Sagittarius and Cancer compatibility? Sure, they’re not the most obviously compatible Sun Signs in astrology but this dating profile seems to be going too far.
I enjoy your blog and Weekend Australian column.
Thought you might enjoy this bit of astro-prejudice.
Off and on I do internet dating on a well-known site. A while ago i checked out the profile of a chap. He was a serious outdoorsy looking Sagittarian in a flak jacket, set against a river. However, at the bottom of his profile, it said: ‘No Cancerians’, invoking images of those old signs that used to prohibit certain types of people and dogs. How could my co-Moon girls’ magic not work? And could they have caused him so much grief?!
The Secret Of Sagittarius And Cancer Compatibility Is To Recall That They Have Different Styles Of Showing Affection
Dear Confused Crab,
How hilarious. Can you e-mail him, pretending to be another outdoorsy Saggo? Go on a date – something like the pair of you mountain biking along a river or climbing K2 or something else suitably Sagittarian? And then you FLUSH HIM OUT…Say, “so why do you say you don’t like Cancerians?” You could maybe wait until he was unbearably into you before confessing? There are some general tips and anecdotes on dating Sagittarius people here.
Or, put in your own ad and alter it to say NO SAGITTARIAN MEN IN FLAK JACKETS & see if he bites? Did you quite like the look of him, apart from him having banned your sign? Also, is a flak jacket like what you wear in a war zone? Is he a foreign correspondent? Or is the flak jacket just to protect against Cancerian females?
More seriously, Sagittarius and Cancer compatibility is helped when you recognize one vital fact. They’ve got different styles of showing affection. Cancers tend toward being nurturing and establishing emotional intimacy. Sagittarians display love by lightening your vibe and giving you space or adventure.
People always give or transmit what they’d like to have themselves. It’s so simple but leads to so many misunderstandings.
