Aries and Cancer

Why they clash: Cancer is home oriented, a bit of an old soul, and isn’t a fan of unpredictability. Aries is spontaneous, constantly on the move, and can be unnecessarily blunt at times. Cancers are nurturers at heart, and so this relationship can often resemble more of a parental nature than a romantic one. While they may care for each other, their most basic and foundational desires don’t line up, and while Cancers may try to bend a little for the Aries, Aries’ stubborn nature means they won’t really return the favor.

How it can still work: If these two take the time to be friends for an extended period of time. Despite their differing views, Sagittarius and Taurus are both supportive signs who desire to bring out the best in others- even if they don’t entirely understand the other person. Taurus is a dedicated steadfast sign that will always come through for those they care about- Sagittarius signs do enjoy…
