Cancer - Cancer
You can see their wheels turning as they looked into each other’s eyes: “You’re a Moonchild too?” They already had decided that they were interested in each other. Now the two Crabs were wondering, silently to themselves, “Is this good, or not?” Worry, preoccupation with their loved ones and family and their strong cardinality would all be thrown into the hopper. “Would we get in each other’s way? Would we be always fighting?” The lunar surface is scarred with shots from meteorites. Metaphorically, the moonchildren are subjected to shots from their own worry mills every night. Their own assessment of this match is all important. For it really is in the insecure internal center of themselves where each of these two would make their own determination as to whether both of them could be in the same union, coupling, effort, company. Some Cancers would conclude: “If they worry about financial insecurity and being loved and the “moody blues” as much as I do, maybe, just maybe, we could provide reassurance and a welcome affectionate concern to each other”. Then again, the other might conclude that this is too much worry for one couple, and a focused, simpler earth sign or disengaged air sign would be better. Who knows? Only you two do.
Then they might say: “Hold it. Let’s not ponder too deeply! Wow, we would be interested in hard work and saving money and good food and building a strong family. Our insight and wisdom and strong defense of those in trouble – all these things we would be harmonic over. But when we were blue and felt like crying, who would turn to to get a hug from?” When both were worrying about the future and the bank account and moping, who would fold their arms, make some impartial sense, tap their feet and give a clear look at the future, without all that Cancerian worry? That would be a central question. Marriage is strongly preferred over just casually shacking up. That is why this question is so important. Oh well, the two of them will have to talk about it. They would have to come to a collective made up mind.
Positive Postulate: A “positive postulate” here is a natural. They are both tender in love and want to be treated with sensitivity. Their mutual value system would act like a bulwark against the imagined or real dangers that they might be facing. Even though they could end up struggling with what is really important, they could always settle with their Moonchild heads, and come to a peaceful and productive plan for their big family’s activities.
Romance Recommendation: The crab does not do romance without the all important ramifications covered. “Frivolous in love” does not describe them, and they could not be. Knowing that they are both timed to the Lunar clockwork, they might even understand when they were both feeling cooler, or sadder, and did not want to be involved in romance at certain times. This could truly be an advantage, and they could communicate about this in their own Cancerian language that they might develop on their own, being so astrologically in tune with each other. It should be said that individual charts and aspects would be extra important in this regard, and they should get readings for this purpose.
Conflict Quotient: A conflict between these two might make complex formidable feelings come up from deep inside. Things that only come out in a fight could emerge at emotionally strenuous moments. This could provide for a cornucopia of issues. They would have to have patience with one another.
Peace Parlay: Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" After two Cancers got going and had a few years under their belts, their choice for boring times might be the most important. Since so much is happening inside their hearts and minds, well chosen places and times of “boredom” could be key.
Keep Up The Interest Graph: These two would probably be open and disclosing about their own internal temperatures. They would share their feelings and say: “Hey, you know, I am getting the feeling that we need a shot in the arm.” The other would not ignore, like another more distractible sign. They would listen to each other. Unless real deep hurt or an undisclosed agenda was involved, they could make adjustments and perhaps spend money in different areas of fun and even budget for it.
Seven Year Itchiness: There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. The 7 Year Itch in either of these, followed through on, and continued, would be a big sign of danger for the pair. Delicate care of each other’s hearts would be their watchword. Infidelity for this super serious Water sign would pose danger to the whole relationship. Of course, it would, you say? But for these two it would be like coming back from the edge of the cliff.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 80% Positive Long Term - 60% Short Term. A short term relationship that ended quickly would be because they both determined it would be just too complicated and actually had deep discomfort. If they proceeded, the long term would disclose shared values, mutuality of purpose, enjoying making decisions about long term security, family and home.
