When Cancer and Capricorn form a friendship, it's an alliance characterized by tenacity and strong willpower. Capricorn is logical and down to earth; Cancer brings an emotional charge to the relationship. Both have high expectation for their friends; those standards are tempered by mutual respect. Cancer appreciates Capricorn's dedication, and Capricorn admires the tenacity of the Crab. Together, this will be a very successful and secure friendship.
This partnership has a strong foundation based on material and emotional security. Both Signs are dependable and conservative. Cancer can help Capricorn to relax a little and appreciate the rewards of their almost constant labor. Cancer will also be the one to polish and preserve the fruits of their shared experiences. Capricorn can help Cancer achieve more of their dreams and goals. A Capricorn friend will also keep a check on their pal's Crab-like tendencies, enlightening Cancer to the more important matters of life. This friendship succeeds due to their iron-clad commitment to its success and their shared need for security.
Cancer is ruled by the Moon, and Capricorn is ruled by Saturn. The Moon is a warm, feminine energy, and Saturn a cold, masculine one. The Moon is emotional and nurturing; it is about maternal care-giving and intuition, both of which are important to Cancer. Saturn uses integrity and discipline to achieve goals. Cancer will show Capricorn how to better enjoy life and how to appreciate beauty and comfort. Cancer softens Capricorn's hard edges, while the Seagoat provides a solid foundation that Cancer sometimes lacks. Capricorn can teach Cancer to be more disciplined and to get out of their shell and into the world to strive toward their dreams.
Cancer is a Water Sign, and Capricorn is an Earth Sign. Earth Signs are about possessions, and the Cancer-Capricorn friends usually surround themselves with beautiful things -- traditional and efficient homes, gorgeous artwork, expensive cars. Their desire to be economically stable and their love of finery ensures that these two will understand and appreciate how much hard work goes into maintaining their accustomed levels of comfort. Additionally, they are a practical pair, and they rarely have problems caused by one friend behaving too extravagantly or ostentatiously.
Cancer and Capricorn are Cardinal Signs. Both are initiatory, active and ardent. Though this can be a catalyst for some dynamite conflicts, it can provide Capricorn with an emotional pillar, as Cancer is entirely dedicated to the friendship. In turn, both come up with new ideas, Capricorn excelling in brass tacks of any plan and Cancer in its more emotional aspects. These Signs will get along well if Capricorn and Cancer each have their niche in the friendship.
The best aspect of the Cancer-Capricorn bond is their utter dedication to each other and their mutual commitments to the same goals. Both enjoy luxury and nice things and aren't afraid of a little hard work to get them. Their mutual interests, stringent morality and upward spiraling make theirs a highly compatible friendship.
