You get a match between the Cancer woman and Leo man.
Normally, you would think that such a combination would lead to a very mutually supporting and rewarding relationship. This judgment would only be true if things are exactly what they look like.
However, when it comes to the Cancer woman and the Leo man, and many other signs of the horoscope for that matter, what you see is not always what you get.
In many cases, your eyes are deceiving you.
Things that may seem very solid actually turn out to be quite squishy and liquid inside. This is definitely true with the Cancer.
You have to understand, the Cancer person, whether a man or a woman, is based on the crab. A crab has a very hard exterior, this exterior is called an exoskeleton and it can be quite tough. However, once you are able to crack that exterior, what is inside is very, very soft. This is the dichotomy that the Cancer woman and Cancer people in general, live with.
They feel that they have to compensate and project a tough exterior, while inside they have their doubts, insecurities and inadequacies. In other words, they are just like everybody else in that they have challenges to deal with internally, but they choose to cope with it by projecting the very opposite.
The Leo, on the other hand, is actually going through the same thing, but in a very different way. The Leo believes that the best defense is a damn good offense.
Make no mistake about it. When it comes to taking the offense, the Leo can definitely bring it. They can go into any situation and look like they are in control. They look like they know what to do and when to do it. However, despite the appearances of being in control and being fully aware of the situation, they often take action when they only have a fraction of the information that they need to make a truly wise decision.
As you can probably already tell, this kind of thinking and this way of behaving often means that the Leo is not enjoying the kind of success he or she deserves, whether it is in the realm of relationships, career, education, health and other aspects of the human experience.
So, what happens when you mix these two characters together?
Interestingly enough, Cancer woman and Leo man love compatibility can produce a lot of sparks in a positive way.
The Gorgeous Leo Man
Leo men can be very appealing to women born under Cancer. In this day and age there are so many weak men. There are so many men that are basically just glorified mama’s boys. There are also other men who are a little bit stronger and independent of their mothers who are basically just grown up brats and they are so wrapped up in themselves and so self-absorbed, that they are basically fearful of the world stopping to revolve around them.
Compared to these characters, which are quite numerous actually, the Leo male personality really stands out.
The Leo is bold. The Leo is not afraid of rescuing a damsel in distress. The Leo is more than willing to die for a cause. The Leo is more than eager to put the needs of others in front of his needs. He rushes in and takes care of business.
This is attractive to a lot of people. This is appealing because it makes people gravitate towards the Leo. They think that the Leo is a leader, because a leader is always willing to lay down his life for his followers.
Good stuff, right? Keep reading below.
The Impression Made By Cancer Woman on the Leo Man
Cancer woman is no slacker at her end. The Cancer woman projects a great public image of strength. If you are looking for somebody who seems to know where she is going, the Cancer woman can definitely give you that impression.
The Cancer woman can make you feel that she is strong, hard headed and driven. She can give you the best impression in the world.
He Is Bound To Step on Your Toes
The downside to the Leo is that, he is so brash and so bold that he is bound to step in your toes. He can either invade your emotional space unwittingly, or he can basically just blunder into emotional spaces that you do not want other people to touch.
You might have a particularly sore spot or a sore memory and he might bring it up carelessly, and worse, you might feel that he is judging you in a very unfair way. In other words, he is bound to step on your emotional toes.
Do Not Punish Him by Clamming Up
The typical Cancer female response to emotional challenges is to basically clam up.
In fact, they could clam up so well that they end up emotionally walling off the person that is making them uncomfortable. This can be a serious issue.
When you shut off people emotionally in your life, that relationship basically starts to die.
Real relationships grow, not because everything is a bed of roses and everything is nice and happy, no. Real relationships grow because there is a lot of commotion, there is a lot of hurts, there is a lot of challenges, there is a lot of pushing back and forth, there is a lot screaming, but at the end of the day, with every down turn, your relationship keeps going higher and higher.
In many cases, your relationship has to dip downwards for it to be pushed back up. In many cases, you have to be threatened with loss, for you to realize what you are about to lose, so you could realize the value of your relationship.
That is just the reality of real relationships.
Unfortunately, Cancer women may be so sensitive and so petty that they feel that the only to deal with negative input is just to shut it out.
This is really unfortunate and this is the core of Cancer woman and Leo man love compatibility.
To put it more specifically, the relationship is all about avoiding this particular coping mechanism. In many cases, it is not even a coping mechanism at all; because coping mechanisms help you survive a particular situation. This does not really help you survive, because it kills the relationship.
The key to Cancer woman and Leo man love compatibility is open communication.
You have to understand, that open communication does not necessarily mean that you always hear the stuff that you want to hear. In many cases, open communication means that you end up hearing stuff that are unpleasant, you end up opening your ears to things that might hurt. However, to take
Cancer woman and Leo man love compatibility to a higher level, open communication has to be there, and most importantly, emotional honesty. Listen without intending to pay back. Listen without intending to hit back.
At the other end of the equation, the Leo man really needs to mature and understand how you say something is just as important as what you have to say.
When both partners are able to commit to a relationship that has an open channel of communication, both partners can mature in the relationship.
This is the biggest hope and the biggest project when it comes to Cancer and Leo relationships and compatibility.
