Western Star Signs
You are both devoted and protective toward your friends and loved ones, but your temperaments are very different. Cancer is more of a feeling person, whereas Virgo is more of a thinking or practical, logical person. Virgo is more critical and more of a perfectionist, more aware of details, preciseness, and technical correctness, whereas Cancer doesn't value that as much.
Virgo is often too hard and self-critical and really appreciates Cancer's acceptance, sympathy, and support. But Virgo is also very sharp or sarcastic at times, which hurts Cancer very much. Overall, though, you two should get along well together.
Essentially, Cancer is a good person who needs to deal with family and emotional issues. Cancer's hugs are world class and Cancer's snuggles are second to none. 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. Virgo is essentially level-headed with something of a flair for statistics and analysis. Virgo is highly selective and prone to inquiries and examinations. Probably, Cancer will find Virgo to be practical, methodical and in possession of natural money handling abilities.
Cancer is sensitive, to say the least, and will not be able to handle incessant demands for perfection. This will, unfortunately, also apply in the area of sexuality. Make sure you don't ask for 'performances' that aren't in tune with Cancer's easy-going, slower and more receptive nature.
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.

Chinese Star Signs
While these two seem totally mismatched, there is the potential for a great relationship. As lovers they may help each other blossom in ways that neither could do alone. Their overall compatibility rating is 50%.
The Chinese Astrological Ox is neither slow witted nor clumsy. These powerful, dependable beings were meant to lead. While their approach to fulfilling a task may be slow and methodical, they are capable of great things and never lose sight of their goals. Their stamina is endless and they are detail conscious. They believe in getting things right the first time.
To outsiders Oxen may seem to be too serious and unable to "let their hair down." Being introverts, these are easy assumptions to make about Oxen. Also they are very independent and appear to have no regard for what others think of them. However, hidden behind that distant air shown to the world, is a being that feels pain, loneliness and regret that they do not connect well with others.
The Oxen's comforts and delights are derived from friends and family and work well done. As a friend, lover or family member the Ox makes a reliable and protective ally who is always tender and affectionate.
When away from the family and out in the world the Ox can be stubborn and dogmatic. They are not ones to back down or take much guff from anyone.
The Ox is a good source of honest advice.
The Ox needs to try to be less quick to judge others. When they see the value of those who have qualities different than their own they are well on their way to a warmer social life.
