Cancer: Sometime this is a good relationship. Sometimes, it’s even great. It’s water and water, your Scorpio Fixed sign water versus his Cancer Cardinal sign water. Emotions are bound to run high. That’s the fun news. It’s supposed to be wonderful. There’s a problem or two with this, though. It’s an indirect problem, but it’s a problem nonetheless.
What my files reveal is that this is a relationship that works for a while. It’s like a “one night stand” Scorpio style. That means it lasts for several years. It’s good, but it’s not great. It’s wonderful at times, and at certain periods, when the sun and the Moon are in the right place (Mars and Venus actually have a heavy hand in this as well), it feels like it will last forever and ever.
We’re back to the indirect problem. The oblique problem. “If he would just get out of the crab shell,” is the comment I’ve heard, more than once.
Being a Scorpio girl, you are the master of delicate manipulations of your subject. It’s not a mean or vindictive comment, most [if not all] males could use a little instruction. You’re just usually better at it than most. Regrettably, this comes across a Cancer carapace from time to time, and no matter what you do, your little efforts go unrewarded. That hurts. And the first thing a Scorpio girl does when her efforts are unrealized is that she redoubles her passion for the cause. She jumps in with both feet. She tackles the problem from a different angle. Scorpio women are accused of being many things, but one quality I always admire is their universal tenacity when it comes to working on a problem.
But the problem with the Cancer guy is that he just doesn’t seem to respond to normal stimulus. And what has worked so well on other guys doesn’t always work on him.
In the worst of these situations, I’ve watched as a Scorpio girl and Cancer guy sit in their separate domiciles, staring at the phone, trying to will it to ring. Neither one is willing to make that first call, that first attempt at communication to resolve this. It’s a problem, and I don’t have the answer. If I did, I would call.
