Masterful Scorpio should make a good mate for the sensitive and vulnerable cancer. Astrologically, Cancer and Scorpio have a better chance than most people of blending together their personalities. While jealousy may plague both from time to time, their great mutual ability to love deeply will usually limit periods of dissension. Scorpio is well equipped to cope with Cancerian moods. Excess energy, which Scorpio exudes, will act as a strong tonic for Cancer`s reticence. Scorpio and Cancer could well prove to be the ideal marriage combination. Scorpio`s intense loyalty and devotion will sit well with Cancer`s innate desire to be mothered. The only problem could be that the natural urge of Cancer to lead and dominate might be met in equal measure by Scorpio`s stubborn resistance. They must also conquer their common negative traits of suspiciousness and intense jealousy. Both are ruled by the emotions and both are water signs. Scorpio can at times be too self-controlled for Cancers affectionate nature, and Cancer can occasionally snap at the Scorpio girl, ruffling her calm composure. Can be very constructive or very destructive, depending on the next wave.
