Cancer and Aquarius? You are so different that only with a great effort (especially from you, dear Cancer!) you'll make the relationship work. Aquarius is an Air sign, and you are a Water sign: two elements that don't stay together too much and they never mix.
Aquarius is a sort of "science man" of the zodiac: (s)he is inclined towards research and technology, and (s)he is guided by reason in everything (s)he does: love itself is rational to an Aquarius. And as you are guided first of all by intuition and feelings, your reactions can be very different in similar situations. As a Water sign, you have a certain instinct in relating to people, an instinct that Aquarius doesn't have and doesn't understand. It's not something that can be felt, seen, smelled, analyzed.
Aquarius can seem (and often is) a little distant, cold and... (s)he doesn't seem to get involved as much as you do or as you would like him/her to. You were probably very attracted to his/her mysterious look, but you will soon discover that it isn't just a way to seduce: this is how Aquarius is, mysterious. And no matter how hard you try to understand what happens in his/her soul, you'll always have the impression that there is an invisible barrier, beyond which you cannot pass.
This Air native loves adventure too much to stay at home: Aquarius hears the song of sea maids more often and (s)he follows it. And "home" is the place you enjoy the most. Aquarius is very independent, and this will hurt you, because it will increase your feeling of insecurity (that is characteristic of many Crabs) and your jealousy.
Besides that, Aquarius has a terrible, fantastic, but rather irritating style to tell it as it is. To an Aquarius, there is no diplomacy, gentleness or other things like these. Truth is one and, whether it hurts or not, it must be told.
Not to mention that sentimental effusions are a catastrophe to Aquarius, while you would simply not be a Cancer if you didn't have such effusions from time to time... That doesn't mean Aquarius doesn't need love or can't share feelings, but (s)he does it in a much colder, more detached and "universal" way than you do: Aquarius loves the world, you need to love ONE person.
Aquarius is more social and more sociable than Cancer, meaning that (s)he loves being around friends, socializing, and (s)he is much better at communicating with more people. You like going out, too, but Aquarius prefers the activities outside home much more than you do and many times you just don't have the power to follow him/her wherever his/her born curiosity takes him/her to.
Aquarius is the innovator of the zodiac: that means (s)he is very liberal in thinking, in morality, a true reformer. On the other hand, you are the conservative (and the keeper) of the zodiac. Your tastes are probably so different that I wonder where you found each other.
Aquarius' eccentricity and the moods of the Moon that governs Cancer will collide quite often and it wouldn't surprise me if you were the one saying: "that's it, I can't take it anymore!" Aquarius simply can't understand your mysterious soul, full of emotions and guided by intuition: (s)he can't see anything that is beautiful about you, because his/her eyes can't see the mysteries of the Water.
Sexually, you will probably get along just fine, at the beginning at least. It's hard not to feel excellent with this imaginative Aquarius. But, even so, after a while you'll feel that (s)he's not there with you, although (s)he is near you. It's like (s)he is in some place else at the same time: Aquarius doesn't get involved enough.
Think twice before starting this relationship, dear Cancer: the physical attraction is important but for a long-term relationship you need many other things in common. You'll surely tell yourself that you can change and adapt, that Aquarius is worth all this, because (s)he has such a refined spirit that charmed you, such a mysterious look, etc. But remember that the only relationship in which it is worth staying more than a week is the one allowing you to be yourself every day. Otherwise, it simply isn't worth the effort.
