LOVE AND MARRIAGE
Leo will have a lot of trouble breaking through the protective shell of the Cancerian because the crab likes to hide his/her feelings inside and shows the world a very different image of being thicker skinned than they really are. Eventually Leo will break through and then he or she will find a very sensitive person with feelings that are easily damaged.
Cancer is initially attracted to Leos regal bearing and fun loving manner, but shortly Cancer will find out just how different their value system is from one another and the fiery ardor of Leo will cause Cancer to feel that real love cannot last with such intensity and begins to doubt Leos heartfelt words of love. Being Moody and easily hurt by almost everything that is said will cause Cancer to sulk for days and this will not go over very big with Leo, who has no time for someone who cannot keep up with him/her.
The quiet outer facade' of Cancer was possibly the attraction for Leo and Cancer will do well to try to be everything that Leo expects in a mate. Cancer can provide, totally by instinct, the kind of home Leo wants and expects and this alone can heal many wounds. Leos occasional, wildly extravagant moods will aggravate the economical values of Cancer. Cancer worries about the future and the future is the furthermost thing from Leos mind and only amuses him/her.
Both Leo and Cancer feel they should be the 'boss' and the home loving, nurturing, Cancer will spend more time sulking than talking unless he or she is allowed to make most of the decisions. This situation could not be tolerated by Leo who must be in the limelight, or be gone. Sexually, Leos demands can get excessive as their appetites vary considerably. With all the differences in personalities clashing constantly this could be a shaky union at best, but with a more considerate and giving attitude on the part of Leo, and the positive type of Cancerian it can be made to work. Otherwise, this is not a match made in Heaven.
A partnership between these two will seldom workout as Leo will soon grow tired of the constant complaints and negative attitude of the Cancerian who will spend a lot of time angry and sulking if he or she is not allowed to play the role of fearless leader. The water signs do well in designing but are too emotional to make partnerships a workable objective unless the time and date of the birth acts to change some of the emotional attitudes of Cancer and the person himself (or herself) changes to a more positive type of personality.
I cannot suggest strongly enough that this is a general reading for the signs. To get a true picture of your own relationship you should get a compatibility chart done.
