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.
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.

In this step 3, zodiac signs, of the learn astrology guide to your natal chart/horoscope, you will learn about the Cancer zodiac sign, the first water sign of the zodiac.
Cancer is cardinal (initiating) in nature and is the only sign ruled by the Moon. Being a Water sign, the energy of Cancer relates to others via it's emotional nature. A Cancerian needs to feel warmth and acceptance and feelings from others. They won't feel at home relating on a rational or intellectual level. They need to know above all they that they are safe and accepted and cared for by the other person. Like the Crab that is their sign, they have a tough exterior but a soft inside. The Crab also needs to live near water and can't survive anywhere else.
The aspect of a Cancer needing to feel safe can often cause them to hark nostalgically after times gone by. The past can't change and is somehow something the Cancerian can fall back upon when the present seems too frightening or daunting. Countries have a sign associated with them for the date they were formed. America has it's Sun in Cancer. We can see a hint of this Cancerian nature with this country in it's love of sentimental movies, dreaming of bygone idyllic times and sports stars and that perfect family life and suburbia that seemed to exist somewhere in the past. Whether it ever existed we are not so sure but to a Cancerian the idea and the memories are enough. Some scientists say that water has a memory and this is much of what homeopathy is based on. The Cancerian is connected with this memory of Water. You often will find Cancerians with a love of old photos or movies or interested in their family roots.
Indeed the home and family are what provide the Cancerian with stability and security. They are known to treasure their own homes and have difficulty going off into the unknown. They make their homes warm and inviting and are some of the very best cooks and people to provide hospitality. A good family life is essential to them and they make natural and instinctive parents. Part of this comes from the Cancerian rulership by the Moon. The Moon is cyclical, waxing and waning and is connected to the rythms experienced on the Earth. As the archetypal mother symbol it is very much connected with the women's menstrual cycle and the tides and other cycles experienced on Earth. For this reason Cancerians seem to have an instinctive and intuitive understanding of the rythms of nature. Infact Cancerians are so connected to the rythms of the Moon that their energy will increase as the Moon waxes and decrease as the moon wanes. Chances are the werewolf is a Cancerian during the day time!
The energy of Cancer is cardinal in nature, which means Cancerians have a desire to start off new projects. They have great new ideas and can often become leaders in their field. They are known to be leaders in the fashion industry. They are also as we said some of the best cooks and some of the best nurses as they can feel the pain others are experiencing. On the shadow side of Cancer they can be some of the most needy people. They often need constant emotional reassurance and feedback, they can also use emotions to blackmail people and be emotionally manipulative.
The most compatible zodiac signs with Cancer are generally considered to be Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio and Pisces and the least compatible zodiac signs Aries and Libra.
Comparing sun signs is a quick and easy way to give a general idea of compatibility. However, to unlock the real power of astrology to fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them, we need to calculate other planet placement factors from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results to give more specific information.
