Cancer + Capricorn
There are some crucial differences between the signs of Cancer and Capricorn. Although Capricorn is your seventh or marital zone, your ruling planets are poles apart.
You are warm and demonstrative; Capricorn is not so good at expressing feelings.
Your Cancerian approach to life can be summed up as ‘The best things in life aren’t things.’ This is diametrically opposed to Capricorn, who is very ‘thing’-oriented. They usually aim for material and financial achievement; you have a far more simple and intuitive approach.

Capricorns like what money can buy, and often see their emotional wellbeing in terms of what they have. This applies to family life as well. They enjoy family life and have similar traditional values to you, but they put financial and material wellbeing higher up the list of critical ingredients than you do.
There are pluses with Capricorn, though. You will feel nurtured and supported by what Capricorn brings to the table in this relationship. Money doesn’t take the lead role in your story of a successful relationship, but you’re happy to have it — it is a means to an end.
Unfortunately, on some levels, this relationship may be just about convenience.
Both of you need to look deeper than the need for emotional (for you) or material (for them) security. There’s a subtle exchange going on: ‘I’ll do this, if you do that.’ Make sure you get clear on what you both expect from each other.
Sexually and emotionally, your signs seem to be at odds with each other. The sensitive and emotional Cancer needs more than the restrained affection Capricorn offers. It’s not that they won’t — they probably just don’t know how! You can try teaching them, but you’ll need patience.
Marriage and permanent bonds are likely with those born between 22 December and 1 January.
You really click with these people — this is no a one-night stand. There is a powerful attraction between you. You like the serious and stable energies they give off. Sometimes in this match the Capricorn is considerably older. If you’ve had to deal with issues of parental neglect or abuse, you may be attracted to an older Capricorn.
Capricorns born between 2 January and 10 January are the best match for you. They can fulfil most of your dreams. You can have a great physical relationship with them. They stimulate your imagination, both sensually and creatively. Art and culture will feature strongly in your relationship.
There’s sexual chemistry with Capricorns born between 11 January and 20 January, but this may be fun and only fun. Possibly, over time, your emotional nurture will loosen the rigidity of Capricorn and allow a more binding relationship, but it isn’t likely.
