Find your compatibility
Western Star Signs
There can be an unusually warm loving bond between you, though your temperaments are quite different. Leo is very proud and wants recognition, appreciation, respect, and love. Cancer wants to be needed and desires sympathy, tenderness, and emotional support. Leo has difficulty accepting and expressing needs, sadness, or weakness, and is uncomfortable when Cancer expresses doubts, insecurities, weaknesses, or moodiness, but appreciates Cancer's warmth and support.
Leo is the more dominant of the two of you and is likely to take the lead in your relationship - which is fine with Cancer, who has no need to be on top.
Cancer is naturally inclined to be touchy about some, but not all relatives and needs to work on the family tree and make some sense of it all. To win points, Cancer can treat Leo to a most excellent piece of gold jewelry. Leo also appreciates Cancer's undivided attention.
By developing willpower, Leo can find creative ways to get you into the spotlight and shine. Leo may be playing the game of life stakes higher than Cancer may realize.
Cancer is not necessarily the most direct individual. Security is something Cancer is always aware of. Usually it's a top priority. Cancer is definitely strong and protective of turf.
