There are numerous types of relationships to explore when considering compatibility between two signs. We grow up in a parent/child dynamic. Outside our family, we form friendships with other children and eventually other adults. We look for and find love. And, we go to work and have careers, interacting with employers and co-workers.
Each sign-to-sign interaction guides our behavior in every relationship. Read through this section to find out how each of the above dynamics works astrologically so you can experience the optimal way to communicate and get along with your sign and all the other signs.
The Cancer-and-Virgo interaction is one of the best combinations. As the “I nurture” sign of the Zodiac, Cancer is caring, sympathetic, and compassionate. Virgo is the “I serve” sign of the Zodiac, and is diligent, methodical, and perfectionist. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) is very likely and quite positive, for both signs. These energies complement one another, both in terms of element and modality (one being cardinal and the other being mutable).
Cancer Parent/Virgo Child
The Cancer parent and Virgo child work well together since they both want to help and take care of others. The Virgo child will be eager to learn, and they will appreciate the Cancer parent, who takes parenting most seriously, knowing how important it is to teach children to become adults, while still getting to enjoy being children. The Cancer parent will enjoy the effort the Virgo child makes to learn and be helpful to the family. These two can easily enjoy a “family first” dynamic, while also being the type to help anyone around them who is in need, especially other children.
Virgo Parent/Cancer Child
The Virgo parent and Cancer child is a very good combination, but not as “natural” as the Cancer parent, Virgo child. The Virgo parent will be ready to teach all his or her children the “right way” to do things and behave. The Cancer child will want to be nurtured by the parent and will come to understand that Virgo’s way of showing love is to take care of the little things in life, and as parents, to make sure their child or children are safe and have their needs met. The Cancer child will appreciate the consistency, and even the perfectionist side, of his or her Virgo parent.
Cancer Friend/Virgo Friend
Cancer and Virgo friends make for a wonderful and life-long friendship. You could easily find these two doing volunteer work together or helping other friends whenever they are in need, emotionally or practically. The Cancer friend can help the Virgo friend be more in touch with his or her emotions, while the Virgo friend can help the Cancer friend deal with practical matters and problems in useful ways. This friendship can be one of the most enjoyable, not only for the two friends but anyone who is friends with them as well.
Cancer Lover/Virgo Lover
This romance, love, sex combination can be pleasant and very steady over the long term. Cancer has an intense desire to love and be loved, which can overwhelm many of the other signs, especially fire and air signs. Virgo is deeply practical, and very attentive, learning the likes and dislikes of those he or she loves. They will do the little things that really warm a Cancer’s heart and Cancer will give his or her whole heart to those they love, but they will deeply appreciate the practical care a Virgo brings to the relationship. Sexually, they will enjoy each other and consider sex and vital part of the relationship that is maintained through regular intimacy.
Cancer Employer/Virgo Employee
The Cancer employer and the Virgo employee is one of the best since the signs are in power positions that align with their modalities. Cancer is a cardinal sign, which leads and initiates through emotion and the responsibility they feel to care for others. As employers, they want to make sure their employees are “taken care of”. Virgo is a mutable sign, that wants to serve and help, so being an employee is very natural to them. They will experience great joy doing their work and receiving nearly loving appreciation from a Cancer boss, who values their work ethic and sense of responsibility.
Virgo Employer/Cancer Employee
If the employer is a Virgo and the employee is Cancer, this combination is very good, but not quite as flowing as the Cancer employer/Virgo employee dynamic. Essentially, the Virgo boss wants the organization to run efficiently, which means employees being productive and happy. A Cancer employee will have his or her pulse on the emotional state of the organization, and a Virgo boss can really gain a lot from checking in with the Cancer employee about the emotional status of everyone working with them, and under the Virgo employer.
Cancer Co-worker/Virgo Co-worker
This combination is an excellent one. These two will be very supportive of each other and everyone else they work with. Having these two as co-workers is a real blessing for an organization. They will likely fall into a very natural rhythm by which the Cancer takes care of the emotional problems and concerns of the job while the Virgo takes care of the practical problems and concerns of the job.
