To get a complete picture of someone through astrology we need to take all those other planets and their interactions into.

Summary of Cancer compatibility
The most compatible signs with Cancer are generally considered to be Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio and Pisces. The least compatible signs with Cancer are generally considered to be Aries and Libra.
Comparing sun signs can give a good general idea of compatibility. However, this is just a quick and easy way to compare, and it's going to have lots of exceptions on this broad level.
That's because people are more than just their sun sign. There are other planets which also affect someone's personality. This creates billions of permutations making each Cancer slightly different. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet positions from their date of birth and then compare them to your own. This unlocks the real power of astrology and gives much more useful and specific information, such as how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the astrology compatibility readings page.
Cancer compatibility forums
Here you can share experiences and opinions on dating, marriage and affairs, whether you're a Cancer or have experience with one.
You'll find that some of these forums are generally positive in tone, and some are generally negative. That doesn't guarantee that will be your experience, however you are very likely to recognize some common patterns which can be fascinating.
Some relationship combinations are much more common than others. Some sun signs are also much more chatty than others. Some are more likely to compliment (or complain!) about a partner. Each forum therefore tends to have a fairly consistent trend to the comments.
Please keep in mind though that people are much more than just their sun sign. Beyond a point Cancer compatibility varies due to the individuals other planet positions when they were born. You need a real astrology reading to understand a real relationship.

This site looks at how astrology can be used to understand and predict people and relationships. I have over 2500 pages exploring the ways astrology affects love, sex and compatibility.
How does astrology compatibility work?
It's often assumed that the best relationships involve people who are substantially identical with similar temperaments. The reality however is that the best relationships involve people who are identical in some areas, but opposite in others. For example introverts are nearly always more suited to other introverts, but intelectual people are often more suited to emotional people (opposites). The logical grouping of personality traits used in astrology provides an ideal framework to identify, measure and predict this phenomenon.

What Horoscope Signs Are Compatible With Each Other
Astrology divides all human traits into groups. Because of the logical and consistent way that traits are grouped there are intervals between groups which are more compatible than others. Mathematically, astrology compatibility works in a similar way to music theory with some combinations of notes being more harmonious than others.
The origins of astrological compatibility
Why are there 12 zodiac signs? Because the number 12 has mathematical properties which make it ideal for any science involving pattern recognition. It's the smallest number with five factors (1, 2, 3, 4, 6). It's no coincidence that there are 12 zodiac signs. The science defined the signs; the signs didn't define the science. There are far more constellations than just the 12 which were chosen.
Where do the concepts such as houses, elements, polarity etc used in astrology come from? Astrology allocates distinctive labels to groups with common features. For example, traits which are common to people of 3 of the 12 zodiac signs are associated with the 4 elements (fire, water, air, earth). The labeling system used is thousands of years old and gives the field its new age image. These labels are however merely an intuitive memory aid. Behind them is a science based on patterns and extrapolation using a duodecimal (base 12) system.
It's certainly possible to learn astrology without a knowledge of the math behind it, and there is far more to astrology than just these patterns, however it's safe to say that the earliest astrologers were mathematicians at heart, and not magicians.
Can astrology help me understand my partner?
Yes! Most people are amazed by how much behavior and personality is predictable via astrology. Most people are of course skeptical until they see it work with their own eyes. The most common feedback I get from my first time clients is shock at the accuracy and detail of their reading. Many believe that the vague information in tabloid horoscopes or free astrology reports is 'as good as it gets', when often those aren't even written by an astrologer.
How accurate is astrology?
Astrology is a complex field. There are hundreds of factors producing billions of permutations which make up someone's natal chart, which is as unique as a fingerprint. Makes sense, as each person and relationship is of course unique.
No website or book can list each of these billions of combinations. However a good degree of accuracy is available by looking just at sun signs (also called your zodiac sign, or star sign). Everyone knows what those are, and it's fun to explore them.

Synastry and compatible astrology signs

If you see references to astrology compatibility, horoscope compatibility, zodiac compatibility, star sign compatibility, sun sign compatibility, relationship astrology, love astrology, sexual astrology etc - don't worry, it's all the exact same thing.
Astrology: Scam or science?
Astrology is a controversial subject. Some people swear by it, some think it's bogus, some think it's cheesy. The reality is that it can be any or all of these, depending on the source. Astrology is only as good as the astrologer.
