanks for that splendid essay on the Cancer/Libra attraction.

To your work I would add that, at least in one Libra man's case, the Cancer connection has usually developed a good deal of trust early on without the usual annoying deliberation for which Libra is well known.

Another important consideration when the pairing is Male Libra/Female Cancer:
the gastronomy factor in this couple is nothing short of joyous for the Libra. No one brings to fruition better than a Cancer woman the old expression: "The shortest route to a man's heart is through his stomach."

With great pleasure I could make a list of the Cancer-flavored women who know this truth and practice it and have left an indelible mark on this man's heart with their culinary affections.

Even outside of romance - that timid knock on the front door might well be the Crab lady from across the street with her thoughtfully composed care package of leftover beef stroganoff, potato dumplings, German chocolate cake, . . .

Libra eats this up.

What man wouldn't???

Possibly some corresponding domestic gestures occur when the genders are reversed?
