Aries and Cancer. Fire and Water. The Crab is so different from you that the relationship depends entirely on you, on your attitude and on how much you can take.
Cancer is very attached to family and (s)he wants to have a home very much. You feel the need to conquer the world, to take risks, to start new projects, to have a larger perspective. Cancer longs for stability and is terrorized by your adventurous spirit: you scare him/her completely.
When you try to explain to him/her that you want to do something great for the human kind, money or friends, (s)he will just ask you why you can't have a regular job like all the others, be someone's subordinate. Because an Aries, even when (s)he is employed in a company, will still cook up secret plans to become independent: you are the world's enterprisers. You will probably try anything to reach this goal, as if you escaped from a prison. And Cancer will ask you why you don't spend more time at home! That's nerve, isn't it? Cancer doesn't have your unlimited ambition so (s)he will accept the Aries's explanations, but still, (s)he will never understand how work can be more important than family.
If you succeed in getting over it and over the Cancer's caprices (it's a very changing and moody sun sign, both as far as men and women are concerned), the Crab will offer you a dream-like family life, because here (s)he feels fulfilled.
Sexually, the differences between you two will be quite obvious. Cancer wants romanticism, feelings, long caressing, tender whispers, and you simply don't have the time for such things: ardent passion, this is what you want, but this is what scares Cancer. Aries is not very sentimental, and Cancer will often feel disappointed and it will take a great effort from your part to satisfy your beloved shell fish. Oh, if you can write him/her a poem, or something like that, you will be covered for a longer time, because (s)he never forgets, especially when someone helps him/her or gives him/her something.
Aries likes flirting every now and then but, unfortunately, Cancer can't forget that either. (S)He is very emotional and, as we said before, moody. His/Her caprices will make you go crazy because when you least expect it, the Crab withdraws under his/her shell. To get him/her out of there, you need much patience and Aries has a limited reserve of it.
It will not take long until you get the impression that Cancer is always complaining and fawning and that his/her mood changes all the time; on the other hand, Cancer will think you are insensitive and heartless if you tell him/her to his/her face. That happens because Aries does not have the necessary subtlety to notice the little (often tiny...) details that can hurt a Cancer.
To make this relationship last, you will both have to give in a lot and to work on communication, discuss as much as possible, try to understand each other. Of course, there are patient Aries people, too, who like staying at home on Saturday evenings. But they are probably on Mars or on the Moon. That means they either don't exist or will be registered as new life forms when they are discovered. And there are Cancerians that are not emotional, also on the Moon. So it doesn't work in the cruel reality...
If you feel you can invest all your energy (and even more) in the house, not in your career, if you think you can stand moods and lamentation - it will surely work. You might even like it because Cancer, when (s)he feels (s)he is loved, offers everything in return: and "everything" means much, much love and devotion. If only...
