Sagittarius and Cancer? Fire and Water?
Aren't you, dear Sagittarius, suffering from affective generosity by any chance? It would be good if you wondered sometimes, in order to avoid sufferance caused by strong emotions. The Sagittarius-Cancer couple can make some sentimental mistakes precisely due to the profound love they are capable of. This is why their common lesson is the sense of measure.
Because Cancer is extremely sensitive and sympathetic, and Sagittarius is extremely overwhelming and protective, they often end up sparing each other of the possible sufferings, convinced that this way they avoid hurting their feelings.
For example, neither of them dares say what (s)he doesn't like about the other one directly - because Cancer is afraid of being abandoned, and Sagittarius is not concerned with the question of truth when loving. That's why we can never know what is going to happen to the Sagittarius-Cancer couple.
Sagittarius and Cancer can both dream of the same trips or the same traditional family lifestyle. Or they can be both disappointed because Sagittarius thinks (s)he is protecting a fragile human being - which Cancer is not - and Cancer thinks (s)he is protecting a Sagittarius that can prove to be a family man/woman - which is very seldom possible.
Cancer and Sagittarius are both governed by Jupiter and that means Fire and Water can mix in such a way that Fire keeps burning and Water doesn't evaporate - because both signs have a very important "nurturing" function for the others: Cancer nurtures the soul by his/her deeply maternal and careful nature, governed by Jupiter; therefore, we can talk about affective generosity, as any form of nurturing is endowed with the miraculous energy of love.
In conclusion, Sagittarius and Cancer can move on from the fascinating erotic attraction of the beginning to beatitude, avoiding the lunar emotional depressions or Jupiter's egocentrism.
