Pisces men and Cancer women are highly compatible because they share many personality traits. Pisces and Cancer are both water signs, which means people born under those signs are sensitive, intuitive and family-oriented. They also desire high levels of attention and share a strong physical chemistry.
Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the planet of illusion and dreams; therefore, Pisces men tend to be artistic and creative. Cancer women are highly sensitive, loyal and caring. They help Pisces men realize their dreams by providing them with a safe, stable home environment. When both signs join together, it is a highly ambitious pairing and often achieves a great deal of success.
The similarities between Cancer and Pisces bring the potential for conflict, however. People born under both signs experience mood swings and have a tendency to be introverted. If these tendencies are left unchecked, they can become detrimental in a relationship. To avoid emotional clashes, it is best for each partner to set aside personal time outside the relationship. This can help each partner let off steam with friends and family. It also gives the Pisces man the space he needs to create.
Cancer women have a tendency to become depressed. This can be avoided if the Pisces man spends a lot of time with his partner, offering her compliments and acknowledging her contributions to the relationship. Cancer loves to be acknowledged and appreciated.
