Cancer + Leo
The enthusiastic and confident Leo could be the perfect solution for you, Cancer. If you lack self-confidence, Leo will lift your spirits and make you feel better than you’ve felt in a long time. Conversely, your sensitive and loving ways will make Leo feel appreciated.
The Sun rules Leo and the Moon rules Cancer. This is a classic combination in astrology: the Moon rules the feminine principles of nurturing, sensitive love, and Leo rules the principles of masculine, fiery aggression.
Water + Fire = Steam
Though these principles seem diametrically opposed, blending them leads to the process of creation — and relationship between man and woman. This partnership will have a strong karmic connection, balancing the principles of male and female. This should result in a thoroughly positive outcome.
Fire heats water, thereby creating steam, and water can quell and dampen the fire of creativity. This interplay of elements is at the heart of the Cancer/Leo combination. It’s vital for each of you to let the other be who they are: no judging, no controlling.
Leos must soften their approach, and you must learn to stand on your own two feet and not need constant approval.
On this basis the relationship will work. Otherwise, elementally speaking, the fire of love will be drowned in the waters of your emotion.
Your best Leo partners are those born between 15 August and 23 August. You may meet these people through your work. The extreme of this is the clandestine relationship with a boss or employer. Expect lots of passion and an intense love life with these Leos.
Those born between 23 July and 4 August could also have a financial or professional tie-in with you.
These Leos are lucky for you on a material level — they are your proverbial rabbit’s foot. Your energies blend well, and you stimulate their ambitions. In return, they are happy to lavish gifts and financial favours upon you. Not a bad arrangement if money, status and power are what you’re after.
Those born between 5 August and 14 August are co-ruled by Jupiter and are not very compatible with you. You feel overpowered by them. They tend to shoot for the stars without much preparation. This makes you uncomfortable and insecure; you prefer to know where you’re going and when you’re likely to get there.
Also, they are spontaneous and sometimes over-confident, and can come across as arrogant. You won’t like that at all.
