When you meet a quirky Aquarian it can be love at first sight, for the sexual attraction is intense. This fascination is partly due to the very different ways in which you each approach the world.
Aquarius is intellectually adventurous, emotionally detached and fairly self-contained. Cancer is creative, yet deeply emotional and quite tender at heart, beneath that legendary shell. Your sensuality and romantic imagination will intrigue the Water Bearer, whose sexual fires are stoked by your willingness to enjoy the excitement of those unconventional Aquarian appetites.
Cardinal Cancer, a Water Sign, is ruled by the changing Moon, while unconventional Aquarius, an Air Sign, is ruled by structured Saturn and offbeat Uranus. Saturn is intellectual, cool and structured, while the Moon is nurturing, inward-looking and growth-oriented. This mixture, when put in a structured goal-directed environment, can be very productive, due to your canny creativity and motivated emotional power, combined with the Water Bearer’s lateral thinking and ability to maintain a steady approach. The combination of nurtured growth and structured development and of masculine and feminine energy is potentially rewarding, but you’ll need to develop mutual goals and work together on projects that you can share, so that the energies can be put to work instead of degenerating into jealousy and restlessness.
The Water Bearer’s need for freedom and independence can be quite threatening, for stability and security are high on your list of needs. Aquarius, who is fundamentally a lone wolf, likes to spend plenty of time alone to explore the mental avenues so dear to that Sign. To be fair, your emotional nature, which is both demonstrative and possessive can imperil this independence and hem in the Water Bearer, who will then retreat to an ivory tower, if not actually packing up and moving to Katmandu.
You need emotional closeness, but Aquarius fears this kind of intimacy. If you love an Aquarian, you’ll need to modify your demands if you want to keep the relationship alive.
