Western Star Signs
You share some similarities: both of you need security and are disinclined to take unnecessary, wild, or foolish risks. Departure from the safety of the well-known and familiar makes you both very uncomfortable. Radical changes or big gambles are not your style.
The major difference between you is that Capricorn is much more emotionally detached, somewhat dry or inexpressive of feelings and emotional needs, while Cancer is the very opposite.
Cancer requires (and gives) emotional support, tenderness, and sympathy much more than Capricorn does. Capricorn may seem hard, unfeeling or indifferent to Cancer at times, and Capricorn may well benefit from Cancer's softness and nurturing qualities.
Capricorn is also more ambitious and concerned with career, accomplishments, and the world at large, than Cancer is.
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.
Sexually and emotionally, your Sun signs are at odds: the sensitive and emotional Cancer requires more than your restrained kind of affection knows how to give. It's not that you won't; you just don't know how to. Cancer will need to show you their needs, patiently.
You both like to start things and to take the initiative. You're each restless, energetic, outgoing, opportunistic and ambitious. Probably, you're both more busy than bored.
