Leo and Cancer. Fire and Water? You'd better not... but you'll see for yourself.
It's true you are both romantic. But in so different ways! Cancer is often a very sensitive and sometimes even fragile person, that handles an ocean of contradictory feelings perfectly. To Leo, the sunlight and the accuracy of expressing yourself are equally vital.
Every time you try to have a conversation with a Crab or make him/her express and explain his/her feelings, you'll get the impression that Cancer doesn't know what (s)he wants. Cancer is very vague in anything (s)he does, but especially in expressing him/herself.
Of course, Cancer will fall in love with you, because the attraction of the opposites works very well astrologically. Cancer will know how to take care of you, because this is the role of this sun sign, to protect. But YOU will be the one deciding whether the relationship has to go on or not, because Cancer's high sensitiveness and the moods (s)he is famous for will soon exhaust you. In a word, there is love between you two, but the communication will be difficult, to say the least. In the worst case, there won't be any.
To you, dear Leo, a relationship that is not exciting, that does not stimulate you and in which you are not the centre of the universe (as you deserve) is not worth trying. On the other side, Cancer, although (s)he is willing to make you the Sun of his/her galaxy, is a more domestic native and (s)he won't be able to satisfy your taste for adventure or keep up with you.
Cancer is also rather economical (if not cheap!) and your expenses will knock him/her down. Cancer needs stability, peace and a large amount of love per day. And although you are the most passionate of the natives, you'll get bored with his/her demands very quickly because, let's be serious, who can offer so much love every day, for years?
Love is fervent to any Leo, but responsible and tranquil to any Cancer. You will certainly be fascinated with the love a Cancer can offer you, but only for a while. At some point, your Cancer's possessiveness and jealousy, the tendency to spend more time in than out will exasperate or bore you. Or both.
Often, when two sun signs follow one another in the zodiac, each of them has what the other lacks. Instinctively, you might realize that Cancer has some qualities that you would like to have yourself.
Cancer is the most loving and protective of all signs, but also the most emotional, partly because Cancer is a Water sign and partly because Cancer is governed by the Moon, whose movement in the sky is faster than that of other planets. This is what makes Cancer be so changing and capricious.
Moreover, Cancer doesn't open up too easily so it will be difficult to convince him/her to tell you what's wrong: (s)he wants you to understand without words. On the other hand, Leo is the "telling" sign, to you things are better solved if partners tell each other their discontent because the intuitive level doesn't work for you.
Cancer will like and even be fascinated with the intensity you live your life with. But after a while (s)he won't be able to keep up with you. Cancer will like your generosity, until it begins relying on the family money, which (s)he wants to administer differently.
You will never have the patience to stay in the house all the time unless you try very hard. And since your charm consists of impetuosity, it is worth trying to change very much only if your partner can really offer you an ideal relationship.
Cancer's habit of crying over spilt milk or reproaching is another thing that could annoy you, because you like starting from certain facts and the past, which cannot be changed anymore, is not worth being discussed and remembered all the time.
If you want to keep your Cancer, you could try things like: ask him/her what bothered him/her and insist, because (s)he gets out of his/her shell very hard and confides even harder. Spend as much time as possible at home, this is the place where your Cancer feels best. And give him/her the moments of privacy (s)he needs so much, to recharge his/her batteries. Try to understand Cabcer's tendency to save money: in this respect, Cancer always thinks about the next day.
Sexually, Cancer will show you how much and how differently (s)he can love. Cancer's care and loveliness, the desire to please you, the way (s)he notices the most insignificant details and prolongs the passionate moments or makes love declarations in a loud voice, all this will fascinate you this time. If only could all the problems be solved in bed...
But attention: although Cancer gives very much and does not say that (s)he wants something in return, in fact, your Cancer expects the same commitment from you. From all points of view, not just the sexual one. This is why you will often see him/her upset out of the blue: you haven't given him/her something that (s)he was entitled to, without saying it.
Precisely because your Cancer has offered you so much, (s)he is expecting the same thing from you. But (s)he doesn't say it. You have to realize it. At some point, this will become very annoying to you. The adoration Cancer is willing to offer you doesn't completely justify what you have to give in return. And, as a native with a great need of "depending on someone", of relying on somebody else, Cancer is always asking for a lot from you.
In a Leo-Cancer relation, guess who will be the first to get bored?
