Cancer and Virgo Overview
The relationship between a Cancer and Virgo can seem like an odd and unusual pairing to others. From a distance and on the surface, it will appear that neither of these two have anything in common. When you take a more in-depth look, there is one quality that they share, and that is their crankiness.
Cancer is a water sign. Cancer is symbolized by the Crab, and they are known to be overly emotional and are continually complaining about what bothers them. Virgo is a practical earth sign that is symbolized by the pure, virginal maiden. Virgo’s aren’t as sensitive as Cancer’s, but they are incredibly expressive about their discontent, and when something bothers them. Together, they will find a mutual harmony in their ability to complain to each other about the woes of life.
Virgo has a sense of logic and intellect, while Cancer leans on their intuitive nature, this healthy difference improves the relationship compatibility of this couple. When a Cancer dates a Virgo, they need to learn to become more practical and look into life through an intellectual lens, while the Virgo partner needs to have more trust in their intrinsic, intuitive nature. Virgo and Cancer Compatibility can be given a huge boost just by following these simple practices in life.[toc]
Cancer and Virgo Match
Both Virgo and Cancer are feminine signs, and they are both relatively timid and reserved in their own way. They do not like to be the center of attention, and they both tend to retreat into isolation when faced with troubling and challenging situations. When in a relationship, they will both retreat into safety together, and they can create somewhat of a safe haven between each other in the relationship. They will protect each other from the dangers and disappointments of the world.
Virgo has the trait of the Healer archetype, and Cancer has the Homemaker Archetype. Together, they create an amazingly loving and nurturing home where they always have each other’s best interests at heart. Cancer has the intrinsic ability to take care of their loved ones under an emotional umbrella of affection, while Virgo has more of a practical approach towards the same kind of care for their loved ones.

Marital and Romantic Bond between Cancer and Virgo
Virgo and Cancer are both known to be healers and nurturers. Cancer is a lot like a mother, always caring, being there for those in need, especially others who need an ear to talk to and those in need of some emotional support. Virgo, on the other hand, is not the best emotional support, but they can encourage anyone to heal their physical body and spiritual state.
Virgo’s promote purity, and that includes purity of spirit, body, and energy. Virgo’s help people to remove the elements and influences in their lives that are impure so that they can become whole again. Due to this healing nature of Cancer and Virgo, it makes sense that they make a good match, as they both care about the greater wellbeing of others.
Although they can care for and heal others, they do struggle when it comes to helping and healing themselves. They both experience negative thoughts that cause them depression, negativity, and anxiety. Due to this, Cancer’s and Virgo’s suffer from physical and emotional ailments regularly.
Both Virgo and Cancer put tremendous importance into their home life. They are both homebodies and prefer to stay in and watch a movie over going out and socializing. Together, they will aim to create the most beautiful, loving, and harmonious homeplace, with a secure future.
Both signs are not bothered by the social pressure of their peers, nor are they interested in having an exciting social life. Cancer and Virgo can have a deep companionship just by staying in each other’s presence. They could have many children and pets together and focus on building a family!
Emotional and Sexual Bond between Cancer and Virgo
The Virgo will be very sympathetic and caring toward the woes that the Cancer goes through, more so than any other zodiac sign. However, just like the other signs, they do have a limit when it comes to how much they can take. When the Cancer’s negativity and moodiness get too much for Virgo to handle, Virgo will lash out and become critical towards the Cancer and accuse the Cancer of being weak with no backbone. Once this happens, the Cancer will sink even deeper into melancholy.
Cancer needs to understand that the Virgo can only handle so much negativity before they lose their cool. Virgo expects a level of self-confidence and inner strength from other people, and if they can see the Cancer has very little inner strength, it can irritate them. The Virgo will, however, try and lead the Cancer to find their own inner strength.
Virgo’s practical approach towards life will captivate their Cancer partner, and they will incorporate it into their domestic life. Virgo’s emotionless attitude towards many things in life can sometimes frustrate their partner, but Cancer’s caring nature quickly solves it.
The sexual chemistry between these two will not be potent, nor will it be very weak. The sexual bond between Cancer and Virgo takes time to grow; however, over time, they will be able to understand each other’s sexual needs completely.
